Happy first of December everyone! But more importantly, happy first day of Blogmas! This is my first year of Blogmas, and I couldn’t be more excited to share all of my festive posts with you all! So to start off my Blogmas series, I wanted to share a little wishlist of products that I am seriously tempted by…just have to finish the Christmas shopping first! Warning: this post may make you want to go on a splurge, and that is completely fine.
One thing I really love about Christmas is when brands release their festive collections!
Everything is glitter, shimmer, sparkle and is just begging to be added to your beauty collection! There are so many beauty products I have my eye on at the moment, especially after reading reviews from other bloggers!
I have been lusting after Urban Decay’s latest mascara for a couple of months now, just look at that rainbow packaging! I’d heard mixed reviews after it was first released, so didn’t want to invest straight away, plus I have quite a few mascaras that I need to use up first (who am I? Just buy the goddamn mascara). Packaging aside, I really like the look of the brush on this mascara, I have used small plastic bristle brushes in the past and think that they work better on my lashes.
How gorgeous are the shades in this Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette- Smoky, I am in love. This just screams party season to me! I have never tried Huda’s eyeshadows before, but have read some really great reviews, so now I need to see what all the fuss is about. It was super hard to pick as all of the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palettes look beautiful, but I feel like this one would work the best for me.
So I realise that I’m starting to look like a bit of a glitter obsessive, but hey, it’s nearly Christmas! I spotted Stila’s Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadows on Instagram, an MUA had uploaded a post and had used this product, and it looks like it certainly brings the party. From the picture the shade used looked highly pigmented, and looking at other reviews it is very simple to apply. I may have to invest in one (who am I kidding?) or two before all the Christmas parties so I have it ready!
Let’s be honest, I could put the whole Fenty Beauty range on this wishlist because she definitely was not playing around with these products. What caught my attention were the rave reviews of her highlighters (I’m looking at you Trophy Wife). After doing some research it turns out that the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Lightening Dust/Fire Crystal is best for fairer skin tones. The colours are beautiful in this dual palette, and after swatching in a store on my hand, they certainly do the job.
MAC’s Snowball mini kits are just adorable aren’t they? I really love the shades in the ‘warm’ kit, which are, left to right: Just Beaming, Tenor Voice, and Candy Cane. Again, it is a difficult choice as the other lip kits are equally as tempting, but I think the shades in this one will suit me best! As if the lipsticks weren’t enough it also comes with a mini statement sequin bag, complete with a mirrored ball tassel, perfect for the party season!
I love the brand Philosophy, their body washes and skincare always smell so good and feel lovely. What makes these bottles even better is that they are not only a body wash, but a shampoo and bubble bath also! Perfect for popping in your overnight bags, you’ve got everything in one. I also love anything mint scented, it is the most refreshing scent, so this would be perfect for me.
I’m sure I could go on forever adding to this list, but you would be here for hours and would most likely end up clearing my bank account, so it’s probably best I end it here!
What’s on your Christmas list this year? Have you tried any of these products, what did you think?
