My Christmas Makeup Collection Wishlist

My Christmas Makeup Collection Wishlist: Tarte, Too Faced and Hourglass

It’s no secret some of my favourite brands are releasing Christmas Sets which makes me extremely excited! While I can get ahold of Too Faced and Hourglass at Mecca this silly season, I unfortunately can’t get ahold of anything by Tarte as there is no Sephora in my sunny state of Queensland. Christmas Collection sets are generally quite good value – as you can try out multiple products at once for cheaper, even if they are sample size!

Starting with Tarte, that blush palette looks divine and I always regretted not picking up anything in last year’s holiday blush collection! The blush palette includes five different blush shades for any occasion. I’ve heard amazing comments about Tarte’s blushes and I am looking forward to possibly having a sample size of each blush. Do you have this or last year’s palette?

Next on my wishlist is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette. The Hourglass palette will retail for $132AUD at Mecca I think. This palette has been scrutinised by many for being poor value for money in terms of the size of the pans. I actually own four out of six shades in the palette so sadly, I don’t think I can justify getting this palette for only two shades. One shade is limited edition, and one shade a regular, so I can pick up one of them at least currently. It’s such a shame that Hourglass chose to use the same blushes from last year’s palette in this year’s, as if they were different I feel like you’d get more value! Let me know if you’ve purchased this and you think it’s worth the money.

Lastly on my wishlist, I have yet another blush related Christmas Release, the Too Faced Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks kit! I love that this can be broken up as three separate gifts, or kept all for yourself (That’s what I’ll be doing haha)! My favourite blush in this pack is the deep pink “Your Love Is King”, which I actually wanted to buy recently with the newest release in the Too Faced family. I also want to increase my “Melted” lips collection as I only have “Berry” currently. I’m excited about this the most, as I feel I have the best chance of actually purchasing this Christmas Pack!

What’s on your Christmas Collection wishlists? Let me know in the comments!



  • The value of the HG palette is soooo poor…but I still want to get it haha 😛 I think the value for me is that I can try a few shades and different products in one palette, because I just can’t see myself buying any of them singly! That Too Faced set looks amazing. I really want to try the blushes and melted lipsticks. I kinda wanted the blushes just for the packaging tho so I wish they would’ve made the minis an exact of the full size just mini haha 😛

    • I don’t think I would use all of a full size product either. I just wish it was a few different shades, then I would get it for sure!
      Ahh yes I wish the blush packaging was as cute as the full size!

  • That Too Faced pack looks great! I haven’t tried either of their Melted lipsticks or blushes so I wouldn’t mind getting that one.

  • the HG palette is a pretty good deal! DF xo

  • That. Too. Faced. Kit. Though. Oh lawdy!
    I’ve had my eye on the Melted lipsticks for a zillion years, and I’m STILL yet to give them a go. A kit with lippies AND blushes? Why, don’t mind if I do. 😉

  • I was considering getting the Hourglass palette for Christmas, but now I don’t think it’s worth it! I have been wanting to try the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, as well as their blushes, and it seems quite good value, so that will probably be going on my wishlist haha! And the Tarte palette looks great, but I’m wondering whether it would be worth it as I know I probably wouldn’t use all the shades. Not that I don’t have a big enough wishlist already haha.

    • I think the Tarte palette would be better value for me because I don’t have any shades already. Hourglass is such good quality though!

      Ahh yes – so excited for Too Faced

    I really wanted the hourglass palette, but the size really bothers me, I dont want to pay that amount for such a small item 🙁

  • I love the look of that Tarte blush set! I am yet to try anything from Tarte, and I will Sephora would just hurry up and come to Brisbane already!!

    • My friend in Sydney just bought me the Tartelette palette this morning which I’m so excited to try! Hopefully she might be able to get me the blush palette too if Sephora Melbourne doesn’t open in time for when I’m on holiday.

      But seriously, when it comes to Brisbane I’m taking the day off dammit haha
