Clockwise from top left: Real Techniques Core Collection, NARS Blush in Outlaw, Urban Decay Vice Palette, MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger
Real Techniques Core Collection: Okay so strictly this needn't be considered "high end" for what you get, I find that the price is very reasonable. However, I do have to wonder why it's £21.99 from Boots and only $18 on the Real Techniques website. I'm not sure if they ship to the UK but I intend on buying these with my Boots points. Hello freebies!
NARS Blush in Outlaw: Oh I need one. I know I don't need one but I need one. I'm not 100% sure which colour I'll go for yet but I adore the look of Outlaw. A soft raspberry with a gold sheen. Absolutely beautiful. I just hope it's not too dark for my skin tone. £21. I'm sure I can justify it somehow.
MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger: A MAC lipstick is an absolute staple. Again, I'm not 100% sure which shade is for me but look at Lady Danger! A matte orange toned red that packs a serious punch. Stunning. £14.
Urban Decay Vice Palette: I know everyone is all about the Naked palettes but honestly, I truly feel that my MUA Undressed Palette is all I need in that area. I know that the quality is probably very different but for the price, Urban Decay can't beat my £4 drugstore gem. BUT, look at the Vice Palette. Look at it's shining gloriousness. Look at it's incredible colours and whimsical names. LOOK AT IT! I'm dying to get my grubby mitts on this. It's going to have to be my first big purchase of the year because of it's limited edition status. I'm hoping that I'll be getting some late Christmas money soon and I know exactly where it's going. £42 and hopefully worth every penny.
I'm certain this list will be added to as the new releases start filtering down to us lowly mortals, but for now I'm satisfied and my targets are set.
What do you think of my choices? Are you plunging into any unknown beauty territory this year?
