Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster Modern Nudes and Smoky Noir

Hello beauties!

I was actually jumping for joy this morning when I saw the new Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster collection being already released online! This time last year, they were launching the Estee Lauder Holiday 2015 Makeup Artist Collection (review, swatches, photos) which I ordered online and picked up when I got to London a week later. I don’t want to miss this year’s edition as well but from what I’ve seen on the U.S. website there will be two versions, Modern Nudes and Smoky Noir. The difference is in the shades of each palette as well as on the lip colors. Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster Collection offers a lot of skincare and makeup products packed in a black classy travel case for an amazing price.

I personally love the Smoky Noir edition but in comparison to what Estee Lauder Holiday 2015 Blockbuster Collection had to offer, this one appears a bit shallow. The prices have gone up as well considering that last year I paid $59.50 / £54.00 well now we’ll have to pay $62.00 / £58.00. I don’t know if the in UK both versions will be released as on the official website I see now listed the Modern Nudes palette with a different selection of lipstick and lip gloss colors for this set than what it shows on the U.S. website. The terms and conditions for purchasing Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster will vary from country to country so you may check at your local counter. While in U.S. you can get this collection for $62.00 with any Estee Lauder purchase, in UK things are a little bit different and you have to buy any Estee Lauder perfume in order to be qualify for shopping the set (the same happened last year).

I’m not saying that these are not amazing offerings or that the products are not worth the price because they definitely do, but I can’t help comparing them with the last year edition where we also got a Shimmer Palette, 3 full size lipsticks. I guess this year the blockbuster is more full-size so to say, as it features 2 full size lip glosses instead of the 2 mini ones from last year and even if we don’t have a shimmer palette we get a larger eye palette with bronzer, luminizer and blush.

Have fun shopping ladies!

  1. I have to say, the full-size ANR II is the star here. You also get full sized lip glosses instead of deluxe. You lose a lipstick, that shimmer brick, and the eyeshadows are itsier.

  2. I think that this is the best blockbuster yet. Full size ANR and full size lipgloss(2), mascara, lipstick(2). The lipsticks are also the new Color Envy that (my opinion) the best on the market. Also, thank goodness, no eye makeup remover. This collection blows Lancome’s box away.

    • I’ve always been a fan of EL blocksbuster….but this year I see there are different shades in U.S. and UK….I don’t know which one to order. 🙂

  3. All of the lipsticks and lip glosses are full size and are a much better formula than last years older formulation. Full size advanced night repair which alone is worth it plus full size mascara, their new cleanser which is amazing plus an amazing palette of eyeshadows. I can’t believe you thought last years was better. This one is far superior in quality and products. The fact that you can choose which one you would like as well is such a nice option!

  4. Hi i want this set Estee Lauder Holiday Blockbuster 2016 Gift Set Box Kit New Authentic Modern Nude but i donot know where buy this set .?
