Kylie has been hinting at the new collection for the fast few days, and fans have been patiently waiting for the big reveal, as Kylie confirmed it was a collaborative Christmas collection.

Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection
Kylie chose to collaborate with The Grinch for her holiday collection because she grew up watching the Grinch, and her daughter makes her watch The Grinch every night before bed, so she thought the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection would be a fun holiday collection.
The Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection PR box is amazing, with a blush pink box tied with an ornate red bow, and bells. The inside is lined with green fur, and inside the box is a ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ book style box which looks so cute.
Inside the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection PR box, there are eleven different products and the presentation is incredible. It’s so well themed with The Grinch.
Kylie isn’t messing with this collection. Some brands that create a collection with a licensed property go for one or two products, but the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is a whole host of products – all of which have amazing packaging.
You see brands stick a couple of stickers on the packaging and label it a collaboration, but every single thing about this collection is extremely well thought out from the shade names, outer box packaging, product packaging and the shades themselves.
The inside of the PR box is divided into two, and there looks to be eleven different products;
- Kylie x The Grinch Matte Liquid Lipstick & Liner Duo
- Kylie x The Grinch Pressed Blush Powder
- Kylie x The Grinch Lipstick Set – set of six lipsticks
- Kylie x The Grinch Kyliner Liquid Eyeliner Pen
- Kylie x The Grinch Pressed Powder Palette – sixteen shades
- Kylie x The Grinch High Gloss Ornaments – two shades
- Kylie x The Grinch Pressed Illuminating Powder
- Kylie x The Grinch Shadow Stick Set – set of four shades
- Kylie x The Grinch Shimmer Eye Glaze – two shades
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Matte Liquid Lipstick & Lip Liner Duo Set
Kicking off the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection with the Kylie x The Grinch Matte Liquid Lipstick & Lip Liner Duo Set which is in the shade How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Inside the duo there’s a matte liquid lipstick, and a lip liner in complementary shades to give you the perfect festive, red lip. The packaging is amazing both on the box, and on the packaging of the lipstick and liner itself.
I really like the formula of the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits, and the liquid lipsticks have great longevity, and the lip liners are super creamy too. I love that the lid of the matte liquid lipstick has illustrations of the Grinch on it, and the lip liner has a silhouette of The Grinch on it too.
I love that Kylie has given special packaging on the products inside the box too. Some collaborations give you really cute boxes, but nobody wants to have to keep the special box packaging. Reds may be seen as being boring for a holiday collection, but what is more festive a gorgeous red lips?
Looking at the swatches, The How The Grinch Stole Christmas Liquid Lipstick and Liner look like it might be a red with a hint of pink.
Either way, both the lip liner and liquid lipstick are extremely pigmented, and they’re a perfect addition to the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection.
Kylie x The Grinch Shimmer Eye Glaze
Next up in the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection are the two shades of the Kylie x The Grinch Shimmer Eye Glazes. Each of the Eye Glazes come in a red cardboard box, and contains 3.5g / 0.12fl.oz of product.
Each of the two Shimmer Eye Glazes are in small, circular glass jars with red plastic lids with Kylie x Grinch written on the lid in green foil writing. I love a good cream eyeshadow, so I’m really excited about both of these eyeshadows, especially after seeing the swatches.
One of the shades is called Stealing Christmas, and the second shade is Lil Grinch. Stealing Christmas is the most amazing bright gold, and Lil Grinch is a straight up emerald green shade.
The Shimmer Eye Glaze pots look like foil eyeshadows, with a super sparkly, multidimensional finish. In the swatches Kylie shared of the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection, they look stunning, and perfect for layering over any eyeshadows for a glitzy topper.
Both shades of the Shimmer Eye Glaze look like they’d apply best with a fingertip rather than an eyeshadow brush, and they’re perfect shades for a Grinch themed holiday collection.
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Lipstick Set
Next up in the super cute Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is the Kylie x The Grinch Lipstick Set which is the cutest box containing six full size 3.5g lipsticks. Each of the lipsticks has a different box design, with different Grinch illustrations, and they look so fun!
I think this Lipstick Set might be my favourite piece in the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection. Not only are the boxes patterned, but the six lipsticks have bright green plastic casing which again is really fun, and unlike anything we’ve seen from Kylie before.
The six lipstick bullets have KYLIE embossed into them, and they have such a great selection of shades. I think this set would be fab for splitting up into multiple gifts for friends / families, especially if you know which shades they prefer, for example a friends that loves reds or berry shades.
The Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection Lipstick Set includes one shimmery gold shade which looks like it could be more of a lipstick topper than a straight up lipstick shade, and then five creme lipstick finishes.
The shades are;
- A Wonderful Awful Idea – beige toned nude
- Oh the Noise – peachy nude
- Who Needs Presents? – deep brown nude
- I Hate Christmas – deep plum
- Mean One – orange toned red
- Mr Grinch – shimmery gold lipstick topper
They appear to have a pretty, glossy finish with great pigmentation, and this set includes the perfect mix of shades for the holiday season, which would work for all skintones.
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Shadow Stick Set
The next item in the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is the Kylie x The Grinch Shadow Stick Set. We saw a cute shadow stick set in the Kylie Sailor Collection, so it’s fab to see another shadow stick set within this Kylie x Dr Seuss The Grinch collection too.
This set includes four beautiful cream eyeshadow sticks in white plastic packaging, and green foil writing and foil illustrations of the Grinch on the lid.
The four shades are beautiful, with a taupe brown, a pink champagne, an olive green and also a bronze – all of which have a shimmer finish, and they really are stunning.
The shade names of the four eyeshadow sticks are;
- Welcome to Who-Ville
- No Hard Feelings
- Risky Biz
What’s exciting about this particular eyeshadow stick set, is that Kylie has improved the formula for extra shine, and they do look very metallic and have almost a foil-like shine.
I love a good cream eyeshadow stick. They’re just so easy to apply, and take a couple of seconds to blend out with your fingertip or blending brush. I particularly love the look of the Grinch shade, as it’s the prettiest shimmery green.
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Shadow Palette
The next product Kylie has revealed as part of her exciting Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is the Kylie x The Grinch Shadow Palette.
This is guaranteed to be one of the most popular pieces within the collection, and I guarantee it’ll be the item that sell out first. Would it even be a Kylie Cosmetics collection without a Shadow Palette?
The Shadow Palette has bright green cardboard packaging with a bright yellow pair of The Grinch’s eyes on the front. It’s quite a simple design, but I love it!
Inside this palette there are 14 eyeshadows containing 0.80g of product, and then 2 eyeshadows containing 0.60g of product. Giving you a total of sixteen shades, which are in square pans, with an amazing illustration of The Grinch next to a mirror inside the lid. Each of the shadows are bordered in metallic foil, and the shade names are also foiled too.
This Kylie x The Grinch Shadow Palette is so so beautiful, with a nice mix of neutrals with some colourful greens to complement the Grinch theme. It’s quite a neutral palette, but it’s definitely going to appeal to more people than a bright colourful green palette would.
The Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection Shadow Palette contains the following shades;
- Mount Crumpit
- Heart 2 Sizes 2 Small
- Stocking Full of Coal
- Dah Who Doraze
- Green ‘n Mean
- Ur a Vile One
- Last Can of Who-Hash
- Fan Who Foraze
- Whos’ Who
- Old Grinch
- Shine On
- Ur a Mean One
- Snarled With a Sneer
Look how pretty the shades are? The mattes all look extremely pigmented, and the shimmers are really metallic and have a pretty sheen. I love the greens in particular as they’re colourful without being too in your face, making it a super wearable palette.
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Pressed Blush Powder
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Pressed Illuminator
Then we have the super cute Blush and Highlighter, which both have the cutest illustrations on the boxes. The Pressed Blush Powder contains 7.6g of product, and the Pressed Illuminator contains 9.5g meaning the highlighter is bigger than the blush.
Both the blush and highlighter have plastic compacts, and the powder pans feature the iconic dripping embossment that Kylie has done on the brand’s Kylighters. The highlighter is called Littlest of Whos and the blusher is called Max The Reindeer.
I really like that the compacts are different colours, rather than being a plain white or black with just a sticker on top. This Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is all about the finer details and I’m here for it!

Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Kyliner Liquid Eyeliner Pen
The next item in the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is the amazing Kylie x The Grinch Kyliner Liquid Eyeliner Pen in the shade Olive. It’s a flexible felt tip liquid liner, which complements the shades in the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection Shadow Palette perfectly.
Olive is the most perfect matte, khaki green which looks stunning! You don’t see a lot of khaki coloured liquid liners, and I would love to pick this liner up myself as khaki is one of my favourite colours to wear on the eyes.
Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch High Gloss Ornaments
The Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection also includes two adorable Kylie x The Grinch High Gloss Ornaments, which come with a little red satin ribbon so you can hang them from the branches of your Christmas tree.
Every collection Kylie launches features at least one shade of her popular High Gloss formula, and the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection includes two ornaments to choose from, each of which contain a different shade of lip gloss.
Each of the two glosses have clear plastic tubes, green foil writing and bright red lids. They’re both very pretty wearable shades, with one being a shimmery gold shade, and the other is a pretty mauve with subtle green shimmer.
The mauve shade is called Sweet Like Candy Cane, and the green shimmer is so unique but perfectly fitting for the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection. The idea of green sparkle in a lip gloss might be a little offputting, but it is super subtle and gives the gloss a unique twist.
The shimmery gold shade is called Snowcapped and it looks like the perfect shimmery gold gloss to layer over the top of absolutely any other lip colour or lip liner. I love both shades of the glosses, they’re very wearable and complement the rest of Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection perfectly.
Kylie has launched some really exciting collections this year, and the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection is no different. It’s nice to see her collaborate with something as popular as The Grinch, and the packaging designs on everything is amazing.
In an Instagram Story, Kylie said that the Kylie Cosmetics x The Grinch Holiday Collection was the most exciting collection she has ever launched, and this is her fifth holiday collection for her brand Kylie Cosmetics.
The Grinch is obviously a super popular Christmassy film, so it makes sense for a holiday collection and so many love that movie, so this collection is going to be extremely popular for sure.
