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)

The Christmas present you must buy – LORAC’s NEW Box Office Sensation!

Usually these sort of palettes – where they put everything together – do not interest me. They’re usually poor quality products, or colors I just don’t like. But when I saw this product, I was absolutely STUNNED with how amazing it is – and especially for the price! Each of the colors are spectacular! You have 36 gorgeous eyeshadows, 9 lipglosses, three blushes and one bronzer!? Seriously!?

And the best part of the whole thing is that it’s not some no-name brand. It’s LORAC! I absolutely love LORAC, they make amazing products. This is one gift that would make any girl ecstatic. Take my word for it – this is the must-have beauty gift of the year. I felt like a kid on Christmas when I opened it.

And how cute is the case! It is a cute little box – with a huge mirror. Perfect for vacations or trips! What am I rambling on about – just go order it!

LORAC’s NEW Box Office Sensation is a  breathtaking collection of 49 products for the eyes, lips and cheeks in a glamorous, mirrored train case.

This decadent set contains 36 eyeshadows, nine lip glosses, three blushes, and one bronzer that will help you bring out your inner starlet. Packaged in a compact, faux-crocodile train case with swing out shelves, this cute little number with a dazzling variety of colors packs a big punch.
