Spoiler alert: Any beauty fan you know is secretly hoping to unwrap La Mer's holiday 2019 collection. Or, well, anything from La Mer at all. Sure, they may not have expressly asked for the brand's $335 moisturizer — but if you've stuck around the skincare scene long enough and haven't tried Crème de la Mer, it's at the top of your to-do list. The cult-favorite brand's holiday 2019 offering is no different, too; launched just in time for early gift shopping, the curated collection features a mix of La Mer fan favorites on top of a completely new highlighter launch.
And like its iconic skin care, La Mer's new (and limited-edition) Glow Highlighter is particularly innovative. The $105 dual illuminator features two product pans — a traditional pressed powder highlighter and an oil-cream formula — so that shoppers can choose their preferred glow depending on their mood. For a dewy finish, dip into the cream highlighter; later, swipe on a touch of shimmer courtesy of the pressed powder.
Regardless of which side you use, you'll be left with a subtle, rose gold-colored sheen. Both formulas offer a dose of La Mer's Miracle Broth, too, the very same ingredient used throughout the brand's swoon-worthy skincare line (including Crème de la Mer, of course).
Looking for an even more extensive gift? Although you can expect any pre-packaged La Mer kit to be incredibly luxe, it truly outdid itself this year when it comes to its holiday 2019 gift sets. For the most part, each gift set is tailored towards specific needs; such as the $245 Replenishing Moisture Collection, or the $390 Soothing Moisture Collection.
Then, there is The Genaissance de la Mer Collection. Retailing for a cool $1,195, the jaw-dropping set includes a 150-milliliter bottle of The Infused Lotion (regularly $250), 30-milliliter The Serum Essence ($665), and 15-milliliter The Eye and Expression Cream ($425). Additionally, the Genaissance de la Mer Collection also includes a sleek metal vanity tray, which perfectly complements the silver components of the skincare products.
Is it extravagant? Yes. But if you're looking for a gift that'll truly wow — or want to save on the Genaissance de la Mer products you were already going to buy — then it's a smart move to make. Below, all of the La Mer pieces from the brand's new holiday 2019 collection to add to your wish list.
