My 2013 Christmas Wishlist

Hello Pinay Beauties! Hope you are doing well. I know a lot of you guys have been busy shopping for Christmas gifts and preparing for Noche Buena. As for me, I am busy with work. Period. (LOL)

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you the things that are on my wishlist for this season. These are items that motivates me to work hard so I can get 'em. :)
Sedona Lace Vortex Professional Makeup Brushes
I've been eyeing this babies for months now! I mean yes, I still dream of owning a Sigma Mr. Bunny Kit but this is way cheaper and can we all please take a moment to admire that tapered face brush? I am inlove!

Korean Skincare Products

Who among you here dream of having that perfect Korean flawless skin? I sure do! I read this post from Sun Hye Mi about effective Korean skincare products for troubled skin and these are the items that I would love to try out. Especially now since it seems my face is on "berserk" mode, I am breaking out a lot and I am not sure why.

Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation
Ever since I've watched this acne coverage routine by Lisa Eldridge, I know that this is a must have. It covers acne spots beautifully and can actually be doubled up as a concealer. This is available locally at Digital Traincase, but it is a bit expensive, but it is around ₱1,400+ so I need to save, save, save.

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette
If you are like me who is confused whether to get the Naked 1 or the Naked 2 palette, then you should definitely check out this new palette from Coastal Scents. It has dupes for both Naked Palettes and it is way cheaper. Check out this post from Emily to see the swatches.

Australis Velourlips Matte Lip CreamThey are branded as the dupe for the Lime Crime Velvetines, but unfortunately I cannot find anyone who sells these lip creams here. The color selection is just superb and have you seen how crazily pigmented this is? Here is a swatch of 2 of their bestselling shades Rio-D and Ma-Li-Boo:

Belle De Jour Power Planner 2014
Oh this is something that I will definitely get! I joined a couple of giveaways for this planner but if I don't win then I will purchase it myself. I love how you can be super organized with this planner plus it has tons of coupons inside!

UPDATE: Check out some photos of what inside this planner here.

IPhone 5C in White
I added this here because why not, right? I fell in love with this phone and I really want to have it. Hopefully, hopefully soon I will be able to get my hands on this baby, but for now I will be working hard and earn more money for this.

Oh, and I also wanted to share another item on my wishlist which is the Real Techniques Brushes. I recently got the Expert Face Brush which I absolutely fell in love with and so is my partner, so she decided to purchase 2 sets for me from CareFreeShopper which arrived last Sunday but she wouldn't let me touch it and she wants me to open it on Christmas. The wait is killing me! By the way, she got me the Travel Essentials and the Eye Starter Set.

And there you have it! Hopefully I will be able to cross out a lot of items on this list, I just need to work, work, work since hard work always pays off! :)
