Much like we celebrate the New Year here in the U.S., the Lunar New Year is a cause for major celebration across Asia. And though I'm personally suffering from serious FOMO because I can't join in on the celebratory festivities overseas, there's still a way for me to enjoy in my own way at home. And since I'm the biggest beauty junkie I know, I'm pumped that the Year of the Pig comes with a slew of new Lunar New Year beauty products that are sure to bring old-world charm to all our vanities.
If the ancient Chinese tradition isn't rooted in your heritage, there are still ways to honor Chinese culture and infuse your year (and your beauty routine) with good fortune. Whether you fancy yourself a skincare enthusiast, a makeup addict, or a hair-care aficionado, you can still find a way to shop the prettiest limited-edition Chinese New Year beauty products that get you in the mood to celebrate the Year of the Pig. From adorable pig-inspired packaging to luxe red- and gold-colored products, these are all the beauty buys you need to ring in the new year, lunar style. They're almost — almost — too cute to use.
Gravitymud Firming Treatment
I'm obsessed with GlamGlow's Gravitymud because it provides an instant face lift (as much as possible), and peels off in one fell swoop. Glam Glow's take on the Lunar New Year version is just as satisfying, but boasts pretty limited-edition packaging.
Sunday Riley Lunar New Year Skincare Kit
There's nothing luckier than scoring all the greats from skincare favorite Sunday Riley, amirite?
The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
This blow-dryer will cost you a pretty penny, so if the original pink color wasn't your style, opt for the new fiery red option. After all, you work hard for that money, so why not invest in something that dries your hair faster and aesthetically suits you?
