I Wish I May, I Wish I Might

As of late I've been obsessing more and more over high end beauty and new make up looks - I've been experimenting with make up WAY more than I usually do. Since I'm sort of broke at the moment (just booked a trip to Amsterdam, holla for a dollar - well actually, a LOT more than a dollar) I don't have the funds to buy new clothes for OOTDs, so I'm embarking down the 'beauty' side of my brain to create a few different posts for you guys.  I've created a list of the make up products that I'm coveting at the moment - hope this gives you inspiration for your own wishlist!
Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzer
How freaking pretty is this?! It's like a work of art! Two of my favourite things are bronzer and a lil splash of leopard print, so this item is perfect for me. Oh guys I literally want it so much, I'm getting all giddy just typing about it. Too Faced is a brand that I've never delved into before, but I've heard great things and I cannot resist beautiful packaging. I've had a love affair with Nars Laguna Bronzer since April, but it might be time to dive into new waters.
MAC Lipstick in 'Sin'
So I'm a typical blogger, obsessed with MAC lipsticks, sue me. I adore these products, and will gladly spend my £15.50 every single time. I currently own 'Spirit' and 'Mehr', which I've worn to death and am still not tired of. I've decided to purchase a bolder shade next, and Sin is a gorgeous dark brown/maroon that I know will tie in amazingly with autumnal outfits.
Benefit 'Watt's Up' Highlighter
Do you know how close I came to buying this gem at Duty Free? Answer: Extremely close. Like, in my hand at the till kind of close. Sadly, I wussed out last minute and am suffering severely from (non) buyers remorse. I love the look of this highlighter and have lusted over the metallic packaging for what feels like absolutely yonks. I need this in my life - simple as.
Urban Decay Smoky Palette
The Naked1 palette is my best friend for night's out, and I always try and create a smoky eye effect with the colours in the palette. Wait, I hear you say. Emily, hold right on up. You did know about the Naked palette specially equipped for smoky eyes didn't you? I did folks, I did (anyone who didn't must live under a rock) - and sadly I don't have it in my mitts yet. All in good time.
Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara
*Inwardly cringes at the name because I'm sickeningly British* This is a cult product I feel almost everyone has tried - bar me. I've even heard Taylor Swift uses it, and if any of you know me in the slightest, then you know that that means I have to try it out as well. The tube is pink, the brush looks divine...this is 100% on my Christmas list (never too early).
Zoeva Luxury Brush Set in 'Rose Gold'
I've never spent much money on brushes before, but since I'm practically beginning my path to adulthood I feel now is the right time to make a change. I've wanted this set of brushes for a looong time, pretty much just because of the cute case, the rose gold detailing and the fact that every man and his dog raves about them. If you want the end product to look good, you have to dedicate time to the tools.
Yep, there it is, my cute lil make up wishlist!
What are you wishing for?

  1. I'm pretty sure our beauty wish lists are basically the same haha. The Zoeva Rose Gold set is on my Christmas list for sure! I've been lusting after a dark MAC lipstick for so long as the only ones I own are nudes or bright... you know any excuse to expand my lipstick collection.
    Too Faced have the most incredible products, I'm leaning towards buying the Born This Way foundation but that bronzer is beautiful! Lovely wish list. xx
