So during one of my copious internet vegging out sessions, I came across a Vogue UK tweet about a christmas wish list for perfume, so I decided to do something similar but beauty and fragrances!
Left to right: Pure Zen, Scarlet Ibis, Love Goddess, Charmed I'm Sure, and Deeply Adored.
Impossibly sweet and Pink Fade from MAC's holiday collection.
Nars Illuminator in Copacabana
Surprisingly this year, I haven't come across many beauty products that make me want to spend all my money on, so being requested to compile such a list was quite tricky, but here are several things that will definitely be on the top of my shopping list when I move back to the UK!
I'm not sure if you can still find lipstick from the Marilyn Monroe collection at MAC at the official store, but I'm sure there are some companies out there with it. I adore red lipstick and the Marilyn Monroe collection houses lipsticks from the orange spectrum to the blue; providing a full range of shades. If I had to choose a single one, it would have to be Deeply Adored as it is more my colouring so I would be more likely to wear it on a regular basis!
The Volum' Express Hypercurl Cat Eyes Mascara by Maybelline has been on my wishlist for quite sometime, not because of its price but simply because I forget to get it when I'm at a drugstore! I am already a huge Maybelline mascara fan and currently use the Colossal Express but am in dire need of a new one!
Champs-Elysees by Guerlain has to be one of my favourite perfumes alongside Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Both scents are not overpowering or sweet but provide subtle floral undertones that smell amazing. It is such a classic fragrance that will never go out of style and the price is fairly reasonable for the branding and quality of the scent.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor has been recommended by numerous people especially those who share my unruly locks. I have been searching in desperation for any deep conditioner that will not thrust millions of artificial chemicals onto my head, but will still do its job and leave me tangle free! Hopefully, Aussie will help.
Pink Fade and Impossibly Sweet lipglass by MAC for their holiday collection are two lip glosses that I need. Not really, but I love them. What I love about MAC is that their lipglass' are so pigmented that they might as well be called glittery lipstick! However, the texture of them is what automatically has me heading for the MAC counter, they are not overly sticky but are quite light whilst still providing beautiful coverage!
Nars Illuminator in Copacabana has been recommended by almost every beauty guru on the net, I used to use tinted moisturiser or white eyeshadow or MAC lustre drops but I am willing to give this illuminator a shot. Although many do say that illuminators are unnecessary and a waste of money, they help to add another dimension especially if the person in question does not possess a strong brow or cheek bone. I hope Nars lives up to my expectations!
Whats on your Winter wish list?
