Since its officially the month of December, I thought I would post my Christmas wish list. This post has been really fun to compile because I got to pretend that money was no object and that it grows on trees. 🙂 By the way, I am not affiliated with any of these brands or websites, etc etc.
Without further ado…
Aromatherapy Associates Bath Jewels Set $48.00, SpaceNK
I love taking baths, they are such a stress-reliever for me. Its not often that I have alone time since I have a toddler so I try to take baths almost every night. This set by Aromatherapy Associates has great reviews so I am hopeful this ends up under the tree this year!
Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base No. 1 Radiance $48.00, Nordstrom
I tried a sample of this a few months ago and I still remember how gorgeous it looked on my skin. I have no idea why I haven’t bought this yet!
Beautylish was kind enough to send me a sample of Baume De Rose a few weeks ago, and while initially I thought $60 for lip balm was ridiculous, I used it for a couple weeks and now I am obsessed with this stuff! Its very hydrating and it sloughs off loose skin on the lips with zero scrubbing, it just literally falls off. And the shade is so pretty on my lips that I use it daily as a lipstick. Its incredible.
Chanel Camelia de Plumes Highlighter, $72 Neiman Marcus
Most of the Chanel Holiday Collection was seriously underwhelming and in some cases, just plain terrible (eyeshadow quint, I’m looking at you) but this highlighter is absolutely divine and gorgeous and shimmery. Its so finely milled and the shade is a complex mix of icy white with hints of light gold. Me want.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation, $45.00, Neiman Marcus
I grabbed a sample of this foundation the other day and its gorgeous. My skin has been increasingly more combination over the last few years for some reason and this foundation is gorgeous and matte so I don’t have to powder my t-zone. Love! And it has SPF 15 which is better than none on those days when I forget sunscreen.
This brush is so, so beautiful. And so, so expensive. Not as expensive as the Suqqu Face Brush, but still, $178 for a brush is a bit insane if I’m honest. Does that stop me from wanting it? Nope. I have several Z-Series (the cheapest ones!) and they are the best brushes I’ve ever had. I use the Z-2 and Z-4 daily. One day I will complete my Z-Series collection!
Continuing on the ridiculously priced theme, I present to you a nail polish for $50. At first I scoffed at this price, just to have the Louboutin name? No way. Then the reviews and the blog posts came in and I fell in love with the GORGEOUS red color and the staying power. The design reminds me of an ice pick though, and frankly scares me because I have a toddler that is into everything and I’m worried he will poke out his eye if he ever got ahold of this. But this would have been perfect pre-kid. 🙂
Having heard many great things about Diptyque, I decided to check out their website a few days ago during the Thanksgiving Sale. They were offering 2 free mini candles with any purchase and free shipping. So I decided to buy the mini candle in the Lavender scent. Its should arrive anyday now and I’m so excited! Lavender is my favorite scent, it reminds me of the lavender fields in the Pacific Northwest where I used to live, and it of course reminds me of France. 🙂
Fresh Sugar Lip Legends Set, $55 http://www.fresh.com
I have the Sugar Lip Scrub and a mini Fresh Sugar Lip Balm and I love them both! This set is a nice way to have some color along with the lip balm, and this set would seriously last forever.
Sadly this is all sold out and I. can’t. find. it. anywhere. dammit. Maybe one will pop up on ebay. Mostly Sunny has a great blog post about this product though (click here), and I blame her for making me want it. Oh, and Lisa Eldridge too for featuring it in her Christmas Video (click here). I love the dark, gorgeous, shimmery colors with black undertones. Dreamy!
Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Set, $55, Nordstrom
I love cream eyeshadow sticks, so easy to use. These colors are beautiful, especially the rose gold and amethyst. Given that a full-size caviar stick is $28, I think this is a good deal to get 6 for $55. That way I can try out all the different shades without committing to a full-size one that I may end up hating. Since I live in the boonies, we don’t have a Laura Mercier counter so I can’t swatch any of her products!
This set is a great way to try all the different Molton Brown shower gels. I’ve been really into Molton Brown for years now. I bought the Black Peppercorn (is that the right name?) for my husband and he is now obsessed with it. I actually bought him this set for Christmas, but I am going to steal the girly scents. 🙂
The ultimate blush brush ever. Its totally a want, not a need, but its gorgeous and rare and coveted. From all the blog posts I’ve read, I know that there is not a dupe out there that rivals this brush. One day, I will own this! As of now, its sold out on Selfridges and the surcharge is ridiculous on Ichibankao, so for now it will remain on my forever wish list.
Last but not least, Tom Ford Lips & Boys. This is currently available today for ONE day online on Neimans, Nordstrom and I think Saks. Its all sold out on the Tom Ford website. They are mini lipsticks in 50 shades that he has released for the holidays. If you buy 3 of the lipsticks, Neimans includes a cute little limited edition case for the lipsticks. I want Alexander, Justin and John. 🙂 Get your hands on these fast, they are already selling out!!
Happy shopping and Merry Christmas!! 🙂
