1. SPARKLING SCENT

What’s better than My Burberry, a garden-fresh blend of bergamot, quince and centifolia rose? A holiday version with glitter swimming inside and free monogramming!

My Burberry Eau de Parfum Festive Edition, $135 (90 mL), ca.burberry.com

2. HAIR TO THE THRONE

If diamonds are a high-maintenance girl’s best friend, this shampoo is the love of her life. With maracuja oil and cypress extract, it’s worth its weight in diamonds.

Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo, $54, beautymark.ca

3. NAIL ART

This bird-topped bottle is an objet d’art that will beautify your dressing table. The opalescent rose lacquer within will make your manicure just as refined.

Anna Sui Nail Color in S302, $15, murale.ca

4. INCENSE DEN

Toronto facialist Julie Clark is known for her oil blends and exfoliating powders. She’s mastered incense as well, taking it from hippie to spicy orange-scented chic.

Province Apothecary Sweet Orange + Bay Incense, $12, provinceapothecary.com

5. MIRROR, MIRROR

New Zealand designer Karen Walker (whose sunglasses are worn by cool girls everywhere) has teamed up with Sephora to create this equally stylish tortoiseshell compact.

Karen Walker Mirror Compact, $60, Sephora

6. STAR POWDER

Météorites have a cult following among those who worship a candlelit glow. The holiday edition is extra dreamy, with squeal-inducing stars.

Guerlain Météorites Flocons Enchantés, $89, Guerlain

7. EYE LOVE YOU

Beauty-box boss Birchbox has launched its own line, LOC (Love of Colour), in collaboration with beauty vlogger Tati Westbrook. The shadow chubbies are so easy to use that no YouTube tutorial is required.

LOC One And Done Shadow Stick in On Point and Smoke Green, $12 Each, birchbox.ca

8. SOAP STAR

These chunky, stripey glycerin-based soaps are handmade in Portland, Maine, smell divine and are almost too beautiful to use. (I mean, look at them.)

Wary Meyers Cedarwood & Vanilla and Oud Wood Soaps, $16 Each, bodegathirteen.com

9. CREAM FILLING

This so-natural-it’s-edible moisturizer is made fresh to order in Sydney, Australia (which happens to be my hometown), and shipping is surprisingly inexpensive.

Plant Revitalizing Black Tea Face Cream, $35, plantskincare.com
