My Christmas Wishlist ♡

These are the products I've been eyeing this Holiday season! :)

With Christmas fast approaching, I've come to realize that I do not even own a red nail polish (that's actually quite sad). Revlon Colorstay in Red Carpet looks like the perfect pop of red to have on my nails during the holidays. Me want!

After purchasing a ton of Real Techniques brushes online (you can read about my haul here), and having gotten flawless makeup application results whilst using them (they are hands down the best brushes I own!), I've been wanting to buy the Real Techniques Powder Brush really bad. It looks quite big, dense, and fluffy, and that's exactly what I'm looking for in a powder brush. And of course the reviews are amazing, which makes me want it even more! :)

So I'm not the best at doing the winged liner look (my attempts with liquid liner are always a mega fail lol), but many makeup artists argue that gel liner is much easier to work with than liquid liner. I've heard really great things about Essence's Gel Liner in Midnight in Paris. People compare it to Mac's Fluidline gel liner in Blacktrack, so it must be good stuff! :D

When I heard Lady Gaga was coming out with her own perfume, which she appropriately named Lady Gaga Fame Eau de Parfum, I got super excited! I'm a big fan of hers, and so obviously her perfume launch peaked my curiosity. I tested the perfume the day it came out, and have been in love with the scent ever since! I would describe it as a delicate floral scent with a hint of fruity sweetness. I'm trying to finish the perfumes I own at the moment, but I most definitely know which perfume I will be getting next! ;)

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been lusting over lately?

  1. Thank you so much for mentioning the Essence gel liner! I've been looking for a good gel liner to experiment with because I'm awful at applying liquid liner as well lol.

    1. I'm glad I could help! :) I've never tried applying gel liner myself, but I really want to experiment lol! I've been trying to find this one by Essence in different Pharmaprix's, but no luck :( Let me know if you get your hands on it, and how you like it! :D
