Today I have an awesome collaboration post for you, I asked beauty bloggers far and wide to let me know the one beauty item that’s top of their christmas list – so I could create a massive beauty christmas list of awesome goodies to share with you! Here we go…!
First up we have Katrina from www.beautrina.blogspot.co.uk
I’d love the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine in Rose in Tension for Christmas because I have heard amazing things about YSL lipsticks, and this colour looks like something I would wear on a day to day basis and get use out of. The bonus of having this lipstick is that it has GORGEOUS packaging.

The beauty item that’s top of my Christmas list this year is the ultimate beauty blogger want, The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. Urban Decay are renowned for their striking pigment-packed eyeshadows and it seems the newest palette in their famous ‘Naked’ range is no different. I’m a firm lover of the original Naked palette whose gorgeous neutral shades have become a staple in my everyday make-up bag! I’m so excited by the beautiful rose toned shades of the Naked 3 which will offer me some exciting and beautiful new make-up combinations to explore. The rose gold hues of the palette are brand new and bang on trend and the three matte and nine shimmer shades offer something to suit every beauty junkie! The palette also comes with a double ended shadow and blending brush and samples of the famed primer potion in four different shades if you needed another excuse to purchase!
The Urban Decay Naked 3 makes the perfect present for beauty lovers as the versatile shade range means you can subtly blend the rosy neutral shades for a chic daytime look or load on the shimmer for a glamorous night time look.
The Naked 3 is available in shops in the UK in mid December and I’ll certainly be first in line to get my palette (or hinting to my mum) as this is sure to be a sell-out!

This year the beauty item at the top of my wish list would be the Nars Cult Classic Blusher in colour shade orgasm. This is as I have never tried a product from Nars. Crazy I know, but when shopping I always head towards to my failsafe favourite counters’ and I don’t have a local Nars – the nearest would be London.
I would pick a blusher as that is my favourite beauty item. I love blusher so much due to amount of different shades you can buy and you can always build a blusher up to give you different depths to a colour. This shade is my favourite, as I love pale pinks. My skin completion is pale, so these shades also suit me the most. I have also read so many other bbloggers reviews on this and each review has highly recommend this blusher.
I’d love Origins’ Clear Improvement Face Mask for Christmas as it’s perfectly suited to my oily, often congested skin. I’ve tried a sample in the past and no other face mask has ever made such an impact on my skin – it’s amazing for drawing out impurities and really brightening up dull skin. It’s quite pricey at £22 for 100ml but a little goes a long way with this and for me I think it would be worth it for the benefits for my skin!

The product(s) I am lusting after this Christmas are S Factor by Tigi ‘Serious’ Conditioner with sunflower oil and ‘Diamond Dreams’ Shampoo. I’ve heard so many great things about these products and as I am a massive fan of ‘treating’ my hair and giving it the love it deserves, they sound like the perfect products for me and go straight to the top of my Christmas Wishlist. I’m really hoping that Santa will be extra nice this year and leave them under my tree!

So it has been reeeaaaally hard choosing only one thing for my Christmas wish list, but I did it and the product in question is the Long-wearing true colour lipstick from the Diorific Collection Golden Winter in 038 DIVA.
A gorgeous bright red that reminds me of Christmas and winter. This lipstick it’s a staple and looks elegant and charming in it’s own simplicity. It the typical lipstick that is so gorgeous that is the only thing you will need to wear on your face because it’s likely to be the only thing that would get noticed as beautiful as it is 🙂
This would be an ideal Christmas present for those who love a natural, simple but classy look in a wintery day. I’m dreaming about this lipstick with my eyes open..

I’ve finally had some time to pick what I’d want to put on the list and that’s the ‘Stila Convertible colour trio’ – It comes in warm and cool tones, the photo I’m sending you is a warm one.
The reason I’ve chosen this is I’ve heard soo much about the convertible colours and keep wanting to try them out but can never decide upon a shade and they’re quite pricey to buy a few at once so this little palette would give me the chance to try out three different shades for a really reasonable price (£23). Both the warm and the cool sets have a really nice variety of shades and would be great for travel as well as for trialling the product and getting to know the shades.

My beauty item at the top of my christmas wishlist is the hourglass ambient lighting palette. This is a palette that consists of 3 of hoursglass’ ambient lighting powders. It has one new one – Incandescent Light, and two existing, Dim Light and Radiant Light.
The reason I want this is because I have always wanted to try one and this seems like the perfect way to give them a go! It’s super expensive though!!!
Next is Danni from www.gingerbreadsmiles.blogspot.co.uk
The product I’d love to find under my tree this Christmas is the ginger sparkle shower, scrub & moisture collection from the body shop. I thought picking this set would fit perfectly with my blog as it is called gingerbread smiles. I’m in love with gingerbread men and woman, anything with them on I need to have.
This set seems like just the right gift for me as I love gingerbread and I love the body shop – I would live in there if they let me. Everything in this collection I would use but I am especially interested in the body scrub as I’ve had a strawberry one before from the body shop and it smelt gorgeous. When I was finished with all the products I would keep the tin as it is sooo cute!

The product that is on the top of my Beauty Christmas list is definitely the Origins Mask Marvels Gift Set! Normally, I tend to purchase more affordable high street/drugstore skincare and make up, but after hearing so many great reviews about each of these individual products, I thought this gift set was definitely worth a try!This gift set includes 3 different small Origins masks (75ml); Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask, Drink Up Intensive Overnight hydrating mask,Drink Up Intensive 10 Minute hydrating mask for only £25! So with the cold winter weather on the way, I would love this gift set to help me take care of my skin, making it clearer and brighter, as well as adding some much needed moisture and hydration!

So as a guy who dresses as a woman (it’s a long story, maybe check out my blog to get up to speed) Christmas is a great time of year to get gifts and products that I want. As most of my close friends know about my Feminine side, they do like to mix up my gifts. Usually for my birthdays or Christmas I get a mixture of Beers and make up.
This year I have my eyes set on ONE thing. The Flipstick Colour Effect Lipstick
This is a simply tree/stocking present that I have asked for and expect. I have used it before and loved it so much for really bringing out the vibrancy of my lips and colour. I aim for the Salsa Red this time as last time i had Gypsy Red. The Lipstick lasts a good while and really brings out the colour in my face as I have quite a pale complexion and a big smile. If you girls (or guys Hi!) are looking for something in your stocking this xmas maybe ask for this. Simple and vibrant in equal measure.

Topping my Christmas list is the GlamGlow Super Mud Clearing Treatment. There has been a lot of blogger hype about their Youth Mud mask, and after trying a sample, I wasn’t bowled over. However, when I tried a sample of the Super Mud…. my oh my was I sold! My skin has become a lot oiler over the past month or so, and I’m beginning to get the return of my dreaded acne, and oh boy, did this mask make a difference to my skin! It returned its oil production to a more normal level for several days and really made my skin look more radiant. I only had a teeny tiny sachet with just about enough for one mask, so top of my Christmas beauty list is the full size tub (30ml). It’s a pricey mask at £39.99 from FeelUnique, so I’m hoping I’ve been good and Santa will pop one on his sleigh for me 🙂
And lastly, me! 🙂
I’ve picked the MAC Stroke of Midnight Lip and Cheek Bag in Pink (exclusive to Selfridges)
‘Featuring Lipstick in How Darling! Lipglass in Soft Spoken, Powder Blush in Formal, Slim Mirror and the 129SE Powder/Blush Brush. Packaged in a sleek black and white clutch, accented with gold piping, zip closure and lined graphic interior.’ How gorgeous is this set! I’ve always been a big fan of MAC products and every Christmas they they bring out the most fantastic gift sets – I love the easy to wear pink hues of this set, I know I’d use every item 🙂
Well there you go! Now I’ve seen what’s top of everyone else’s Christmas list, mine has suddenly got a lot longer!! I’d love to hear what beauty item is top of your list?
Big thanks to everyone involved for your input! I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
