The latest and greatest makeup collections we can’t wait to get our hands on
Eyes on the prize
Just like a meerkat on high alert, we here at Buro have our eyes peeled and our social media feeds on constant refresh for the coolest beauty collections, especially given this time of year. And giving into our insatiable desire for makeup (you can never have enough), a handful of brands have answered the call in grand fashion, dropping sneak peeks of exciting collaborations or soon to launch Christmas goodies. While it's still early days when it comes to the festive fever, here are five collections deserving of a spot on your wishlist already:
1. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna
If you haven't gotten wind of this makeup shakeup by now, you need to get out from under your rock. Dubbed the industry disruptor by many a beauty guru, Fenty Beauty's Galaxy collection comes on the heels of its high-profile global launch, flaunting RiRi's first ever eyeshadow palette as well as a four-piece lipstick lineup. Take our money already.
2. Colourpop Cosmetics x My Little Pony
Our inner child is squealing in unadulterated delight because this is the makeup edit our eight year old selves have long dreamt of. You've got unicorn-coloured everything, from three shimmerbomb Super Shock eyeshadows and an amethyst highlighter to a brush set and a keepsake metallic pouch. To riff off My Little Pony's tagline, makeup is magic.
3. Kat Von D Beauty
Diehard fans of Kat Von D will know she pulls out all the stops when it comes to her Christmas collection, and the new Saint & Sinner palette fits the bill to a T. Housed in a case made to look like a gothic, old world cathedral — hello, it's a cathedral — 24 pigment-packed shades line the inside, with every hue inspired by the colours of the stained glass windows. And just like its name, you get 12 softer and more everyday shadows, while the other half are bold pops of colour for that electrifying touch.
4. 3CE x Maison Kitsuné
Heads up, makeup collectors: The next big beauty-fashion crossover has landed. In a meeting of cool and cute, cult Korean brand 3CE and Maison Kitsuné have come together for a limited edition collection you totally want to seen be with. Cushion compacts, blushers and even a collectible tin brush case are all stamped with the signature fox and brand logo.
5. Too Faced
Punchy slogans and pretty pink packaging aside, Too Faced's festive offerings are the ultimate bang for buck option to get and gift (for yourself or otherwise). This year's palette plays on the concept of a diary planner, and is adorably named the 'Boss Lady Beauty Agenda' kit. On top of this 30-eyeshadow smorgasbord, Too Faced is also dropping the Chocolate Vault, which has every Chocolate Bar palette ever, three Chocolate Soleil bronzers, and three Melted Chocolate lipsticks. Yaassss.
