Ahh gold makeup for the holidays as traditional as mistletoe, wrapped presents, and figgy pudding. We didn’t get alot of gold this year did we? Do you miss it? I thought I didn’t since we got a healthy injection of it the past few years but I’m a sucker for tradition and now that I look back on Holiday 2010 I can’t help but feel, maybe, I do miss a bit of gold in my Holiday looks!
Never fear, Avon is here with its 24K Glamour Holiday Collection that includes eyeshadow palettes, eyeliner, mascara, and glosses that contain a healthy injection of gloss. Beauty budget types will love these prices.
Check out my review below!
Anyone successful scoring some of the Hard Candy Holiday Gift Sets? Lots of endless, useless, and torturing steps through the Evil Empire but no luck here.
Good news though, some are available on Walmart’s website and have free shipping if it appeals!
I did get a Hard Candy Bad Girl Next Door Set to try out which should appeal to those wanting a quickie, budget smoked out eye look!
I’m always envious of chicas that can sport a nude lip look and a smoky eye. I really can’t do the nude lips unless I wanna look living dead girl like. It’s not pretty put it that way!
If it’s your deal dears you’ll love the Buxom Samantha’s Smoky Eye Kit. This four piece wonder is loaded up with essentials for creating that perfect nude lip and sultry smoky eye look!
I gotta admit that I thought the Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection was an ickle boring but part of it’s appeal was 1. it’s packaging and 2. its auto delivery status on QVC.
Basically Bare Escentuals packaged this up on an auto delivery which offered new seasonal colors every few months. Fabulous gift in my humblest which is why I ordered some as just that but I couldn’t go without getting one for myself because they came in a hat box. Gush! Totally slayed me. Couldn’t resist that kinda packaging. I know, I know I shouldn’t give into the packaging demons but I couldn’t resist plus hey it was a mere $36 dollars for several full size BE products. Not a bad deal all around.
But the colors…well they are a bit meh but wait until you see them in action!
Physicians Formula has a new Glam Collection Shimmer Strips Gel Eyeliner available for the Holidays. The collection features three new strips of Shimmer Eyeliner and three new mascaras. They break these up into eye color groups as in “select this color to flatter blue eyes”, “select this color to flatter brown eyes” and so on and so forth. I’m personally not keen on anyone telling me what flatters my eyes most as I’m of the mentality that anyone can wear any shade of color they choose. Granted some shades simply don’t work for me but most are a-ok and I don’t limit what I wear because I have brown eyes…..Just because I have brown eyes doesn’t mean I have to stick to wearing golds, browns, and black because Physicians Formula told me so.
Get my rant?
Aside from that the idea behind the product is interesting since it gives you not one, not two, but three gel eyeliners in stackable jars.
