Your skin tone/coloring: Medium, Warm (NC25, NARS Punjab)
Favorite holiday palette? Probably the Charlotte Tilburry Fallen Angel (LOOOVE) and the NARS Guy Bourdin Cheek Palette from last year. I get so much use out of those two!
Favorite holiday set? Definitely the MAC Holiday lipglass sets. I always stock up for the year!
Favorite holiday limited edition shade/product? I’m really scared to run out of NARS Corsica lipgloss(my perfect MLBB gloss), MAC Seduced at Sea blush (goes with everything!), and Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace!!! That is my PERFECT red. I will bawl when I run out.

Estefania, I’m with you on the NARS Guy Bourdin Cheek Palette! I almost use it every single day since I got it at the end of last year. And it’s very travel friendly in my opinion.

I am blonde fair skinned (I wear light1 for Nars tinted moisturizer) my favourite holiday palette this year was the Tarte blush palette or the Nars domination cheek palette. I was super impressed by the sephora give me more lip set and the Nars digital lip coffret! As for favourite LE shades, I like it when companies stray from the classic red lips gold eyes, a darker more berry lipstick always makes me swoon haha.

Skin fair
palette- Lorac Mega Pro… although obtaining it was a hot mess
holiday set- Urban Decay Naked on the Run (is it a set? is it a palette? I think it’s both)
holiday limited- I’ve been loving the deeper reds/cranberries people are wearing this year (i.e.: Bite Tanning; Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense 48); I mean plum and red are always popular but this is a happy medium and looks gorgeous on most people. 🙂

Since I'm not much of a palette person I only bought the one, the Smashbox On the Rocks palette, and I'm really liking it. The quality of the eyeshadows is very good and I love the colour selection!

Favorite holiday set?
Again, I only bought the one and I grudged paying what I did but I'm definitely warming to it. It's the Estée Lauder set of four miniature Pure Color Envy lipsticks. There's a lovely variety of shades and it comes with a cute little bag. It's a lovely lipstick formula.

Without question it has to be the Guerlain Rouge G in Rouge Parade. My perfect red. Shame it's limited edition. I'll need to use it sparingly even though I want to wear it all the time!

I dunno, maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never really been big on pallettes. I generally like to pick out individual colors from whatever brands I want. I know everybody has pallettes these days but I usually stick to single colors when I’m buying something.
