A Roundup Of Festive Makeup Launches: NARS, Marc Jacobs Beauty And M.A.C Cosmetics

Now that November’s upon us, we’re ready to declare this: let the holiday games begin! While we’ve previously covered some epic limited edition beauty collections, with many more e-mails making their way into our editorial inboxes all fast and furious,  it might be worthy to look at the dressed-up makeup series that took our breaths away. Here are three collections we’d want to jazz up our holiday looks — from NARS, Marc Jacobs Beauty, and M.A.C Cosmetics.


NARS gets “brazenly indulgent” this Holiday 2020, with sets and key products dripping in glorious gold. Their iconic essentials, Audacious Lipsticks included, come encased in limited edition gold packaging, and here, the brand handpicks five bestselling shades to highlight: a tan-rose Barbara, warm pink Anita, red currant Audrey, mahogany Mona, and the scarlet Rita.

An Iconic Glow Cheek Duo also brings together their cult shades of the peachy-pink Orgasm and the Lazada Bronzing Powder, both with subtle golden shimmer that’s ready to flatter. Elsewhere, we’re getting coveted new sets that ring in the festive season in metallic pouches, whether you’re looking at mini lipsticks, lip balms, or brushes.

Cute much? The cheeky cherry gets much-necessary love across Marc Jacobs Beauty’s beloved staples, with berry shades as well as a glitzy highlighter guaranteed to make your makeup look pop. The super-sized O!Mega Glaze All-Over Luminizer sees a limited edition warm peachy-gold hue called ‘Gilty’, while the always stunning Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eye Palette presents cherry-inspired hues that range from wearable neutrals and buttery mattes, to satin and metallic lamé, of juicy reds and berry.

There are also limited edition versions of the Velvet Noir mascara, inspired by Marc’s first beauty memory of his mother’s makeup routine, and a bright red lipstick for plush holiday lips — go ahead, take your (cherry) pick.

It looks like M.A.C Cosmetics is ready to celebrate the end of the year with a bang — for better than for worse. You’d have to feel a little glow of happiness when looking at the exciting ‘Frosted Firework’ collection, full of little explosive delights. Foil Shadows and Extra Dimension Skin Finish highlighters come embossed with that fireworks motif, while glow-getters might want to go for those iridescent Lipglasses for a dramatic sheen.

We also have to give mention to the many holiday kits and vaults that give some excellent value-for-money: there are mini lipstick sets going for a fraction of their actual worth, as well as eye kits and lipstick vaults that you’d want to split with your girl friends — if you can bear to part with them, that is.
