Hello everyone! I got this cool tag idea from Polished and Inspired to do a post about makeup wants and wishlists. I tag anyone who wants to do it as well!
1. What is the next makeup item you’re planning on buying?
This is honestly such a hard question, because there are a million things I always plan on buying, but never actually end up buying. I think the next thing I’ll actually buy will be something that I need. Most likely the Diamond Setting Powder from Winky Lux, I got a travel size of that in my Ipsy a few months ago and I really love it! On top of being a setting powder, it also has a “blurring” effect, and comes in skin tone shades rather than a translucent powder, which seems to work better for me. My skin tends to be on the dry side of normal, so a lot of loose powders sit weirdly on my face, and the natural colour tones help eliminate flashback in photos.
2. If you could walk into Sephora today and buy any item (regardless of budget), what would it be?
Probably a highlighter of some kind. I have a few that I use right now; an Urban Decay eyeshadow, one of the shades from the Nyx contour palette, and two stick highlighters in a bronze-y gold shade. While I like them all, my ideal highlight is sort of a champagne gold colour. With this in mind, I’d likely get the Laura Mercier Magic Hour Face Highlighting palette as it comes with four shades, including a light gold.
3. What is the oldest item on your Sephora “loves” list?
I just made a new account, so I don’t have any older than a few months. I guess one item that I would definitely repurchase is the Naked 3 palette, mine has gone “weird” since I got it. So I suppose that one is on my metaphorical “loves” list.
4. What is the newest item on your Sephora “loves” list?
Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette. I treat my loves list like a wishlist of sorts, so this isn’t something I’ve actually tried. I really like the warm holiday colours which I think is perfect for Christmas. I just ordered three new palettes the other day, so I don’t think I’ll get this palette this year, but if it’s still in stores a year from now, I’ll probably get it.
5. What perfume is at the top of your wishlist?
I honestly have no idea! I live off of samples and body sprays.
6. What is the new release that you’re looking forward to most?
This is another one I’m not too sure of…I’ve only recently started keeping up with all the new releases and launches, and I’ve spent a lot of money on makeup recently, so I need to rein it back in that department.
7. Are there any drugstore products that you want, but haven’t pulled the trigger on yet?
There’s quite a few! Nearly every time I go to the drugstore I see something that I want to try. Drugstore products are getting really good as well, and many brands can easily compete with the brands found in Sephora, although I still find drugstore brands to be a bit more “hit and miss”. One thing I know has amazing reviews are the Wet n Wild highlighters, and since that brand has such a good price point, I’ll probably get this one in the near future.
8. The eyeshadow palette you’re lusting after the most:
Sooooo many, since my eyeshadow collection wore thin on my weird makeup hiatus. As I mentioned earlier, I’ve ordered three palettes, so I suppose the one that is the “loftiest” is the Too Faced Dream Queen set. I doubt I’ll be able to get it, but we’ll see!
9. Product you’re waiting for your next birthday or Christmas to ask for:
I honestly don’t know, my family mostly just gets me giftcards to Sephora or MAC at this point, there aren’t many good makeup stores around where I grew up.
10. What is the item that you’re dying to have that is not available in your country/area?
There’s a ton of brands that for some reason, don’t sell in Canada. One product I’m obsessed with that doesn’t sell in Canada (yet) is BioBelle masks. I got one in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and reviewed them in a few posts back, but they currently do not ship to Canada 😦
11. What is the thing that you really want but you’ll never buy because it’s “too expensive”?
I like using all of that law of attraction stuff, so I don’t ever like to deem something “too expensive”, as I hope one day not to have to worry about that! But I suppose something at the moment that I can’t afford, but want badly, is a GHD hair straightener. I really need a new straightener, seeing as I don’t have one at all right now, but I might have to settle for something else. I really want to invest in a good one though; my last one lasted nearly ten years, so I’d like to see what a GHD can do!
12. If there was a beauty product Genie who could grant you one wish, what would you wish for?
OK, this one is probably the easiest! I’d ask for unlimited money to buy makeup with! This question didn’t have anything about limitations for unlimited things, so I’m going to seize that opportunity 🙂
This post was a lot of fun for me to do, but I realised while writing it how “fair” my standards are when it comes to makeup, in the sense that I don’t feel too stressed about needing the latest new release. I’m not sure why it took me so long to write another blog post, but I’ll have more reviews (and some makeup looks) soon 🙂
