Since I’ve put myself on a strict spending budget, I thought it would be a fun idea to make a beauty wishlist I can slowly chip away at whenever I’m ready to give myself a “splurge allowance” (which probably won’t be for awhile if we’re being honest…) Regardless, these are all things that I’ve wanted to try based on ads I’ve seen or raving reviews by beauty influencers.
- Benefit Gimme Brow ($24)
I’m not ashamed to say that my brows could use a little help once in awhile. They’re a little difficult to work with because they’re feisty little devils, so anything that makes my life easier is a godsend! I’ve heard lots of good things about Benefit’s brow products, though I’ve never given them a try for myself. They are a little on the pricey side, and I personally like to be sure the product is good before I splurge! The majority of reviews are positive, so I don’t think it could hurt to try it out sometime.
- Tarte Shape Tape Concealer ($25)
I’ll start off by saying that this product has stellar reviews on every site I’ve seen! Concealer is one of those things I won’t leave the house without wearing, so it’s a pretty important part of my beauty routine. My only worry is that it will be too full coverage for me to wear on minimal makeup days, but I’ve definitely been wanting to try it!
- NARS Orgasm Blush ($30)
There was a sample of this blush in one of my magazines, and I immediately fell in love once I tried it! It is the prettiest blush I’ve ever worn, and I’m actually surprised that I haven’t gotten around to buying the full size yet. The color itself is very flattering, and it has just the right amount of shimmer. I can’t rave about it enough!
- Too Faced Unicorn Tears Lipstick ($22)
This is one I’m kind of throwing on here just for fun since there’s a unicorn craze going around. While it reminds me of costume makeup a bit, I still think it’s a very unique and interesting color. I could see it looking really cool layered on top of a different lipstick, but I don’t see it as an ‘everyday’ color. Still gorgeous, though!
- Benefit Hoola Lite Bronzer ($29)
My skin is naturally very pale, and as a result bronzer can look kind of strange against my white skin. I’ve been eyeing this bronzer ever since they announced it because it looks like a perfect alternative to the mass of bronzers that are already out there. I’m really hoping I can give it a try at some point!
And that concludes my wishlist at this moment in time. I’m sure it will grow longer as I think of new things, but for my wallet’s sake, I think this is a good enough start.
