Since Rihanna made her debut “RiRi Hearts MAC” makeup collection this spring, RiRi has received great reception for her makeup line. The 25-year-old singer, who signed a year-long collaboration with MAC, is slated to sell out another exciting holiday collection. It will have three matte lipsticks, two eyeshadow palettes, a RiRi Woo nail polish, bronzing powder and eyeliner. A makeup bag that’s perfect for gifting will also be available for purchase. The collection will be available Dec. 5 and we’re so ready for RiRi madness: part deux. Another noteworthy MAC holiday collection, Divine Night, is brimmed with perfect, luxurious, pigmented shades, from velvety gold to plum and burgundy.

The vibrant colors are mostly frosty finishes, wearable on a day-to-day basis. Expect many seasonal colors, like taupes, champagnes, olives and golds. The mineralize brushes come with three, warm-toned colors with satiny finishes and gold-packaged lipsticks with a range of frosty pink to magenta red.

The “must-haves” of the collection are the fun nail lacquers of Fierce Entrance, a rich gold-bronze, Military, a black matte with silver suede pearl and Gadabout Girl, a blackened plum.

Nothing is more festive and meaningful than giving a gift set from e.l.f. cosmetic. Known for their super affordable dollar makeup and beauty tools, their holiday collection is full of perfect and budget-friendly sets like 14-piece nail polishes, lip trios, 150-piece eyeshadows and beauty kits—all for $20 and under.

All we really want for Christmas is Mariah Carey’s OPI Liquid Sand holiday nail collection; the Pop-R&B diva has collaborated with OPI for another holiday collection of shades that reflect her fierce personality—with glam and overwhelmed with  sparkles and dazzles. Named after some of Carey’s hits her 25-year music career, this collection is especially a must for anyone who loves getting glitter-bombed on their nails—textured, matte glitter shades that bring out your inner-vivaciousness.
