My Ultimate Beauty Wishlist

Today we’re going to talk about the beauty-phobe I really am. There are a hell of a lot of beauty items which I have been lusting over for what seems to be like forever. But, guess what? I never bring myself to actually purchasing them because I end up talking myself out of it. Every single time. So this is where my ultimate beauty wishlist comes into play. Every one loves a good wishlist, right?

The usual excuses I seem to use are ‘am really I going to get my money’s worth?’, ‘will this actually work for me, or suit me?’ or ‘do I 100% need this?’ and before you know it, said items I was looking at buying are no longer in my basket. I’m just such a pussy lately when it comes to spending money. Which I suppose isn’t such a bad thing, especially when Nathan and I are trying to save our pennies. Every little helps, you know.

Anyway, I’m here to share with you the pieces I really do want but I just never get around to actually hitting that check out button.

Ultimate Beauty Wishlist

Cloud 9 Straighteners | Ride or Die Palette | Soft Glam Palette | Mirror with Lights | Modern Renaissance | Siren Brushes

I think my fall down with beauty items are definitely eye shadow palettes, they’re just so pretty and there’s SO many to chose from! I have actually treated myself to a couple of Morphe palettes, but I just can’t seem to bring myself to spend £40+ on one. I also find that Revolution palette’s are fab for the price you pay for them!

Have you got an ultimate beauty wishlist, are there any beauty bits you have been lusting over for what seems like forever? Or do you have experiences with any of the above? Let me know in the comments or tweet me!

    I totally know how you feel, I want so many beauty products but I already have so many and some are super expensive!

    I’ve definitely been lusting after the Modern Renaissance palette for ages now but I have so many eye shadow palettes it’s ridiculous! xx

  3. I’ve literally spent most of my day thinking about what high end palette I want! I’ve been dreaming about modern renaissance for ages but also want to wait for the new huda beauty palette to see if is worth it! But I always think about how the makeup revolution and morphe palettes I have are so good is it even worth paying extra

  4. Ok I wish I had your self restraint because when it comes to eyeshadow palettes I love a good splurge! I have Modern Renaissance and in my opinion it’s definitely worth the money and Spectrum are my favourite brushes ever so you should definitely treat yourself to those or add them to your Christmas list!

    I love getting new makeup but it actually takes so much for me to really spend the money! Even if it’s something that I really like to sort of have to convince myself to get it. I also really want a Spectrum brush set! On my Christmas list xx

  6. I have such a long list of beauty items that I want, or more so skincare items but can’t bare to pay that high price tag. I actually have the modern renaissance palette and while it is expensive it’s VERY much worth it. I totally recommend you treating yourself xx

    Great post! I love wishlist posts so much, I really want to try the Anastasia palettes too 🙂

  8. Spectrum brushes are always worth the investment! I got some for Christmas last year and they’re stunning!

    I always have a beauty wishlist. I’m trying to cut back right now because I have so much already but I’m forever being tempted by something! X

    Hi Kayla!

    This is a fascinating post and a brilliant concept. Eyeshadow palettes and brushes are always worthy of being coveted! I hope you manage to treat yourself to some more goodies.

    I would love a ABH palette or two but reviews on them have been shaky after the formula changed but it’s switched back again now. Would also love to try Estee Lauder double wear foundation and I’ve been lusting after that for years but I don’t know if I can find a shade light enough! That’s my excuse anyway! Haha 💜

  12. I can totally relate to this post. I find myself in same position quite often haha, but I think we should stop being like that and if we see something we like (especially when it comes to makeup), we should definitely buy it!

    It’s totally fine to have a running beauty wishlist going on, hehe. Sometimes, it’s not about getting your money’s worth but feeling super excited about putting on the product. Love these picks! Hope you’ll get them some day!

  14. That Anastasia palette is gorgeous! I wish I had the money to splurge! xxx

  15. They look lovely! I’ve always wanted one of the fancy eyeshadow palettes with all the pretty colours, but they cost a small fortune and I never even wear eyeshadow! 🙈

    I cannot bring myself to spend like £40 on an eye shadow palette either! Especially when I have got so many already that hardly get used, they are just so pretty! Our beauty wishlist’s look very similar! xx
