Now that is's officially December I think it is perfectly ok to be talking about what I want for Christmas. I'm usually very hard to buy for so I receive money for a lot of my gifts which I actually don't mind, as I love going out and spending it on things I actually really want instead of my family stressing over what to buy me! In 2016 I really want to up my makeup game and buy a hell of a lot more products, so Christmas is the perfect way to start that...
Bobbi Brown Rich Caramel Eye Palette | Bobbi Brown is a brand that I've never actually tried, I see their shimmer bricks raved about 24/7 but there's never really been anything I've wanted to pick up. This eye palette changed that for me massively, it is a neutral lovers dream. It may be a bit pricey for £38 with only 5 shades in it, but look at that glitter shade. Give me all the glitter.
Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette | Urban Decay have absolutely killed it with their Vice palette, I received the Vice 3 last year and I love it. The Vice 4 is a lot more unique and although it's rather colourful, I need it. The packaging is the main thing for me, and you can't tell me you've never bought something because of the packaging! The new Gwen Stefani palette is my other option, I may just buy both...
NARS Humoresque Lip Vault | £130 | NARS have done it again. Every year I lust over their Holiday collections and I still don't own anything from the brand. They're that brand that I always mean to buy from but I like to buy in person and my closest NARS counter is quite far away so I always leave it. After seeing this set of 5 Audacious Lipsticks in such pretty packaging, I think my jaw actually dropped. It's beautiful, and it's the perfect set of shades. Santa please love me.
Origins Ginzing Moisturiser | If you haven't heard about this moisturiser you're living under a rock, every blogger I know has tried it and raved about it, well that's what it seems like anyway. It's everywhere. I love Origins, their facemasks are a dream and make my skin perfect. I need a new moisturiser because I am crap with skincare, but I think if I find a really good one I'll get better so it might just be my time to pick up Ginzing and see what all the hype is about.
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask | I've recently just starting using Antipodes products and they're working wonders on my skin. I've had a bad skin week this week and it's cleared right up after using their cleanser and daily moisturiser! Everyone raves about their Aura Manuka Honey Mask and I am definitely one to give into the hype. This is going straight in my basket very soon if I don't receive it for Christmas.
Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Set | I must be dreaming to even think about putting this on my wishlist, but just look at it. I was just going to add the Dolce Vita palette to my wishlist but when I saw it in a set with all the other pretty products I couldn't resist adding the whole gift set. I am dying to buy something from Charlotte Tilbury, she has got her packaging on point completely. I am sold, I will own something by the end of 2015.
Laura Mercier Sleek & Chic Palette | Laura Mercier is a brand like Bobbi Brown to me, nothing has ever really caught my eye enough for me to want to try anything. I saw this palette in a Christmas gift guide over on Creepers and Cupcakes, which you can read here, and I instantly googled the palette. I love the shade range and for £45 I don't think it's a bad price. After that googling session I discovered a few more Laura Mercier products I want to try as well, I love blogging for introducing me to so many new brands, I don't think my bank balance feels the same way unfortunately!
BECCA Glow on The Go Set | BECCA products have taken the blogging world by storm and there is definitely a reason why. Their highlighters are literally highlight heaven, and I think this set is a great introduction to the brand containing two products to try for the bargain price of £20.
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms | Another Charlotte Tilbury product, oops, but it's so pretty... I have wanted a CT lipstick forever but I have no idea what shade to get and seeing as their isn't a CT counter anywhere near me I don't want to splash out on a lipstick that won't suit me. This little gift set is a great way to try 3 of their lipsticks to see what suits and what doesn't and try out the formula. I may just take a trip to London and buy a full size one if this isn't under my tree on Christmas Day.
NARS One Shocking Moment Cheek Palette | If you can tell me you don't lust over every single palette that NARS release you have to be lying to me. Everything they produce is beautiful and their packaging designs are so unique and creative. I want a few NARS blushers and their holy grail Laguna bronzer but I don't know if I'll ever use them enough to spend that much on them, so this palette which contains 4 blush shades, 2 contouring blush shades and their bestseller Laguna bronzer, seems like the perfect buy for me.
