There’s no crowd more into limited-edition products than makeup lovers so it’s no shock that a lot of beauty brands release a bunch of their bestsellers in special packaging for Chinese New Year — perfect for collectors and beauty addicts.
Here’s a quick list of beauty products you might want to pick up to celebrate the Lunar New Year:
The Clinique limited-edition highlighter is the one to grab here with an ox stamped on the golden product. They also placed a few of their skincare favorites in the limited-edition packaging so that might be more practical if you’re more into skincare than makeup. The Limited-Edition Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is definitely the one to grab if you want to keep the packaging because the ox head lid is adorable.
Fenty Beauty sets are totally worth it, and lucky for us they came out with a perfect pair to celebrate the Chinese New Year! The set from Rihanna’s makeup brand includes the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil in Royal Icing and the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Cheeky.
Givenchy Beauty makes sure that you love what you get but in a beautiful limited-edition red and gold packaging, of course! You can get their iconic loose powder, Pisme Libre, in the best-selling shade 01 Mousseline Pastel. If the power’s a bit too pale for your skin tone, the packaging is also available for their iconic lipstick in shade 316 Orange Absolu.
Make Up For Ever
This is the brand you’re sure to find in every makeup lover’s arsenal. Make Up For Ever released a limited set of their best-selling powder and Kabuki brushes that you can carry around in your purse. They also released the Chinese New Year Celebration Palette 2021 that offers a nice collection of subtle colors that’ll add a subtle sparkle to your everyday look. You can also create a customized palette and place them in the Refillable Case XL 2021 limited design so you can mix and match your own powders and still keep a little makeup memento from 2021.
NARS is releasing a limited-edition floral print packaging and products like the Quad, a lipstick in Warm Nude and Warm Peach Brown, which are only available while stocks last. They even offer a few of their permanent collection like the Light Reflecting Setting Powder and their popular lipsticks in Scarlet Red and Maldo Wine.
MAC is the makeup brand for artists and wild souls, and their Chinese New Year’s Sea of Plenty palette shows just that with its pops of color! They also offer a Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stain Moon Masterpiece in Like Candy and No Interruptions to add a pretty punch of color to your look. A subtler, low maintenance option might be their Powder Kiss Lipsticks in Brickthrough; Luck Be A Lady; Healthy, Wealthy, and Thriving; Turn Up Your Luck; and Playing Koi.
If you’re a highlighter addict, the Extra Dimension Skinfinish Moon Masterpiece with a fish-embossed design is the product of choice. Last but not least in their Chinese New Year line-up for 2021 is the Powder Blush Duo Good Health, Good Wealth, which contains their best-selling shade Melba, as well as Modern Mandarin, in case you want to take a risk that day.
