Beauty & Makeup Shopping Wish List
Happy Wednesday! I made a mistake and entered a beauty haven last week. So I was out shopping for a skirt to complete an outfit and had the intention of only getting that. I promised myself to be good and only window shop and not actual shop. Well I didn’t succeed and I didn’t buy the skirt I went there for and ended up finding something else. I found something I wanted (and didn’t need) and contemplated getting the item and tried to decide if I should buy it or not by walking around the department store with my cousin. That led me over to the SM Beauty Section which is a pretty big beauty department inside The SM Store (if your not in the Philippines it is a giant department store) that holds a lot of beauty and makeup brands. My favorites are the ones in SM Mall of Asia and SM Makati which are huge as they are in the city. The one I went to has a fairly good section and I can spend hours in there. So while I was making my mind up for getting that item I stumbled to the beauty section on purpose to look around. It’s been a while since I bought makeup as I have been focused on clothes and accessories more. I saw so much good stuff and made a mental wish list of all the stuff I’d love to go back for. Also if actual in real life shopping didn’t satisfy me I went home and browsed online for brands that aren’t available locally and to see what’s new. By the way I did end up buying a new bag which I am in love with and have a serious bag crush on. I avoided buying anything else that was unwanted but after that browse around the store I decided I needed that bag which you will see in a blog post soon. That was pretty much the long story of what inspired this post on the beauty and makeup items I saw in store and online. So here is what’s on my beauty shopping wish list for the month!
Sleek Highlighter Palette in Cleopatra Kiss
The first item is another Sleek Palette. I am absolutely obsessed with my Solstice palette and have been reaching for it non-stop. When I stopped by the Sleek counter to check out if they have anything new and I spotted this and if I liked the other I think I need this one too. The colors look amazing and if it is as pigmented as the other than I will get on with it just as well. Let’s hoping to buying and trying this one.
Zoeva Rose Gold Eye Brush Set
I’ve been needing a new eye brush set and I stumbled across this one. I’m super intrigued by the brand Zoeva and hear so many good things about their brushes so I think I might treat myself to this one. I did find some dupes of this as well so I’m still deciding whether to get the real deal or the dupes. I’ve been all about the dupes lately especially with fashion like my latest blog post talking about dupes there. I just know I want a good eye brush set to use with all my eyeshadow palettes I’ve collected over the months.
Catrice Highlighting Powder in Champagne
Another highlighter but I couldn’t help myself. I passed the Catrice counter and the saleslady said this one of their best sellers. I usually go for a brand’s best seller when I haven’t tried anything from there before and take recommendations. It looks so good and everything at the stand look so cool so I’m excited to try this and maybe some more from the brand to try myself. It looks like a gorgeous color too.
Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base
I actually don’t own an eyeshadow base and when I was doing my makeup and my cousin’s makeup I realized I don’t own a few things and need it in my makeup collection. I actually heard such good things about this and never tried from their brand before. It is so affordable and I was in awe at the Essence counter. I love the packaging of the stuff and I think I have to go back and try this and more from them.
LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer
The next counter I hit and look interesting was from LA Girl but I swear it was LA Color so I might have to back and confirm but maybe it is just called something different here. I saw so much hype about this and the brand so of course since I saw it in person I decided to go over and have a browse. I’ve been meaning to try their concealers. I was thinking getting one for my under eye circles and then a darker one to use as a liquid contour like I see others use. I don’t own a liquid or a cream contour shade so this looks quite good.
LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation
While at the counter I was curious about the foundation just because I was fascinated by the packaging. I do hear nice things that it is pretty good so while I was there I had a browse. I didn’t get color matched yet but when I do go back and need a new foundation than I’m totally go to be getting this. I do love experimenting and trying new foundations and this will be on my list to try.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Medium
I was so excited to learn this finally launched here! I’ve seen countless reviews and beauty bloggers and vloggers rave about this concealer. Whenever something is so hyped up I’m more inclined to trying so of course I need to try it myself. I’m not sure whether to get medium or honey but I’ll have to see it in person. I’m really excited to pick this up and see how good it really is so this is going straight into my basket come pay day. I’ll let you know my thoughts when I do!
Origins Clear Improvements Charcoal Mask
This brand has really intrigued me and I am dying to head to the city where I saw there store is located. I was browsing some masks online and this came up. I already have a few things on my list to buy whenever I head to their store but I had to add this in as well. I never tried a charcoal mask but it does look interesting. The price is a bit up there but with all the hype around it and the rave reviews I’m hoping it is as good and I’m hoping to revamp my skincare routine with some new products.
NYX Micro Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette
I stopped by the NYX stand and always have to go to their counter whenever I see one. I’m so glad it is more assesible to me now as they have such good things. I actually have a longer list to try from them but I just decided to add one thing for now. I know once I hit it up I am going home with a lot more products than I intend to go there for. I heard this was a similar one to the Benefit one so I think I’m going to try it out. I have been using a powder but think I want to go back to pencil for my brows as it is easier and the tip on this looks good. I’m hoping to go to their one store they have in SM Megamall one day to go shopping there.
Too Faced 3 in 1 Hangover RX Setting Spray
Last thing on my beauty shopping list is the new setting spray from Too Faced. I love the brand and been so impressed with everything I’ve tried. I always have my own on everything they come out with. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive so I can hoard all the makeup. I was wanting their primer and still might get that too but this 3 in 1 setting spray looks like something I could use. I read the reviews and it does look good and after trying a setting spray I live by them now and want to try more. So I think a few Too Faced products including this one is going in to my basket soon. They are just so many good things I want to try from them at the moment and looking forward to the holiday collections as well.
That is the makeup and beauty bits that I’m lusting after. It is definitely dangerous browsing the beauty section at the department store. I mean in general it is dangerous for my wallet whenever I go out. I’m so happy to be finding new brands that are launching here and I get to try them instead of just lusting about wanting them online. There are so many new brands and I can’t wait to try their offerings. I tried to make this beauty wish list from brands I hadn’t tried and also with items I don’t already own. By the way I did vlog a bit of me being so indecisive about buying the bag that is why I ended up in the beauty section which will be in a vlog on my channel soon. It was such a fun day out with my cousin who is such an enabler to get stuff and I do the same with her. I can’t wait to go back and if you’d like me to film a come makeup shopping with me than I think I will as I’d love that. So I’m going to go and stop myself from online window shopping now. I hope I influenced you to pick any of these up or get something off your beauty wish list. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products I featured and if you liked or recommend them I’d love to know your opinion before I dive in. I hope you liked this style of beauty wish list as I loved putting it together. Have a lovely week!
