Beauty Guru: A product junkie's holiday wish list

It's crazy how this year has flown! The holidays are right around the corner which means great time with family, overindulging on yummy food, and hitting the stores for gifts. It also means getting our wish lists together so this month's assignment was right on time! Today I get to talk about the three beauty products I would love my Santa to leave for me under the tree (so I hope he's paying attention!)

Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette

The follow up to one of the hottest beauty products out there, this eyeshadow palette has 12 neutral shades. With pale, deep, matte, and sparkly colors, there are so many daytime looks I can put together with this palette! With adding the new role of Mommy to my life, things are even more hectic and I would love to have something like Naked that I can use to get myself together and go! I can use the pale and matte colors for my everyday looks while the deep and sparkly ones would be perfect for date nights with my husband. Those who have already bought just rave the pigmentation and versatility of the palette which are two big things I look for when it comes to shadow.

Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Deep Moisture Set

When I started growing out my relaxer, I splurged on the hair products from the brand's Black Vanilla collection and absolutely loved it! I always wanted to get the Hair Milk conditioners once my curls came in but life (and my wallet!) kind of got in the way. Even after all this time, this set is still on my wish list. The Co-Washing Cleanser, Leave-in Moisturizer, and Hair Pudding are formulated to give the moisture my naturally dry hair needs. These products promise to leave curls defined and frizz free without using harsh ingredients like sulfates, parabens, petroleum, or mineral oil. What more can a curly girl ask for!

The Essential Perfectly Plush Brush Kit from M.A.C Cosmetics

As I became more and more confident with my makeup skills I quickly realized that I need a good set of brushes. You can never go wrong with M.A.C so this set had to make my holiday wish list! This set is perfect for girls like me who are looking to build their brush collection. It comes with the 190 Foundation brush, 129 Powder/Blush Brush, 275 Medium Angled Shading Brush, 266 Small Angle Brush and 226 Small Tapered Blending Brush. This set would give my current collection a serious upgrade and allow me to take my makeup look to the next level! (And oh, the case it comes in is super cute, too!)
