I’m a little late in getting this up, as there is just too much gorgeousness out there this Autumn/Winter to chose from. I’ve chosen mostly make up, but also thrown a nail polish in the mix as well, as I’m a girl that always needs nail varnish on her nails to hide them!
YSL Gris Underground (38) La Lacque Couture – it’s finally time to swap our summery pink nails for more muted colours and I think that this is the perfect colour to do just that. Part of their Fall Collection 2013, it’s
a beautiful blue-grey. I’m becoming a bit obsessive about grey at the moment having painted my bedroom in this colour, I now want to get my hands on the rest of the house! I’ve never used YSL nail varnishes so I don’t know how they last and if they are chip resistant, but just couldn’t resist the colour.
Tom Ford Bronzer – this is so much of a lust item and never going to be reality as it’s just too expensive for me to justify buying, plus, I’m really happy with my Nars Laguna bronzer, but a girl can always dream. Anyway, it comes in two slightly different colours and has received rave reviews to date. A major downfall of this product I feel is the size of the packaging, it’s just so big and just not particularly handy to keep in your make up bag. But a great product all the same.
Nars Blush in Sin – (€30) – Again, this has received great reviews online so want to try it out. I’m not a great one for a really pinky blush as it just doesn’t suit me, but thought this would be a great Autum shade to try. I know it doesn’t look like much in the palette, but once on, it’s a really nice tone.
MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette – This would be so handy to have in my kit. I’d probably get both the Light and the Medium ones as these go up to NC35 and I would very rarely need anything darker than that. I’ve yet to find the ‘Holy Grail’ of concealers and think these would be great to try and nice and compact for my kit.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer – This is definitely something that I’m going to purchase for myself rather than my kit. I’ve heard that it doesn’t crease at all under the eyes. I’m about to run out of my Bare Minerals cream concealer and whilst I quite like it, I feel it’s a little too creamy for me and by the end of the day, I feel that it’s sliding off, which is never a great look!
MAC Pro Palette for eyeshadows – I’ve got three of these for my kit, the old ones that haven’t got the clear plastic lids, but really would like one of these large ones for my personal collection. I’ve a few of the small palettes but would like to have a large one that I can keep all the eyeshadows in and then transfer them to the smaller palette if I’m traveling or something. Every time I go to get one of these, they have been out of stock, even when I was over in New York earlier in the year. Fingers crossed I’ll get my hands on one soon enough.
Charlotte Tilbury Make Up (www.charlottetilbury.com) – If you don’t know who Charlotte Tilbury is, she is an absolute legend of the make up world, having worked on some of the most famous faces around. She has recently launched her own make up line and it all just looks gorgeous. I must have watched her tutorials a million times over and really want the whole collection, including the brushes. She’s such a natural artist and makes it all look so easy. If I had to choose I think I’d go for a couple of the Luxury Eyeshadow Palettes; Rock Star and The Dolce Vita, the Penelope Pink Lipstick with the matching lip pencil in Pillowtalk, the Rock n Kohl eye liner in black and her Cheek to Chic Blusher in Ectasy. And that’s me being conservative, there is heaps more that I want from the collection, especially some of the brushes! Think a few of these maybe making it onto my Christmas list!
What’s on your wish list?
