I love the design....it is so pretty!!!

Have never seen such a lovely design for a holiday collection before.

 

It is great to see crushed metallic pigments and dazzleglass/cremesheen glass sets again!

I like the look of the green/brown and purple palettes, the green pressed pigments and the purple lipglasses! Can you tell what my favourite colours are? ;)

 

The packaging is ok, I suppose. I don't care too much for pastels or bows but the leopard print is fun in a tacky kind of way.

I dislike the packaging of eyeshadows palettes holysheep.gif
But I really love the round box packaging of pigments (crushed metallic ones?) and lipgloss!!! And Mint green is actually one of my favorite colors!!!!!!!!! I also like the leopard makeup bags with lip stuff!!

Did you see all the other palettes and sets in the link I posted? One palette also has two l/s shades in them and I think a beauty powder. And I'm pretty sure there will be a whole collection of single itmes like every year as well.

Yes. Just did. Sorry. I'm having one of "those" morning. I needNeedCoffee.gif I am loving everything. OMG I am going to be so broke.mac_atemywallet.gif

I usually I skip the Holiday collections because they usually don't appeal to me. I've not bought from a Holiday collection since 5 Haute High Jinks. I can't remember the collection but that was the item that I bought. I twas a warm pigment/glitter set. Looks that that's all about to change.I'm really digging the packaging and the purple palette has already started softly calling my name. The green crushed metal pigment set (?) is making me want to give that formula another go. Looking forward to this!

post #12 of 7768

Looks like I'll be making purchases from the Holiday collection :)

Most of the times, I pass on the sets, but they are usually good value.

post #14 of 7768

Hm...I really don't like bulky palettes with that waste space (inside or out). Just makes them bigger than they need to be. That's one of the reasons I like MAC and NARS blushes and not some of the other brands that have big containers with a small useless brush.

 

I like the animal print bags - they look like a great gift item. I do like bundled CSGs though - great value for them.

I will def focus on the single items as well. Whatever blushes or beautypowders there may be, I'll get them for sure. And I'm sure there'll be a l/s I like.

I wish there was a nail polish set as well, I loved the one from last year. Maybe there will be some nice full size ones in the color collection. I'm still hoping for something similar to the mint one from Rodarte: MAC - Delfin | Flickr - Fotosharing!

It was so pretty and it certainly would be a good fit for this collection.

 

I really want to know what kind of powders the ones in the palettes are. Google translation tells me it's a ''suction honey powder''. huh2.gif

post #16 of 7768

Those palettes are cute, but if that is cloth versus plastic, they will get scads of makeup goo on them from my vanity.  Wondering why the eyeshadows are oblong instead of square?  I fear and loath change

post #17 of 7768

Me too....BPs in a lovely special packaging would awesome!

Hmm this is really the collection lol?! 

post #19 of 7768

So disappointed that they keep releasing those damn crushed metal pigments, they are so horrible to try to work with and hurt my eyes badly.  I really was hoping for mini pigment sets, I miss those.  So far going by those pics, I'm only interested in getting 1 of the Dazzleglass/Cremesheen Glass sets.  Hopefully they have some pretty stuff in the color collection (hoping for new pigments and new colors of Pearlglides)

Skip, skip, skip.

 

A Marilyn l/s and nothing until January then!

 

Fine with me!

I don't know anything about this, but I already know I don't like it. lmao.gif

post #23 of 7768

If this is indeed the holiday collection, my haul will be small. Just the lippies! I need items that can be easily stored in my limited space. 

post #24 of 7768

I love the packaging on this! I've never purchased any of the sets before, but I think I might pick up the one with the little powder and lipstick inside. I also wish the brush sets usually weren't such inferior quality to the full-sizes, because that mint green one is adorable! If it's not too bad, I'll probably get it anyway for traveling so I don't have to worry about losing my brushes.

post #25 of 7768
If that really is the packaging.. I'm finding it way less horrible than I thought it would be! I will never buy sets though that contain eyeshadow and creme products in the same palette.. So that's a skip.. But I'm digging most of the stuff. I was seriously thinking Austin Powers like packaging.... Lol

Richelle, you aren't a fan of the packaging?

I am, it just wasn't what I expected.

post #28 of 7768

At least the packaging looks handier than last year's globes - those things were impossible to open and just bulky, non-stackable, etc.

 

I've been waiting for blue-greens like Birds & Berries (which I sadly skipped at the time) to come back. I love the Crushed Metals, so that green set is a definite yes!

I am DOOMED!!!

My wallet weeps for me LOL!  I wonder they are going to introduce a new shade of the Extra Dimension shinfinishes?  The blush in the middle and the bright pink lippie are calling my name...
