The first three are gorgeous, I really don’t like the last one in the close up at all. Yardena – they’re going to be £30 ($60) each in the UK, I assume a lot less in the states as usual.
Fab packaging, red is my favourite colour – yay 😀

OMG Satin Taupe again?! Haha. And didn’t they just have a Starflash called Grand Entrance that’s a frosty light pinkish color, or am I crazy? And now they have one that’s green with the same name? Strange…

Looks like they did a good job with the new colors though. I’m with Tanya in that I never buy palettes, but they’re pretty. Maybe just one 🙂

Thank goodness I wasn’t the only one that noticed the Grand Entrance double-naming. I don’t know if that should be considered very sloppy or just lame.

It’s going to be hard to pick what one to get out of these. I don’t have any of the colors exceot Carbon & Satiin Taupe and I can always use dupes of them!

Maybe the warm or smokey eyes… For some reason the holiday eye palettes never call to me. I reason I must like all of the colours to make it a good purchase and it’s difficult for me to find a palette of 6 that I like all of the colours… one day!

Other than the Classic Eyes, these palettes just seem like variations of holiday palettes they’ve had in previous years…big yawn. I do like the packaging though.
