I know I say this every month, but December blew me away—literally and figuratively. Because while the weather has been indescribably cold and the wind is at an all-time high (I don’t want to talk about it), the beauty launches have been un-freaking-believable. I’m talking jaw-on-the-floor good. I’ve been introduced to a handful of new, high-quality brands: Barney’s New York launched a body care line that feels just as luxe as you would imagine, and a company called Good Juju revolutionized my laundry routine. Then, there were of course new launches from my long-time loves: Pat McGrath released a Star Wars collab, Sunday Riley is about to drop a game-changing niacinamide serum (I got a sneak peek!), and Drunk Elephant expanded their face mask range. 

I’m not in the market of gatekeeping (sharing is caring!), so I, along with the rest of the Marie Claire team, have decided to profess my love for the skincare, makeup, haircare, fragrance, and holiday bundles that are responsible for getting me through the end of the year. Keep scrolling to shop the best new beauty products to hit shelves in December. (To shop more Marie Claire-approved items, check out our favorites from November, October, and September.)
