With the holidays right around the corner, I thought I would compile a little beauty wish list of all the things catching my eye. Here are just a few of my favorites and why!

Fresh Sugar Lip Legends: I am a die hard fan of the Fresh Sugar lip products. I’ve owned them a couple times before and they are the absolute perfect formula for my chapped and dry winter lips. Considering I never use the whole lip product EVER, minis are the perfect size for me. I love the idea of getting to try out seven different shades too!

Urban Decay Vice 3: At first glance, I wasn’t sure if I needed this. But now that I’ve seen several reviews and swatches of it, my mind has changed. Neutrals, jewel tones, and smoky shades all in the same place? And all brand new shades to the Urban Decay line? Yes please! 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette: This is gorgeous and Hourglass, two things that make me need it! I love blush and I love the Ambient Lighting formula. I have a couple of their powders that I love so buying a blush palette just makes sense.

Josie Maran Lip and Cheek Creamy Oils: I had wanted to try these out this summer, but in the interest of not wanting a full tube of something that I knew would never get used up, I was holding out for a holiday gift set. Well, my wish has been granted, and these are in a gift set for the holidays! I’m going to have to check them out in store again and see if I still like them as much as I did this summer.

Two BeautyBlenders and Liquid BlenderCleanser: I tried a BeautyBlender for the first time over a year ago and haven’t been without one since. I have the solid cleanser but I really want to try the liquid cleanser which I think would work great with makeup brushes too. This is a great value and I’d love to stock up on these!

Buxom Winner Takes All: I always buy the latest Buxom lip set whether it be the one they roll out for winter or the one they roll out for spring. Berry Blast and White Russian have been in the last couple sets, but this one also contains Creamsicle, Chloe, Sophia, and Trixie. I will have to check out if the four shades I don’t have are worth the splurge in person. I have a feeling they probably are because this is one of my favorite lip gloss formulas.

kiss & belle deluxe LipSurgence Lip Set: This set has four LipSurgence lip tints, two matte tints, and two glosses. They are all small sized but they are all limited edition. NEED!

tarte chic to cheek Amazonian Clay Blush Set: Four limited edition shades- amour, classic, prim, and daydream. I am in love with tarte blushes. ‘Nuff said- NEED. There’s an actual blush palette available exclusively at Ulta that I’m going to need to. 

tarte brushed with destiny set of 5 bamboo brushes & makeup bag: I direly need to replace several of my makeup brushes. This kit comes with two foundation brushes, and blush and contour brush, a double ended eyeshadow brush and a concealer brush. It also comes with a cute little makeup bag to hold them all. If I love this kit I might even get two! 

Of course there are lots of selections right now that I know I won’t buy that still make me drool. I’ll share a few of those with you as well!

The Too Faced Everything Nice set is gorgeous and a spectacular value. However, in reading the description, a lot of the shadows in the kit are repeats of favorite shades from other palettes I already own. After Hours is from the Natural at Night Kit, Honey Pot is from the Natural Eyes palette, Girly and Totally Fetch are both from the Too Faced Pretty Rebel palette. I’m sure there are more dupes, but the shades that most caught my eye are ones I already own! 

Sephora Favorites Give me Some Lip is a phenomenal value but I already own several of the products. Too Faced Melted (Berry it looks like) is in there, making me wish I had waited for a mini size rather than buying a big one! There are two tarte LipSurgence in there and if you know me you know I’m obsessed with that brand. Bite Palomino and Buxom Menace I also own and love. There are several more lippies in there I’d love to try but considering I own so many of them already it’s not as great of a value for me! 

Too Faced Melted Kisses is a fantastic deal and right now is on sale for $25 marked down from $40. Insane! I’m not going to buy this because the shades are Nude, Peony, Berry, and Fuchsia. The only shades I’m drawn to are Berry and Fuchsia, and I already own the Berry so it’s not a great value for me. I didn’t like the way Peony looked on me when I tried it on and I’m not sure about Nude. This would make an excellent gift. 

Benefit Getting Cheeky is an insane deal. A mini of the Sun Beam, Posie Tint, and ChaCha Tint for $17? Shut up for real, this can’t be true. 

I am also waiting with bated breath to see what Bite Beauty puts out for the holidays. They are one of my absolute favorite brands and last year they had tons of cute lip sets. I am super excited to see what they turn out this year! 

Anything catch your eye? Have you bought a holiday set yet? Please share in the comments!

    I must have the Hourglass Blush Palette! The Too Faced Melted Kisses is a great buy. I have Peony & I like it but it doesn’t like my lips — too drying. Otherwise, I would get it in a heartbeat 🙂

    I scope those Josie Maran products out when I go to Sephora and have been wanting them all summer. I’m bummed it’s online only and all the reviews say the tubes are tiny. Tarte lip set seems like a better value. Great picks. Lots of holiday items to look forward to!
