Christmas Wish List

Christmas is near and I’ve been thinking about the things that I’d like to receive or get myself this holiday season. By no means am I saying that I’ll receive all of these things but these are definitely things that I have had my eye on and I would be so grateful to receive this year. Now I’m older I don’t really receive that many gifts and I’m totally fine with that, I’m all about the giving than receiving these days. With that in mind, I often buy myself gifts at Christmas time because who loves me more than I do? We all deserve a treat. 

I do enjoy receiving beauty products at Christmas time and from my parents, they often buy me the more expensive items because I’m a student and money is tight. They don’t ever mind and I wouldn’t ever ask for anything that is too expensive. Often I just give them a list of things I’d be interested in and then they decide from the list which is easier and also still a surprise because I don’t know what I’m receiving. 

Firstly, I’ve had my eye on some of the Kat Von D products for so long now and the Shade and Light contour palette is definitely something that I desperately want. I’ve read and heard nothing but good things about this palette and because it’s definitely a high end pricing I’ve not been able to push out of my budget for it. It’s at £37 and I think it has the most perfect powder shades for highlighting and contour. 

With that in mind, the Kat Von D Lock It foundation is known to be such a full coverage but wearable and beautiful foundation to wear. Last year I received the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation from my parents and it just wasn’t good for my skin type at all and would always separate around my nose. From what I’ve heard, this foundation doesn’t do that at all and is generally quite compatible with all types of skin.

I’ve never purchased any of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. I don’t know why but I’ve always been more interested in purchasing the Too Faced palettes than the Urban Decay. However, I have recently become very interested in owning the Urban Decay Basics palette. The other palettes haven’t interested me at all because they don’t have many matte shades in them but a lot of shimmers. Whereas the Basics palette is a completely matte palette and it’s definitely ideal for me since I do enjoy a lot of matte shades and matte looks. I have the Morphe 350 palette with lots of shimmers and I’d love to combine both of these palettes together. 

I’ve been in need of some new clothing for a while now and especially a pair of Vans. The specific vans that I’m interested in buying are the Old School Retro vans in pale pink or black. I’d be happy with either and I really do think I could style both of these  trainers with many outfits. My brother owns them in black and I really like them. They’re £60 or the pink or £55 for black and like I said, I really like them. I don’t currently own any Vans and I’ve never had any vans that are like these and I just think they’re really quite cool. 

This is my Christmas 2017 wish list! I don’t expect to receive these things and I’m sure I’ll eventually get them myself if I don’t receive them. Let me know what you’re interested in receiving this year.

Beauty Wish List

In one month I’ll be flying out to New York for the whole summer and whilst I’m there I will definitely want to buy a few new makeup bits. I’ve had my eye on a few things that I would like to purchase whilst in the States and I thought I would share with you guys what I’m thinking of purchasing when I’m out there. 

Colourpop have become a world known brand and it’s near impossible to get delivered to the UK since the international delivery is so expensive. I’m super interested in purchasing some of the Colourpop single eyeshadows and some of the Colourpop liquid lipsticks and ultra satin lipsticks, especially the shade ‘November’ which is in collaboration with Kathleen Lights. 

So many people have been raving about the Sonia Kashak Soft Focus Satin Matte Foundation and I can’t wait to pick it up and test it out for myself. I love a good Matte foundation and it’s apparently supposed to be really full coverage, so definitely looking forward to getting myself this foundation. 

Tarte has been killing it with their new releases, but mostly I am so excited to get myself the Tarte Shapetape Concealer since so many claims say how amazing it is. I would also really like to pick up one of the Tarte eyeshadow palettes as I’ve heard people say how pigmented and bendable they are. 

When I visited Spain last year with Matt I went into the Sephora but regretted never purchasing any of their brushes. I especially can’t wait to purchase some of the face brushes. I would also like to get some of the Sephora Collection face masks, especially the 

A few other items that I would like to purchase are: 

  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer 
  • Wet & Wild mascaras. 
  • Jordanna Lipsticks 

Perhaps I’ll even get the chance to pick up a few things that I’ve not heard of before. I’ll definitely be on the look out. Give me some recommendations in the comments on what you guys think I should definitely get.
