Pay Day Beauty Wish List

Pay Day Wish List, Beauty Wish List
Hey loves I hope you're all having a wonderful Bank Holiday Weekend.
They say it's a 'millionaires weekend' on that one day of the month everyone looks forward to most - pay day! Now I know that millionaires weekend mainly sums up those who spend all of their wages on alcohol on the Friday and Saturday and are broke by the Sunday, however mine isn't alcohol, it's new beauty goodies and I'm sure most of you are the same (I hope)! I've only done one of these posts on my blog (HERE) so I thought I'd share with you a few things I've been eyeing up of late.
Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Colour | Bruised Plum
Seeing as Autumn is fast approaching (seriously where on earth has August gone?!) I thought it would be appropriate to start looking for a more autumnal lip colour. As soon as I saw this lippy I fell in love. I love the packaging, the colour - everything! I know I'd be applying this far too often than necessary just so I could whip out and show off this little beauty. Such an alluring luxury never comes with an affordable price tag does it? Retailing at £37.00 this would be the most expensive lipstick I've splurged on, although I'm sure I would have talked myself into buying this when pay day arrives being a lipstick hoarder and all..
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
Something I've been lusting over for what feels like an extremely long time! As much as I love my L'Oreal True Match Foundation I feel like this product is the next step up. I've seen many Beauty Vloggers use this in their tutorials and the results look amazing, along with all the reviews. I'll definitely get matched up by a SA so I know I have the correct shade for my skin tone instead of looking at online swatches and attempting to do so myself - I've done this in the past and lets just say it didn't end too well.. The nearest place to me which stocks this is London so it's going to be a bit of a waiting game until I'm next down there.
Mac Mineralise Skinfinish Natural | Light
For a girl who never cared for or used a powder up until a month or two ago, I already want to purchase another one. I know - I'm a changed woman! As I like to highlight my under eye area I feel that using a light powder will make the highlight show up much more than using a translucent powder which I currently have.
Mac Eye Shadow | Cranberry
Again with the autumnal theme. If Autumn/Winter were an eye shadow this would be it, it's perfect! Such a beautiful shimmery purple with a slight hint of pink which flatters all eye colours. I also have my eyes on Woodwinked along with a few other Mac items, I feel a Mac haul on the horizon..
Anastasia Beverley Hill DipBrow Pomade | Blonde
As I've mentioned previously in one of my more recent posts, my brows and I have a very love hate relationship. Due to over plucking them when I was a teen they aren't as thick as I'd like them to be. I've tried powders and pencils but I never seem to be fully satisfied with the outcome. This seems like it could be the answer to all my troubles! Super long lasting with amazing pigment meaning you can change the shape of your brows ever so slightly whilst still looking natural. This will without a doubt be mine by the end of the month and a new HG product I'm sure!
Lorac Pro Palette
The first time I saw this palette was in a blog post review and I was in awe at the beautiful colours. Seriously I was like a child in a sweet shop, (just change it to me staring at a computer screen instead) This palette is very versatile containing every basic you could need with a mixture of matte and shimmer. This would compliment my UD Naked 2 palette beautifully!
Nars Copacabana Illuminator
I used to be a big fan of matte foundations, until I purchased L'Oreal Magic Lumi Primer. I would say that this is more of an illuminator than a make up primer adding a gorgeous dewy finish. As much as I love my Mary Lou Manizer to highlight my cheekbones I'm currently really loving the liquid consistency to mix in with my foundation for more luminosity and a healthy glow. Now that I'm converted I really want to get my mitts on this.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil | Milk
A week or so ago I searched online for 'UD Naked 2 eye make up looks' and one photo in particular looked beautiful and the eye shadows looked really pigmented. I thought to myself how come when I do my eye make up with the exact colours they never look as vibrant? Long story short, the photo I was looking at was in actual fact a YouTube tutorial and she used this beforehand. Now I never would have thought to apply this before my eye shadow as a base to get the most enhanced colour pay off. I know this is common news amongst the beauty community however I've just jumped on the band wagon!
Do you own any of these products?
