Chinese New Year officially kicked off Tuesday February 5 welcoming in the Year of the Pig.
In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbols of wealth so 2019 is set to be a cracker when it comes to all things coin.
Of course, you can further boost your chances of reaping in the cash by wearing red or gold, both of which are said to attract good fortune.
A killer red lipstick is always a good option - no matter what the year! But if that's not your thing don't sweat it - trust us, there are plenty of other Chinese New Year themed beauty buys available right now.
This formula combines the power of a serum, the richness of an oil and the freshness of a lotion. And even better, it works!
Immediately after using it your skin legit appears more smooth, plumped and fresh. That's got to bring good fortune right?
Then there's this sweet little number. Yes, it's the LANCÔME Miracle Cushion Case CNY, $24.50.
Swap your regular compact case for this adorable (and prosperity-attracting don't forget!) red cushion case and celebrate the year of the dog in style.
Just imagine how impressed the folk on the train will be when you whip this baby out! Aint nobody going to curl their lip and announce you ought to be doing that at home if you've got this sexy compact in your hot little hand.
If you want to be successful you have to smell successful right?
Look, I don't know if that's true but give me any excuse to buy this beautiful limited edition version of Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina EDP (50ml), $121.
This sweet red glass bottle was specifically produced to mark Chinese New Year (hence the beautifully-coloured flacon - that's beauty editor speak for perfume bottle, just saying) and will likely sell out quickly so hurry lovers, hurry!
As per above, a red lipstick is ALWAYS a winner. Always. Do I need to write that again? Probably not but hey - it's true and that goes for the Year of the Pig and ALL of the others frankly.
Bobbi Brown's brand new release Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip in Big Apple, $40, is heaven if you're after a new lip hue.
Formulated with a superfruit blend of cranberry, blueberry and raspberry extracts, it's a full-coverage lipstick that glide on effortlessly while also moisturising the lips. #Winning
It's also Paraben, Phthalate, Sulphite, Talc, Mineral Oil and Gluten free. And Vegan. Which pigs worldwide will love!
Nothing says love and happiness like a beautiful rosy flush to the cheeks right?
Maybe you're in love and over the moon and rocking that flush naturally, but if not, this product is definitely for you.
Of course I am talking about M.A.C Cosmetics Lunar New Year Powder Duo Blush, $68. This luxurious compact features a striking red case inspired by the art of Chinese paper cutting, with a delicate motif decoration. Sweet right?
Equally as important it contains two much-loved blush shades, Lovecloud, a satin muted pink, and Melba, a matte peachy coral. The finely-milled powder glides and blends onto the skin easily, giving incredible colour payoff with one simple swirl. Swoon.
