Here is a preview of Chanel’s holiday 2014 makeup collection – Plumes Precieuses.
The star products are definitely the highlighting powder – Camelia de Plumes in Platimun (£47) and Les 5 Ombres de Chanel (£42) Oiseaux de Nuit: luminous white, soft grey lavender, intense grey, intense black, antique gold.
Other products are: Joues Contraste (£31/$45) in Caresse, shimmering peach, Illusion d’Ombre ( £25/$36) in Envol, shimming peach, Stylo Yeux Waterproof (£19/$32) Or Blanc, white gold. Mascara Inimitable Intense Essential Noir (£25).
Every year I say that holiday beauty launches are the best. Why? You can get value sets from your favourite brands, and save some money; or you can get a kit from a brand that you’ve always wanted to try, and that will give you an idea about the quality and the performance.
What else? You can buy a set of glosses/liners/nail polishes, leave some shades for yourself, and give others to your girlfriends.
You just can’t go wrong! And here is a preview of the Bobbi Brown’s beauty offerings for this Christmas.
Deluxe Lip & Eye Palette ($80). Comes in a tortoise shell palette and includes different shades of Creamy Lip Colors and Eye Shadows. You also get a mini Eye Shadow and Lip Brush.
Lip Gloss Trio ($48). Lip Glosses in Pink Sunset and Pink Pop, Midnight Violet High Shimmer Lip Gloss.
