• I'm all about going glam for the holidays (or any time of year, really). So when I was browsing my favorite brands' seasonal additions, I drooled over the amount of shimmer and sex appeal I saw in each collection. From extreme cleansers and sultry eye palettes, to luxe brush sets and Japanese eyelashes, there is something on my list for everyone.

  • These faux lashes are inspired by the ancient Chinese art of paper cutting, and bring a whole new haute element to any makeup regimen. If you've got the guts, rock a full set (or individual tips) of wild butterflies, sea coral, and peacock feathers. ($10-15, PAPERSELF)

  • We've all heard about the horrors of chemical straightening, but who can really replicate a salon blowout in their bathroom? Now you can, thanks to T3 and Living Proof's blowout kit. The set includes two styling products, a detangling comb, the perfect barrel brush, and a Tourmaline blow dryer. ($200, Sephora)

  • Winter weather can wreak havoc on your lips, and the last thing anyone wants is to get caught under the mistletoe with a cracked kisser. Fresh has stuffed their famous pout-perfecting products into one stocking for only $22.50! Scrub away chapped skin with the sugar lip polish, and slather on the protective SPF 15 treatment. ($22.50, Sephora)

  • Hello Kitty has traded in her pink bow for a glam Gaga-esque version, and ditched summer's white duds for moody midnight matte. Even better than the chic noir packaging: This comprehensive 5-piece brush set has everything you need to dust on bronzer before work or craft a sexy nighttime gaze. ($55, Sephora)

  • When MAC's sultry snow globe palette landed on my desk, I sat in awe of the gorgeous, glittery case for minutes before being further dazzled by the six high impact shadows inside. Combine the lustrous mauves, taupes, and icy white to create a look as beautiful as this compact. ($38, MAC Cosmetics)

  • I love voluminous, tousled waves, but high-tech irons and innovative curling tools can be intimidating. This miniature version is the perfect size for creating waves that Blake Lively would die for, and is featherweight for holiday travel. ($14.97, Remington Products)

  • Silver polishes can fall short of stylish, sometimes bordering on trashy or cheap. Leave it to NARS to create a foil effect so posh that one manicure is all you need to be a silver belle this holiday. The aluminum sheen is ultra high-fashion, while subdued shimmer keeps you looking more Hollywood royalty and less Hollywood Boulevard. ($17, NARS Cosmetics)

  • Mere minutes into any family gathering (around the time my dad tells me to take it easy on the potatoes and my mother asks when I'll finally bring a guy around) and I have pimples lurking below skin's surface, waiting for the most inopportune moment to show the effects of stress on my complexion. Thankfully, Clarisonic has turned their revolutionary skin cleansing system into a travel-sized companion. The vibrating brush even comes with a small tube of hydrating cleanser. ($129, Sephora)

  • These jewel-toned shadows are made from Amazonian clay, and glide on as luxuriously as they sound. The four-pack comes with a special applicator brush that perfectly applies the creamy, waterproof color. ($39.98, QVC)

  • This sparkle-spritzer is one of my latest obsessions. I know what you're thinking: The last time I needed an impeccable glitter dousing I was seven and on my way to a Spice Girls concert. But this light mist of shimmer is barely detectable and adds a gorgeous sheen to holiday hair. ($24, The Body Shop)
