Beauty Wishlist

Current Beauty Wishlist

I really enjoy reading posts about the items beauty bloggers are lusting after so I thought you might like to know what is on my beauty wishlist currently. It is likely that not all of these products will make their way into my collection, but a girl can dream. The first product I am coveting is the Tom Ford Lip Gloss in Sahara Pink. I'm not going to lie, the thing that attracted me the most to TF makeup was the luxurious packaging. It is to die for! The shade of this lip gloss is also stunning, but the hefty price tag will probably stop me from buying it any time soon. Another fancy schmancy item that I've been wanting is the Diptyque Figuier Candle. The Diptyque website describes the scent as a mixture of 'the warmth of fig wood, the freshness of its leaves and the milky sap'. Sounds divine and perfect for autumn. Moving on to makeup, I still haven't tried anything from the Marc Jacobs Beauty line and it looks GORG. A nail polish that caught my eye was the Marc Jacobs Nail Polish in Delphine. It is a beautiful purple gray that is right up my alley. I already own one Tarte blush and I've been wanting to add another to my collection for quite some time now. These blushes are really pigmented the color selection is fantastic. This time I was pulled in by the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Flush, a pink berry shade. I'm in the market for a new highlighter and the RMS Beauty Livin Luminizer looks like a great choice. I also heard that the always radiant Miranda Kerr loves this product and if it is good enough for her, it is good enough for me. I'm going to wrap this post up with a french pharmacy skincare item that looks refreshing.So cheesy I know. I'm talking of course about the Avene Thermal Spring Water. I've read that this is perfect product to spray on your face throughout the day when you just need a little pick me up. Also, if you'd like some more French pharmacy skincare recommendations, I will be putting up a post about my favorites soon.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Are there any beauty products you'd love to have in your collection?

Review: Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil



This is the first face oil I have ever tried so I can't say that is better than anything else, but I do believe that it has done great things for my skin. Before I purchased this product, my skin looked extremely dull and kind of had a grey tone. Not a great look unless you're going for the zombie thing. Part of the reason my skin looked this way is because I wasn't drinking enough water. Once I upped my water intake and added this face oil to the skincare stash, things started looking a lot brighter. I usually apply this face oil after I have finished cleansing and moisturizing my skin and I leave it on overnight. When I wake up in the morning, my skin looks supple and radiant.

Current Favorite: Lip Crayons


Lately, any time I have sported a lip color, it has been one of the lip crayons pictured above. Lip crayons have quickly earned a permanent spot in my makeup stash for many reasons. First, the application process is a total breeze. The crayon- like nib allows you to precisely outline your lips and and fill them in. You can entirely skip the tedious lip liner step. Second, they stay on your lips like no other! I find this especially convenient when working with bright colors as you don't end up having to touch up your lip color every few hours. Even after eating a meal, your lips are beautifully stained. Now let's talk about some of my most loved lip crayons...

1) Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey- This is definitely my most used lip crayon. It is a beautiful mauve pink that I throw on with any makeup look. My lips are naturally quite pigmented so for me this is a pretty wearable color. I think this is a shade that would look different on various skin tones, but equally beautiful.

2) Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous- Rendezvous is the bright orange crayon in the picture and is one of my favorite colors in the warmer months. Don't worry, it doesn't make you look like you've been eating too many orange popsicles! On the lips, it looks like a peachy coral and is surprisingly wearable. My favorite way to wear it is with minimal eye makeup and a bright coral cheek. Definitely a winner for this time of year!

3) Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush- Crush is undoubtedly the boldest shade in my lip crayon collection. It is a stunning deep raspberry shade that I love wearing with thick black eyeliner and layers of mascara. I also love wearing it as a soft berry stain during the daytime.

4) Clinique Chubby Sticky in Roomiest Rose- Roomiest rose is a beautiful deep pink that is the perfect everyday shade with a little something extra. If you're someone who likes to have a decent amount of color on their lips, but doesn't want to go all out, then this is the color for you. I also find the formula of this crayon to be really moisturizing and comfortable so you don't even really feel like you have something on your lips.

Have you tried any Lip Crayons? If so, what are your favorites?

Summer Blushes



Summer is my favorite time of year for blush as I get to bring out my most loved pink and coral blushes. Let's get into my top three picks for this summer!

1) Revlon Powder Blush in Racy Rose- I picked this blush up back in the spring and have really made a dent in it since then. I think it is the perfect mid-tone pink that can be worn easily with any makeup look. It gives a fresh glow to the face without looking to too obvious or clownish. The blush is a little on the sheer side, but can easily be built up. I don't find that the color lasts on my cheeks for more than a few hours, but I find that to be the case with most blushes.

2) Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Coral- Cream blushes are perfect for the summer thanks to their light and comfortable formula. The texture of this blush is one of the first things that attracted me to it. It is creamy and easy to blend without looking oily on the skin. The lasting power is quite impressive for a cream blush as it stays on the cheeks for a good couple of hours. Also, the rich coral shade screams summer!

3) Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Natural Beauty - Now this beauty has quickly become one of my all time favorites. I had been lusting after this blush for months before I finally bit the bullet and picked it up. The blush applies wonderfully and gives a beautiful flush to the cheeks. I also think this color would flatter a multitude of skin tones. If I had to recommend on blush for the summer, it would be this one!
