I have alot of favorites this year from the Holiday Collections released but some more than others stand out for me. Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 is an eight shade palette available in two shades selections for Holiday 2011. I’m already very impressed with Bare Minerals for stepping up their game and entering the pressed shadow realm plus the formula is proving to be amazing as well. The Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 brings even more of that great formula to us.
Let’s take a little look at this palette!
Rimmel introduced its HD Glam Eyes Palettes earlier this year in the UK. A celebration of all good things British these eyeshadow palettes feature four shades of shadow in a Union Jack design. Anglophiles like myself swoon when we see makeup and the UK combined.
Formula is amazing on these little guys and the price isn’t too bad either at $4.99 each.
Can you guess the problem though here?
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow has landed on our shores.
Released early last year in Europe, these shadows are making the rounds in drugstores here in the states. So far I’ve caught them at Harmons, CVS, and Walgreens with prices ranging from $7.99 to $9.49.
They got pretty strong raves on UK blogs when they were originally introduced and I was quite curious to try them out for myself so it’s nice to see them locally. L’Oreal has some pretty strong releases for Spring 2012 up their sleeves and I do believe Infallible Eyeshadow will get some strong raves across the board. The formula is very nice however it has a few hiccups worthy of a mention.
Let’s take a peek!
Depending how you look at the Stila DayDream Palette it’s either really exciting or really ho-hum. I happen to fit into the realms of being kinda excited about it and kinda meh about it. Stila released a massive palette like this last year and I generally liked it but fast forward to this year and it gets a bit repetitive and easily duped.
I will say the Daydream palette, in terms of packaging, is visually pleasing. I say “visually” since it actually isn’t practical or user friendly in some cases but more on that later. The price is a very nice $18 as well so if you’re seeking to gift something a little special this is quite cute.

I have a theory that Wet n Wild rushed along their success a little too quickly. Last year, they came out with not only an outstanding Holiday Collection but also some very key catalog items that proved incredibly good for a lower end drugstore cosmetic brand.
This year, they made some valid attempts to top themselves but so far I’m not entirely impressed with the LE offerings particularly ones they released for the Holidays.
