For the makeup lover who has it all, spoil her with something from the much anticipated  Karl Lagerfeld and Shu Uemura Shupette Holiday collection.  A collection inspired by a cuddly white cat with piercing blue eyes. This must have collection is here for a limited time.

The collection contains 15 pieces, including the Shupette Has-It-All Eye & Lip Palette, two eye trios, two rouge trios, blush singles, eyeliners, face powder, and a glitter set. Also included in are faux lashes, nail polish, cleansing oil, a brush set, and an eyelash curler.

A very feminine collection filled with soft pinks, cool blues and soft golds. I sampled one of the eye-need shu eye trios and it doesn’t disappoint!

shupette eye need shu 01

This eye trio is perfection. The colors are so vibrant and I love all the ways I can combine these shades for different looks. I really like that the shimmer is kept to a minimum to show off the color and not overdose on glitter. You can’t go wrong with a gift from this limited edition collection.

Zoya Matte Velvet Holiday 2014

zoya-matte-velvet-collection

I was exited to get a sample of the Matte Velvet line and check out this beautiful new collection. This 6 color collection of matte polishes are to be worn on their own no base or top coat needed. Once the color dries it finishes with a velvety matte finish. Check out the colors from this collection all the photos are taken with two coats of polish.

zoya harlow and dovima

Dovima is a smoky charcoal-black with strong silver shimmer and a velvety matte finish. I love the way this looks on, it looks like chalkboard paint. Would be a great base for nail art.

Harlow is a rosy plum shade with a metallic shimmer and a velvety matte finish. I thought this shade would be too pinky but it has the most gorgeous plum base. Definitely a standout color from the collection.

zoya savita and verushka

Savita is a bold, vibrant medium with strong red and gold shimmer. I am not usually a fan or purple nail colors but the matte look mixed with the depth of the red and gold shimmer make this a standout purple I would wear anytime.

Veruschka is a deep evergreen shade with a a strong metallic shimmer in a  velvety matte finish. Could this be anymore perfect for Christmas? This is such a beautiful color on and I find myself loving it more every time I wear it.

 

zpya posh and loredana

 

Posh  is a  cool toned wine red shade with metallic red shimmer and a velvet matte finish. This is a classic shade with a matte twist.

Loredana is a medium gunmetal grey packed with silver shimmer and a shimmery matte finish. This is not a shade I was choose on my own so I am suprised how much I love it. I love the depth of the color and found it very wearable.

Overall I am very impressed with the Zoya Matte Velvet collection. I loved the matte finish and found this still wore for 3-4 days without chipping or fading. Some colors even lasted a bit longer. This is a beautiful collection and would make great stocking stuffers or a secret Santa gift.

I was a little worried I would look like a disco ball exploded on me with a product called Crystal Confetti. But after my first use I was happy to say its just the right amount, it gives me a bit of a sparkly glow with just a hint of glitter.

The scent is very pretty its reminds me of Cherry Blossom and Amber Blush. And as you can see from the swatch below it just gives a hint of sparkle and would look great for any holiday party.

If you are starting your holiday shopping Bath and Body Works has so many great gifts from stocking stuffers to gift sets. My daughter just turned 10 and she and her friends all have one thing on their birthday and Christmas lists this year….Bath and Body Works!

bath and body works collection

I bought my daughter her first BBW product a few months ago and now the girls are all but obsessed. As you can see above my kids bathroom counter now looks like a Bath and Body works store post birthday. I love that I can go grab gifts for my daughters and her friends. And candles, soap and other great items for the grown up girls on my list.  At this point I probably need a punch card!
