Lyn’s Holiday Wish List – Beauty Edition

Hi everyone! The holidays are upon us and my favorite part about them is all of the excuses to go shopping. I love buying gifts for people and I also really love wrapping them in pretty paper and ribbons. In the course of my shopping, I inevitably find plenty of things that I want for myself. Here is a list of some of the beauty items that I am hoping are under the tree for me!


Violett Voss Taupe Notch Eyeshadow Palette It’s always fun when new brands arrive at Sephora and one of the ones that I am most excited to try is Violet Voss. I have heard very good things about the quality of the eyeshadows and the shades in Taupe Notch are a nice change from the typical warmer palettes that we have been seeing.


During the Holidays, Sephora always has some really nice gift sets. These are a great way to try out some different products or have travel size versions of ones that you already love. Here are some of my favorites this year:



Drunk Elephant: Volume 3 Let’s Dew It Drunk Elephant has some really awesome skincare products but they can be a bit on the pricey side. A gift set is a more affordable way to try out some products. This one has a moisturizer, a facial oil and a intensive hydration gel: perfect for dry skinned people like me.


Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Beauty Escape The scent of the Bum Bum Cream is so addictive. This set would be a great gift for pretty much anyone because you get to try the cream, body spray and lip balm.

Bite Beauty Agave Kisses Set I am a huge fan of both the Agave lip mask and the lip balm. I haven’t tried the lip scrub yet but based on how much I love all of their other products, I have a good feeling it would be a hit.


Pat McGrath Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil in Done Undone Pat McGrath just might be the queen on lipstick. I just recently bought my first LuxeTrance lipstick and it is gorgeous. So, of course I also need a matching lip pencil.


Pat McGrath Mothership 2 Eyeshadow Palette So, this is a total wishlist item because it is so expensive. It actually wasn’t really on my radar until I was shopping for a Pat Mcgrath lipstick in store. The gold shimmer shade is amazing in person and the swatches were so gorgeous, I had to put it on my list.

Essie Holiday 11.27.59 AM

Essie Winter Gel Couture Collection I also love to pick out some smaller items as well. One of my favorites is nail polish. I have been loving the Essie Gel Couture line so I definitely want to get more colors. The new winter collection has a couple of shades that are definitely on my wish list. Gold Gilding is a pink metallic that is totally screaming my name. Amethyst Noir is a very dark matte burgundy color that I absolutely love for fall or winter.

Thanks for checking out my Holiday Beauty wishlist! I hope you found some good gift ideas!
