To be honest I bought Lancome Shine lover mainly because of the packaging. I was immediately drawn to this beauty in white and silver.
I've never been very interested in Max Factor's eyeshadows. When I spotted the Smokey eye drama kit in 03 Sumptuous Golds in the blog MakeupSavvy it was love at first sight. I really liked the colours.
I really wanted to try the new Golden rose matte lipstick crayons ever since I first saw them a few months ago in one of the Turkish blogs I follow.
I really like the NYX Butter glosses and I own four shades.
After I saw the photos of Vice 4 online I felt relieved, it looked like I won’t be buying any expensive eyeshadow palettes this Christmas. Then Urban Decay surprised us all with their collaboration with Gwen Stefani.
I quite like the L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks and I’ve used a few of them throughout the years. The collections dedicated to celebrities are my favourite and I always end up buying at least one shade.
Rimmel is a brand that is popular with its lipsticks. When I saw the new The only 1 lipsticks in the drugstore I couldn’t help it and I picked one.
The packaging of the highlighter in the Charlotte Tilbury Christmas range is definitely quite impressive. Bar of gold looks like, well, a bar of gold.
The Maybelline matte lipsticks are finally available in my country. Sadly we got only four shades - 2 reds, a bright magenta colour (I liked this one the most, but I have a lot of similar shades) and a light pink colour (the one I bought).
The Christmas makeup collection that impressed me the most this year was the collaboration between NARS and the photographer Steven Klein. To be honest I wanted everything from it, but I had to restrain myself and got just one product. I chose the single eyeshadow in the shade Stud.
The Maybelline nude eyeshadow palette is finally available in Bulgaria. I was way too curious about it so ended up buying it.
The Charlotte Tilbury mini lipstick charms are a Christmas gift that can melt every girl’s heart. They were so popular last year and now they are back by popular demand.
So I’m done with my Christmas shopping and I got everything I wanted from the Christmas makeup collections. Now I’m totally broke and I have a lot of beauty posts to write before Christmas. My “What I read this month” post for October is late as always, but I’ve read only one book in November so far anyway.
I really wanted to try the all so famous Hourglass Ambient lighting powders, but I was so confused about which one to purchase. When I saw online the promo photos of this palette I was very intrigued and I ended up buying it. It contains 3 powders, two of their popular blushes and a bronzer.
I quite like the taupe cool toned eyeshadows so when I heard that one of my favourite brands Zoeva are releasing a palette with only taupe shades I was very excited. I am impressed with the fact that Zoeva continue to come up with such original palettes.
