Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain

Do you keep a holiday wish list? I have pretty extensive wishlists on Amazon and Etsy 🙂 and smaller ones across a few brand sites like redbubble and MAC. Not specifically for the holidays though.

What are the top three things on it? makeup, books, jewelry

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? A shower curtain from society6, a bunch of books from Barnes & Noble, and a couple things from Sephora.

Yes, I keep a wish list!

Top three: Chanel’s Architectonic Palette, the Wayne Goss anniversary brush set, and Guerlain’s Rouge Saphir lipstick.

I will be receiving the Wayne Goss anniversary brush set for my birthday this coming Saturday!

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral undertones; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

Do you keep a holiday wish list? I keep one in my head. I also favorite those items on the websites I would order them from.

What are the top three things on it? A filled Sugarpill Pro Palette, Elizabeth & James Nirvana Bourbon, and Tarte Tarteist Pro Palette.

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? I ended up getting them for my birthday last month, but they were on my holiday wish list: Tarte Amazonian Blush Color Wheel, UD Moondust and Ultimate Basics Palettes, UD Vice Lipstick Palettes, Juvia’s Place Mini Masquerade Palette, and the Kat von D Metal Matte Palette.

I like Nirvana Bourbon a lot. It is a little reminiscent of Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille to my nose, which is one of my top three or four all time fave fragrances. 🙂

Your skintone/ coloring: Medium w/olive undertones MAC NC37-40, deep brunette, teal-green eyes with gold flecks.

Do you keep a holiday wishlist: Yes indeed!

What are the top 3 things on it: UD Troublemaker lipstick, Nars Velvet Lip Glide set, Estee Edit Gritty & Glow palette.

What was the last thing you bought from it: MAC Saucey Little Darling (OMG! Gorgeous!), Sweet Visions, and Copper Cheek duo. UD Bruise lipstick from Vintage Vault (another OMG shade!).

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Fair with neutral undertones.
Do you keep a holiday wish list? Mmm, kind of? I keep a year-long wish list. But I do tend to purchase things off that wish list more around the holidays.
What are the top three things on it? If I had to narrow it down.. CoverFX Custom Enhancer drops in Celestial, Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick Dup in Opal/Jam, and Urban Decay XX Vintage Eyeshadow in Gash (not a holiday release, but this has been on my wish list for a while).
What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? I bought myself the Bite Beauty Perfect Bite set!

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 with some redness

Do you keep a holiday wish list? Yep!

What are the top three things on it?
– Jo Malo​ne​™ Colo​gne Inte​nse Coll​ectio​n
– Laura Merc​ier ​’Laye​r Up​’ Cavi​ar Stic​k Eye Colo​r Collectio​n (I only have like one of hers so the repetition of the holiday collections doesn’t bother me)
– Bésame Cosmetics Mini Lipstick Set
– I’d add the Anastasia Moder​n Rena​issan​ce Eye Shad​ow Pale​tte but as it isn’t limited edition I’m waiting on it

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? Marc Jacobs Beauty Up All Night Five-Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair skin with neutral to cool undertones and freckles.

Do you keep a holiday wish list? I do keep a wishlist, but I usually don’t include make up on it. I do have some perfumes though!

What are the top three things on it? Any Atelier Cologne (I already own Orange Sanguine, and it’s the most amazing thing in the world), new running shoes, and classic books designed by a particular artist that I am obsessed with.

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? Probably the Anastasia Master Palette by Mario… it was originally on my wishlist, but I just took it off since I purchased it already. I have a policy to not buy too much for myself in Nov. and Dec. so I can have more fun shopping for loved ones.

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair/cool

Do you keep a holiday wish list? Not really; I keep a list of holiday releases I’m interested in checking out mentally but really just so I can see it and decide if I want it and it’s a year round thing

What are the top three things on it? Two things on my to buy list are Armani Lip Magnet 402 and the Tom Ford Winter Soleil palette in cool (if I like the colors – I haven’t seen it in person), no #3 surprisingly.

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? That I bought – CdP Lempicka radiant liquid lipstick and Armani lip magnets in 601 and 602 and the Night Lights palette. That was bought for me – a David Yurman Starburst bracelet from my husband.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair
Do you keep a holiday wish list? Mm, sort of!
What are the top three things on it? 3.4oz Viva La Juicy fragrance set, Benefit Cheekathon palette, Lorac Rosegold Metal palette or Anastasia Master palette
What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly eyeshadow palette!

Your skin tone/coloring: light, cool

Do you keep a holiday wish list? If I really truly want something, I usually buy it after a couple months, so a holiday wishlist isn’t so much of a focus. I usually treat myself for the holidays with a little haul, but it’s just some stuff I chose from the mental tally of lemmings I have running throughout the year. 😉

What are the top three things on it? Melt Spacecake and DoGaf, NARS Funny Face (repurchase, favorite lipstick ever). I wouldn’t run screaming from the Melt Gunmetal Stack either, but I think I’ll use up my UD Sidecar shadow first, as it’s functionally similar (but obviously darker) to Harsh Stone White, which is kind of the focal point of the palette to me. If I still want it after that, it’ll be a really good purchase. Anastasia Modern Ren palette is also really pretty, but I count three highlight colors, which puts me off. I have so many from various palettes already.

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? NARS Schiap. IMHO the quality isn’t quite at the level of Funny Face, but it’s the lightest hot pink that I still find really flattering on myself. I got an old friend the updated Juliette Has a Gun tester set with Another Oud in it, and part of me is hoping she loves everything in it EXCEPT Another Oud so she’ll give that one to me!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm, blue eyes, brown hair with copper highlights

Do you keep a holiday wish list? I keep a wish list year ’round

What are the top three things on it? 3 Bite Amuse Bouche duos: gold/sour cherry, bronze/pepper, rose gold/fig; Clinique Pink Honey Pop; Colourpop’s White Rabbit eyeshadow and Bardot blush

What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? the first two of the Bite duos listed above

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
Do you keep a holiday wish list? I’m guessing you mean a cosmetics holiday wish list? Mine is much more a Sephora VIB 20% off Event wish list and you BET I have one (I just wrote it out on my voucher!)
What are the top three things on it? Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, Nars Gentle Cream Cleanser, Estee Edit Gritty & Glow palettes (and Fresh Umbrian Clay Facial Exfoliant is the 4th)
What was the last thing you bought/received from your wish list? Probably the Anastasia Mario palette.

Skin Tone: Very fair with cool undertones.
Yes, I keep a wish list but I keep it in my head. I don’t have a lot of things on my list because I am sort of an immediate gratification kind of person so if I like it enough to want to put it on a wish list then I usually just go ahead and buy it. Currently I am only wanting the Dior All in One Couture Palette for Holiday 2016, the Bobbi Brown Paris Palette collection and 2 or 3 Nars matte lipsticks.
Last thing I purchased off my wish list would be the Tom Ford Honeymoon palette.

Skin tone: light and warm
Do you keep a holiday wish list? Not this year! I really haven’t been very excited about the holiday collections this season…

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool leaning to neutral, dark auburn hair, dark green-grey eyes
Do you keep a holiday wish list? Yes, a rough one in my head lol.
What are the top three things on it? Bésame mini lip set, Mac Nutcracker Sweet Copper duo, Smashbox lip set.

Holiday Wish List: No I don’t because here in Australia we have no where anything like the access you do to beauty sales/products etc. Also different beauty shops stock different brands. For example, Sephora here does not sell Urban Decay, Too Faced, Nars, Stilla, bareMinerals, Bobbi Brown or MAC. These go to Mecca Maxima, who only have a limited amount of stock.
