Selfridges Christmas in July preview
I'll admit, I went to this blogger preview of the Selfridges Christmas in July press day hoping to sneak a look at the new Tom Ford full line of colour cosmetics (launching in Autumn). Sadly there was no Tom, but I had my camera and some challenging lighting, so here are a few of my picks of the stuff to look forward to come late Autumn (doesn't it feel quite Autumnal already with the weather?)
Lancome/L'Oreal is bringing out another Advent Calendar. The Press Officer for Selfridges beauty tells me they will be ordering a lot more stock this year after last year's sold out so quickly.
Suqqu has two Christmas kits, each featuring a limited edition eyeshadow quad. One is gold toned, the other has cooler pink and grey tones. Textures are lovely, and comparable to last Autumn's quads.
Bobbi Brown again has quite a few pieces in the Holiday collection. There's a mini travel kit with teeny eyeshadows and a lipgloss in it for slipping into an evening bag (I didn't get a picture of this) and these two eyeshadow palettes which caught my eye. One is a very cool toned, dramatic charcoal, the other is a warmer pink/chocolate/taupe combination. I liked the latter very much.
