If you didn't get to see the previous post with my favorite collections and products to look out for this holiday check it out here. This list is less about the collection as a whole and more of a few specific products that also caught my eye!


Tarte High Performance Naturals "Blush Bazaar"
Amazon Clay Blush Palette $44 ($150 Value)

The Blush Bazaar Palette is on the top of my items to look out for because of its value. Not only are you getting 10 products in a beauty and compact kit, but its great for the glam on the go traveler and working professional artist that needs variety of shades. Fitted with 8 blushes and 2 highlighters the palette provides a varying ranges of colors that compliment a variety of skin tones. Shop the item here.


Sephora Favorites "Give Me More Lip" Set - $68 ($254 Value)

5 Full Size Lip Products and 9 Miniatures which is great for someone who loves lipsticks but doesn't want to spend $25-$30/shade this set is perfect for you! This is also great for sampling a wide variety of brands at one time without shoveling out the money it takes to purchase 14 individual products. Shop the item here.



Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda - $58 ($336 Value)

This is such an amazing gift item for beauty enthusiasts and professional working artists! This collectors item includes this incredibly cute planner/calendar, 24 shade eye shadow palette and zipper binder carrier case. It also includes a luminizer, a bronzer, a blush, a matte lipstick, and their popular "Better than Sex" mascara. As an added bonus the agenda has 12 tutorials, one for each month, beauty tips and facts from Too Faced Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Jerrod Blandino.

 Stila "Eye For Elegance" Liquid Eye Shadow Set - $45 ($72 Value)

This awesome holiday collection features three existing "Glitter and Glow" shades and 3 ALL NEW "Shimmer and Glow" shades which will be launching in full sizes Spring 2018. Shades include Kitten, Grace, Twig, Peachy Sheen, Smoldering Satin and Next to Notte. These liquid eye shadows can be worn alone or as an eye shadow topper for added shine and blind. This product is great for those who love glitter and chrome lids. Maybe you were hesitant in trying the brand which the full size shadows retail at $28/ea, this will give you a great value alternative that will allow you sample several shades. Shop the item here.


Sephora Collection Puff & Shine Shimmery Body Powder - $13

Dual use can be used as an all over body glow or as a highlighter on the face. I plan to go in store and do a swatch on this  to see how this powder translated on deeper complexions. So stay tuned for an update. Shop this item here.

 M.A.C. Cosmetics and Patrick Starr Holiday Collaboration

Patrick is one of my fav beauty influencer and YouTuber. I cannot express enough how happy I am to hear that he is finally launching his own products. This is not an independent launch, however he is now seated next to collaborators like Selena Quintanilla, Mariah Carey, Aaliyah to name a few.


The products are set to launch in December! The brand has been a little hush hush on the revealing the entire collection, but fret not! I'll be keeping you all posted with updates as the PR rolls out! Stay tuned. UPDATE!!! All of the products have been revealed in the video below! Check out all of the lipsticks, liners, glosses and that incredible setting powder!
