Payday Wishlist June 2014

This month's payday wish list is all about the makeup. Apart from my splurge on a Chanel mascara a few weeks ago, I haven't really mixed anything up in my make up bag for a long time. A very long time. And with a couple of weddings coming up this year AND a holiday - I know, push the boat out - I want to make sure I'll be looking back at photos with a smile, and not a grimace of utter disgust.




1. Obviously we all know of the Chanel Vitalumière Aqua foundation as it made its way round the beauty blogging world countless times. So when I went to pick up my mascara, I got matched and took home a sample of the shade 20 Beige. I haven't completely used up my little sample bottle but I have loved using this, not only does it smell luxurious but it glides on the skin and I have to say, it's a pretty good match. I love the fact it is so light but still gives good coverage and stays on for a good amount of time. I'll be purchasing this as my summer base and I couldn't be happier.  

2. I know the NARS Laguna bronzer made it on to my wish list a few months ago but I still haven't picked it up and as we draw closer to the summer months (looking outside today, it feels like we're already here) I need a good new bronzer, and this will do the trick. 

3. If you read this post, you'll know I've started to get interested in blushers. I'm a bit awful and don't really trust a lot of the pharmacy brands and would much prefer to splash out on something I know works and will last a long time. Cue the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion. I know it's expensive, I'm still weighing up my options but it looks so gorgeous and has had rave reviews. At long last I'm ready to delve into the world of blush. 

4. Another potentially expensive but worthwhile buy, I think the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light could be the perfect product for summer, a nice setting powder over a tinted moisturiser or a beautiful highlight, this product looks gorgeous and I'm putting it on my birthday list. 

5. I love all things CK, I love the clothes, I love the underwear, I love the fragrance and their candles. When I found out a few weeks ago (late to the party I know) that CK One I became obsessed and researched a lot. I need to find a stall so I can see what the deal is with their foundation but I'd be more than happy to sample the range first via their lipsticks (I've got a problem, I know), especially in  the CK One Shine Lipstick in 700 Bliss - what a gorgeous colour. 

6. I have had the Urban Decay Naked Palette on my wish list for a long time. However, I never wear eye makeup so I've never really felt comfortable enough to spend the money on something I might not use at all. I have started using the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo eye shadows occasionally and have been really enjoying so I'd definitely like to branch out in time for the weddings I'm attending this year. 

7. This one is fairly simple, I've run out of concealer, I've wanted this one for a long time but the last time I bought a Mac concealer I was pushed into buying the Mineralize one, which is good don't get me wrong, but my lust for the Mac Studio Finish Concealer never died, and now I'm here... funny that. 

8. I'm still on a quest to find a great but easy to apply gel liner, I actually chucked out my L'Oréal Blackbuster liner because it was/still is shocking. My sister used to rave about the Urban Decay Ink for Eyes that came in a box with the brush, which they've now changed to a pot (so inconvenient, why did you do that Urban Decay?), so I thought I'd put the Urban Decay All Nighter Eyeliner on my list and give it a go. 

Wow, I was clearly in a really chatty mood. Well done if you made it this far :)
