With the Sephora sale coming up this week, I thought I would share my wish list. Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of things I want this time. Although I won’t be getting every single item in this list, I will definitely be picking from it!
I’ve been lusting after so many palettes lately, and I especially have a problem with buying limited edition palettes (most of the palettes I own are LE), because you can never get them again! These are the top two palettes I have been wanting:
1. Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
This palette doesn’t arrive in stores until April 15th so it won’t be part of the VIB sale, but I’m including anyways because it IS still part of my wish list. The chances of me getting my grubby hands on this palette at all are slim to none since it has been selling out like CRAZY online…but the fact that it’s hard to get a hold of makes it even more desirable, lol! I love the peachy tones contained in this palette. And the fact that the shadows smell like peach? Yeah, that marketing ploy totally got me (what is it with us humans being obsessed with our makeup smelling good?) I don’t own any of the ever-popular Chocolate Bar palettes or the Chocolate Bon-Bons palette, so this purchase might be justified, no? 😉 The reviews of this palette haven’t been spectacular, so I don’t know. Do I buy it because it’s LE but not perfect?
2. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Palette
One thing about me is that I LOVE all things related to the sea or ocean (I tried to convince my fiancé to have a beach/ocean-themed wedding, which fits because we got engaged in Hawaii…but he said it would be weird to have a beach-themed wedding in a land-locked city 😦 He may have a point, but I’m not telling him that.) ANYWAYS. These shades in this palette are right up my alley. As much as I love these colours, I find it weird to have a sea inspired palette with all neutral shades and not even one blue or green for a pop of colour. I know that the reason behind the name of this collection is not because it’s just a aquatic-themed line, but because the feature ingredient used in the line is algae from the sea…but still. From a practical standpoint though, it doesn’t really matter because I wouldn’t use blue or green anyways 😛
3. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper
This was on my last wish list for the November VIB sale and I didn’t purchase it at the time – I’m definitely going to get it this time as I am really in need a new liquid liner.
- Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Although I heard about the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder from Stashy and do really want to try it for setting my under eye concealer, I have been using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder to set this area and it has been doing wonders. I’m currently running out of the all-over face powder I’ve been using (Shiseido Translucent Loose Powder), so I think I might give the Translucent Loose Setting Powder a go first.
2. Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup
Right now, I’m in the market for a foundation. I rarely wear foundation and I hate shopping for it because everything looks cakey on my super dry skin. Also, MUAs always try to colour match me to foundations that are way too orange for my skin, because my skin tone is definitely on the warmer side. I tried this foundation on two weeks ago at Sephora. When I first applied it, it accentuated the dry patches on my face, so I put it back thinking this product would be a big no. However, when I got home an hour later, I realized that the product must have sunk into my skin, because the dry patches were no longer accentuated. It felt quite light on my skin and the shade was also a perfect match, so I think I might get this.
3. Urban Decay Naked Skin Correcting Fluid
If you’ve been to Sephora lately, the big thing that’s on display these days is colour correcting products (this time last year was contour kits). I have some severe dark circles under my eyes that have always been the bane of my existence. I’ve found that just concealing isn’t enough to get rid of those bad boys, so I kind of want to try out colour correcting. There are a lot of brands with colour correcting products out there right now, but since the formula of the UD concealers is supposed to be really good, I would like to try their version of the correctors. The one pictured above is green, which is used to correct redness – I think I’m going to go for peach or yellow to cancel out my dark under eye area.
I’m sure I’m going to pick up extra goodies while I’m in the store, but this is all I am eyeing for now. What’s on your Sephora wish list? I would love to get more ideas to add to my own list! 😛
