Okay, I am in serious need of a makeup splurge. My first, favourite, and only Chanel highlighter only has a very tiny amount left in the pan, and seeing it like that pains me. I also just haven’t really bought anything but the necessities (ie. foundation, mascara) in a loooong time. Seriously, it’s been ages. Granted, I have a lot of makeup for someone who often goes without and can’t work out how to apply a decent smoky eye if her life depended on it, but… Okay, I can’t justify wanting to buy more, but that’s what this Weekly Wishlist is about!
I’m choosing Mecca mainly because they’re located in the shopping centre (mall) closest to me, and I’m kind of… super… lazy. Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve done a Sephora wishlist before, and Mecca has some different stuff that I’m lusting after.
Here we gooo!
I don’t really understand this blush, but that’s why I want it. It seems risky to buy a blush where you can’t actually see what colour it will turn out to be (it goes from green to pink when you put it on) but apparently it reacts to your skin’s pH level to give you the perfect hue. I’m kind of skeptical, but I would still love to try it.
I’ve always wanted to own this palette, but I couldn’t allow myself to spend $90 + when I already had and loved the Chanel one. Well, since that part of my life is over (a little dramatic?) I think it’s time I treat myself. My friend has this palette and her highlighter always looks amazing, (albeit she is more talented than me with makeup) but I think that’s a pretty good sign.
I’m also definitely in need of a new bronzer. I’ve never had one that I loved, just worked with. But as I’m quite pale, most of the ones I’ve had have been too dark, or just not the right tone. I think the colour of this one looks perfect – and the packaging is too cute.
Concealer is another where I haven’t had one I really enjoyed. In fact, I’ve quite honestly disliked the ones I tried, which put me off. But I think concealing is an important step of a beauty routine, so I’m ready to give it another go. I’ve heard amazing things about this NARS one and seen it on multiple YouTube videos, so I think this is the one for me to try!
Rouge Volupte Shine Oil in Stick – Yves Saint Laurent
(in 51 Rose Saharienne)
Alright, I definitely don’t need any more lipsticks. However, this colour is so beautiful, and I’ve always been fond of the packaging of Yves Saint Laurent lipsticks. How could I possibly resist lusting after this one?!
Have you tried any of these products? What makeup are you currently lusting after?
