Winter Wishlist

Winter Wishlist



'Tis the season to make a wishlist, la la la la laaaa la laa laa laaaaaaa. There have been so many amazing gift sets coming out this season that this list could honestly be a few pages long. But here are a couple of things that I've been wanting to try for a while together with some new gems. The total of this Polyvore set is headache inducing and this wishlist should in all honesty be titled the "Never-gonna-happen Wishlist". I will refrain from posting the prices - you can click on the link of each item if you want but it's at your own risk.

Frederic Malle Coffret Collection for Women (195€)
Frederic Malle has recently released three different boxes/"coffrets" contatining generous 5ml samples from the line. I've got my eye on the Collection for Women which includes 15 small bottles of all the women/unisex perfumes. The price of this one is very high for what are essentially samples and I already know that I absolutely hate one of the fragrances (Lipstick Rose) however I love quite a few (Carnal Flower, En Passant, Dans Tes Bras) so a safer option may be to just order regular samples of the fragrances I'd like to try and finally get that bottle of Carnal Flower that I've been wanting for ages. (See, I'm being sensible by replacing an expensive item on a WL with a slightly less expensive option).

I have not read a bad review of the bareMinerals eye shadows and this set is a perfect opportunity to try their eyeshadows together with some other pieces. There are also some gorgeous looking palettes of eight eyeshadows by Bare Escentuals and overall they've just done a great job with their Holiday offerings.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm (34GBP)
This is another product that gets a lot of good reviews online: Beauty Mouth, LondonMakeUpGirl, Modesty Brown are only some of the few who love this product. As I'm using only the Bioderma Crealine micellar as my cleanser and makeup remover at the moment I am a little bit concerned that this may be too heavy but I think I'll give it a try anyway.

Le Metier de Beaute Nail Lacquer Hot'n'Saucy
I saw this polish featured on Messy Wand and just thought "Oh, pretty!". It looks like a typical holiday season shimmery red polish but I like that it's more on the brown side.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon
The new Hourglass Liquid Lipsticks received some mixed reviews online but I'll admit it that seeing the colour Icon on Christina Hendricks made me put this lippie straight to my wishlist. Want. Want. Want.

By Kilian L'Oeuvre Noire Collection 
After falling in love with a now almost empty sample of Ambre Oud from by Kilian I would love to try some other fragrances from their range and this collection of 10 7,5ml bottles of the L'Oeuvre Noire would be a great introduction to the range. The only problem is that By Kilian (currently) does not ship to Slovenia. Not. Cool.

Modalu Zahara bag in Toffee
Modalu became famous once Ms. Pippa Middleton started wearing their now renamed Pippa bag. I'm not really a fan of the Pippa design but Zahara looks like a perfect bag for me: a great balance between slouchy and structured (look at me, talking all fashion and stuff). I am slightly worried about the colour (I don't really have a lot of brown coloured accessories or clothes) and wish it came in a deep red or navy.

Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Bath & Shower Oil Collection 
By now we can probably say for sure that I have a thing for sets of small bottles. This set includes the bath oils from their regular range and I could truly use a bath full of Relax right about now.

Omorovicza Essentials Travel Kit
For this one I can completely blame Replica of Visionary Beauty blog - her skin is very sensitive but she gets along with the products from this brand really well. Omorovicza is a very, very expensive brand and this set of mini sized skincare is not cheap but I think this will be my little splurge for December and hopefully the products will actually do some good for my skin.

Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop and Berry Smoothie
And last but not least, the cheapest item on my list: Revlon Lip Butters. They got released in the US probably a year ago and have just made it to the virtual shelves of the Slovenian online shop Click2Chic and have sparked my interest once again. I think Lollipop and Berry Smoothie would be a good first choice but please let me know if you have any favourite shades from the line.

That's it! I never said this was going to be a short and cheap wishlist. Please let me know if you've tried any of the products on my List and share what's on your wishlist at the moment.
