Beauty wish list

Its Tuesday and at the time I am writing this I should be in my bed, but I'm not because i was looking  at Youtube videos on make-up which is what inspired this post. I have a beauty wish list a mile long ... but I will not allow myself to buy any of it right now ...

Let me explain. In the latter part of 2014 my wallet/bank account took some major hits. For example, I traveled to the US and Australia, I bought a Sony DSC camera, 18" rims for my car,  a Macbook Pro (love it), an iPhone 6, a Filofax ... and I'm not even counting the oodles of money I spent while shopping on my trips... I basically changed my entire wardrobe. I say all this to say ... I ain't spending no money no time soon ... grammatically incorrect statement for emphasis only of course. I like my money in the bank, even though the evidence says otherwise, and so the makeup I want will just have to go on a wish list for the time being. Enter this post ... my beauty wish list because a wish is all it will be for a while....




Lipsticks:
Left to right: MAC Creme d'nude and MAC Myth

I've been eyeing these two nude colours for a while now and one day they shall be mine. I have nude lipsticks but until I can find a lip colour that stays on my lip like MAC does, these will be on my wish list.

Bronzer:
Mac Bronzing Powder

My MAC bronzer is finished and while I can and so use the drugstore bronzer that I do have, I'd like to replace it! 

Eye shadow Palletes:
Left to Right: Lorac Pro and Lorac Pro 2

Yes I know I'm super late to this party, but I still own neither and I still want both. If I had to choose though, it would be the Lorac Pro. The natural tones in that palette just appeal to me more, but they both are really nice!

Other: 
NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray

I actually don't have a setting spray at the moment and I've heard that this one is good. Too bad it has to wait!

Also on my list are some make-up brushes - In particular foundation brushes and powder brushes. Also earlier tonight Shelby told me about an Almay eyebrow pencil and I want it ... like yesterday. sighs.

Ok so maybe this list isn't a mile long. But since I'm on a ban from myself, it is to me. Maybe I will gift myself some of them each month, who knows, but for right now this is what I want but will not allow myself to have?

Anyone else have themselves on a spending ban??


Have a great Tuesday guys!!

  8. Since I literally have no closet space I am on a spending band as well girl......but not when it comes to makeup.....I mean it doesn't take up that much room right? ;-)

  9. I have the Nyx setting spray and it's awesome! Also probably the cheapest on your list ;-)

  10. Yes, I am on a spending ban! The problem is that one of my favorite things to do on the weekend is grab a coffee and wander around stores "window shopping" which can quickly turn into actual shopping if I'm not careful! Why do I do this to myself?? ;)

  11. I love me some make-up!!! Like seriously, I want to buy all of that stuff now. Except the MAC myth lipstick because I have that one. I love watching Nicole Guerriro on Youtube. She is great!

  12. I'm on a light spending ban. HaHaHa I purchased a lot of makeup last year, so I'm a lot pickier this year. Great products on your list. You spent your money wisely though! Those were some great purchases!

  13. I hear you! 2014 was expensive for me too and I need to be on a spending ban for like…all of 2015 haha. I'm starting with January so we'll see how long it lasts ;) There was a while where I wanted/needed like every eye shadow palette and I heard so many good things about those Lorac ones! I never got one because I finally realized I wear like 2 shades of eyeshadow…they still tempt me though!

  14. So I see you are a MAC girl! Haha! I have te MAC setting spray but I barely use it so it has lasted me forever, once it is gone I want to try the NYX brand. Waiting is hard!

  15. The Lorac Pro (like the little trio) won't break the bank and you totally need to try the Almay pencil still. Glad I am convincing you ;)

  16. Since I'm on just a spending freeze, not a total ban, I can buy makeup if I run out of something. No sign of that yet haha. The Lorac palettes are so pretty!

  17. Ohh I have so many things on my beauty wish list! Tarte blush, Mac lipstick, Nars eye shadow primer, the list goes on!!

  22. I have Naked and Naked 3 palettes, but I haven't tried Lorac Pro yet. They are on my wishlist, too.

  23. Great wish list! I have so many on mine as well. Pretty anything Urban Decay is on it. The palettes much me swoon. While we were on our last cruise my body wash exploded everywhere and I thought I was going to lose my Naked palette because of it. Getting soap out of that velevty stuff is tough business. Luckily, none of the shadows were harmed and it was not lost. I am also lusting after the Laura Mercier Beauty Portfolio. sigh. Gifting to yourself sounds like a great idea!

  24. MAC lipsticks are my very favorite, so of course I'm loving those two nudes! Great picks!

  25. MAC is the only line that carries makeup in my shade in Australia. So they are officially my favourite make up too. I'm too boring to create a wish list but yours is so awesome I might make it mine lol.

  28. Nice stuff!

    I'm trying to watch what I spend. I tend to go nuts at Target.

  29. I do love me some makeup! Now that I'm a Younique presenter though, I find myself spending less and less on so many makeup and beauty items because the Younique line pretty much covers it all.
