After browsing the Beauty Bay website for some time, I decided to make a wishlist to put together all the beauty bits I've been looking at buying. Whilst I've only just returned from America and picked up a lot of things, I think a little haul is due in summer. I tend to stick to picking up the same things - eyeshadows and concealers, but there are a few items in here that are a bit different to what I typically go for.
Morphe 2S Soul Of Summer Palette £11.95
I'm already annoyed at myself that I didn't visit the Morphe store in Burbank, California so the least I could do would be to try out one of their palettes. I did have my eye on the 35OM Matte Nature Glow palette but I feel like I'd have to try out a smaller palette of theirs before dedicating myself to a 35 colour palette. The Soul Of Summer palette contains a lot of pink and warm toned shades that I'd use more on a daily basis.
I always try to make a mental note to pick up something from Gerard Cosmetics but since I've not shopped on Beauty Bay before it's probably the reason why they keep slipping through the net. I do love the look of their lipsticks but the Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are what I have my eye on, especially the shade Aphrodite which is the most beautiful nude shade, inspired by the Greek goddess herself.
Violet Voss Glitter £7.25
I've not seen this brand before but from what I've seen, the make some of the most pretty cosmetic glitters I have seen so far. They don't stop at one shade either, combining multiple colours for a unique look. I think the glitter would look amazing for special events and could really finish off a look.
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pan £4.95
When I was in Los Angeles I picked up a blank Z Palette and ever since it's been sat empty. I already have a separate Mac palettethat has a about 8 pans filled but I don't want to mix up brands. I decided when I was in Sephora that I'd have a large Z palette dedicated to Makeup Geek and potentially Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadows so it's about time that I begin to build it up. As the MUG pans are half the price of Mac shadows I plan to have a palette that varies in colour so I can get the most use out of them.
Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette £18.00
This palette contains warm tones with both matte and shimmer shades which seems to very popular in the blogging community at the moment. I can't vouch for Zoeva as I haven't tried their products yet which is ridiculous considering every year I promise that I'll buy their Rose Golden brushes. Considering they get amazing reviews, this would be the palette I'd add to my basket when I eventually come round putting an order in.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade £15.00
I recently picked up the ABH Brow Wiz which is far better than the other similar looking brow definers out there and I think the Dipbrow Pomade is my next step in improving my brow game. I've tried a pomade from Nyx, and pomade sticks from Maybelline but I have the feeling that the Dipbrow Pomade will make my brows look incredible, especially as it's hard when you've got naturally blonde eyebrows.
Illamasqua Powder Blusher Duo £26.00
Now I've only tried a few Illamasqua products but these boast to be highly pigmented and to blend seamlessly so I may as well try them when it comes around to it. They include two shades each and the packaging includes a mirror which would be so handy to have in your makeup bag. Despite it being £26 I think you'd get your money's worth for two blushers in one compact.
LA Girl Pro.conceal HD Concealer £5.00
I've seen a million reviews of this concealer around the internet, especially as it's easily accessible as you can purchase it from Amazon. They do a ton of shades that includes darker ones to contour with and a green colour correcting concealer too. For £5 it would be worth a try, and if I didn't like it then it isn't much money wasted.
Dose Of Colors Matte Lipstick £14.50
Dose Of Colors only seems to have entered the beauty blogging world this year but their Matte Lipsticks claim to have high opacity and high pigmentation and I've seen a handful of positive reviews. I am mad for liquid lipsticks and have around 40/50 up until now but I'm always looking for the next brand to try out.
