When it comes to Christmas shopping we enjoy gifting those we love but let’s face it, we’re tempted to purchase items for ourselves as well. As you wrap up your Christmas shopping we wanted to highlight some gifts that are perfect to treat yourself to because you deserve it. From makeup to jewelry to clothing you’re bound to come across an item you want for yourself as you shop and we wanted to highlight some items from Latina-owned brands. From a cozy sweatsuit from Super Casual, the sister company for Jen Zeano Designs, to Lights Lacquer nail polish inspired by one of our fave shows, Friends — these are items we saw and immediately thought “yo quiero!” Read on to discover some of the gifts we think are perfect to enjoy for yourself and to gift loved ones too, of course.
Tierra Cropped Sweatshirt – Super Casual
The tan color and cropped style of this top make it a stylish winter statement piece that’s still cozy. The jefas behind Jen Zeano Designs recently launched Super Casual selling elevated comfort and this piece totally showcases that. You can pair it with their matching Tierra sweat shorts or one of their sweatpants but it also works with a pair of jeans for a cute and casual look.

Holiday Skincare Trio Set – Dezi Skin
This travel size skincare set from Dezi Skin, founded by YouTube star and beauty influencer Desi Perkins, includes an overnight mask, a mist, and a vitamin c serum. All three products are hydrating but our favorite is the Claro Que C serum that includes a unique blend of Mexican fruits including tamarind and plum fruit inspired by her heritage. The collection is also great for sensitive skin since it’s fragrance free and paraben free plus it’s cruelty free and vegan. Skincare is so important to invest in and this is definitely one you’re gonna wanna try for yourself.

Thalia x Rizos Curls VIP BOX – Rizos Curls
We are not shy about our love for Rizos Curls founded by jefa Julissa Prado and now we’re that much more excited about the three new products they’ve launched. The curly hair care brand, which recently launched in Ulta stores, introduced a vitamin c repair mask, a detox scalp scrub, and a hair oil. What’s more exciting than THREE new products that help care for your curls is the limited edition box set they released in collaboration with singer Thalia. The box includes seven of their products including a scalp massage brush, their curl cream, and the refresh and detangle spray that’s super hydrating and also smells great. This has got “treat yo’self” written all over it.

Friends Nail Polish Set – Lights Lacquer
The iconic series Friends was most likely a staple of your youth and now you can literally wear your love for Phoebe, Joey and the rest of the group on your nails. This collab with Lights Lacquer, owned by Cuban-American beauty influencer Kathleen Lights, is both colorful and fun. Each polish is named after one of Kathleen’s favorite episodes and we’re partial to the classic red named “He’s Her Lobster” (if you know, you know). Each time you paint your nails you’ll smile reminiscing about the show and feel good about using these vegan/cruelty-free and toxin-free polishes.

Forever Brillante Metallic Liquid Shadow – Tresluce Beauty
Singer Becky G launched her beauty line, Tresluce Beauty, this year and it’s quickly become a beloved brand especially for its pigmented eyeshadows. Now she’s released eight metallic liquid shadows with the same high pigmentation of her original eyeshadow palette and they’re also smudge and water-proof. The shadows come in tubes and apply as liquid and set as powder so we love the ease of applying them and how they add a little pop to our look. We suggest diamante if you like a more subtle pop that works with different looks but if you prefer a bold look go for aquamarine and you can purchase two at a great price so no need to pick just one.

Selena’s Faves 4 Piece Mini Set – Rare Beauty
When we first heard that pop star Selena Gomez was going to come out with a makeup line we didn’t know what to think but Rare Beauty delivers. This mini set includes lip cream, blush, mascara, and luminizer so it’s perfect to throw in a small makeup bag to carry around in your purse whenever you want to add to your look. We love the complementary colors that still work with day and night looks so go ahead and treat yo’self to this.

Dominican sisters Mabel and Shaira Frias launched Luna Magic with their signature high-pigment eyeshadow palette and it remains a must-have items.

Bonds & Wonders founder Maygelia Peña designs these classic jewelry pieces in her Texas studio inspired by her travels and heritage. The Rocio bracelet is a beautiful timeless piece that’s dainty and perfect for everyday use.

Circle Stud Earrings – Womxn on the Moon
It was love at first sight with these stunning resin studs from Womxn on the Moon, a LGBTQ+ Afro-Latina owned natural stones, beaded designs, and resin jewelry shop. These simple yet dazzling studs feature metal fixtures and stone chips and you get to choose between gold and silver for the metal and a variety of stones. We love the gold metal with rose quartz but you can choose from stones including Tiger’s Eye, Citrine, and amethyst. If you love crystals this is especially great because it’s a stylish way to carry that energy with you all day long.

Las Fiestas Collection X Orly Color Labs – Reina Rebelde
We’ve been long-time fans of Reina Rebelde and so when they came out with their Las Fiestas Collection collab with nail polish brand ORLY Color Labs we knew it would be Christmas gift to ourselves.The collection features 3 full-size nail polishes: Chiflada (emerald green), Tapatía (silver), and Brava (red), liquid liner (chiflada), an eyeshadow palette in tapatía, lip stick (brava), and milagro nail decals to round out the look. While it’s a festive collection, each product is great to use year-round and you already know about our love for red lipstick. This is currently the only nail polish collection available from RR and we love that it’s their signature style with the decals including a flaming heart, skull, cross dagger, butterfly, and rose.
