FOTD: Michael Kors for Estee Lauder Holiday Set 2012 and Mini Review

This is the look for the Estee Lauder Holiday Set I bought a few days ago. I promised you I’d show you how they all look on me and here it is. For those of you who missed that post, please go read that first. Swatches for all products are there too! I decided to go totally bold for this look, hope you like it!


For this look, it is important for the face to look clean. It means shit loads of concealers for my flawed face. Some hormonal breakouts around my chin but luckily MUFE Full Cover concealer camouflaged them. I filled in my brows and started drawing my eyes. The black kohl pencil is very pigmented and smooth, and a word of warning: transfers! I initially wanted a cat eye flick only, but the black liner transferred onto my lids! I figured what the heck, I’ll just draw on top of it too then. The line became thicker and then became this. LOL!

I used the blush to contour, because I thought it would go with this look. I tried using it on the apples of my cheeks, and find it a little too dark. A very light hand is needed for fair skinned girls, but I would imagine this being very lovely for those with medium to dark skin. The mini mascara has a HUGE brush in it. But I liked it. Coats well, no clumping, volumizes fantastically too.

Then the lips. It is quite tricky to apply straight from the bullet unless you already have perfectly shaped lips. Mine are uneven, so any little flaws are emphasized. The red is bold and very pigmented. I applied it with a lip brush, and I’m glad to report there is no feathering. Gloss is a little sticky, so for this look, I only dabbed it at the centre of my lips.

Here is the final look!



Very dramatic eh? Looks good with your black number though 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this as much as I had fun creating it. Thanks for reading!
