Current Wish List

I have a pretty long wish list right now.  Of all expensive stuff.  Yeesh.

First up is my Charlotte Tilbury lemmings:

Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight -- This bronzer/contour and highlighter duo seems to be universally considered the best product in her line.  It looks like the bronzer/contour shade would be an excellent color for my skin tone, and the highlighter looks somewhat subtle, which would be good for me because I tend to go overboard with my highlighters.

K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Bitch Perfect -- I really like peachy nudes, and from swatches I've seen, it looks like this is a beautiful peachy nude.  Plus the tube looks so elegant

Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blush in Love is the Drug -- Ah yes, the nipple blush (you're never going to unsee that).  I've read that these are very finely milled, almost to the point of feeling creamy.  Love is the Drug is a cool-toned pink with gold shimmer that I'm really drawn to. 

Next up, some lipstick and glosses:

NARS Lip Gloss in Baby Doll -- Described as a shimmery candy pink, this gloss looks pretty decently pigmented from the few swatches I've seen.  I like the NARS lip gloss formulation (I have Supervixen from the Sephora "Bronze Bares All" set).

MAC Cremesheen Pearl Lipstick in Little Buddha -- I like the Cremesheen formula.  And I like shimmery lipsticks.  Little Buddha is described as a bright peachy pink.  I looks like a happy sort of color.

MAC Cremesheen Glass in Floating Lotus -- Another shimmery lip gloss.  This one is a "frosted soft rose".  Plus, I like the name.

Some eyeshadows:

Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Iggy -- "Iridescent mermaid green"  Just look at it.  I mean, c'mon.

Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Danzig -- I love purple eyeshadows.  They are probably my favorite color.  And, again, the name.  Pretty killer, right?

And last, some brushes:

Wayne Goss Brush 02 -- My other Wayne Goss brushes are stellar.  This is made from squirrel fur (the brush line claims to be cruelty-free, so I assume the fur is harvested "nicely"), and so it's got to be supremely soft, which is good for my skin (some brushes irritate my face and feel "poke-y").  The shape looks versatile, and would be good for highlighter, blush, and contouring.

Wayne Goss Brush 03 -- Larger than the 04 brush that I bought recently, this looks like it would be really great for blending out crease colors to get a diffused look.  I love the four eye brushes of his that I have, but they're all fairly small, so a larger one would be great to add to my collection.

This is one heck of a wish list.  What's on your wish list?  Or shopping list?  Does your wish list ever turn into a shopping list?


  1. I seriously want ALL the Charlotte Tilbury things. ALL OF THEM. I'm trying to wait for the holiday collection to pick something up... but damnit, I want it now!

  2. The CT blushes and lipsticks are so worth it! I tried Bitch Perfect in a makeover and it was a totally flattering, wearable nude :)

  3. I am about 99% percent sure I'm going to buy them. Maybe more than 99%. :)

  4. Yeah, when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury I'm feeling like I need to buy all the pretties. There is no way I can wait for the holiday collection. Did you see the sneak peek of the advent calendar?

  5. I did not! Where did you see that? I saw some of the packaging but nothing about the insides nor this advent calendar! AH!

  6. I either saw it on instagram or the Sephora Beauty Talk board. It was a photo of Charlotte holding a box that was clearly an advent calendar. I think there is a mini Magic Cream in one of the days, but the rest are a mystery!

  7. Fantastic wishlist! Right now the NARS Audacious lipsticks are on mine (have yet to try the formula) and I'm still thinking about the KVD Metal Crush eyeshadows. :-)
