3rd: Paul & Joe

Again, Paul & Joe brings us a dazzling collection for the holiday season. The holiday 2011 collection includes items for face, eyes, lips, body, and nails. The five Ornamental Self Select Eye Colors and  the five Nail Enamels feature matching colors. (Read my review of Ornamental Self Select Eye Colors in 001 & 004. )


2nd: Magie Deco

Magie Deco’s holiday 2011 Coffret V Princess Jewel looks adorable. The Shadow Brilliance palette contains wearable soft shimmery neutrals great for both everyday as well as glamorous parties, and the warm-toned Cheek Color complements the eyeshadows. The Multi Face Color reveals itself from a ring box, and the retractable Face Brush adds the finishing touch. All these treats come out of a fairytale storybook.


1st: Lunasol

Lunasol’s holiday 2011 Tender Glow makeup collection features Party Coffret 2011, the annual holiday makeup set that many Lunasol fans look forward to. In terms of the items included in the holiday coffrets, the 2011 edition is one of my favorites. I would use all the items in the set, whereas many of the previous versions contain a liquid eyeliner or a nail color (or both), which I probably wouldn’t use very much. (See Lunasol’s Party Coffrets for 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.)

The rest of the collection includes single items for lips and nails as well as a very pretty Modeling Cheeks in EX03 Coral Pink Red (below). Overall this is a very stunning collection.

Hi PJ!

I really enjoy and appreciate the seasonal round-up you prepare on makeup collections : ) Truly, Lunasol produced their best collection yet this year!

Merry Christmas!

Hi Strawbit,

I am very pleased that you enjoyed this round-up. Lunasol’s holiday 2011 collection is undoubtedly my favorite collection of this holiday season!

Thank you for your comment again, and merry Christmas to you too! :)

Merry Christmas! (^____^)

I got the Ornamental Collection in #02 Noel and while I like it, the eye gloss is veeeery glittery and a bit hard to pull off when it’s not Christmas (or a night in a club).

Hi Julia,

Merry Christmas to you too! :)

I tested both sets at a Paul & Joe counter, and I do prefer 02 Noel (as I prefer the cream beige to the silver). But, indeed, the two eye glosses seem very seasonal. I still hope you get to enjoy yours from time to time!

Thank you for stopping by again! :)
