Neiman Marcus 100th Anniversary Maserati Ghibli and The Best of the New Season’s Shimmer Party Palettes

Maserati Ghibli Neiman MarcusA slight surprise yesterday morning when I wandered into Neiman Marcus in downtown Dallas to find a Maserati Ghibli nestling in among the handbags.  Unexpected to put it mildly.  This is a Limited Edition Maserati Ghibli created to celebrate the car company’s 100th Anniversary.  0 – 60 in 4.7 seconds (think about that)….no problem.  Anyway I decided not today and walked on.

Having a quick walk through the beauty department of Neiman Marcus in Downtown Dallas this morning it struck me how shimmery, sparkly and just ‘new’ so many of the winter party season beauty palettes are.  So….just….irresistible.  And no I didn’t, for now.

If you want something new and sparkling for the Christmas season don't hold back, some of these are already selling out, particularly those that are exclusive to the various stores, such as Suqqu's eye palette and Shiseido's Sparkling Party Palette.

As always the major brands have brought out their Christmas offerings which, if you can resist buying for yourself, make perfect girly gifts as well.

Some of these do everything from cheek to lip to eye and will slip prettily into your clutch, others have specific duties such as Dior’s gorgeous shimmering gold compact, and Le Metier de Beaute’s blush and bronze duo.  How large is your evening clutch will be the question.

A perfect addition to any of these, where the brushes, if included, will probably not be what you want, is Bobbi Brown’s mini brush set.  Another for the Christmas wish list, if you can wait that long.
