One exciting launch that is now available online and in stores is the The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Star Clash Edition Lipsticks for Holiday 2016. Dressed up for the holidays in sparkly gold packaging and embossed with stars, this holiday collection instantly captivated my attention since I am a huge fan of the YSL lipstick formula. This year’s limited edition collection includes 6 shades and today I have two to share with you.

Marc Jacobs Beauty’s limited edition Style Eye Con No. 20 About Last Night has finally arrived and this one is a stunner. After seeing images of it surface online, I knew I had to have it. I placed an order through Sephora.com and I literally could not wait to unbox this palette when it arrived at my doorstep. Today I’ll be sharing images, product details, and swatches. Featuring 20 shades in a range of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes, this palette surely has a wide range to colors to create looks for both day and night.

So I’m not really a lip tint kind of gal. I prefer to wear colors in richly pigmented shades and I’ll admit I’m definitely partial to matte, opaque shades over sheer, translucent ones. Recently, as I was sorting and organizing my makeup stash which is routinely customary for makeup junkies like myself, I rediscovered my YSL Volupte Tint-in Oil ($32) in one of my Muji drawers. I was gifted the YSL Care and Shine Set in late October last year as a birthday gift. Sometimes I think we get so caught up and focused on buying new products and seeing what’s new that we tend to forget or neglect the items that we already have. I’ll admit I am totally and utterly guilty of this. The set includes three of their best sellers, two of which are the Volupte Tint-in Oil and one Volupte Lip Gloss in Rose Jersey, number 2o2 (not pictured) I decided to give it another try last weekend and I was delightfully pleased with it. I think the Tint-in-Oil will be perfect for the transition from winter into Spring.
