Kim Seybert Spotlight placemat, set of 4 – Value $112

Add some sparkle to your table with these shimmering place mats. Ideal for the holidays and special occasions, they dress up any table setting. Just wipe with a damp cloth to make cleaning up after a party a breeze.

These placemats measure 15 inches across and they are SO sparkly and fun!

This is one of the items in the box with no variation. (If you ordered silver or gold you’ll be getting this set.)

And in case you missed it… The first spoiler item will be available in silver or gold (you’ll receive the metal of your choice):

Chan Luu Swarovski Crystal & Pearl Necklace and Earring Set in Gold or Silver – Value $195

Accessorize with trendy yet classic accessories with this set from Chan Luu. The Swarovski pearl necklace can be worn at any length from pendant to choker, and the dangling pearls of the hoop earrings make the classic shape more modern. This season is all about standing out, and this ultra-luxe set can be worn together or apart for an stylish look.

(POPSUGAR sent me this set early so I can answer any questions you have about the spoiler.)

The necklace is 17″ and extends to 19″. 

The earrings measure about 1.75″ in total length (top of hoop to bottom of pearl dangle.)

And here is the gold version:

(We took a lot of pictures of the packaging because it is SO gorgeous! You could definitely gift this set!)

And here is the necklace on to give you a better sense of scale:

I’m all for delicate gold jewelry, so this necklace is pretty much perfect for me!

UPDATE: And here’s Anna modeling the silver set!

  1. I love the placemats!

  2. YSL is not a cruelty-free brand (yes, there are some companies that insist on torturing animals for no reason, as there are better technologies these days). Despite the palette being nice, I’ll stick to giving my money to brands who do NOT test on animals, like Le Métier de Beauté, Illamasqua, and Julep.

    • Thanks for your input. Appreciate it.

    • 20 years ago I worked in a medical school. White rats were bred for scientific research. I remember one time the researchers got female rats pregnant for some reason. I remember a cage after cage full of those poor little rats go off to be killed. And one time researchers got a stay female dog to use to test antibiotics on. She turned out to be pregnant. All her puppies and then the dog herself had to be murdered all in the name of science. I begged the doctors to let me have her when they were through abusing her but the law is if an animal is used for research they must be euthanized. She was a beautiful German Shepard Mix.

      We must boycott products that are not cruelty free.

      I have not thought about that for years until tonight……it is time companies be boycotted into going cruelty free. If a product is made or sold in China, it is not cruelty free.

  3. Me, too. Very fair with green eyes. These colors look much better on me than the taupes and browns.

  4. Hey Liz–Thanks so much for the great pics. One question–when you have the necklace on, is that at it’s longest length ? Where on the chain is the end fastened in that pic? Just trying to get an idea of it’s length.

  5. NOpe, still not doing it for me, so glad I passed!!!!

  6. YAY! This is looking like a great box! So glad I got it (I got gold). YSL is an incredible brand to include, and their makeup is very high quality in my opinion. I know some may be put off by the pink shade, as I was when I first encountered pink in a palette, but I played around with it and found that it actually makes a gorgeous blending color over normal base colors. Just add a touch and it adds so much warmth and glam. Give it a try!

    Personally I hope we get the Jonathan Adler barware set and the pineapple (shaker or ice container-there are two variations), and the cheese tray. Would be very happy! By my calculation, if we get all those items, we’d have a little left for a yummy snack and maybe the rose gold eyelash curler. Would love a box with those goodies in it!!!

    • To be honest I would love a pineapple ice bucket. That might push me into buying this. I don’t see it in silver though. I might actually buy this if this box had an pineapple ice bucket in it. I use ice all the time and would love this beside my bed (I know that is strange but I am constantly water and cold green tea).

      I might be pushed enough to seriously down size my FFF add ons if there are complete spoilers within the next week or so.

      I want to see full spoilers before I bite. But if it is an ice bucket I may bite.

  7. I’d be down to buy the palette off of someone who wants to get rid of it 🙂

    • Hi! You are welcome to buy mine when I get it. I’m pretty trendy, but will be turning 50 in December and these colors are not me at all. LOL. I wish they would do more universal “wearable” colors.

      • However, us fair skinned, cool toned girls are singing with joy. Those so-called “universal shades” do not compliment us at all. These are totally my colors.

        • Exactly. I’m warm toned so the palette is a miss for me. Definitely not universal colors.

        • Yes, indeed, Jennifer! I was pretty excited when I saw this palette versus copper and bronze. That’s all the palettes have been in every box for the past year. Thank you, PS, for giving us something different. Mauves, bordeaux, dark plum, and purples are gorgeous. Pink is a surprisingly beautiful color for eye shadow. Great, great, surprise!

    • They sell it at NM online and Bergdorf Goodman.

  8. While I LOVE the eye shadow I don’t wear a lot of makeup (I work from home) and have plenty for the occasions when I go out. I will be swapping mine for sure.

    • I’d love to swap for it. 😉

      • You can have mine..i never wear eyeshadow.

        • Thank you, Brandy! My swap profile is attached to my name. 😉

  9. I did some quick Googling, and it looks like this palette was released for Fall 2017 and is a Neiman Marcus (the store itself, not this box) exclusive. I have way too much eyeshadow already, but I am excited to try out these colors! They seem perfect for a party or a night out!

  10. Liz I would love to see a tutorial with the palette!

    • Agreed, I’d love to see a tutorial! I think you, Liz, and Anna should each do a tutorial. I love when there is more than one reviewer and/or model for clothes and jewelry, why not for a makeup tutorial as well?

  11. I half love the placements! But the rest to me, is aweful. However, I am not complaining because I’m actually going to skip this box for the first time ever which feels weird and sad all the same time I thought the third spoiler would push me over the edge and I would get it for sure I’m glad I didn’t jump on the pre-order. I can see how some people would absolutely love the necklace and earrings, they are pretty not my style and I am overwhelmed with extra jewelry at the moment. The pallet is actually gorgeous but totally not my colors as I use benefit big beautiful eyes every day pretty neutral

  12. I got the spoiler emaailnd I see a Smith & Cult Nail Polish on the tray. I may be wrong but I see something very similar to Smith and Cult packaging.

    • Sorry about the verbiage on that last post 🙂

    • That looks like the rose gold Smith & Cult polish we got in a PS mini box last year.

  13. Ugh… I love getting spoilers, however, this is driving me nuts. I’m half tempted to order a second box since if I get the extra plate mats online it’s already almost half the box at regular price. If they do another spoiler I like … I’m gonna get in trouble with my hubby

  14. I am sooo hoping there are no allergens in the shadow for me, such pretty colors!

  15. I can’t afford the box at the moment, but I LOVE the eyeshadow colors.
    Bravo to PS and NM for not going with nudes or neutrals. 🙂
    As a person with very light hair and eyes, I love the cool tones so much!

    I’m not on the swap site but if anyone wants to sell, I’d love to buy the palette. 🙂

  16. Woo Hoo !!!! I love all of these pretty treats so far.

    It is so fun to get some unexpected goodies that I would never have considered to purchase for myself.

    My home and I will be ringing in the new year decorated in purple and gold.

    Thanks Pop Sugar and Neiman Marcus!!!!!!

  17. Nothing in the box is something I really want or need, so I will be passing on this box. Everything so far is very festive; if I didn’t have so much stuff and other things higher up on my wish list, I would be tempted.

  18. It’s all very nice so far but definitely not my taste. Glad I decided to pass on this one. Maybe one of the less touted spoilers yet to come will give me heartburn but so far, nada.

  19. This YSL palette is very pretty! Although I am 99% sure I will not buy this box, I would love a tutorial video. I just can’t commit almost $300 to a box when I do not know all the contents.

    Thank you for asking!

  20. I’m loving the colors of this palette (not so much the pink, but I love purple eyeshadows!) but I’ve never been drawn to YSL shadows. I only ever bought a couple of them – maybe I just made some poor selections.

    For me, this box is on the verge of being awesome. Just… not QUITE there. At least not $250 worth of there.

  21. This is a lovely palette. While I am 99% not going to buy this box, I would love a tutorial. I love your videos. Thank you so much for asking!

    p.s. Maybe I will change my mind entirely about the box when full spoilers are revealed but almost $300 is a lot of money for me since I lived on a fixed income and I am almost 100% I will get the Rachel Zoe Winter Box and some Fab Fit Fun add ons.

  22. I feel like someone’s eccentric grandma is going to love this box

    • Hahaha. I’m 34, but I do feel like I could be an eccentric grandma, and I ordered two boxes. One of each. 😉

      • 34 here too! I already bought the gold but am really tempted to get the silver as well. If they offer a coupon I’ll definitely do it.

    • Hahahahahaha!!!!!!

  23. Liz, does the jewelry set count as one or two items? And does the placemat set count as one or four?

    • I believe both count as one item, but I’ll reach out to POPSUGAR to verify!

  24. Ha! A YSL palette! i remember in the comment section earlier, someone snarked “ysl will not be in this box” and look whats here. Good on the ones that guessed it!

  25. Boooo

  26. I love everything in this box but definitely can’t drop $250!! Bummer!! 🙁

  27. A tutorial would be awesome and helpful! Thanks Liz!

    • Second this.

  28. Everything is really beautiful but not my taste. I was waiting for the next spoiler to decide and it’s decided….I won’t be purchasing this box.

  29. The pallette is very pretty. I would love a tutorial and not to get to specific but I normally wear very neutral eye shadow. However, I wouldn’t mind learning how to spice it up a notch without looking like a clown. Also, maybe the tutorial could have a variety of people. For example, I am pale, my loving husband calls it porcelain skin and I have blue eyes. I would love to see some instruction on this collection.

    • too specific – my typo

  30. I was really wanting tho get this box this year, but not with any of the current items. None are appealing to me so far and the YSL shadows look like a spring collection…hopefully not last spring. Where are fall/winter shades? This box is definitely not for me and I am really disappointed by it.

  31. I love this website and all youlovrly people!

    I got the email about this spoiler and knew I had to head over and read comments. I like it but not enough. I have to check in and see everyone else’s reactions.

    I miss the curation of my 1st Popsugar/Neiman’s Box. It was with a Claire V clutch etc. I LOVED that box. This one isnt quite doing it for me but I’m happy for everyone who bought it and loves it!

  32. Not my style at all. I’m relieved I chose not to buy this box! Everything is nice and all but just not my style.

  33. I feel like this is a very loud box. With such a high price tag I would hope for a more refined look.

  34. Wow that looks bad (for my taste). I imagine this will be an easy palette to pick up i a swap.

    • I hope so cause I love it. 🙂

  35. Would definitely love to see a tutorial for using these colors! Hoping they blend well and are highly pigmented when applied on the eyelids.

  36. Hey Liz, does the eyeshadow palette colors depend on the color of the box you chose?

    • No, everyone will receive this exact palette. Hope that helps! 🙂

  37. Oooh i love that pallet. Those are my colors. I love the spoilers for this. Ugh, I’m dying to get it.

    • Me, too. Very fair with green eyes. These colors look much better on me than the taupes and browns.

  38. Love that such a great brand is included in YSL. Desperately hoping I win the free box because I can’t afford it but the spoilers are amazing

  39. So grateful I skipped it. It’s all awful!

    • I don’t think it’s awful. It isn’t what appeals to me, but I think all of the items are really nice. We all have different tastes.

      • Exactly, Nancy. I love how people can just declare something “awful” and never think how that sounds to others. I would not get this box based on spoilers, but I am glad others like it!

    • Lol!! 😂
