Victoria’s Secret Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection Quick Review

This year, Victoria’s Secret brings us yet another gorgeous limited-edition Holiday Collection with earthy tones for the eyes and cheeks and bold, rich colors for the lips.

Victoria's Secret Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection

Deluxe Eye Palette in Masquerade (Cool) and Slow Deduction (Warm)($26)
Housed in the cutest cases, these two eyeshadow palettes come in a set of 5 cool and warm colors. The colors are a little lighter in person than the pictures below and they swatched smoothly with decent pigmentation.

Luminous Face Powder Gems in Moonlight ($22)
VS is at it with the balls! Due to a delay in manufacturing, I didn’t get to see it in person but if it is anything like the one from the Heidi Klum Holiday 2009 Collection, I am sure it will rock just like my favorite Guerlain Meteorites.

Color Lust Lip Lacquer ($14)
Available in three gorgeous colors – Daring (hot pink), Red Hot (red) and Risky (pink) – these give a “vinyl finish that drenches lips in rich color and mirror-like shine”. Love the colors and cute packaging, especially the tassels.
