Holiday 2012 Beauty Wishlist

Here is my Holiday 2012 Beauty Wishlist:

Too Faced Sweet Indulgence Palette - 54,72 euro
First of all the holiday collection from Too Faced. 
I have 3 other palettes from Too Faced and I'm very happy with them.

The bestsellers from Too Faced with exclusive must-haves within a tin that will take you from daytime to date-time in minutes. This set features three how-to cards for day, classic, and fashion looks as well as an array of shadows in pearlescent, matte, shimmer, and glimmer finishes. Indulgence has never looked so good.

Chanel Harmonie Du Soir Palette - 51,86 euro
The Chanel palette is a classic one and really good for Christmas and New Year.
In 2010 I bought the Les 4 ombres Tentation Cuvre and was very pleased with it.

This 4 eyeshadow palette reveals a deep, dense bronze gold, with a vintage lustre. Intensely seductive eyes are accentuated with plum red or softened by smoky taupe and pink shades.

Dior Grand Bal - 90,14 euro
I really love the the palette from Dior (okay, it's a lit bit pricey). A palette like this I didn't see before and it's definitely a must have.
 I have read reviews that the gold and silver are very good and not like any other gold/silver palettes.

Dior has transformed the Carnet de Bal, the dance card in which dancers in the past would write down the name of their partner, into an essential beauty accessory. This palette, sealed with a black eyeliner like a genuine Carnet de Bal, unveils a duo of luminous pearlescent platinum and gold eyeshadows that appear to be sumptuously embroidered and two glosses. 

Which one is your favorite?

For this event some of the craftsmen from the Italian house were invited to show us how they design, in different steps, bags and shoes.
You could also personalize your bag or shoes with your initials.
We also get something to drink and eat, which was cheese, ham and wine from the Emilia Romagna area.

Who Need a Fashion Shower?

Last Tursday I went to Brussels for the collection from Anna Dello Russo For H&M. The plan was that I was going to Antwerp for the collection, but the train had a delay of 15 minutes in from Diest to Aarschot. So I missed my connection to Antwerp. 
When I arrived in Brussels, at 8.30 AM, I was the first one at the store. 
After me there where 20 people in the line. 

The items where displayed in a closed area and only a few people a time would enter it. 
Everything what I wanted was available at the Nieuwstraat and I was very happy with it (the necklace was a last minute decision). 
I also showed my buys to ELLE Belgium (see video below).

Marlies Dekkers For Hunkemöller

For the first time Marlies Dekkers will release a collection with Hunkemöller. The images are looking very promising. The theme is a masked venetian ball from the eighteenth century, but when I saw these pictures my thoughts were going immediately to '50 Shades of Grey' (which of course I already read). 
The prices are very reasonable and will varies from 54,99 euro for the bra's, the panties costs 22,99 euros and the suspender belt 27,99 euros.
The collection will be sold in the Dutch, Belgian and German stores from Hunkemöller and will be available from 5th November.
Limited edition of course ;)

The set I really like is the one with the golden details, very playful for a romantic night with your guy!
