The Beauty Wishlist

I'm back with another wishlist post. As you might know, I recently moved out from living with my parents to share an apartment with my boyfriend. Now that I have to pay for rent, electricity, heat, etc, I can't really afford to go on weekly trips to Sephora anymore (not that I really could when I was doing it anyway). This has left me lusting after so many beauty products it's crazy - you always want what you can't have, right? 

As usual, most things I'm after are to give the skin a glow. I've seen rave after rave of the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, and it sounds like it's right up my alley. I usually skip priming my face, but if I had a primer this beautiful I certainly wouldn't skip out on using it. Another beaut from BECCA that I'm lusting after is their Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, but I still can't decide if I want the Poured or Pressed version. I'm a sucker for a cream highlight, but I'm so in love with the pressed formula and have been using mostly powder highlights these days.

In my last wishlist, I mentioned how smitten I was over the Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Powder Duo in Moodlight. I'm still swooning over it, but the NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Craving may do as an acceptable and somewhat cheaper alternative. It looks just similar enough that it may just take my mind off of the Tom Ford.

The last highlighting bit I'm yearning for is one of the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits. I can't get over how beautiful the Gleam kit is, and the Starlight Illuminator has become my favorite highlight - I feel like I need it. The pinky-champagne shades in this palette look absolutely stunning and like colors I'd use all the time.

The last few things on my list are all nude lip products. I've recently fallen back in love with the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, and I own Lolita and Bow N Arrow. The next shade I'm after is Lovesick, a really pretty pinky-mauve nude. It looks like the perfect everyday shade, and I think it would look stunning mixed with either of the two shades I already have. Now, just to find it in stock.

Another nude I've been lusting after is the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Aquarius, part of their new collection with KathleenLights. I've seen swatches that compare this to the CandyK shade from the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits, although this isn't matte. It's still a gorgeous pinky beige nude shade though, and seeing as the Kylie Lip Kits are pretty much impossible to get your hands on, I'd definitely go for this one instead.

The final piece on my wishlist is the MAC Lip Pencil in Dervish. MAC's lip pencils are my favorite formula for lip liners, and Dervish is a really pretty pinky nude (again - sorry for sounding like a broken record here). Every time I'm at a MAC counter I end up swatching this lip liner before reading the name, so I don't really know how I've managed to go this long without buying it.

What do you have on your wishlist?
