Let us be among the first to wish you a happy Lunar New Year: The celebration begins on February 8th, and signals the official start to the Year of the Monkey. And, to mark the occasion, a handful of brands have created beauty goodies especially designed with the New Year in mind. Keep scrolling for some serious packaging envy.

Giorgio Armani Chinese New Year Illuminating Palette


We think the phrase “too pretty to use” was invented for this lust-worthy highlighting palette. Save it as a collectible or—if you can bring yourself to disturb the design—brush the slightly-shimmery powder across the high points of your face. (It's a universally-flattering shade of champagne.)

Yves Saint Laurent The Year of the Monkey Palette


Five party-ready, pink-y hues are stored inside this special-edition shadow palette.

Estée Lauder Year of the Monkey Powder Compact


This translucent powder compact celebrates the Year of the Monkey in the most glamorous way: The monkey pictured holds a Swarovski crystal peach, a Chinese symbol of marriage, spring, and immortality.

MAC Year of the Monkey Collection


MAC Cosmetics looked to the Chinese opera when curating their Year of the Monkey-themed collection. Check out the blush in Modern Mandarin, a red-orange hue that imparts a healthy glow.


Givenchy Prisme Libre Chinese New Year Edition


If you’re a fan of Givenchy’s cult-favorite color-correcting powders, why not stock up while they’re available in this luxe red case?
