Bobbi Brown’s shimmer bricks may one of the most standout products of the line, and I know there is a definite cult following of these compact gems. They’re intended to be used either as a blush as a highlighter on cheeks or even as individual eyeshadows. Who doesn’t love a multitasking compact? Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick comes as part of the Holiday 2007 collection, and it’s adorable with its pink packaging (on the inside), and the shades are gorgeous. It gives you a precious pink glow, just the faintest hint of color, with lots of shimmer. The colors themselves make for great muted holiday looks that are neutral or pink based. $38.00

It’s official — Stacey “Fergie” Ferguson has been recruited by MAC Cosmetics to be their next Viva Glam spokesperson.
FERGIE GETS GLAM: MAC Cosmetics has tapped Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson, the Grammy Award-winning singer, as the next Viva Glam spokeswoman. The deal includes a Viva Glam ad campaign featuring Ferguson, which breaks in February, as well as a new limited edition MAC Viva Glam Lipglass. Since 1994, the MAC Viva Glam campaigns have raised more than $95 million dollars to benefit the MAC AIDS Fund, which supports people living with HIV/AIDS globally.
Love her? Hate her? What do you think of the newest Viva Glam spokesperson?
Overall, the palettes offer a little something for everybody, which I think is their ultimate purpose. MAC addicts are never as impressed with Holiday as the typical makeup consumer, who is far less knowledgeable on what products have come out, and they probably don’t own half the MAC store either (!). Palettes offer consumers a chance to pick up several shadows in an organized palette for $6 an eyeshadow (you know, a good deal!), and they also make excellent gifts for those who are not so beauty-addicted. The brush sets are the same way–take MAC brushes for a test drive without breaking the bank. Brush sets are usually machine-made versus man-made, but they are still quality brushes that are perfect for budget beauty mavens as well as for holiday travel.
