Hi everyone, Today I am going to be doing another review on makeup products. This time I am going to be reviewing the 2016 holiday set. I think you might still be able to find it in some places so if you are really interested and look far enough you will be able to get it.
When I bought it it was around £38 (I think) and it comes with three eyeshadow palettes and a mini “Better than sex” mascara. If you have read my over-rated products you will know that I was quite disappointed in the mini mascara because I find it quite dry and it applies really badly.
The set comes with three palettes which have 6 eyeshadows and a blush/ bronzer. All of the palettes are scented to the theme of the palette and as they are from the holiday collection they all have holiday themed scents. They are called “Eggnog Latte” “Peppermint Mocha” “Gingerbread Cookie”.
This palette smells like eggnog and it is such a nice festive scent, it has a really beautiful packaging, it is a tea green and it has gold detailing with pink ornaments on the front. The inside has 6 eyeshadows and a blush. The eyeshadows all have quite festive names, which you can see in the pictures below. The colours in this palette are quite natural with a mix of matte and shimmers. I really like them all except the green. The blush is very natural as well and it is a pastel pink/ orange colour. All of the formulas are really nice and blend out so well.
This palette smells really nice, like peppermint. The packaging on this is pink with the old detailing and candy canes and sweets. The inside also has 6 eye shadows and a blush. The shades are quite natural and there are two pinks which are really pretty and work well with the colour scheme of the palette. The pink is a brighter pink which I would probably not sway to because I’m not really a blush person and it is quite bright but it is also very beautiful. The colours are all very pigmented and they blend out really well.
This palette smells like gingerbread and it is really festive and subtle. The packaging is quite dark compared to the others as it is a dark brown background with the gold detailing and a gingerbread and some other cookies on it which make it a bit brighter. It has 6 eyeshadows and a bronzer. The colours of the eyeshadows are mainly dark with golds and browns and a black. They are really good for creating a smokey eye and they are very bendable. The bronzer is really beautiful because it is quite light and it is very bendable so you can decide how much you want to put on rather than just having too much or too little.
Overall I really like this set and think that it is very beautiful and these are some of my favourite palettes which I use very frequently.
