We like to think of November as one long month of pre-Christmas prep, and November 1 is the first day it becomes socially acceptable to blast Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You." What can we say? We love the holidays (and Mariah). With Thanksgiving and the holidays just around the corner, we’ve got a whole slew of lust-worthy beauty products on the mind just begging to be gifted (even if it's just to ourselves). From an iridescent magical highlighter worthy of a unicorn to the cutest new collection with Japanese artist Murakami, steady yourselves for some major beauty eye candy ahead.
Keep scrolling for 12 products we can't wait to snatch up in November!
Rituel de Fille's new highlighters are the stuff dreams are made of. The texture is creamy and blends beautifully when you tap it along your cheekbones and the high points of your face, and the three colors—Ghost Light (iridescent with a purple tinge), Anthelion (golden), and Phosphene (pinky-peach)—are truly flattering on every skin tone. We especially can't stop wearing Ghost Light—the gleaming, Snow Queen–esque holographic effect is perfect for the upcoming winter.
At just $3 a pop, these tinted balms from ChapStick are a total steal… So you may as well buy one in every color. Our favorite is Rose Petal, which gives just a hint of pink and helps lips feel smooth and moisturized.
This fragrant, luxurious oil has become our favorite post-shower ritual. Slather it from head to toe (you can even use it in your hair) to lock in moisture, and then breathe in the jasmine ylang-ylang scent to feel utterly relaxed and pampered.
This mask is meant to be worn under your makeup—yes, you read that correctly. Intended to act as a breathable anti-pollution shield, it's made with 35 different actives and 11 antioxidants that brighten, protect, and soothe.
Liquid Moondust is exactly what it sounds like: glittery and sparkly with a diamond-like effect. Paint it along your lid and tap it in with your finger for a sheer wash of color, layer it for a more intense color payoff, or—our personal favorite—trace it along your lashline as a makeshift eyeliner.
We froth at the mouth at every new Byredo launch, and the new Belle de Tanger—made exclusively for Neiman Marcus—is no exception. The crisp Seville bitter orange grabs people’s attention; the creamy midnight violet and cashmere base note keeps it.
A chic, esthetician-started line, 001 London has made its way to the States, and we couldn’t be happier. The peel is made of pineapple enzymes and Muscovado sugar to gently exfoliate and slough off dead skin cells while a blend of luxe plan oils target dryness and dark spots.
Guerlain’s holiday 2016 collection was launched with supermodel Natalie Vodianova and is every bit as gilded and decadent as you’d imagine. We’re smitten with the bright pearly powders especially, which look as pretty dusted along your cheekbones as they do sitting on your vanity.
Famed Japanese designer Takashi Murakami's new holiday collection for Shu Uemura is pretty much the Instagram fodder of your dreams. We're obsessed with the whimsical and cheery designs and will happily place every item in the collection on proud display.
Forget everything you thought you knew about exfoliators. This gentle scrub from Shiva Rose is made with chickpea and sandalwood powder and sprinkled with rose buds, saffron threads, and coconut milk powder to brighten the skin and heal inflammation.
This matte cream lip color has a whipped texture that glides on light as a feather—then magically stays put. The full collection of shades will launch in January 2017, but in the meantime, you can snatch up this dusty rose shade as a sneak peek.
Coming out in late November, this luxurious cleansing set from Irish brand Pestle & Mortar is the Veuve Clicquot to your normal cleanser's $3 bottle of Andre. Erase is a nourishing cleansing balm that melts away makeup, SPF, and dirt; Renew is a lightweight gel cleanser that removes every trace of makeup and dirt while tightening the pores and improving your skin texture. Your skin is left feeling soft, hydrated, and comfortably clean.
