Review: Nabla Holiday Collection 2018

Hi loves! I wanted to get this post up sooner, but I did wanna test everything out and this year's Nabla Holiday Collection is huge! I don't know even where to start. This collection contains 2 highlighters, eyeliner, 4 lip glosses, 3 liquid lipsticks, 5 lip kits, 2 highlighting brushes and 10 eyeshadow brushes.


This collection contains 2 Glow Trip Highlighters in shade Crown and Divinizer (6.5g). These come in clear plastic compacts and I can see through the lid the beautiful highlighter. The lid has only the brands name on it. The pattern of the highlighters is so stunning!

  • Crown - is champagne gold and I have been wearing it the most.
  • Divinizer - is peach-magenta and gold duochrome. It's also gorgeous, but I find I can't pull it off with every look.

On the left you can see both shades swatched and Crown is more intense than Divinizer. These have mirrored finish and the formula is super light, transparent and it melts into the skin. It blends out easily and you can build it up for more intense look, if you want. These can also be used dry and wet. 

Next we have Nabla Serial Liner  (0.8ml) and this is precision liquid waterproof liner. It has metallic packaging and is the size of a pen. It has a fine brush tip, which I love and it lets me create perfect winged out liner.

The formula of it is waterproof and it stays put all day. It doesn't smudge or flake through out the day. It's also dermatologist tested. It is also super pigmented! It usually doesn't bleed on me, but it did bleed on me once, when I applied too much product at once. Now days it hasn't bleed on me and I have used it since December. It's still as black and pigmented.

This collection contains 4 Shine Theory Lip Glosses and the shades are Lethal Nude, Dresscode, Syrup and Crazy Dimond (2.5g, €11.90). The glosses come in clear tubes and have traditional doe foot applicator. These have 2 different formulas one, which is pigmented like a lipstick with glossy finish and the second one is clear base with tons of micro glitter in it. It makes it the perfect topper.

These lip glosses are not sticky and feel on lips light weight. Whenever I use these my lips look so much bigger. I also wanna mention these have a slight sweet scent to them, but it's not too strong.

  • Lethal Nude - is light rosy warm beige shade and its from the pigment formula family.
  • Dresscode - is medium mauve nude and is from the full pigment family.
  • Crazy Diamond - is clear gloss with red, coral, platinum and magenta  mini sparkles. It's from the 3D reflect family. I do feel the sparkles on the lips.
  • Syrup - is medium dark reddish nude from the full pigment family.

This collection also contains 3 Dreamy Matte Liquid Lipsticks in shade Berry Bite (3ml, €14.90), Lysergic Red (2.5g, €14.90) and Baudelaire (3ml, €14.90). For the holiday season their liquid lipsticks come in floral platinum gold pattern, which looks so beautiful. These have traditional doe foot applicator and have sweet vanilla coconut scent to them. The formula is with shea butter to keep the lips hydrated through out the day. These are also dermatologically tested.

I love their liquid lipsticks. These last long, but these do fade in the middle when I have had food. I can easily do touch ups and it doesn't look weird when I do so. These are drying, but not as much as some others in my collection. I can use these daily, if I want to.

  • Berry Bite - is berry shade with matte finish.
  • Lysergic Red - is a metallic fiery red. Super unique shade.
  • Baudelaire - is a matte deep cinnamon red.

The final makeup items in this collection are 5 of the Dreamy Lip Kits Rose Ed. (€18.90) and the shades are Placebo, Melrose, Attractive, Vivid Velvet, Romanticized. The kits contain Dreamy Matte Liquid Lipstick and Velvetline Lipliner. Everything has the limited edition Rose Edition packaging. The liquid lipsticks in the kits are all pigmented and glide on easily. I did have issues applying some of their Velvetline Lipliners, which are waterproof. Usually these glide on like a dream, but 2 shades where harder to apply, which are Melrose and Vivid Velvet.

  • Melrose - is a matte chestnut rose. It's beautiful shade, but the liner is hard to apply.
  • Vivid Velvet - is a matte pure bright fuchsia. The liner is not as creamy, but its so beautiful and fun shade. I did notice it stained my lips.

  • Placebo - is a matte pomegranate red.
  • Romanticized - is a matte rosy mauve. It has been my everyday color.
  • Attractive - is a matte medium light nude brown.

Brushes & Accessories:

This collection contains a beautiful Glowy Makeup Bag (€12.90), which fits everything in it. The bag has platinum gold metallic texture and the size of the bag is 20 cm x 13 cm x 6 cm. I find it so useful to have it on the go. It fits all my essential makeup items.

On the picture above you can also see another bag, which is smaller. It's also made by the same material. In it came the White Rose Eye Brush Set. The White Rose Eye Brush Set (€ 46,00) contains 10 eye brushes and these are synthetic brushes.

  • Cut Crease Maker - It's perfect to make the cut crease or to carve out the brows.
  • Soft Crease - is perfect to apply the crease color. It's also super soft.
  • Large Shade - is so soft brush and I love using it in the crease to apply darker eye shadow.
  • Precision Buffer - is perfect to blend out the edges and also the lower lash line.

  • Dab & Smudge - is perfect to smudge out a pencil and the bristles are so soft and it doesn't hurt the delicate eye area. 
  • Precision Shader - is another soft brush, which is excellent to apply darker colors to crease and blend.

  • Liner & Brows - I do like it for brows, but for liner its bit too long for my liking.
  • Lip & Detail - it's perfect to apply lipstick and apply glitter or highlighter in the inner corner of the eye.
  • Lashline Smudger - is perfect brush to get really close to the lash line 
  • Small Pencil - I have to say I haven't found use for this one yet.

Next in the collection are 2 brushes to apply highlighters. There's Fan Brush (€11.50) and Highlighter Brush (€11.50). Both brushes are cruelty free and have synthetic bristles. Nabla recommends to use the Fan Brush to blend out your highlighter. I have used both to apply it and I prefer the Highlighter brush. 

This is it for this post! I know it was super long one. I hope you enjoyed it and if you are interested in any of the products you can find the collection here.
