DECEMBER WISHLIST #1 Makeup and Beauty


Hello my Dear Followers!

     I can't believe that Christmas is almost here and my home is already partially decorated for a good week. My family is telling that basically I am a freak because I do all Christmas-y things exactly one month before the real date and so what?! Instead of getting stuffed will all foods in one day, I will enjoy them whole month. Instead of decorating home for 2 days to have it all nice and fancy for only one week or so, I will be in Holiday spirit 4 magical weeks! :) :)
     So today I will share my first BEAUTY WISHLIST post or, in other words, MY LETTER TO SANTA... These are the things I find useful and necessary in my collection, and most of them I am planning to get in the next couple month. I would like to prepare also a fashion and home accessories Wishlist, would you be interested in that? I am a true Pinterest patriot and I love checking out other people wishlists and mood boards.
See my wishlist below, with descriptions and prices of each product. I hope you will find something interesting for each of you!



1. ORIGINS CLEAR IMPROVEMENT Active Charcoal Mask

My skin is misbehaving lately and I am constantly in search of the best solutions for problematic, oily skin with clogged pores. 
This mask contains activated charcoal to drag dirt out of pores and white china clay to absorb environmental pollutants. You can use it once a week or as often as necessary - firstly open pores with warm, moist towel and then layer the mask on skin, rinse well when it's dry.
I have already ordered this mask, and it is waiting for me in Riga.
PRICE: 30 EUR

2. MELT COSMETICS RUST STACK Eyeshadows

Melt Cosmetics is a fine, good quality Indie makeup brand and has taken over Instagram with gorgeous, dramatic makeup looks.
Contains 5 ultra-matte pigmented earth tones - Classic, Antique, Rubbish, Rust, Rott.
I had my eyes on it last black Friday but, unfortunately, it was already sold out. I will be looking for some special offer or coupon code to get this stack cheaper as the price makes the eyebrows rise, little bit..
PRICE: 55 EUR

3. CHANEL No5 L'EAU

YOU KNOW ME AND YOU DON'T. That is the moto of the new Chanel fragrance and it is absolutly correct and appropriate - new fragrance with the soul of the original scent, new creator but very much conected to Chanel, also the new face is second in her generation to model for Chanel. Isn't this fragrance exciting? I love love love it my skin, other versions I really enjoyed on others but never on myself. I have almost full collection of CHANCE so I am ready for the next step - No5.
Described as tangy & fresh, sensual & velvety, vibrant & sweet, L'EAU has addictive top of Aldehydes mixed with citrus, feminine floral heart and warm yet musky base.
I have ton of fragrances in my collection so I will not rush with getting this one so soon.
PRICE: 135 EUR for 100 ml

4. SMASHBOX COVER SHOT EYE PALETTES

I cought my eye on these on YouTube beauty guru TATI's recent video. (Who else loves Tati?) and I was pretty ipressed by swatches and quality of shadows. I know that Smashbox is an OK makeup brand so I never really buy anything from it, but these palettes seems like a nice makeup investment - size is also pretty decent! 
In total Smashbox released 6 different color combinations, mattes and shimmers - Softlight, Smokey, Bold, Golden Hour, Metallic, Matte, Ablaze. 
I would like to get two options - Ablaze (left) and Matte(right).
PRICE: 27.50 EUR



5. ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR Stay-in-Place Makeup

I have heard and read numerous positive reviews about this foundation but never really tried it on myself. It claims to be 15 hour long wearing foundation with flawless finish, that stays fresh through humidity, heat and activity. It has lightweight, oil-free formula and it doesn't change color due oxidizing. 
I am planning to get mine in airport duty free shops in couple weeks, as they offer better prices.
PRICE: 30-40 EUR


6. STENDERS SOFTENING SHOWER OIL WITH SEABERRY

I have a weak spot for Stenders, whenever I visit Latvia I am always buying half luggage with their bath products. I am happy that they started to produce shower oils as that is my favorite type of cleansing product. I adore how nice everything smells in Stenders! And can we talk about the kind sales assistants there - always so helpful but not pushy, they give nice tips and wrap gifts so cute and pretty. I have heard a lot of opinions saying that it is already lame to give Stenders as a gift for Holidays, but my friends know that I will always appreciate and use their stuff.
This shower oil with gently cleanse your skin and leave it freshly scented. It is rich in seaberry oil, that will provide your skin with anti-oxidants and omega-fatty-acids.
I will definately make a proper haul at Stenders shop this Christmas!
PRICE: 9.90 EUR 


7. PRO HYGIENE COLLECTION ANTIBACTERIAL MAKEUP SPRAY

I was looking for a similar product for a while, finally a makeup artist from Riga suggested this one. I really need something to sanitize all my powdery products and maybe even lipsticks.
This spray kills 99.99% of germs within 60 seconds of application without affecting product performance. Once used, it inhibits regrowth of bacteria on the surface of makeup products between uses.
I will order mine in feelunique.com as it delivers worldwide and I had a good experience with it before.
PRICE: 13.10 EUR


8. NYX DARK CIRCLE CONCEALER

As usual I would like to try new concealer options, this time I am looking for something thicker, more covering that would work well on darker skin types as I am lately practicing my skills on Tunisian ladies. This one seems as a nice option as it offers different undertones for different types of undereye darkness.
I am hoping to pick it up in the newly opened Nyx shop in Riga, yay!
PRICE: 6 USD in USA

9. & 10. COLOURPOP COSMETICS LIPPIE PENCIL in Creature & BFF

Let's try more stuff from Colourpop! All my dark vampy pencils look so wrong on me, more purple/dark pink/violet, but I want them to be dark burgundy with warm undertone. I will try one more time with Creature and then, I promise, I will give up and live my life. BFF on other hand - peachy nude, very cute and pretty!
I will order these on my next Colourpop haul, start of next year.
PRICE: 5 USD


11. NYX MICRO BROW PENCIL in Taupe

I tried micro-pencils from BH Cosmetics and Colourpop, both made me very happy, only issue is that you need to order them and then wait. I know that Anastasia Beverly Hills has amazing eye pencils but the price is pushing me away, very very far away.. And then they run out in 5 seconds, because I draw my brows quite intensely. So I want to find something easy to get, not expensive and good in quality, lets hope this one has it all.
PRICE: 10 USD in USA

12. & 13. COLOURPOP BROW PENCIL AND BROW POT in Dope Taupe

As I mentioned before, I really enjoyed this product before it run out. I had pencil in this color before and brow pot but in Honey Blond, which didn't suit my hair color  as it is too warm. Brow pot pomade is nice product for every day, texture is lighter and more foamy than ABH Brow Dip, more for everyday use. (I love ABH but I have been using it for past 2 years).
PENCIL PRICE: 5 USD
BROW POT PRICE: 6 USD


14. & 15. COLOURPOP ULTRA SATIN LIP in Magic Wand & Littlestitious

Ultra Matte Lip liquid lipsticks I am still getting used to wear, but Ultra Satin Lip I really like, it is pigmented, smooth and long wearing. Magic Wand - light nude (left), Littlestitious - pastel dusty pink (right).
PRICE: 6 USD


Look at that beauty, how can you not want it?! Burgundy/neutral palettes are very trendy this year and these shades look beautiful on most of the eyes. Out of all new palettes this is the one that cought my eye the most, plus I am sure that ABH will offer great quality for the price you pay. 
Palette includes 14 shades - 11 mattes and 3 metallics, it is possible to create various beautiful looks, both day time and evening. A lot of inspiration found on Instagram.
PRICE: 42 USD

17. AMAZONIAN CLAY 12 HOUR BLUSH.

By the time I am finishing writing this post have noticed that TARTE has discontinued their Blush Palette, which makes me very upset... I tried Amazonian Clay Blush in my Show Stopper palette. Texture is pigmented but very blendable and matte, easy to apply. Colors are wonderful and complimenting to the skin, yet not too bright. They have issued new limited edition blush set, maybe I will buy it try out more shades. 
PRICE PER BLUSH: 28 USD
PRICE FOR THE NEW SET: 35 USD


So I am done with my list, hopefully I will be able to get most of the products in next couple months. Do you thing there is something I would love and should add to my letter to Santa? Let me know in the comments. :)

I wish all of you wonderful and peaceful December!

Talk to you soon,
Anete.
