Its officially 51 days until Christmas, which is my favourite holiday of the year. Reason being there are so many makeup and beauty collections that come up at this time. Christmas is so much a favourtite of mine that I have already put my tree up and the lights outside. I mainly just have some finishing touches to take care of.
Moving on, Mark. Cosmetics has launched their holiday collection as of last month and I wanted to share 2 items that were sent that I have been eyeing for a long time. 2 months to be exact. First off is their Eye Dream of Glam palette. This palette is heaven in a box for those who love to use shadows wet or dry. The Eye Dream of Glam is 16 marbelized shadows all of which has insane pigment and colour saturation. They are also very smooth in texture. As I said you can use them wet for a more intense foiled look or dry for a more subdued look.
The size of the shadows are quite big at 2.2 g each so you will get some good use out of them. The palette itself is $40.00 which I think is perfect because of the size of the shadows and the packaging.
The On the Dot lip gloss compact, did not wow me. I guess given that it is a holiday inspired compact I expected more. The glosses itself did not have too much colour pay off. It is more for someone who is looking for a natural look or something to layer over a matte lip. In the On the Dot lip gloss compact there are 9 shades to choose from that are quite similar in colour. there is 3.33g of product for $18.00 which isn`t too much but just enough to throw in your purse.
I am in love with the eye palette the lip palette not so much. I may just give it to the wee one to play with so she stays out of my stash. If you are interested in ordering the palette it is limited edition and can be purchased at 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca
