This week our Makeup Wars bloggers are making out our Holiday wishlists. Keep in mind beauties, this is a WISHlist so I decided to go big with some of these prices. A girl can dream, right? I’m really excited to see what the rest of our bloggers chose–I may have left something out!

1385336869_s1566264-main-heroMy Clarisonic finally bit the dust after 6 years! Yes, I bought my Clarisonic in 2007 so it had a good life–we had a small, nice goodbye ceremony. Sorry original, but I can’t be without a replacement–just know you will always be my first. This time I’m opting for the smaller Mia. This gift set from Sephora looks great!
1385336734_s1553080-main-heroAmorePacific Future Response Day and Night Kit ($195) – I have only had the opportunity to try a few samples from this company, but I was very impressed so I would love to try more! Also, my friend PinkSith loves this line so that is an endorsement I trust!
1385336598_s1551365-main-heroFresh Sugar Treasures $50) I love, love, love these great lip balms–they feel like buttah on lips and come in fabulous colors. This is the very best of the collection!
1385324450_s1380625-main-heroCalisa Tools Set of 12 Hot Rollers ($99) – I really want to try hot rollers on my fine hair to see if I can get more bounce and I’ve heard these are the best.
1385324039_04227lrgChantecaille Wild Horses Palette ($83) –  this striking, yet natural palette features three eye shades, Palomino- a soft, creamy beige, Mustang- a warm chestnut brown, and Black Stallion- a midnight black liner with a whisper of shimmer along with Freedom Cheek shade Sunset Pink. A percentage of proceeds of every Wild Horses Palette sold will be proudly donated to The Humane Society of the United States to help keep our wild horses free to roam. I adore Chantecaille palettes but they are just too spendy for me.
1385322986__8204443Betsey Johnson Faux Fur Collar Tweed Coat ($178) – Which came first? Living in cold weather gave me a love of coats or loving coats I’m lucky I get to have lots because I live in cold weather? No matter, I love coats period. I think this Betsey Johnson one is especially cute with the detachable faux fur collar. The solid color side panels are slimming and the nubby herringbone tweed is sparked with a subtle metallic shine. In true Betsey style, even the buttons are feminine–heart shaped twist locks!
1385322707_s1548395-main-heroMarc Jacobs Showstopper 7-pc. Holiday Set ($89) – Pick up this ultimate gift for the Marc enthusiast in your life, or indulge in luxury and take this chic set home for yourself. This set of star performers and new rising stars features brand new Style Eye-con No.3 in The Star and Lust for Lacquer Sheer Lip Vinyl in Kiss, as well as the classic Magic Marc’er, Lash Lifter, and Honey Eau de Parfum, plus a sleek, portable mirror, all in an original makeup bag designed by Marc Jacobs. I love my Marc Jacobs Starlet palette so I would love to try more Marc Jacobs products.

1385321703_s1555846-main-heroGuerlain Crazy Pearls Illuminating Powder ($58) – Guerlain’s Meteorites Pearls intelligently capture light to create a more luminous and even skin tone in one sweep of the brush. Meteorites Pearls offer a new combination of beige, pink, white, and gold. All six shades work to create the collection’s iconic luminous finish, while the prominent pink and gold tones emphasize an energetic glow. I would REALLY like to try these and see if they are all that and a bag of chips like everyone says!

From our partners


  1. The butter London set is so pretty. I’d love that even though I have some of the shades in it. I should have thought beyond makeup but once I started on cosmetics – well my mind wouldn’t let go. Great list especially Marc Jacobs!

  2. The Betsy Johnson Faux Fur Collar Tweed Coat. Amazing. I am a coat hoarder and that would fit in well with my collection 😉

  3. Your list is awesome! In fact we have the same Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment set! I already have the Chantecaille Wild Horses palette, but …I have only photographed it. I have not actually touched the powders, yet! LOL

  4. I’ve been looking for a good set of hot rollers. Thanks for the rec. The ones I want from Mark Hill Hair aren’t being sold in the US yet. Hopefully sometime next year.

  5. Nice Wishlist Cindy! You must get another Clarisonic; I’m interested to hear how the Aria differs. Happy Holidays!

  6. I love your list! I have no Guerlain balls and I can’t believe I forgot to put them on my list! EEK!

  7. That Butter London set looks awesome!

  8. Clarisonics die? This makes me so sad. Still…after hanging on for 6 years, I think you deserve a new one!

  9. AmorePacific is wonderful! I saw that set, its a great value but I haven’t tried anything from that line, so I bought the full size moisturizer and eye cream during F&F.

  10. So glad you mentioned the Guerlain Ballz! 😀 I have a few different LE ones and they are amazing!

  11. That Butter LONDON set looks amazing!!! I, too, have heard amazing things about Amore Pacific! That set looks nice! Hope you have a wonderful Holiday!!! xoxo

  12. That coat is adorable!
