beauty wishlist

So Christmas and New Year have passed, it's my sisters 21st in a couple of weeks, and I'm left money-less and wanting more things than ever. Typical. So now I'm sat here with the face on compiling a list of my most wanted beauty products right now!

1. Benefit High Beam Highlighter
I am a complete highlighter virgin. I've never used one and since this is a product so many people rave about, I'm really wanting to try it out and see what kind of difference it makes to my face.
I looked at the different ones they had such as Sun Beam, but I think this one would be so much more suited to my skin, but like I said, I've noooo idea!

2. Nars Laguna Bronzing Powder
I don't think I need to say anything about this product. If you've not heard of it, I'll assume you've been living under a rock! Contouring my face is an everyday thing for me, but my bronzer at the moment is just too shimmery. This is perfect - apart from the price! But I've been told it lasts a verrrry long time. Worth it?

3. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense 
I'm SO desperate for this. I've seen people say that Revlon is a good dupe, but lately I've had the mentality that rather than spending a little money on a lot of products, spend a lot on a little. I definitely think spending more pays off and I've got my heart set on this. For £16, I don't think it's too expensive. The shade I'd love to try is 06 Roomiest Rose. I think it's a lovely shade, not too in your face and I think it would look quite natural. I want this so baaaaad :(

4. Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick 
I've noticed this in the Space NK sale for just £10! Unfortunately, it's out of stock in the shade that I am absolutely loving. It's called Popart Pink and is a lovely coral-pink shade. I don't have a colour like it in my make up case and I would love to pop this cute bullet in there.

5. Escentric Molecules - Molecule 01
This was at the top of my Christmas list, with many asterisks next to it and unfortunately I didn't get it. Super sad. Alas, it remains on my wishlist, the beauty secret, Molecule 01 and I'm still to try it. I would love to see whether the reactions I've read happen to me!


  1. High beam isn't as good as you'd think! I had one a couple years back, it was ok but now I use Dynamic from Lush's emotional brilliance range, I can use it anywhere on my face, even as a lipstick and in my hair as well! It's cheaper, bigger, and better in my opinion!

    1. Ooooh really?! I'll definitely have to give this a go! Thanks :) xx

  2. Elf has some great dupes for blushes/bronzers similar to NARS, and they're a fraction of the price. I've heard quite a few Youtube beauty gurus mention them too, the packaging is comparable too.

    Here's a few links, check them out!


    1. Oh thanks! I like their eyeshadows, so I'll have a look at these, thank you :-)

  3. I've heard the Mememe Beaut The Blues is a really good cheap dupe for the Benefit highlighters, even though I haven't tried it myself. I'd like to give it a go though! X

  4. That NARS is amazing and I need the lipstick in my life!



I really appreciate all comments left and take my time reading and replying to them all, thank you!
