Christmas Wishlist 2012

Hello world! After being M.I.A. for so long I thought I'd come back today and share my Christmas beauty wishlist with you. Although I personally don't like asking for specific gifts, I thought it would be fun to come up with a wishlist so let's get to it!

Dear Santa,

1.   Dolce & Gabbana Rose The One: $66-98
I was sold on this scent the moment I opened the sample I received. As implied by its name, this fragrance is a rose scented perfume. It has notes of Pink Grapefruit, Mandarin, Peach, Muguet, Bulgarian Rose, Peony, Geranium, Madonna Lily, Plum, Ambrette Seed, Vanilla, Amber, Musk, but if you ask me, all I pick up is a blend of roses. I think of it as a mature and sophisticated fragrance perfect to wear for a nice dinner out with that special some one.

2.    Sexy Little Things Noir Tease: $25
I received a deluxe sample of this body mist with my black friday haul from Victoria's Secret and instantly fell in love! Strangely enough I had never before smelled ANY Victoria's Secret body mists, fragrances, or body lotions, and honestly I don't know why. It is described as "a warm blend of black vanilla, frozen pear, and blooming gardenia." I can't really describe it in my own words, but I what I can say is that it is definitely a very flirtatious/sexy scent. This should come to no surprise coming from Victoria's Secret ;)

3.   Fresh Sugar Perfection Duo: $22.50
This too came into my radar through a sample from Sephora during my birthday month and I became hooked. I hate when lip balms claim to be tinted and turn out to just be clear so I was very pleased to find that this product actually lived up to its claims. That slight tint is just enough so my lips don't feel naked and what I love most is that once it wears off it leaves my lips feeling baby soft. Yes it's expensive but once in a while it's nice to pamper yourself, don't you think?

4.    Khroma Khloe's Kardazzle Face Palette: $13
As you can probably see for yourself, the colors offered by this palette aren't anything special or out of this world. We could all easily find very similar colored products from drugstore brands, but as the Kardashian fan that I am, I would love to test the quality of their newly released make up brand Khroma. As far as I know their products can be found at select Ulta's, CVS's, and Walgreen's in the US. I went to my nearest Ulta recently thinking there would be testers out so we could swatch them in store, but I was wrong. So I am yet to try these guys out, and very very eager too!

So there you have it, the best way to win me over is to send me samples LOL I'm just easily persuaded guys, I can't help it! I'd love to hear what made it onto YOUR list this year so please leave it in the comments :)

Wishing you an amazing holiday season,

Michelle <3
