Makeup Wars: Holiday Wishlist

 photo makeup-wars.jpg

Happy Hunger Games Makeup Wars! While you were out seeing the latest installment in the Hunger Games series, we have been making our wishlists and checking them twice - just in time for the holidays! I talk a lot about products I'm loving or leaving, but I rarely share what's on my lust-list. Check out what made this year's list, see what other bloggers are after, and let me know what's on your list in the comments below!

1. H&M Black/Leather Imitation Super Stretch Leggings - I really have no explanation for these. I've seen them everywhere, and despite "leather imitation" and "strength leggings" appearing in the same phrase, they look polished and sleek worn with boots or booties and a billowy top. There are definitely some you can splurge on out there, but these are just over $7 on sale - perfect for an experimental piece of clothing that I might not normally think to buy during my annual shop to stock up on staples like v-necks and socks. Yes, my fashion palette is a snooze-fest.

2. Smashbox Master Class Palette - With 28 eyeshadows, 4 cream eyeliners, 3 blushes, 3 bronzers, and 2 highlighters, this palette has it all with Smashbox quality. Need I say more?

3. H&M Ankle Boots - As much as I love the leg-lengthening effects of heels, wearing them in the winter can mean taking your life in your hands once sidewalks ice over. Shooties - or the heel/boot/shoe combination - make it possible! Worn with jeans, tights, or even bare legged if you live in a more temperate climate, these are having a major moment in fashion and I'm loving this pair from H&M.

4. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Showstopper 7-Piece Holiday Set - The Eye-Con palettes from this newly launched, Sephora-exclusive brand have already reached cult status among beauty-lovers, but I can't bring myself to shell out the $59 for 7 shadows. For a few dollars more, this set gives you full size  shadows, lip gloss, eyeliner pen, mascara, and a travel size roller ball Honey Eau de Parfum. A great way to sample a luxury makeup brand!

5. butter LONDON Animal Instinct Get the Look - butter LONDON lovers rejoice! While they've come out with quite a few nail sets for the holidays, this Animal Instincts nail art set is my favorite. It includes a trio of polishes (normally $15 a piece), 2 nail art tools, and a how-to book. It's the ultimate luxury polish-lovers nail art kit!
