If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably been awaiting this post as it happens every Christmas and every birthday. It has become mine and my dad’s tradition to go makeup shopping twice a year for my present, heading up to London and having a day looking around all the makeup stands. It’s glorious. I particularly love our Christmas shop as I love London when it’s all festive plus there are some great gift sets which I sometimes pick. My wish list is as relaxed as ever, I’ve got a few ideas and a few definites but please shout any last minute recommendations at me before we go tomorrow!

Urban Decay Heat Palette
This is the one that I definitely want to get. I’ve been wanting the Heat palette since the press photos were initially released and I knew I could just about hang on to Christmas to pick this up on our shopping day. I honestly cannot wait to have this in my life!

Hourglass Blush in Mood Exposure
I really want a new blush and one of my favourite formulas is the Hourglass one. I’m not sure which shade I’ll pick up as I’ll see when I swatch, but I’ve had my eye on Mood Exposure for a while so it may be this one. Alternatively, I might get a new NARS blush as I always love them too. I’ll see how things go.

Fenty Beauty Highlighter Duo
Now I really want to get some Fenty Beauty but apparently, there are still queues outside of Harvey Nichols – such a pain! I’ll see what the situation is like in the morning but if I do manage to get in there I definitely want to pick up a highlighter duo. I also wouldn’t mind trying the foundation!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral
I’ve had my Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Berry and it’s one of my favourite tinted lip balms ever. It smells delicious, is a gorgeous pigmented shade and most importantly, is really nourishing. I definitely fancy picking up another shade!

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder
I’ve wanted this for so damn long, mainly because my faves Gemma and Jodie love it so much and tomorrow might finally be the time when I get my hands on it. It is an expensive one so I don’t want to blow too much of my budget on one thing – we shall see.

Cover FX Custom Drops
Again, this one is a pricey purchase for what it is so I’m really not sure whether to get one. Please let me know if you have any dupe recommendations as I know there are a fair few of them out there.

Stila Magnificent Metals
I think I’ve missed the boat with that gorgeous trio set of these as it seems to be out of stock everywhere, but you never know maybe I’ll stumble across is somewhere! If not, I’m still tempted to pick up one as these just look beautiful.

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick
Last but not least, I’ll definitely be visiting the Charlotte Tilbury stand in Selfridges as I always have about 50,000 lipsticks from her on my wish list. I must say I love the look of the new limited edition English Beauty shade so might have to swatch that one!

Please let me know your recommendations!
