New Year Wish List!


Spring and summer are my favorite seasons for new makeup, probably because of all the pink and peach shades that come with it. I already have a mental wishlist, including one thing that has been on my radar for quite some time.

Up first is this IT Cosmetics Buki Brush Set ($48). It’s only available at QVC right now. I love IT brushes and I definitely have a thing for kabukis, but I can’t justify the price tag at the moment, considering shipping is $7.

wish3Next is the Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eyeshadow Palette ($39). I have to say this is my favorite color of the year yet! This palette looks gorgeous, and I think these colors would be really flattering with my complexion.

wish2Another color of the year item, the Sephora + Pantone Universe Cooling Marsala Multi Stick ($25), made it onto my wishlist after seeing Allura Beauty’s video on the entire collection. People seem to be liking it in the Sephora reviews as well. I feel like this is a product I would fall in love with! I did order one of the Marsala items- the cheek trio, which was at the top of my wishlist.


The NARS St Lucia Illuminating Multiple ($39) is described as “sheer rose”. Given how obsessed I have been with rose throughout the fall and now winter, I’m intrigued, but will definitely wait for some reviews.


Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache perfume ($55)– I have the hand cream of this scent and LOVE it. The scent is amazing..creamy pistachio pudding, if you’re into sweet, soft scents.

What is catching your eye lately in the beauty world? 🙂

    I have my eye on Too Faced’s Semi Sweet Chocolate Palette! I just got their original Chocolate Palette for Christmas and I’m very impressed! The eyeshadows are insanely pigmented and smell just like chocolate mmm 🙂 I would also love to try their Melted Lipstick in the pink shade Marshmallow!

    Hi Melissa,
    Marsala is gorgeous. Best color I’ve seen yet. I want the cheek trio, too and the lippie looks exquisite. The Nars illuminating stick looks gorgeous in the tube, but I worry about too much shimmer.

      Hi Erin! I couldn’t answer your question about Starlooks on the other comment for some reason, so I will answer it here! It is a good mix of satin and some matte with some shimmer on occasion. I haven’t found anything particularly over the top with Starlooks in terms of being completely unwearable due to the finish. There is not a lot of matte though.

      I totally agree that marsala is the best color yet!! I love it!! WAY better than last year’s color, even though I liked it.
