Mirabella’s Holiday 2015 Collection is set to steal your eyes and lips this holiday season! The Jewel Thief Holiday 2015 collection consist of two of the cutest eyeshadow palettes I’ve seen in a while, two new additions to their Velvet Lip line and an eyeshadow pencil. The entire collection is available now on their site.
Mirabella is one of the most underrated cosmetics brands out there right now. Seriously, I haven’t disliked anything I have tried from Mirabella before. And this collection is really no different. Before ! breakdown what was sent to me let me just say that Mirabella’s Brow Pencils are also insanely good! Lets dive into the Mirabella Jewel Thief Holiday 2015 Collection.
There are two Second Skin Eyeshadow Palettes in the collection. I have Diamond Deceit Second Skin Eyeshadow palette which is a collection of shimmery/glittery neutrals with a fun pop of color. The other palette is a collection of purples called Lavender Larceny. These Second Skin eyeshadows can be applied as a sheer wash of shimmery color or each shadow can be built up to increase the intensity of the color payoff. Each shade in the palette is silky smooth even with the amount of micro glitter present in the formula. I had zero issues applying the eyeshadows. Due to the shimmery, glittery nature of these shadows I do suggest applying them over a sticky base/primer. I get about eight to ten hours of wear time with these when wore over a decent primer.
To go with your shimmery neutrals, I was also sent Mirabella’s Blackmail Eye Crayon. This chubby eye eye pencil is a deep matte black. It’s an intensely creamy formula that can be used as a base for a holiday smoky eye OR you can use it as eyeliner. Blackmail has been a go to eyeliner for me because of how creamy and long wearing it is. I love creating a smoky, neutral everyday look with Blackmail. Once this baby sets, it’s pretty budge proof. However, it is not completely waterproof. If you tend to rub your eyes frequently I would avoid Blackmail. Overall it’s a great addition to the Mirabella Jewel thief Collection.
Finally there are two chubby lip pencils in the Mirabelle Jewel Thief collection. Mireabella Velvet Lip Pencils: Wanted and Vice. I was sent Wanted, a pretty shade of pink with a hint of brown to it. I want more of these! Wanted is like an intensely pigmented lip balm. It’s creamy and moisturizing but it doesn’t need a lipliner to make it work. Very “Your Lips But Better” shade. Perfect for an everyday holiday look and easy enough to apply that you can carry it in your purse. I am tempted to try more of their Velvet Lip pencil line. Maybe after the holidays.
All in all this a very holiday appropriate collection. The Mirabella Jewel Thief Collection delivers on all fronts! Fun, holiday shimmer that will bring out your festive side just in time for all the Winter Holidays! Have you tried anything from the Mirabella line? What are your favorites?
