The High-End Wish List

Now I know I'm not the only one who has a mental list of those high-end products you desperately long for. You can't help but get a pang of jealousy when your favourite beauty blogger talks about how amazing it is and you sigh because your budget just can't stretch to that Tom Ford Eyeshadow Palette at the moment. So, these are some of the products on my high-end wish list.

The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. I discovered this product recently after fellow blogger/YouTuber Victoria (InTheFrow) gushed over it in her Make-Up Collection video. This lightweight primer is perfect for normal/combination skin (ie. my skin) and it will make my skin look lovely and smooth. Dreamy. Next up on my hit-list is the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in R.S.V.P. I'm a sucker for cream eyeshadows, and the Benefit cream shadows are no different. I've already tried the colour Birthday Suit and instantly fell in love, so I knew this was a must. Then there's the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, I'm just lovin' cream-based products right now. I find that powder-based bronzers can look really harsh and are a bit hit-and-miss with my pale skin, and so after extensive research (reading reviews and so on) I've found that this product is the one for me.

The Diorskin Star Studio Foundation is the product that I'm loving the most. So many bloggers have been raving about how 'weightless' and 'natural' this foundation looks, and that it's meant to look like your skin, but better. What's better than that? Moving on to the Benefit Cha Cha Balm, I love how this lip product is more of a tinted coral rather than something really pigmented...It's perfect for those days when I don't want a bold lip day. Back to Laura Mercier again, this time I'm after the Laura Mercier Illuminating Powder in Mocha Spice. For ages I've been using the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade, and I've wanted to try something new. I love each of the colours in this quad, it's just an absolutely all-round gorgeous product.

A popular lipstick that I still haven't got round to purchasing...the MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy. I love the staying power and pigmentation of these lipsticks, and you can't go wrong with a nude shade that Kylie Jenner is a lover of, can you? The Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette in The Golden Goddess is definitely the prettiest product on my wishlist. The colours are to-die-for and the pigmentation is out of this world. All of the bloggers are going on about this product which makes me want it even more...sigh. I really need to get my hands on the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel too...simply because I need a setting product for my eyebrows and this product by Benefit is my best bet for getting fab and defined eyebrows.

The mascara I'm dreaming of is all thanks to Anna (ViviannaDoesMakeup), and its the Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara. I love how fluttery and volumneised Anna's lashes are when she uses this mascara, which is a look that my small pale lashes yearn for. Finally I want to try the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, as I've been having some insane breakouts recently and my skin needs to be tamed somehow, and this nourishing product is perfect for dry skin too!
