Tarte The Starlet Makeup Vanity Review, Swatches, Photos

After blogging a few years, Holiday Collections tend to run all together. Seems like brands get more and more repetitive each year with their special sets, palettes, and collections.

Not Tarte.

They had a winning Holiday Season as far as I’m concerned and to add even more joy to their Holiday Collection they released a completely revised version of their traditional “Jewelry” palette.

This year, Tarte’s Starlet Makeup Vanity took an entirely different path and introduced a selection of great shades arranged in such a way that application was a snap and packaging was so beautifully it made us sigh in delight.

DuWop Venom Carousel DuWop Crush 3 Palette

DuWop Venom Carousel DuWop Crush 3 Palette 001

My kingdom of makeup for the DuWop Crush 3 Eyeshadow Palette.

I loved the original DuWop Crush Trio that was introduced 100 years ago so you can imagine my utter delight that DuWop has taken the idea and times it by three and came up with not three, not six, but nine shades of shadow in three trios housed in one palette.

Joy!

Santa is so gifting me this one and throw in the DuWop Venom Carousel too for good measure why dontcha?

I’ve been naughty nice all year!

Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set Review, Swatches, Photos

Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set 1

Lavshuca is one of several brands under Kanebo. The brand is set apart by its princess-y packaging. I’ve always been a rather big fan of the brand but some of the product releases became repetitive so I hadn’t purchased anything from the brand in a while. I try not to miss their LE, special releases for the Holidays although they have changed considerably in recent years from really pretty palettes to coffrets that focus on eyes or lips, etc….

This year, their “coffret” spotlights cheeks with a cute set that includes a blusher and kabuki.
