As usual, we’ve spent the entire year testing out the newest mascaras, lipsticks, foundations, and eye shadows before they hit shelves (real and virtual) to let you know about the latest and greatest of the launches. And you might think we’d be over it by December — but you’d be wrong. We live for clueing you into best new makeup launching each month. And for December, that includes moody new nail polish colors, incredible eye shadows, and some reimagined favorites (we’re looking at you, Fenty Beauty).
If you’re like us, your heart rate probably spikes whenever you discover a new makeup category, improved formula on an old classic, or real strides towards sustainability being made. In 2021 alone, we’re seeing product categories like skin tints, cream blushes and bronzers, colorful liners, and brow waxes explode in popularity. It’s enough to make anyone consider an overhaul of their makeup collection to make room for new goodies — or to add a select few to their rotations and jazz up their everyday look.
We’re sharing the new makeup, nail products, and fragrances dropping in December that we recommend adding to your cart. Now’s the time to pick out the products that will help you wind down 2021 and kick off 2022 feeling your most gorgeous, and this is the place to start.
