Lust or Bust | Holiday Collections 2017 – YSL, Armani, Guerlain, Natasha Denona, Laura Geller and Fenty Beauty.

Lust or Bust Holiday Collections 2017 pt VIII

A Sunday post? Yep, and we are almost done with the Holiday Lust or Busts! in today’s post we have holiday launches from Fenty, Armani, Guerlain, Natasha Denona, YSL, and Laura Geller. I have selected some of the items from each launch that caught my eye, rather good or bad.

So let’s get into this!

YSL Holiday 2017
YSL Holiday 2017

Starting with YSL because they have some gorgeous things this year.

Palette De Maquillage Dazzling Lights Edition

The packaging on this palette is so pretty! I don’t hate the shades either but why the lipsticks in the palette. UGH! I hate that. It cheapens the palette in my opinion. If this was just the blush and the eyeshadows I would be way more into this. I really enjoy compact.

This set contains:

  • Eyeshadow in soft pink, silver grey, champagne gold, dark purple
  • Satin Lip Colors in light rose, deep red
  • Highlighting Powder in Luminous Pink
  • Mini blush brush
  • Mini eyeshadow brush
  • Mini lip brush

Rouge Pur Couture Dazzling Lights Edition Lipstick – Holiday Kiss Collection

Next up is some holiday packaging of 7 of the best selling shades of lipstick.  I think the shades that were chosen for the holiday components are great. There is a shade everyone would like. I’m really into Le Nu, the basic nude shade.

  • 1 Le Rouge – blood red
  • 9 Rose Stiletto – rich berry rose
  • 13 Le Orange – bright orange
  • 19 Le Fuchsia – bright fuschia pink
  • 52 Rouge Rose – rosy coral
  • 70 Le Nu – basic nude
  • 54 Prune Avenue

On to the gift sets. I am really excited about these. Especially the Black Opium one.

Black Opium Beauty Gift Set

I want this set! I love Black Opium, and in this, you get it in a collectors edition bottle which as a perfume collector I appreciate and you get a lipstick and mini mascara. It’s a nice bonus getting the lippy and mascara because the perfume alone retails for around the same price or more. Win Win!

  • 1.6 oz Sparkle Clash Limited Collector’s Edition Eau de Parfum Spray
  • Iconic Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in no.4 Rouge Vermillon
  • Mini Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils.

Mon Paris Beauty Gift Set

Same goes for the Mon Paris Beauty Set as for the Black Opium.

This set contains:

  • Mon Paris Eau de Parfum Spray
  • Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick in #49 Bright Strawberry Pink
  • Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Black

Black Opium & Mon Paris Lipstick Gift Set

Another set I would like is this one. You get two travel size sprays, one in Black Opium and one in Mon Paris plus a lipstick. I am a fan of a travel size fragrance for my handbag and I love the lipstick shade.

This set contains:

  • Black Opium Eau de Parfum Travel Spray
  • Mon Paris Eau de Parfum Travel Spray
  • Mini Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 13 Le Orange

Lip Vault

The Lip Vault is pretty pricey but you are getting a good bit of product from a high-end brand. I personally would pass but for a YSL lippy fan, this would be a lovely gift.

This set contains:

  • – 3 x Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in 04 Rouge in Danger (raspberry red), 47 Beige Blouse (nude pink), 48 Smoking Plum (wine stained berry)
  • – 3 x  Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 01 Le Rouge (classic red), 13 Le Orange (orangey red), 70 Le Nu (original nude)
  • – 3 x  Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in 404 Nude Pulse (touch of nude), 401 Rouge Vinyle (True Red), 410 Fuschia Live (dusty pink)
Giorgio Armani Holiday 2017

I Love Armani Red Carpet Eyes and Face Palette

I don’t know about you, but this palette does NOTHING for me but at least it doesn’t have lipsticks. I’m just not into the shades at all. It feels kind of dated?

This set contains:

  •  Luminous Silk Compact Powder in Universal Shade
  • 2 x  Compact Cream Concealers in shades 3 and 5
  • 4 x  Sparkling and matte eyeshadows in dark blue and plum shades
  • 4 x  Sparkling and matte eyeshadows in gold, plum, and gray shades
  • 2 x Sparkling and matte eyeshadows in black (matte) and silver (sparkling)
  • 2 x Face sponge applicators
  • 2 x Eyeshadow applicators
  • Black suede pouch

Lip Magnet Holiday Limited Edition

Next are some Holiday Limited Editions of the Lip Magnets which is Armani’s liquid lipstick. I really think all these shades are stunning and wouldn’t hate owning all of these.

508 Androgini – kissable in nude blush.
509 Romanza – elegant in dusty pink.
510 Magnetic – luminous in rose.
603 Adrenaline – charged with intense burgundy.
605 Insomnia – decadent in chestnut.

Laura Geller Holiday 2017

Glow For It Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator Trio

From Laura Geller we have the Baked Swirl Illuminator Trio is huge unnecessary packaging but it’s a great collection of the best selling shades of her highlighter. This is a great way to have all the shades if you have had your eye on them.


  • French Fizz (soft yellow gold w/ pearlescent shimmer)
  • Pixie Pearl (soft pink w/ hint of lilac and pearlescent shimmer)
  • Molten Copper (shimmering golden copper)

Limited Edition Ornament – Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust

Next, we have a specially packaged version of the Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust which I think is a pale girl must have shade. So pretty!

Gilded Goddess 3 Pc Illuminating Collection

This little trio is a great deal for someone who loves glow. I don’t think Gilded Honey is most flattering shade for my skin tone but it’s so pretty that I don’t even care and want it. LOL. This is a nice gift set that I think just about anyone would enjoy.


  • Easy Illuminating Stick in Gilded Honey (0.17 oz)
  • Deluxe Travel Size Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey (0.07 oz)
  • Spackle Tinted Make-Up Primer in Champagne (0.5 oz)

All Over Glow 2 Pc Kit – Gilded Glow Baked Body Frosting

This is just cute. I like the applicator.


  • Baked Body Frosting in Gilded Glow (sparkling golden caramel) (0.71 oz)
  • Applicator

Eyeshadow Palette 5 – Holiday Edition

I really like Joya and most of the shades from Aeris but that blue… bleh. These do feel kind of redundant. I wish I could pick and choose shades from each of these.

Guerlain Holiday 2017

Météorites Gold Pearls of Powder

From Guerlain, there is a gorgeous limited edition packaging of the Meteorites in Gold Pearl. I don’t know if this shade would be flattering on fair skin, but I think it would work and add a nice warmth. This would look beautiful on a vanity.

Gold Light Topcoat Mascara

I think there was one of these gold mascaras in another high-end holiday collection. Dior maybe? Anyway, I think these are a cool concept but not something I would be into from a high-end brand. It’s something I would expect from WetNWild, not Guerlain.

Terracotta Gold Bronzing Powder

Last from Guerlain is special packaging for holiday of the Terracotta Gold Bronzing Powder which I think is a beautiful bronzer and I love the Art Deco print.

Fenty Beauty Holiday 2017

Lastly, we have Fenty Beauty. I love this collection as a whole. The components and packaging are stunning. I like the whole outer space theme. I dig it.

Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette

But… I am so not into the palette. I love the case but the shades are just so lacking. I have swatched this palette so many times and every time I am just let down. I get they are more of eyeshadow toppers but it just feel flat.

This set contains:

  • 14 x Eyeshadows in Xtra Terrestrial (smoky moss with iridescent green), Lightyear (smoky charcoal with gold glitter), Planet Ex (smoky brown with iridescent glitter), Oh-Zone (sheer platinum glitter), Ultraviolit (smoky violet with iridescent glitter), Sublime (sheer mint and gold glitter), Milky Way (ivory with iridescent glitter), Cosmic Ocean (sheer aqua glitter), Meteor Crush (sheer pink and gold glitter), Jupiter Sand (smoky chocolate with iridescent purple), Mars On Fire (sheer copper rose glitter), Midnight Bolt (true blue with superfine glitter), Space Owt (smoky grape with holographic blue), Sunburst (amber with gold glitter)

Galaxy 2-Way Eyeshadow Brush

Seperately, you can purchase a brush. Just include the damn brush like every other brand.

Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner

These liners though. They are bad ass. I love the shade Later, Crater. I have never seen a liner in that color and with the glitter element. It’s amazing. The other shades are really pretty as well.

  • Alien Bae – blue-black metallic / smoky navy glitter
  •  Later, Crater – nude metallic / nude gold glitter
  • Nepturnt – green-black metallic / smoky emerald glitter

Cosmic Gloss Lip Glitter

My next favorite of the collection next to the eyeliners are the Cosmic Gloss, especially the shade Astro-Naughty. These are absolutely stunning glosses and I don’t get excited about a gloss very often. Also the shade names of everything in this collection is too cute.

  • Gal On The Moon – holographic pink orchid
  • Plutonic Relationship – holographic hot pink
  • Astro-Naughty – glittering garnet
  • Spacesuit – glittering peach

Starlit Hyper-Glitz Lipstick

I’m less excited about the lipsticks but I do really dig Sci-Fly. Very pretty and I need it! LOL.

  • $upanova – twinkling pink orchid
  • Supermoon – sparkling peach
  • Gravity – shimmering hot pink
  • Sci-Fly – glimmering garnet
