Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #5

Make Her Up Must Have's 2014


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


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.
