The Makeup Wars Bloggers decided it would be a smart move to do up our Holiday wish lists.  Basically, if any family or friends are reading this and want to tell Santa so I have a little surprise under the tree… you won’t hear me complain.  I might even have a smooch waiting under the mistletoe for anyone thinking of me!

I thought it would be a good idea to pick some “wants” at several price points… just in case my hubby or someone else who loves me equally as much is checking this out!  Keeping it tame, this is just beauty items.  If I would have dove into handbag, shoes, jewelry… well, we’d have been here all day.


  1. Tarte Carried Away Collector’s Set ($54.00).  This set from Tarte has is ALL.  It’s so beautiful and clearly necessary for all of your beauty needs and wants!  Photo courtesy of
  2. OCC Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set ($49.00).  I own nothing from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and I’m DYING to.  This set is the perfect opportunity!  Photo courtesy of
  3. Make Up For Ever Be Your Own Make Up Artist Station ($950.00).  Let’s just be honest, who DOESN’T want this?  At that price point it’ll very likely never happen for me, but I can dream!  Photo courtesy of
  4. Burberry Complete Eye Palette ($59.00).  I’ll take any of them, but the one pictured, Dark Spice, is my top choice.  Photo courtesy of
  5. Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Shadow in Rose Gold ($24.00).  I love the style of the shadow pan and the shade just looks stunning!  Photo courtesy of
  6. Estee Lauder Michael Kors Set ($38.50).  This one is tricky, you can only purchase it with an Estee Lauder Fragrance purchase.  I cannot stand EL fragrance and I don’t know anyone to give it to if I bought it.  So go buy yourself some perfume and then get me this Michael Kors set!  Different sets are available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Dillards, Macys and  I’ll take any of them.  Photo courtesy of
  7. MAC Hang Up the Glamour Hanging Travel Bag ($40.00).  It’s leopard on the outside, lacy looking on the inside and securely holds all of our travel junkies with style.  Hook me up.  Photo courtesy of
  8. Bare Escentuals The Star Treatment Set ($40.00).  I love the pressed shadows from this brand, and the shades in this palette are right up my alley!  Photo courtesy of
  9. MAC Making Pretty Brush Set for Face & Eye ($100.00).  I obviously don’t NEED this, but its so pretty and chic… I just want it to look at it.  I’d never buy it for myself, but would loveeee to have it as a gift!  Photo courtesy of
  10. Le Metier de Beaute CHEM60 Pro-Peel and GLOW10ai Mask Set ($265.00)  I am so totally addicted to this.  It’s easy to do, safe and it works!  You can check out my experience with this product by clicking here.  Photo courtesy of

Oh, drugstore beauty, I haven’t forgotten about you!

  1. Cover Girl Clump Crusher LashBlast Mascara.  I’ve heard great things from fellow bloggers.  Photo courtesy of where this product is currently buy one get one half off.
  2. Wet N Wild ColorIcon Eight Pan Eyeshadow Palette Collection.  I’d love the two palettes I don’t have that released with Holiday 2012 (I think the matte one, Drinking a Glass of Shine, was released before as I <3 Matte) in Sparkle ‘Til Morning & Shimmer the Night Away (see pics at Nouveau Cheap).
  3. L’Oreal Project Runway Electric Fantasie Collection.  Any and all of it.  We’ve been ripe with sickness here so I haven’t really been out and about to get any pieces =( See photos at Musings of a Muse.
  4. Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips.  I always see these and always want to try them out.  The colors just look so pretty sitting by each other.  The set shown above is in Nude.  Photo courtesy of

    Hey gang, bad news about the PH palette. Very pretty, but the ligher colors are very sheer, and the darker colors are kinda hard to work with. If you have patience, perhaps an okay palette.

    Usually PH puts out really good products, this one, not so much.

    The rest of the list, *drools* I am seriously tempted by the Tarte kit. I don’t *need* it, but I sure as heck *waaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnt* it!

      That is so sad about the palette! Boo =(
      Isn’t the Tarte kit gorgeous?! Packaging gets me every time, and it really doesn’t hurt that their products are always amazing!

        I even tried it this morning to see. Yep, the PH patlette is a total bust. I do like their eyeliners though.

        I was just going to order the Tarte kit from this morning and it is GONE!

            Sadly no. We don’t even have a JCP Sephora.
            Oh well.. my first impression was not earth shattering, I think I really just wanted to use my insider’s monies LOL

            the new UD Naked Basics hit the site today, maybe that? I was waiting for it and of course my bucks burned a hole in my pocket and I bought some LM and NARS haha

    Look at you being all practical and having attainable gifts on your list! Maybe I should have done that, but then again, I know my family won’t buy me beauty or makeup items…ever! You have 2 super lists. I really need to check out those LM metallic shadows!
