For the gal who has all or craves a bit of glitz in her holiday stocking, the perfect gift is just a few clicks away. Whether your giftee enjoys cosmetics or skincare, taking a peek at this season's most coveted clean beauty launches will offer an array of stunning gift options. From luxurious skincare to must-have cosmetics, here's a few of the best clean beauty items to gift this holiday season.

What better gift to give than one of this year's most buzzed about eyeshadow palettes?
In collaboration with Silvija Gorcha, an ultra-talented tattoo artist and illustrator, Folly Fire launched this stunning palette of versatile, highly pigmented pastels and dazzling shimmered shadows that are truly next level.These wildly fun and universally-flattering collection of  colors are welcomed change from the standard holiday color palette we're all so used to seeing and using. A  fast best-seller by the bold clean beauty brand, now is the time to get your hands on this whimsical palette before it sells out once again.

Temptu, the authority in professional airbrush makeup, recently launched a lush, oil-infused mascara that offers a long-lasting wear without the dreaded fallout, clumping and lash-damaging effects. A true winner for sensitive-eyes and gentle lashes, this high-performance clean alternative will make you reconsider your favorite mascara. The vitamin-rich (B5) and nourishing (Agran Oil, Avocado Oil) formulation of Built to Lash offers a highly pigmented coat of rich black color which helps lashes look more voluminous and long (a major factor for me!). A favorite in both my makeup and gym bags, gift the look for full. fluttery lashes with this wondrous product.

Merging the gift of glam and philanthropy is Jane Iredale's mission this holiday season. Launching a limited-edition collection of luxe and radiant cosmetics aimed to give back, Jane's philosophy of caring and giving through beauty makes for a wonderful gift option during this gifting season. For this special range, she's partnered with HoneyLove Urban Bee Keepers, an exceptional organization deeply rooted in protecting endangered honeybees by inspiring new urban beekeepers while educating communities on the value and impact of bees in our ecosystem.

My favorite piece from the holiday collection is the ultra-luxe Queen Bee PurePressed Blush, which offers a soft, radiant flush of delicate fuchsia pink along the cheeks. A perfect pop of color to sport all winter, they won't want to leave the house without a quick dusting of  this best-selling, antioxidant-rich blush. 

During this year's Indie Beauty Expo (IBE), I had the pleasure of meeting with Jen Wojtaszek, the inspiring founder of Spoil Me Beautiful and discovered the power of her luxurious natural, vegan lip products. These beautifully formulated, hydrating lip colors are the ideal stocking suffers as the lightweight, smooth formula delivers a lovely wash of pearlescent color without the sticky, tackiness of a traditional gloss. All housed in a chic tube, you'll be eager to pull this lippie out of your makeup bag time and time again and can adjust the intensity of color with just a few swipes on the lips. Best of all, "Wild Heart," the luscious deep red hued lip color was recently nominated by IBE for best lip color in this year's show. Grab yourself this recognized lip color or opt for "Fling," the flattering bright pink shade with a dazzling gold iridescence blended throughout.

These unique lip products are gifts that give beyond beauty as a  portion of all Spoil Me Beautiful profits are generously donated to non-profit organizations and initiatives working towards rehabilitating animals that have been victims of cruelty.

HO HO HO, check out this chic polish set! A chic red manicure always looks so luxe and just so happens to be the classic color for this festive season. Côte's rounded up its best reds into a chic and gift-friendly set which makes this my top fool-proof  gift pick. The set, aptly named Santa Baby, includes a gradient range of vibrant reds to please every holiday mood. Most importantly, the brand is committed to maintaining a clean and safe  (toxin and allergen free) approach to nail varnish without sacrificing quality.

From luxe facial tools to elegant blends of beneficial skincare, Herbivore Botanicals has launched a number of effective products to tackle our greatest skin woes. Just in time for the holiday season, the brand has launched a super luxurious kit to reach maximum relaxation and a youthful glow through a lavish skin care treatment. The Amethyst Ritual Kit includes the radiance-boosting Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum, a potent hydrating and anti-aging product that is further blended into the skin with a pair of skin enhancing facial tools. To amplify the soothing effects on the skin, the tools are crafted in calming amethyst stone. An ideal gift for your favorite beauty enthusiast, this extravagant spa-like skin balancing set will be a memorable gift they won't be able to live without.
