Instead of doing a post on my favourite Christmas gifts, I thought I would write about my favourite Christmas Collections. At Christmas, premium makeup brands launch the most incredible limited edition collections and it’s a great time to grab a beautiful palette or compact for yourself or a present for someone special. This year, two collections have stole the show and I just love them.
Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood
I don’t need to say how much I love Bobbi Brown but I would love this collection even if it wasn’t from Bobbi Brown. The theme is Old Hollywood, which immediately appeals to me. I love anything which vintage inspired or reminiscent of Hollywood film stars. For me the star of the collection is the Eye Palette, it has nine really lovely but wearable shades and the quality of Bobbi Brown shadows is really good. There is also a proper, Hollywood red lipstick in glamorous gold packaging. There are also four lip glosses, one red gloss which is perfect for someone who is a little scared for red lipstick and three lovely shimmer glosses. As part of the collection there are four nail polishes, two which are gold toned shimmers which are perfect for the Christmas season. I think this is a really lovely Collection and I don’t think anyone would be disappointed to get this on Christmas Day.
Dior Golden Winter
The inspiration behind Dior’s Christmas collection is Christmas at Versailles so you can expect a beautifully opulent array of products. For me the star of the collection is the nail polishes, not just because the colours are gorgeous and bottles could easily double up as an interior design item but the brush on Dior polishes make painting nails really quick and easy and the formula never chips. There is also a lovely eyeshadow palette and some amazing lipsticks. If you haven’t seen the Dior collection, I really recommend you go to a counter and just absorbs the beautifulness of the products.
