Narciso Rodriguez 'For Her L'Absolu' Eau de Parfum

La Mer 'The Renewal Oil'

You can always trust La Mer products to be the cream of the crop, so it's no wonder this oil made our list of expert products to be found at Nordstrom. It'll increase your collagen protection to leave your skin looking young and youthful, banishing fine lines and wrinkles. 

Kiehl's Since 1851 Daily Reviving Concentrate

Suffering from a bit of skin fatigue from holiday travel? Fix your woes with this daily concentrate that uses natural oils to deliver a powerful antioxidant punch to your skin. You'll look fresh and ready from morning to night, which is just what you should be aiming for. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

Charlotte Tilbury 'Filmstar Bronze & Glow' Face Sculpt & Highlight

If you don't have killer cheekbones naturally (and let's be honest, not many of us do) you can still play in the big leagues with this pretty palette that gives you the tools to sculpt your cheekbones to a precision point. 

Urban Decay 'Naked Smoky' Palette

Ready to finally master the smoky eye? You are if you get your hands on this accomplished palette that comes with twelve shades, all of which will help you achieve your goals. Mattes, satins and sparkles all work together to give you the perfect evening look. 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit

Firstly, this pretty palette is seriously discounted, so that's an immediate plus. Secondly, you'll get the best light refracting technology on the market with this palette, which will give you a flawless complexion that will catch all the best light naturally.

Christian Louboutin Nail & Lip Colour

Nail polish or wearable art? We think both! We love the pointy packaging on these Christian Louboutin polishes and lipsticks, so it makes sense that they're our number one pick. Plus, the red and black packaging says “I mean business” when it comes to the holidays.
