A Pricey Wishlist - Uh Oh

pricey wishlist

Lately for some reason I have just had an expensive taste. I think it's just that once you start dabbling in high end makeup, you kind of get addicted. I have just been mesmerised by the power and difference some high end brands make and my wish lists have become quite pricey. These are some products that I have simply been dying to get my hands on. 

First and foremost can I just admit to y'all that I have been obsessed with the idea of owning one of these adorable cameras. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is just so freakin adorable. It is this little camera that comes in different colours such as a pastel pink, light blue, white, black and even yellow. What's so special about this funky looking device? It's a polaroid camera! It takes instant shots of you and your photo is printed right away from the camera. It's kinda old school meets 2014 and I just really really want one. I have been trying to convince myself that life will simply not go on if I don't own this but I just can't splurge and make the purchase. It costs around €60 which isn't all that bad however, the catch is that the polaroid picture film costs like €20 for 20 photos. Living in a photo based world where literally some people take 20 selfies of themselves everyday, I don't know if the cost of film is worth it. But isn't it just the cutest darn thing you have ever seen? 

Next up are some beauty finds that I really want to own in the near future. This month has just been all about saving and lusting over items that I refuse to let myself buy. I just keep telling myself that I can buy it in California for half the price in a few days so I've been doing some serious wish listing. This Tarte Aribuki Bamboo Foundation Brush (€20) was featured in a few 2013 favourites and I was super intrigued by the look of this brush. Tarte products are starting to become the bees knees and I really have been wanting to jump on the bandwagon and own everything they make. The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (€43) just seems to be everyone's pick lately. It is supposed to be a medium to full coverage foundation which is my favourite kind and every time I see someone wearing this their skin just looks flawless. I'm definitely lusting over this baby. Lastly, and I do believe this has already shown up on a wish list I've made in the past is the NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (€25). I have personally never owned or tried an eyeshadow base, I know I have samples laying around somewhere but they're the yucky ones in a little pouch that dry out after one use so I never actually bother with those. I feel like I need to jump on the bandwagon and maybe eyeshadow bases are just that thing that makes your makeup look completely different. I just hear everyone loving this product and I want to love it too. I really wish I wasn't such a push over sometimes when it comes to hyped over beauty products. 

That's about it for right now, I wanted to include one more little pricey wish list before I go to California. My flight is officially in 5 days and that's just absolutely insane and I'm incredibly excited and nervous at the same time. 

Have any of you tried out these products? What is on your wish list right now that may just be a little pricey? Let me know, down bellow!

  6. The Fujifilm camera and film is definitely less expensive for US residence on Amazon. If you have a chance to get it this way I would suggest it. Lovely wishlist!

  9. LOL "I'm trying to convince that life will simply not go on unless I own this." You sound exactly like me. I've actually had my eye on that camera too, it's just too cute! They also have some cool ones at Urban Outfitter as well! (Although I'm not sure if they are Polaroids). When you get here we should both just give in and get them, haha.

    Love the makeup choices as well. NARS has been releasing some absolutely "to die" products lately and I'm trying to contain myself, but it is so hard.

    Can't wait to hang out with you! See you soon!

  14. The Polaroid is so cute!! But very expensive when you think about how many pictures you want to take! You're right about dabbling in high end products, once you've started, it's hard to go back!

  15. You can get samples of the Estee Lauder double wear foundation from an Estee Lauder counter. They give you around seven days Out of the sample it's fantastic you can keep going back and getting more if you don't want to pay full price for the bottle. It is definitely worth a try though. I really want one of those little cameras they are so cute I can't believe how expensive they are. I only found your blog today had a quick read through many of your posts look forward to reading more. Sophie XXX

  18. that's definitely something about being into beauty blogs, they make you want so many high end products you just can't afford or justify buying! i think everything you mentioned is also on my mental wishlist except the fuji instax because i've already got the instax 7s and the instax 210 wide and i love them both.
