Christmas is well and truly on it’s way and I am so excited for it this year, as it’s the first year i’ll be back at home for the festivities in years! Seeing as I love creating beauty wishlists and beauty products and Christmas are two of my favourite things, I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to share a Christmas beauty wishlist here on the blog! Hopefully, if you’re wanting to pick something up for your beauty obsessive friend or family member, this post will also give you some ideas!
First up, there are two items from the Maggs London store/collection. If you’re not familiar with Maggs London, It’s Hannah Michalaks very own makeup bag collection. Obviously, I had to include their brand new High Hopes brush roll (£37.95) because it’s gorgeous, but choosing just one of their make up bags was so hard! All of their designs are beautiful and made with Liberty fabrics, but I thought The Little Moments (£26.99) print was super cute!
I’ve been using Rimmel London’s stay matte foundation for years now and I think it’s time for a change. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my good ol’ faithful, but I really want to try this Maybelline superstay 24 hour foundation! I’ve read some really great reviews over the last few months on the blogosphere, so I think it’s about time I give it a go! Available in six shades from Superdrug for £8.99.
I’ve not worn false lashes in ages, but when I do, my favourite’s are the Eylure 101’s. They pack a load of volume and they’re super sexy, perfect for nights out and I’m sure you all have plenty coming up during the festive period! They’re easy peasy lemon squeasy to apply and I’ve not had one fall off in the middle of the night yet either! I highly recommend these to anyone, whether you’re a devoted lash wearer or you’ve never worn a pair before. This triple pack is available in Superdrug for £14.25
I’m yet to try anything from Bobbi Brown but this skin care basics set looks and sounds lush! The set includes a makeup removing cleansing oil, skin brightening buffing grains, their hydrating face cream and hydrating eye cream! You save £11 buying these items as set so the total comes to £61. Bobbi Brown is definitely high end but judging by some of the reviews I’ve read, it’s certainly worth it!
Another Bobbi Brown product that I’ve got my eye on is their Art Stick in the shade Rose Brown. A chunky lipstick pencil that’s a very Kylie Jenner shade if I do say so myself. Again, I’ve seen nothing but amazing reviews for this product and I think this shade will compliment most skin tone’s and is ideal for people who want to try something a little different but aren’t too keen on a bold berry shade, which seems to be the go to for this time of year. Available online for £20.
As you all know, I’m a big fan of the model’s own nail polishes. When I saw these speckled egg ones on the Superdrug website, I was only going to chose one shade for this post but I couldn’t resit.. so I chose them all! These nail polishes are £4.99 each and come in five shades, which are all named after different birds, which I think is super cute, that include a purple, mint, yellow, pink and blue shade! I think these five little pots of beauty would make an adorable gift!
I’m totally in love with my Elizabeth Arden mascara, but like I said about foundation, I’ve been using the same one for so long that I fancy a bit of a change! This YSL Baby Doll mascara is not only packaged in the beautifully classic YSL signature style, but it sounds bloody great too! Of course, with YSL there’s a hefty price tag, so this baby will set you back £25. If i’m lucky enough to get my hands on one, i’ll let ya’ll know if it’s worth the dolla!
Revlon are always all over the blogoshpere and I’ve tried their ColorBurst Matte Balm’s before and I really like the feel of them and the pigmentation is lovely too. This shade, Striking, is a perfect red for the festive season, right?! You can pick up Revlon products from pretty much anywhere, but the ColorBurst Matte Balm’s are available in Boots for £7.99 each.
There are currently some really great offers on at Superdrug and one of them is this Real Techniques brush set. It’s down from £ 99.99 to just £66.59! A perfect starter brush set for any beauty lover, it comes complete with ten brushes and a black, sleek carry bag too! Deffo adding this to the list of things to treat myself too!
Last but not least is this Soap and Glory Sugar Crush body wash. If you fancy some salivating, go over to the boots website and read the description! I’ve smelt this in store and omg it smells delicious! This 500ml bottle is £6.50. That might seem like a lot for a shower gel but it is a massive bottle, over double the size of most body washes!
So there we have it, my Christmas beauty wishlist/gift inspiration! I hope this has helped at least one of you if you were stuck on what to get your beauty obsessed friend/sister/girlfriend! What are you asking Santa for this Christmas? Let me know!
