I can’t believe that it is November, let alone three weeks until black Friday.
You heard it hear first. Just three weeks from now, Thanksgiving will be over and will be shopping the deals like crazy.
Whether you get out there with the masses or do it from the couch, the holiday shopping frenzy will be ON.
If you are one of the select few that has been shopping already, than I applaud you. I haven’t been really doing so much shopping, but I have been scoping out the deals, and doing some window shopping, per sé.
I have had quite a few holiday collections come in and my, oh, my, there are some holiday palettes that you guys are going to want to add to your holiday wish list STAT. I know that you are going to want to grab some of these soon to create your best holidays looks or add them to to the top of your list. Some of these beauties are just too good to pass up.
NARS Orgasm Infatuation Palette
This limited edition palette features two best-sellers plus a newbie. As soon as I saw it and the absolutely stunning spiked compact, I knew that it was a holiday must. This palette houses the original Laguna Bronzing Powder, the universally-flattering blush in Orgasm PLUS the brand new Orgasm Highlighting Blush which is an effortless highlighter that pretty much looks great on every skin tone.
It’s not often that you get 18 shadows in one palette, and when you get a full range of pigmented shades that run the gamut from day to night, I took notice right away. These shades are gorgeous in every which way possible. Not only are they highly pigmented, long-lasting, blend with ease and crease-free, they come in a variety of finishes. The shades in this palette include mattes, satins, shimmers and full-on metallics. The satin cloth-covered opalescent palette is out of this world.
This eyeshadow palette surprised me! I am not usually looking toward Too Faced for new palettes, but the warm and toasty inspired shades were calling me. The fact that they smelled slightly of gingerbread spice was enough to finish the sale. This eyeshadow palette also contains a full range of 18 shades, though they are mostly warm based in Gingerbread-inspired shades. The shadows are super buttery and long-lasting and come in a range of finishes, but most are satin, shimmers and metallics.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Bronze Mini
I don’t think that I have ever seen Bobbi Brown do a mini Shimmer Brock, so as soon as my eye caught tis mini Shimmer Brick in this beautiful Bronze color palette, I just knew that it was a must! This limited-edition highlighter comes in a sleek gold palette and it instantly delivers soft-focus highlights. With a flattering combination of pale, golden, and rosy pinks, it works on just about everyone.
Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes Eyeshadow Palette
This splurge eyeshadow palette reminds me of a the UD NAKED Cherry Palette, with a twist. It has a few similar rose-based shades, but it also weaves in golds and neutrals. It has twelve shades all together, and it is designed to bring light to the eyes and make the center of attention, which is always a good thing. The formula is beyond spectacular; it is super silky, blends and layers easily, super pigmented and lasts all day. DO not let the light shades fool you; these shadows have power and should be used lightly. I have always been more than impressed with all of the CT products that I have used and they are definitely worth the splurge price point.
