December 2021’s Best Beauty Launches

The buzzy holiday beauty drops are basically over, but that doesn’t mean the eye-catching and game-changing launches have stopped altogether. From a reformulated liquid highlighter to a body cream infused with retinol, December’s new beauty launches will make you consider switching up your entire routine, or, at the very least, introducing a few new products into the rotation. (New Year, new you, right?) Below, we’re sharing the new December 2021 launches that’ll help you kick off 2022 feeling your best.

Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter

Fenty Beauty’s cult-favorite powder highlighter now comes in liquid form. The highly-pigmented formula comes in five shades and lasts long enough to take you into the night. The thin, dewy finish isn’t sticky either; it melts into your skin and only leaves behind a luxurious glow.

Fenty Beauty

Firm Ground Retinol Body Lotion

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill body lotion—with retinol, squalane, and cocoa butter in the mix, it smooths out rough patches and evens out skin tone while also firming, plumping, and hydrating.


Moisture Lock Glossy Balm

Consider this an elevated version of the balm that’s sitting at the bottom of your bag right now. The slim pot deposits a dose of moisturizing butters and oils onto your lips to give you a mirror-like finish.

True Botanicals

Hard to Resist Nail Strengthener

Infused with biotin, this clear nail polish works to strengthen and reinforce weak, brittle nails. Plus, the subtle purple-tinted shade works to neutralize the yellow tones in your nails, brightening any dull spots.


Botanical A Bio-retinol Night Serum

This lightweight serum features a plant-derived retinol alternative, a blend of acids, and purple to smooth and repair the complexion, boost cell turnover, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

One Love Organics

Hydralust Lipgloss

With a range of pigmented shades that include juicy berries to bold nudes, this lip gloss doesn’t just up the shine factor on your lips; olus oil, sunflower seed oil, and grapeseed oil bolster each swipe with hydration usually reserved for balms.

Dome Beauty

Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream

Glow Recipe’s latest moisturizer is chock-full of everything a compromised skin barrier needs to feel comfortable: hyaluronic acid, peptides, and plum. Together the trio works to plump and hydrate the skin before locking in moisture to keep dryness at bay.

Glow Recipe

Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara

Designed to grip even the shortest of lashes, the arched brush provides long-lasting and buildable coverage while lifting, separating, and curling every single lash, no clumps included.

Maybelline New York

The Potion Soothing Oil

Inside this luxe packaging, you’ll find a silky-smooth formula filled with quick-absorbing plant oils to calm inflammation and soften the skin. The mix also includes lavender oil, which helps to slow down a restless mind, reminding you to take a moment to relax.
