Lets talk holiday collections shall we? today we are going to look at the Chinovi Cosmetics Holiday 2012 LE collection. Vanessa the owner took insperation from a faverouite Chiristmas carol 'O Christmas Tree' and a personal love of decorating, so the collection is centered around things you will find on (most) trees. One of the things I love about Chinoiv is the little touches the lables are supercute and I ADORE that Vanessa puts wether a product is vegan and or lipsafe while I personally am not Vegan I have friends who are it makes shopping for gifts so much easier!
As with all Chinovi collections the lable reflects the theme for this collection the lable has a cute little christmas tree. When ordering you have 4 options all in USD value ~ Sample bag - $1.00, Clamshell -$1.25, Full Size Jar w/out sifter - $4.75 and Full Size Jar W/ Sifter - $5.00
Sample Bags and Clamshells look to have about 1/4 tsp of product good for quite a few uses. Full Sized jars average around 1.2 g of product
This Collection I feel is very well rounded in terms of colours, the pigments are smooth and blend well, while they are full of sparkle they dont feel gritty on the eyes.
Now as its the holidays I am including a small giveaway the winner will get 1x full SAMPLE baggie Holiday 2012 collection =) Open internationally good luck =) now lets get onto colour descriptions =)

Final thoughts: Colours very pigmented, smooth to apply sample sizes are good, all items were sent out well within the TAT, and arrived in Australia within around 2-3 weeks. I especially like how each colour has individual ingredients and state whether the colour is vegan and/or lip safe. I will definitely be re-purchasing from Chinovi again.
