I am back today with a humongous Weekly Wishlist and this will be my beauty edition. I can also do a fashion post - if you would like to see that also. Anyways, I love me some shopping. Seriously online, in store, I don’t care, as long as I'm spending that money honey. If you know me, then you will know I am all about that life. I can’t get enough makeup, literally. The world could be ending and you will still find me hoarding all of my beauty products. The thing that appeals to me the most is trying new formulas and unique shades, as it allows me to experiment further. I also like getting the chance to play with new exciting brands. Anyways, let's get into it.

This year there are a lot of Christmas releases that I want. Normally I don’t buy into the hype, but for some reason this year, a lot is appealing to me. There are a fair few mixed reviews on a lot of the Sephora exclusives, but I am all about trying products for myself. The main two items I really want to get my hands on from America is the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Palette and the Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No. 20. For me the Kat Von D Palette is completely out of my comfort zone, as it's packed full of colourful shades. I usually wear more neutral tones and sometimes mix it up with pinks, purples, reds and burgundies - but that’s about as far as I go, so the KVD palette is sure to excite me. Then what draws me to this Marc Jacobs beauty is that it's mixed with cool and warm shades - which I tend to lean for more warm eyeshadows. I love both of these brands and I recommend them highly. The only bad thing is that you sadly can't get them here in the UK, unless you place an online Sephora order. I would like to mention that I have purchased from the US Sephora website multiple times and it's really good. I know some people are put off from ordering online, let alone from another country, but I have personally had no problems. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that once you go into the checkout there will be an added cost for shipping and handling (which can be a lot, depending on your order total), but other than that, it's quick, easy and great.

Then some other products I want are by NARS, including the One Shocking Moment Palette and the A Woman’s Face Set. I have to say that the packaging by NARS this year is slightly strange and not holiday appropriate or themed. NARS actually teamed up with the iconic photographer Steven Klein for this collection, which is very edgy and fun. Some of the packaging is rather risque and if you Google the collection, you will see what I mean haha. I have to say they might not make the perfect presents for your family members, but they are unique nonetheless. I have actually pre-ordered the One Shocking Moment Palette and I am waiting for Space NK to get the rest of the collection in, so I can place my order as soon as possible. Next up is the two limited edition palettes from Urban Decay. These babies are selling so fast in America and the Urban Spectrum Palette has already sold out there. So I would say if you want it, you better be quick. I am actually currently on the waitlist for these, so I will get a call once they come in. So I would try calling your local UD counters to put your name down, as that way you won't be left disappointed. Then last but certainly not least, we have the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Oh, Darling - which I seriously need in my life! I'm not too fussed on the MAC Holiday collection this year, but I really want this highlighter, as it looks beautiful. MAC lovers out there will know what a pain the holiday releases are, as you have to stalk the website until the products go live, as MAC are notorious for not releasing the date and time until the last minute, so again get your cards at the ready and be prepared for a long wait.

I hate to admit that this isn’t even everything I want to buy, as I also want to pick up both the Sephora Favorites Brow Raising Brow Wardrobe and the Sephora Jem and The Holograms
Truly Outrageous Liquid Lip Set. Then I want to grab the limited edition Bobbi Brown Christmas Shimmer Brick in Pink and finally, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self-Made Palette. There will probably be other things here and there too, but I am going to try and contain it (somewhat). Yeah right, who am I kidding? I will be back next week showing you more stuff I want. I know this may seem a little extreme, but what can I say? I’m a makeup junkie and proud! I will be placing a huge Sephora order tonight or tomorrow and I will be sure to share with you all my purchases once they arrive.

Lastly, I also want to mention that I am currently deciding what lighting to purchase for my blog photography. I’m not sure if I want to buy umbrella lighting, soft boxes or a ring light. As the majority of the pictures featured will be product photos, I think soft boxes will be my best option. However, if you have any recommendations, please help a sister out LOL.

Finally, let me know what’s currently on your beauty radar?

Speak soon!

  1. The Tarte offerings are so tempting, they're definitely on my beauty radar! Right now I'm pretty much obsessed with Colour Pop cosmetics range, it's so affordable that I want every single bit!! :) xx

    1. Hi Caterina
      Thank you so much for your sweet comment.
      Tarte have so many great products out this year, I want them all! And I totally know what you mean with Colour Pop. I only own four CP eyeshadows (from the Kathleen Lights collection), but I love them! I wish they shipped to the UK.
