The April Wishlist

So I did that thing again when I start writing one of these wishlist posts but succumb and buy one (or more) of the products before finishing writing it out of the sheer lack of willpower. And I have no explanation for the lack of posts in the last week – I wasn’t super busy and I was inspired but it somehow did not happen. Alas, let’s get into my ramblings:

06676_Fotor_Collage

Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Foundation ($68): The depth of the love and devotion that I’ve developed for-slash-towards the brand’s staple Luminous Silk Foundation has made me convinced that I need to try their latest glow-boosting offering. Luminous Silk is glowy for a foundation that’s medium build able coverage but this serum foundation has me seriously excited. Also, I’ve gotten slightly too dark for the Luminous Silk and figured it justified purchasing another foundation in a slightly darker shade.

Camille Rose Naturals Curlmaker ($30): I’ve been really making efforts on styling my wavy-curly hair in the last while and I’ve had fairly good results but I have deduced that I may be in need of one of these light curl-boosting stylers to help my lamer sections curl up and blend with the remainder of my hair. Now that I’ve discovered that Target carries the brand and will ship it to Canada, I’ve got my eyes glued.

Becca Backlight Targeted Colour Corrector in Peach ($34): These crazy coloured correctors had piqued my interest. Even though in the back of my mind I was skeptical of anything related to the current colour correcting hype, I was interested after hearing how blendable they were. Yesterday during an excursion to Sephora, I discovered that my local store now stocks Becca and I couldn’t resist coming home without it an immediately applying it. I have to say that I think I’ve found a winner. The orange cast is intense and needs to be covered but the formula is so hydrating and creamy that it does not cake up, while still removing the dark cast underneath the eyes completely.

The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder Skin Glowing Balm Makeup ($42): Without realizing that I was doing so in the slightest, I dismissed the entire The Estee Edit line out of the hype and kind of gimmicks of their product and association with the Kardashian family. However, upon testing out the glorious tinted moisturizer and reading the impressive ingredients at Sephora yesterday – and trying my sample this morning – I have to say that it’s impressed me with its serious glow, added hydration and performance in both the skincare realm and as a lightweight base. I’m seriously considering this one. The fact that it’s not that expensive either is adding to the allure.

Caudalie Vinosource Intense Moisture Recovery Cream ($40): Although I do still have my two Paula’s Choice moisturizers on the go, I really miss the lightweight but rich Caudalie offering. Sometimes I find I need something extra to apply in the morning underneath my SPF moisturizer and I reckon that this love of mine would be perfect.

Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer ($20): After not having much success with my first Physician’s Formula purchase, I guess I had written off the brand entirely. I’m definitely a bronzer lover and I have always heard fabulous things about theirs. I figure, why not start with their newest offering?

Any thoughts?

  1. I have the Becca Under Eye Corrector (it’s salmon toned) and I LOVE THAT THING. I was skeptical too but the formula of that thing is outstanding. I’ll have to check out the other colours.
    The Camille Rose Naturals Curlmaker sounds intriguing! And if you do order from Target US, do please post about your experience! I’ve been holding off…

    1. I wanna try the other Becca too! And I’ve had a good experience shipping from Target US – there were no hidden costs and it didn’t take too long. Plus I had an item damaged and they easily sent me another no questions asked!
