I'll start with Tarte. This years Holiday palette is called The Starlet Makeup Vanity ($505 value) for $52.
It comes with 24 eye shadows (matte and shimmer), small size mascara and primer, 2 blushes, bronzer and a shimmer powder in a really pretty mirrored makeup vanity. I mean, really, it's insane how much you get for $52. And I don't have one that is mirrored...
Stila has a really cool looking palette for Holiday 2011 called Dream in Full Color Palette. It's a $366 value for $39. It has 29 eye shadow shades, 7 cheek colors, a smudge stick and a 12 page step by step look book. Great price, looks really fun. Choices, choices!
MAC is offering Holiday '11 face kits. $59.50 Inside a cute and festive bag you get a double layer brow/eye shadow/blush compact, Lipglass and 3 glitter-handled brushes. It comes in cool or warm tones. I don't have any glitter brushes guys and I do love sparkle!
This next one is really elegant. It's Christian Dior's Holiday Eye Palette - Celebration Collection. $46
The classy tweed mirrored compact with iconic bow and charm details includes smoky brown and beige eyeshadows, cream eyeliner and a highlighter. I would feel really fancy pulling this out of my purse to do a quick touchup at a party. Hmmm....
Lancome paired up with Kate Winslet for a really special holiday 2011. Kate is the ambassader for the Golden Hat Foundation, a non profit to raise funds to better the lives of children living with autism. They have put together a holiday collection "that brings to life the spirit and message of the charity".
You should go to Macy's web site to get the specifics. The Golden Hat Collection includes Le Lipstique LipColouring Stick with Brush (you can choose from a number of colors), L'Asolu Roughe Advanced Replenishing and Reshaping Lipcolor (also avail in a number of colors), Le Vernis Devine Lasting Color & Shine nail polish and Gloden Hat Illuminating Smoothe Powder. I have some very close friends who's children are autistic and buying this holiday collection is a wonderful way I can support them. I really love when celebrities like Kate give back. Way to go Kate!
Oh no! I want them all. I'm still not sure what to do. What about you?!
