Wishlist Wednesday: Makeup Edition

I don't know about you, but for me, one of the dangerous things about reading beauty blogs and hearing about so many fantastic-sounding products is that it can make me want to spend spend spend.  Instead of just giving in to this, I try mull things over by keeping lists of things that catch my eye.  That way, I can come back to them in a bit and see what I actually want to buy and what was more of just a fleeting whim.

I thought it might be fun to share a few things that are currently on my makeup wishlist. 

Andalou Naturals All in One Beauty Balm 
(Sheer Tint with SPF 30)
BB Creams are all the rage these days, and while I've come across a couple others from more natural brands, Andalou's is the first I've found with an ingredient list I'd be comfortable using.  This promises to renew and brighten the skin while providing sheer coverage and SPF 30 sun protection.  Priced at only $19.95, it's pretty affordable too!

Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer and Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss
Vapour is one of those brands that I've heard amazing things about for years and yet somehow I've never managed to try.  Generally I'm really happy with how my Silk Naturals Sleep in a Jar performs, but there are days when I'd like a little more coverage, which is where this concealer would come in.  As for the lip gloss, I don't think I've ever used a plumping gloss before and I'm intrigued.  Not gonna lie, most of Vapour's line is pretty tempting!

Mineral Fusion Bronzer/Highlighter in Luster
I don't see Mineral Fusion's products talked about much, but I played around with their eyeshadows the last time I was at Whole Foods and I was happily surprised - they're smooth, creamy and nicely pigmented.  Unfortunately, on closer ingredient examination, the eyeshadows contain phenoxyethanol, which I prefer to avoid, so I've switched my fixation to this gorgeous bronzer/highlighter duo, which,  delightfully, is phenoxyethanol free.


Sheswai Nail Laquer
I've been all about browsing nail polishes lately, and these two from Sheswai have perked my interest.  Fersure is a deeper red, perfect for fall, and Stoned is a beautiful pebble gray/mauvey nude shade.  Both are colours I could see myself reaching for a good deal.

What products have caught your eye lately?  And am I the only one who keeps lists of things to potentially buy at a later date?  I'd love to know if you do this too! 



  1. I keep a shopping list, but now we are nearing Christmas I send out wish lists to family because if they want to buy me beauty products I'd like to be able to use them :) I like the sound of the beauty balm as I can't find one with good ingredients.

  2. Real purity foundation!.Audreiana from true beauty by nature said that it's awesome!Since I've just purchased logona foundation so I have to wait'till it's finished.But hey..thanks for letting me know about that andalou bb cream.I was a sucker for bb creams in the past(those with fully silicone ones)!This one is on my wish list also :) Btw,why don't you buy it and review it here?:D curious to know how it is :)

  3. @sugarpuffish - That's a really good idea. I know at least some of my family reads the blog, so this may have already accomplished that!

    @Lovely CosMe - I might end up doing that at some point! :) How do you like the Logona foundation? I've never tried anything from them

  4. Hey, I'm happy to find out that some of the Mineral Fusion products don't have phenoxyethanol! I've been wanting to try some of their products but that's one thing that steered me clear of most of them. I'll be adding the bronzer/highlighter to my wishlist now tho :)

  5. Yeah, some of their stuff has phenoxyethanol and some doesn't, I guess! Ingredients are all on their website though :)

  6. My order is still on US local post office,last time I check it today.It's still there since October 16!! Now that i'm worried,is it because of the storm?:/
    Deffy will review it when I've tried it.Logona and Sante are one of German brands that don't use alcohol as preservative.So I really want to try :)

  7. I do the wishlist thing too. Blogs definitely make me want to buy a lot of stuff! Anything that I think I want to try goes on my wishlist.

  8. Nice wishlist! I didn't know Andalou made a BB Cream.

    I used to have the vapour concealer and it had a nice natural finish, but its not very thick. If you are looking for more coverage at a good price, I highly recommend Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques!

  9. @ Lovely CosMe
    I'll look forward to your review then :) I don't know how to storm effected US mail...if it's coming from somewhere that was effected, that'd probably hold it up.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I might have to order a sample of Lauren Brooke's...you're not the first person to recommend it :)

  10. I also make lists, but I am in makeup rehab right now, I have so much nice stuff so I'm trying to quit buying! It's hard when you see so much stuff on blogs though...
