It`s October, which for most people means the beginning of Fall, but in makeup-land, it signals the beginning of Christmas! This is the time when cosmetics brands start releasing their holiday exclusive sets and value kits, which is especially fun considering that most of them come with an opportunity to try an assortment of products at a fraction of their original prices.
I especially like value sets that allow me to try a lot of shades of a kind of product that I love, but couldn`t necessarily justify buying a full-sized product. This is often true simply due to the sheer amount of makeup that I have and love--it is simply too hard to finish a full sized product! So when I came across this Laura Mercier Matte to Metal Caviar Stick set the last time I was in Nordstrom, I couldn`t resist!
I already own a full size caviar stick in the shade Moonlight, which is a beautiful shade that I wear all the time. These eyeshadow pencils have the most beautiful shades and finished, from matte to satin to metallic, and they blend and apply effortlessly. All of the shades in this set are gorgeous, and the two matte ones are brand new! The shades include existing shades Amethyst, Khaki, Sugar Frost, and Rose Gold, as well as new matte shades Aubergine and Ganache. I cannot wait to use them all!
This set is exclusive to Nordstrom (and http://nordstrom.com, which has free shipping on all orders), and cost $59 USD, which is a good value considering the price of a full sized pencil. I had a $20 Nordstrom note through their Fashion Rewards program that sweetened the deal!
What holiday sets do you have your eye on this year? I want so many, I really have to restrain myself this year!
