You saw is correctly, I am turning 50 this month! It feels unreal, but I have decided to (somewhat) embrace it! I’ve never done a wish list or a products I’m interested in buying post, but I thought this might be fun!
First, from my Sephora loves list:
Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer ($58 USD) — This is a “velvety priming balm of pressed silk that smooths and makes makeup last longer while keeping it out of skin, helping to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.” It is currently out of stock at Sephora. It is very expensive for a primer. But, I have huge pores, especially during allergy season, and I’ve heard this is excellent!
Benefit Cosmetics Blush Bar Cheek Palette ($58) — This cheek palette includes Benefit’s new Gold Rush warm golden-nectar blush, as well as the iconic Hoola matte bronzer, the bestselling Dandelion brightening baby-pink blush, and more. With shades to flatter all skin tones, this must-have palette has everything you need to contour, bronze, brighten, and define your features. It comes complete with a soft powder brush, mirror, and Benefit’s signature Tips & Tricks.
I think this is beautiful and I think these shades will be perfect for summer. Macy’s is currently having a 10 days of Glam sale I blogged about here. On June 8th Benefit’s boxes of powders — including ones in the palette — will be half off. So I might pick up a couple there.
Fenty Beauty Bomb Baby Mini Lip and Face Set ($23 USD) — I have still not tried anything from Fenty! It’s crazy, because I really like Rihanna and think the line looks amazing. This is “a must-have set of FENTY BEAUTY’S most coveted luminizers for the face and lips in travel-friendly sizes for killer radiance on the fly.” This sounds amazing for summer! I love highlighter and lip gloss. I think I might pick this up when I go into Sephora to get my birthday gift.
In the future, I would love to try Fenty’s foundation and maybe some of their other products. Any suggestions???
Next are some picks from Ulta that I need:
Dose Of Colors Block Party Single Eyeshadow ($20 each) — The shades above are:
Sky’s the Limit (soft brown base w/ icy lilac reflects)
Shell We Dance (pink champagne base w/ platinum reflects)
Lock & Key (medium brown base w/ gold reflects)
I know that $20 for a single shadow is steep, especially in the age of affordable palettes with lots of shades to choose from. But I have seen makeup tutorials on YouTube with these and they are so gorgeous! I would love to try one or two.
Physicians Formula Online Only Butter Collection Box ($29.99 USD) — Escape to the beaches of Brazil with Physicians Formula’s Butter Collection – an assortment of Physicians Formula’s most sought-after, skin-loving products.
Limited Edition Butter Collection Box includes:
- Butter Bronzer (bronzer) (0.38 oz)
- Butter Blush (natural glow) (0.26 oz)
- Butter Highlighter (pearl) (0.17 oz)
- Limited Edition Body Butter (0.5 oz)
- Butter Paradise Eau De Toilette (0.5 oz)
There’s another set sold at Walmart for less than half the price of this, but you
Morphe Laura Lee’s Favorite Brush Collection ($54 USD) — This is available at the Morphe website, not Ulta. I have been eyeing this for a few weeks. The selection has brushes that I would use daily. It inclused 11 brushes chosen by YouTuber Laura Lee.
Now, of course this isn’t all of the makeup that I want, these are just splurges that I would need to save up for. I’m also interested in some fun brand new eye shadow palettes like Laura Lee’s Nudie Patootie, Dominique Cosmetics The Latte palette and one that is launching tomorrow, Lunar Beauty’s Life’s a Drag.
So that’s my big 5 0 birthday wish list! What makeup are you wanting this year?
