‘TIS THE SEASON to ‘discreetly’ drop hints in the hope of seeing something nice under the tree come December 25. But what are the Irish and beauty-mad seeking out this year?

Everything on my wishlist is cruelty free and vegan! I’d love Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint (the best red lipstick I’ve ever worn. I already have it but I want another one, just in case); Illamasqua Beyond highlighter, which looks like the highlight of dreams; and the Kat Von D Lolita Obsession Set.

On my wishlist this year is Huda Beauty Faux Filter Foundation. The launch of the brand here in Ireland got us beauty lovers all a quiver and after watching dozens of tutorials on Huda’s Instagram account, I think I need this!

With my adoration for the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette, it’s only natural that I’m majorly lusting over its follow-up, the Desert Dusk palette. Those lush purples are dreamy.
I’m also dying to try the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Foundation. It’s gotten mixed reviews but matte and full coverage are some of my favourite words so I’ve a feeling we’ll be firm friends.

I got a laugh out of Tom Ford’s F**king Fabulous fragrance but, at €245, finding it under my tree would be a true Christmas miracle. A gift voucher for a gel manicure would be much more my speed. It’s the kind of luxury you could never justify yourself in January, so would be the perfect gift.

I actually did a whole post dedicated to this over on my blog this year (which the boyfriend was very happy about). Top of my beauty list this year is definitely a L’Oréal Steampod. So many of my fab beauty blogger mates have said their hair game was upped tenfold after taking the Steampod plunge.

Steampods are very popular this year:
Number one on my wish list would be a L’Oreal Steampod, because I’m shite at styling my own hair!

On my wishlist would be a new original Beauty Blender – my dog ate mine and I really find it performs better than others I’ve tried! Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation was very hyped this year so I really want to try it out. Also, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb – it’s my all time favourite perfume, I panic when it’s starting to run low!
