Holiday 2013 Wish List

First, I can’t get a grasp on the fact that Thanksgiving is this week. I’ve finally gotten used to writing 2013 and it’s going to be 2014 before we know it. Argh!!

That being said, the holidays are just around the corner and I love putting together a Holiday Wish List as much as I did as a kid when I dogeared pages of the Sears Wish Book. To make things easier on the boyfriend, I even made him a secret Pinterest board to make his shopping a bit easier. Amazon Wish Lists are an amazing thing as well.

So what am I asking for this year?

Palettes, palettes and more palettes. Hair tools, shiny, sparkly things and random nonsense. I specifically left out nail related items as I’ll be covering those in another post.


I can’t get the Perfecter Fusion Styler (3) out of my brain and the constant deluge of informercials isn’t helping. I’m also intrigued by the Goody QuickStyle (2) brushes that supposedly cut drying time in half and the BeLissPRO Curl Genius (1) looks like it could either be a hair tangling nightmare or magic.


Urban Decay Naked 3 (4) just released and I’m OBSESSED with its rose gold goodness. It better come back in stock before Christmas. It just HAS too. I’m still lemming the MAC Stroke of Midnight: Cool Eyes (5) and Laura Mercier Luxe Colour Wardrobe (6) after posting about them on a past Top 10 Tuesday.


Over the past couple  years I’ve become a tremendous Alexis Bittar fan. His stonework is simply stunning and I have a wish list a mile long when it comes to his jewelry. However, the Hyperion Small Aura Pave Pendant (7) and Extra Small Drop Necklace (8) are at the top. Also, my nauti side has been eyeing this Kiel James Patrick  Anchor Rope Bracelet (8) since last summer.

Just For Fun

In case you haven’t heard, Cards Against Humanity released a Fourth Expansion (9) of their wickedly fun party game. They also have the Bigger, Blacker Box to carry them all in. I know it’s just a box but I still want it to hold all my cards in one place.

What’s on your wish list for the upcoming holidays? Do any of my picks match yours?

    I love that anchor bracelet!

  2. Pink Sith says:

    I really need to pick up Cards Against Humanity. Not that Mr. Sith and I don’t have loads to talk about, but we love this sort of thing. Super List!!

  3. Chris says:

    I’m totally getting Naked 3! I never thought I’d get into the Naked hype, but they really are great palettes and a MUA like myself could use good quality neutral palettes. I have no idea why I took so long to buy 1 and 2.

  4. Lorraine says:

    Laura Mercier set is always a great one, I love that the brushes are really well made, just like her full sized ones- not the throwaway kind that come with some sets. Her shadows are tops for blendability. I hope you get that and the pretty bracelet, too. You’ve been good this year!

  5. Teri says:

    Great list Michelle! I have those Quickstyle brushes, or should I say my daughter does because she has a lot of hair like you do and they do cut down on drying time as they do absorb extra water out of hair as you brush. Happy Holidays!

  6. You totally need the hair curler. I have the Conair one, I’ll bring it up next time lol it’s so fabulous!

  7. jbrobeck says:

    Ok, I want ALL THREE of the palettes you picked!

  8. Suzanne says:

    I don’t believe the Naked 3 comes out until January from what I read. I asked for it too until Jess pointed out that I missed that little fact.
    Also, I have one of those Goody brushes and I am a bit indifferent towards it. I don’t think it makes a big difference but it also doesn’t hurt anything so I still use it.

  9. My hubby is in the Navy so that anchor bracelet is calling me! :D I also want one of those curlers! The way it works just fascinates me!

  10. I want that Naked 3 palette, too! I should have had that one on my list as well! :)

  11. Cat Wendt says:

    It’s not *just* a box! There’s a new card, hidden in a secret compartment. :) Also, if you haven’t gotten Crabs Adjust Humidity expansions yet, you soooo should!

  12. Love your list and I’d happily take anything on it. I know that the UD 3 will be mine one day. There’s no way I’ll be able to ignore it.

  13. I missed Naked 3–it was sold out so I’m with you–it BETTER come back in stock quick! I love the necklaces–great choices!

  14. Icequeen81 says:

    I like choices 4 and 8 , prefer I liked the third palette more because of the rose gold which are more closer to my idea of neutrals tan the first previous 2 even I don’t own any of them

    Do you know what it mine opinion could be a perfect pair for bracelet 8 catrice Hugo moss nial polish or KShimmer Green Hex and Glam with a very shiny glossy clear top coat

  15. Brittany says:

    Such gorgeous jewelry picks! And I saw that Cards for Humanity deal and I think I paused and now they’re all sold out. Eek!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Oh, you mean the 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit? I got in on that the day it launched. It was sold out by the next day. Crazy!

  16. terri says:

    I keep looking at the Goody quickstyle brushes, I actually have the comb they used to sell, not sure if is still around, and it really does help dry hair a bit! That rope bracelet is really cute, hope you get it!

    • Michelle Mismas says:

      Thanks! I do too. It’s been on my wish list since summer so I hope the boyfriend comes through :)

  17. Galaxia says:

    I feel like I NEEEED the Naked 3 palette!

  18. Raging Rouge says:

    I love your jewelry choices! So pretty!
