It’s already holiday wishlist time and that’s the theme of this week’s Makeup Wars. Just a few of us are involved so that gives you lots of time to read everyone’s post. I’m listing items that I would love to own even if the prices are up there with the stars but also some affordable items.
DYSON has been on my mind lately. The new curling iron made me drool but at $549 I know I’d never get enough use out of it to justify even asking for it. But the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is worth the money. It’s $399 and Sephora has one alone and one in a limited edition set with 4 Quai hair products. It is so much faster and more efficient than any dryer I’ve ever tried.
Also on my mind has been FOREO. I still have my original one but the cord is lost and I have to get a new one. But I saw the new HERE & THERE duo at Sephora and can’t stop thinking about it. It contains the Luna Mini 2 and Luna Play for $139 (a savings of $40). While the Play isn’t rechargeable it’s perfect for travel and is good for up to 100 uses.My true love is cosmetics and brushes so I need to include those in my wishlist. The most hyped palettes of the season are from Huda, Urban Decay, and Pat McGrath. What do you think of these?
HUDA ROSE GOLD REMASTERED ($65) is the one that appeals to me most. It has 18 shades with 8 metallics, 8 mattes, a dry/wet black, and a pressed pearl shadow.
Also very popular, though too bright for me are the new Obsessions palettes for only $27. There are 11 total palettes, 3 of which are brand new. Here’s Amethyst
PAT MCGRATH MTHRSHP Subliminal Dark Star Eyeshadow Palette ($55) looks amazing to me. Too bad I don’t go anywhere to deserve this! This Palette Contains:
– 6 x Eyeshadows in Entice (gleaming glittering gold), Deep Space (smoky matte gray), Enraptured (gleaming metallic gold), Dark Matter (silky onyx sheen), Metropolis (pearlized aubergine), Interstellar (iridescent metallic blue)
Urban Decay has a new Naked Cherry collection and the eyeshadow palette looks delicious.
Lips – can’t forget those. The set that I think would make anyone happy is the Bite Beauty Astrology Mini Amuse Bouche Lipstick Set ($75). 13 mini lipsticks in Aquarius (plum berry), Pisces (muted peachy-orange), Aries (fiery red), Taurus (muted white-chocolate rose), Gemini (red) (intense red), Gemini (nude) (warm nude), Cancer (neutral pink), Leo (glittering gold), Virgo (berry red), Libra (neutral medium brown), Scorpio (fiery orange-red), Sagittarius (electric pink), Capricorn (deepest plum).
Last is just one brush set that would be a cosmetic lovers dream. I’d choose the Natasha Denona 21 Piece Pro Set ($290). This cruelty free set has every brush you can possibly need. I can dream can’t I??
What’s on your wishlist? I also have books, scarves, and items with hearts on mine plus as time goes on more will pop up. It’s always nice to dream! — Marcia
