Marc Jacobs Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyl – Sheer in 308 Heart Shaped

This lovely shimmering baby pink lip gloss won Allure 2013 Best of Beauty award! I tried it in store a while ago and totally fell in love with it! The color is so perfect for everyday wear with just enough pop of color to brighten up complexion. It's definitely coming home with me for sure. :)

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette

I love palettes. I love nudes. I love browns, especiall warm browns as they are so versatile and easy to wear and they are perfect for
any occasion! I don't own any Bobbi Brown eyeshadows so this will be a great opportunity to try the formula and different colors at

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

Another brown shadow palette! This one is by Smashbox. Contains 14 beautiful shades of neutral colors ranging from wheat, to midtone grey, to brown, and to complete black! This is definitely an all-around palette perfect for creating both daytime makeup looks as well as dramatic smokey eyes!

Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2

There's no doubt Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are the best on the market for pencil eyeliner. I've been collecting them for years now and I don't think I'll want to miss this set! Also introduced for the first time (exclusive to this set) is the new never-before-seen neon-green Grindhouse Double Barrel Sharpener!

Dior Holiday Couture Collection

Oh my… what a lovely, lovely palette! Dior never fails to impress me with their luxurious and oh-so-elegant packaging. This palette has everything you need to create smokey looks and glow looks! There are 2 sets of eyeshadows, 2 lip glosses, 2 lipsticks, a shimmering pressed powder and a mascara! Now, we are talking about a great deal!

Marc Jacobs I Lovemarc Collection

Not one, but THIRTEEN Marc Jacobs Lip Gels in this limited edition set! Okay, this set is definitely out of my reach for sure, but we can still “wish” right? This set comes with a new perfect red shade called Showstopper (and look at her red packaging – totally stands out from the crowd!). le sigh… it's so pretty…

Buy: Sephora ($350)

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Set

This has to be one of the better deals for the holiday sets! Ten rich eyeshadow colors (they are removable, too – how cool!), a waterproof eyeliner, a brow pencil, a tweezer (full-sized), and a lining and blending duo brush! The price is a total steal. :)

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil

I've heard so much good things about Hourglass eyebrow pencil! Its triangular tip is supposed to simplify eyebrow filling experience and allow precise application. On the other end of the pencil is a spoolie brush for blending and distributing color. I'm running low on my current eyebrow pencil so I might just pick this one up!

Tarte Off The Cuff Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Palette & Bracelet

I am completely in love with this palette! Four blushes and a bronzer in a portable size palette. And look at that gorgeous little bow cuff! If you haven't tried Tarte blushes before, now is the time! :) (read my review here)

Benefit Countdown To Love Advent Calendar

When it comes to beauty minis – Benefit does it best! This fun calendar comes filled with 20 mini size products and a bracelet, a necklace, and a barette! The Pop Art box is pretty huge! Perfect for gifting and stocking stuffer (and there's nothing wrong with buying one for yourself, too!).

Buy: Sephora ($68)

Too Faced Better Than Sex Modern Matte Collection

I've been lusting after Too Faced matte eyeshadow palette for sooo long so I think I'll splurge on this one! The set also comes with a mascara, an eyeliner, an eye primer, and a three-piece brush set. I already own the brush set so I'll probably gift it to my friend. But everything else I keep! :D

Buy: Sephora ($65)

Urban Decay The Mother Lode Shadow Set

Okay, this set definitely out of my reach again but if you have the budget I say go for it! You get EVERY single shade of full size eyeshadows (68 total) from Urban Decay and a four-pan Build Your Own Palette! There are mattes, satins, shimmer & glitter, and duotones in the set. If only I had the funds!

Buy: Sephora ($595)

Kat Von D Spellbinding Lipstick Set

We girls can never own too many lipsticks right? ;) In this set you get 10 different colors including pink, red, crimson, coral, and even purple! These are mostly rich & bold shades so they are definitely not for the color shy! The mini size is so cute! Keep a few shades and gift the rest as they are great for stocking stuffer, too!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

This palette features 3 of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders; Dim Light, Incandescent Light (exlusive to this set), and Radiant Light. The set also comes with a mini bottle of Veil Mineral Primer. These powders are so soft and add radiance to your complexion in the most sophisticated way (read my review here).

    I don’t know if u have ordered or not, but bobbi brown that chocolate palette wasn’t as good as it looks, at least in my opinion. The fourth and fifth shades are just so difficult to get color pay off, and some of the others are not so pigmented either. But I get it looks really tempting ;)

      It was out of stock even before the sale so no, I didn’t have a chance to get it! Thank you for the info, I’ll be spending my money on something else then. :D
