My Current Beauty Wish List

This post was initially going to be about my current skin care routine to go along with my most recent video. However, I'm currently writing this while wearing a mask that I'm hoping will clear up a bad breakout I'm having at the moment. Needless to say I don't really feel like talking about skin care right now haha! I'll include that video in a separate post just in case you are interested.

I decided to instead make a list of the products I've been eyeing up and would be in my beauty collection right now 
if I had unlimited funds. Some of them are new additions to this seemingly never-ending list and others have been in there for a long time and are those items you always mean to pick up but it never seems to happen.

The first item is Stila Créme Bouquet. Oh. My. God. This is seriously one of the best smelling perfumes I've come across in a while. I was actually working at a makeup event right beside the Stila counter and for hours I was wondering why this store had such a nice smell. Eventually I found out it was the Stila makeup artist that smelled so good! She told me was wearing Créme Bouquet so I tried it on and instantly fell in love with it. It's not my usual type of scent so I was surprised I liked it so much. I'm really horrible at describing scents but I think it contains vanilla, lots of florals, and something sweet. It's a very girly and feminine scent and out of everything on my wish list this is the product most likely to be purchased by me in the near future.

Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial is a product I've been curious about for a while now. I haven't tried much from Korres so I'm not sure how my skin would handle it (I've got crazy temperamental skin FYI) but the name of this mask makes me think I would love it. Rose and vitamin C? Count me in! I also love the concept of a sleeping facial. It just sounds so luxurious.

I received a sample of the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation a few weeks ago because I was curious about the "second skin" type of foundations. So far the CHANEL, Estée Lauder, and Clarins versions have been too dark for extremely pale me but I managed to find a decent match in this one. I use the shade 0.5 (the lightest colour Urban Decay makes) and it's only slightly off, nothing anyone normal would notice, really. I think I'll hold off on this one until next year when the weather get's warmer as I feel like this makes a nice spring/summer foundation.

I think I'm literally the only makeup obsessed person to not own an Urban Decay palette. I was never overly impressed with the gold/orangey, super shimmery shades in the first Naked palette so I didn't expect I would want the Naked 2 palette. I do think these colours would be so much more flattering on my skin and I can see myself using a lot of the shades. The problem is that if I were to just see this in the store, not knowing about all the hype, I probably wouldn't take a second look at it. It's not that I don't like the palette - I just don't use palettes unless I make them myself or I like all the colours inside A LOT. I know this would just end up being shoved to the back of my "spare palette" drawer and never been seen again. Is it wrong that I still want it? It's peer pressure I tell you, I need to get over this Naked palette obsession. It's unhealthy.

I love Living Proof. Everything I've tried from them has been great. Their shampoos are clarifying but non-drying. Their conditioners are moisturizing yet lightweight. Their mousse is volumizing and isn't crunchy. I could go on but I won't. I really want to try the Restore Mask Treatment because it's been ages since I've used a hair mask and I just feel like I should have one. I know I would like this product and I know it would be good quality but the price tag on Living Proof products is outrageous. I have seen some of their products at Winners for fairly reasonable prices so if I happen to stumble upon this there I'll probably get it.

I've mentioned the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish in my videos a few times and I love this product! I got it as a deluxe sample from a Sephora purchase and it's the perfect texture for an exfoliant. The beads are gentle but it still feels like it's doing something. I also think it smells good but I honestly don't know for sure because I can't remember. I have like 3 other exfoliants I need to use up before I buy this and I've even been using them on my hands to try and use them up faster.

Last product guys! Many of you may know that I'm obsessed with the Fresh tinted lip balms. I have all of them with the exception of Coral because it was a newer release and I decided I already owned enough of these. When I saw the Berry version on Sephora I decided I could do with keeping one more in my bag. Now I haven't actually seen this in person yet but I'm 99% sure I'll love this colour. I'm hoping it will give me the perfect - "Oh, I'm not wearing anything! My lips are just naturally this pouty and gorgeous." - kind of look that I can never seem to find.

Phew! That was a long one. Realistically I'll probably only end up getting one or two of these products. I don't even know if I ended up purchasing anything off my last wish list post. Any-who let me know if any of you have tried these products and what you thought of them and I'd love to know what's on your wish list!
