There’s an industry saying that comes to mind during the gifting period of 2021: Beauty always fits. Limited edition and the best ultra-chic makeup of the season is minimal (Chantecaille’s Restorative Lip Balm, packaged in a compact box shaped like a little white caped box) , is absolutely gorgeous (Dior’s 35-piece lipstick set is arranged in a logo- such as a velvet case), and easy to share, thanks to the one-size-fits-all nature of Victoria Beckham Beauty eyeliner. In the final moments of the gift-giving season, makeup is less personal than perfume (although there are many normal scent flies to get), more fun than a card, and light enough for nationwide delivery without the stress of too many bubbles.
In the cultural sphere, make-up has become a powerhouse of its own. The famous cosmetics boom is the latest phenomenon: Pop stars Harry Styles, Halsey, and Addison Rae join space this year only, while Lady Gaga and Rihanna feel like long-time professionals after launching their line in the late 2010s. However, the most luxurious pieces are often tailored, such as Valentino’s compact powder that can be used as an accessory. crossbody bag, a Tom Ford yellow leather lipstick case, Gucci logo decals, and a YSL Beauty eyeshadow palette that mimics a quilted clutch. Insiders know that, for many fashion houses, the beauty actually runs the business. These pocket-sized luxuries are often the ones that disappear most quickly around the holidays, making designer pieces even more collectible. This fall’s Hermès nail polish (a little bit of everything worth talking about) were sold out at regular retailers, which proves the point — but we found a source with express delivery.
