Beauty Wishlist: August 21, 2011

Hey beauties,

By the time you read this I'm probably on a plane to California or in California.  Don't let the date fool you, I'm writing this on the 11th.  Anyway, I've been doing these wishslists for awhile and each time, I re-cap on what I got from my last wishlist.  By the way, I'm thinking about doing these every month, let me know if you would like that.  From my last wishlist I got the NARS Dolce Vita Lip Gloss and a mini version of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes (but it still counts!).

1. Benefit They're Real! Mascara

I've heard so much about this mascara and I've seen pictures, videos etc. proving to me this mascara will help me with what I like to call "short-eyeslashes syndrome".  I hope I can get this mascara but I never have bought a full size high-end mascara before and the $22 price tag might send me running the opposite way.

2. Sephora Favourites: Beauty & The Bride

Sephora's value sets always catch my eye but this one especially made me think " I WANT THAT NOW!".  I'm not a soon-to-be bride, thank gosh because I'm only 15.  This $50 kit comes with a Josie Maran Argan Oil Colour Stick is Rosy, a Stila eyeshadow in Kitten, Sephora by OPI nail polish in True Romantic, Benefit The POREfessional, Lancome Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling, Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes! Mascara in Black, bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer, Sephora Collection Flashy Liner Waterproof in Flashy Black, Buxom Big & Healthy Lipstick in Brooklyn, Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens, Flora by Gucci Eau Fraiche, Voucher for a complimentary special occasion makeover at the Sephora in-store beauty studio and a reusable keepsakes box.  All that is valued at $108.

3. Urban Decay 15 Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

I'm sure you all have already heard about this, seen it, or own it.  This seems to be the new craze and a new must have.  Kind of like the NAKED palette. This new palette comes with 15 never before seen/released eyeshadows and a really pretty box.  I can't spending $55 on a product when I don't even wear eyeshadow.  For now, I'll just stare at the pretty colours and amazing box it comes in.

4. Julep Nail Polishes

I've been eyeing these for awhile now but always forgot to include them in a wishlist post.  Julep's nail polishes just look so pretty and have a huge variety of colours to choose from.  In particular I want the colour Taylor because that's my name.  But all the colours are just so beautiful.  These retail for $14 a polish.  I'm waiting for them to come in stores near me so I don't have to order online.

5. Butter London Nail Polishes

I recently spotted Butter London when I was in Holt Renfrew buying my favourite nail polish Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday, which I did a blog post all about.  I heard about these through MakeupByTiffanyD.  The have so many pretty colours and cute sets.  This line used to be only available in London's airport, Heathrow, but I guessed it spread across the world.

6. Sigma Make Me Classy Brush Set

This brush set comes in 4 colours, coral, purple, black and blue and has 12 brushes.  This kit is $99, when you look at it, it's not that expensive but still a lot.  It's great if you're a beginner and want some brushes but I'm not a beginner and already have LOADS of brushes so I unfortunately can't get it right now.

7. Real Techniques Brushes

Real Techniques is a brush line founded by Sam from Pixiwoo on YouTube.  These brushes are said to be amazing but they aren't sold in Canada yet.  In the US they are sold at Ulta.  I assure you, when they are sold in Canada I will be getting them.

So that is it for my beauty wishlist today.  I hope you enjoyed reading this and let me know what's on your beauty wishlist.

Taylor, xoxo.
