BEAUTY BRANDS’ HOLIDAY EDITIONS ♥ TOP PICKS FOR YOUR WISH LIST!

The 2016 WINTER HOLIDAY SERIES are starting with an exciting top picks of beauty brands’ holiday limited editions! Most of them were just recently launched and I decided to give you a nice selection of both skincare and makeup including Lush, L’Occitane, Rituals, Maybelline, Too Faced…


L’OCCITANE PAMPLEMOUSSE RHUBARBE SETP.aspx.jpg

L’Occitane is amazing in making (pre) Christmas sets! This one caught my attention this year – it has a nice soap, hand cream and the lip balm in the cute, illustrated box. Perfect trio for cold days, the scents sound promising and the price is 115 Euros (it’s on sale!).

L’Occitane je odlican u proizvodnji (pred) Bozicnih setova! Ovaj mi je zapeo za oko ove godine – unutra je jedan divan sapun, krema za ruke i balzam za usne u slatkoj, ilustriranoj kutiji. Savrsen trio za hladne dane, mirisi zvuce obecavajuce, a cijena je trenutno spustena sa 132,00 na 113,oo kn!


 

TOO FACED 2016 CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK COLLECTION

too faced christmas in new york collection.jpg

As usual, Too Faced has an adorable Christmas collection – this year called Christmas in New York! The collection includes three sets: The Chocolate Shop, The Grand Hotel Cafe and Merry Macarons – palettes, lipsticks, blushes inspired by festive and holiday scents and colours but they for sure can be used all year long. Too Faced is a bit on a pricy side but the quality, pigmentation, formulations and packagings are amazing. They are available in Sephora!

Kao i obicno, Too Faced ima neodoljivu Bozicnu kolekciju – ove godine nazvanu Bozic u New Yorku! Kolekcija ukljucuje tri seta: The Cholocate Shop, The Grand Hotel Cafe i Merry Macarons – palete, ruzevi, rumenila inspirirana blagdanskim mirisima i bojama, ali svakako se mogu koristiti cijele godine. Too Faced je nesto skuplji no kvaliteta, pigmentacija, formule i pakiranja su fenomenalna. Dostupni su u Sephori!


 

MAYBELLINE BABY MERRY KISSMAS  & BABY MAKE ME BLUSH SET

maybelline_baby_merry_kissmas_gift_set_1477664504Maybelline_Baby_Make_Me_Blush_Gift_Set_0_1477580208.png

If you are a lip balm lover, you will adore this Maybelline Baby Lips set! There are 3 lip balms inside:  Hydrate (neutral) , Cherry Me (berry) and Pink Punch (pink). You can find all three lip balms in their all-year offer so, I wish this one would contain at least one special but in the end, it’s all about the packaging. The price? 9,60 Euro. The second one is the blush set with 3 different shades, also in a cute package, for a bit less than 16 Euros.

Ako ste zaljubljenik u balzame za usne, obozavat cete ovaj Maybelline Baby Lips set! Unutra su 3 balzama: Hydrate (neutralan), Cherry Me (boja vina) i Pink Punch (roza). Svaku od ovih mozete pronaci u njihovoj stalnoj ponudi, bilo bi mi draze da je u ovom setu barem jedan poseban, ali ovdje je sve u pakiranju. Dostupni su u vecini zemalja Europe, a nadam se da ce biti i u Hrvatskoj. Cijena? 72 kune. Drugi set sadrzi 3 rumenila u raznim nijansama, takodjer u preslatkom pakiranj, za nesto manje od 120 kuna.


 

LUSH CHRISTMAS RANGE

lush christmas edition 2016

 

I know that there are HUGE fans of Lush bath bombs out there and so am I! They never ever fail to create the bath treats for every soul. These are just some of the whole Christmas Edition this year in Lush – I particularly like the shower gel in the middle for its structure. The prices are from 6 Euros on.

Znam da medju vama ima veeeelikih obozavatelja Lush bombica za kupanje, sapuna itd. Nikad ne podbace u kreiranju novih poslastica! Ovo su samo neke iz cijelog Lush Bozicnog asortimana ove godine – mene se najvise dojmila gelasta kugla za tusiranje u sredini. Cijene su od 40ak kuna nadalje.


 

MAC COSMETICS NUTCRACKER SWEET COLLECTION

mac cosmetics christmas 2016 nutcracker sweet

New holiday collection by MAC is inspired by the Nutcracker story and dipped into pink and sugar – beautiful neon and bright pink and purple shades which are a nice twist to a regular red and green. This collection has, besides regular products such as lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushes, also a nice range of brush sets and different bag sets which make a perfect gift! Prices range from 15 to 55 Euros.

Nova blagdanska kolekcija MAC kozmetike je inspirirana Orasarom uz dodatak roze boje i secernih tonova – divne neonske roze i ljubicaste nijanse koje su super kontrast standardnoj crvenoj i zelenoj u ovo doba. U kolekciji su, osim regularnih proizvoda kao ruzevi, sjenila, rumenila, takodjer i setovi kistova i razne torbice s proizvodima iz kolekcije kao super ideja za poklone! Cijene se krecu izmedju 117 i 440 kuna.


 

ESSENCE THE LITTLE X-MAS FACTORY

 

essence-the-little-xmas-factory-limited-edition

At the beginning of December Essence will launch a super cute, mistletoe inspired collection in bright reds and dark greens with a sparkle of gold. The collection will include a palette too. This is totally on the budget and I can’t wait to try out the shimmering stars!

Pocetkom 12. mjeseca Essence izlazi s novo, preslatkom kolekcijom inspiriranom crvenom, zelenom i zlatnom bojom. Kolekcija ukljucuje ponesto od svega – rumenilo, tus, balzam, ruz, lak za nokte, ali i jednu paletu. Cjenovno vrlo prihvatljivo i jedva cekam isprobati ove zvjezdice s prve slike!


 

YVES ROCHER CHRISTMAS COLLECTIONvy657-tile

What I love about Yves Rocher is this year’s scents in Christmas collection! The red collection has cranberry and almond notes, the yellow one smells like pear and cocoa and the orange one is a classic, orange and cinnamon. The prices are amazingly affordable (from 3 Euros on) and combining products into the sets are limitless. 

Ono sto mi se svidja u ovogodisnjoj Bozicnoj Yves Rocher kolekciji su mirisi! Crvena linija mirisi na brusnicu i bademe, zuta na krusku i kakao, a narancasta je klasika, klementina i cimet. Cijene su nevjerojatno prihvatljive (od 20ak kuna nadalje), a kombiniranje proizvoda u setove je doslovno bezgranicno. 


 

THE BODY SHOP CHRISTMAS COLLECTIONthe body shop christmas collection spiced-apple-softening-body-butter-2-640x640-side

I adore The Body Shop Christmas collection every single year and they did not disappoint this season either! There is something for everyone – the frosted berry line, the spiced apple one (I would totally go for that one) and the vanilla chai. Each line has all product types which can be bought individually or in the set. The price range is 10 to 20 Euros.

Obozavam The Body Shop Bozicne kolekcije svake godine, a ni ove nisu razocarali! Ima za svakog ponesto – frosted berry linija, spiced apple linija (moja omiljena) i vanilla chai linija. Svaka od njih podrazumijeva proizvode svih tipova, od tusiralica do mazalica, koji se mogu kupiti zasebno ili u setu. Cijenovni range je otprilike 80 do 180 kuna.


 

CIATE SNOW GLOBE NAIL POLISH COLLECTION

 

ciat_eacute__london_snow_globe_1_1475572151

Ciate launched the Snow Globe nail polish collection with 6 beautiful colours including sparkling, shimmering and glossy ones! I absolutely love this colour selection, super easy to create tons of different combinations on your nails but they are easily worn all year long. Also, the packaging is very hard to resist! The price of the set on ASOS is around 30 Euros.

Ciate je izbacio novu kolekciju lakova za nokte nazvanu Snow Globe sa 6 predivnih nijansi koje su definitivno u trendu ove zime. Selekcija boja je idealna za kreiranje raznih kombinacija, ali je lako nosiva i tijekom cijele godine. Naravno, i pakiranju je tesko odoljeti! Cijena na ASOS-u je oko 250 kuna. 


 

RITUALS THE RITUAL OF LIGHT COLLECTION

rituals the ritual of light.jpg

Rituals decided to go with classic Christmas scent this year’s The ritual of light collection  – sweet orange and cinnamon. I can tell you, this one is the holiday heaven (I have the foaming shower gel)! You can choose between the shower gel, bath soap, scrub, body lotion, candle and the room mist. The prices start from 8,50 Euros and I can promise you that you will not regret it.

Rituals se ove godine odlucio vratiti klasicnim Bozicnim mirisima u novoj The ritual of light kolekciji – slatka naranca i cimet. Mogu vam iz iskustva reci, ovo je blagdanski raj! Mozete birati izmedju pjenusavog gela za tusiranje, kupke, pilinga, kreme za tijelo, svijece i mirisa za prostor. Cijene pocinju od 70ak kuna i mogu slobodno obecati da necete pozaliti.


 

ZOELLA BEAUTY CHRISTMAS RANGE

zoella_beauty_ginger_fizz_bath_bombs_1472648771-tile

Zoella fans were patiently waiting for the new Christmas collection and it was worth it! The collection is amazing, the packaging is really cute and the scents are the dreams come true. I love the bath fizzers and the crackers with the ginger cream but you can find other cool stuff, such as spa in the jar. Simply adorable and the prices are pretty good, form 7 to 23 Euros.

Zoellini fanovi su bili strpljivi oko Bozicne kolekcije i toga je bila i vrijedna! Kolekcija je divna, pakiranja su zaista slatka i mirisi su bas ono sto zelimo ove zime. Svidjaju mi se bombice za kupanje i slatki paketici s kremama za ruke, ali mozete naci jos zanimljivih stvarcica, kao npr. spa u staklenci. Jednostavno neodoljivo, a i cijene su relativno prihvatljive, od 60 kuna nadalje. 


 

KIEHL’S CHRISTMAS LIMITED EDITION

kiehls christmas collection 2016.jpg

Kiehl’s bestsellers are repacked into the adorable Xmas patterns and motives this year! My favorite limited edition set is Mini-Masque Must Haves three types of masks as a try-out version (29 Euros) as well as the limited edition Whipped Body Butter with shea and jojoba (34 Euros). Great job Kiehl’s!

Kiehl’s najprodavaniji proizvodi su ovog Bozica upakirani u prekrasne motive i uzorke! Moji favoriti su Mini-Masque Must Haves set s tri mini maskice za svaki tip koze i posebno izdanje Whipped Body Butter maslaca za tijelo sa shea i jojoba uljem. Odlican posao od strane Kiehl’s-a! P.S. Kiehl’s kod nas mozete naci u Zagrebu u Arena centru.


AVON CHRISTMAS BUBBLE BATHS

avon-bath

Avon totally has me with these two new Christmas inspired bubble baths – the Reindeer vanilla & plum and Santa Clause apple & cinnamon. I even believe they are in the kids’ section but who cares, they are just too cute :) They are each 250 ml and the price for one is only 2,5 Euros.

Avon me totalno kupio s ove dvije nove verzije kupki inspirirane blagdanima – Sob vanilija & sljiva i Djed Bozicnjak jabuka & cimet. Mislim da cak i spadaju u djecji asortiman, ali to me uopce ne dira, puno su preslatki :) Svaka kupka  je 250 ml, a cijena jedne je 17 kuna.


ZOEVA PLAISIR BOX

zoeva-plaisir-box-thumbnail-02_1170x1170-tile

Lets all take a moment and admire the new Zoeva palettes from a Plaisir Box! I mean, how gorgeous are they?! Three palettes come in a beautiful set (62 Euros) or individually (22,50 Euros). From the bottom to the top we have Blanc Fusion, Caramel Melange and Cocoa Blend – all three with beautiful warm tones! I am seriously thinking between Caramel Melange and Cocoa Blend, which one is your favourite?

Hajde da malo zaustavimo vrijeme i divimo se novim paletama iz Plaisir Box seta! Zaista, koliko su prekrasne?! Tri palete dolaze u setu (460 kn) ili zasebno (165 kn). Od gore nadolje imamo Blanc Fusion, Caramel Melange i Cocoa Blend – sve tri s toplim nijansama! Ozbiljno razmisljam izmedju Caramel Melange i Cocoa Blend, koja je vas favorit?


Would any of these join your wish list? :) Which limited edition collections are you favorite? If you have another holiday collection that you would like to share, feel free to do so! <3

Hoce li se neka od ovih kolekcija naci na vasoj listi zelja? :) Koja limitirana kolekcija vam se najvise svidja i koju najvise ocekujete? Ako imate jos neki dodatan prijedlog kojeg ovdje nema, slobodno podijelite u komentarima! <3


xoxo, A.

  1. MAC kolekcija mi se nekako najvise svidja (nosive boje,a pakiranje blagdansko)! Yves Rocher moram pogledat jer uvijek krasno mirisu njihovi gelovi….Ne znam zasto,ali ja obicno zavrsim u Lerbolariu pred blagdane i tamo slozim par setova i jos sve upakiraju prekrasno sa susenim cvijecem i travama :)

  2. I LOVE those nail polishes…only problem with ordering nail polishes none of these sites deliver to Croatia :( I’ve got my eye on the Rituals candle! You’ve got a yummy selection of xmas gift ideas! :)

    1. I love them too! Yes, Sephora and Feel Unique don’t deliver to Croatia, but ASOS does for example. The links in Croatian text and in English text are sometimes different, I tried to find the best solutions but of course, we don’t have a lot of these brands in Croatia, unfortunately :( However, I put all of them here cause a lot of people are traveling and could possibly bring it back from some other country :) Essence, MAC, L’Occitane, Avon, Lush, Yves Rocher, Kiehl’s are all available on Croatian market :) hope it helps! <3 xoxo p.s. Rituals can be found on every airport so if you will go or know someone – you know what to do ;)

  3. Divne kolekcije. Ja sam zaljubljena u L’occitane božićno… sve! :D Šteta je samo što se deo toga u Hrvatskoj ne može kupiti, ugl. Ne bih se bunila da me neko iznenadi Zoeva ili Too Faced lepotama :D
    Odličan post!

    1. Ja takodjer, a mama ima tradiciju uvijek mi nesto uzeti za Bozic u L’Occitaneu, nema vece srece! :) Ali slazem se, nikad nema svega sto i vani. Joj jel mi vjerujes da o Zoevi ozbiljno razmisljam, samo se ne mogu odluciti iskreno, dala bih za nju tih 160 kuna :) hvala ti draga, brisem na tvoj blog! pusa!
