OPI California Dreaming Summer 2017 Collection

Hello pretties!

I was to fast forward to summer if I could and let the sun enter in my room once again and start planning that summer vacation as I didn’t have the chance to do it this year. Giving you a first look at OPI California Dreaming Summer 2017 Collection takes me one step closer to the hot season. It surely looks like the new OPI Summer 2017 nail lacquer collection will be featuring red toned shades and a couple of nudes, nothing to bright or colorful like in the past years. I’m a fan of pink and nudes myself so I don’t mind the selection of colors but if you are looking for blue, green and yellow shades that are more summer oriented, you may want to skip this collection.


This summer take, a west coast trip with the California Dreaming collection by OPI.

OPI invites salon professionals and consumers to experience its beloved home state, featuring a palette of fun, sexy shades ideal for your next great adventure. Travel with OPI for a day at the beach or a quick surf session, to a hike in the mountains or wine-tasting in Napa. Take a road trip with OPI!

Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars Collection

Hello pretties!

Is that time of year again with great gift sets and gift with purchases come alive. This year Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars is offering a variety of five skincare products for you to try out, as well as a lip conditioner and eye masked packed together in a chic black and white travel case. I’m a sucker for this kind of offerings as I feel they give you a great opportunity to try out various skincare products at an affordable price and then decide if you do want to purchase the full size products.


I bought last year edition of Estee Lauder Beauty of the Night Holiday 2016 Collection (review, photos) so I’m thinking of getting this one as well. I really enjoyed using the Advanced Night Repair eye cream and synchronized recovery complex II so I got them over the past year as deluxe sizes with my Estee Lauder purchases.

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 / ÂŁ54.00 well now we’ll have to pay $62.00 / ÂŁ58.00. 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).
