Beauty Wishlist: February 2012

Every once in a while, I like to do "wishlist" blog posts to share which products/items I've been lusting over lately. With all of these spring product releases, I'm practically drowning in desire, so I thought I would share which items I'm eyeing most! Note: All photos used in this post are official promo images, as I do not physically have the products to photograph myself. If you would like to see actual product photos/swatches, a Google image search will give you an even better idea of what they look like!

1.) NARS Spring 2012 Collection blush in Gaiety: No surprise here. This new blush from the Spring 2012 collection is a matte candy pink that is to die for. What I especially love about Gaiety is it appears to be NARS Desire's cousin for fair to medium skin tones. Desire is a similar bright pink that is a bit darker, much brighter, and a bit over the top for my skin tone. Gaiety is lighter, more sheer, and more wearable for me!

2.) NARS Spring 2012 Collection single eyeshadow in Lhasa: This is a somewhat unique silvery-grey-taupe shade in the sense that it has a significant lavender tinge to it. Translation: when I describe it this way it makes the product sound like something I don't have anything like! Denial much? I still want it.



3.) Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation:
After experiencing the awesomeness of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes, I'm especially interested in the foundation. If it is anything like the clay blushes in terms of staying power and wearability, I think I would be in love.



4.) butter LONDON "The Black Knight" Nail Polish:
This is one of those polishes I initially overlooked when I saw its release photos. However, while visiting my friend Ingrid (and rummaging through her nail polish stash!) last month, I had the chance to see it in person and definitely changed my mind. This is one of of the few black based glitters I actually quite like! Now the question is... do I wait to get it and risk missing my chance? Or justify the splurge while it is still in stores? (This one is limited edition.)




5.) Kiehl's Creme de Corps:
This is another product I discovered while raiding Ingrid's product closet last month (oh the joys of staying at beauty friend's place!). I cannot even put into words how amazing this cream is. It is the most luxurious, thick, moisturizing butter I have ever put on my skin. It puts every body butter I have ever used to shame, and as soon as I finish all of mine up, a jar of this will be mine!


Well there you have it: my current beauty wishlist! What items have you been lusting over lately?
xx, Allison

  7. I love the Tarte foundation. My favorite way to apply it is the beauty blender. I have dry/normal skin and it lasts on me for 8 hours without touch-up. Looking forward to your opinions on it.

  27. I saw Ingrid's What's in my shower video and I have been lusting over the creamed coconut and almond shower smoothie! It looks so moisturizing! Also I've never tried Lush products before but they sound so good. Could you do a what's in my shower video? I've just been curious on what people have been using for shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. Also I'd like to know what your favorite Lush products are!

    ReplyDelete
  28. OMG I want everything on your list!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've been lusting over the new Chanel limited edition blush - so I gave in and bought that today! Next on my wish list, is the same Nars eyeshadow you mentioned, Lhasa is such a lovely colour - must have it :)

  32. I've been using the Tarte foundation for the last few weeks and I LOVE it!! Very blendable and smooth and makes me look flawless, yet it's lightweight and doesn't look cakey at all. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. i want to try the tarte foundation too!! check out my blog (:

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have been lusting over the Tarte Foundation and Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua foundation - though I don't know if I can justify buying this many higher end foundations all at once.
    I'm also lusting after a few Lush products as well as Butter London's nail polishes & a few other spring nail polish releases =D

  38. I stalked my local Ulta and Nordstrom to find the Black Knight, and bought the last holiday duo (BK and Tart with a Heart). I loooove it! I love it so much that I bought another one when Nordstrom restocked since it's limited. It's fantastic!

  41. I also want a Creme de Corps :) and several MAC items...

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've been hesitant about buying that butter LONDON polish too. And argh I've been wanting some Real Techniques brushes for awhile but keep hesitating whether or not to get them :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I hate to be an enabler... but... you NEED Gaiety! I have to physically force myself to use something else every day now. I love it paired with the Cotton Candy Revlon lip butter.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I didn't have a good experience with the Tarte foundation. It was super hard to find a matching color (I'm an NW 20 - maybe that's why) and it sort of looks like a liquid/mousse if that makes sense?

    But the brush is flipping fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great wishlist, that Butter London polish is gorgeous!

  48. I have the Tarte brush, I wasn't a fan of the foundation it didn't work well with my skin(normal) it looks really nice on people that have oily skin because of the Amazonian Clay in it. It sucks up all the oil... the Brush is to die for though

    ReplyDelete
  49. I will like to try the amazonian clay foundation as well! How much does it retail for?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I LOVE the foundation! I am an NC20, and there really isn't one that matches. Medium is a touch to dark and Light is a touch too light. I had to buy both to mix to the perfect shade. It is lovely. A wonderful finish. And that brush!?! AMAZING. I use my Sigma round top kabuki to apply the foundation instead though. I use the Tarte "Foundation" brush as a powder brush. It's perfect and so soft.

  51. The nars blush look so freaking nice! I'm slightly jealous of the sound of ingrid's beauty cupboard x

  52. A makeup artist at the NARS counter put gaiety on me and I loved it. I'm fair and have blue eyes like you. I do have brown hair but I could see it looking great on you!

  61. Before I respond to your query about my own wishlist, I was wondering if I could make a request. You're well known for loving blushes, and I was wondering if you could do a "here's what shade of blush I recommend with these types of eyeshadows" (as either a video or a blog post I suppose). I, for one, would find it very helpful.

    As for my own wishlist... god, it seems never-ending. I'm on a Maybelline color tattoo buying spree, but trying to spread it out over several paycheques... (i.e., buying two every two weeks as I get paid...), but I've also got a running list of things I keep meaning to get from MAC, and then just never do because other newer stuff comes out and I forget about the ones I already had on my list! So my actual running list for MAC is as follows: eyeshadows: Typographic, Quarry, Contrast (after I saw that beautiful blue-shadow video you did recently), Blanc Type and Smoke and Diamonds (if they would just re-promote it!) And the 3D Silver Glitter is another one of the ones on list.

  62. Totally want to try the tarte foundation too - the tarte amazonian clay tinted moisturizer is one of my faves! :)

  63. I WANT ALL OF THE LIMECRIME LIPSTICKS! Do you own any? If so I would love to see a review of what you think?
