My Birthday Wish List

Tuesday, 24 June 2014

My birthday is next Tuesday (July 1st) and I decided I would put together a little list of a few beauty products I have been lusting over lately and wouldn't mind receiving for my birthday *wink wink*. Let the sticky-beaking of my list commence!

1. The Balm Instain Blush in 'Houndstooth'.
I have only tried Mary-Lou Manizer (see my review here) by The Balm and have heard so many positive things about the brand. I really like the sound of what this product promises and really want to get it on my face!

$26.95 AUD (5.5g) from David Jones and Adore Beauty.

2. Nars Bronzing Powder in 'Laguna'.
I have just hit pan on my Benefit Hoola (see my review here) and although it is my Holy Grail bronzer, I wouldn't mind trying something new. With all the hype surrounding this bronzer it is my pick!

$55 AUD (8g) from Mecca Cosmetica and Mecca Maxima.

3. Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream.
I have trialled a sample of this for a couple of weeks now and it is safe to say that my skin and I are loving it. I am nearly out of night cream, so needless to say I need this.

$31.95 AUD (29ml) from Kit Cosmetics and Mecca Maxima.

4. M.A.C Amplified Creme Lipstick 'Chatter Box'.
I did own this, but it does seem as though I lost mine. I can only assume that it fell out of my handbag. I love it so much to brighten up my face without looking too over the top.

$36 AUD (3g) from M.A.C counters and stores.

5. M.A.C Matte Lipstick 'Please Me'.
I love this colour so much! I have already gone through a few of these and am about to run out of my current tube (see my review here). This is a dilemma I just don't want my lippy lips to have to deal with!

$36 AUD (3g) from M.A.C counters and stores.

6. M.A.C Frost Blush in 'Margin'.
A girl can never have too much blush! I have so many matte blushes and wouldn't mind a couple shimmer based ones in my collection. I have been eyeing this one off for a while now and tried it on. I am smitten over it. It's such a nice colour to wear all year round.

$41 AUD (6g) from M.A.C counters and stores.

7. Kiehl's Abyssine Eye Cream.
I recently ran out of eye cream and am using samples to get through them and try to save some money. My last eye cream was fairly basic, but now I am in need as something a little stronger to look after those fine lines that are appearing with age. Happy birthday to me!

$50 AUD (14ml) from Mecca Cosmetica, Mecca Maxima, Kiehl's stores and selected Myer stores.

8. Illamasqua Matte Veil.
I already own the Illamasqua Hydra Veil. It is amazing and works really well. However, I am nearly all out of it and would like to give Matte Veil a go to see how it performs on my combination skin compared to Hydra Veil (which keeps my makeup on exceptionally well, mind you).

$48 AUD (ml) from Myer.

What are you lusting for at the moment?


  1. A great list! I really want to get my hands on Please Me by MAC!

    I can confirm that Laguna is absolutely amazing & so are the Balm blushes! Hope you get some of the items for your birthday! <3
