Birthday Beauty Wishlist

Since it's my birthday next month, I decided I would treat myself to some beauty products I've been eyeing lately. Being a list lover, it only seems right to create a wishlist of the items I want to purchase. The first item I'm still debating over in my head, but I'm putting it on the list because I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.

I mean. It's beautiful. Neutral smokey eye colors  = the definition of me. The thing stopping me from buying it is that I told myself no more shadows - I have enough. But these are so pretty and that bottom row of colors is calling my name.  

I've never tried any YSL face products so I thought I'd give this foundation a try. It might be total hype but it seems to have all the things I look for in foundation = buildable coverage and lightweight formula. I may get only a sample first since this is a hefty $55. 

I've been looking for a higher end highlight that fits many skintones to use specifically in my kit. After seeing swatches of NARS albatross, I'm convinced I need this product in my life. At first, I never would've given this product a chance since it looks WHITE in the pan! But as I searched more blogs, I found that this highlight is  stunning! It gives off such a beautiful golden glow. It's not glittery so you won't end up looking like a discoball.

If I think of anything else (and who am I kidding - of course I will), I'll be sure to update this list :)


  1. Ooooh I want to try out the YSL foundation! I love their lipsticks and mascara, I wonder how their skin stuff is.
