Best of Holiday 2020 Makeup Collections

It’s that time of year again… holiday sets, kits, and palettes, oh my!? The very first hints of holiday begin in late August and tend to launch furiously from late September to mid-October.? This year is interesting as more brands have released sets/kits of permanent products with less new-new offerings for the season.? I’m working my way through testing those new-new products as they release, and below, you’ll find a list of the highest-rated products (to the lowest-rated) for the holiday season, which includes individually-sold products as well as makeup palettes and sets.

Keep in mind, this year, I’ve decided not to purchase and re-review products that have, historically, been very consistent–e.g. Giorgio Armani Mini Lip Maestro set.? This is both to minimize waste but also knowing that lip products are not quite as in-demand this season as they have been in the past.

The list below will automatically update as new reviews are published to the blog, so you’ll never miss a review and can easily get an overview of what is (or isn’t) worth your time!
