Believe it or not, but it actually took me hours and hours to complete this list, as I had to think carefully about what products I really want or what products I actually need.
This is not really a wish list, but more of a shopping list of the products that I plan to buy in the near future. Of course, I could add more, but I’ve decided to be very strict with myself so every item got on the list after a lot of consideration and is very covetable…
So here is the list!
1. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, £26
I have almost finished my Benefit eye pencil and I am definitely getting an Hourglass one next.
2. Matte Eye Shadows Palette
I can’t decide if I should get the Too Faced Matte Eye Shadow Collection (£24.57 from Beauty Bay) or theBalm Meet Matte ($42 from the brand’s website, but they are in the process of creating a European shop, as well). I actually really love the eye shadow quality from both brands: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches, theBalm Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette Review and Swatches and the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review and Swatches so that’s a hard one. I only wish Too Faced palette weren’t so bulky. Maybe I should get both?!
3. Cream Blusher
That is probably the last thing that I need, considering how many I have but I’ve decided that I can get one, as a treat for myself. After a lot of consideration, I’ve chosen Stila’s Stila Convertible Colour (I actually can’t believe that I still haven’t tried it!) I think I’ll get Rose or Lillium (£15.12 from Beauty Bay)
Now this is the category of the products that I need. There are a lot of skincare products that I want and the list is endless but theseRead More
If you are not a cream blusher gal, you may get excited about these new pretties from theBalm. They are called Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush and they are supposed to be very long-lasting.
I personally haven’t tried the brand’s blushers (yet) I’ve but heard only great things about them! If only it was easier to find the brand here. Hopefully some of the EU/UK on-line shops will start stocking these blushers in the future. But it actually looks like theBalm are in the process of creating the European shop on their website.
There areRead More
Remember the original Meet Matt(e) palette by theBalm? Well, guess what? The brand just released the new version which is called Meet Matt(e) Nude.
And I think I need it. You get nine nude matte eye shadows. I can already see that I don’t have several shades in my collection. Plus it’s not that easy to find good quality matte eye shadows, and theBalm’s definitely are!

So far you can only pre-order this palette at their official website for $42 (they’ll ship on the 18th). But I do hope that the lovely Matt(e) will make it to Feel Unique, as most of theBalm’s palettes do.
theBALM is one those smaller brands that I personally really like. I have only tried their eye shadows (Nude Tude and Shady Lady) but I have read a lot of great reviews about other products, especially blushes, bronzers and highlighters. I definitely plan on getting more of their products in the future.
I am actually very excited about the brand’s new palette which is called Balm Jovi. Not only it looks amazing but I love the concept, of course!
You get: 12 eyeshadows that can be used wet or dry, highlighter, matte-peach blush, two multi-purpose creamy cheek and lip colors.
I love the names and some of the bands I do love, too. Seriously, how cool is this palette? And it’s onlyRead More
the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol. 2 (£38/ $39.50) is one of my favourites!
It comes in a Zebra palette with a nice mirror and nine eye shadows, some of them can be also used as the liners.
