2016 Beauty Wish List


Today I thought I'd share with you my wish list of beauty products for the new year. Throughout last year I always find myself discovering products that I wish to purchase, therefore I place them on a little 'wishlist' on my phone. I then tend to decide when to treat myself every month with something off my wish list. It definitely makes it easier to remember what I was interested in at the time, as I never can remember everything. 

Here I have gathered up some products that I am looking to buy throughout the new year. Some of these products are new finds of mine and others are off recommendations or products I want to test out that are popular in the beauty world. These products never stay the same. I almost add to my wish list everyday so I can never get everything immediately. You may see reviews of these products on the blog in the future as I hopefully get to purchase them!

First things first, there are many different palettes I have been eyeing up recently as I have started experimenting with my make up and crawling out of my comfort zone. I have been loving some of the Mac eyeshadow palettes, theres too many to pick from. But when it come to deciding what look and colour suited me the most I decided I wanted to experiment with burgundy shades. So therefore the eyeshadow palette I am looking to purchase this year is the Mac Burgundy x 9 Palette. It has such a beautiful hue of shades and I particularly like the size and how compact the palette is, definitely a plus. 

Another palette that I have meaning to purchase over the last year when it was at it's peak is of course the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. I know that this is so raved about as a contour palette, but I have never convinced myself to purchase it, no matter how much I wanted to as I always settled for my high street palettes that I thought worked very well for me. But i've decided that this is the year I will purchase this palette. I have high hopes that this will change my make up game. 

A second contour method that I would love to try to see how it works is the Clinique Chubby Sculpting Contour Stick. For me I think this would be a very easy way to contour and to get it right for beginners. I have been contouring for ages now but would still like to try this as I have only used powders to contour.

I have been recently doing some beauty research into blush. I personally don't pick to wear blush and don't own any individual blushes. I recently saw a make up tutorial on youtube which made me fall in love with the Nars Orgasm Blush. It's such a lovely coral toned blush and I can't wait to see what it looks like with my make up looks. 

I'd be lying if I said there's only 2 lipsticks that I want for the whole year. But these are the 2 main ones that I would like the purchase. This year is the year for me to start building up my lipstick collection. The first one obviously a Mac Lipstick in Peachstock. I'm a lover of nude lipsticks and struggle to purchase anything else and this is one the mac lipsticks I have been wanting to try. The second lipstick that is more of a high end lipstick is the Charlotte Tilbury Nude Kate lipstick. I have had this on my wishlist for a while now but keep shying away from the price. Again, a beautiful nude with a hydrating formula, perfect for the winter months. I have also included a liquid lipstick in my selection and this the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Aphrodite. I love the concept of a liquid lipsticks but my lips have always been to dry to try them. Now I've treated my lips for their dryness I would love to give one a go. This particular colour honestly wows me. It's such a nice pinky nude with such a glow and would look amazing with my make up looks. 

I have included one concealer and one primer in my wish list. I have heard so many good reviews about these 2 products. The concealer is the Nars Creamy Concealer. I have seen so many you tubers use this concealer in every single one of their make up tutorials and have high reviews of it. I would have to do more research into what colour I would be, but after watching tutorials on this concealer the consistency looks perfect and It looks like it blends in easily. I can't wait to try this one out. 

The primer mentioned in the Marc Jacobs Beauty Undercover Coconut Primer. This is the most recent beauty product on my wishlist. I have tried out only a few primers. I am currently using the Nivea Post Shaving Balm for Men. I know, your probably thinking why does that work?! It honestly sticks your make up to your face and gives it a flawless finish for hours. Moving on from that I would really like to try a Marc Jacobs product as I never have before. The packaging looks so sleek and clean, which is what attracts me. Reading the description on the website makes me think that it would provide me with such a flawless finish whilst hydrating my complexion, just sounds like a dream! 

Onto the most important part of my face, the brows. I have honestly only ever used 2 brow products my whole life. These are both hughstreet but they have worked out perfect for me. I get HD brows done so I don't need to worry about shaping my brows as such, more filling them in. I currently use a pencil, with setting wax and brow gel. I do want to move on from the pencil and more onto a crayon product. Thats when I discovered the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. The texture that this product gives looks like it's an easy product to use and it will just glide on, which is what I like. There's nothing worse than your brows taking you longer than your whole make up look, it has to be made easy, right?! So I look forward to investing in this product. 

Stepping out of the make up zone and onto skincare. The Illamasqua collection is something that I have lusted over for ages. The design of these products is amazingly beautiful. The concept behind the gel formula in the Hydra Veil, keeping it refreshed and ready to use is very clever and one of the main reasons why i'd love to try their products. I do have dry skin and this product sounds so refreshing and hydrating. One plus on this product is that it can act as a primer as well. This will definitely be something I am indulging into this year.
