MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection Color Story

Hello beauties!

Much have been said about the upcoming MAC Mariah Carey Holiday 2016 Collection and I know how excited so many of you are about this release. I honestly can’t wait for this collection to be released as I have my eyes on a few items and I must admit it’s so hard to resist this gorgeous glittering packaging.

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 / £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).

Chanel Ombres Lamees de Chanel Holiday 2016 Palette

Hello pretties!

Would you look at this exclusive Chanel Ombres Lamees de Chanel eyeshadow palette that just launched online?! It’s breathtakingly beautiful…wouldn’t you say? I know Chanel is not going to launch a holiday 2016 collection since they recently put the spotlight on Collection Libre Synthetic de Chanel (info, photos) so when I saw Chanel Ombres Lamees de Chanel palette, I was thinking …why they didn’t make a holiday collection with items like this one.

Chantecaille Holiday 2016 Collection

Hello pretties!

Browsing online shops this morning I stumble upon Chantecaille Holiday 2016 Collection which got my attention with its new Matte Chic liquid lipsticks that I’ve been reading about lately. On a first look the collection seems quite minimal, probably more products will be joining later on but so far we are talking about only four matte lip colors and two mermaid eye colors. Let’s have a look together! I have promo swatches for you!
