Beauty Wishlist (High End)

Wednesday, 5 October 2016

It has occurred to me, after almost a year and a half of blogging that all I ever seem to talk about is the makeup that I have, and the makeup that I want to get. Call me a bit obsessed (okay, I know that I definitely am), but there's nothing that I love more than scouring through the shelves of makeup when I go shopping, and of course, talking about my recent purchases and future wants, to anyone who will listen...

You all most probably know that now though (a read of a couple of my previous beauty themed posts,  is enough to give anyone an insight into how passionate I feel), and because you are all pretty much used to my beauty rantings and ravings, I thought what better route to go down this week, than a Beauty Wishlist Post (or a High End Beauty Wishlist, to give it it's full title), where I can share all the current items that I am lusting after, and why I want to add them to my collection so badly!


I will start with a couple of biggies, those items being by none other than Kat Von D, and since said makeup brand emerged on the online depths of Debenhams recently, I have definitely been eyeing up a fair few items. Firstly, there's the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette that I have developed a distinct yearning to own over the past few weeks after seeing and reading several reviews and posts about. If I do want to make this item my own though, I had better start saving my pennies as for £36 it definitely isn't on the cheap side (but this is a high end wishlist, so how much are you seriously expecting the items to cost Olivia?) - yet with a distinctly good selection of shades inside it, and also a massive following of hype and rave reviews, I really don't think I would mind spending so much money on it. 

Another item that I feel rather tempted by is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, that although has attracted a sort of mix of reviews, is still pretty much a must-have for an eyeliner lover like myself. I adore pen style liners, and for that reason desperately want to give this product a go too - the pen nib itself looks incredibly sleek in photos and I can just imagine how lovely it would be to actually apply to the eyes... even if the reviews I have previously read do give off mixed feelings about it. 

Onto another brand for a while now though, and another item that I have recently added to my wishlist...that item being the Urban Decay Naked Concealer. I have previously expressed my love of Urban Decay items, and therefore really want to expand my collection in the near future. I'm forever wanting to try out different concealers (mostly just to compare them to the Nars Creamy Concealer, which is simply incredible), as they are just one of those items that I definitely cannot live without, and for that reason upon seeing the Naked Concealer recently, I just knew I had to add it to my collection in the near future. 


Sticking with Urban Decay though, and recently I wrote a post on my two new purchases from the aforementioned brand (you can find said post HERE). Within those purchases was a gorgeous lipstick from the Vice collection - this lipstick (which I have been wearing as often as possible since I received my delivery) was from the Metallised Collection (its actually called Amulet), and is the most gorgeous shimmery brown! Upon loving this very lipstick, I decided that I really should invest in another similar one in the near future, as the metallised finish of lipstick really does give the lips a healthy shine and in fact stays in place for the majority of the day...unfortunately though, I'm not really sure which shade of  Urban Decay Metallised Lipstick I should get, as there are just so many to choose from (although Cruel, which is a shiny red sort of shade, does look particularly lovely).

Finally on this wishlist of mine, are a couple of items from Too Faced, which is another brand that I really want to try and purchase more products from in the future (at the moment I sadly only own one of their products; a Melted Lipstick in the shade Melted Nude). A couple of items that particularly stand out from said brand being the Too Faced Sweet Heart Blusher, which I pretty much simply want due to how gorgeous it looks, and how I could undoubtably take tons of photos of it (although I'm sure it's an amazing quality blusher too), and also the Too Faced Hangover Primer. The primer is however, probably the item a fair bit higher up my wishlist, as I do desperately need to invest in a new primer at the moment, and after testing this particular one in Debenhams a few weeks ago became rather set on getting it at some point!

As you can probably tell, for me, the hobby of buying and building a fantastic collection of makeup never really does stop, and I am forever seeing new items and stumbling upon new brands that I want to try. It would be really great to try and expand the number of High End items that I own in the future though...although what with being a student it is quite difficult to get my hands on the money needed to buy said products (however, Christmas and my Birthday are on the horizon, so hopefully I may receive some of the above items then...hint, hint).

Thank you all for reading anyway, and don't forget to let me know which items are currently on your Beauty Wishlist in the comments below!

  1. Great picks! The KVD Contour palette is such a good one. That stuff is very pigmented and smooth. You won't be left disappointed! I also have the Hangover primer on my wishlist :)

  3. Great list! The primer is good, but since I am oily skinned it made my skin really over hydrated. But it smells amazing

  5. I love the look of the Kat Von d palette, it looks a lot more wearable than the Anastasia Beverly Hills one and I think I'd like it a lot more!
