    Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have Number 7!

    Clarins 2010 Holiday Barocco Collection is inspired by the dramatic, daring and sensual style of the baroque period. From luxurious draperies to rich golds – this historical time was one of excess, glamour and mystery. The new collection from Clarins introduces four limited edition pieces that celebrate every woman and her unique beauty.

    These new products make my list, because, well, I love them! The makeup itself is beautiful – but the cases, the cases each look like a piece of jewelry! I swear I feel like royalty when I pull them out of my purse.

    I love this new collection. I love the golds, and deep black. It makes for a glamorous evening look. I know anyone else would love these pieces. One of them – or heck – all of them! They’re wonderful!!

    * Barocco Face Palette: A soft, light compact powder with a scroll motif in peachy-pink and sandy-beige. The combination of the two shades is perfect for illuminating the face or adding matte touches to the complexion. ($55)

    * Barocco Shimmering Gold Powder for Face and Décolleté: An elegant black and gold powder box holds little nuggets dusted with golden pearl. With a sweep of the puff, they release a fine powder to beautifully enhance the skin with sparkling reflections. (Here)

    * Barocco Eye Colour Trio: A trio of shades that create the perfect smoky eye for day and night with these ultra-fine textures that can be combined, layered or blended together for perfect holiday makeup. Create a wash of bronze to enhance the eyes, black to define the eyelids and gold to catch the light and brighten the inner corners. ($40)

    * Barocco Rouge Prodige: The purple velvet drapes of the Baroque period are the inspiration for the colour of this lipstick. The rich formula combines long-hold colour, extreme shine and total comfort. ($24)

    Jocelyn’s Must-Have Number 9!

    My Must-Have Number 9 makes the list this year because I absolutely cannot live without it! It really is an amazing product that makes my eyes look so much better! I smooth it on after I’ve finished my eye makeup, and it really completes the look. The gel cools the skin, and gives my under-eyes a finished, airbrushed look. You won’t be disappointed, this really, truly is a Must-Have product!

    Love, love, love LORAC’s Visual Effection Collection!

    I’m in love with Lorac’s new collection, the Visual Effection Collection! Curl, separate, and lengthen your lashes with Visual Effects Collection by Lorac. A $47 value. Collection includes:

  • Visual Effects Mascara in Jet Black and Midnight Blue
  • Travel Size Behind the Scenes Travel Primer
  • I tried blue mascara for the first time (in at least a decade) last night – and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised! It’s not obviously blue – it’s very subtle. But subtle enough to make a difference! It just made my eyes pop! I tried to take a picture – but you couldn’t really tell clearly, so I’ll spare you the cell phone picture of myself.

    Anyway – I love this new collection! My only complaint (and it’s just my personal opinion) would be the mascara brush. I’m just not a fan of the wand. I like a bristle brush – not a plastic brush… it’s a very strange applicator. Other than that – I loved it!
