Hello All 🙂
Today I’m going to round up the beauty products that are topping my wishlist for March, so far. There are a lot of items that I have my eye on, that if I’m honest with myself I just don’t need. This is why I add them to my wishlist so that I can stare at them and pine :).
I was thinking the other day about high end versus drug store products, and it struck me that in the majority of cases we probably do pay over the odds for the packaging and look of a product rather than the actual performance of the product itself.
I am guilty of this too, in particular watching I Covet Thee she showed how the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes that were recently launched are amazing dupes for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes. The price difference here is around £25 – £30! Nonetheless, some of the products that are on this list will probably fall into this category, but I do believe there are still some that live up to their price in both appearance AND performance.
Here is a collage of the products I am drooling over this month:
I saw this Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Eyeshadow in a Youtube video by Kaushal Beauty and it looked so beautiful. It is essentially a foil that you pack onto the eyelid and it looks so shiny and striking. It’s pretty damn pricey but it doesn’t stop me looking at it numerous times! This is the kind of eyeshadow that you’d wear on a pretty glam night out, it’s definitely not a day time eyeshadow. The shade I’m lusting over is ‘Vintage Black Gold’ :).
This illuminator is an iridescent cool toned highlight, which would look amazing dabbed onto the cheekbones and brow bone. One thing I love about the tube is that it would last you ages, although its pricey I bet it would keep going for years!
This Benefit mascara has probably seen a massive dip in sales for Benefit recently simply due to the incredible popularity of ‘They’re Real’ and the brand spanking new ‘Roller Lash’ mascara launch. For me, I’ve used cheaper mascaras like the Maybelline ‘The Falsies’ but the Bad Gal Lash is 100% my most favourite.
One can never have too many lip products! I’ve heard Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup rave about these, pretty sure she had one of each colour! The rosey shade is the one I have my eye on, but again I don’t really feel like I can justify this kind of purchase. I really hate sticky lip glosses so from what I’ve heard about this they would be perfect.
I think blushes might be the beauty product that I own the most of. This brightening brick isn’t all about glitter and shine, but illuminating the face (the parts that you want to) in a subtle and natural way :). I like the peach toned and pink toned blushes the most out of this range, and I’m sure you could use a smaller brush to pick out the highlighter colours.
The grand total for my March Wishlist isssss:
