Aside from advent calendars and beauty gifts for the upcoming Christmas weekend, December brings about some unique collaborations. This month, Pat Mcgrath Labs debuts a Bridgerton-inspired body highlighter while Lancome partners with the recently popular Bearbrick to bring limited-edition soft matte lipsticks. Alongside new launches from OleHenriksen and Tarte, here are some beauty buys that may pique your interest.
OLEHENRIKSEN Dewtopia 5% Acid Firming Night Crème
The OLEHENRIKSEN Dewtopia range is expanding with the launch of the new night creme, inspired by its cult-favourite Dewtopia 20% Acid Night Treatment. It’s infused with chemical exfoliants of glycolic and lactic acids, which help to lift dead skin cells and impurities. The use of edelweiss stem cells in its formula also deeply hydrates, firms the skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Sephora
LANCÔME Bearbrick L’Absolue Rouge Intimatte Soft Matte Lipstick
Available in two rouge hues, Lancome has released a soft blurred matte lipstick in collaboration with the collectable Japanese toy, Bearbrick. Encased in premium rose gold packaging made in France, the lightweight formula glides easily onto the lips, leaving a blurred matte look that’s buildable for those preferring a more opaque finish.

FENTY SKIN Plush Puddin’ Intensive Recovery Lip Mask
Made for those struggling with chapped lips, this new Fenty Skin recovery lip mask coats lips with a pudding-like texture, sealing in moisture throughout the night and during the day. The core of the product is pomegranate sterols, a natural and vegan alternative to lanolin that holds 200% of water weight, delivering hydration to the lips. Supporting ingredients like Barbados cherry extract and Vitamin E provides a healthy amount of antioxidants. Sephora
PAT MCGRATH LABS Bridgerton Skintillating Diamond Body Shimmer
Inspired by the Netflix hit series Bridgerton, this loose powder highlighter features light-reflective pigments that can be used on the body and face. The product is also infused with squalene, which allows the shimmers to melt into the skin, giving the user a natural glow. Dab the highlighter onto your skin with the provided body puff or use a brush to bring focus to the high points. Sephora
TARTE Modern Mosaic Palette Wardrobe
Created for the holiday season, this limited-edition eyeshadow palette aids in producing bold eye looks, featuring a combination of matte, metallic and shimmer shades. Its formula is designed to be finger-friendly, with a butter-soft texture that can be blended out without the need for brushes. From soft pink to warm plum, the shades can be mixed and matched to suit a variety of skin tones. Sephora
