I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your week! Hopefully you all had a fun-filled and SAFE St. Patricks Day (and hopefully you aren't suffering from too much of a hangover)! I am actually feeling pretty bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning because the weather kept me home last night. But enough about that; on to the make-up!
So as I was thinking about what to post this week I started thinking about all of the awesome make-up that I have really been wanting this month and thought, "hey, I'll post a wish list!" This post is just to let you guys know what I have been hearing a lot of hype about lately and have been wanting to get my hands on and try.
Just a disclaimer for this and the next post: I am somewhat limited at the moment because I am home on spring break until next Tuesday so my make-up collection is limited at the moment so I'll try and review some things I have with me and let you know how they are working and what-not, but that is why I haven't really been able to start doing any tutorials just yet but they are coming soon!!
Anyway, on to my March 2014 Wish-list!:
Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation
Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation
This foundation looks BEAUTIFUL. I have been lusting after this luxurious formula for a few months now actually and can't wait until I have the opportunity to get my hands on it. It is a fairly expensive product at $42 (and I am a broke college student) but I am willing to pony that up for this beautiful foundation. It promises a long-wearing formula which is important to me because I don't have time to be touching up my make-up all the time between class, work, and other extra-curriculars so long-wearing formulas are at the top of my list. This foundation also has a dewy finish. If this foundation can give me a dewy finish without making me look sweaty and without wearing off it will be worth every penny. A lot of times I really look for a matte finish but sometimes I just want that ethereal look that dewy finish foundations can offer. Long story short, as soon as I can get my hands on this I will be purchasing it!
These blushes are ah-mazing. I have tested them in the store and all of the colors are so pigmented and beautiful. I can't even pinpoint a specific shade that I want because they are all amazing. There is a great variety of mattes and shimmers and an awesome range of colors from bright pinks to warm corals to mauves to subtle tans. These blushes will run you $26 at Ulta and I'm guessing would be worth every penny. As soon as I get my hands on some I will be sure you guys are the first to know!
EDIT: I picked up one of these in the shade Flawless! Review to come soon!
These glosses are wonderful. They are sheer glosses is neutral colors that give just enough color to brighten the face but not so much that they perform like a liquid lipgloss. I am in love with the colors Liar and Streak. Liar is a coordinating color to the shade of the same name in the Naked 3 palette which is a deep is nude pink. Streak is a coral color with a subtle nude quality. I love nude pink lip colors and I have a special affinity for coral lipsticks and lip glosses so that explains why I want these two colors so badly. They ring it at $20 a piece. I'll be sure to let you guys know when I finally get my hands on some!
EDIT: I also picked up a couple of these in the shades Streak and Lovechild and will be reviewing them and possibly picking up a couple more to do some swatches!
Now I'm sure you have all heard the hype about these blushes and I have fallen victim to said hype and want to try these so bad! They are supposed to leave the skin with a beautiful sheen that is subtle yet noticeable when the light hits. I have heard nothing but good things about these from many bloggers and YouTubers (I first heard about these from the lovely Jaclyn Hill) and although they carry a pretty hefty price tag coming in at $35 a piece they seem to be worth the money! These look gorgeous and I want them all! (But I'll settle for one or two for now)
Well that is my wish-list for this month! I will let you guys know as I start collecting these and add them to my collection of make-up. I'm sure they will be wonderful additions and I can't wait for them to be mine! What is on your wish-list this month? Let me know in the comments!
Hope you guys have a lovely week!
