Christmas Wishlist (Beauty)

Christmas Wishlist (Beauty)

There have been a few things I’ve had my eyes on for awhile, but have been waiting to get. From eyes, to lips, to skincare I’ve been slowly making a mental list of all the things that’s missing from my beauty inventory. I think Christmas would be the perfect time to treat myself to a few of these items, (and also put them out there for anyone who’s curious about what to get me for Christmas this year).

 

HUDA BEAUTY Obsession in Warm Brown

First up, and of course it’s eyeshadow. But LOOK at this palette. It’s absolutely perfect. It has the warm tones everybody loves, with the soft transition shades, and the staple shimmer shade. It’s basically Instagram in 9 colors. I love it. I need it. Where has this little palette been all my life?

ABH Prism palette

I need the pink shade matched with the aqua shade highlighted by that champagne shade on my eyelids Right. This. Second. The amount of looks in the array of styles you could create with this palette is honestly unbelievable. ABH is coming up with some incredible palette. First, it was Modern Renaissance (which I still need to get), then it was Subculture, and now this bad boy up top? High Five ABH, you may as well be stealing my wallet right out of my purse.

ABH Brow Wiz

I may be late to the game, but I hear the ABH brow wiz is a game changer. I have been loving these pencil type eyebrow fillers. Now that I’ve heard so much about this one, I’m pretty much dying to get my hands on one to try it out for myself. I thought about putting the dip brow pomade in this wishlist, but realized that’s probably not the product for me. These little fellas would be just what I need.

Tarte Shape Tape concealer

I know. All I’ve done is rave, rave, and rave some more about this product. I’ve been wanting it SO BAD. I am pretty much completely out of the Maybelline concealer I’ve been using, and I was about to buy another one before I was like “WAIT! Shape Tape!” I’ve heard Kathleen Lights talk about this concealer, and pretty much everyone else too. I just need to bite the bullet. I will get this concealer. I will own it. One day. Hopefully, that day comes soon.

Tarte Tartiest Double Take Eyeliner

Tarte is like the official bada** of the makeup business. They just are always on top for me. I think I love ABH eyeshadow and Tarte for anything else. What draws me to this eyeliner is the two different tips. You could use the pen tip for your lash line and the felt tip for your wing. A must have. This is a necessity. And I love the gold on black packaging. It’s so chic.

Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion

Everyone and their mother has either used, bought, or heard of this eyeshadow primer. I love eyeshadow but I’m just skeptical of primers. I don’t know why. But I’m dying to see if this primer stands up to the hype. Only, I’m not dying enough to pay full price for it, you know what I mean? That’s why it’s here, on my wishlist. *wink wink*

Too Faced Limited edition Gingerbread Man Melted Matte Lipstick

Isn’t this lipstick the cutest lipstick you ever did see?!? I LOVE the packaging on this little guy. The red tone of the lipstick is the perfect shade for the holiday season. I’ve never used the Too Faced Melted lippies before, so I have no idea about their formulas or wear, but what better time to try new things than the present?

Glossier Super Pure serum

Glossier has blown up. I don’t know what they did, but they’ve acquired a hype I’d be afraid to live up to. I’ve only heard amazing things from them, so I’m excited to invest in a few of their products. The one I’m most excited about is this Super Pure Serum. It’s advertised to reduce redness and target blemishes. Lately I’ve been investing in a lot of skin care items, but I haven’t found any that hide the redness of my face well enough to make me feel completely comfortable in public without concealer. I’m hoping this stuff will do the trick.

Glossier Cloud Paint Quad

I don’t know why Glossier decided to name their cream blushes “cloud paints”. However, whatever made them decide to do it, they made the right decision. When I first heard this name, I was thrown for a loop. It made me do some research on it and that made me watch videos on it, and now I want every single one. I don’t even know if I’ll like these colors on my skin tone, but is that going to stop me from spending my money. Of Course NOT!!

Glossier Boy Brow

And finally, we have the Glossier Boy Brow. This is probably one of their most famous products. It’s the first one I ever heard of. Again, the name threw me off and unlike the cloud paints, I wasn’t interested in this product. But lately, it’s been getting a lot of recognition. I have pretty bushy eyebrows, and this product has been said to be perfect for people like me. I think this, on a lazy day when I don’t feel like using the ABH brow wiz, would be a perfect substitute.

(I do not own any of these pictures on this post.)

Thanks for reading everyone. I hope y’all found some products you like in this post, and maybe even some gift ideas for your loved ones. See you again soon,

My Cosmetic WishList

(For future reference like birthdays, Christmas, or whatever day please come back to this post)

There is so much makeup out there that I want but so little money or storage place for it all. Thus, one more product stays unowned by me in a Sephora inventory room somewhere. Lately, I’ve been more stingy with my money and there’s been a lot of things I can’t buy just yet. So I thought I’d share some of these products with you and could hear some feedback on them before actually making the buy one day. 

  • Glossier Cloud Paints 

    If you’ve been anywhere on Instagram or YouTube these past few weeks you have probably heard of Glossier. They are a smaller cosmetics brand with adorable packaging. I have yet to try out any of their products but this one in particular I have my eyes on. This is a liquid blush and it comes in 4 different shades to suit many skin tones. I love how it looks like a little tube of acrylic paint. Want want want!!!

    • ABH Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette 

      Shoot. Me. I can’t handle this palette. Ugh, everyone I know and their mom has this gorgeous palette except for me and my mom. Who doesn’t love warm tones? This palette is like the concept of romance and elegance in a pretty box. It will soon be mine. 

      • Benefit Brow Pencil

        Usually I gravitate towards powders when it comes to my brows and I’ve gotten sick of it. Firstly, I’ve noticed that sometimes when I apply my powders, some particles will fall into my perfectly blended foundation on my cheeks and it’s so annoying. Second, I hear a lot about Benefit brow products and figure this is handy with the spoolie on one end and the pen on the other. 

        • Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

          Wow the redness on my skin has been getting on my nerves lately. The age rewind concealer I’ve been using is great at light-medium coverage but I’m starting to want more heavy duty stuff. I think this product would be a great fit for me. I don’t really trust drug store liquid concealers that come like this because they tend to be too watery, so I’m hoping a more high end product will be better quality. 

          • Kat Von D Alchemist Palette

            TAKE MY MONEY. Many of you may be wondering “um Emma, what is this strange alien thing you show us?” Well friends, this strange futuristic looking package contains what I believe to be the future of highlighting. 

            LOOK AT HOW PRETTY! This highlighting palette is like a must-have for Coachella am I right or am I right? I was buying makeup once and this darker skin beautiful woman was cashing me out and I could not help but notice the purple holographic shimmer on her cheeks. It looked gorgeous on her skin. I knew immediately it was this palette. That’s when I realized I needed it. 

            • LUSH cosmetics perfume

            Okay so since I’ve never smelled this perfume I really want it for the packaging and the name. I feel like this would make me feel so expensive and beautiful. I’ve had my eye out for their perfumes because I swear everything LUSH sells is so dramatic and clever. Could you imagine? “Emma, I love your perfume. What is it?” “The breath of God.” Yes, I want that to happen so bad. 

            Some of these most people have tried, and if you are one of those people please let me know what you think of them. I’d absolutely love to hear your feedback!! Thank you all for reading. I usually talk about products I already own so I wanted to spruce it up a bit. Trying to keep it creative for you guys. As always, thanks for stopping by. See you Friday!!
