With 5 days (but 4 sleeps) till Christmas Day, am I too late in pronouncing my desired stocking fillers? I think so! With most of our christmas presents already under the tree I can only dream in the form of a Polyvore wishlist. I am in dire need of some new make-up, my Collection 2000 light foundation ran out today after using it for a good 2 months, and I am now having to revert to stealing my mums old Rimmel foundation that hasn't been touched in years! My poor face...


*LAST MINUTE STOCKING FILLERS* by emmalulu41 featuring mac cosmetics

If any of you beautiful beauty bloggers out there have done any reviews (good or bad) on any of the above I'd love to read them! Just leave a comment and a link after this post.
I've heard very good things about some of the items in this selection, so I'm only going on lusting over trusting with this wishlist. I have however tried the TRESemme heat protection spray, courtesy of my mothers dressing table, I recommend it over any of the other heat defence sprays as it does the job and also smells nice, can't go wrong with a scented heat protecting spray! Well done TRESemme.

01. You might have seen my Mac cosmetics interview with professional MUA Naomi Lake here, where I was persuaded into the life of MAC cosmetics, I've yet to part with the cash but I'm hoping someone hears my desperate plea's and puts this 'office hours' longwear blusher in my stocking!
02. The perfume I got for christmas last year ran out shortly after, I think I over used it too quickly, so I'm lusting over some expensive designer spray that I can wear on those 'special' occasions, and I've heard people rooting about Chloe so maybe I'll give it a try? Santa.. baby?
03. You might be thinking, why has she got the Marilyn hair moisturiser for blondes on her wishlist? Well it's because recently I've noticed my ombre has started to go a gingey colour, and I'm lusting over brighter, bleachier ends!
04. I've been using the same makeup bag since Bestival, which was only supposed to be a weekend swap but I've been too lazy to switch back to my old make-up bag which is subsequently covered in powder and mascara lines due to leaks and breakages, so I think it's time for a new one! This cute 'little beauty bag' is simple and chic, and notorious on the market with it's 'little/medium brown bag family', which I have noticed around ALOT lately, therefore fuelling my lust for one.
05. I'm running low on my usual Rimmel brown eyebrow pencil and this Lord and Berry magic eyebrow pencil from ASOS looks fancy and practical with it's built in brush applicator.
06. Believe it or not, I have never used concealer before, I think it's a little girl thing, you usually follow in your mothers makeup bag footsteps, we're both eyeliner addicts and her lack of concealer hand-me-down-ed to my makeup bag, thus me never trying it! But the stupid amount of stress I've been under at uni at the moment has caused me to break out and loose plentiful hours of sleep, so those blemishes and dark circles NEED to be taken care of!
07. Oh Louise Gray, need I say more? 
08. I'm lusting after this shade of  cremesheen + Pearl from MAC. I really want a daytime lipstick because my lips get so chapped in the cold, so a bit of colour to add to my lipbalm would suit me perfect.
09. Yankee candles are everywhere on instagram I can't seem to get away, it frustrates me seeing pictures of the festive smellies seeing as I've never owned one myself! This red velvet one caught my eye as I'm in a hungry mood, I'm sure this smells good enough to eat!
10. Naked palette by MAC is everywhere on youtube, I feel foolish for not trying it yet!
11. Barry M glitter nail polishes seem to be instagrammed to buggery recently too so I felt it was necessary to put this on my wishlist! 
If I don't get any of these for xmas, which is very unlikely that I will, please comment and let me know which ones I will definitely be trusting over lusting!
