My Christmas Beauty Wishlist // 2014

I feel slightly hypocritical writing Christmas-related blog posts, because I don't love Christmas like everyone else seems to, and I think November is way too early to be talking about it if you ask me - but nobody ever does. That being said, I understand that people need to stretch their money over a few months when buying presents, which is why my Christmas Gift Guide series is now well under way for the girls, the boys, and the Secret Santas! Today I thought I'd stray away from what other people might like, and tell you what's on my actual Christmas wishlist: the beauty version. Enjoy!

1 - Make Up Revolution Contour & Blush Palette in Golden Sugar // What can I even say about this?! It's beauty speaks for itself I think. Honestly if I was to only receive one thing off this list, I'd want it to be this palette. It's the perfect all in one, and the shades are stunning. Make Up Revolution are one of the friendliest brands around aswell, which makes me want it even more. click here

2 - NARS Audacious lipstick in Greta // Whew okay, this one's a splurge I know. But this is a wishlist after all! These lipsticks are limited edition so they're more expensive than the usual NARS lippies, but they're all sooooo beautiful. Greta is randomly one of my favourite names, and I actually love the shade as well - a match made in heaven? click here

3 - Daisy by Marc Jacobs perfume // I'm a perfume lover, and I've never actually owned a Marc Jacobs fragrance before *slaps own wrist* - but my old house mate had this and I always knew when she was wearing it. It's definitely a classic! click here

4 - Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette // I have the first Naked palette, and I'm sure I've mentioned wanting this one before. Eyeshadow palettes are just so versatile and I think they're perfect for travelling, or going back and forth between being at uni and being at home. click here

5 - Mary Lou Manizer from theBalm // For starters, the packaging is beaut. Even better than Benefit. I've seen a few people raving about this and while I'm not normally one to give in to the hype, this just looks stunning. click here

6 - Bobbi Brown intensifying long-wear mascara // I'm always on the hunt for a good mascara - my lashes are pretty much non existent, and I love Bobbi Brown make up in general so I'm sure this would be fabulous. click here

7 - Sanctuary Spa lip balm // I don't think I've ever mentioned lip balm on my blog before; it's not something that I tend to think about much. But my aunty has this, and when I stayed at her house I tried some and fell in love. It smells divine and it left my lips feeling lush. Winner! click here

8 - Essie nail polish in Jazzy Jubilant // There's no brand I love more than Essie when it comes to nails. I own soooo many of their shades but I'm always looking to add to my collection. This one is so sassy and gorgeous, as well as being perfect for the Christmas party season. click here

9 - Smashbox photo finish primer // I tried this a few years ago when my mum bought some mini tubes of it on the plane once, and I LOVED it. But it's just too pricey for me to buy on a regular basis. Sob Sob. click here
