Ahh Chanel spicing things up this year with their Les Tentations de Chanel Holiday Collection 2010. It doesn’t quite meet the traditional standards in our Holiday makeup world does it?
Delicate shades of brown, pops of pink, and hints of bronze make up Chanel Holiday 2010 and one gets more of a vibe of Spring than Holiday at first glance. But try it out for size and flushed cheeks and a fierce smoky brown eye later and you’ll agree this does indeed speak the language of Winter.
Did you haul it?

Lady Gaga is up for her 2nd year as the official spokeswoman for the MAC Vivia Glam Campaign. This year Gaga teamed up with Cyndi Lauper for the 2010 launch and MAC proclaims it was their most successful year ever. The MAC AIDS Fund has raised more than $190 million dollars for the cause since its founding in 1994.
Lady Gaga runs solo this year for the 2011 campaign.
The visual is incredible as you can see above but I wonder if that’s the shade they will be launching? If so it’s very outside the normal pink, red route that MAC embraces for Viva Glam!

Gaga is looking all kinds of angelic.

I did a little too much damage during the 50% off site wide sale at NYX during Thanksgiving weekend. Ouch! But who resist at these prices?
I was excited to haul some of the mega palettes they had and I gotta tell you, so far, I’m not disappointed!
Even if you missed the sale, NYX still calls to the beauty budget souls among us. Check out their blush if you’re seeking pigmented yet wallet friendly.
I tried the shade Desert Rose and loved it!
Anyone try the new Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Fragrances yet? I got ‘em in the mail yesterday and proceeded to go to down misting myself silly.
My best friend Jai was with me at the time and he just gave me the silent eye raise that translated as, “You are so not doing that.” Hey, that’s part of the fun of trying new fragrances eh?
Wicked Style is a really huge revamp from the original line up. We discussed it in prior posts but it deserves a re-mention here. The girls now have velvet-y bobble-like heads and outfits that adapt various fashion styles from Japan. Baby for example is wearing Kawaii Decora which is a playful style adapted from younger Japanese girls that uses lots of layering and bright or pastel colors and accessories that include furry toys and jewelry.
