I love Christmas lit (as I like to call it) from gift guides to things to do and places to go, I just can't get enough of it! By far my favourite thing to gander at or hear about is what's on peoples Christmas wishlists. Not only does it inevitably introduce me to new products that I end up wanting equally as much but it also satisfies an overwhelming urge of intrigue nosiness! You can tell a lot about a person by what they put on their Christmas wishlist don't ya know? On the off chance that you might share my love of lists, be at a loss for ideas or just pure nosy here is my Christmas Beauty Wishlist for 2012. Oh & I'd also like an iPhone 5 (and/or puppy). Clarins Odyssey Eye Palette
This was a tough one as I decided I would only put 1 eye palette on my list & it was a difficult toss up between this and the Tom Ford Eye Colour Quad in Titanium Smoke. That said looking at the colours it's obvious I'd get the most use out of this one. I adore this palette & it's easy to see that it's the gorgeous packaging and (top right) gold leaf colour that really sets this eye quad palette apart. It's one of those products that looks so luxurious that I know I won't be able to help but feel super swish (yup, swish) when using it.
Alpha H Liquid Gold One of the most hyped skin care products of 2012. Recommended by the world and its dog. I desperately want to see what all the fuss is about. Simples.
Jemma Kidd Make Up Secrets Book
RIP to her phenomenal cosmetics line, though she does swear it'll be back! Due to their administration woes the Jemma Kidd website is no more but that hasn't stopped her releasing a new book just in time for Christmas! I've had a flick through online and this make up manual is packed with tips & tricks & looks like a positively epic read.
YSL Touche Eclat Foundation
When I first heard about this I was skeptical, when I picked up my sample from the counter I was dubious, when I wore it for 2 weeks straight until I had scraped out every last drop from my tester? Yeah it was around about then that I knew it was love. I'm BR30, y'know just for reference.
Chanel Coco Noir Pefume
By far my favourite of the Chanel fragrances, even surpassing my love affair with Coco Mademoiselle. With base notes of white musk & sandalwood (2 personal favourites), floral mid notes and top notes of grapefruit and bergamot this is definitely a warm fragrance with a lot of depth yet one that still manages to feel refreshing & not be too heavy (as can sometimes be the case with other Chanel perfumes). The perfect winter fragrance.
Mac Ever So Rich Cremesheen Lip Gloss
I'm currently obsessed with all things lavender or lilac & that love defintely extends to lips. In fact obsession aside I've always been a fan of purple lips in any shade. I'm looking for another gloss to join my Revlon Lilac Pastelle and it looks like Ever So Rich has made the cut.
Ahava Mineral Body Lotion (Deadsea Water)
I recieved a sample of this in a Glossybox ages ago and adored it. It absorbed into my skin so quickly, kept it really well moisturised & smelt divine. I don't know why I haven't got round to buying it myself but I found the sample that I'd been saving the other day & it reminded me to add it to my list!
Caudalie Beauty Elixir I discovered this much earlier in the year and it's been part of my daily make up routine ever since. I'm in need of a refill and it's a little of the pricey side so I'd appreciate some help from Santa! So that's it for my beauty Christmas wishlist! Hopefully if nothing else it's given you a few ideas on maybe what to add to yours! If you've got a wishlist leave me your link below or tell me what the products on top of your list are. xCx
