I Want To Try... | Wishlist 1

This is the first of the 'Wishlist' posts that I've decided I'm going to do on a monthly basis, which are going to include things that I'd like to try (and probably don't need) but haven't got around to yet. All the different bits will range from makeup, fashion, skincare and lifestyle so I think there will always be a good variety, and I will be posting about them in more detail if/when I buy them to let you know what my thoughts were. 

1.  Daniel Sandler | Watercolour Fluid Blusher - I've only heard good things about this and it's always been an intriguing product to me. It's said to look extremely natural and blends into cheeks with ease. I'm currently loving cream blushes but I still really want to try this as it seems like nothing I've ever used before.
2.  Elemis | Papaya Enzyme Peel - I've never actually used a peeling mask before, I was always far too scared to risk it irritating my sensitive skin. Now that my skin has calmed down and the teenage skin days are (hopefully) in the past, it seems to be a lot more forgiving of different products and Elemis seems to be one that I can trust. This Papaya enzyme peel is said to be great for those with sensitive skin who haven't really used anything like this before, and I really want to try it as my mum loves peeling masks similar to this one and I can always tell it makes such a difference to her skin. 
3.  Grafea | Pink & white leather backpack - This one is probably the most random, but aside from the inevitable oversized school bags that were definitely always bigger than myself, I've never actually owned a backpack, and I don't really know why because I think they look really cool. This one may be a bit pricey but when it comes to bags, unless they are casual bags that I buy to just have on an everyday basis, I see them as an investment that I can use for a long time. Plus look at just how pretty it is.
4.  Jouer Cosmetics | Matte Moisture Tint - I am a sucker for trying everything on the hunt for the perfect base, wether or not the perfect base exists is another question, but until then this matte moisture tint is on the list as a light base which mattifies but doesn't hide the natural dewiness of the skin - especially tempting in this hot weather! 
5.  Kevin Aucoin | The Sculpting Powder - I've read countless reviews praising this sculpting powder and I'm questioning wether I'm the only person that hasn't actually tried this, but I guess I've always owned a sculpting powder/bronzer that I've been happy with so I never really thought I needed to try it. I've now come to the end of my current one so I thought it was the perfect time to do so and maybe I'll have a new favourite! 
6.  Brow Wiz | Anastasia Beverly Hills - I'm pretty sure I don't really need to explain this one because it's pretty much what every other beauty blogger is talking/raving about and have been for a while. I have pretty unruly brows and they are pretty much the bane of my mornings so I really have no reason not to try it out! 

Okay now I'll get off Cult Beauty and actually post this. Do you guys have any of these on your wishlists? and if you have wishlists of your own then do link me to them below!

Pretty in Pink Makeup

I think this is such a pretty, youthful look using just six or seven products, and it's pretty much a go-to for daytime. Full on eyeliner and contouring everyday isn't always necessary, so I try to keep it minimal on days when I'm just popping out somewhere. You would think these would be enough to fit the criteria of 'what I need in my makeup bag' but is it heck, let's just say I had trouble zipping up my makeup bag this morning. It really makes me wonder what on earth I do with it all.

Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser is oil free and provides a beautiful even look with a hint of coverage as to give a natural finish rather than a full face - gotta let your skin breathe a little gals. I follow this with Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer which is lovely, non creasing and provides enough coverage to hide anything that may resemble a panda eye - don't really need to opt for my beloved full coverage Collection Concealer with this look. Next up brush the unruly brows into shape and give them some definition, I love the L'oreal Brow Artiste for this as it has everything you need in one clever little product - a must if your makeup bag isn't very...roomy, let's say. Coat the lashes with your favourite mascara and I skip the eyeliner for this look, its all about the cheeks and lips. To get the rosy posy cheeks I grab the trusty Contour Brush by Real Techniques, I know you know how much I love it, and the entire core collection for that matter, but lets not get me started on that right now because I'm sure you don't have all day. I use the brush to sweep the Body Shop All in One Blusher in Flushed just over the apples of the cheeks. I searched for absolutely ages trying to find the right colour that was also inexpensive, as the high end blushers I own are all a bit more bold so I wanted a purse friendly, lighter alternative as well. Another product that won't break the bank and an alternative to the Clinique chubby stick is the Bourjois Colourboost Lip Crayon in Fuschia Libre (I love that name, or anything french for that matter), which is such a beautiful pink and makes lips stand out perfectly for this look. Finally finish off with a bit of powder, and again I've chosen a drugstore alternative to the Chanel which I also like - No7 Perfect Light Powder, just to touch up any areas that can get a lil' shiny. Voila! Pretty in Pink. 

P.S. - Thank you so much to those of you who followed me as I'm now up to 250 on Bloglovin' and it honestly makes me so happy to know you like reading my posts. Keep tuned for a giveaway in the next week my lovelies - it's a good'un.
