The impending arrival of the 2021 Lunar New Year is upon us, which means our favourite brands are blessing us with an abundance of limited edition beauty products to help celebrate. This year we’ll welcome the Year of the Ox, which means we’re officially done with 2020’s Year of the Rat. According to the Chinese zodiac, the Year of the Ox will bring about lots of luck and prosperity in work and relationships.
With the Ox in 2021, we’re set to see hard work come to fruition. After the seemingly unending car crash that was 2020, we can only take this as a positive indication that things are on the up and up (fingers, toes and everything else crossed!). If you want to find out what’s in store for your own fortune, look up your birth year and measure it against the Year of the Ox. As a Snake, my Chinese horoscope says I’m set to receive an injection of cash in the early parts of the year – which is perfect timing, as there are a whole host of special release beauty products I’d like to buy right about now. Oh, and Black Star Pastry’s limited edition Lunar New Year macaroons. So maybe all of the above?
So whether you’re looking to snap up something special for the occasion or find that limited edition beauty product for a loved one, here’s GRAZIA‘s edit of the best Lunar New Year beauty products for 2021.
