Okay so it is finally time for Christmassy related posts here on the blog, eek. Of course it will not all be Christmas related. It is my favourite time of year. There's something so exciting and magical about Christmas, especially this year with a new baby in tow. I've already got all of Alfie's presents wrapped up and prepared, there's just Josh's presents that need to be bought now. Why are men so difficult to buy for? Seriously, they change their mind all the time, I can't keep up. Anyone have the same problem with their partner?
Anyway, down to my excitement for the festive season that is upon us, I thought it would be the perfect time to share what's on my Christmas Beauty Wishlist this year. Yes, it is mostly(if not, all) makeup related. My Christmas wishlist is seriously long, I actually thought at one point that it would be full of everything Charlotte Tilbury. I am craving a bit of CT makeup in my life right now, all of that beautiful rose gold goodness. Who can resist?
Speaking of Charlotte Tilbury though, I have three products at the very top of my wishlist this year, starting with the Dolce Vita Palette, a luxurious quad of stunning eye shadows with shimmery bronze, gold and burgundy tones. It is absolutely mesmerising. I've had it on my wishlist for so long, I think it is about time I had it in my life after a long wait.
I haven't tried any lipsticks from the two lipstick ranges from Charlotte Tilbury as of yet but I have been meaning to for the longest time. The Mini Lipstick Charms are a perfect way to give the lipsticks a try, and let's not forget how cute and luxurious they are? That packaging though. It's right at the top of my list. I really hope I find it in my stocking on Christmas morning.
And lastly from Charlotte Tilbury is the Bar of Gold Highlighter. I am a lover of a strong highlighter and I love the look of this one. Unfortunately for me it is out of stock on the Selfridges and the Charlotte Tilbury website so I'm hoping it becomes available quickly before Christmas else I will be so disappointed. I cannot miss out on this as it's limited edition. After Christmas it's gone, wahh.
Another highlighter on my wishlist is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Starlight Illuminator which is the most beautiful white- gold highlighter. I've been meaning to buy it for a while but every time I've visited cult beauty it's been out of stock so off on my Christmas list it goes.
Of course most bloggers know that NYX was recently released online at Boots a while ago and everyone went crazy over it. I've been really interested in trying a few products from the brand for a while but I've never been able to find any stockists until now. As someone who loves a strong contour and highlight I knew there was something that I needed to try more than others, the NYX Highlight and Contour Palette. It looks like the perfect palette for me with a mixture of cool and warm tones.
Another palette on the wishlist is theBalm Manizer Sisters Palette, consisting of a trio of the famous highlighters from theBalm including Betty Lou, Mary Lou and Cindy Lou. Sadly my Mary loumanizer smashed into pieces in the pan a few weeks ago, I've no idea how it happened but it is one of my favourites and I need it back in my life. It is literally calling my name.
I have wanted a new makeup brush set for a while but I've never gone for it, I have no idea why. There's one particular set I've had my eyes on, the Zoeva Rose Gold Brush Set. I don't think I need to say much but how pretty are they with the rose gold detail? Rose gold is my weakness.
And lastly is the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. I've seen it used in many makeup tutorials and it gives the most perfect defined cheekbones, not to mention the medium shade is cool toned and perfect for my skin tone. I need.
