Christmas 2016 Limited Editions
– The Musthaves

When you are hitting the malls these days for Christmas gift-shopping, don’t forget to treat yourself as well with one of these lovely Limited Editions for the Holidays to look at your best this Christmas!

Burberry Beauty 2016 Festive Collection – “Gold Glow” Luminising Powder

This year, Burberry’s glamorous Holiday look has statement red lip colours and glowing-skin finishers. The absolute Star product (so glam & cute!) in my humble opinion is the “Gold Glow”, a radiance-boosting pressed powder that is delicately scented with My Burberry (the perfume). 

The powder can be used across the face (cheekbones, nose, chin, forehead), shoulders and décolleté to highlight the skin with subtle illuminating particles. Easy to apply, fool-proof – just make sure you use a proper powder brush (like MAC’s large powder brushes) for a natural and dosed radiant glow.

Burberry 2016 Festive "Gold Glow" Perfumed Luminising Powder 
Price: 94 SGD
Available at Tang’s, 310 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238864.

MAC 2016 Nutcracker Holiday Collection – Viva Glam Lip Palette

The award for sweetest, most mouth-watering  Holiday Collection goes to MAC’s Nutcracker Holiday Collection. The brand lets us tumble into a magical land of candy-coated goodies that is, well…a bit nutty. Sugar sweet pinks, plum purples, and magic golds is all we want this Christmas. 

Super Sweet: the playful Lip Palette featuring three of MAC’s most iconic VIVA GLAM shades. And looking good does good for others too, as every cent  of the selling price of VIVA GLAM products goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by hiv/aids.

Lancome 2016 Holiday Collection - La Palette des Reves

Another brand that offers us a variety of pinks this Christmas is Lancôme. The “Parisian Pinks Holiday” makeup look was designed by world-famous makeup artist Lisa Eldridge: 

“Holiday Collections are very often just about red and gold, but when I was designing this collection I was very much inspired by beautiful vintage dusty roses, rich minky purple shades and bright fuchsias.”

I’m in love with the eyeshadow palette in this collection, called “La Palette des Reves” a.k.a. The Palette of Dreams. The palette has 6 eyeshadow shades, from a sparkling white and beige to intense brown warmed by a subtle pink and gold. I love that you can create many different looks with just one palette, from a sophisticated barely-there look for the day to a mysterious smokey-eye look for the night. The two key-looks are easily achieved by combining the following shades:

Paris Lumiere Look:
Apply Beige #1 all over the eyelid as a base.
Apply Or Cuivre #2 under the brow bone.
Apply #3 Brun Clair with the edge of the brush on the crease and inside of the eyelid to intensify your look. Finish the look with Le Duo Khôl in Brun Glace & Grandiôse Extrême Mascara.

Paris at Night Look:
Apply Brun Intense #6 all over the eyelid as a base.
Blend with Brun Clair #3 inside the eyelids for a smokey effect.
Finish the look with Le Duo Khôl in Hotel Particulier and Grandiôse Extrême Mascara.

Clé De Peau Beauté 2016 Holiday Collection - Holiday Eye Palette

The theme of Clé De Peau’s 2016 Holiday Collection is “Les Années Folles”: Unabashed, Seductive, and Dizzyingly free. The makeup colours and product designs are true pieces of art(deco), based on The Roaring Twenties. 

My favourite: the Holiday Eye Palette with eight geometrically shaped eyeshadows in sumptuous Art Deco colours like Golden Copper,  Dark Maroon, Glossy Primrose and Deep Sea Green.
