The Holiday Beauty Edit


It doesn't seem that long ago that I did a beauty wish list, but it's that time of year, where the big beauty brands are bringing out their 'Holiday' collections, and I for one am not complaining! Think of these new beauty collections as the perfect items to see you through the new season, as well as a little glamour for the Festive period. Although, I already have something in the pipeline for a Festive beauty look so, watch this space.

Ever since NARS announced they would be teaming up with Steven Klein for their Holiday collection, I've been curious to see what it would be like. The NARS Fantascene collection launched in the UK last week, and there are several pieces that are now high up on my wish list - the Fantascene single eyeshadows in 'Never too late' and Stud are perfect shades for the new season. As for the a Woman's face neutral Lip set - for under £30 for a lipstick, lip pencil and lip liner, you have got yourself a bargain right there. I can see a trip to my nearest NARS beauty counter happening very soon. 

Chanel's Christmas collection is based around their best-selling, Le Vernis Rouge Noir which is 20-years old! I have this shade, and for some bizarre reason I only get it when I visit Paris. It's become sort of a tradition for me to pop in to one of their stores and pick it up - I even got a bottle for my mum last Christmas. The CHANEL Le Top Coat Lamé Rouge Noir is a gorgeous bottle of sparkles - I mean it was love at first sight for my rose-gold obsession. I can imagine this looks a beaut over the Rouge Noir shade. Although, trying to get myself a bottle of this is proving a little tricky - always the way with new Chanel nail colours. 

There's quite a few eye products in this post! However, this Bobbi Brown Sterling Nights eye palette is all sorts of beautiful. I've already had a little play with this on my last trip to one of their makeup counters, and I had to restrain myself not to purchase it (to be fair, I'd bought another eye palette that morning). Mix-and-match shades to create a nude, smokey eye or something a little bolder. I can't stop thinking about it so, it's definitely going in my basket when the new Brighton store opens! 

One of the Holiday collections I look out for each years is by Mac. After my love for last years collection by the brand, this one is a whole lot of different. Magic of the Night includes eye, lip, and face compacts, mini brush sets, colourful pigments, and more - all packaged in jewel tone packaging *swoons*. Mac also have another collection called Enchanted Eve - full of gorgeous sets including the Enchanted Eve Lip and Eye Bag in Copper and Eye Bag in Plum. I know where I'll be making a pit stop next time I'm in town. 

This Charlotte Tilbury make up bag is perfect for chucking all my beauty products in. Plus, the zip pull is a mini lipstick - cute! We all know I'm a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury, and I don't see that going away anytime soon. Her Christmas gifting collection is full of little trinkets and treasures - perfect for stocking fillers. More on that in a few weeks...
