It comes in two classic shades, Rose Lancome (a creamy pink) and Rouge Vintage (a matte red). Of course, the colors are timelessly chic and wearable, but the real star of the show here is the red and gold packaging (seriously, how cute is that dog?).
Chantecaille Year of the Dog Highlighter, $42
Chantecaille has come out with a special limited-edition Year of the Dog highlighter for Chinese New Year and it's everything: The highlighter itself has a gorgeous iridescent sheen (helped along by pearl particles) and the majestic husky engraved into the powder is the true cherry on top.

It's the same silvery GravityMud you know and love, except it's housed in a gorgeous cherry red jar (plus the box has a dog on it, and that's always a bonus).

Housed in a gorgeous celebratory box, this loose powder comes with four color-correcting pale shades of lavender, pink, green and blue, which all mix together to help create a flawlessly luminous complexion.
