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!
What in the world happened this year to The Body Shop Holiday Collection? Damnyummm it sold out quit online and in stores!
Anyone score it?
I was lucky enough to get both of The Body Shop Holiday Eye Palettes in Twilight and Midnight and I’m happy to report I’ve seen them both in two different shops. So even though it’s gone online I do urge you to check your local store if you want them after reading my review.
What did you haul from The Body Shop Holiday 2010? Do share!
Jump ahead for deets on the Holiday Palettes!
I happen to be the first person that screams, “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” when it comes to stick concealers. This is not the 60’s, this is not your mama’s makeup, you do not need concealer in the form of the lipstick. Why? Because I said so.
I’m sorry but stick concealers are way dated, ahem, I’m talking to you $80 Clea de Peau Beaute Concealer.
Seriously, I commonly associate stick concealers with really bad formulas and I just feel like they aren’t the best option when it comes to concealing woe under your eyes. Perhaps it’s easy enough to dab on spots and the likes but I’m one for judging concealer for the way it’ll make my eyes look awake, refreshed, and bright and I can’t really get that effect in a lipstick style concealer or at least I haven’t personally found one that does the trick.
One wonders if the new Revlon Photo Ready Concealer Stick might do the trick?
Shall we explore?
Lavshuca didn’t go the coffret route this year for the Holidays which was a bit disappointing. Nor did they go for a special palette release. They did however release a brand new selection of eyeshadow palettes. This is an interesting release for the brand considering they reserve palette releases for the Spring and only release a special palette or two or a coffret for the Holidays.
Lavshuca is a drugstore brand that can be purchased in Japan. Unlike findings in a US drugstore, Japanese drugstore makeup is of high quality, incredibly pigmented, and just stunning, packaging wise.
For Winter, Lavshuca released a total of five shades of their new Star Decoration Eyes Palettes.
Let’s have a look!
After some serious digging I finally located the Hard Candy Pop Up Palette. Who wouldn’t want it? The promise of cute little pots of Hard Candy Baked Eyeshadow in a pop up design palette a la Urban Decay Book of Shadows with a $15 sweet as honey price tag. It seemed like a great option to feature on Musings as a budget beauty gift or just because we are all bloody fine beauty junkies that need the latest, greatest fix eh?
Wait until you hear this!
