My Cosmetics Wishlist!

I've been finding myself at Sephora a lot lately, browsing the pretty racks eye shadows, lipsticks, and blush.  What is it about that place that makes it total girl heaven?  Is it the smell of perfume and powder?  The bright lights?  The clean, modern color scheme?  Or maybe it’s just that wonderful feeling of treating yourself to a tiny, expensive new toy (or three.)

My makeup-browsing trips are getting more frequent lately, and I’ve been eyeing lots of pretty products, and getting excited to try new things.  For instance, I recently started wearing darker eyeliner, in thicker layers.   For years, my signature look has focused mostly on blush and lipstick.  I could care less about eyeliner!  But this summer, I decided to change my look around, and now I’m hooked!  I do a liquid on top and pencil on the bottom.   Dark brown…  black is still a little too intense for me!

Anyway!  Here are a few products that I'm excited to get my hands on.

  tarte cosmetics

1. Tarte Cosmetics blush
I mentioned my affinity for blush, no?  J  I’ve heard a ton of great stuff about their cheek stains, but now I just want to try everything from this brand!  I’m a sucker for a good blush, and Tarte seems to have some great options.  I’m dying to try the Amazonian clay 12-hour blush.  The colors look sooo lovely. 

2. Tarte LipSurgence lip tint- matte
I’m always on the lookout for a good lip product.  I wear lipstick most of the time, but the problem is, it gets too dry.  Yet, I’m not in love with the super-shiny look of lip gloss anymore.  I feel like a matte lip tint is the perfect in-between.   I’m dying to try the colors Hope, Envy, and Fiery!

3. Nars lip pencil
My trusty MAC cedar lip pencil is about to run out, and I’m looking to try something new.  I’m really intrigued by these lip pencils by NARS.  NARS is a brand that evokes glamour and maturity for me.  I do own two of their blushes already, which I love.  But I’d love to try out something else from their product range!

4. Benefit “They’re Real!” Mascara
Some of you know, I use false eyelashes whenever I’m going out, or having my picture taken J  But wouldn’t it be great to just slap on some mascara and have it look like the same thing?  Putting on falsies can be a labor of love, but I’m all for taking the easy route.  

5. Laura Mercier Lip Glace

I know I just said that I don’t like gloss, but these are the exception.  They’re not like ultra glossy sheen gloss… they’re just perfect.  This is another “mature” brand.  But I already own one of these lip glaces.  And something about when I wear it just makes me feel expensive.   They’ve got a few other colors I want to try… I want more!

Have a great weekend, everyone!!

  1. ooh, these are nice! I'm a big fan of eyeliner (i just started wearing it too), there's nothing more chic than cat eyes xx

    Little Blue Backpack

  2. The Benefit mascara is supposed to be bad ass. I want it, too!

  3. I've been eyeing a Tarte blush, too, but don't want to spend the money, haha. I also SO want one of Paul & Joe's cat-shaped lipsticks, but I'd never use it :p.

    Have a fun weekend!

  4. There real never really worked for me :( I love the tarte blushes, but for lip pencils I think The revlon ones are a better deal!

  5. I want to try #2!!! I've been lusting after a good matte tint. Jen and I had a makeup shopping spree earlier in the week, and bought lots of e.l.f. products (I still can't get over their price, and that they're amazingly good. I mean, that should be illegal! But not, because we love them.) I'm also loving Maybelline's Baby Lips line, and their Color Show nail polish!

  6. I'd love to have the blush and the lip pencil! My lipstick game has totally changed since I started using lip pencils and I generally love NARS products. Great picks :) xx

  7. yum, I have a think for lip gloss/tint/chapstick.. so I want that one. haha

  8. They're Real mascara is what I am currently using- but I only have the sample size from Sephora from my birthday gift! Another reason to love Sephora, eh? I want the real tube!!!! XO

    love, polly

  9. Hi! Found you through the awesome blog hop. New GFC follower! I'm a total makeup junkie/enthusiast, and the Benefit Get Real mascara is AMAZING!! ! The brush has these teeny little rubber spikes that coat every single lash, even in the corners. If you are looking for something a little less expensive, I just started using the Maybeline The Falsies Big Eyes. It has 2 brushes, one for upper, one for lower, and I've been getting great results!!! The Tarte LipSurgence is a great product, but a bit drying. I usually just put some lipbalm on after the product set. OK, I could talk makeup for HOURS. Thanks for hosting a great linkup.

    1. wow, thank you for this in-depth review! i might try the maybelline one. currently using cover girl lash blast :)
