Do you ever gt a severe case of the “I Wants”? I’ll assume yes because, well, you’re here! I’ve made quite a few purchases this month & still have a list around a mile long! I thought I’d show you some of the products I’ve been lusting after…feel free to tell me your thoughts if you own them or enable me with more options in the comments!Let’s get this party started shall we?
Dior Miss Eau de Parfum
I had to put this at the top of my list because I’ve been lusting after it for YEARS! I’ve seriously gone through at least 10 testers! I have it on pretty good authority (upon penalty of severe disappointment) that I’ll be getting this for my anniversary next month! Finally! This is the first scent I could see as my signature. I am honestly not fond of it upon first spray but when it settles into my skin it smells incredible!
Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation
I’m trying to decide on a new foundation for fall but I’m left undecided. I usually go for drugstore but I’m not finding my current ones to be moisturizing enough. I figured it was time to invest in a more expensive (& hopefully higher quality!) option! I have pretty dry skin but I like some coverage. I also need something that wears for a long time. I like that this has SPF, isn’t matte, & is supposed to look natural. Has anyone tried it?
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24HR
My other main contender is this foundation from Lancome. This is supposed to last a really long time (although I never wear my makeup for over 24 hours I guess that’s nice?) & not need touch ups. This is pricey but if it isn’t drying on my skin it will be worth it. I have a hard time finding something long wearing that doesn’t make me look like a dried out mummy up close.
Benefit Boxed Blush in Dallas
With all the hype about their newest shade are you surprised to see Dallas on my list? I have a confession: I don’t own ANY Benefit boxed blushes, not one! Everyone is usually shocked but I got into the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes so I had my focus elsewhere. But Dallas has my attention. I’ve had this on my list since last fall because I think it would be the perfect addition to my oh so loved neutral blush in Exposed from the Tarte Amazonian line. This shade has a touch more mauve/plum so I think I’d wear it a lot in the colder months.
Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Fluorescent Beige
When the luxe Marc Jacobs line hit Sephora online I wasn’t all that impressed. Pretty yes but not stunning. When I went into the store, however, I fell for this polish specifically. It looks so pretty & ethereal & honestly the whole collection looks SO much better in person. I don’t shell out $18 for a nail polish often…but I just might have to snap this one up after hearing raves about the formula as well.
Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con Palette in The Starlet
Another Marc Jacobs item? Well, duh, because I need more eyeshadow. Because this is the internet I’ll just tell you straight out that was in a severe sarcastic tone. But this palette spoke to me…the price did not. I’m loving it thought so who knows… I love the neutrals but when I swatched in the store the copper shade screamed my name.
Lancome Gloss in Love in the shade Blink Pink
Normally I’m a pretty standard drugstore gloss girl. I have a lot & I like the variety without putting me into a spiraling black hole of lippie debt. But Lancome totally made something special here. I swatched this in the store, loved the color so much. Then I walked around. Because it is a gel it leveled out on my skin & looked EVEN BETTER. It was ridiculous. I need this & hope to buy it soon!
Tarte Pure Delights 8-Piece LipSurgence Lip Set
Omigarsh! It is that time of year (you know, before October) that they start rolling out holiday sets & this one got me right in the heart. I love the formula on these pencils SO much & the idea of having even more that are more travel friendly has me sold. Plus, the variety in the set looks nice with some of the regular formula & some mattes. All shades look fabulously wearable as well.
Pink Sith- NYX Mosaic Powder Blush
Sorry about the bad picture quality ya’ll. But seriously, I never expected this. Usually I stalk Pink Sith for high-end products to drool over so when she posted about her Top 10 Under $10 & I saw a blush I figured she knew what she was talking about. She knows her blushes. I’ll have to pick this up sometime in the future!
Beauty Broadcast- Lorac Dazzling Dozen Eye Shadow Collection
Emily is constantly making me buy things through youtube or her blog. Seriously. She did a set of quick swatches on this set from ULTA & yeah, I need it. When she pointed out that the shade Smokin’ is a dupe for the Taupe shade in the Lorac Pro Palette I knew I was suckered in. I say that like it is such a terrible thing right? But honestly… $35 for 12 Lorac full sized singles is a steal.
Vampy Varnish- Sigma Creme De Couture Palette
I wasn’t sure how I felt about this palette after watching some video reviews so I hit the web where I feel you can just get a better feel for most products. I love swatches & video swatches don’t always look all that great. When the fabulous Vampy Varnish reviewed this so honestly & swatched them so beautifully she swayed me to the “want” side of the spectrum. All of these shades are matte pastels mostly & just so pretty.
Blushing Noir- Smashbox Fade to Black Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette
I am a big Smashbox fan & Brooke from Blushing Noir sang me a sweet, sweet tune about this lovely palette. Personally I think I prefer this palette above to the Fade In but she convinced me the quality was definitely worthwhile. I might even check out both. & her eyeshadow look? Gorgeous.
Cosmetics Aficionado- Makeup Geek Liquid Gold Pigment
I’ve seen so many wonderful reviews on the Makeup Geek pigments but when Cosmetics Aficionado showed this awesome dupe for the Make Up For Ever Metal Powder #4 I was blown away! I’ve actually had my eye on that shade & to see her swatches where the Makeup Geek just looks SO much easier to work with I was sold. & can I really buy just one pigment? Let’s not be silly, I’m sure I’ll be hoarding quite a few in the nearish future.
Whew! So there you have it, my very long list of beauty lusts! Lots of things here I’m planning to pick up but I would absolutely love any recommendations or other products you think I might enjoy! Thanks so much for stopping by!
