New York Beauty Wishlist

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

In only a couple of weeks time now I will be heading to New York, which feels so surreal to type. I have been dreaming of visiting New York since I was nine (not exaggerating), and I don't think it will feel real until I'm there, and probably not even then! Of course most of the time, we plan to visit the major attractions and explore the streets of New York, but I'd be kidding if I said I wasn't very excited for their selection of beauty products on offer too.

What with stores such as Sephora and Ulta that simply don't exist in the UK, and the largest store in the world, Macy's, boasting a fabulous make-up selection, I think I'm going to be more than spoilt for choice, but I thought I'd round up a few items I definitely want to look out for when I'm there.

Anastasia Beverely Hills - Modern Renaissance Palette

I have been dreaming of this palette for what seems like forever, just longing for the day it will finally be mine! Everyone who owns it calls it their all time favourite palette, so I really want to see what the hype is about. I actually swatched it in the Sephora store in France, but it works out so much cheaper buying it in the US (I end up saving at least £15 depending on exchange rates) so I have just about managed to wait until then. You can bet this will be the first thing I purchase as I have no doubts about it!

Colourpop Lipsticks

I have always wanted to try colourpop lipsticks but since the shipping works out more than the actual products, I have never been able to justify it. I will definitely be hitting up the Ulta store one day to make sure I pick up at least one - at only $6.50 I can't ressist!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Another crazily hyped up product, but I actually could really do with a new concealer so I figured I may as well wait until I can get my hands on the ever raved about one from Tarte! I am in a serious need of a new concealer (my old one just ran out) so this isn't just a nice addition to my makeup collection but a necessary one too.

Becca Highlighter

I actually own hardly any powder highlights and realise it's something I have a real gap in my collection for! The Becca ones look absolutely stunning, yet I've heard so many horror stories about their packaging I'm still not fully decided yet. However they do offer the most gorgeous shades so I am sure I would fine one perfect for my skin tone! The ABH Amrezy highlighter is another one I have my eye on though.

Stila Liquid Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow

I absolutely love Stila's liquid lipsticks, and their liquid eyeshadows are definitely something I have been after for a really long time - the shade Rose Gold Retro is one of my favourites! I have swatched these in Marks & Spencer before and they look lovely, but since they work out a fair bit cheaper in the US, I've just managed to hang on for a while until getting one!

What's on your beauty wishlist at the moment?
