My Christmas wish list

It's the time of gift giving and while I'm always grateful for anything and everything that I may receive for Christmas I also like to make sure that some of the gifts are actually the things I do really want, LOL! We've been doing Christmas, birthday, etc, wish lists for a few years with my husband and it works great for us as it means we get to pick something for the other person that would truly make them happy. Although any surprises are always welcomed as well :)
So after I emailed to Santa, aka my husband, links to the things I'd love to find under my Christmas tree this year I thought I would share some of them with you too in case you're still looking for some inspiration for a gift for beauty loving women in your life or want to get a cheeky treat for yourself.

Christmas beauty wish list
 Although I feel like I certainly don't need more makeup there's something exciting for a beauty junkie like me to get some new lipstick or blush, so it wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't get some new makeup to play with over the festive period.
NARS True Story Cheek & Lip Palette, £39, I'm always drawn to Nars cheek palettes they release every year but I still haven't managed to get one so would love to get this year edition, especially that it comes with the lippie.

NARS Thousand Worlds Lip & Nail Set, £29, I am a big fan of Nars Audacious lipsticks and this set includes two new shades (mini versions) and two nail polishes, all in rich, Winter, festive shades.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Secret Salma, £23, I have three CT lipsticks and while one of the shades is a bit disappointing I still want to get some more, simply because these lipsticks are pure luxury and the perfect gift. Secret Salma has been on my wish list for a while so I'd love to have it in my collection.

Charlotte Tilbury 6 Shades Of Love Gift Set in Ecstasy, £49, another CT lipstick, this time in set with blush, beautifully packaged, it comes in 6 shades, I would like the one called Ecstasy as it has lipstick in shade Stoned Rose which is a beautiful muted terracotta red.

Laura Geller Strawberry Swirl Kit, £45, ever since I've fallen in love with Laura Geller Balance 'n Brighten Baked Foundation I wanted to try more of their products and repurchase the foundation which I've finished, so any kit they do for Holidays would be a very nice surprise for me.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow, £34, OK this might be one of the gifts that I really hope I'll get! This new cheek palette is launching soon and I couldn't be more excited about it, it's cute and the shades look beautiful!

Makeup Forever 'Artistic Essential' makeup kit, £30, I've been wanting to try more products form this brand, especially that it's now easily available in UK, and this set it's a perfect way to discover some of their bestselling products.

Too Faced Merry Kissmas The Ultimate Liquified Lipstick Set, $25, I got this kind of set for Christmas last year and I was very happy to discover the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks which have such a nice formula. This year's set, absolutely cute, contains also the Matte Lipstick which I'd love to try and other shades of the Melted Lipsticks so, again, I'd love to get it.

Kat Von D Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set, £38, how amazing is this set of 8 mini liquid lipsticks from Kat Von D??! From very wearable shades to something bolder and fun. I want!
Apart from makeup I'd love to find some other things under my Christmas tree, especially a nice, little bag so I thought I share with you my picks as you might even treat yourself to one :)

Christmas bag wish list

River Island Black velvet textured foldover clutch bag, £20, I need a nice clutch bag that is a bit bigger to fit in more things then just a lipstick and telephone and this one looks perfect and very chic.

River Island Rose gold sequin fold over clutch bag, £20, this is basically the same style as the black clutch bag above but in this stunning rose gold colour with sequins, isn't it just perfect accessory to a little black dress?? I'm in love :)

Lipsy Black with Contrast Lining Tote Bag, £48, this bag is a  bit bigger but the design makes it very versatile to use it with casual clothes or with something more elegant.

Marc B Quilted Kiss Shoulder Bag, £55, I've been wanting a nude/blush bag for a while and this one is so nice, I love it! Very designer-like but it costs so much less.

Dune Contrast Effect Saddle Bag, £60, currently on offer £38, another pretty black small-ish bag that will go with many outfits and I love how unique the design is.

ALDO Chevron Chain Detail Shoulder Bag In Blush, £50, I've seen this bag before in black and loved it but I like it even better in this nude shade, very Channel-esque :)
What's on your Christmas wish list? Have any of my picks caught your attention?
