Holiday Beauty Wishlist



With my 60 Day No Beauty Buy continuing on past the holidays I'm going to have to try my best not to buy myself anything this year. So I figured I could make a beautiful little wishlist just in case someone lovely in my life stumbles upon it looking for ideas! If you asked me a year or two ago what I wanted for Christmas, I wouldn't have had a single beauty product on it. Now look at me! Needing two wishlists to cover my beauty and non-beauty desires (the non-beauty wishlist will be posted soon)!

1. A Subscription to Beauty Box Five $12/month
I just love beauty subscription boxes. So when I started doing research and found out there were a lot of really good ones out there, I couldn't help but want more than just my Ipsy subscription. I haven't heard a lot about Beauty Box Five on YouTube or in the blogging world, which interests me even more to give it a shot!

2. Michael Todd Skincare Discovery Kit for Normal Skin $36
Ever since I got my first Michael Todd product in an Ipsy bag, I've been curious to see what the brand is all about. Sample kits are fantastic in that way for letting you try tons of different products without having to pay full price for them all! It's cool that Michael Todd offers kits for different skin types too so you'll be sure to get the right products!

3. REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask $34
My obsession with REN is at an all time high right now and believe it or not, I've never even tried one of their products before. I read so many rave reviews about all sorts of REN products that I had the hardest time even picking one to lust after (hence why #5 is a kit), but this mask seems like just the thing to start my (expensive) love affair with REN. I would love a product that can just get deep into my pores and clean out all sorts of junk in there. This guy seems like the perfect candidate!

4. MAC 239 Eye Shadow Brush $25
I've been lusting over this brush for a few months now but can't muster up the courage to get it myself. Plus I wanted to buy a beauty product as my first MAC purchase before getting anything else. I don't know why, it just felt like the right thing to do. When contemplating brushes I always tend to stay safe and look for my most used brush, the shadow brush. I also want to see what all the hype is about surrounding MAC brushes.

5. REN Rediscover Radiance Kit $58
As I said above I'd love to get this kit to really try out a few different products from REN before investing some serious money into skin care. This kit tackles one of my biggest skin problems, dullness, so it was a match made in heaven. With the sticker price of $58 though, I have a feeling this kit will remain on the wish list for quite a while.

6. MAC 217 Blending Brush $24
The first MAC brush I had my eyes on, the MAC 217. I have yet to find the perfect blending brush as my Real Techniques one is just to flat topped to work the way I want it to. I want this brush. I need this brush. If I wasn't trying really hard to stick to my No Beauty Buy I would already have this brush. Here's hoping some darling friend of mine swoops in and saves the day with this one.

7. Stila "In the Light" Palette $39
This has probably been on my wishlist the longest. I just keep buying other palettes instead of this one and it remains patiently waiting on the list. I love the blue shades that come with this palette as I haven't really gotten into exploring them yet. Plus I'm a sucker for a good neutrals palette any day of the week.

8. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in "Rush" $22
When these beautiful creations came out I avoided them like the plague. I didn't even want to see the color options because I just knew I would love them. When reviews started popping up they confirmed that these beauties were moisturizing, pigmented wonders. I had to include one out of the sheer hope that maybe it'll land in my lap this holiday season.

What beauty products are you hoping to get for the holidays?

xoxo Kayla

  1. I want that Ambient Lighting palette or at least a single (in Dim? maybe? haha) - but of course they all sold out the second the Sephora VIB sale started! :(
