Weekend Wishlist 06.07.14

The beauty addict in me is stirring yet again as more makeup has weaseled its way onto my wishlist. Matte peachy nude lips, new eyeshadow offerings from NARS and a strong desire to revisit a cult favourite foundation:


Starting with my ultimate weakness - lip products. I was FaceTime-ing with my friend Vanessa and was mesmerized by the lip combination. MAC Kinda Sexy lipstick and Chanel Natural Lip Liner. It's only a matter of time (and space - I literally have no room in my lipstick box) before these are mine. Sidenote Chanel has some of the best lip liners I have tried and they are worth the investment if you are a fan of lip liner. I have to be in the mood to wear lip liner but when I do put in the extra effort, it's worth it. You can't beat a good neutral high quality liner that subtly enhances the shape of your lips and Natural seems to fit the bill.
Climbing up the luxe lip ladder we have Givenchy's Le Rouge lipstick formula. I was naturally drawn to shade 102 (a matte peachy nude, surprise surprise) and tried it on at Sephora this week. This formula kicks ass. It's on par with Tom Ford albeit slightly lighter weight in texture/less creamy... which I actually prefer. I am impressed. 
Moving on to eyes - the new NARS Dual Intensity eyeshadows are calling my name, namely the shade Callisto which is a gorgeous shimmering rosy taupe. I also need to get my hands on the new L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara to see what the hype is all about. My last wishlist item is something I used to own before but didn't get to experience and enjoy at the fullest because my colour match was so awful - Makeup Forever HD Foundation. I am still a pain in the ass to match - even though this foundation has a great colour selection I find myself yet again in between shades - 125 and 127 to be exact. I'm on the fence whether I should just wait it out until fall/winter when I am more pale and can get away with just 125. 

What piqued your interest this week??

  6. I really enjoy Makeup Forever HD foundation, I find it to be really good basic foundation, and its easy to mix with others. I also like the shade range as I find it hard to find foundations with olive undertones. When in doubt with foundation, as long as the undertone is good, I will pick the lighter shade as I find it easier to then use bronzer to deepen it up a bit.

    1. you're so right, Elisa. undertones are the most important part and the biggest reason why I don't end up repurchasing a lot of the foundations i try. the worst is when they dry and change in shade/tone. ugh.

  7. Sephora has the Givenchy lipstick in their 100 point perks for the month of June. You receive a mini size of the shade Rose Dressing. It's so beautiful and the formulation is AMAZING! If you have 100 points to change in at Sephora, you should totally get it!

  9. You definitely need to get your hands on one of the Le Rouges, ASAP. There's not a single shade in the line that isn't gorgeous and the formula is easily my all time favorite from any brand. Plus the packaging....leather + studs = amazing. I recently ordered my third one, but I'm already legitimately contemplating another...
