Cosmetics make great gifts, but it’s not always easy to find the perfect item— especially if the recipient is particularly discerning. That’s where luxury beauty shines. There are certain products that are a cut above the rest, combining lovely textures with gorgeous packaging and real results. Here, we’ve outlined eight picks that are worth splurging on this holiday season.

Housed in a jewel-like compact, Clé de Peau’s opal and argan oil-infused face powder reflects the light brilliantly and gives skin the dreamiest glow. The texture is finely-milled, resulting in a silky and virtually weightless feel.
