Christmas is just around the corner!!
One of the reasons why I really look forward to Christmas is for the gift sets! I'm pretty sure you've practically memorised (and fiddled with) every makeup item available at your beauty counter, Christmas specials will always breathes in a fresh breath of air into your beauty shopping.
While browsing David Jones a few weeks ago, I noticed a huge box of makeup from Elizabeth Arden going for AU$99 - the Elizabeth Arden Red Hot Croc Color Collection. It's practically a complete makeup set, minus the foundation! It was a hugeee steal and I was confident that my mom would love it.
I dragged my mom to David Jones a few days later and she instantly fell in love with the set. Lol. After much time contemplation, my mom longingly decided she didn't need it but she talked about the set for days. You know what that means.
Fast forward a week, I saw the set going for AU$79. I HAD TO HAVE IT!! I knew my mom was going to love her surprise!
The palette was gorgeous and I thought every colour was very wearable. Even if you're one to shy away from colours, there are enough browns, taupes and greys to keep you a happy camper.
However, I was pretty shocked to find that the palette was made of plastic! Look closely, the palette base is a nice gold that peeks through the transparent plastic housing, tricking the eye into thinking the housing was gold.
Kudos Elizabeth Arden. I felt slightly cheated, but I was more impressed with the design. Hats off to you.
Like I said, this gift set had everything!
If you're on the lookout for a nice classy gift set for your mom, I highly recommend this Elizabeth Arden gift set!
It comes with a eyeshadow and blush palette, a brush set, 3 wearable lipsticks, 2 lip glosses, 2 lip liners, 2 eyeliners, a mascara, a highlighter, a red nail polish and a makeup remover.
It does make the heart skip, aye?
I know I did when I saw it going for only AU$79! XD
