Currently Coveting Vol. 3, Holiday Edition

Tis the season! And with that season comes so many holiday and limited edition goodies I’ve been lusting after.

To jump right in, the most beautiful-looking piece of gorgeousness on my list is the Cle de Peau Bal Masque Makeup Coffret ($210.00)! It’s pricey, as all Cle de Peau items tend to be, but I love everything about this set from the mask on the cover of the palette (can’t stop staring at it!) to the beautiful crimson lipstick!

An ornate limited edition makeup coffret for signature radiance and luxurious color inspired by the magical, opulence of a glamorous Venetian Masquerade ball. Includes an eye color quad palette of luxurious metallic shades, perfect lash mascara in a deep, glossy bordeaux, and extra rich lipstick in an intense crimson.

As my recent rendezvous with Nails Inc Gel Effect nail polish has turned me into a fan, it’s only natural that I really want the Nails Inc Be Gelous Gel Effect holiday set I found at Saks for $30.00. They are minis (which I love because who runs out of nail polish?) and you get six colors. I’m hoping the brush size hasn’t been compromised with these and that these are just as gorgeous and consistent as Primrose Hill Lane.

Nails inc Gel Effect polish promises a plumped, high-shine finish, with no need for a UV lamp. This collection contains six stunning trend shades. It contains plasticizer technology to help create a flawless, ultra glossy finish that has previously only been obtained through a gel manicure service. The metallic red of The Boltons, the dark aubergine of Grosvenor Crescent, the glossy violet of Old Bond Street, the chic mauve of New Oxford Street, the winter pink of Uptown and the multi coloured glitter of Picadilly Place were inspired by the Fall runway shades.  

If you follow me on instagram, you already know that I’m lusting after the Nars X Steven Klein Dual Intensity blush duo in Vengeful and you already know why! See pic of the swatch below!

Dual-Intensity Blush defies genre with a silky, wet/dry formula of unprecedented artistry. It features the brand’s exclusive Translucent Pigment Technology, which contains pearls and pigments perfectly suspended in a transparent soft base to allow for multidimensional effects with a uniquely weightless texture. Shades include: White Gold Highlight, Shimmering Brick Red

So freaking pretty! This is a dry swatch so imagine how it looks wet! 

I was up to Sephora Shenanigans the other day and decided to stroll past their brand collection. I am familiar with their cream lip stain but it didn’t tickle my fancy enough to just go and but it until I came across the color Blackberry Sorbet. The color is a deep burgundy and it leaves behind a stain; none of the others I swatched did so. At $14, can’t go wrong here, plus the color is definitely in season. As I am venturing into darker lip colors, I’m always looking for something that won’t look too aggressive on me and also versatile enough that I could wear to work and it won’t be off-putting.

On the same trip, I was on my way out the store and noticed  the Sephora Color Wonderland Palette ($59.00)! What struck me was that it is all neutrals on one side and vivids on the other! 

What it is: A collection of 78 eye shadows and two eye pencils in one luxurious palette. 
What it does: This comprehensive palette offers two different color stories. Neutrals on the left and vibrant shades on the right can be combined to create endless looks. The eye shadows you use most are in a larger size so they last longer, and the palette features a variety of iridescent and matte finishes for custom looks. 
This set contains: – 64 x 0.024 oz Eyeshadows – 12 x 0.052 oz Eyeshadows – 0.013 oz Base Powder – 0.13 oz Highlighter – 2 x 0.039 oz Eye Pencil – Double-ended brush

I haven’t purchased a Sephora Collection palette in a long time and this one seems to be right up my alley. It comes with a full size double-ended eyeshadow brush and a full size eyeliner. I thought they were all shadows but there is a highlighter and a powder in there as well. 

Finally, there’s the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette I found on SpaceNK’s website. I have been wanting to try their products for some time, especially their brushes, but they never seemed to be offered in the states. The palette looks gorgeous, but it’s listed for $32.00, almost twice the price it usually sells for which is 17 euros. Don’t like that at all. 

I wish I could say that’s all that on my list, but there are so many good things out, I’ll have to save that for my holiday wish list!

What are you coveting?
