Give the gift of beauty this season with the top picks from stars' cosmetic brands. While Kylie Jenner may take the crown for most lucrative mogul (she sold 51 percent of her Kylie Cosmetics company to Coty beauty this month for $600 million), plenty of other stars are holding their ground in the beauty business, including Drew Barrymore, Jessica Alba and Tracee Ellis Ross. 

From Fenty Beauty to Haus Laboratories, fans can shop products including lipstick, moisturizers, serums and more. See the latest gift options from Rihanna, Lady Gaga and more stars' companies.
