So, now that September is drawing to a close it means both my birthday and – dare I say it – Christmas are well on their way. Loads of makeup brands are now releasing their AW2016 Collections as well as their Christmas specials, therefore I have today compiled a wish-list of products I would hope to buy or be gifted.
So number one is the Too Faced Christmas In New York Grand Hotel Cafe. It’s a gorgeous set of three eyeshadow palettes with all smell like warm winter drinks and a mini Better Than Sex mascara. What I love about the palettes is that they’re all a set of neutrals but with a subtle pop of colour and added glam. You also have to fall in love with the packaging. I’d love to buy it just to look at it.
Next we have Jeffree Star Cosmetics latest release, the Lip Ammunition Lipsticks. They aren’t available yet, but they will be come the 30th September and the shade I would love to try the most is a beautiful lilac shade called Popsicle Dream. Even though its coming into autumn, I still love my bright lipsticks and I love the softness of this colour.
Third on the list is a set of brushes that speak to me on a deeper level. They’re from a company called Unicorn Lashes and they are the most exquisite brushes I’ve ever seen. They are the Unicorn Brushes. The bristles are pastel rainbow and the handle is a unicorn horn. Could anything be more perfect?
This next one is a rather big thing, and some may call me lazy for wanting it, but it is the Lilumia Brush Cleaner. It’s basically a brush cleaning machine that does all the hard work for you in just fifteen minutes. I personally would love this. I’m always scared I’m putting too much pressure on my brushes and that I’m going to ruin them, so having something that would do everything for me the right way would just be a massive relief.
Finally on my list are the Lime Crime Velvetines. I know these have been around forever, but in the UK, you’ll actually be surprised about how hard it is to get your hands on them. I’m particularly loving the colour Cement. I’ve been looking for the perfect grey shade for this winter and I think this one in particular will be really good for my skin tone. My lips are also crying out for the Metallic Velvetines. In particular, Blondie, Posh, Happi and Vibe. I love liquid to matte lipsticks so I’ve been wanting to try Lime Crime’s for ages. I’ve heard such good things about them, and also who doesn’t want to buy makeup off a company who’s tagline is Makeup For Unicorns?
What products are on your wish-lists this Christmas? I’m sure mines going to get longer as time goes by but these are the ones I’ve been thinking about most.
