Is it ever too early to shop for holiday makeup? Lancome Taupe Craze Color Design Palette

Oh beauty….the holiday season is fast approaching!  I am still on the fence about which frock will be making its debut on my frame but I have got my holiday makeup look in the bag!

Now normally taupe is a huge turnoff for me (minus using it on the browbone or in the tear duct area, however note the name “Taupe Craze.”  This palette is a fantastic mix of shimmer and matte shades and the shimmers just


And I love it!

What I also love is the plastic overlay that details how to use the palette as well as a package insert detailing “Day” and “Night” looks.

Are you looking at any holiday beauty items yet?  What has caught your eye?

      @Anjali I like it! I thought it was too similar to the Naked Palette at first but it’s different. Other bloggers have said Taupe Craze is cooler toned versus the warm tones of Naked.
