Wishlist Wednesday: Beauty Edition

Hi Beauties and Fashionistas!
My name is Mary and I'll be bringing you this week's addition of Wishlist Wednesday! This week's list will be all about beauty products! I run a beauty blog called Pink Me Please! (www.pink-me-please.blogspot.com) that you guys should definitely check out if your into beauty and all things girly. A little bit about me, I'm an American living in Australia. I'm doing my MA in International Business but my real passion is fashion and beauty. All the products I'm listing below are available pretty much worldwide (with the exception of the sephora glosses which are exclusive to the store) but I've linked them to the US websites and put the prices in USD. Many of the products on here would also make great gift ideas for your friends or family. Some of the products I've already tried and some I haven't, but they're all on my Christmas wishlist!!!

Soap and Glory - The Righteous Butter - Sephora $18
http://www.sephora.com/the-righteous-body-butter-P294724?skuId=1368646
I use this body butter twice a day and it is AMAZING. It is by far the best moisturizer I've ever used. It has a rich creamy texture but isn't greasy and doesn't leave a residue. It makes your skin super soft and smells exactly like Chanel's Coco Madmoiselle perfume (very girly and floral). This is perfect for winter when your skin gets all dry and yucky!

Korres Lip Butter - Sephora $12
http://www.sephora.com/lip-butter-P199109?skuId=1183664
This lip product has been at the top of my wishlist for a very long time! I tried it once in a Mecca store and it was amazing! The colors are really vivid and pretty. The texture is rich and it keeps your lips moisturized while looking much prettier than chapstick. I especially like the color Quince which is a lovely rose shade that flatters all skin tones.

Sephora Collection Gloss Lab - Sephora $25http://www.sephora.com/gloss-lab-P376036?skuId=1430719
This set is an amazing buy! You get 10 different gloss shades in a variety of colors for only $25. Considering Sephora's glosses are usually $10 a piece, that a great bargain! I'm a real fan of sets because you get so much value for your money. Even if you end up with one or two products that aren't great matches for you, you can give those ones to a friend and then you still have many more! Sets almost always work out to be cheaper than buying the product individually so I definitely recommend finding ones for the items on your wishlist!

Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker Blush and Bronzer - Drugstore.com $16 eachhttp://www.drugstore.com/physicians-formula-ph-matchmaker-ph-powered-blush-rose/qxp392595?catid=183545
http://www.drugstore.com/physicians-formula-ph-matchmaker-ph-powered-bronzer-bronze/qxp392622?catid=183546
I will admit that I have not yet tried these, but I have ordered them and I'm so excited to see how they work! The idea behind the blush and bronzer is that the powder reacts to the pH balance of your skin creating the most flattering shade for you.It also means that you get your own unique powder colors! Cool right?! They also have a lip gloss in this lip that I'm considering buying... AND if you buy them on drugstore.com, you get buy one get one 50% off. That means that you can get both for only $24. Pretty cool right?!

e.l.f. Radiant Glow Face Primer - eyeslipsface.com $6http://www.eyeslipsface.com/studio/face/primer/mineral_face_primer#
E.l.f. products in general are great value. Most of them work really well and almost nothing is over $10! This face primer is a perfect example. It's only $6 but works just as well as a high end product. It comes in a variety of colors for different skin concerns. If you have very red skin, use the green. If you have very yellow or dull skin use the lavender. The clear is good for all skin types. The one that I'm most excited to try is the radiant glow which has just a slight amount of shimmer to it to make you look fresh and awake! I also have a coupon code for you guys: ELF5SA2X0. Use it at checkout to get $5 off your order, that makes the primer only $1 plus shipping! Bargain!

Mineral Infused Face Primer
e.l.f. Essential Holiday 14-piece Nail Cube - eyeslipsface.com $10http://www.eyeslipsface.com/elf/gifts/7-20-gift-sets/holiday_14-piece_nail_cube
This is the newest addition to my wishlist! It's a set of 14 nail polishes in a wide variety of colors. Even with shipping these work out to be just over $1 a polish, which is an amazing price! This would make a great gift for your best friend or secret santa. Or for yourself... just saying.

Benefit Cosmetics - Cabana Glama Set - Ulta $19http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2240223&productId=xlsImpprod4150005&navAction=push&navCount=1&subdoc=2glowingskinwk0512&categoryId=cat940003%20cat80054
Let me start off by saying that Benefit is by far my favorite cosmetics company and so they definitely deserve a place on my wishlist! I love the brand so much because they really stress making makeup fun and they produce some of the best products out there. I especially love they're sets because they come with some many fun things! This set with a mini Hoola bronzer (which has a bit of a cult following!), a mini posie tint (my favorite cheek stain), a mini foundation, an eyeshadow palette, some applicators, and a tips and tricks pull out. This set would be great for traveling or just to try out some of their best products.

And that's all for my wishlist! I hope you guys enjoyed it and found a couple things that you want to add to your wishlist! Make sure to visit my blog (www.pink-me-please.blogspot.com) to check out my other stuff and tweet me (@MaryMcGoye) to let me know what you thought of my wishlist!

xoxo, Mary

  8. oh my goodness!
    I must try that ELF primer!
    I usually use smashbox primer which I adore, but it's definitely on the pricier side for such a small tube of it.
    Thanks for sharing! :)
