My Lips, Nails, Brushes and Other Wish List13:34
I have the last wish list post about products that I really want to get my hands on. Today it's all about lips, nails, makeup brushes and one other thing.
Kiko Dream Wish Nail Lacquer Set
I think the name couldn't be better. It really is a dream wish list product for any nail polish lover. Kiko has one of the best formulas and very affordable prices (especially, when they're on sale). I really like their regular Nail Lacquer line, although I wish to have a lot more of these in my collection. In this set you get seven bright shades of nail polish with one glitter top coat. I like all of the shades. It's a very classic set of colors that many would love.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Stockholm
This is on my wish list for a really long time. I was so excited when I saw that Feelunique got NYX products, but of course Stockholm is already sold out. Just my luck. I really like this peachy brown pink matte lipstick and I hope I'll get it soon, because I've heard some great things about their lip creams.
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms
It's a set of three mini sized lipsticks. In it you get Penelope Pink (peachy nude), Bitch Perfect (pink nude) and So Marilyn (classic red). I have hard time finishing full sized lipsticks, so this would be perfect. All the shades are pretty classic and would probably suit me well. Here makeup line is impeccable and lipsticks are very raved about. One more reason to try them.
Kiko Nail Lacquer - 507 Blush
This shade just appeals to me and I rarely go for lighter colors. It's like a very light white with slight peach tint to it, but then it almost looks a bit pastel neon line on the photos. I love peach shade and the fact that it's very light really makes me want it.
Kiko Nail Lacquer - 373 Burnt Sienna
It looks like a warm brown taupe base with gold shimmer. I tend to gravitate toward brown lately and gold shimmer just makes it a perfect combination. This is definitely on my list for future purchases.
Kiko Temptress Lip Set - 04 Passionately Red
Kiko has some amazing makeup sets for December in their Cosmic Starlets Edition and I want them all. In this set you get a lipstick and a complimenting color of lip liner. After seeing some swatches on the internet, I decided for a classic red shade. I think the finish is a bit shiny.
MAC Cremesheen Lipstick - Shy Girl
MAC lipsticks are always a good choice for anyone's wish list. You have a huge range of shades and finishes for all skin types. I have four of them and would love to add to my collection. Shy Girl seems like a pretty pale peach shade. I also don't have any of their cremesheen finishes and would love to try it. It looks like a good finish for dry lips.
MAC Matte Lipstick - Honeylove
This was love at first sight. I first saw this lipstick on Sara's blog. It looks like a perfect mix of peach and brown. Super pretty and definitely high on my wish list.
Kiko Twin Stars Nail Lacquer and Lipstick - 01 Lavish Beige
Another amazing set, which would be a perfect gift for anyone that loves nail polish and lipsticks. You get lipstick with matte finish and shiny gel effect nail polish. Shades are accordingly similar. I want to get the beige version. Lipstick looks like a mauve brown nude and nails look like a classic pink nude shade.
Zoeva Rose Golden Complete Eye Set
You all know that I am obsessed with highlighter, but my second obsession must be makeup brushes. I have too many of them as it is, but I always want more. Most of my brushes are actually cheaper ones. I do have one small set of Zoeva eye brushes. I'm not even sure that they still sell this set. It was called Luxury Eye Brush Set. Since I am very happy with their quality, I want more. Because with eye makeup you can't really have too many brushes, at least I like to think so. This set has 12 eye brushes that you'll ever need.
Lisa Eldridge Face Paint Book
Lisa Eldridge is my favorite makeup artist. She's one of the first makeup artists that I watched on YouTube and I really like her aesthetic view on makeup. In the time of heavy contouring, highlighting, false lashes... she is actually one of the rare makeup artists that still swears on using makeup as a tool for enhancing your natural beauty, not making it look really fake. I admire her and love her soothing voice and professionalism. It's also rare that industry's leading makeup artists share their techniques on YouTube with all of us that don't have a professional makeup background. I admire her for that. Naturally, I was overly excited, when I heard that she wrote a book. It's about the history of makeup. I don't like history at all, but I am always intrigued to find out how makeup evolved through the years and I am almost certain that it's a very easy read. This is definitely on my top of wish list.
Zoeva - 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek Brush
This is angled brush and I would like to use this as a contouring brush.
Zoeva - 126 Luxe Cheek Finish Brush
Another great brush for either applying blush or powder. I think I would use this for powdering my face.
Zoeva - 101 Luxe Face Definer Brush
This brush is a bit tapered and it reminds me a little of Real Techniques Blush Brush, but a slimmer version of it. I would probably use this for bronzer, because it looks fluffy enough and also pointed so that you can contour with it a bit.
Zoeva - 223 Petit Eye Blender Brush
I saw something similar to this in Lisa Eldridge's makeup videos and she always uses it around the lower lash line. It looks like a really precise, yet rounded brush for applying eye shadow lightly around the lower lash line. I still lack in this department, so it seems a really nice shape.
Japonesque Velvet Touch Brush Collection 4 Piece Gift Set
Another Lisa Eldridge inspired brush set. She uses a lot of Japonesque brushes and a year ago she featured this set in her holiday giveaway. I saw it in one of the online stores and though the price is actually not bad at all. It seems like the brushes must be of great quality. In the set you get powder brush, lip brush and two eye shadow brushes. It seems like a really nice basic set and for some reason I really want to try this brand.
Zoeva Rose Golden Complete Eye Set Vol. 2
And because you can never have too many eye brushes (did I already say I love brushes?), I want volume 2 as well. I am not obsessed with pink packaging, but I do like the variety of brush shapes in both these sets.
This is my last wish list. I featured some of the products that are on my mind for future purchases or just for day dreaming. I could do a lot more wish lists, but I just decided to feature products that are really stuck in my mind. I'm sure all of you also have few products that you're dreaming of. At the end of the day, it's just materialistic things and of course I don't need all of these, but I am allowed to dream a bit. Makeup just makes me a bit happier, like others get happy if they get a new game, shirt, sports gear and so on. Lists are also helpful to me, because when I go to certain stores, I at least know what I want and won't buy something on a whim. Do you make wish lists as well? What is your favorite product from my wish list?
