Festive favours: Mary Kay 2020 holiday collection

Crazy to think that it’s already holiday beauty time.

Anyone else feel like after March this year just flew by?  I can’t believe that I’ve already started to receive holiday PR boxes, and truthfully, I’m not upset about it. The first one to come in was from Mary Kay Cosmetics who always comes out with fabulous gift sets for all ages.

I know it may be a little early to start thinking about holiday gifts (I know, let’s us get through Thanksgiving and Halloween first), but these products do release on October 3, 2020 (tomorrow!) and I’m sure a lot of them will sell out early, so here’s your first chance to see what they have in store.

Mary Kay 2020 holiday Mary Kay Hand Cream and Lip Balm Set

Mary Kay Hand Cream and Lip Balm Set

First up is one of my favourite sets from the bunch, the limited-edition Hand Cream and Lip Balm Set (C$21) comes in three different scents and includes a purse-friendly hand cream and a lip balm.  These sets come in a festive box and are available in Coconut Mousse, Berry Parfait, and Citrus Sorbet.

This set is one of those items that seems like such a basic gift but one that your receiver will for sure use since who doesn’t need hand cream and lip balm?

Available exclusively in Canada, The Iconic Lip Balm (C$60) is a collection of three lipsticks that are everyday classic shades in their Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick. I’ve tried this lipstick before and love how comfortable it is to wear, as well as the colour pay off.

The shades they included are Raspberry Ice, Mauve Moment, and Crushed Berry and all come in a limited-edition tin.

Mary Kay Mini Blending Sponge Set

When it comes to applying face products, it’s a good idea to have some sponges in your collection.  Luckily, Mary Kay has a Mini Blending Sponge Set (C$16), which comes with four mini-size sponges that are perfect for blending in your foundation and concealer.

These are quite small and I wish that they included a regular size one but the mini ones are great to keep in your purse for on-the-go touchups, as well as blending in your concealer.

Speaking of makeup applicators, Mary Kay also has a brush set in their holiday collection.

The Mini Essential Brush Set (C$18) is a collection of three brushes which comes in a cute pouch. You get an Eye Detail Brush, an Eye Shadow Brush, and an Eye Blender Brush, which is exclusively found in this set.

Mary Kay Mad About Masking Mask Pod Gift Set

You can never really have too many masks and a gift set full of them is always a good idea.

Mary Kay Cosmetics released a similar Mad About Masking Mask Pod Gift Set (C$30) last year and it was a total hit with my friends.  This set comes with four different masks that are targeted towards different skincare concerns. There is Miss Pore-fect, a clay mask that is designed to minimize pores and mattify skin; Energy Queen, a mud mask with caffeine that will wake up the skin; Lady Serenity, a cooling and soothing cream mask; and Dewy Gal, a moisturizing gel mask that will leave you with a dewy glow.

Fragrance-Free Satin Hands Shea Hand Soap and Men's Hair and Body Gift set

Fragrance-Free Satin Hands Shea Hand Soap

Let’s be real here, this one item may be the one that will be the most used out of the bunch.

Mary Kay’s Fragrance-Free Satin Hands Shea Hand Soap (C$12) is a great add-on gift that will leave hands clean and soft without stripping them of moisture. It would be great to pair this with one of the hand cream and lip balm sets for the ultimate in self-care.

Men’s Hair & Body Gift Set

Last one is for the man in your life (whether it’s your dad, boyfriend, husband, brother, BFF, you name it!). The Mary Kay Men’s Hair & Body Gift Set (C$29) is a set of Mary Kay Hair & Body Washes available in both the MK High Intensity Ocean and True Original scent.

Ocean is an icy, sensual fragrance, whereas True Original is a clean one.  These two products come housed in a black mesh drawstring bag and will sure be a hit with the man in your life.

Mary Kay 2020 holiday items

All of these items are limited edition for the holidays, so if you see anything that catches your eye I would hop on it quick since once these items are gone they probably won’t be restocked.  The collection is officially on sale as of tomorrow so start planning your lists out now.

Will you be picking anything up from the Mary Kay 2020 holiday collection?
