Sephora Wish List

Today I thought I would share my Sephora Wish List, or Bucket List, items that I hope one day I would like to own. Below are the items that have been on my wish list for a while or items that I’ve recently heard about through friends and youtubers. Hopefully, soon, I will be picking up these items over time. 

Perricone MD – Hypoallergenic Firming Eye Cream : Since I am getting older and lines and bags are getting more define on my face, I want to start investing in Eye Creams and other firming moisturizers and lotions. I’ve been using this brand of moisturizer for a while now and i really love it and I thought that eye cream would be a great investment to my skin.

Murad – Time Release Acne Cleanser : I’ve heard a lot about this brand by multiple Youtubers and I’m hoping to get my hands on this soon. I do suffer from adult acne every once in a while and I think that this product would help combat acne break outs and spots and blemishes. It seems like it’s light, yet very powerful.

Kat Von – D Lock It Tattoo Foundation :  I’ve been using Kat Von D’s pressed powder foundation for the last two years and it give amazing coverage even on it’s own. I really like full coverage foundations and since this foundation is called “Tattoo” foundation, I’m sure that I will get awesome coverage from this liquid foundation as well.

Hourglass – Veil Mineral Primer : Right now, I am currently using Benefit’s POREfessional Primer and I am currently loving it, but I’m hoping switch things up and try out the Hourglass Primer. I have really oily skin and since the name has “Mineral” in it, it sounds very light and natural. I’ve heard of this product through Youtubers and beauty bloggers all the time and I’m excited to hopefully try this out soon.

Buxom – True Nude Lip Foundation : This product claims to have long lasting power and claims to be smooth, which really caught my attention. My lips can get chapped really easily and I’m hoping that these claims will be true. Also, this item claims to match your lip color and give a “better than your lip color” natural color. I’m hooked!

Benefit Cosmetics – Boi-ing Concealer : Since I am a new lover of Benefit Cosmetics, I really want to try out their tried and true concealers. Ever since I started to dabble in make up, I’ve always heard about this product from friends and Youtubers a like. I’ve this product last and blends easily into to the skin while still concealing imperfections and blemishes. I want it!

Tarte – Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara : I don’t know what makes this smart, but this mascara looks like it has an amazing wand that while definitely lift and separate the lashes. This product claims to lengthen, condition, and repair your lashes, while hydrating and making your lashes healthier, which is always a plus. I’ve used another Tarte mascara and it is not disappointing.

Clinique – Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour : I’ve never really tried many products from Clinique, except for one old liptstick that my sister had laying around and it’s pretty good for being as old as it is. I’ve never used a stick formula contour before, so I thought that Clinique would be a great start. And because it is a stick form, it seems like it would be more precise in terms of where you want your contour to show and to start, I’d just have to practice blending out the harsh lines.

Nars – The Multiple : I only own one thing from Nars and that is there infamous blush in Orgasm. Because their products are on the higher end and I want to start to dabble more into their brand, why not use a product that has multiple uses? This product can be used for eyes, lips, body, and will give your skin an amazing glow… as it claims, which caught my attention. I’m really eager to give this try.

Smashbox – Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder : I have one product from Smashbox which is their BB cream, which I really love because it gives great coverage while still being light on the skin. When I saw this product and read the description, I had a feeling that I would really enjoy this product. This product claims to keep your skin hydrated while keeping your skin radiant. Also, this product claims to minimize signs of aging… we’ll see about that… Also, what caught my attention was that it has different packaging than most pressed powders in that you shave off only what you need and avoid mess! I need this!

IMG_9603

Today, I thought I’d share with you my “Face of the Day” of my everyday products. Shown above are the products that I use on a daily basis. These products are some of my favorite and reliable products. I’ll start from left to right:

L’Oreal Colour Richie in Silky Java: The lipstick is a great neutral lipstick that easy glides on and a smooth a rich finish.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35 in Light: This is a light weight BB cream that gives great coverage on a casual day out. It last all day!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: I’m still getting use to using pencil brow products rather than powders or wax, but I’m loving this product. The pencil can give a natural look to fill in your brows and you can brush it out with the other end of the product.   

Tarte Amazonia Clay Waterproof Concealer in Light: This concealer gives great natural coverage with all day lasting power.

Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder: If you like to contour your face, this product gives a great natural shape to your face. It easily blends and doesn’t give any shimmer to give off a natural finish.

Maybelline Line Stiletto Eyeliner in Blackest Black: This product has been one of my favorites for a long time. This product gives a great opaque black color and last all day with greasy lids.

bareMinerals READY Blush in The One: I love this blush! A little bit goes a long way with this blush. The color is a nice natural rose color that looks great with all skin types.

Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara: This mascara does not clump. No matter how much you put on, it does not clump which is a great plus. This product last all day and easy to apply.

Benefit’s thePOREfessional: This product has easily become a holy grail product of mine. It keeps my skin oil and shine free and helps keep my make up on all day.

Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Powder Foundation in Medium 57: This powder foundation is a great full coverage foundation. Even without concealer or liquid foundation, it gives great coverage regardless. And also, a little goes a long way.

Here are some of my thoughts on the products included! Enjoy!

Chloe Rollerball: I’m not really one to dabble in perfumes, but I’m am so excited to try this out! It gives a great floral scent, which I love, and it’s not too over powering. It’s great size to just throw into your bag and to reapply throughout the day. I love how simple the look and smell is.

Formula X Nail Color in Ignite: I love this color! Dark maroon shades are my most favorite shades for nail polishes, next to black. I’ve heard that this nail polish has great lasting power and is extremely opaque. And I think this shade is flattering on most skin types and will go with all types of outfits.

Benefit Cosmetics – They’re Real Mascara in Jet Black: I’ve heard so many good things about this mascara. Like I said in my last post, I love mascaras and anytime a mascara promises volume, I’m there! The brush on this mascara looks amazing and seems like they would really get deep into the lashes and volumize them.

Benefit Cosmetics – The POREfessional: I have huge pores and I get pretty greasy (TMI? I don’t care) and I think this would help with my pore issues! I’ve heard that this product is amazing and really helps with minimizing pores. I’m a little sad this product is so small, but I’m excited to try it!

Josie Maran – 100% Pure Argon Oil: I’ve heard amazing things about this product and that you can use it on your hands, your hair, and other parts of your body that are dry. Along with my oiliness, I also have dry skin as well. I’ve heard that this really helps moisturize hands and hair.

Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream – Broad Spectrum SPF 35: I love trying different BB creams/tinted moisturizes. I think that these type of products are great for those days were you just want minimal coverage or when you’re running out the door. And because this is Smashbox, I’m sure that this product will give great coverage.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray: I’ve heard so much about this product from different bloggers and Youtubers. It’s suppose to give great and natural waves. Just with a few sprits you can great beachy and natural waves.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Sin: This eye shadow has amazing sheen to it and is a great crease color to give great depth to your eyes. I think that this color can go great with any lip combo and eye color as well. Overall, I think this color is amazing!

Stila Cosmetics – Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in Intese Black Eyeliner: I’ve heard great things about this eyeliner and that it gives great precision. I also love that this eyeliner in waterproof! And since I get oily eyelids I believe that this product will stay on.

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz in Dark Brown: I almost squealed when I saw this product. I love eyebrow products because I love eyebrows! I usually use powders for my eyebrows, but I think this product can give a softer look to the brows with the pencil and the spooly. I’ve heard so much about this and I’m a little too excited to use it!

NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm: I am now a proud owner of a legendary product… I couldn’t be more excited. I now own ORGASM!! Yes, the name is a bit inappropriate, but the color is amazing! I think this blush gives you a great natural flush with a tad bit of sparkle. The packaging is so amazing and smooth and the whole product it self just looks amazing… I kind of don’t even want to use it! But, of course I will.
