New Makeup Releases, Hair Products, & Skin Care: December 2022 – Bustle

The Drop
The countdown to 2023 begins.
You’ve made it to the end of 2022, a year full of exciting beauty launches and many (arguably, maybe too many) celebrity collaborations. With December 2022 here, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be slowing down because of the holidays. In fact, it’s beginning to look a lot like the beauty industry will be ending the year with a bang.
In just the first days alone, beauty fans were surprised with fun collaborations, such as an Avatarinspired makeup set by NYX and stunning jeweled-toned Essie polishes thanks to a partnership with Suite by Jennifer. Skin care-wise, the obvious complexion concern everyone wanted to talk about is dryness. Kiehl’s and Fenty have got you covered in that department with nourishing products to keep dryness at bay. On the celebrity front, everyone’s faves like Ariana Grande and Harry Styles also gifted fans with new fragrance and nail polish releases.
These are all just a few highlights from the beginning of the month. Get hyped and read on to find out about new skin care, hair, and makeup releases you should keep on your radar.
Nick Stenson, Ulta Beauty’s senior vice president of store and services operations and celebrity stylist, launched an eponymous hair care brand. The collection contains 12 products, all featuring nourishing ingredients such as aloe vera, vitamins A, C, and E, jojoba oil, and plant-based collagen to hydrate and strengthen strands.
With its newest collection, the Super Magic Family Time, Pleasing went bold and colorful. You get four new polishes — Syrupberry, Pea in the Punch, Pinechrome, and Bottoms Up — in bright, rainbow-inspired colors.
Ariana Grande knows how to do a fragrance. To add to her fragrance line, the r.e.m. Beauty founder launched MOD: her first-ever fragrance duo. Fans can enjoy two fragrances — MOD Vanilla and MOD Blush — in cool futuristic designs.
If you’ve been wanting to try out some of Maybelline’s latest launches at your local drugstore, you’re in luck. It just launched some of its newest makeup, such as the Super Stay Up to 24HR Hybrid Power Foundation and Lash Sensation Sky High Tinted Primer, at mass retailers.
L’Oréal Paris’ newest hair drop, the Elvive Hyaluron Plump collection, uses hyaluronic acid to keep hair hydrated, shiny, soft, and voluminous. For December, the beauty brand released all the goodies to mass retailers so you have more options on where you can stock up on it.
Essie collabed with Suite by Jennifer for a limited-edition collection of luxe shades that are perfect for the holiday party season. You’ll find six deep jewel-toned nail polish shades, from a shimmery metallic jade green to a deep oxblood red.
The Outset debuted the answer to all your dry skin prayers. The new Ultralight Moisture-Boosting Oil includes 14 botanical oils and super hydrating squalane to soothe skin, boost moisture, and keep your complexion looking radiant.
NYX celebrated the highly-anticipated (seriously, everyone had to wait 13 years for this) sequel to the fantastical Avatar with a truly out-of-this-world collection. You’ll find lipsticks, lip glosses, and shadows in intense shades and pretty glitter shimmers. Also keep an eye out for fun interactive social media challenges that will support The Nature Conservancy, which helps protect endangered species.
Chapped lips are the bane of winter skin’s existence, but Fenty just solved that pesky problem. Filled with coconut and castor oil, vitamin E, and Barbados cherry extract, Fenty’s newest lip mask replenishes moisture and locks it in.
Benefit kicked off its EmpowHERment Post, a fun initiative that lets you send free holiday cards filled with fun stickers to your loved ones who empower you. For each card sent, Benefit will donate $5 to Planned Parenthood.
The new Kiehl’s Ulta-Barrier Facial Cream provides instant relief from itchiness and dryness. It’s made with colloidal oatmeal and reparative humectant beta-glucan to boost moisture, reduce the appearance of redness, and strengthen the skin barrier. It’s perfect for eczema, post-procedure wounds, wind burns, and sensitive skin.
A fragrance having a lasting impact for 30 years is a true feat, but it’s no surprise with Issey Miyake’s classic scent: L’eau D’Issey. Made with notes of lotus, freesia, and musk, the fresh scent is reminiscent of the smell of water on skin. To celebrate its 30th birthday, the brand collaborated with artists Elisa Valenzuela and Luiz Zerbini to create pieces to pay tribute to the iconic perfume.
Forma Pilates, the celebrity go-to pilates studio (who frequently trains the likes of Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, and Ariana Grande), has created a capsule collection of skin care with Mimi Luzon. The connection? Their Skincore products are positioned as “pilates for the skin.” Though no date is set yet, it’s sure to drop any day.
Clinique dropped a new version of its classic Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. It’s made with Kishu Bincho-tan, a Japanese charcoal that draws out impurities and unclogs pores. It also has nourishing safflower seed oil and vitamin E.
Now you grab your hair care and styling essentials all in one place. Oribe launched its newest collection of brushes and combs, each made with exquisite marble-like designs and you’ll find something for every hair texture and need.
Simihaze launched the perfect accessory for all your party makeup looks this season (and really, beyond). In this new pack, you get three sets of crystal-like adornments to place around your eyes for a gorgeous shimmery effect.
Lele Sadoughi brought the sparkle to everyone’s nails. The accessories brand launched bejeweled nail stickers inspired by its fall and holiday collections.
