Chinese New Year is this weekend, and starting Jan. 28, we'll be entering the Year of the Rooster according to the Chinese zodiac. There are many appropriate ways to celebrate, including visiting your local Chinatown to see firecracker ceremonies and dragon dancing, eating dumplings, and spreading goodwill. But this year, we're planning on stocking up on limited-edition beauty treats created especially for the lunar holiday.
In case you are curious about the prevalent use of red and gold among these products, it's because of the colors' symbolism in Chinese culture. Red signifies joy, prosperity, and good fortune (hence why wedding gowns are crimson in China), while gold represents good luck. These all seem like wonderful sentiments to carry into a new year, don't you think? Read on to see some of our favorite picks — including highlighters, lip colors, and skin care — for Chinese New Year!
