Not the partying type? Get to work on those wish lists for your preferred stocking stuffers by brushing up on the cutest launch from Drag Race veteran Kim Chi or scoring Teviant's sophisticated new cheek line. 


Happy (Skin) holidays

Happy Skin’s latest collab with brand mainstay Kathryn Bernardo features flattering, Christmas-ready shades and practical packaging for some effortless holiday glam! The lineup boasts of eight brand new, ultra-wearable shades for the eyes, cheeks, and lips including two new My Lips But Better Ultramattes (P399), a practical Easy Eyes Crease-proof Eyeshadow Stick (P399), and Generation Happy Skin’s latest addition, the Pretty Easy Everyday Liquid Eyeshadow (P399). Though the packaging remains consistent with their previous Generation Happy Skin X Kath releases, this particular line comes in toasty, warm shades and show-stopping shimmers that will complement any holiday #FOTD. 

The line will drop on the Happy Skin website this October 15, and be available for purchase in their boutiques and counters by October 18. Get a sneak peek at the products and see how our editor Liz uses them for her #FOTD in this live video!

Kim Chi Chic

After selling NYX to L’Oreal in 2014, NYX founder Toni Ko has taken on a new venture in hopes of building yet another successful company. Bespoke Beauty Brands is Ko’s second foray into the makeup industry - one that the beauty mogul hopes to use as a means to collaborate with talented and committed partners. The brand will make its first splash in the industry through the much-anticipated launch of Kim Chi Chic, the brainchild of its namesake, drag royalty Kim Chi from Ru Paul’s Drag Race. The brand drops this October 16 though it remains to be seen whether international shipping will be available. Kim Chi has already teased fans with a few wishlist-worthy products from the launch line-up, including three High Key Gloss lippies ($8), eight show-stopping Diamond Sharts liquid shadows ($8), and a matching Rainbow Shart eyeshadow palette ($29).
