All The ‘Year of the Dragon’ Beauty Limited Editions That Celebrate CNY

Fierce and majestic, the dragon motifs come in blazing hot across this year’s limited edition beauty items, which honour the Year of the Dragon via creatively-done dragon scales and gold dragon-themed illustrations.

Dancing across bestselling serums and moisturisers, alongside exquisite palettes and lipsticks meant to symbolise luck and prosperity, highlights include shu uemura’s matte lipsticks engraved with dragon scales, and artist collaborations by luxury brands such as Clé de Peau and Lancôme that honour traditional Chinese artwork in modern styles.

Interestingly, with both Valentine’s Day and Lunar New Year falling within the same week, we’ve also observed some hidden hearts amidst the dragon scales, seen in makeup collections by NARS and M.A.C for instance. Clearly, this is a sign to put our best faces forward, whether we’re visiting grandma or on our next hot date.
