11 Amazing Beauty Products Launching In December

by Gina Jones 2

Getting excited about makeup launches is almost as fun as getting ready for the holidays, so why not combine the two and get excited about new beauty product launches in December 2016? These products will come just in time to add to your Christmas list, or to purchase for yourself as a treat after all that rigorous present buying. If you're feeling especially generous, you may even want to pass the excitement on to a friend and buy one of these 2016 holiday releases as a gift.

As most of the holiday collections are already out and ready to purchase for the end of the year, these are the ones left to anticipate for the final month of 2016. Be it a last minute present, a release you've been waiting for or just a reward for making it through a pretty shitty year, these products are sure to put a smile on the face of anyone who receives them.

Don't get too wrapped up in the spirit of giving and Christmas films on TV — if you're a true beauty aficionado, you need to be aware of what's new and what's yet to be announced. And to help you with that, here's a handy dandy list of what's left to be launched this December.

1. Too Faced x Kat Von D Better Together Palette

Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection, $65, Too Faced

The Too Faced x Kat Von D collaboration feels like it's been years in the making, but this December, you can finally get your hands on the gorgeously packaged makeup set. Available online and in stores on Dec. 26, get ready to throw any money you get gifted at this one of kind set.

2. Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Palette

Sweet Peach Glow Palette, $42, Too Faced

Another Too Faced palette to treat yourself to this December — the return of the peach scented Sweet Peach Glow Palette that everyone's been waiting for. As of right now, we're unsure of an official release date for the Too Faced return, but co-founder and creative director Jerrod Blandino has promised a December release.

3. Kat Von D Alchemist Palette

Alchemist Holographic Palette, $32, Sephora

Finally! A highlighting palette from Kat Von D. Available just in time to get your glow perfected for any holiday snaps. Falling either side of Christmas, this highlighter palette is available online Dec. 24 and in store Dec. 26.

4. Mariah Carey x M.A.C. Lip Glass

Mariah Carey Lip Glass, $19, M.A.C.

Mariah Carey's MAC collaboration is coming just in time for the holidays and most excitingly, five Lip Glass shades that are sure to cement the return of glossy lips in 2017. This one launches a little sooner than the others on this list, and is available — with the full collection — on Dec 15.

5. Cryptic Cosmetics Matte Lip Veils

Matte Lip Veil, $17, Cryptic Cosmetics

Promised "before Christmas" Cryptic Cosmetics are launching four or five new liquid lipsticks — and one of the only colors we know so far is this one, "Rust In Peace." With such a vague release date, at least you can be assured you can cop this before Dec. 25.

6. Sugarpill Liquid Lipstick

Trinket Liquid Lip Color, $18, Sugarpill

This pumpkin spice color is also pumpkin spice scented. What more do you want from a lippy? As of right now, the public only knows this is definitely a December release — with no official due date yet.

7. Mariah Carey x M.A.C. Highlighter

Mariah Carey Extra Dimension Highlighter, $46, M.A.C.

Who wouldn't want to cop a Mariah Carey approved highlighter? Part of the larger Mariah Carey and M.A.C. collaboration but one of the most exciting products of the bunch. Again, get ready to buy this product on Dec. 15.

8. Mariah Carey x M.A.C. Blush

Mariah Carey Powder Blush, $24, Macy's

OK, this collection is all worth getting excited for. This stunning blush is also set to launch this December.

9. Sugarpill Pressed Eye Shadow

Pressed Eye Shadow, $13, Sugarpill

Thought the new liquid lipstick was Sugarpill was too good to be true? Think again: There's a matching eye shadow set to return with the new lip color. Just as we're unsure of the return date for the new Sugarpill lipstick, so we must wait for news on this eyeshadow.

10. Farsali Unicorn Tears Serum

Unicorn Tears Serum & Primer, $54, Farsali

Preorders start on Dec. 7 for a facial serum that sounds like it's going to change your entire life. (Or at least your beauty routine.)

11. GlamGlow Matte Glow Moisturizer VOLCASMIC

Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer, $54, Glam Glow

This incredible satin finish moisturizer contains volcanic minerals that keep shine under control and hydrate and brighten the skin. The launch is set for late December, making it the perfect product to ring in the new year.

With just a couple of weeks left of November and one more full month left of 2016, you won't have to wait too long to get your hands on these amazing products — though it's totally understandable that the anticipation might be killing you.
