Party Shimmer Brick - A lustrous shimmer brick featuring stunning silver and gold shades to brighten and highlight your face for a sexy party glow.
Onyx & Silver Eye pain palette - I love this palette for its combination of densely pigmented shades that can be worn wet or dry for a variety of smouldering looks. The metallic powders, translucent oils and polymers also deliver a lustrous, highly-reflective finish for the most glamorous eyes around.
For full-on party nails get your beauty mitts on Illamasqua’s latest nail polish duos. Boosh (Illamsqua’s best-selling black gloss) is paired with Spartan (a clear based gold glitter varnish) whilst Ruthless (an opulent and vibrant red) is teamed with Untold (a clear based red glitter varnish). With nails like these you’re sure to get noticed.

If you want a sexy snow queen look this winter then opt fpr Mac’s Ice & Glitter collection featuring wearable shades of cool pinks, neutrals, plums, blues and greens. The touches of sparkle makes your face glisten with a subtle, glam shimmer.
YSL – Le Smoking Look Noel
The new Holiday Collection is inspired by classic elements of the runway and in particular one of Yves Saint Laurent’s most famous design creations – “Le Smoking” tuxedo jacket.
This uber luxurious makeup collection offers an array of products in blacks, whites, silvers and golds. My ultimate heroes includes:
Touche Eclat ‘Le Smoking’ Collectors Edition – check out the limited edition design, it’s super sleek.
The White Tuxedo Palette features a shimmering silver, pink and violet shade that creates a stunning party glow.
Black Tuxedo Eyeshadow Palette - Open the palette to reveal 5 colours – 4 variations of black and a shimmering white in the middle. Experiment with the deepest darkest shades and add touches of white to create a smouldering party look.
Manicure Couture Nail Polish Duo – Create graphic nails with nail polishes in the darkest of blacks – one matte and one glossy. The look is ultra sophisticated with a highly glamorous finish.
Ombres duo Lumineres Eyeshadow Duo - Offers two complementing shades. The light one can be worn alone or as a base whilst the deep shadow creates depth, contour and intensity.
Dior Rouges or Collection Christmas 2011
I absolutely adore the new Dior collection that will be available at the end of October.
Packed with lust-worthy luxuries the collection is dreamy, magical and extravagant. The Rouge Dior lipsticks for example have been infused with a golden powder that melts onto the lips to reveal the high pigmentation of the limited edition shades. And, for those addicted to the purest, most daring gold, Dior has created a gold lipstick that is truly precious. Dior Vernis nail polishes in cult shades are also injected with a golden powder that helps to intensify the colour, shine and depth for the perfect finishing touches. Plus, keeping with the gold theme, Dior has created a pure gold polish that should be on top of every girl’s wishlist.
‘Save the date’, this collection is available online and in store from 31 October and I’m predicting it will sell out fast.
If you’re still not quite convinced on the forthcoming offerings, you can find all your old faithful and go-to brands in our beauty department. Whilst shopping around for yourself, why not share the joys of makeup with someone close to you by treating them to one of our fabulous beauty gift sets, and feel great about feeling great.
