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.

MAC Spring 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection Swatches

Hello beauties!

I honestly couldn’t wait to show you the two new retro matte lipsticks shades that I got from MAC Spring Summer 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection (info, photos). The announcement for this collection was made back in early summer and we knew that 50 makeup items for face, eyes and lips were coming our way in the beginning of 2017. Responsible with creating the new lip product shades for MAC SS 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection is Kabuki himself and even though the color story hasn’t been revealed yet, there are swatches of several shades running on Instagram. I’ve teased you earlier today with live swatches of MAC Kabuki Magic retro matte lipsticks so I thought of quickly taking a few photos with my phone and do a little preview before I get to try these more seriously for upcoming reviews.

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!
