20 Luxury Beauty Gifts For the Fanciest Person on Your List
If money is no object for you — or if you're just feeling extra generous this year — then an over-the-top beauty gift is the ultimate way to show someone you love them. The world of fancy, upscale beauty products is a wonderland, and there's no better excuse for indulging in fantasy than the holiday season. From a flatiron bedazzled with actual crystals to a magnetic clay mask backed by a music icon, these gifts ahead are sure to impress even the most #blessed among us.
Amika The Dazzler Genuine Crystal Styler
We guarantee whoever you're shopping for would've never thought of getting themselves a bedazzled flatiron. Give Amika's The Dazzler Genuine Crystal Styler ($950) to the most extra person in your life. They'll thank you for its KirKira+ friendly, Instagram-ready packaging.
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Dreamy Box of Magic
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Dreamy Box of Magic ($384) includes the celebrity makeup artist's beloved moisturizer (hands-down one of the best on the market), along with Scent of a Dream, a lemon, jasmine, and tuberose-infused perfume. The gorgeous crimson box is pretty irresistible, too.
Tatcha The Obon Tray Nourishing Ritual
New year, new skincare regimen. Tatcha's The Obon Tray Nourishing Ritual ($335) includes its cult-favorite cleansing oil, exfoliator, essence, and gel cream — basically, everything needed to glow in 2018. The cherry on top is a golden tray you can use to display all the goods.
Hourglass Confession Lipstick Archive
Thirty lipstick shades make up the Hourglass Confession Lipstick Archive ($650). It comes with two slim gold applicators that any of the hues can fit into, so it not only looks sleek but also saves space in your vanity (and purses!).
Artis Elite 10 Gold Brush Set
Artis brushes are pricey for a reason. The fine-bristled tools are unmatched in the way they practically airbrush your face IRL. Seeing the Artis Elite 10 Gold Brush Set ($495) under the tree would make anyone jump for joy. Why get one when you can get 10?
Lancome x Jacquemus Nouvelle Vague Makeup Kit
If you know someone who loves fashion just as much as they love beauty, the Lancome x Jacquemus Nouvelle Vague Makeup Kit ($500) is the ideal gift. The pink, waterproof purse designed by Paris-based Jacquemus was created to work as a clutch, wristlet, crossbody, or even belt-purse (read: fancy fanny pack). Lancome essentials like L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick and Hypnose Star Waterproof Mascara are icing on the cake.
Alaïa Paris Eau de Parfum
While 2017 will forever be remembered as the year we lost Azzedine Alaïa, his memory could at least be kept alive thanks to the Alaïa Paris Eau de Parfum ($2,500). It's inspired by his childhood in Tunisia with freesia and peony notes, and there are only 300 bottles worldwide (hence the hefty price tag). And for anyone who questions all that cash spent on a bottle of fragrance, take a cue from Cher Horowitz and say, "You don't understand; this is an Alaïa!"
Ziip Beauty Ziip Device + Golden Conductive Gel Duo
The Ziip Beauty Ziip Device + Golden Conductive Gel Duo ($495) includes a duo that, when used together, stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration. It's also tiny and compact, so you could bring it along even when you travel.
Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder Light Box Noir Beauty Set
The Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder Light Box Noir Beauty Set ($1,500) is such a dream. Aside from the limited-edition mini black and gold vanity, it includes all of VB's bestselling lipsticks, eye shadows, and mascara.
Apa Beauty Clean White Sonic Toothbrush
We know, we know, who gives a toothbrush? Before you balk, consider that the Apa Beauty Clean White Sonic Toothbrush ($250) is not only a major aesthetic upgrade from your average electric, but it also features three modes for whitening, massaging, and cleaning. Whoever gets this present will appreciate its practicality — and style.
Clive Christian Queen Anne Noble Collection Gift Set
If you know someone obsessed with the British royals (with the recent engagement, who could blame them?) the Clive Christian Queen Anne Noble Collection Gift Set ($495) is a delightful gift. Inspired by British history and nobility, it includes four different botanical perfumes.
By Terry Preciosity Prestige Collector Beauty Set
Other than including 18 glorious beauty products, the By Terry Preciosity Prestige Collector Beauty Set ($550) can also function as a pretty jewelry case once you've inevitably used up the goods.
Christian Louboutin Tornade Blonde Perfume
If Christian Louboutin's "bloody shoes" are out of budget, the Christian Louboutin Tornade Blonde Perfume ($320) captures the brand's luxury at a relatively lower price point. Tornade Blonde is a floral scent, made with notes of red rose, violet, and cassis.
Nannette de Gaspé Art of Masquologie
The Nannette de Gaspé Art of Masquologie ($425) kit features five dry masks meant for different features: your face, neck, mouth, eyes, and hands. If you've never used a dry mask before, know that it comes without all the gunk of a regular sheet mask but deposits good-for-skin ingredients activated by body temperature.
MDNA Skin Rejuvenator Set
Arguably the most popular product from Madonna's debut skincare line, the MDNA Skin Rejuvenator Set ($600) features a magnetic clay mask. The accompanying applicator lifts it (and impurities) from the skin and leaves behind nourishing ingredients. It also just looks damn cool.
