Holiday 2011: Stila Dream in Full Color v. Too Faced Only in Your Dreams

Okay, is it just me or did Stila and Too Faced manage to have strangely similar holiday 2011 collection and names? Stila announced their Dream in Full Color collection (click HERE for my overview of the collection) at the beginning of September, and I just received an email notification from Too Faced announcing their holiday 2011 collection, which happens to be Only in Your Dreams (click HERE for my overview of the collection)--reminds me of the 80s song Only  In My Dreams by Debbie Gibson ;) Was this coincidence a major blunder?

MAC's holiday 2011 collection Glitter and Ice (see Musings of a Muse's fabulous overview HERE and HERE) seemed more winter-relevant by far. I kind of get the whole "dream" for the holidays, but at the same time I don't. I don't feel that either collection is super magical or wintry (though it could just be me). When I look at holiday collections I want magical winter holiday hues or frosty winter colors--either will really do! Not only do the names of these two collection (Too Faced's and Stila's) fall flat, I feel like the collections themselves are pretty flat. What's up with all of the soft neutrals? Didn't we just do neutrals this past summer (Naked palette and a few other popular neutrals).

I just don't know what these companies are thinking, to be honest. If you're looking for some soft, subtle shades then I can certainly see how either the Stila or Too Faced collection could appeal to you, but I personally don't see anything special in either holiday collection.

Very excited for MAC's Glitter and Ice collection, on the other hand! Can't wait to find out the official release date and read/see more details on this collection.

What do you think about Stila's and Too Faced's collections? Are they dreamy or simply yawn-inducing?
