Makeup Wishlist #1

Hello Everyone!

I'd just like to first of all apologize for my absence, as you may have noticed I haven't posted anything for about 3 days now. My broadband connection went down and has been an absolute nightmare trying to fix. Thankfully, my broadband is now sorted and I can now resume with my daily blog posts. So to start back off with my regular posts, I thought I'd create a make-up wishlist, showing you make-up pieces that I am currently wanting to try. Most of these items are drugstore and are therefore extremely affordable. I personally love drugstore products as they can be just as good, if not better than high end products and I love the fact that because they're cheaper you can get more for your money.
1. theBalm FratBoy Blush - £16
I first saw this blush on EssieButtons June Beauty favourites video and I have fallen in love with it. It's a beautiful pinky, peach colour which is normally the type of colour blush I go for. I love the Benefit-esque packaging and would love to add this to my make-up collection!

2.Rimmel London Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch - £4.99
I love Rimmel London. Their products rarely ever disappoint me and this is just something that really intrigues me. I'm quite into a glowy, dewey make-up look right now so this could be something that I would quite like!
This is a new product from Rimmel so there's not a lot I can say about it for now. This is basically a soft creamy eyeshadow pencil, which should be really easy to blend and hopefully will be super pigmented which it does look from the images. This comes in 5 different shades and there's a few that I'd like to try but I feel like a nude, beige colour would be the best colour to start off with first.

4. theBalm Nude' Tude Eyeshadow Palette - £26
Again this was also featured in EssieButtons June Beauty Favourites and since then I have been lusting after this product. The packaging is beautiful, I love the pin-up girl theme. The eyeshadow names themselves are really amusing and the colours just look fabulous. There's a great range of matt shades and really shimmery ones so you can create a variety of looks with this palette. I personally love the shade "Sexy", it's a beautiful reddish brown shade which I think would compliment hazel eyes wonderfully!

5. Bourjois Lipstick Colour Boost Crayon in Orange Punch - Price Unknown
This is a new product by Bourjois and this is their take on the recent chubby stick craze. I've heard good things about this Lip Crayon, in particular their Peach on the Beach shade. I however, really want to try the Orange Punch colour as I'm really into glossy peachy lip colours right now.

6. Sleek Pout Paint in Lava - £4.99

The Sleek Pout Paints have been out for a little while now and despite really wanting one, I still haven't picked one up yet. I'm desperate to try one of these out, especially the shade Lava as this is a stunning orangey, red colour. These pout paints are extremely pigmented and are definitely good value for money.

7. Bourjois Bronzing Primer - Price Unknown
This is another new product from Bourjois which has been very well hyped! I've heard loads of people say good things about this product so I'm desperate to get my hands on it and see if they hype is true!

8. MUA Sheer Lipgloss in Happy Days - £1
I'm not usually a lipgloss type of person but the colour of this is so lovely that I can't resist it. The lip-glosses I have are all very nude shades so it'd be nice to add this peachy pink shade to my collection and have something a bit different!

That's all for my make-up wishlist. I hope you enjoyed!
If you've tried any of these products out let me know your opinions, I'd love to hear.

Hope you're all well.

    1. The palette is a big splurge but it's too nice not to have. I might have to cave in and get it! Ooh I think I'll pick one of the colour boost lip crayons up then! xx
