I already told you that I love the Lancome gift sets and I often try to get some for myself. Here is the set which a friend of mine bought for me last year in the US. You may think what’s the point of writing about it if it’s not available – it’s because you can see the swatches of 9 Lancome eye shadows and then buy them separately if you like the colours and you can also find out about the quality of the shadows.
The shades which I got in my set are:
- Snap – very beautiful mauve shade, one of my favourites
- Waif – matte ivory, close to my skin tone
- Daylight – matte white
- Colur du Jour – the prettiest colour ever, this is one of my favourite eye shadows from my whole collection. I’d describe it as pinkish purple with delicate gold shimmer
- Pose – metallic bronze
- Filigree – shimmering ivory
- Statuesque – matte black
- Guest List – deep warm chocolate
- Designer – beautiful shimmering khaki
I am not really good at describing colours but I’ve tried my best.
What about the quality of the eye shadows?

Lancome always has amazing gift sets and gift with purchase every holiday. Last years I got a lot of their holiday sets for e.g the Deluxe Brush Set which is also available this year but in different colour. I already got myself the nail polish from their holiday 2010 collection and plan to get some sets as well.
Here are just some sets that I personally think are great, they are both from the UK and the US websites. But I don’t want to overwhelm you and myself (the more I write about holiday sets, the more I want myself) so I’ve chosen only 4 sets and all of them are makeup, no skincare or fragrance this time.

It’s hard to call me a MACoholic but I do love some MAC products and today I want to tell you about one of them.
I got it because the lovely Marlena from Makeup Geek was raving about it all the time and she was telling that this is her most favourite beauty product of all time.
So what is it?
It is an ” aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up”. You get 100ml for £11/$19.
How does it work?
First of all I have to say that I am glad that I got my first bottle several months ago and I believe I will get one more bottle after I finish this one.
This is how I personally use it:
- Sometimes I use some Fix + before
