Clarins Palazzo dOro Collection 11

The Muse heard about Clarins Holiday oh…mmm..’bout a month or so ago. My Clarins rep was ever so happy to share the deets about Clarins Holiday 2009 when I kindly asked and I proceeded to drool all over the place. Now at the time I just had a nice little write up about what was coming out but a few days ago I saw the pictures and my jaw dropped.

Clarins Palazzo d’Oro Collection is everything I love about a holiday collection with a heavy emphasis on sparkling golds for a super glamorous look.

Check it after the jump and be prepared to be wowed!

Would You Buy It? Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Collector Set

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Set

If the Muse was an eye liner girl she’d be in such deep trouble right now.

Why?

Well, hello have you seen the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Collector Set.  Dude, it’s like one of those 500 pack colored pencil sets I had when I was a kid.  It’s valued at a whopping $425 bucks!

What’s inside?  25…count ‘em….25….I really like saying 25.    25 Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Liners!  And by the way they are all full size.  No mini size here!

Is that absurd?   Turns out the kit is $225 and comes housed in a collectible tin, 100 of which are numbered and signed by Dany Sanz creator of MUFE.

So let’s do the math.  Humor me I like math.

25 Aqua Eye Liners purchased separately equals $425 each.  This set is $249  which breaks down each to around $10 bucks each.  But…but…but…FF is on the way….let’s go ahead and do the leg work on the discount…that’s 20% off for a total of around $200 bucks divided by 25 pencils equals $8 bucks or so a liner.

Hmmmm with or without the 20% off it’s still a really killer deal but I’m not sure if I’m willing to dish out $200 dollars on the spot.  Oh the agonizing choices one has to make in the name of cosmetics.

Here’s a list of shades you’ll get:

  • Champagne 23L
  • Fuchsia Pink 13L
  • Purple 11L
  • Black Purple 6L
  • Shimmering Plum 4L
  • Burgandy 18L
  • Pearly Brown 2L
  • Light Brown 19L
  • Light Taupe 24L
  • Bronze Green 5L
  • Bronze 10L
  • Gold 9L
  • Pistachio 17L
  • Green 16L
  • Forest Green 20L
  • Turquoise 7L
  • Blue With Green Highlights 12L
  • Majorelle Blue 15L
  • Iridescent Navy Blue 3L
  • Mat Black 0L
  • Star Black 1L
  • Dark Grey 21L
  • Grey 22L
  • Silver 8L
  • White 14L

God that’s such a bloody delicious line up.  I imagine if I was more into eye liners I’d haul but for now I’m saying it’s a skip for me.

How about you?

Would you buy it?

Instant lem?

Not so much?

Tell me!

Available now at Sephora.
