Holiday 2018 Preview!

Holiday Preview_Option2.jpg

 

We've been waiting all year for this... This year's holiday preview event is almost here! I am currently in New York City to attend this oh-so-exciting holiday event which takes place tomorrow! For anyone who was around in 2017, this is the same event that Candace attended (#BTMemories: https://community.sephora.com/t5/Trending-Now/Holiday-2017-Preview/m-p/3080939).

 

I am looking forward to showing you all what's to come this holiday so will be snapping photos and swatching as much as possible at the event. Let me tell you, there are a LOT of new products coming this year! I will do my best to get as much info as I can about each and every product.

 

I want to make sure that I am ready to hustle to ensure I capture what you want to see and can answer all of your questions. What are you most excited to see this holiday?  

 

Don't forget! Rouge gets to preview holiday product in stores before anyone else. Who is attending their local Rouge Preview?? 

 

UPDATE: Swatches and photos are coming in hot! We had so much fun at the event. Here’s a holiday card of the Beauty Directors and me to give you an idea of how cozy and festive the event truly was! @JeffreyBD @MyieshaBD @DavidBD Beauty Directors.png

 

Below you will find photos, swatches and looks from some of the product shown at the holiday preview event. If you're on a web browser (mobile or desktop) be sure to click on the spoiler tab for more information!

BITE BEAUTY - Four Little Bites Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set

I know that Bite is always a Community favorite - who doesn't love Amuse Bouche?! Open the spoiler for photos and swatches. This adorable kit is great if you love minis or want to test different shades before getting a full-sized lippie.

Drybar Glitter Gang

Spoiler
This product wins holiday in my opinion. It's one of the prettiest things I ever have seen! Now I just need it to come into stock already! If you haven't tried Drybar's products this is a great way to jump in. Who doesn't want glittery hair spray and silver glitter hair ties?!

Kevyn Aucoin NudePop Palette

Spoiler
I am in LOVE with this palette! It's a great size, not too big or too small, and the colors are perfect for a holiday party or an everyday look. These swatched like a dream - why don't I buy more Kevyn Aucoin?! I think that's changing once this is in stock... Also look at that packaging! This photo doesn't do the art justice.

Laura Mercier Illuminating Quad (aka the prettiest highlighter palette eva!)

Spoiler

My oh my! The Laura Mercier Illuminating Quad is GORGEOUS! I have a thing for studs, I even made a GIF to attempt to convey the way this palette made me feel. I probably stared at this for 30 seconds appreciating the design.

Natasha Denona Gold Palette

Spoiler

You know that I had to borrow the Natasha Denona Gold Palette to swatch and create a look! This palette features several golden metallics with a balance of neutrals as well. I loved how easy this was to use - if you're into metallics this palette is an absolute must!

 Smashbox Always On Liquid Lip Set 

Spoiler

In case anyone was wondering who ended up attending the Clean Reserve event with me to mediate and learn about clean fragrance it was @MadhuV! You'll hear more about that in a separate thread (disclaimer: I could totally put up with having to go to these brand events on a regular basis). 

 

After the event, I mentioned I had a few of the holiday products in my backpack and was delighted that she was down to swatch with me on the streets of New York Smiley Very Happy These are swatches of the Smashbox Always On Liquid Lip Set. 

SBX.pngMadhuV and I are ready to swatch any time, anywhere

This set is full of different shades so it's a great product to buy if you want to try the formula but also want to get gifts for others. Some for you some for everyone else, win win! Also that second red from the top screams holiday party - we were smitten. 

 

Side note, @MyieshaBD knows everything there is to know about beauty and she is in love with this formula. I haven't taken the plunge on these lippies but I may have to give in now.. 

TARTE - Pineapple Of My Eye Collector's Set

Spoiler
This set is so cute and I already know you're all going to fall in love with the packaging. Clearly I'm already sold Smiley Very Happy I did fail to swatch this so please share swaches if you take them at the Rouge event!

Re: Holiday 2018 Preview!

Re: Holiday 2018 Preview!

@pinkxobarbz DRYBAR - Glitter Gang Is up now ☺️

Re: Holiday 2018 Preview!

I would love it if we could start a review thread exclusive to holiday releases. There's so much coming out that I would love some input on what to get, what's good value for money and how they all perform.

Re: Holiday 2018 Preview!

Me too! There’s so much out there. How’s a girl to choose 😊

Re: Holiday 2018 Preview!

@Feebee1115 @makeitup305 There’s a reviewer on YouTube that helped me make holiday kit decisions last year that I was really happy with. Her name is Ashley Klaty. I find her so genuine, and I usually agree with her opinions on products.

 

As new kits are released throughout the months leading up to the holidays, she buys and tests a lot of them. (She’s still lesser-known so she doesn’t get most of them through PR, which I actually like!)  She’s already started posting reviews if you want to look them up 😊

Re: Holiday 2018 Preview!

@PinkEvergreen thank you!
