If you are not a fan of the traditional Christmas collections with red, gold and everything glam, you may love the newest offering from Givenchy.
Their Folie de Noirs collection is dark and mysterious. I would even call it gothic! Definitely my favourite collection from the brand in a while – everything looks gorgeous, and there is nothing I wouldn’t wear.
The star of the collection is the Le Prismissime Yeux Noirs En Folie, £40. 50. You get nine shimmering shades which come in a compact with a star on top.
There are two other products for the eyes – black shimmering eye shadows Ombre Couture Noir Sequin (£18) and a midnight blue mascara Phenomen’eyes Bleu Folie (£23).
Besides the products for the eyes, there are two nail polishes
Yet another beautiful holiday collection is already available from Sephora. Laura Mercier brought out various kits for lips, eyes and cheeks. There is also a travel brush kit. Oh, and a lot of value sets with the brand’s best-selling body care products.

Do you remember the Mineral Eye Make-Up Palette Clarins released last Christmas that so many people loved?
Well, I have great news, this years the brand brought out a new one, which actually looks even nicer to me. It is called The Essentials Eyeshadow Pallete, and it is already available and here for £35.
I have to give it to Illamasqua, the promo images of their new campaign Facets are the best ones they released in this year. Such a beautiful fabric on the background with the rich colours and beautiful dimensional embroidery.
And how gorgeous is the makeup? Inspiration alert!

Guerlain’s Christmas 2014 makeup collection was inspired by the opera and ballet.
Olivier Echaudemaison describes the elegant Guerlain woman in a little black dress, beautiful statement lipstick and a shimmering powder on her décolleté and arms. You can get your inspiration from Natalia on the promo photo, and re-create the look with the help of brand’s new gorgeous products.
Guerlain reproduced Coque d’Or’s original bottle and reinterpreted it in gold-lacquered glass just for this collection. This shimmering golden powder can be used on both body and hair. It is scented with the notes of rose, bergamot and patchouli.
Petrouchka Palette Eye & Blush Palette £56.00 / €77
The palette that, according to the brand is as “dazzling as the gilding of the Bolshoi or the Opéra Garnier.” It contains five eye shadows and four blushes: fresh pink and coral revive the cheekbones; rosewood and brown sculpt them to perfection. See it featured here.
Météorites Perles d’Etoile, £37.50 / €49
This year’s Guerlain meteorites feature the famous bow inspired by Coque d’Or and come in a golden packaging with six shades of pearls inside for a luminous glow.
