Christmas Wish List

Surprise post! Hi everyone!

Christmas is just around the corner and I figured I'd put up another wishlist like I did for my birthday. Like the previous one, I'm highly doubtful that people would actually get these for Christmas but I like making lists anyway because it's fun. I'm probably getting some of them myself anyway so it'll be fun. They're all make-up save for two, and some I want more than others.

MAC Custom Eyeshadow Quad

Declaration - I do not own a MAC anything. I've eyed their lipsticks (mainly Plumful and Viva Glam 1) for a long time but I'd also like to give their eyeshadows a shot because there is so much variety. The shade I want most is Cranberry, but I'm also sure on Amber Lights and Wedge, as I don't have anything similar in my collection. I'm still debating on whether to get All That Glitters, Dazzlelight, or Naked Lunch for the lightest highlight shade. I'll swatch them at a MAC counter soon!

NARS Satin Lip Pencils

I've seen these on so many beauty blogs for so long, but never paid them any attention until I saw and swatched them for myself at a NARS counter. I can never resist NARS to be honest! This has the structure of a lip crayon but with the lasting power and pigmentation of a good lip pencil, which is exactly what I'm looking for. I really want to try Rikugien (a 'rose pink') and Mandore (a 'cranberry' colour, and apparently limited edition).

Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation

I've read and listened to the hype around this but never really felt compelled to like it until I tried it for myself (courtesy of my friend from uni, Pau!). I loved everything about it - the medium coverage, demi-matte finish, and perfect colour match. It's quite a pricey foundation but after the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation which was just...uck, I'd rather invest in something I know I've already tried and tested.

Bourjois Cream Blushes in 02 Healthy Glow and 04 Sweet Cherry

I've seen these around while browsing for Bourjois products online, but when I saw it in Alex of The Red Eyeliner's make-up kit, I knew I had to have it. It's so tiny and all the colours are lovely. I'd be happy to receive just Sweet Cherry alone, but I really like Healthy Glow as well. Out of all I think I would want this and the Koh Gen Do Foundation the most.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I've heard about this for years and I'd really like to have this in my night time skin care routine. It seems to do it all really and despite the price, it seems like it would last a long time because you only need two drops for your entire face. I've run out of my Innisfree Canola Honey Serum so I'd like to give this a go next if I can!

Shu Uemura Anti-Oxi Skin Refining Cleansing Oil

I loved my first cleansing oil from Shu Uemura which I mentioned here, so now I want to try out this particular variant as it gets rid of dull skin, is smoothening, and has anti-pollution properties to combat aging. This is perfect as I live in the city, and I want to clean my face as much as possible using something like this. That, and I'm running out fast of my first cleansing oil!

Trip to New York

This one is rather random but this is partially a travel blog after all! I chose New York because I've always wanted to see what Christmas was like there for years. All the Christmas movies I've watched were set in New York and the lights and the snow make it such a pretty place to be. This is more of a lifetime wish so I'll be very excited once this happens!

Thank you all for reading through this! I hope you all have an awesome holiday, no matter what you're celebrating. If you have anything on your Christmas wish list that you'd like to share, please feel free to leave a comment below!
