If you’re reading this, you either haven’t bought your girlfriend/sister/bff a present yet, or you’re suspecting your boyfriend/girlfriend/mum/dad/whoever hasn’t got you anything yet and has absolutely no idea what to get.
You are (or they are) not alone.
Because while you might think that somebody who documents their likes and dislikes as much as I do would be pretty easy to shop for, unfortunately you would be wrong.
My boyfriend found this out the hard way. He wanted to buy me an eyeshadow palette he’d seen me post about, because he thought I wanted it. He later found out that I’d been posting about it because I already had it.
So to make things a little easier on my loving friends and family I’ve put together the following list of stuff I want, that I either don’t have or could use more of:
1. Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow
I have wanted these forever but I always seem to find a reason not to buy them. The shades I particularly want are Kitten Karma, Smoldering Satin and Rose Gold Retro… If you’ve left this to the last second (like I know my man has) Mecca has really quick express shipping. Just double check your makeup addict’s collection first to make sure you’re not buying a shade they already have!
2. The Gigi Hadid x Maybelline lippie collection
I love maybelline lipstick and I love the look of this collection but I haven’t had a chance to pick any up for myself just yet. I love the shades Khair and McCall. You can get them from Farmers for only $25 a pop.
3. Essie top and base coats
While you’re at Farmers, you might as well make a quick stop at the Essie stand.You can never have too many top and base coats so even if your makeup pal already has one, they’ll no doubt be stoked to get a top up. And if they have the Gel Couture top coat in stock (they never do) you’d better snatch that up pronto. I own several Gel Couture polishes but they’re no good without the top coat which I sadly haven’t been able to get. (It’s the twisty white bottle, ask someone at the counter if you’re lost)(this is mainly a hint for Ben, I reeeally want this one)
4. Sugar Cube Co sugar scrubs
Just like the top and base coats, you can never have too many bath and shower products. Anything you can use up, it’s good to have more of. Which is why I definitely wouldn’t say no to more Sugar Cube Co sugar scrubs under my tree – this stuff is like crack to me. You can also use my code MICHE for 15% off! Get your sugar fix here. But be quick – cut off for Christmas shipping is 10am on Tuesday the 19th.
5. Makeup brushes
Because the more brushes you have, the less often you have to wash them. #science. You can get good cheap ones online but if you’ve left it to the very last minute and online shopping isn’t an option, the rose gold Artiste brushes from Farmers are pretty good for the price.Make sure they’re the rose gold ones, though, as my experience with the rest of the Artiste range is it can be pretty hit and miss.
I hope that this helps someone! If you spot something you want on this list, feel free to send it to your man… fingers crossed he gets the hint!
