Holiday Collections 2007
The Muse’s most favorite beauty gossip Betsy has alerted me to the fact that Sephora is slowly updating the site with the Guerlain Holiday Collection.
And Betsy would be very right.
Not much so far but my little eye did spy the Guerlain Golden Lash Top Coat Mascara.
As Seen on Sephora.com:
The top coat is $30 and happily encrusts your lashes with bits of sparkling gold! Yum!
Wish List anyone?
While you are most eagerly awaiting the Muse to get her shipment of the Givenchy Holiday goodies you can head over to visit with the most lovely Iris and see close up pics she has on her blog of the entire collection.
These pictures are the best I’ve seen so far in regards to detail! She’s even included the nailpolishes that I knew nothing about!
Click on over and visit with my favorite beauty addict 😉
The Muse’s lovely mate Janice has done all the hard work for us and has been busy like a bee compiling all the prices for the Holiday Color Collections.
If you have your wish list and was wondering how many pennies you’ll need to save to make that list a reality do head on over to Specktra Blog and see the price list.
All prices are USD so if you happen to be in Europe, Asia, or some other exotic part of the world you can compare your country prices to the US prices (which I’m sure you’ll find are far more cheaper in comparison)!
One of our lovely readers, Betsy, has alerted the Muse that the Givenchy Holiday Collection is for sale at Saks!
The Muse wasted no time in calling Saks up and asking if she could come down and grab some of the yummies for herself!
Much to my delight my MA told me I didn’t have to come down that she’d ship it all free plus load me up on some goodies!
I couldn’t resist and I ordered the entire collection minus the nail polish (which I didn’t even know was part of the collection).
SQUEAL! I can’t wait for it to arrive! I could have just gone over but it’s chilly, overcast and about to rain so while I’m driving home from work I can have visions of Diamonds and other yummie Givenchy bits run through my head!
Thanks Betsy for the heads up!
The Muse suggests heading out to your nearest Saks and grabbing this while the grabbing is good because I know for a fact this is going to FLY off the shelves before you can say I want it!
I didn’t expect this collection for a good solid month yet and believe you me I’ve been stalking both the Saks and Sephora websites for updates! If it wasn’t for Betsy I wouldn’t have been so lucky to nab it!
If you want more details on the collection do click my above link (Givenchy Holiday Collection is highlighted with an embedded link for your viewing pleasure) or head on over to visit with the Muse’s mate, Erika, to see the details on this very FINE collection! Click!
Keep your eyes peeled for an early Holiday FOTD using this collection PLUS nice, juicy pictures and reviews when it arrives!
I’m noticing a major trend in the cosmetic gift giving selection this year. That’d trend would be minis!
I mean we obviously love full size products but hell don’t we love mini versions that we can tuck in our purses and makeup bags for touch ups here and there and everywhere?
Urban Decay has graced us with it’s mini 24/7 Kit which you can check out by clicking here.
Benefit has it’s new Powder Pop! palette available which contains mini versions of it’s popular powder line. You can droll over it by clicking here.
Stila has a mini kit of it’s lipglazes which I purchased yesterday! You can see my first impression here.
And now some more minis that are popping up at Sephora for the Holiday Season! Let’s have a look.
Napoleon Perdis Lip Couture Set for $35
Ok so these might not qualify for mini but I’m making the big assumption these aren’t the big sizes.
Next on our menu the Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Lip Polish Set for $28
Next on our list of minis would be the Bourjois Paris Kisses From Paris Set for $18
A cocktail of lipglosses for you! Lorac Mini Mini Mocktail Bar for $25
The best deal yet (I believe this might be full size but don’t quote me on that) would be the Smashbox Light Speed Lip Gloss Collection for $29!
Tarte has a new trio of cheek stains as well which are $30 and entitled We Wish You Happiness Mini Cheekstain Set. This isn’t very new because Tarte has these as normal catalog items and plus they offer them almost every holiday season however from year to year the case they come in changes which is fun!
Minis aren’t new to Sugar Cosmetics but they always have some of the cutest minis I’ve come across 😉 This one is called Glitterati and has glitter on one end a light matching cream base on the other! The set is $32.
So..what’s so great about minis anyway? Well minis are great for toting around for touch ups plus they are so lightweight that they fit in the smallest of places which makes for easy storage! You also get a slew of variety and bang for your buck by purchasing these sets! It’s such a great way to try several items in one cute kit.
Get shopping 😉 Grab some of these as gifts while you’re at it!
