The Holiday Blockbuster collection £35 is a treasure trove of make-up marvels. 16 Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow, 4 Amazonian Clay Blush, a Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara and LipSurgence Lip Crème. I don’t mean to sounds all QVC-y, but the individual retail price of this booty is well over £300 – ridiculous value. It’s basically a make up artist’s starter kit! The quality is sublime, more on that later, but it’s the easiest most usable kit I’ve ever come across. Even if you’re a makeup efficiardo, it can be a pain in the ass thinking up colour combos and working out what goes with what. The kit is broken down into colour coordinated eye shadow quads – a neutral/taupe one, a warm, browny bronze one, a plummy one and a grey one, each with corresponding blush. You can mix n match the shades as much as you want, but it gives you a stear of what looks good with what. AND the piece-de-resistance, the quads are removable and fit into a handy portable magnetic palette (Z-palette style). This makes all the difference for me. I go away a lot and it wouldn’t be practical to take the whole box, but the pop out palette makes it take-any-where-able or super portable in English.

The quality of the powders is exceptional!Incredibly rich and pigmented, so much so I looked like Aunt Sally the first time I applied the blush - a little goes a long way. The amazonian clay shadows are effortless, they blend beautifully, don't crease and last, and last! I love that there's a mixture of matte, satin and shimmers and the set contains only wearable colours - day to night it's got you covered. There's not a single shadow in here that I won't use.
