Welcome to Inside Vanity, a regular letter from our editors created in partnership with Myer to spotlight the latest in beauty, from colour to complexion and everything in between.

Christmas is undoubtedly the most magical time of the year, if not just for the festive beauty drops.

One of the most anticipated this season is Gucci Holiday: a curated collection of both iconic and limited edition Gucci Beauty makeup and fragrance products. Available at Myer, the range includes limited lipstick bullets, a selection of best-selling fragrances and — most excitingly — an incredibly ornate eyeshadow palette.

The accompanying campaign imagery also captures the magic of the holidays through the Gucci lens. The scene is Italian actress and model Benedetta Barzini’s cozy living room, where there’s tinsel, gilded fruit, holiday tipples in glass carafes and a roaring fire. Warm, festive and reminiscent of your grandparent’s place, it truly adds to the Gucci Beauty experience.


So whether you’re shopping for loved ones or perhaps browsing gifts to self, Gucci Holiday at Myer is an excellent place to start. See contributing editor Emily Algar run through the range below, and scroll on to shop the edit.
