“My favorite thing on my Christmas list is the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette. It is a palette of 4 highlighters, and I have been really needing some new makeup products.

Dior is my favorite makeup brand, and their products are always of such high quality, that I know I will enjoy this palette, and it will last me a long time” said Radovic (’26).

“The Tarte Tubing mascara is on my list this year because I’ve been using the same type of mascara for a while and it’s really hard to get off. I want to get a tubing mascara because it comes off really easily and it won’t kill my lashes. I like the Tarte mascara because it’s supposed to be lengthening, and it’s cruelty-free and vegan” said Payne (’24).
