Clarins’ Palazzo d’Oro Collection: Gold Attraction Face Palette
Clarins Gold Attraction Face Palette ($57.00) is an elegant holiday highlighter from Clarins’ Palazzo d’Oro Collection.
It’s a particularly pretty to look at with the texture and design of the palette itself, and the overall shimmer and shade of it is quite lovely, too. It swatches as a shimmery, sunny yellow gold with just a little peachiness to it. It’s shimmery, has a golden sheen, and it does warm up the complexion (but not in a bronzy way, as Lancome’s Sparkling Cherub does).
I would say it can run a little too shimmery, so if you’re more of a subtle-barely-there kind of gal, this might not make the best highlighter for your face. (For your body? Oh, yeah, dust this on your decolletage for some va-voom!) I don’t mind using it as a face highlighter, though, and if you use a stippling brush (like MAC’s 187), you can get a more toned-down look than if you used a denser blush brush.
Bottom Line: It’s certainly not a must-have highlighter at $57 (which is a little spend-y), but it is an item that is worth a look at and perhaps purchased as a splurge during the holiday season. The packaging is particularly luxe (has some heft to it), with a brilliant faux gold finish.

Lipstick Queen 15 Minutes of Fame Pop Art Gloss
The Scarlet Season: Lipstick Queen 15 Minutes of Fame Pop Art Gloss
Lipstick Queen 15 Minutes of Fame Pop Art Gloss ($16.50 for 1.45ml/0.05 oz.) is a semi-opaque medium-deep red with more of a cool-tone to it. Pop Art Glosses are non-sticky, shimmer-free, and they feel lightweight on the lips. The formula is hydrating and wears well and goes on pretty even. The gloss applicator is a twist-up brush-type, so that may or may not be your cup of tea. I like the color, which is a semi-opaque shade of red that’s deep enough to be bold, but not bright enough to be too much.
What about you? Would you wear this red?
