Makeup Wars: What Would A Beauty Blogger Wish For?

This week, the Makeup Wars gals have decided to share what is on our holiday wish lists! I’m concentrating on beauty only, and you’ll notice a theme. Namely, I go for eye shadows mostly. To me this is the time of year to stock up on those limited edition palettes that you’ll be reaching for year round.

1. Mally Beauty Evercolor Eyeliner Library: This is a QVC exclusive, and I fully admit that I got sucked in by a video that Mally posted on her Facebook page recently, showing how quick and easy an eye look is with these pencils. Mally is the brand I want to try out most in the New Year, and this kit looks fab!

2. Mally Perfect Palette Total Face Kit: More Mally. She uses a lot of these shades in her videos. So I’m obsessing over them.

3. Mally The Perfect Smokey Eye: Notice a theme yet? I like the looks of the shadows in this kit, and I think I’d spice it up a lot with some of the shadows already in my collection.

4. YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick: You know that pic on Pinterest of the girl putting on the perfect nude lippie and it is the YSL? And how most people can wear 1 or 2 and it is ahhhhmazing and drool worthy? I want it. I covet it. And I tried out both shades at Sephora this weekend and it didn’t work on me. I might need to just buy it and really try it out, I think applying yourself is a bit different than using the tester. But I really want the YSL or a Chanel in a perfect nude…

5. Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer Trio: I love to stick one of these in my pocket and just go. I’m running out, time to stock up!

6. Too Faced The Return Of Sexy Eye Shadow: I’m usually all about eye shadow palettes at the holidays, and I love the colors in this one!

7. Stila In the Light Palette: I looooove Stila shadows, and this one has just enough neutral and just enough interesting to make it perfect for travel and every day.

8. Bobbi Brown Rich Caviar Palette: Seriously. Just look at those greens. I think I’ve said enough.

9. Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette in Warm Neutrals and 10. Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette in Cool Neutrals: Yes, I’m cool toned. I don’t care, I think these are both neutral enough (and look at the eye shadows…. ohhhh… my precious….) I think I want both.

    Have you tried the YSL Rouge Volupte formula? I'm a diehard YSL fan but don't care for it. LOVE the look of that Mally set!

    Nice list Christine! I have the Mally eyeliner set from last year and I use them all the time.

    @Perilously Pale- I've only tried it in store. I just get so sucked in to that picture on Pinterest! The shades all look horrible on me. I'm just going to have to try something else super high end. Like Chanel. 😀

    @Teri- I'm really just discovering Mally recently and her products are all amazing!

    OK. I need that Bobbi Brown Palette. Those greens are Super Awesome Fantastic! Seriously. Have have I missed this? Thank you for bringing it to my attention (not). More lemmings!

    Fantastic picks! I didn't know tarte made adorable little lip balms. Ca-ute!

    Pretty sure we all know how I feel about Mally stuff. HA! The nude palette of hers is my daily staple nowadays! I do hope you get some of her eyeliners – the starlight waterproof in Gunmetal is my all time HG liner, for sure!

    I'm wearing Mally right now. The kit I have has an e/s primer that is so fabulous. I'd love to have the Stila, Too Faced and the Bobbi Brown.
    Great picks – all those brands are favorites.

    I feel the same about that YSL!

    Love your list! I want to try Mally Beauty. I haven't yet!

    I love stila shadows too! They have the BEST texture! 🙂 I am also wanting that Too Faced shadow palette. I have that LM Cool Neutrals Color-to-Go kit and *love* it!!! Cutest little purse size palette ever. Plus, the gloss is removable. All palettes should have removeable glosses! 🙂 Best idea ever!

    Whatever LM is calling that first palette, if the photo on my screen is anywhere near true-to-color, those colours are cool, not warm. Amazing how hard it is for cosmetic companies to figure this out. I've seen orange shadows labelled "cool". Uh, no. If it's orange, no matter what shade, it's definitely warm, i.e., yellow based. Really, it's not that difficult. I think the marketing people get in there and just slap any old name on it.

    If I were a blogger and I were part of the Makeup Wars, my post for this one would say "Please see 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic's post." lol Seriously, all that eyeshadow and eyeliner! *swoon* I'm really going to have to try out something from Mally soon. I hear nothing but great things about that brand!

    I own every mally set ever in existance and im still not sick of her stuff. I bought her eyeliner library last year and im almost down to nubs on all of them. I was at the benefit brow bar the other day and all the girls couldnt believe how my eyeliner or eyeshadow (sticks also mally) didnt move. I have all of them on qvc ordering lol, if I can get makeup centered women to switch to mally then I think it will convince everyone.
