Beauty Wishin'

I was lucky enough to receive a few gift cards over the holidays and since I've had a few items on my wishlist for quite some time I'm hoping to add some new goodies to my collection. I thought I'd go ahead and post my little wishlist and see if any of you have tried out these products and can let me know if they're worth the purchase. 

Some skincare picks that I've been dying to try out are the Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask and also the new Glamglow Supercleanse Daily Treatment Cleanser. Glamglow and Origins are probably my two favourite skincare brands and their products haven't disappointed me yet so I'm hoping these two could help treat my skin and keep it clear and healthy. I've also been browsing about looking for new concealers and two I've been reading up on are the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and the Tarte Creaseless Concealer. 

A new item that just came out is the Becca Lowlight/Highlight Perfecting Palette which looks like a gorgeous cream contour palette. I've been wanting to try out a cream contour and this palette looks ideal for beginners. Another palette to ogle at is the Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette in Dolce Vita. I really don't know if I have the guts to splurge on such an expensive item but it is probably one of the prettiest palettes I've seen all year.  

Nars lipsticks are pretty pricey too, but they have some of the most pigmented shades and the packaging is just so sleek and compact. I own the Dolce Vita Lip Pencil but have been wanting to pick up the shade in the lipstick formula, so a Nars Audacious Lipstick is definitely on the list. One item that has honestly been on my wishlist for over a year now is the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel, for some reason whenever I go to check out I always second guess myself with this product. Is it really worth the hype? 

Lastly two little polish bits and bops I want to try out are both by Essie - no surprise there. Essie's Fishnet Stocking is a dark rich red shade that would be perfect for those lovey dovey months coming up and Sittin Pretty appears to be a vibrant purple shade which would really pare nice with the upcoming spring. 

Have any of you tried out these products? What's on your wishlist for the New Year?

  1. Essie's Sittin Pretty looks like a cute shade, especially for summer. I love my Origins Make a Difference + gel moisturizer, so I would highly recommend that!

  10. The first item on my wishlist is definitely a nice eyeshadow palette, I like the Naked palettes as well as Full Exposure by Smashbox, but they're all so expensive! I would also love to find the perfect nude lipstick, I can't get enough of those. Happy New Year to you too! :) x

  31. I bought my first ever NARS lipstick two weeks ago in the shade Catfight and I'm now officially hooked. I want more of their lipsticks and wouldn't mind adding this shade to my pathetically small collection lol Xx

  32. I only just recently picked up the Creamy Concealer and I absolutely love it, best concealer I've tried in a long long time. I'm also a big fan of the Audacious lipsticks, I have Vera and it's beautiful, pretty much all the shades are amazing though! The Dolce Vita palette is definitely on my wishlist for 2015, it's SO pretty.

  34. I definitely recommend Benefit Gimme Brow, by far the best gel that I have tried. Good for anybody that wants to add a bit of colour to their natural brows. CT is a brand that I MUST try in 2015 x

  37. I love the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask! I recieved a travel sized tester of this when I recently purchased another Origins product and I'm so excited to buy the full sized product soon. For being an overnight mask it doesn't feel heavy or thick on the skin, it soaks in lovely and smells amazing!

    I'd also love to try out the Nars concealer and the Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palette.
