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?
What did you think?
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!
My Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set arrived from Japan last week. Lots of squealing, hyperventilating, and screaming occurred during the surgical procedure of opening and unwrapping the contents of the box it arrived in.
It’s probably my most expensive makeup purchase I’ve made this Holiday season, tipping the scales at nearly $200 USD due to costly airmail shipping.
It’s gorgeous to say the least.
Let’s have a look!
More clicking fun with your mascara. Gotta love mascara that pulls out all the bells and whistles eh? I really liked Almay One Coat Dial Up Mascara, did you try it?
Revlon Custom Eyes Mascara is another dial up design that might interest those of us who like gadget-y, gimmick-y mascaras. I’m not only a member of that geek club, I’m the president yo.
The Body Shop The Sparkler sold out online before I could blink my eye. Damn! It’s the Holy Grail of Holiday Makeup at the moment and damn near impossible to find (I checked a few stores with no luck).
Moral of the story?
If you see it, BUY it. It’s worth its weight in Scrooge’s gold!
