2021 is coming to an end but the beauty launches are going strong until the very end. This year, you might have curated or updated your skin-care and makeup routines including some of the latest products from the past roundups. Now, it’s time to finish them off with December’s best beauty launches.
From a stunning makeup collaboration between BLACKPINK’s Lisa Manobal and MAC to plenty of holiday kits that are perfecting for gifting (if you have waited until the last minute!) and perfectly sized cases (for all those TSA-friendly products!), there’s plenty of worthy additions to your beauty cabinet dealing this month — and we’ve rounded them all up for you so you don’t miss a thing.
MAC x BLACKPINK’s Lisa Manobal Collection
Lisa’s first MAC collection is finally here. The BLACKPINK member herself says she “wanted the M·A·C x L Eye Shadow Palette to be a versatile lineup that can effortlessly create naturally soft and sultry looks for every day – or glam looks for a night out by embracing a bold balance of mattes, shimmers and glitters.”
The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid Cleanser
With its lightly foaming and creamy formula, this new cleanser from the beloved TikTok brand deeply cleanses your skin without stripping it and even removes your makeup and SPF.
Herbivore Moon Fruit Retinol Alternative Sleep Mask
Back by popular demand is Herbivore’s beloved overnight mask — this time, better than ever. With a new and improved formula and new earth-friendly packaging, the mask combines bakuchiol and antioxidant-rich superfruits to help smooth fine lines and hydrate dry skin.
True Botanicals Lip Balm
True Botanical’s latest lip balm is made with biocompatible plant extracts that pamper and nourish your lips.
Ceremonia Travel Kit
If you’re always on the go, this Ceremonia Travel Kit is exactly what you need. The travel set comes with Ceremonia’s signature Mesh Pouch, a Spa Headband, and all of the brand’s best-selling products. If you wish you could just make your home smell like Ceremonia’s products though, the Latinx brand also launched a scented candle that features the signature Ceremonia scent.

EOS Santa’s Peppermint Bark Lip Balm
Just in time for the holidays, EOS has launched the perfect holiday lip balm. Formulated with shea butter, coconut oil, and jojoba oil, this little egg tastes like melted white chocolate blended with candy canes – yum!
