I was kind of thinking that maybe I shouldn’t be writing these kind of wishlist posts because they aren’t as helpful or as informative as reviews but they help me not overbuy and hone in on the products that are actually worthy of purchasing. Also, I think they can be very interesting and entertaining to read. I actually find myself liking hearing what others have their eyes on and if you do too read on:
- Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Sand Castle/ Mint Mojito’d ($44 CDN): I’ve been curious to try these cream-powder hybrid highlighters from Fenty and even though weird highlighter colours aren’t my thing, I’ve wanted to give this shimmery bronze-taupe and icy blue duo a try. I’ve really found myself liking using highlighters as eyeshadow on the daily and I think I’d at least get use of the colour scheme in eyeshadow form. I want to be adventurous enough to try this as a highlighter, but I don’t know if that would be practical.
- Zeep Bath Lavender Soda Clammie ($4 US): I went through a major vendor wax moment last year but after I went through a brief period when I was having stomach trouble, I had lost interest in burning scented things – as the scents did not help with my nausea. Recently, I’ve been getting back into melting wax and I desperately want more of this effervescent lavender citrus scent. It’s uplifting and calming at once and it makes me anxious to be almost out of it.
- Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation ($50 CDN): Would it be one of my wishlist posts without including at least one foundation? Likely not. My longtime love, the Diorskin Star Foundation seems to be disappearing online and I fear it has been discontinued. This foundation seems to have many of the same claims and if my fears are correct, it is the replacement product. I’m really excited about the extensive 40 shade offering and am intrigued to find out if it has that same soft focus effect brightening effect and flattering wear that Star has.
- Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Mineral Moisturizer ($22.15 CDN from Ulta): I’m dedicated to using sunscreen daily to minimize the sun damage, pigmentation and inflammation that my skin has but I really struggle to find a SPF product that my uber sensitive skin can tolerate – I’m someone whose skin hates chemical filters – and I’ve heard really positive things about the new version of Aveeno’s moisturizer. It’s mineral based and has some promising anti-irritants. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen this available in Canadian stores as of yet.
- Kiss Blowout Lashes Multipack in Pageboy ($15.54 CDN from Ulta): I bought the single set of these lashes a week or two ago and wore falsies for the first time in my life, finding myself liking the results. I loved how weightless they were. I like how subtle they were, adding thickness and wispiness for the most part – only subtle in comparison to other lashes, I note – and how relatively easy they were to use. Like an idiot, I ruined my pair when removing the glue and I want another few pairs. They were definitely beginner-friendly and the thin band made them incredibly comfortable.
- NARS Natural Radiance Longwear Foundation ($60 CDN): Any foundation that has radiance or glow in its name has me instantly intrigued but upon hearing that it’s super-smoothing over texture and imperfections, my interest has definitely been piqued. Also, I’m kind of embarrassed for not having many foundation favourites with extensive and inclusive shade ranges to recommend and I’d like to remedy that. And in order to do that, I need to try more foundations that fit into the category. It comes in 33 shades and supposedly works on a variety of different skin textures and types.
- Rosegirls Limited Edition Mini Melters in Cool Beans ($7.50 US): As much as I’ve been trying to melt through the stash of wax that I have, I can’t let the re-release of this favourite sweet lavender blend of mine pass by without picking up a bag. It’s so calming with a blend of sweet lavender and peppermint that’s offset by a hint of the sweet vanilla bean noel. If you like lavender scents and want to or are willing to order from an indie vendor.
