Marissa's Wish List
I love the holiday season. All the cosmetic companies come out with such great gifts, especially color gifts! If I had a million dollars, or even $200.00, here's a few of the things that I would buy!
Christian Dior Colour Couture, retailing for $68.50, is a FABULOUS red cosmetic bag with a big buckle that when I buy I will use as my night out clutch! Tacky, maybe, but I want the collection for the bag alone! However, the cosmetics in the bag are great too. There is a full size five color eyeshadow palette in a flattering neutral tone, a soft pinky lipstick, Rose Souffle, a sample of Ultimeye Mascara in black, a mini blush in # 894 and a sample of Pure Poison. All in all, a very good deal. You can buy this at Saks.
YSL Collection Eyeliner looks fun for the holidays. It comes with three small jars of creamy liquid for lining and shadowing. The three colors are a neutral sand, a medium rose/bronze and a silver black. All are shimmery and the collection comes with a long brush handle and three attachments…one thin for lining, one slanted for shaping and one eye shadow brush. It might seem pricey at $70.00, but for what you get, I think it's a pretty good deal! Again, you can buy this at Saks or anywhere they sell YSL.
Guerlain Divinora Precious Colours Eyes, Lips, Cheek Palette in Gold Radiance will take you through the holidays and into spring. This is a beautiful creamy collection of color. The eyeliner is gorgeous, a shimmery black/gold that would be beautiful over another eyeliner. The other eye color is a glittery clear color to go over eyes or cheeks. The lip/cheek colors are a gold glitter gloss and a creamy nude color. The compact is a stunner too, a silver/black case with a 3d thumb print as the cover. It's hard to describe, but let me say, people will ask about your compact when you pull this one out! Guerlain can be purchased at Saks and Lord & Taylor, as well as other department stores.
Lorac Licked*Kissed*Bitten Lip Polish Collection are 8 tiny, little nail polish sized bottles of lip gloss. My two favorites are LKB 4, Hot Pink Shimmer, and LBK 2, Rose Shimmer. I love a gift that lets you try lots of different things without costing you an arm and a leg, and for $25.00 this fits the bill. This would make a great stocking stuffer or, you could be like me and give a few away to friends and still keep one or two for yourself! All the glosses smell minty and wouldn't take up a lot of room in your evening bag. Lorac Cosmetics are at Sephora and Sephora.com.
Guerlain Midnight Secret is a late night treatment that was explained to me to be geared towards clubbers who need to look refreshed with only a few hours sleep. Well, I don't go out much anymore since I can't stay awake past 10, but I do get up in the middle of the night with the baby so I thought I would give this a try. WOW - I have to tell you, this is the gift that I think I will buy myself! I put this on at 3 am when I was up changing diapers and my skin really did look good when I woke up. And then I tried it again after having sick kids up half the night, and I have to say, my skin looked rested, no baggy eyes, no sallow skin or that tired look your skin can have after a long night. My skin felt moisturized and soft, and looked so good that I didn't put any foundation or powder on during the day! That's some treatment!
I hope my family reads my list…I'll be disappointed if one of these items isn't under the tree... hmmm... I better go out and buy a few for myself just in case!
Happy shopping and Happy Holidays!
