I’ve already bought them, I think! The big one was the Marc Jacobs Beauty’ eyeshadow palette! I’m also eyeing a Laura Mercier Souffle body cream set and maybe a philosophy shower gel set…

I already bought the Kat von D Mi Vida Loca Remix palette & Vice 4, and I’m pretty much caught up on the odds & ends of my “wishlist” of permanent products, so I would have to say the 3 NARS/Steven Klein eyeshadow singles.

Honestly, unless something absolutely spectacular comes about, I’m pretty much done buying makeup for all of 2016… I think I’m going to focus on clothes & accessories/shoes for a while…

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick set is tops on my list so far. I already purchased Becca’s Afterglow platte. I was going to add Nars Cheek palette until I read the review and saw the too light highlighter . So I plan to buy the Nars create a palette and makeup my own cheek palette for the holidays.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe (all her matte formula lipsticks in a gorgeous stand up box)

Zoeva Rose Golden Brush Sets (all 4 of them)

That’s it. Though this Christmas is likely going to be a no presents one due to certain circumstances.

1.) MUFE 15 Artist Shadows Palette
2.) Guerlain Meteorites Perles de Neiges! ( with a much desired tube of Air Kiss, too! )
3.) Almost the entire MAC Magic Of The Night Collection!
Worthy of honorable mention: Nars Steven Klein Abnormal Female because I LOVE that nuclear warhead case even if I only love one lippy in it, basically I guess I’m radioactive!
And that Becca trio of highlighters that you showed us earlier today looks like a stunner as well!

I do still have UD Spectrum Palette on my radar….if wishes were horses?

The Charlotte Tilbury set with an eyeshadow and an eyeliner pencil, possibly Smashbox Master Class palette, and Guerlain Meteorites Perle des Neiges. I’m not super hyped by the holiday collections this year, not sure why, but my wishlist is not that long.

My top 3 holiday wants.

③ Kanebo Lunasol Selection de Chocolat Eyes Palette in #02 Chocolat Amer or #03 Chocolat Raisin
❝Their gorgeous, chocolate inspired eyeshadow quads caught me by surprise. I had never heard of Kanebo (a Japanese brand) until this year, but I’ve found that they make superb, luxurious makeup.❞

② Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquid Lipstick Collection
❝Specifically, the ‘Longwear’ lipsticks in Chocolate Milkshake, Chocolate Honey, and Chocolate Cherries.❞

① Laura Mercier Masterclass Colour Essentials Collection, Limited Edition
❝The thirst is undoubtedly real for this one! It’s such a beautiful, large palette and I want it sooooo badly.❞

If only Santa were real. ?
*le sigh

I already got what I most wanted: Urban Decay Spectrum and Vice 4, the Holiday MUFE eyeshadow palette, and the Kat Von D Ma Vida Loca palette. I do still want some Kat Von D crush Metal eyeshadow singles, some Nars Dual Intensity shadows, and three new Nars Audacious lipsticks.

I was thinking about the Laura Mercier Sleek and Chic Palette but I haven’t seen a review yet. Are you going to review it, Christine?

I’ve already bought mine/it – Guerlain Holiday Meteorites. I had Tom Ford eye cream on my list but now that I see what it is, navy is not a good color for me. I was looking at Chanel’s Holiday set also, but I think I might just get a few of the quads instead. Burberry is last on my list – I want to see the packaging and also the latest eye cream they came up with. I saw a sneak peak a while ago and I thought I saw gold and red lipstick, so we’ll see.

Three remaining on that long list: The Becca palette with pressed pearl, some of the stuff form Chanel and Mac’s holiday collection
My favorites so far- The Guerlain Meteorites, Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Book II, and Becca Backlight palette

The products I want this year…? Gosh this is quite a question but I like it so much, too. XD The one limited edition product I would really love to have is the Vice 4 palette by Urban Decay. Lately there’s no limited edition things I’m eyeing on, so that kind of sucks. For the products that are permanent, the top three things I’d love to eventually get is theBalm Nude Dude palette, Lorac Pro 1 palette, and the Too Faces Natural Matte. I can’t get enough with the neutrals and I just have to get more. As blush and lipstick goes, the blush I want is actually a bronzer, too, and it’s Too Faced Pink Leopard blush bronzer and the lipstick is F Bomb by Urban Decay.

I’m so poor right now but I’d love to get either one of those. I’ll drop subtle hints to my boyfriend. ;^)

So many! Sigh…

UD Revolution lipstick in liar/rush
NARS Dual Intensity eyeshadow in Callisto/Cassiopeia (accidentally bought Desdemona instead… sigh.)
MAC Fast Play/Twig
UD Fireball eyeshadow
Some sort of serum for my dry skin that possibly also reduces the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores?

Have you ever tried Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with Retinol? It has a very low concentration of retinol (.01, I think–some of her other ones have .1 and 1.0). It’s nicely hydrating (though I do pair it with her hydrating toner) and the small amount of retinol doesn’t irritate my super-sensitive, super-dry skin. She sells sample packets and I think her website has a free shipping/no minimum promo right now.

The two Glossimers from Chanel Holiday….Rose de Lune and Etincelle. I’m also running out of my Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume. I’m sure I’ll purchase the glosses myself before the holidays lol. My “big” gift is a sapphire and diamond pendant that I’ve been hinting about. 🙂

I already snagged the Bite Beauty matte lip pencil tin- last year that was my one regret of the season, not picking it up! I also reaallly want those Guerlain perles des neiges but don’t think I can justify getting them. We’ll see! If they manage to stay in stock long enough I might be able to grab them during the VIB sale…
And I’m planning to get one of the Becca highlighter palettes. I haven’t decided on which one yet!

I got the Laura Mercier’s body souffle last year ! Pure heaven !
My top 3:
-Burberry fresh glow foundation
-Bobbi Brown Pink Glow highlighter
-Tom Ford cheek brush
And even if I haven’t seen it yet, pretty much the whole MAC x Ellie Goulding collection !

1. Lorac pro palette (by the time I really decide to get it, it’ll be gone .. lol)
2. Laura Mercier Sleek and Chic Palette
3. Hourglass ambient lighting edit (6 pan)

Of course, I don’t need any of this stuff .. I just w a n t .. it.

Monica.

It contains a mini of their kisses lipstick in military red, a mini kabuki, earthy blush, and glow primer. i think there might be something else but I’m not sure?

It’s on Sephora’s website. I got it and it’s awesome!! Basically a set of their best products , in small sizes. The only thing is the powder blush/contour has some fragrance in it, but it’s not overpowering, but something to keep in mind if your skin is sensitive

Thanks! I just checked it out. I got a mini of the Fresh Glow Mini Base in an Allure Beauty Box and went out and bought a full-size after that! It’s the only luxury makeup item I’ve ever purchased, it was that good. Last winter, when my skin looked so dull, that product gave it life. I love it.

Oh, I love that Fresh Glow, too!! I’m finishing up some Becca liquid highlighters, which are great, but I think the Fresh Glow is even better, so when I’m done, I’m buying the full size too.

The MUFE Holiday Artist Shadow Palette for sure. Kristine will you be reviewing the MUFE holiday palette? I am very excited to see how you like it!

Becca. Becca. Becca. I am waiting to see what else they are coming out with for the holiday
Also, MUFE palette- which I will be getting asap.
Either kvd or vice 4- most likely vice 4.
I would love to try laura Mercier, and the Nars holiday set looks promising

MAC Essentials Brush set (I like the bright colors, and I need most of them. I hope the quality is there.)
Nothing else have been catching my eye. Maybe the UD spectrum palette, but I don’t think I would use it that much. It is very pretty.

The Wayne Goss brush set. I dont need it so I cant really justify buying it (even tho I can afford it) but I am into the concept, lol.

I was looking at this set as well! I could do without the face brush with the white bristles, but I really like the rest of the brushes.

I am hoping Charlotte Tilbury’s Advent Calendar gift is released in Canada so I can get that. I am debating getting the Marc Jacobs Style Con 20 palette. I am never gifted any beauty items so whatever I want I have to buy myself 🙂

I would love the CT Advent Calendar but I’m in the US so I know there is no chance it will be available here. Poo. The Marc Jacobs palette is flippin’ gorgeous.

My wishlist keeps shifting as I see more swatches and I’ve not been super excited about a lot of the collections. My top 3 so far:
1) Wayne Goss’ Anniversary brush set (ordered and en route)
2) Something from Chanel’s holiday collection
3) A placeholder for MAC’s Ellie Goulding Collection, one of Bobbi Brown’s Sequin eyeshadows (I already bought the new Harlow Red art stick, red velvet luxe lipstick – love, love), or something from Charlotte Tilbury’s holiday release.

The one thing I really really want is Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix palette. But of course… Sephora US exclusive… Might just bite the bullet and use a shopping service if it’s still available when I get paid! And I just remembered Too Faced little Melted lipstick and blush set! It looks really nice as well.

the navy cream eyeshadow from tom ford (as if i don’t have enough navy shadow), cle de peau holiday and maybe the golden sun highlighter/blush from chanel (though i want to see it in person first).

As far as Holiday collections go, I think most of them have been pretty disappointing so far. My hubby got me the UD Vice 4 and Urban Spectrum for my birthday, or else they would have topped my list. I haven’t fully gotten into Christmas wish list mode, TBH.

1) The MUFE 15 Artist Shadow Palette for sure is topping my list right now.

2) I’m considering the Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Master Class Holiday 2015 Palette, but I want to see/read more reviews before I say for sure. I got to swatch some of it at a Sephora inside Penney’s, but not all of it. I liked what I had time to swatch.

3) Not sure, but considering: I’d love some Sugar Pill palettes, as I don’t have anything from them yet. Phyrra Nyx has me lusting over Aromaleigh’s Fatalis Collection. I’m also eyeing items from other indie brands: Espionage Cosmetics (The Last Unicorn, especially), Fyrrinae, Darling Girl and Notoriously Morbid. There is also some new stuff from Sleek, Makeup Revolution and Freedom Makeup London that I really want.

OMG!! Rachel!! I’m going to be (have already been) spending hours looking through all the Indie stuff you’ve mentioned! Aaaarggg! Those nail wraps over at Espionage Cosmetics — so cool! And the FATALIS collection reminds me of the aurora borealis — so beautiful!

BTW, have you used anything by Makeup Revolution? If so, what are the eyeshadows comparable to? (NYX, L’Oreal, etc..) It has been my understanding that one of their Iconic palettes is a dupe for Naked 3. If it is… and Buzz has a dupe… I need that! I wish Buzz were available as a single because it’s definitely my favorite out of that palette.

I have all but one of the Makeup Revolution Salvation Palettes, and a few of their other eye palettes. I think MR’s shadows are much better than most of the typical brands you find in American drugstores, including most of Nyx’s. They’re comparable to Sleek, if you’ve ever tried them. Or e.l.f.’s new Studio palettes.

I have their Atomic color lipsticks, and they’re good. I haven’t tried anything else from them yet.

I haven’t tried the Iconic palettes, but I’ve seen comparison swatches online, and they look like dead-on dupes to me. Iconic 3 would be the Naked 3 dupe.

I haven’t tried anything by Sleek but I am familiar with NYX. If they typically perform better than NYX, then I think I’d be happy with them as NYX shadows perform well for me. I may have to get the Iconic 3 just for the Buzz dupe. I just received the W7 In The Nude palette, which is also supposed to be a Naked 3 dupe, and the pigmentation is severely lacking. =(

Thanks for all of the info!

Honestly, none of the dedicated “Holiday” releases have loudly called my name since the one I already bought (the M.J. mini highliner set), much to my bank account’s relief. BUT… I’ve had the Sephora Favorites Superstar set sitting in my online cart for over a week, just waiting for my brain to come up with an excuse to pull the trigger on it. So I guess that would be number one on my list for Santa. I’d also love the Kat Von D Interstellar palette, and maybe something from GlamGlow.

Guerlain Meteorites Perles De Neiges, Charlotte Tilbury Rock Chick luxury eyeshadow palette, and …..hmmm … maybe something from Chanel ….

The Mi Vida Loca REMIX palette and Poe lipstick, if it’s not sold out when Christmas rolls around and maybe a liquid lipstick or two from Jeffree Star/another liquid lip brand. I know I want to get one of his sugar scrubs since I don’t have access to Lush here in the Green Mountains 🙁 And the flavors tempt me so T_T

1. Chanel Rouge Noir cream eyeshadow. I already bought mostly everything else from the holiday and fall collections that I wanted: illuminating powder and Golden Sun blush.
2. NARS olive green and taupe eyeshadows from the Steven Klein collection
3. Marc Jacobs eyeliner set
4. Colour Prevails holiday palette
5. Olivia Palermo x Ciate eyeshadow palette

I got the Bite Remix so far! I also got two perfume samplers but I don’t think they were holiday specific!

What I still am contemplating:

1. MUFE Shadow Palette
2. All the Chanel Holiday (Please talk me out of this)
3. Several of the Bite Dual Ended Lippies
4. One of the Fresh sets for lips and one for skincare
5. Sephora Draw The Line
6. Sephora Extend Your Style

Possibly getting sucked into some more skincare sets and the LM Caviar Stick set but I’m waiting to see swatches of it.

The only thing that I really really want is the Guerlain Rouge G that came out with the holiday collection. I’ve never had a Guerlain lipstick, even though that formula is so raved about, because of the price, but I figure it’d be a nice holiday treat for myself, and the color looks so pretty and wearable. I think I’m going to break my no-buy this weekend and get it, since I also need to buy more face oil.

1) The Hourglass with “everything” palette- 6
2) Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream
3) Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation
(and maybe I might even get the lip pencil in pillow talk by charlotte tilbury if I am lucky in a 3×2)

Definitely the new Meteorites from Guerlain’s holiday collection! I managed to snag the Rouge G and the two lipglosses, but I’m saving up for those Meteorites now. I’m also eyeing the two lipglosses from Chanel’s holiday collection.

Guerlain Meteorites – it’s not really on my list for anyone to buy me as its so expensive but I will get this or a Guerlain Bronzer as its the best I’ve ever tried

The only thing of note that interested me so far are my Guerlain holiday meteorites which I’m already using and enjoying in October. The packaging is so pretty. I’m enjoying reading everyone else’s holiday lists lol.

Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Face Contour palette, Becca Champagne Glow palette, MUFE Artist Nudes palette, and lots & lots of Colourpop and Makeup Geek eyeshadows!

I also purchased the Marc Jacobs eye palette and the LM soufflé cream set. AND the LM body cleanser set ,LM eye and bronze/glow palettes. She had different, interesting items this year.
I was really looking foreword to adding to my Tom Ford collection, but the shadow is so dark and the lip so very nude, Im afraid I won’t be able to use it. I do want those Chanel polishes and the Guerlain Holiday Meteorites.

My three biggies on my holiday wish list would be is Christian Louboutin The Noirs Nail Colour in Sevillana, Sephora Pro Lash/Brow Comb, and a 3.4 oz. bottle of Les Creations de Monsieur Dior Forever and Ever Fragrance by Dior.

Estee Lauder Limited Edition Give Every Shade Eye Shadow Palette available online at Macy’s & Nordstrom’s for $49.50! Includes 30 eyeshadow shades, two lip glosses, an eyeliner, and an eye shadow brush. I’m a diehard fan for EL’s lipstick, blush, lip gloss & eyeshadows. I know EL’s not ‘edgy’ or hip but I love their quality, price point, & their shades are gorgeous.

Simple. MAC weightless foundation (or Dior Nude Air Serum, depending on which I will like better), Extra Dimension powder from the upcoming collection and UD set of eyeliners.

Hmmm… I purchased the two major items I wanted already. I also purchased a third item that I haven’t quite committed to just yet. If something I like more is released, that third item is going back for an exchange! I’ve been trying to keep track and, if I’m right, there are a few lines we haven’t seen a holiday collection from yet… and that worries me!

I am really interested in the 1) MAC Pigment sets- although there are only 4 pigments in this years sets, and there have been 5 in previous years.
2) The new Too Faced Liquid Chocolate Lipsticks. I love neutral colors, and I am sure I don’t have anything like that in my collection.
3) I am still looking at all the eye shadow palettes and stuff- For some reason I wasn’t really drawn to anything, but thankfully some new products are still being released.

#1 us the UD Spectum palette.

I’m about to order the Tarte blush palette. I know it’s not too popular around here, but I don’t have any of the Tarte blushes and I’ve recently realized that all my blushes are rather elderly.

I’m keeping my eye on lip sets. I’ll pick one for Santa to bring me. I usually ask him for a Philosophy set as well.

Too Faced’s Chateau, Marc Jacob’s Free Spirit Style Eye-con No.20, and IN MY DREAMS: the Holiday 2015 Rouge Louboutin Lip Colour Collection. It is such a ludicrous price for such a small amount of product, and who knows if the product is even any good (to boot, it is not even my color!), but it’s so so so pretty.
