Beauty Gifts for Your Sister You'll Want to Keep for Yourself
Details on the date we went on last night. A bite of our chocolate dessert. The friends & family code for a sale at J.Crew. These are all things we’re more than willing to share with ours sisters. As you can see, beauty products didn’t make the list.
If your sister can’t seem to keep her hands off your favorite red lipstick or is notorious for “borrowing” your curling iron and never giving it back, you’ve come to the right place. We pulled together this list of nine of the best beauty gifts to give to your sister this holiday season.
From Pat McGrath lip kits to Instagram-worthy candles, these presents will keep her far away from your own stash.

Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller
Throw in a Starbucks gift card, and you just made your sister a morning person. These buzzy tools help depuff the sensitive areas of the face, thanks to the cooling jade material. They also promote circulation and drainage, and when paired with a facial serum, they can help your skin absorb the product better and faster.
Herbivore Rosewater Hydration Trio
This soothing trio of millennial pink goodness is a must for your sister who stays very on top of Instagram beauty trends. The face mist, exfoliating glow potion, and the pink cloud creme are all powered by antioxidant-rich rosewater and provide a boost of hydration to the skin. They also look damn good in a shelfie pic.
Jinsoon Encore Collection
With this kit, you save your sister from staring endlessly at the wall of nail polish at the salon. Killing two birds with one stone, you also decided her NYE mani and pedi.
Urban Decay Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette
She's probably still mourning the death of the OG Naked Palette, so help her ration by gifting her the newest version, The Naked Cherry. Pink-hued matte and metallics are becoming the new neutrals, so she'll be sure to use this shadow collection every single day.
Pat McGrath Labs BlitzTrance Divine Lipstick Duo
Secure that #BestSisterEver title with a Pat McGrath Labs lip kit. This duo includes a coveted matte and metallic shade from the legendary makeup artist's namesake collection. She'll be tranced by the color payoff.
Byredo La Sélection Bois Mini Candle Trio
Byredo candles are so incredibly chic, and they smell just as good. All three in this set are centered around the warm and addicting notes of sandalwood and cedarwood. Cotton Poplin is the lightest scent. Bohemia Notes is slightly heavier, due to the addition of rum, while Tree House is the most intense scent, with myrrh at its core.
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks
You'd probably give her gold if you could, but if that's a tad out of your price range, Wander Beauty's Rose Gold Eye Masks are your next best bet. These pretty patches reduce the appearance of dark circles, hydrate, and cool on contact. They're the perfect first step in any morning or evening skincare routine.
Tatcha Skincare For Makeup Lovers Obento Box
Meghan Markle is a v. big fan of this skincare brand, so give your sister the Royal treatment with an entire Tatcha kit, including three travel-size products she can bring along with her on the plane after all the holiday festivities are over. It features a full-size Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, as well as travel-sizes of The Water Cream, The Silk Canvas, and the Violet-C Radiance Mask.
Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum
If your sister is looking to make cleaner beauty decisions, this cult-classic botanical serum is a non-negotiable. The glow-boosting formula has received praise from more celebs than we can count, and it's made one InStyle beauty editor totally ditch makeup.
