I couldn’t resist putting together one final beauty wishlist for the end of 2016 and seen as i only have a few chances to get this up before 2017 is at our feet,here it is.
Diving into skincare first,the Liz Earle cleanse and polish starter kit is something i’ve wanted to try for a while.I’ve seen a fair few reviews on this now and me being the beauty addict i am,i want it.It’s different from most cleansers on the market at the moment,with ingredients such as eucalyptus essential oils,chamomile and cocoa butter.It’s the cocoa butter i’m most intrigued by,it has to be amazing for someone with dry skin?I really want to try more from the REN range,their radiance perfecting serum is packed full of vitamin C.Low concentrations in moisturisers,serums and toners can replenish the skin in significant ways,something you want to add into your skincare during winter.Out of all 3 skincare products on my wishlist the hydra-calm cleansing milk is the most popular and my most wanted.It contains essential fatty acids and fennel seed extract,which has incredible benefits for a number of things.For the skin,fennel seed extract can reduce puffiness and signs of aging,who doesn’t want to reduce those?2016 has been a year full of beautiful eyeshadow palettes,some i’ve managed to afford and get hold of,others i haven’t.Morphe brushes have been my favourite brand this year,they have the best 35 pan eyeshadow palettes i’ve seen and they just keep releasing more palettes and pigments.The 12s palette is gorgeous but keeps selling out,i hope i manage to get it when i have some spare cash.Makeup obsession is a recent brand that came to boots this year,they have some beautifully affordable single eyeshadows that you can make into a palette and i can’t wait to get my hands on them.
Kat Von D’s tattoo eyeliner has some of the best reviews i’ve seen for an eyeliner.I’m not one to use eyeliner everyday but if it has the lasting power that the reviews say it does,i need this in my collection.Essence volume mascara is meant to be a great lengthening and volumising drugstore mascara,i cant find it anywhere!If you know where i can find it please let me know in the comments.Highlighters have been a new thing for me this year,the closest thing i had to a highlighter was a pod of Avon highlighter pearls!They were great for me at the time,very subtle and acted as a blush aswell.However,i’ve discovered much better highlighters now and they are of better quality and actually highlight properly.My current fav is the Becca champagne pop compact.
I’ve seen the sleek solstice highlighter raved about everywhere,youtube,snapchat and in the beauty community.It’s comes in 4 different shades and i think this solstice palette is a dupe for the ABH sweets glow kit.The hourglass ambient lightening edit palette is gorgeous, it can be used as highlight,blush and contour.You can use it all over your body aswell,which is perfect for girls who like to glow all over,definitely something i’d want.My most brought item this year has been lipstick,i went a little crazy over the Kylie liquid lipsticks when they were first released (who didn’t?) and now i’ve become slightly obsessed with the NYX range.I love these NYX double lip duos,they’re described as being a creamy soft matte lipstick with a gorgeous lip liner on the other end – I can’t wait to try them out.
I don’t own anything from MAC yet,i know shock horror,a beauty blogger who doesn’t own anything from MAC,not even a lipstick.I do want to try their lipsticks eventually,i like the shade velvet teddy,it looks like the type of nude i’d go for and it seems like a safe first choice.If you have any recommendations for a first nude from MAC,let me know.Lastly is the real techniques diamond sponge,the price does put me off and the fact it’s hard to find one that isn’t more white than marble effect.I dont own a sponge like this and being that i prefer sponges over brushes,i’d love to try it.I’m hoping it might go into the January sales!
Hard to believe this is my last beauty wishlist of 2016,i hope 2017 is filled with more beautiful releases.Hopefully more affordable releases too.
