When I see it I just cannot help myself. Probably if all the not-so-good make-up products out there were presented to me in pink packaging I would have wanted and bought them all! (Silly me!) Well, looks like Victoria's Secret and I think alike. Except these limited edition holiday products adorned in the cutest pink packaging are of superb quality!
I am not new to VS make-up. I've been loving and using their cosmetics for years and have never been let down by any. From eye shadows, to blushes, everything I've used has been nothing short of amazing! So when I saw these babies on Jo's blog (and much thanks to the person who blogged about them before her :)) I knew that I had to check them out in person!
Some of you may know that I've been looking for a highlighter but just haven't been able to make up my mind! When I saw swatches of Love Glow Radiant Face Trio , I knew it'd be perfect for this purpose. I already love it! It has just the right amount of shimmer and gives a really nice glow (which is kind of hard to capture in photos as you will see below, I tried!). It retails for $16.
Celebutante retails for $14 and is a gorgeous nude lipstick. I feel like I'm always reaching for either nudes or pinks so I wanted to check out the other colors first. I just didn't feel the red or the pink so what's a girl to do? Go nude!
To my surprise Celebutante applies like a dream as opposed to most of the super drying nude lipsticks out in the market. It's creamy and has a glossy finish so no need for lip gloss! I would say the color lasts for a good couple of hours.

Urban Decay Hustle e/s on crease, on lower lash line
Urban Decay Toasted e/s to blend Creep & Hustle

I had no idea that products from this holiday collection were 2/$25 until I got to the Victoria's Secret store, I always love a good deal! I'm really happy with my purchase, I think they are of top quality but I have to be honest the adorable packaging definitely played a great role in my purchase!
