Laura Mercier Holiday Colour Collections | Christmas 2012

Hi everyone. MERRY CHRISTMAS!! This review might be a bit late since it's already Christmas day but I hope it will still be an interesting read for you. Also, I think that most of the items are still available so you can still pick it up for yourself/ a loved one as a year end treat. (Who says that gift-giving is only for Christmas?)

Laura Mercier released several holiday collections this year. There is a Signature Collection that is the most luxurious and high-end of the releases (LINK). The packaging for the Signature Collection is very luxe and gorgeous but it comes with a hefty price tag too. A Body and Bath Collection was also released with limited edition sets of Laura Mercier's beautiful candles, lotions, hand creams and bath products (LINK). There's also a collection called the "Art Deco Muse Collection"(LINK). The Art Deco Muse Collection has colours that are perfect to create a luxurious festive party look. 

The Holiday Colour Collections is the only one that caught my attention. This part of the collection contains:
  • Glamour Wardrobe- Dual Decker for Eyes, Cheeks & Lips
  • 2 Colour-to-go Portable Palette for Eyes, Cheeks & Lips (Cool Neutrals & Warm Neutrals)
  • 2 Mini Lip Glace Collection (Rich Berries & Soft Nudes)
  • 2 Mini Baked Eye Trio (Smoky Metallics & Golden Metallics)
  • Deluxe Travel Brush Collection
  • Smoky Effects Mini Kohl Eye Pencil Collection
  • Artist's Palette for Eyes (Sephora Exclusive in the US)

Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura | Christmas 2012

Hi everyone. It's 10 days till Christmas~~~ Although Malaysia is not overly Christmas-sy, I am very much looking forward to my family's Christmas dinner. Our dinner last year was a great success so we must come up with something better to top it this year. I am looking at recipes online to get some ideas but if there are any recipes/ dishes that you guys recommend then please let me know in the comments!! 

Also, I still have another 2 Christmas/ holiday collections to review so I will try to step up my game and test the products quickly so that I will hopefully be able to review them all in the next couple of days. *fingers crossed*

Getting back on topic, I will be talking about the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura collection today. You might want to go grab a drink because this post is potentially quite lengthy.

"once upon a time, while the town was being decorated for Christmas with ornaments a small miracle took place in the atelier of Karl Lagerfeld’s castle.“mon shu girl” escaped from his sketchbook - a “dessin” come to life! spreading colorful times and holiday sparkle to girls around the world. mon shu girl dons Karl Lagerfeld’s iconic look and awakens the sleeping beauty that lies deep within. this holiday season, shu uemura and Karl Lagerfeld send a miracle of color and beauty that is a gift for every girl." source

This collection was centered around "Mon Shu Girl", who is dressed in Karl Lagerfeld's iconic white shirt and black tie while wearing Shu Uemura's makeup product. A little random fact, did you know that Karl Lagerfeld uses Shu Uemura's color makeup in his illustrations because he thinks that no other brand in the market offers such beautiful colours?

Dior Grand Bal Collection Review | Christmas 2012

Hi everyone. I am going to review for you one of my personal favourite releases this Christmas/ holiday and it is the Dior Grand Bal Collection. This collection has such an opulent touch to it in terms of the colours and packaging as well as the name: Grand Bal (which literally means Grand Ball in English, obviously). 

This collection contains:
  • The Dior Grand Bal Couture Makeup Palette (Palette Grand Bal Carnet de Maquillage, inspired by the Carnet de Bal which is the dance card that dancers in the past would write down the name of their partners)
  • 4 Diorific Lipsticks (037 Diorling, 038 Diva, 039 Lady & 040 Marilyn for regions outside of Asia. Instead of the 4 red shades, the names are the same in the Asian version with different numbers and colors: 340 Diorling, 520 Diva, 653 Marilyn & 677 Lady) 
  • 4 Vernis Diorific (011 Lady, 207 Diorling, 751 Marilyn & 901 Diva)
  • 2 Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette (524 Night Golds & 764 Fairy Golds)
  • 2 Dior Addict Ultra Gloss (Outside of Asia: 774 Ceremony Red & 424 Lame Gold, Asia: 224 Lame Gold & 774 Ceremony Red)
