November’s makeup and nail launches are all about holiday party preparations and making the whole place shimmer. No matter what looks you may already have in mind, the month has brand-new sparkly eye shadow palettes from the likes of Bobbi Brown, Makeup By Mario, and Bossy Cosmetics are sure to be a makeup bag staple the second your calendar starts filling up with festive events. There’s even a Christmas tree-colored eyeliner in a Best of Beauty-winning formula from Kulfi Beauty and a cranberry blush duo from Fashion Fair that just launched that will coordinate with the shadows gorgeously. Perhaps you’ll even want to deck your lashes with a dramatic set of faux mink falsies from i-Envy.
imPress and Dashing Diva are also offering up fun, new ways to easily change out your holiday mani to match whatever your outfit is for the night.
Of course, November’s makeup and nail launches also account for everyday essentials, like a high-shine gloss from Peripera, a cream-to-powder bronzer from UOMA by Sharon C., and conditioning clear brow gel from Live Tinted. You can get a closer look at all these products and many more below. And if you’re curious about what else this month has in store for your next Sephora or Amazon haul, you can peep our lists of the best hair and skin-care launches.
Makeup by Mario Ethereal Eyes Eyeshadow Palette
Typically, Mario Dedivanovic’s eye shadow palettes focus on one and only one finish, but the beloved makeup artist switches things up with the Makeup by Mario Ethereal Eyes Eyeshadow Palette. The 12-shade set brings together what he calls sueded mattes, natural metallics, and glossy shimmer in one place with an equally as gorgeous medley of neutral hues.
Maybelline New York Limited Edition Sky High Mascara
In honor of the upcoming holiday season, Maybelline New York gave its TikTok-favorite, Best of Beauty-winning mascara a festive new look. The Limited Edition Sky High Mascara has a special mirror-like metallic pink tube — rather than a matte one — for the occasion. Honestly, we kind of wish this packaging was always an option.
EcoFabulous Dewy Lip Gloss
Haven’t heard of EcoFabulous before? Well, the brand just debuted with a robust lineup of clean skin-care and makeup products under $45. Our favorite offering at the moment is the Dewy Lip Gloss in its chic aluminum tube. This formula not only coats lips in a high-shine layer of mauve, coral, berry, nude, or pink but also deeply hydrating ingredients, like squalane and jojoba oil, to keep lips nourished and luscious as temperatures start dropping.
Live Tinted Huebrow Clear Setting Gel
Live Tinted is known for its multi-use makeup, like the Best of Beauty-winning Huestick, and its first-ever brow product is no different. The Huebrow Clear Setting Gel helps tame, define, and shape arches while helping plump up each hair. You can even try it out for an instant version of brow lamination. Its applicator has two different sizes of bristles to help slick down each and every hair in seconds.
Fashion Fair Lush Blush Duo
Complementary shades of cream and powder blush team up in one handy compact with the Fashion Fair Lush Blush Duo. We’re loving the Berry Red one. Tap the crimson cream onto your cheeks all on its own for a dewy flush or layer the pearled pink powder on top for a truly high-impact look.
Perpipera Ink Glasting Lip Gloss
Peripera is beloved in both Korea and America for its lip products, and the new Ink Glasting Lip Gloss is yet another makeup bag essential from the K-beauty brand. Its shiniest launch yet gives lips a stunning glassy finish with just one swipe of its oversized doe-foot applicator. It comes in a clear option, but we’re partial to Chilling Rosy for an MLBB moment.
Lumene Invisible Illumination Serum in Concealer
This concealer is spiked with all the goodness of brightening eye cream, like vitamin E and vitamin C-rich Arctic cloudberry, to illuminate skin instantly and over time. Of course, it also packs just the right amount of coverage blur and diminish dark circles.
Olive & June Is it Too Much? Polish
Get a headstart on your holiday mani with this brand-new hue from Olive & June. Is it Too Much? covers nails in glimmering gold flakes that are so fun on their own. You can use it as a festive topper over any other polish color, too.
Uoma by Sharon C. Flawless IRL Bronzer
One of the latest launches from Uoma Beauty’s sister brand is this vevlvety cream bronzer, which comes in one of the deepest shades on the market. As you blend it into skin, it transforms into a longwearing powder, so your bronzy glow won’t budge no matter what the day has in store for you.
Treslúce Beauty Midnight Deseos Eyeshadow Palette
Becky G just dropped a versatile new palette for her beauty brand Treslúce’s holiday collection. We’re particularly drawn to the warm rusty tones and glitzy metallics in Midnight Deseos and can’t wait to create a smoky eye look with it for a holiday party.
Item Beauty Quip Stick
We’ve been pleasantly surprised by Addison Rae’s Item Beauty — so much so that we recently gave the Boost Juice Dual-Ended Lash Primer & Colored Mascara a Best of Beauty Award in the color mascara category. The brand’s newest product is the Quip Stick, which was inspired by Item Beauty’s sold out Lip Quip. Just like the lip oil that came before it, Quip Stick is all about giving lips a dreamy wash of color and moisture that you can easily build up.
Bossy Cosmetics Elegance Meets Strength Combo Palette
Just look at the cobalt shadow in the Bossy Cosmetics Elegrance Meets Strength Combo Palette, and tell us you don’t need it in your life. Imagine it as a winged shadow or part of a bold eye look paired with a dusting of the rich coral blush on the cheeks — divine, right?
Dashing Diva Chocolate Glazed Donut Semi-Cured Gel Manicure
Indulge in the chocolate glazed donut nail trend without making a trip to the salon with Dashing Diva’s new Glazed Donut Semi-Cured Gel Manicure collection. All you have to do is peel, stick, and cure the pre-cut strips under a UV light to make it happen. If chocolate isn’t your favorite flavor, you can also go for the Jelly, Strawberry, Rosewater, Sangria, or Vanilla varieties.
Mediheal Labocare Pantenolips in Healssense Coral
K-beauty brand Mediheal usually focuses on giving your skin the utmost moisture via sheet masks rather than creating color cosmetics, but the Labocare Pantenolips is an exception. This gel formula gives lips the same level of hydration — just with a fun kiss of coral.
Kulfi Beauty Limited-Edition Underlined Kajal Eyeliner in Jungle Gems
Kulfi Beauty is finally expanding the shade range for its Best of Beauty-winning Underlined Kajal Eyeliner with two innovative hues: Jungle Gems (mossy green) and Daydream (baby blue). We’ll be creating flicks of Jungle Gems over a wash of light green shadow for an unexpected monochromatic eye look.
Bobbi Brown Jadestone Eye Shadow Palette
Actually, on second thought, the Bobbi Brown Jadestone Eye Shadow Palette holds just the right greens to pair with Jungle Gems. They’re accompanied by a stunning set of rich browns and shimmering champagnes that align with just about every aesthetic.
Dibs One Liner
Here’s a bit of nostalgia for you: remember the days when every makeup product came in chubby crayon form? Well, the Dibs One Liner is definitely giving us those vibes. This long-lasting pencil effortlessly glids onto lids and lips courtesy of vitamin E. Plus, you can twist it up for more precise looks or smudge it out for some smoky sultriness.
imPress x Tom Bachik Press-On Manicure Limited Edition Collection in You Fancy Huh
Manicurist to stars, like Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez, Tom Bachik teamed up with imPress for a collection of holiday-ready nails. You must check out the You Fancy Huh style with its mid-length almond shape and opalescent French tips. A selection of the press-ons in the kit are even bedazzled with pewter gems, which will surely set apart your French mani from everyone else’s.
MAC x Wakanda Forever Extra Dimension Skinfinish
MAC just Wakanda Forever-ified a ton of its bestsellers, including Lipglass, Liquilast, and Eye Shadow x 8, with special-edition packaging and shades that pay homage to the new Black Panther movie. The one we’re most excited about is the Extra Dimension Skinfinish, which is embossed with the Black Panther logo. It’s also too pretty to use.
i-Envy Mink Impact Lashes in #02
These falsies aren’t for those who like their strip lashes to look like they sprouted them naturally. This style in the new i-Envy Mink Impact Lashes collection is dramatic in all the right ways with ultra-long and fluffy wisps that look fluttery and glam on.
