‘Give it or Get it’ holiday makeup picks: no.1

22Dec10

Besides mistletoe, eggnog, Rudolf & tinsel . . . the holidays are also the perfect time of year for new makeup.  Why?  Well all the cosmetic companies flip out between Thanksgiving & New Years, offering sales, limited edition product, and value sets.  If makeup wasn’t on your list to Santa, and you’ve finished checking everyone off your list, then this is the perfect opportunity to snag a little something for yourself.  Happy shopping & merry merry!

Stila “The Perfect First Date” Set

Who’s it for?

If you’ve ever worried about what color goes where on your eyes, how to pick a lip and cheek color that go together, or what gloss to pair with your smoky eye, this gift is for you. (Ignore the whole “first date” thing.  No idea why it’s called that.)

What’s in it?

The $34 ($112 value) set includes:
– Smoky Eye – a Talking Palette
– Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar (full size)
– Mini Kajal Eye Liner in Smoky Quartz
– Cheek color pan in Heat
– Gold clutch

What do I do with it?

I don’t even really need to give you instruction here because . . .  the compact talks to you.  That’s right: the smoky eye palette gives you instructions as to where to apply each color.  Then use the Kajal liner on the inner rim of your eyes to complete the smolder, brush a little Heat on your cheeks, and gloss up your lips with the Brown Sugar Lip Glaze.  It’s a smoky eye & nude lip made easy;  no guessing, no decisions.

Pro Tip

If you want to get more use out of your shadow palette, remember that you don’t have to apply the shadows as instructed.  You can apply the highlight shade all over with the lid color in the crease.  Or put the highlight on the lid and crease color in the outer corner.  Combinations are endless.

Oh, and the gold clutch isn’t pictured, but I’ve seen it and its super cute.  Just sayin’.

What do you think?  Have you mastered the smoky eye?  If not, would a talking kit help you?  Do you know the perfect person to get this for?  Or is that person you?  Let me know your thoughts. . .
