I feel shameful typing this post. I learnt a ton about myself during the 1/2 year no-buy, but having a wish list afterwards feels like I'm throwing some of my experience away. Being a beauty junkie, I haven't stopped my fancy for new products and brushes! While I haven't spend money on beauty I've been carefully observing new launches and promising items. I feel I'm even smarter where I'm going to spend my hard earned $$$. I've put together a wish list and I thought I'd share it with you. Let me know in the comments if you've tried these and what has intrigued you lately!
Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted SPF 30
I have firm love for my Holy Grail moisturizer (January Labs Revitalizing Day Cream review here) and sunscreen (Innisfree Perfect UV Protection Cream review here), but Josh Rosebrook's skincare line keeps impressing me while one of my favorite Youtubers, L'amour et la Musique, has spoken favourable things about this SPF moisturizer. It's pricey, but I'm considering it. I'd also like to repurchase the cleanser from this line.
Viseart Warm Mattes palette
If you've tried Viseart, I could just leave this here without any reasoning. You'd understand. Their eyeshadows are such superb quality, pigmented yet buildable, soft without being too powdery. I enjoy my Neutral Mattes and Cool Mattes palettes a lot and I know I'd get a lot of use out of the Warm one. I think there's nothing prettier than a simple warm eye look, mascara and dewy skin. Definitely high on my wish list!
Burberry Contour Stick in Medium 01
I've been meaning to try Burberry's infamous Earthy blush for ages, but now I'm even more intrigued by the new contour sticks. What I've seen from videos this contour stick blends like a dream - no wonder, Burberry's makeup is top quality. Looks perfect for natural, skin-like contouring.
Jordan Samuel skin cleanser and hydrating serum
Jordan Samuel's skincare has been so hyped up in the eco beauty community, but not in that annoying, pushy way. People genuinely seem to love his products, which are said to be efficient but don't break the bank. I need a new makeup removing cleanser and usually I go for oils or balms that break down makeup. I'm intrigued if this creamy After Show Treatment cleanser (Plié) lives up to its claims. I also need a new hydrating/antioxidant serum, something to compete with Kypris Antioxidant Dew, Luxe Botanics Camu serum or Pestle and Mortar Hyaluronic Serum. I have my doubts, but I'm willing to try!
Chikuhodo Z-10 pointed eyeshadow brush
This eyeshadow brush is a beauty from Chikuhodo's Z series. I tried to convince myself I don't need it as I have several pencil brushes, but nothing like this! Z-10 looks extremely soft, precise and having some flexibility, which my current pencil brushes are lacking. I would like to try it for blending and diffusing color on the lower lash line, like Karima McKimmie does in several of her videos.
Sonia G. brush set
One of the December highlights was when Sonia of Sweet Makeup Temptations announced she would release a Japan-made brush set with Beautylish. If someone should have their own brush set, it's the Fude Goddess Sonia! Designed to "bring joy to your makeup ritual", I'm eyeing several brushes from this set. I probably wait for the individual release and collect the brushes little by little - luckily they are not a limited edition. The handle design is just stunning and Beautylish has released other amazing brushes in the past!
That's it! I'd say my list is.. acceptable. Are you eyeing anything right now? Perhaps mentally preparing for the January sales? Let me know in the comments! Happy holidays!
