Temptalia Asks You


What holiday collection are you most looking forward to? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerDior’s, I would have to say, just because the packaging was rather different than other collections.

    Well, already 4 of them : Chanel, Dior, M.A.C to a letter extent and Nars Andy Warhol to a lesser extend too. OPI James Bond collection, I really love this collection. So maybe Chanel, it’s very pretty once again, even more than the 2011 Scintillantes.

    Hard to pick one. Anastasia, Tarte, Shu Uemura!

    Tarte, they always have great holiday sets that are great values.

  4. Interestingly enough, the only one I have on my definite list is UD for the pencils, which I have already ordered, and probably one of the palettes which I am waffling between Fun, Smoked and Vice. As for the rest, so far no single collection really has WOW factor for me other than a couple of items such as the Dior nail enamels (hopefully the other colours are better formulas..fingers crossed), Guerlain Meteorites and maybe the Joues Contraste from Chanel if it isn’t too similar to Narcisse.

    It´s not easy to say, Guerlain, UD, Mac, they all have stuff which i think i need. It´s hard to resist, because i really don´t need. I have so many things which are pretty but i never use, ore just use one time so i thing i should use what i have and really only buy things wich are not similar to things which i have.

  6. I’d say Guerlain, but I’m pretty excited to pick up some shades from meow Cosmetics’ seasonal collections! They return every year but they’re just too hard to resist. ;_;

  7. Guerlain (as always), Chanel, Dior and Mac Glamour Daze. :)

    Actually none :O

    I’m usually so excited about the holiday collections, but this year I haven’t found any must-have products. I think it might be because I have so much makeup now, everything seems similar to what I already have. The only thing I’ve been considering so far is the liner set from Urban Decay. Mostly because it seems like a great value, and I don’t have that many eye liners.

      I feel the same. I *was* looking forward to NARS/Warhol, but that was such a huge disappointment. The UD pencil set would be an amazing deal, if only they worked for me (NARS pencils work fine for me, as does pretty much any other, but UD disappears within an hour).

  9. Same here. Dior has had an amazing year and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s going to be another good one!

    Dior as well. I want all the palettes that are being released!

    Guerlain Holiday 2012! I NEED that eyeshadow quad.

  12. Jessie

    Dior! Speaking of which, Christine, will you be reviewing the entire collection? I’m mostly looking forward to the Diva nail polish and Marylin lipstick – will you be reviewing those? Your sneak peeks already have me super excited!!

  13. Caroline

    Bobbi Brown’s – I love the look of her Rich Caviar palette !!

  14. Avatar of Joanna Joanna

    Guerlain! So excited to see the items in person.

  15. Avatar of Leigh Janna

    Dior and Chanel, as usual. And Guerlain.

  16. I always love at least a couple colors from OPI’s holiday collections. I’m also excited for MAC this year too!

    Burberry, of course. Also I’m curious about some of the products in Dior and Guerlain, and we haven’t seen promos for Chanel yet, so that’s all on my radar. And I just saw information for Tarte’s holiday sets and htere are about three or four of THOSE I want. So…everything? :P

      If you love shades of gold, berry, mauve and taupe, you’ll like Chanel’s color palette for Holiday 2012. It’s stunning. If you stop by a Chanel counter, you can ask to see the promo and product pictures that are in their collection binder.

  18. Kathleen

    Dior! I’m totally worried that we won’t be getting the full collection, though (like the golden savannah crocodile effects polish!) because my Macy’s Dior Counter Manager showed me her release notes and I didn’t see everything I’d seen here.
    I’ve already gotten the Ocho Loco set and I’m planning on getting the Vice Palette.

  19. Avatar of T Violet Lee

    What I’ve seen of MAC’s Glamour Daze has me really interested, first MAC collection I’ve looked forward to in a while.

  20. Avatar of Laura LauraR.

    Urban Decay for the most part. I got the Fun & Feminine palettes already, and my Vice palette is in the mail. I haven’t seen a lot else that makes me feel like I can’t miss out. Still debating the Smoked palette. Possibly one of the new BE ready eyeshadow palettes (The Finer Things or The Star Treatment) but I’ll have to see it in person first (unlike the Vice palette, which I bought immediately after seeing the swatches).

  21. Eileen

    Guerlain! Chanel! Both collections are elegant, sophisticated, and festive. If the quality of the products lives up to their chic look, I know I’ll be spending a bundle this October :-)

  22. Suselew

    I have already purchased the UD eyeliner collection and just ordered three of the Tarte Holiday sets.

  23. I’m hoping the MAC stuff gets good reviews because the packaging is so beautiful, also looking forward to the tarte lip surgence set and the blushes.

  24. Avatar of Beckie Beckie

    Guerlain I’m definitely getting the pressed powder. so gorgeous. it will go perfectly with my other meteorites voyage pressed powder in mythic 01.

  25. I read some comments regarding the Tarte 2012 Holiday offerings and the Carried Away collector’s set is really lovely!

  26. Monica

    The only item that has caught my fancy are the meteorites by Guerlain, O-M-G!!!
    But other than that I haven’t really checked out upcoming holiday collections, we are just finishing up with summer for god sakes

  27. Ivana

    Guerlain! Im so getting the plummy gold quad. And maybe the Dragon Pearls.

    Then maybe I am thinking about the Chanel quad.
    Other thatn that I did not see nothing else interesting.

    But I haven’t see promos from Armani, Burberry, LMdB and Tom Ford yet.

    If Burberry will finally bring their promised eye quads that will change everything because there are at least 2 palettes I want.

  28. Tigress

    Already bought UD’s Vice palette, now the Tarte sets are on my radar.

  29. beachgal

    Looking forward to the holiday polish collections…hoping the OPI Skywalker due out Oct will be cool.

  30. Really looking forward to Urban Decays!

  31. Avatar of Natasha Zappa-sha

    guerlain (reliably as ever) and givenchy!

  32. Guerlain. But it might because I’m a sucker for anything dragon themed (since I was born in the year of the dragon and it is the year of the dragon). Plus, that palette just looks gorgeous, as do the perles.

  33. Vanessa

    I’m looking for a Too Faced palette and maybe if MAC comes out with some interesting pigments

  34. Avatar of lulu lulu

  35. Avatar of Terri Terri

    Guerlain!!! And also Chanel and Dior, but mostly Guerlain….counting the days.

    Burberry… if they’ll have one lol
