We are now in the second half of November. I am already excited for DECEMBER!!!!! 😀 It’s that time of the year once again… CHRISTMAS!!! 😀 When I was a kid, I would always have my own list of toys that I would want to receive for Christmas. For this post, I am going to share with you my top ten makeup wishes for this year. Of course, the list would not anymore include toys. Haha! 😛
Tenth Spot: Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick
Picture and Product Description (taken from the Bobbi Brown website):
Keep your foundation looking fresh all day with Bobbi’s ‘On-the-Go’ Face Touch Up Stick. Carry this mini stick in your makeup bag, and use it to conceal any imperfections, redness or blemishes. Its creamy, full-coverage formula is perfect for the cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin (not the under eye area), and is ideal for normal and combination skin types.
Ninth Spot: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Martha Stewart Weddings Big-Day Beauty Awards Winner 2013
Create a perfect canvas for foundation application with this silky, lightweight blend of vitamins A & E, grape seed extract and green tea. Worn alone or under foundation, our best-selling, oil-free primer helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores for flawless skin with a velvety-smooth finish.
Winner of Best of Sephora Award for Best Primer, one of Marie Claire’s “25 Products That Will Change Your Life”, & an InStyle Best Beauty Buy.
Eighth Spot: Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder
Picture and Product Description (taken from the Urban Decay website):
This lightweight pressed powder blots oil and stops shine without messing up your makeup.
Shiny can be really good (when it comes to expensive jewelry, for example) or really bad (when it comes to your T-zone). To curb shiny skin and keep the attention on you for all the RIGHT reasons, use De-Slick, our cult-favorite, shine-stopping pressed powder.
Don’t let the pale lavender color fool you; this baby goes on invisibly and works on every skin tone. Try it on naked skin (if you run into the hot guy at the gym), or over foundation (for touch-ups on the dance floor without destroying your makeup). Because the formula contains super lightweight, oil-absorbing rice powder, you won’t feel the powder but you’ll see the shine-free results.
Because it’s made from rice powder, this lightweight, super-absorbent formula not only banishes shine, but also absorbs oil. Most pressed powders mix with the skin’s natural oils and can end up looking cakey on your complexion, but not De-Slick. And it’s infused with tea tree oil to calm and soothe sensitive skin.
This shine-fighting formula comes in a luxe Lucite compact with a pretty-but-edgy design drenched in our signature dark purple (so you’ll look as good applying it as you will afterward).

Smoothed, moisturised lips are adorned with pure, luminous and deliciously sheer colours.
Rouge Automatique comes in a bouquet of 25 absolutely modern, playful pop shades. As a homage to the history of Guerlain fragrances, each shade bears the name of a cult creation of the house.
