Time to add all these into your Christmas shopping list for yourself and your loved ones.

It's that time of the year again where we rush to the malls to complete our festive shopping list and one of the most important things is the gift list.

And what better to lift our festive spirit than Holiday/Christmas editions of our favourite beauty products – whether it's a gift for your loved ones or just to pamper yourself because you deserve it!

From the glitter and sparks at YSL Beauté to Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros and the mythical beasts of Diptyque, here are our seven favourite holiday beauty collections.

Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros

Time to go back to the pixel era with Shu Uemura this year as the Japanese beauty mogul brings you a special festive partnership with Super Mario Bros.

Featuring a range of makeup including lipsticks to eye palette and eyeliners, the Shu Uemura x Super Mario Bros will get you Princess Peach-ready with its myriad shades of pinks.

Diptyque Constellations

And what's more magical than a majestic beast like the Unicorn and this year, Diptyque brings three unique mythical creatures to life for its candle collection.

Named the Diptyque "Constellations", there's also the Dragon and the Phoenix featured within.

Our favourite is definitely the Unicorn inspired candles, which is named "Frosted Forest", that will transport you into a winter forest wonderland with its nuances of pine needles, Hinoki wood and mint nestle.

NARS x Man Ray

One to break boundaries at every turn, Nars Cosmetics upped its festive game this year with another iconic collaboration with photographer Man Ray.
