First off, I apologize for not putting up a January Beauty Lust List! I was in California for IMATS LA & I barely had time to breathe period! So for this month’s list I’ve come up with a handful (okay, a larger handful…) of items I’m lusting after. I mean, there is just always something right? Keep reading to see what I picked up from my last Beauty Lust List & what I’m wanting this month…plus my blogger/vlogger enablers…you know you love those!
From my December 2013 Beauty Lust List which you can see here I actually ended up with both of the palettes! I reviewed the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 Matte Palette here quite recently & then my hubby picked up the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette for me for Valentine’s Day. Hopefully I’ll have that reviewed but so far I really like it & it smells divine!
It Cosmetics Feel The Moment Anti-Aging Ultra Hydrating Sensory Awakening Primer Serum– Yes, just yes. I need this! A primer/serum duo? Already excited….but then add in extra hydration & I’m sold! With my dry skin some primers meant for me are honestly…thick. Or leave makeup patchy. Or break me out because it is too heavy. On top of all that, It Cosmetics pretty much only puts out products that are good for you & your skin. Even their eyeliners. I trust them more than I trust half the doctors I’ve seen.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Etherea– Seriously…it is like Hourglass knows they have me by the pursestraps. Because…they pretty much do. I finally broke down & bought the fabulous Hourglass limited edition palette (after serious consideration & hunting) & have really had a hard time wanting to use anything else for setting. This is some voodoo magic in a powder! I’m already restraining myself & they come out with this gorgeous new line of blushes. Uhg. I feel like Etherea needs to be mine, doesn’t it look like the perfect cool pink complementary tone for most makeup looks?
NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick in Razzle– In the photo, this looks like a hot pink leaning orchid-ish type shade? Maybe? Either way I need to finally go out & grab these. I’m absolutely addicted to the glosses (I also need the new shades from that line too!) so it stands to reason I’ll love these too. They’ve gotten great feedback- comfortable lip products are so IN right now!
Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliners in Sienna, Mint Julep, & Sepia– The basics of the Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliners are simple- long wearing, beautiful, & easy to apply. I’ve been sold since I tried my first one…which has consequently cost me quite a lot of dough. But they’re absolutely worth it. Recently they came out with a bunch of new shades but my top 3 shades on the list are Sienna (burnt orange bronze), Mint Julep (pale looking mint), & Sepia (metallic golden dark beige). Each shade speaks to me & I think I’ll use all three quite a lot!
Butter London Nail Polish Lucy in the Sky– Normally I’d go on & on trying to describe a glitzy glitter polish but instead I’ll leave you with the description from Sephora: “A sheer, iridescent, gold and silver glitter suspended in a rosy pink base”. Yes. I need it.
It Cosmetics Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain in Je Ne Sais Quoi– Another It Cosmetics product…stop rolling your eyes! I need all the things! Again, this gloss contains great for you ingredients but it is also a stain. Pretty exciting stuff for me since my lips have been needing some tlc. A stain that’s nourishing? & repairing? & actually looks pretty? Yes please! So much yes!
Makeup Geek Gel Eyeliner in Rave– I picked up some Makeup Geek items awhile back & really have been enjoying them…but I didn’t pick up any eyeliners. I sure wish I had seen Marlena’s swatch of Rave before my order! It looks kind of gray in the photo above & kind of bronze-y on her arm…so maybe it is a bit taupe? Either way…I want it! These are supposed to be smudge-proof & water-resistant as well…even more interested!
Makeup Geek Pigment in Utopia-I’ve been waiting a LONG time for this pigment & it always seems to be out of stock! Utopia has been all over the blogg/vlog universe…& I need it. It should be back in March- I’m tempted to snap it up then but then another part of me says I should wait for a sale. I still haven’t decided yet & I doubt I’m the only one yearning after it!
