Dior Minaudiere Collection Dior Holiday Makeup Collection 2010

Don’t kill me Dior fans.

But I gotta admit I haven’t been excited about Dior Holiday in a very long time. But after laying eyes on the promo images found on a Livejournal account today, I gotta say, I’m overwhelmed. Wow. These are very me colors and I imagine I’ll be doing a fair bit of hauling if and when all this arrives on US shores.

Please keep in mind the site these were taken from is an International Site so release information, colors, and items may change once the Dior Holiday Collection 2010 reaches our shores.

Estee Lauder Holiday Collection 2010 Estee Lauder Pure Color Extravagant Collection by Tom Pecheux

Everyday I thank the Makeup Gods for blessing us with Tom Pecheux. Since filling the Estee Lauder Creative Makeup Director position, Tom Pecheux has taken the brand, in my opinion, to the next level.

It’s ok, you can admit it, you probably feel like Estee Lauder leans more towards your grandmother’s style makeup right? Hey, I’m there with you. Estee Lauder definitely has a mature audience and hasn’t really ventured past that for many years.

With Tom Pecheux filling the creative director chair at Estee Lauder the brand has started to have a more universal appeal. Collections and colors are becoming more and more interesting and with time I imagine and patience plus more releases like we’ve been seeing as of late, Estee Lauder will not longer be associated with your great aunts and grandmothers.

This proves true with a very interesting limited edition collection Estee Lauder Pure Color Extravagant Collection by Tom Pecheux that releases with the Estee Lauder Holiday Collection 2010 this year.



Smashbox Holiday Collection 2010 Smashbox Wish Holiday Collection 2010 Smashbox Burlesque Beauty Collection

Anyone remember the Smashbox Wish Holiday Collection from last year?

Looks like Smashbox has revived it and is re-releasing it this year with new shades.

Last year Smashbox donated $1 from every purchase of the Wish Holiday Collection to the Children’s Miracle Network which is a non-profit organization that provides medical care, lifesaving research, and on-going education to sick and injured children. I’m not sure if this year’s collection will feature the same charity event but I imagine it will.

One thing that did capture my eye was the new Smashbox Burlesque Beauty Collection which is a four piece set that isn’t part of the Wish theme. It looks cute and I’m somewhat hopeful it might lead to other color releases or a possible Burlesque Color Collection of some sort.

There’s also Smashbox The Gold List which is a value set that includes some interesting golden themed makeup products for the Holiday!

Sephora Color Wand For Lips

So let’s not write off Sephora’s Cosmetics Collection just yet.

I know, I know. I rant about it constantly but Sephora Cosmetics and I have a special love/hate relationship. We’re cool like that.

For example I really like the Sephora Color Wand For Lips…..

Glutton for punishment?
