Holiday Collections 2011
For the second year in a row Lorac has introduced a six piece lipgloss set for the Holidays. The Lorac Bejeweled Lip Gloss Collection adds a little bit of flair this year with sparkle versus last year’s collection which features full color glosses sans the festive finish of shimmer!
At 0.11 oz per a gloss and $25 for the set you’re looking at a mere $4.10 per a gloss. This is truly a great deal to say the least particularly if you knock off an extra $5 from the $25 during Sephora Friends and Family.
Let’s take a peek at these glosses and see what I liked about them!
Givenchy takes things to a new and exciting level with Phenomen’Eyes Mascara for the holidays. Picture it, Gold Sparkles Phenomen’Eyes Mascara!
Dare you to say that gold sparkles doesn’t evoke excitement and possibly foaming at the mouth.
The mascara now is available in a twinkling gold shade, designed to give lashes a sparkling finish for the holidays!
It’s available now, for a limited time at Sephora and Sephora.com
Don’t overlook the power of Lorac Eyeshadows dood. They make some seriously nice potted shadows and their new Shimmer & Shine Set contains three!
This seven piece collection features 99% full size products, score! Who doesn’t love sets that pack in the full size items right?

- Lorac Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in Polished (light opalescent pink)
- Lorac Visual Effects in Jet Black

The set is $37 and available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
P.S. I normally toss makeup bags into a bin (it’s get a little out of control in there) but this bag actually looks like it has potential!
So you like lipgloss but you don’t like having to pay $20 or more for a single gloss from your favorite brands?
That’s why the Holidays are a great time to indulge as brands package up glosses in an array of various sets that house smaller, minis sizes (or if you’re lucky larger, full sizes) for half the price. Mini isn’t always better in my personal opinion as I tend to run through them fairly quickly but you are getting variety here and that’s always important. Plus unlike powder products I find that Lipgloss Sets tend to stay true to their formula, ie, the formula isn’t cheapened or reformulated to fit the smaller price tag.
Here’s a few of my recommendations and picks to add to your Sephora Friends and Family order because 20% off plus the already low price tag of the set really makes things all the sweeter!
With Sephora Friends and Family 2011 in full force here are some helpful hints on which palettes are worth the haul.
Love them or hate them you can’t deny that palettes are where you get the most bang for your buck. You can spend $25 on a single blush or you can indulge in a palette that will range from $39-$55 that includes several blushes, several eyeshadows, and possibly more.
Of course, palettes suffer downfalls sometimes and quality isn’t always up to par with the standard line of cosmetics offered by your favorite brands plus let’s not forget contending with creams and powders in one cramped place. But if you can get passed the drama of palettes you’re in for a treat because darling they do so offer the very best bang for your buck.
Here are some suggestions and recommendations for the best palettes to snatch up during Sephora Friends and Family 2011 since 20% off sweetens the deal even further doesn’t it?
