Benefit Cosmetics Holiday 2010 Collection. US Edition

I’ve already posted about most products from the Benefit holiday 2010 makeup collection and just like Smashbox, it reminds me of their 2009 holiday collection which is nice in my opinion because you can get things that you couldn’t get last year.

So I’ve already wrote about Benefit’s sets Her Name Was Glowla and Some Beauty To Love. Their new set (which I really want) Femme Metale. And some new products such as Prrrowl, Girl Meets Pearl and Magic Ink Jet-Black Liquid Eyeliner.

I already said that millions of times and will say it again: I love holiday collections because you can get a lot of great value sets.

I’ve noticed that there some different sets for the UK and US . So I’ve decided to write 2 posts.

Black Mascara Alternatives: Plum, Brown and Oxblood

I think I have already told this story, but why not sharing it once again. When I was a child the most fascinating thing for me, makeup-wise, was a colourful mascara. I remember that I was about 6, when I saw a girl with blue eye lashes, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off her. I promised myself that when I grow up – I will have a lot of different shades!

And, although, I don’t really wear blue or green mascaras that often – I do like more subtle versions for a change. Here are three that I want to share with you.

Black Mascara Alternatives Plum Clarins, Brown benefot and Oxblood Rouge Bunny Rouge

Clarins Instant Definition Mascara in Intense Plum (review)

This was a Limited Edition, but since it’s my favourite colourful mascara that I ever owned, I had to include it. Plus, you can still get it from Amazon.

The formula is brilliant, is gives you that wow-effect, nice volume and intensity.   I adore wearing it when I opt for a bright lip and want to keep my eyes look more subtle (and more  interesting than just black) but still defined. Actually, I get a lot of compliments when I am wearing it.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review)

I am the biggest oxblood fan, I have been wearing it for years

What’s Inside My Makeup Bag Right Now

I like reading such type of posts from time to time and I’ve realised that I never did one myself. So I took one of my makeup bags which happens to be Estee Lauder (I like it because it’s a big one and I can put quite a lot of products inside) and just took all the items which were inside so that you (and myself, as I can never be 100% sure what’s inside) can take a look.

Now this is not the makeup bag that I take with me obviously! Why would I need this all anyway?  These are just the products that I was using at the moment.

So do you want to see what’s inside?! Then keep reading!
