With a surprising amount of new launches every year and veteran scent stars like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, celebrity fragrances are in a category of their own. This year, we've seen One Direction expand its stardom with Our Moment, which made for a hilarious ad, and Justin Bieber released a new scent, The Key, with an equally interesting short film. This year marks Britney Spears's 10-year milestone in the fragrance industry, and she didn't miss out on the opportunity to launch Island Fantasy and her song "Perfume." But that's just the tip of the iceberg in all the celebrity fragrance launches this year. We're narrowing it down to the top 10, but who gets your vote for the best perfume launch of the year?
You've probably seen Deborah Lippmann's handiwork in the likes of Vogue or on the runways at New York Fashion Week, but she's most well-known for her line of polishes that you can find at many department stores and Sephora. We tapped the celebrity manicurist for her holiday shopping list, and just like her polishes — you'll find nothing but luxury here. From cozy cashmere blankets to a special spa treatment, see what Deborah is gifting this season.

If there's one thing that Nicki Minaj is known for (aside from her catchy music, that is), it's her over-the-top beauty looks. You have to give the girl credit: she continually ups the ante by wearing a variety of makeup palettes and extreme hairstyles. The raptress celebrates her 31st birthday today, and to celebrate, take a look back at some of the best beauty moments of her career. Happy birthday, Nicki!
Celebrities were out this week to remind us that this is the season for red lipstick. Demi Lovato paired her crimson shade with her jewel-toned hair, while Emmy Rossum went glamorous with red lips and a high bun. We couldn't stop staring at Rita Ora's headpiece-and-red-lipstick combination . . . or Leona Lewis's curly mane with her scarlet hue. All four of these ladies were getting us in the holiday spirit with their lipstick colors, but whose look did you like best?
Cheek stains are great any time of the year but especially in the Winter, when your skin tends to be drier. Benefit's Benetint is a cult classic for a reason, and we found a way to make our own version at home with a little coconut oil and an old lipstick.

Kate Middleton tops our social feeds again this week with some hair dramatics. First, she fired her hairdresser (gasp!). Then, she was spotted with a new brunette dye job, and she finished out the week with a huge hair first — a red carpet ponytail. Plus, it's the holidays! So our networks were bubbling over with all things festive. Secret Santa gifts, snowflake nail art, and seasonal styles were winners across the board. See all your favorite beauty news from the week that was, and make sure to follow POPSUGAR Beauty on social media, including Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+.
Last night's KIIS FM Jingle Ball 2013 brought some of the biggest names in music to LA's Staples Center, and Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and Ariana Grande all took to the stage to perform. Decked out in festive attire, the songstresses brought out some equally eye-catching holiday beauty looks, too. Selena opted for a surprisingly gothic look, donning the same blunt wig she wore for another holiday concert in Texas. Her makeup consisted of bold black lipstick, which was only enhanced by a black, smoky eye. Miley performed in a sparkling Chanel outfit, which she complemented with her signature red lips and bold brow combo. Ariana had the sweetest look of all with her long hair flowing in soft waves and a neutral makeup palette that featured soft pink lips. They all brought their beauty A-game, but whose look did you like best?
One of the bigger headaches of the holiday season is wrapping all those presents. But what if there were products so pretty, all you had to do was buy them and pop them under your tree? Well, we've rounded up 10 products with packaging so elegant, we're giving our wrapping paper a holiday this year. You'll just need to add a tag and a bow!
Pantone has announced its color for 2014, and the winner is Radiant Orchid. We think this is a fabulous choice for a bevy of reasons. We've already seen this hue in its multiple shades on the Spring 2014 runways of Costello Tagliapietra, Naeem Khan, and PPQ (above).
But aside from that, a bunch of celebrities have also been spotted sporting this look. AnnaSophia Robb (above, left) swept the shade across her lids, while color enthusiast Lupita Nyong'o (above, right) wore the exact shade on her lips. The best part, though? We definitely already own it . . . in multiples! The color is superwearable, be it on your nails, on your eyes, or across your lips, and looks good on a lot of different skin tones. But just in case you aren't already stocked, we've got you covered. Shop your new favorite products below!
The temperature may be dropping, but don't let that stop you from savoring the season. This week on Instagram, celebrities went bold and bright to fight off the looming cold; see which snaps were our favorites!
