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.
Aaron de Mey make–up case, £200
Available only at Selfridges, recreate Aaron de Mey’s hot make–up looks at home, with this must–have make–up collection from Lancôme. The professional make–up kit contains everything you need to show your Christmas sparkle. Available for a limited time only.
Now this is something that I don’t even need to comment, right? I. WANT. IT!

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

There are SO many great value sets with lip glosses and here is one that I personally really want , and it’s the new set from Bobbi Brown which is called Lip Gloss Trio. This set contains three of Bobbi Brown’s favorite glosses and they are just gorgeous!
The shades are:
- Glitter Lip Gloss in Gold (gold with glitter)
- Shimmer Lip Gloss in Kir Sugar (plum brown)
- Lip Gloss in Bright Pink (watermelon pink)
The price is £28/$40 which is a price for 2 glosses which means that you get one gloss for free when you get this set!Read More
Today I am wearing a beautiful lip gloss by Benefit which is called “I’m with the Band” and is described as golden pink shimmer. It’s a very beautiful warm shade as you can see from the photo.
The gloss is quite moisturizing and stays on for several hours, it doesn’t come off completely when you drink or eat (or at least this is how it works for me). It has an amazing fruit scent, smells like peach, mmm.
And what are you wearing on your lips today?Read More
