4. Blast into the stars: Cle De Peau’s mini lipstick set
Cle De Peau’s limited edition holiday collection captures the magic of constellations. The illustrations are hand-drawn by jewellery designed Elie Top and the result is too pretty to resist. We’re not gonna lie – $165 for five mini lipsticks is pretty steep but the range of shades is great for every occasion.

Add three new lip creams to your list – Loud Speak’r, Rowdy Roadie, and Crowd Surf’r. The semi-matte lip creams are packed with hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E, and lip-loving amino acid technology for some plumping and conditioning action.
