My Current Beauty Wish List – Summer 2014

At any given time I have at least 5-9 products in my Sephora.com shopping cart.  If I go back and still really want the item, it stays, if it was just an impulse, I kick it to the curb. This is how I rationalize my purchases. Judge all you want, it works for me (and I think in some way I can blame my Mother for teaching me this technique). If only Sephora used the common practice of sending coupons after you leave an item in the cart, but alas, they know there is no need, as we will eventually pay full price.

These are the products that have stuck around in my cart this season and I am dying to get my hands on.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette 

I have had my eye on the Ambient Lighting Powders for awhile now, but haven’t been able to bring myself to pay the $45 for a single product. This palette provides three shades of this powder for only $58, so it is certainly much more budget friendly. Yes, I realize how ridiculous it is that I just said $60 is budget friendly for a block of powder.

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara 

With a name like Iconic, I am already won over to try this product. Dior’s mascaras have always been highly rated and my lashes have absolutely no curl so I am dying to try this and see if it lives up to the hype.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Beige  

Once again, Jaclyn Hill has won me over with her rants and raves for this classic product from Bobbi Brown. I have always wanted to add a Shimmer Brick to my make up collection, but couldn’t decide on the right color. This Brick has a perfect champagne color with a brown base that is sure to compliment my skin tone. I want to use this on my cheekbones, brow bones…basically any bones that are naturally highlighted.

Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow Collection 

I may have ever color shadow possible, but I always come back to the same neutrals that are always flattering. Champagne, soft pink, matte browns, creams, they never fail you. This palette has rave reviews on being the perfect every day palette for that natural, no make up, make up look. You know, cause that makes sense? Anyways, it has caught my eye and I love my Chocolate Bar palette by Too Faced, so this is a must have.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation 

I think that I will forever be on the hunt for the perfect foundation. There will always be a better technology that comes out, so I will always be up for trying something new. In this case, this is a tried and true classic. I have never heard a bad review about Estee Lauder Double Wear. It is supposed to have a natural finish, last 15 hours and stay true to color, what more could you want?

Make Up Geek Blush – Spellbound 

If you haven’t discovered Make Up Geek yet, I recommend that you run, not walk, to their website and check them out. They have fantastic eye shadows that are completely on par with MAC and many are exact dupes of your favorite shades, but oh so much cheaper!

When they came out with their blush line, I knew I was going to want to buy each of them. My girl Jaclyn Hill did reviews and swatches of all the blushes and oh boy was I not disappointed. Of course, these blushes have sold out, but I am anxiously awaiting their re-stock so I can pick up Spellbound, I mean, look at how gorgeous it looks on JHill.

Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer 

I need this in my life. It is so difficult to find the perfect bronzer, I don’t want a bunch of shimmer on my face like I am in middle school, I just want a healthy glow that looks natural. The No Bronzer Bronzer is like no bronzer that you have used before, a liquid bronzer that is not just meant for a night out on the town. This bronzer is supposed to be subtle, but buildable and can be easily used to contour (which my naturally round face is in desperate need of) so sounds like perfection. This little guy has been sold out at Sephora for weeks, but hopefully it finds its way into my shopping cart once it is back in stock.

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Honey Bath 

This is an item that is completely unnecessary, but I think everyone deserves a little bit of luxury in their lives. Yes. A $45 bubble bath is a total splurge/luxury/pampering item, but oh man do I love a bubble bath.Youtuber Zoella included this in one of her monthly favorites and I have been eye’ing it ever since. I love a pamper night, light some candles, slather on a face mask (maybe a deep conditioning hair mask too), glass of wine, good book and slip into a bubble bath. I think this honey bath sounds like the perfect companion to a pamper night and what could be better than drizzling the product into the warm water with the honeycomb dipstick.

What is currently on your beauty wish list?

Or should I say what is waiting for you to press “purchase” in your online shopping carts? I have a feeling many of your beauty wish list items will find their way into my shopping cart as well!
