2016 Beauty Holiday Collection Part 1

Christmas is probably the best time to shop for beauty products. With so many brands parading their limited edition, it thrills a little when you get to snatch a lipstick or two. To be honest, who can resist that glittering packaging and oh-so-gorgeous limited edition shades that the brands probably won't feature ever again. Let's cut the story short and see what damage we can do to our purse:

Jill Stuart Makeup & Relax Collection 2016
This is not available in Malaysia. But for our viewing pleasure, it is worth mentioning in this post. For our friends who will be visiting Japan or Hong Kong soon, do check out the Jill Stuart holiday collection. The entire collection is inspired by tweed texture which reminds me a lot of Chanel jacket. It is also very pastel, a different take from the usual Christmas colours. 

Lunasol 2016 Party Coffret Collection

This is a simple collection with smokey eyeshadow palette, blush and highlight palette, eyebrow pencil and lip tint. The fur pouch is something different from the usual makeup pouch we see. It is also usable for Christmas party.

Laura Mercier 2016 Holiday Collection

Lack of Christmas feel, but the shades are definitely useable for daily look. The Laura Mercier Holiday Collection is always sold out within few days. The leopard print packaging is not my thing, but I'm sure someone out there will love it. 

M.A.C. Nutcracker Sweet Holiday Collection

This is a massive collection by M.A.C. We're talking about a dozen shades of lipstick, at least 2 dozens of eyeshadow shades. It is a full colour makeup collection with vivid and playful colours that we don't normally see. The packaging is adorable and if you are looking for a gift, there is definitely something for every girl in this collection. This collection is already in M.A.C. store Malaysia and online delivery is also available. 

Tom Ford Winter Soleil Collection

It's a white Christmas for Tom Ford. The usual black and sleek packaging is now white and still sleek. The palette is gorgeous. The lipsticks are average. And the brush set is too expensive to own (about RM2000+). Tom Ford is not available in Malaysia. The nearest place to get it is in Takashimaya in Singapore.

M.A.C. Mariah Carey Holiday 2016 Collection

Everything about this collection screams diva from afar. The limited edition nude lipsticks would be a sell-out, so grab your hands on it. Besides that, the bronzer with Mariah's face imprint is also something special in this collection. The packaging is gorgeous and this is definitely something that everyone is looking forward to. 

Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette

This is not exactly a Christmas collection, but the palette will be released in Christmas. This is something I am looking forward to get one. It is a colour palette that has all the spectrum which covers all the colours that I need. Well, not that I need so many colours, but it is too pretty to be ignored.

Estee Lauder Blockbuster Collection

Each year Estee Lauder will be releasing their blockbuster collection. This year, there are two collections! The Modern Nudes and Smoky Noir. Both the collections come with a small leather bag that can be used as go-to purse. 

YSL Holiday Kiss & Love Collection

This collection has 3 different shades that aren't ordinary shades - Rouge Romantique, Corail Colisee, and Beige Leger. I really love the coral lipstick. The matching nail polish is a must to get as well. This is up on my Christmas wishlist.  

More coming soon... Wait for it before you go out on your Christmas shopping.
