Makeup obsession: Holiday collections 2011
When it's getting near Christmas, holiday packages, pretty boxes of makeup pallets decorated with glitters are the usual scene at cosmetic departments at leading department stores. I love it when women get crazy about limited edition series, knowing that I'm not alone. So here are my picks for this year's holiday collection.
I'm completely obsessed with anything Karl. His latest collaboration with Sephora is just divine. My super blogger friend, Bagaholicboy has confirmed that the Sephora + Karl Lagerfeld collection will be available in Singapore from 17 November 2011 and only two items in the collection will be available locally. Guess what, it's no other than the eye palette (SGD65) and the snow globe (SGD45) pictured above.
Next is Gareth Pugh for MAC, which is dark and mystical. It's equally intriguing, except it's way more primal. This collection features enigmatic palette of aubergine, smoky grey, charcoal black and steely blue, simultaneously bold and beautiful.
The Gareth Pugh for MAC collection will be available at MAC Stores, as well as online at MACCosmetics.com, on November 23. Prices start at US$15.
These are the complete collection which includes beauty powders, cream shadows, kohl liners, pigment pots, lipsticks, glosses, powder blushes, nail lacquers, and mascaras along with crazy false lashes. Start planning on what to get, for yourself, and for your girls. Oh well, Christmas shopping is just amazing, beyond words. Don't forget to tell me what's your pick.
