So much! Lorac Mega Pro Palette, Nars Audacious lipsticks, Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Set, Hourglass Blush Palette, Tarte Blush Palette, Sephora Give Me More Lip, Marc Jacobs Starlet palette (though that can wait; it’s permanent :P). Too Faced Melted Fig and Candy..

You have basically listed everything I want! ๐Ÿ˜€ Lorac Mega Pro palette, TARTE blush palette, Hourglass blush palette, Sephora Give Me More Lip are all at the top of my list. I also want the Urban Decay Vice 3 palette and maybe a gift set from Fresh (the Sugar balms, but I’m not sure which set I have my eye on). I also hope to get something from Bite, but I don’t believe their holiday sets are available yet. I’m hoping they have something good, specially lipstick or their lip crayons.

I don’t know much about bite, although I have a travel size duo ended lipstick set. They have holiday sets? Oh noooo, that would have to go on my list too!

UD Vice 3 & LTD, the tarte set with the 20-palette, and of course-NARS Holiday collection has 3 eyeshadow singles that are all gorgeous. I also plan to pick up the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadows if/when Sephora does the F&F sale…

Marc Jacobs Sky-liner set, UD Little Perversions kit, DKNY Be Delicious and NEST Midnight Fleur rollerballs, L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Escape set.

There is a rumor of one Tarte Mega Vault or two smaller vaults. If this is the case, especially if there is one mega vault, I asked my husband to get everyone together and buy it for me.

If not, I am asking my Mother-in-Law for Vice3. She refuses to order online and I know she can get that in the store.

I am getting tons of holiday makeup sets, but I save all year and buy them for myself because I don’t trust my family to buy them before they sell out!

I actually have made an exact wish list already of so many products, I know I won’t get all of them, but it is fun to dream…: brushes from sigma, hoola bronzer, naked 1 palette, yes I know I’m late, bobbi brown corrector, Mario badescu drying lotion, this brow kit from anastasia that includes the powder brush and gel, rt blush brush, origins eye cream, purity face wash, ultra repair moisturizer, blush brush from mug, smashbox pore minimizer, Josie maran winter dreams set, mac mocha blush, mac boldly bare lip liner, this too faced bronzing wardrobe set, the tarte blush mini set of 4… Most are staples I just haven’t gotten around to getting yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

There always quite a few around this time of the year thanks to the holiday sets. I’ve already knocked Vice 3, Too Faced Everything Nice, Ciate Mini Mani Month, Kat Von D Star Studded, and the UD mini lipstick & Ozone set off my list. But, I’m still holding out for the Tarte Pin Up blush palette, UD’s eyeliner set, Kat Von D mini lipstick set, that Formula X $55 set (which I can always wait for, it won’t sellout), and whatever blush palette that NARS will turn out. Those are just what I can bet on coming out. There’s always surprises and awesome deals/sets.

the Too Faced la creme lip set, the Marc Jacobs Beauty 7 palette (the Parisianne), and the Vice 3 LTD palette (if it EVER gets released—that’s my OBSESSION right now). I was going to go for either the Tarte Blush palette or the Hourglass one, but I have SO MANY blushes right now…..

I already bought UD Vice 3 and I also want Vice Ltd. I also want to get the Sugarpill Sparkle Baby palette when it come out this week. And I really am interested in Lorax Mega Pro! If the sets are on sale eventually I want UD Black Magic and Ten 24/7 liner sets.

After the Sephora friends and family sale, I’ll be on a moratorium because I don’t NEED anything and we’re saving for other stuff next year. Even at the F&F sale I’ll probably just stock up on a couple of daily items like foundation and mascara and have that be that.

You and me both, Christine, though I’ll probably have to order the colour I am currently really wanting since the Sephora store near me doesn’t have it. Also Nars Jardin Perdu and one or 2 of their new lipsticks (I tried Janet – which I thought I’d love – in store but wasn’t crazy about it; I do want to get Audrey for my daughter and now I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind receiving it either!). Also, the new Clarins eyeshadows – the ones in the little jar/pots. And some fragrance – Grand Neroli or Mistral Patchouli from Atelier Cologne or some more Prada or LaVanila.

Just picked up the Vice3 and can’t wait to get my hands on the Lorac Mega Pro and KVD Studded Kiss minis.
I think after that I wanna look into a few loose eyeshadows/pigments from indies as well as more of the MUFE artist shadows.

Metalic finished of Makeup for ever eyeshadows I have another finished already but still don’t try this yet! and eyeshadows from Ardency Inn

The new Tom Ford fragrance, Velvet Orchid. I love how unusual his perfumes are. Definitely not fruity floral. I’m also eyeing the Guerlain Meteorites. I still have the ones from last season and though I use them all the time, they are still going strong, so I feel they’re a good investment.

NARS Isolde duo, OPI Oktoberfest nail polish, Acqua di Gioia parfum, Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade (not sure which shade yet, have to wait til I decide what color I’m doing my hair first!), and a new foundation brush. I was going to get the Makeup Geek foundation stippling brush, but it’s always out of stock! I bought a 5-pc Airbrush brush set by IT Cosmetics (mainly because it included a foundation brush that looked a lot like one I’d used + loved before) and all the brushes are great, but the foundation brush is just a little too small for my liking. The search continues :/

I’m definitely excited for Guerlain’s Holiday collection coming out in November! Certainly interested in the new Rouge G lippie and Meteorites. They definitely got me on packaging… gold/red and a bow on the meteorites tin! Other than that, perhaps Vice LTD depending on swatch tests, and maybe the hourglass blush set. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder, a Clinique Cheek Pop blush, YSL Taupe nail lacquer and another Laura Mercier Caviar Stick (I recently bought my first one, Khaki, and I’m loving it).

Sephora has a mini caviar stick collection for the holidays right now. It has Moonlight, Rosegold, Amethyst, and Cocoa. It’s $38 and they’re a nice size. Nordstrom has a larger set that’s around $55, but it has the Khaki in it.

Hourglass Ambient Ligthning Blush & Powder palette, NARS Audicious Lipsticks, everything from Too Faced’s holiday collection, Becca pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector, ABH Tamanna Palette, Melt lipsticks and Zoeva Vegan brush set!

Hm. Possibilities: (assuming an ideal accessibility world, LOL!)

The Marc Jacobs eyeliner set! Plus Cabaret ๐Ÿ˜‰

A few of those Ardency Inn Manuaka honey shadows.

Some more UD lipsticks (not the holiday set, but perhaps Lovelight and Rapture)

A few more of the Revlon Matte and Lacquer balms (such extravagance! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

MUG shadows. I have 8 and want like 8 more once they come back in stock. Also need MUG Immortal gel liner. Lorac Mega Pro. Already got the Vice 3. I kind of want Vice LTD but I might pass.

I also need me some Becca ever matte and another bottle of Naked foundation.

Although we haven’t seen all the holiday sets come out yet, here’s my wish list so far: Tarte Pin-Up Girl Blush Palette, NARS Audacious lipsticks in Grace or Annabella, possibly the UD Vice 3 palette, a few lipsticks and blushes from the MAC Matte lipstick collection, and possibly one other blush palette (either the Hourglass one or new Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot). However, we still haven’t seen what other brands are offering this holiday season, so this is just a preliminary list!

mufe m928 artist shadow, lorac mega pro palette, occ technopagan, melt blow, hourglass blush palette, hourglass ambient palette, ellis faas milky lips, the grey armani brow maestro creme thinger, every single thing from illamasqua ‘once’, and some charlotte tilbury stuff (i have not narrowed down what, though.)

MUG Blushes, the Tarte eye liner set, and stocking up on tools. I’m thinking about splurging on another palette this year–maybe a lorac palette or another UD palette.

I’m greedy so uh everything haha.

Basically any liquid matte lipstick in funky colors.
NARS Audacious lipsticks.
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet.
Makeup Geek Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette (hhnnnnnnggg).
Any black lipsticks.
And Bioderma (whyyy doesnt the US have nice micellar waters???)

I’m going to curl up in bed and try to forget about these lemmings

MUFE eyeshadows/”blushes,” Ardency Inn eyeshadows (especially Orchid and Royal), Tarte blush palette, UD Full Frontal Lipstick Stash & the eyeliner sets, Too Faced Everything Nice, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette, Smashbox Cherry Smoke palette, Sephora Give Me More Lip, OCC lip tars, Clinique Black Honey Affair palette.

Now whether I’ll get it all…most likely not. :/

My wish list is a long one….
Dior Jardin eyeshadow palette – the colours are beautiful, especially the teal
Charlotte Tilbury’s The Rebel – not that I need anymore green eyeshadows, but I really love this one!
Nars Deborah lipstick – which you reviewed Christine and I love it
Estee Lauder’s Modern Muse perfume
Bottega Veneta’s new perfume Knot – beautiful
And I am still debating whether to get Guerlain’s Les Gris palette – I know it’s older but that teal/blue colour is angelic.

The Hourglass Blush Palette, maybe the Lorac Pro Mega Palette, YSL lipgloss, and NARS lipstick. After caving and getting Guerlain bronzer and seeing the quality in person, I might add Guerlain meteorites to my wishlist this year ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I just went to Sephora today (to make up for my traumatizing Ulta.com experience last night, LOL) and purchased a couple major holiday offerings, the only things really left on my wishlist are two or three brushes by Wayne Goss. I own two of his brushes already and love them! In fact, I love brush #4 SO much that I want a second one!

I can see why you’d want more of the MUFE shadows, Christine… BUY ALL THE COLORS!! LOL I avoided the MUFE section today because I KNEW I’d get myself into all kinds of trouble if I didn’t! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m pretty covered but I do want Vice LTD because UD brought back ROADSTRIPE in it! Remember me talking about Roadstripe in lieu of comparing the MAC Frozen White pigment? CHRISTINE!! You will HAVE to have it! (I need to see all colors first but.. That was my baby and I have a handful of them left, yet it’s in a palette!!! I’m so happy!) To add, more Korean beauty, and Bite lippies, plus a few lippies from Guerlain, Dior, Givenchy, and Marc Jacobs. ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope UD brings back the sister to Roadstripe! And Hotpants! Fluorescent! I’d also like a blush I’m sure I don’t need. I am looking forward to holiday mini sets not yet released, and only grabbing maybe one thing in each category. They should have a make your own bundle kit. Bastards. Lol, just kidding. PUPPIES will do fine. ๐Ÿ˜€ damn it, Xtine, why mention MUFE artist shadows? Please don’t make me think!!! I have a stomach bug or what the Obgyn likes to contort his face and say,”hmmm, that’s different,” and swell me with relief. Blah! Oh yeah, books & more organizing drawers etc. For my collection.. And somebody to do it. I won’t walk around in the darker recesses here because an anomaly spider is still out there.. I’ve yet to make peace with insects AGAIN… Such trauma! Lol ๐Ÿ™‚
1. LE& Holiday Only deals & amazing collabs
2. Needs like refills and backups
3. Some things don’t need bought right now so I let Xmas in whenever the bells chime! (All year)
A girl can always change her mind… ๐Ÿ˜‰

I still donยดt know if Guerlain will release a special Meteorites edition this year, but if they do, that will most probably be at the top of my list! I would also love UD Naked Loose Finishing Powder, a second Revolution LS and MUFE Aqua Cream in Steel. I’m hoping MAC will come up with a super fantastic holiday collection that includes some lovely Fluidlines and LS – but only if I can get my hands on some, so I donยดt get the “limited edition” panic…..no added stress needed here ๐Ÿ™‚

Definitely a handful of the MUFE shadows! The Too Faced Melted Kisses set, Marc Jacobs eyeliner set, Sephora Give Me More Lip and Becca Topaz Shimmering Skin Perfector and either Vice 3 or the new Lorac palette are on my list too

Lorac Mega Pro, Hourglass Blush Palette, Tarte Blush Palette, Mac Matte lipsticks, Mac Salon Rouge Lipstick, Kat Von D Lipstick Set, Real Techniques Nick’s Picks and maybe the Too Faced Melted minis and YSL Ink Foundation too.

Lorac Mega Pro Palette, Too Faced Everything Nice Palette, Tarte Pin Up Blush Palette, Ambient Lighting Blush Palette, Urban Decay Vic 3, and a few more of those MUFE eyeshadows!! ๐Ÿ™‚

So far I’m wishing for the:
โ—†Nars Laser Cut palette
โ—†Tarte Pin Up blush palette
โ—†Lorac Pro 2 palette
โ—†Lorac Vintage Vixen palette
โ—†Mac Kinky Boots
