3rd: Aube Couture
Aube Couture’s holiday 2012 makeup collection includes four variations of Designing Jewel Compact, with colors for eyes and lips. Each of the four variations comes in two cases, so there are technically eight palettes to choose from. I like 01 Gold Brown Set and I prefer the design of the black case.
2nd: Paul & Joe
Paul & Joe’s holiday 2012 makeup collection finishes off the brand’s 10th anniversary celebration beautifully. The Makeup Collection 2012 sets feature a loose powder with a flattering chiffon-matte finish, and Pearl Foundation Primer is one of the most eye-catching items from the brand. The look of the Eye Color & Lip Balm Set (above) is gorgeously festive.
Ayura’s holiday 2012 makeup collection is one of the best holiday collections from the brand. The Glossoming Dress Coffret (above) includes one of my favorite fragrances, Spirit of Ayura, and two limited-edition extensions of the fragrance (exclusive to the set), Solid Perfume and Aroma Hair Mist.
The brand’s Meditation range also features a superbly-crafted soothing scent, and the Meditation Time set also includes two limited-edition items exclusive to the set, Meditation Parfum and Meditation Nail Essence. I am glad that Meditation Body Balm is available separately from the set and not a limited-edition item.
