Cosmetics and fragrances have traditionally been some of the most coveted products for those on holiday gift lists, and brands do their best to make packages hard to resist. Here’s a glimpse at a few of this season’s standout offerings - see them in the slideshow above.

Lancôme Offers "Paris en Rose"

To highlight Lancôme’s "Paris en Rose collection," Cosfibel Premium conceived a festive calendar, an original creation with 24 boxes of different shapes and sizes designed to hold a separate Lancôme product for each day of the Advent period. This gift set is based on a simple, elegant box filled with numbered cases of different sizes that fit perfectly together. Each local market will be able to choose exactly which Lancôme products it puts inside the boxes. The coffrets are delivered flat with filling instructions. It’s sure to make any recipient eager to cherish the day and look forward to the next…

YSL Beauté Adds Fun to Glamour

YSL Beauté’s covetable, shimmering, couture Multi-Use Palette Collection “Sparkle Clash Edition” is filled with holiday season colors, and shows that the juxtaposition of gold and silver can result in an unusual but stunning effect. Eye-catching from the outside, inside the palette holds an enviable collection of shades and textures, from a highlighter with pink and gold undertones; four new eye shadows in shades of plum, gold, bronze, and a metallic rose, and two lip colors, a nude, and a dramatic red. Complete with applicators, it is destined to be the palette for women on the go, both indulgent and practical.

YSL Beaute's Limited Edition 'Star Clash' Lip Color is also shown in the slideshow (above). Inside, an iconic lip color is transformed into a special one-time only gift, thanks to a unique star embedded into the waxy bullet.

The Estee Lauder Holiday Collection 2016
New Pressed Powder Compacts, Solid Perfumes & Lipstick Charm Bracelet

Every year, I look forward to Estée Lauder’s holiday tradition in which the brand reveals a glamorous collection of collectible pressed powder compacts and solid perfumes. The dilemma is always which to choose. Topping my list this year: the seahorses, followed by the elephant and the octopus. Who wouldn’t delight in drawing any one of these fabulous items from their purse or desk drawer? The first compact was created in 1956, and to date, more than 1,700 one-of-a-kind compacts have been created and thousands sold worldwide.

For the first time, Estée Lauder has partnered with renowned jewelry designer and photographer Monica Rich Kosann to design these elegant holiday compacts, wearable solid perfume necklaces and lipstick bracelets.

New this year, The Estée Lauder Holiday Collection will include lipstick-filled charm bracelets. The two animal inspired pieces feature an owl and frog, each housing Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Crystal Lipstick.
