April 2013 Beauty Wish List: Makeup, Skincare and Hair Care

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!

Makeup

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)

Skincare

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 these

Beauty Related Things That Inspired Me This Week

Today my  post is about the products, videos and makeup looks that caught my attention this week.

For the last several days  I have been browsing US beauty websites  like a mad woman to figure out what products I need/want to get as my friend kindly agreed to get me some.

I am not going to post my whole wish list or everything that caught my attention but here is the new Cle de Peau Vintage Holiday Palette which some of you may like. But as it is CdP the price is not cheap – $125.

I know that a lot of  people are sick and tired of Fashion Weeks by now but I love looking at the makeup anyway… So here is the one that I really liked.

It’s a makeup from Gucci by Pat McGrath. And of course, I am waiting for Dior show…

And I know some may
