Beauty Wishlist #1

There are so many great beauty products around right now and I'm sure I could add more to this, but these are the top 5 I'm coveting at the moment.

1. I am obsessed with sparkly, shimmery nail varnishes at the moment, so how could this gorgeous shade from Model's Own Beetlejuice range not be on my wishlist? The shade is Indian Ocean and is described as "a calming, iridescent blue with soft pink undertones". Plus, with £3.00 off if you buy 3 and £7.00 off if you buy 5 on their website, I may have to pick up a few other shades too! :-)

2. I've looked at so many primers recently, but Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Light is the one that stood out for me. I have spot prone skin and this one specifically states that it is suitable for oily or spot prone skin due to being oil free and 60% water based. It claims to reduce fine lines and pores, maintain a matt finish all day, minimize imperfections, even skin tone and promote collagen production. Wow! 

3. So on top of my primer I need a foundation. I'm not a massive foundation user, but I think I need a bit more coverage, especially for those spotty, blemishy days. This one is Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals Foundation. I was introduced to the Jane Iredale range by my beauty therapist, as their products don't contain talc, fragance or any chemical nasties, plus they're oil free and non-comedogenic so won't block pores. I already use their face powder and blusher, which I love! 

4. Oops another nail product! I really want to have a go at nail art so this Model's Own Nail Art Pen in Black is ideal. It has a brush end and a nib end so should be good at allsorts of different patterns.

5. I've heard some great things about gel eyeliner, so I really want to give it a try and see how it compares to liquid. I quite like black eyeliner for night but I'm thinking brown might be more suitable for daytime, especially as I'm so pale. I did consider Maybelline and L'Oreal's gel eyeliners but they only come in black unfortunately, whereas Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner comes in a range of colours including three brown shades. I've only just realised when writing this that the brush has to be purchased separately, so if anyone can recommend a good but cheaper eyeliner brush (theirs is £21.00!) please let me know :-)

What's on your beauty wishlist?
