I love summer, but as far as colors go, I am more of an autumnal being by heart. Today, I wanted to share my wishlist for upcoming months, so we can review my successes and fails in the shopping department around Christmas time.
I would love for any of you to share your wish lists with me as well – I can never have enough inspiration when it comes to shopping. Also, if you know of any good dupes for the listed products, they would also be more than welcome (and my wallet will probably be eternally grateful to you as well).
Because you know I’m all about that BASE, that base, … I love the look of perfect skin and never get tired of buying new and new products in the search for that perfect combination. This autumn, my eyes are set on Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. Apparently, it’s a full coverage foundation but doesn’t produce the appearance of a mask on the face. Same goes for Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – it promises to really cover all the imperfections and dark circles, but doesn’t look too heavy on the face.
Stick contour is something I’ve wanted to try since forever, but I really might take the plunge this fall. I’ve got my eyes set on the Smashbox Step-by-step Contour Trio. I’ve chosen this brand because the colors are apparently quite easy to blend out (which is my biggest concern) and also have good staying power.
Last but not least – how could anyone not want at least one of these Real Techniques brushes from Bold Metals Collection? I love my RT brushes as is for their overall quality, but these are so gorgeous and luxurious that I absolutely need at least one in my life.
Autumn collections bring some pretty strong and powerful lip colors, which I need to learn to love and appreciate on my lips as well, not only on other people. I’m eyeing the Catrice Shine Appeal in Marry Berry. First off, I’m a big fan of this packaging, since it’s different to anything else we’ve seen from Catrice so far. But more importantly, Catrice continues to amaze me with most of their products in terms of price: quality ratio and I’m positive that this lip gloss will be no exception to this rule.
For lipsticks, I need some more MAC in my life and I really, really want this MAC Fixed on drama lipstick, a matte red with brown undertones. I don’t own anything in this color yet and somehow I feel like I’m missing out.
This NARS High Shine Lip Gloss in Pink Grapefruit is more of a phantasy, really, since I’ll probably never spend that much money on a gloss. But it is a really nice color for days when I just can’t be forced to make a real effort.
Last, we can’t finish this lip section without the EOS in Sweet Mint. This is my favorite flavor of EOS in general and since it is coming to its inevitable end, I’m probably going to repurchase it.
In the random category, I’ve been wanting another beige nail polish – I really love my OPI Don’t pretzel my buttons, but I’ve never tried Ciate polishes before and I’m curious. This one is in Cookies and Cream. To spice things up, I’m going to try to find this Berry M polish in Bright Purple – this much color I can handle even in fall months.
Last but not least, I need to tackle the eyebrows issue. I’ve been using the same NYX Cake Powder for the last year and not only am I running out, I’m quite bored with it to be honest. Since everyone and their mother raves about Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, I might as well cave in and buy myself one. Hopefully, it will be better than the contour palette.
So that’s my wish list – naturally, I’m not going to buy everything on it, but if I do, I’m certainly going to share it with you.
Until next time, stay beautiful!
