With the holidays around the corner, finding that ultimate, end-all present can be tricky. Especially if you're shopping for the utterly beauty-obsessed. But fear not, this list of totally luxurious holiday 2016 beauty gifts will have you covered. Because, let's face it, whether you're searching for the perfect gift for a loved one or even yourself, those who live and breathe beauty can be difficult to shop for— is there even anything they don't already have? Which is why sometimes the best option is to gift something they would never buy for themselves.
Enter the most lavish and covetable products and collections you can imagine. I'm talking entire product lines, limited-edition bundles, all-in-one palettes, and even jumbo-sized cult-favorites. So whether your giftee lives for completing her collection of lippies, lusts over perfect palettes, or even just wishes she had a little bit more of her favorite skincare product (Oh, who am I kidding? It's probably all of the above), there's something here that she will be dying to unwrap.
