The MAC & Marcel Wanders aka MAC’s posh Holiday Collection will launch November 24th, 2010. It’s been a while since I indulged in the MAC Special Holiday Collections such as this. I always tell myself I’ll indulge and I proceed to get hooked on some other collection. For some reason, it always fails to excite me.
And as with most years, Marcel Wanders Collection does nothing for me.
It’s been a very long, long, long time since Sephora has launched their catalog online. They used to do a full spread of it a few years ago on their site plus of course, send one out via mail. Nowadays it feels like a hit or miss situation for some. I, thankfully, always get one in the mail but I have a ton of readers tell me they signed up for it but never get it. That’s just sad. Plus add to the fact they haven’t launched it online in a long time and you end up with a few too many grumpy beauty junkies.
They have launched it online this year and you can get your first glimpse here if you haven’t already seen it elsewhere. Some of the looks are elaborate, vibrant, and difficult as hell to pull off but beautiful to behold and filled with plenty of festive good cheer! Take a look and let me know what you think!
Yesterday, I got a coupon from Sephora to get 20% Off my total order in store! The Sephora VIB Friends and Family event starts on November 11th and ends on November 15th so if you’re a Sephora Beauty Member and you’ve reached VIB status you should be getting a coupon via regular snail mail soon!
I imagine Sephora will also e-mail the coupon out as well once the date grows closer so be sure to check your e-mail!
I’m not particularly keen on mass produced palettes from companies such as the Color Workshop, I’m sure you know the ones I mean. That’s why I’m kinda not on board with many of Ulta’s Holiday Palette offerings but I still love looking through the selection from time to time while I’m left to wish and hope that the quality is actually fantastic on a huge palette that contains everything under the moon in terms of makeup and only costs $19.99. It gives me such a warm, fuzzy feeling inside as I day dream.
But fact is I love makeup that much is true so I like looking through both the pretty and the gritty.
Here’s a selection of Ulta’s Holiday Collection 2010. Whether it’s fabulous or just day dreamed to be as such is entirely up to you but at the very least we can enjoy images of makeup right?
Are you an Ulta Holiday Palette fan? Feel free to share it loud and proud.
I nearly flipped over this morning while reading through my mate Zara’s post on Kiss and Makeup. She reports that Benefit Bella Bamba will be a new peachy, watermelon face powder from the brand that launches in February 2011. I never wished the Fall and Winter away so quickly.
She dubbed it, or Benefit did, a 3D Blusher because of the amount of shimmer in it. It comes housed in a flip top box and resembles my beloved Coralista but I think it might prove a softer shade of color with more pink. Either way, I must have it and make it my own.
