These festive holiday beauty kits make the gift of giving a breeze.

Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Vivid Collection of 20 Eye Colors

Bare Escentuals has built a thriving community of brand aficionados who collect its eye shadows. They’ll swoon over the complete collection here, including two new shades, Maraschino, a matte raspberry, and Cha-cha, a shimmery strawberry hue. ($89; select Macy’s, Nordstrom, Ulta)

Too Faced Pixie Perfect

Find a full face of makeup within this limited edition pixie-bedecked cosmetics bag. The brand’s Shadow Insurance shadow primer, Lash Injection mascara and a set-exclusive eye quad make for a festive smoky eye, while a brightening bronzer and Glamour Gloss in Plush finish off a holiday look. ($45; Sephora, Ulta)

Fresh Cranberry Oval Soap Trio

These triple-milled artisanal soaps are scented with notes of Chardonnay, aged Pinot Noir and rich bourbon, paired with cranberry, pear and black cherry. Hand-wrapped in seasonal paper and topped with a precious stone, each is infused with hydrating shea butter. ($45; Neiman Marcus)

Nars Bento Box

François Nars’ fascination with Kabuki makeup inspired this limited edition set of two porcelain pots, each lined with a pink or red hand-poured lipstick formula that was 10 years in the making. ($125; Saks)

Tokidoki Limited Edition Robbery Palette

Italian artist Simone Legno’s cheeky illustrations decorate the packaging of this colorful kit, comprised of three detachable eye shadow palettes: one with sun-kissed golden shades, one with brights and one with smoky dark shades. ($49; Sephora)

Bumble and bumble Live Richly Box

Within the festive box is a full-size Gentle Shampoo and Super Rich Conditioner, as well as a heat-protecting Styling Lotion. Extra bonus? A soft-touch comb for perfecting holiday updos. ($52; Bumble and bumble)
