What’s On My Beauty Wishlist

What’s On My Beauty Wishlist

During the festive break I had a massive clear out of all of my makeup and managed to get rid of quite a bit. Of course my mum got first dibs on anything she wanted, but the clear out left my makeup collection looking more streamlined and I kept only a handful of those maybe I’ll use it one day kind of products. Of course having a clear out means I have spare for even more make up, that’s definitely how it works. I’m trying to make better decisions about the products I buy and not buy things which are too samey which is where my wishlist has come from.

NYX Pro Foundation Mixer

When I was clearing out my makeup I had to put my Nars foundation aside as it’s just a bit too dark for my face but I don’t want to get rid of it quite yet. I’ve been meaning to grab some of the NYX pro foundation mixer for ages but I want to give this a go with my foundation to see if it works before admitting defeat and throwing it away. The NYX stand at my local Boots is shocking, so many gaps and it never seems to have the latest products so when I’m next in Selfridges or a larger Boots in London I am going to keep a look out for this.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

I have been lusting over this palette for absolute ages now but still can’t bring myself to spend £40 on an eyeshadow palette. I know one day I’ll own this, and I might weep when I do, but it’s just so stunning. I hear so many people rave about the formula of these shadows and the day I can try them out for myself will be a happy day.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

One part of my skincare routine which never wavers is moisurizing, I do it every morning when I get out of the shower and let it sink in for about half an hour before I do my makeup. Over the years’ I’ve tried so many creams but the indulgent one I’ve always wanted to try is the magic cream from Charlotte Tilbury but I’ve never been able to justify £70 on a cream. As I am trying to stream line my skincare and use up what I have before purchasing anything new I am hoping in a few months’ time once I’ve used up some bits I can convince myself to invest in this.

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Definition Foundation

I only really own two proper foundations since my clear out so I am in need for something new. I absolutely love the Urban Decay naked concealer so it seems only logical to try out the foundation version. Lots of people have said it’s good for dry skin which is perfect for me as I do suffer from the odd dry patch. 

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

In the past few months I have seen this foundation everywhere from blog posts galore to recommendations when I asked out to the community. I’ve fallen down before and bought foundations without taking away a trial so I definitely want to go and get colour matched and try a sample of this foundation to see how it looks and feels on my skin.

Zoeva Eyeshadow Palette

I realized I don’t actually own a huge amount of eyeshadow palette’s so this is an area which I want to expand as the ones I own now are well displayed and much easier to find and use. I have been meaning to try out something from the Zoeva collection for ages but I don’t tend to like buying too much makeup without swatching it or at least seeing it in the flesh. Next weekend I am heading to Selfridges so I plan on checking out the eyeshadow palette’s there so I can work out which one I want to add to my collection.

Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette 

I’ve only tried blushers in the Tarte collection so because I’ve been focused on eyeshadow palettes recently and most of this wishlist seems to be focused on them I thought I’d a Tarte one in. This palette is pretty much my standard go to shades and I love that the whole palette is matte. There’s a few darker shades so I can see if I’m able to nail that smokey look as opposed to looking like I’ve got a black eye.

What’s on your wishlist? Any items you could recommend?

    Have you tried the magic cream before? My skin is so confused by this weather and is getting so dry! I’m on the look out for a wonder product to help sort it out. I do agree that £70 is a lot though!!

  3. January 25, 2017 / 11:37 am

    I do love having a good clear out, I recently had a clearout on my make up, and loving renewing it all, especially eyeshadow palettes x

  4. January 25, 2017 / 12:15 pm

    We have such similar tastes 🙂 i have the Armani foundation on the way, just a tad excited to try it out, apart from that I want the large Marc Jacobs Blush and possible some more Tom Ford products 🙂 but your list has added to mine now as well lol x

  5. January 25, 2017 / 12:33 pm

    Great picks! I am also really intrigued by all I’ve heard about the Armani foundation. I’d like to know what you think when you get it. x

  6. January 25, 2017 / 2:05 pm

    Is your local NYX stand the Manchester Market Street one by any chance? Cause that place is always EMPTY! I ditched my Nars Sheer Glow in favour of the NYX HD photogenic and I regret it so much. I haven’t tried the mixer but the HD foundation is weirdly thick and sticky.

      Nope, mine is the Watford store but they all seem the same, the Selfridges NYX is so much better! I’ve heard really mixed things about their foundations so I might steer clear from them x

    I had a massive clear out over Christmas too. It’s amazing how much stuff that you can hoard that you don’t even need.

  8. January 25, 2017 / 5:22 pm

    I think a clear out is great, I should probably do the same. I really like the items you have put on your wishlist and I would like to try the Armani foundation as well x

  10. January 25, 2017 / 6:34 pm

    Sooo many goodies on your list! I don’t blame you at all 🙂 This year I will be rying out more beauty products as well. I shall check out some that’s on your list!

    I have the urban decay on my wishlist too – really impressed with their concealer at the moment so might take the leap next! I have recently started using tarte palette – don’t like the colours i have, but they last all day even through sweat etc and love the softness x

    I almost bought some NYX make up the other day but the reviews weren’t very good so it out me off. May have to try it for myself.

  17. January 26, 2017 / 7:56 pm

    Loving your beauty wishlist, I need to put one together myself. From your list I need the UD foundation

  18. January 26, 2017 / 10:41 pm

    Great picks – I’d never heard of the NYX Pro foundation Mixer – sounds like something I might pick up soon 🙂

  21. January 27, 2017 / 12:35 pm

    Oh yes, please! That Gorgio Armani foundation looks amazing and not to mention the eye shadow palettes 🙂

  22. January 27, 2017 / 12:43 pm

    It’s far too long since I bought a new eyeshadow palette. I love the look of the Zeova one, great tip!

    I need a new eyeshadow palette but haven’t had a chance to grab one just yet. The Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance Palette looks great!

  25. January 27, 2017 / 7:34 pm

    I have a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products on my wish list too! Hard to justify the price though as you say.

  26. January 27, 2017 / 7:47 pm

    I love a good palette and I’ve been lusting over the Anastasia one for a couple of weeks now!
