Gucci does not really stray from their makeup staples, rather they add in new colors and shades for the holidays, some of which are, on occasion limited edition. For the most part the colors are folded into the overall impressive amount of makeup options offered by the well-known luxury brand. The Gucci holiday 2016 makeup collection is already available for purchase on Gucci.com, but also at such e-tailer sites as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
It can be hard at times to get as excited by the release of a Gucci holiday collection in comparison to other brands that introduce new formulas, colors, textures and so on. That does not mean that the offerings by Gucci are in any way unimpressive. Each object is amazing and long wearing, so take a deep look at the products and consider the number of beautiful looks that can be created by them.
