2011 Holiday Beauty Gift Idea!
If you're just starting to make your holiday gift wish lists and looking around for others, Lancome's Holiday 2011 Color Collection by Kate Winslet is going to hit a home run! There's something for everyone, from $15-40.
The Poudre Lumiere in Golden Hat (shown left) is a soft, pretty, illuminating powder in the shape of a hat. The hat is the logo for Kate Winslet's Golden Hat Foundation, a non-profit created by Winslet to raise funds for autistic children.
The shimmery gold color of the hat is very pretty to use on the cheekbones and highlight eyelids, and the surrounding pink powder is perfect to add a touch of shimmer to cheeks. (Yes, I know it's so pretty, some of you will be loath to actually use it, but it really is great makeup!)
The L'Absolu Rouge Lipcolor has a rich, satiny feel, great staying power and it's the perfect "power red" for day or night. It's a slightly pinky red that looks great on most skin-tones and is also moisturizing with a nice sheen finish. The beautiful hat detail looks so pretty on the case too...don't you think?
The Mini Le Vernis is a very similar pinky red and the formula is creamy, and easy to apply with no streaking. It has a beautiful glossy finish and this is perfect for holiday party manicures and pedicures. - RLB
