Christmas Gift Guide: My Wish List from US Sephora

Last year my amazing friends from the US helped me with my Sephora order and I hope to get some help this year.

This will be a  beauty present from myself for myself for Christmas. Last year I was carried away a bit so this year I’ve limited the sum I can spend to  $300 (ok, $350 top)!

So this is what I want to get. Five  of these are LE value sets so I really hope that I will be able to get them.

So after browsing Sephora for hours(!!!) I’ve chosen 4 sets by Laura Mercier, 1 by Benefit and 1 by Urban Decay.

Here they are:

Laura’s Secrets Volume 1 – Flawless Lips ($140 Value), $59

  • 4 x 0.05 oz Lip Stains in Mocha, Shy Pink, Sugar Violet, and Mulberry
  • 0.159 oz Lip Glacй in Pink Diamond
  • 0.12 oz Lip Balm SPF 15
  • 0.039 oz Lip Pencil in Chestnut
  • Double-Ended Lip Colour Brush

Bonne Mine – Healthy Glow For Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette ($110 Value), $48

This ultra-sheer, blendable palette wakes up the skin and gives it an immediate, healthy glow. Customize your look with bronzer, cheek color, and glow for a natural “no makeup” radiance. Inside, there are tabs that fan out to display Laura’s secrets on how to best use the formulas to create standout results.

  • 0.36 oz Bronzer Veil
  • 2 x 0.14 oz Cheek Veil
  • 2 x 0.14 oz Glow Veil

Eye Book ($174 Value), $45

I’ve wanted to try the Bourjois Duochrome Eyeliner in Tilleul  Dore ever since I’ve written about their makeup collection for last Spring.

I loved the idea of duochrome and couldn’t wait to try it myself. I’ve bought mine several months ago and after wearing it for several times I can share my opinion at last.

This is how the design looks like and it is also duochrome as you can see.

This pencil  glides on easily and it’s easy to blend it, the colour is amazing and it is really duochrome as you can see from the swatch below. This pencil changes the shade in different light and angle.  I really like this colour and I’ve been looking for such for quite a long time.

Christmas Gift Guide: Ellis Faas Lights

Lights  is a relatively new product and its the latest edition of Ellis Faas makeup products for the eyes. In my opinion these are the best eye shadows for the holiday.

The package is gorgeous and unique and the colours are to die for, see for yourself!

This is what is written about the product:

“Like practically all ELLIS FAAS products, these are liquid, but they dry upon application, and then the Lights give the illusion of having a small metallic sheet on the eyelid. Because the particles in the product are so fine, it will appear from a distance that the shiny texture is oily or wet – even though it is perfectly dry with a smooth finish, so you won’t feel any stickiness on the eyelids, and they will not build up in eyelid creases. They are available in five shades: warm silver, greenish gold, bronze, lilac and holographic Bordeaux.”

The promo swatches from the website:

The price is €32/£25/$42

Unfortunately I’ve never tried the Lights myself but I would really love to. You can read the review of Ellis Faas range including Lights at London MakeUp Girl. She also has some links to other brilliant reviews of the brand.

And how amazing those shades are, don’t you agree? Which one would you choose?

I don’t write that many posts about skincare because everyone has a different skin type and skin needs. But this week I’d love to tell you about the products that really impressed me recently.

I won’t get into the details, this is just a brief review. I will also give the links to the official websites (click on the name of the product) so that you can read the details if you are interested.

La Roche -Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

This is one of the best cleansers I’ve ever tried. It is fragrance-free and is developed for dry intolerant and sensitive skin (which perefctly describes my skin). It is in a form of fluid milk texture enriched with moisturizing glycerine.

It gently removes the makeup and prevents skin from dehydration and irritation. I absolutely loved it, in fact, I’ve heard only good things about this cleanser. Although it is made for dry skin I know people with oily skin who use it and love.

I would highly recommend you this cleanser if you have sensitive skin.

Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream

This is the other products that I’ve been loving a lot lately. It has an amazing scent of

Want It: Objects of Desire LipFusion Color Shine

I’ve heard a lot of positive feedbacks about LipFushion glosses but I’ve never tried these myself unfortunately. But  after I saw these LE LipFusion glosses I want to try them even more. I hope we will get them here. You can already get these in the US for $29 each.

“A shimmering shade packaged in a vintage-inspired metallic floral motif.”

Shades that are avilable (the same order as on the photo):

  • Posh
  • Show Off
  • Rhinestone
  • 24k

It is important to know that Fusion Beauty Colorceuticals will donate $1 from the sale of every Objects of Desire LipFusion Color Shine to help women work their way out of poverty.

I’d really love to get Rhinestone and 24k.

You also need to know that now you can also get some value sets of these glosses which are available for holiday!
