From an eco-friendly Lunar New Year Dior lipstick to a tiger-themed golden bath bomb from LUSH, these five beauty products celebrate the new year in style.
As we bring in the Year of the Tiger this Lunar New Year, brands around the globe are taking part in creating and developing signature products and packaging in honour of the revered tiger. Most sport traditional lucky colours of red and gold, while some brands have opted for flowers and peach blossoms to symbolise good luck, fortune and joy. From lipstick to facial essence, here are five beauty products that will make for a great Lunar New Year gift.
NARS LNY EYESHADOW
This four-piece eyeshadow palette was inspired by award-winning NARS blush shade Taj Mahal. The set is dressed up in limited edition red and gold packaging, designed to celebrate Lunar New Year. The four shades include two multi-dimensional neutrals as well as an intense purple-red matte and a dark golden-orange shade. The four shades can be used to create varying looks, ranging from neutral everyday eyes to an intense dark look.

The lipstick is infused with natural extracts of red peony and pomegranate flower, and the signature crimson red, velvet finish was inspired by the first ever two lipsticks launched by Christian Dior, the 9 and the 99.
