Makeup Wishlist- Bases

Hi Guys!

This is another 'Makeup wishlish' installment, on foundations and concealers! Enjoy!


  • Revlon colour stay foundation- This foundation is very popular with the youtube beauty community, and is, I gather, a full coverage foundation. I also believe they do this is quite a pale shade, so at the moment this is top of my wishlist!
  • Max factor experience foundation- I have heard FashionRocksMySocks go on about this foundation, mainly because there is a very pale shade available. I believe it is a full coverage foundation, and retails for about £10.
  • Bourjois healthy mix serum- I really want to try this foundation, however the lightest shade seems just too dark! This is a problem I have with most foundations, so instead of buying it anyway (as I would have a few years ago) I'm going to wait and hope that they release some more shades-I have tried the original healthy mix foundation, and the shade I had in that was the palest shade (51), and it was still slightly too dark in the summer! 
  • Revlon nearly naked foundation- This foundation seems like the perfect summer foundation as it is quite a light foundation. The only thing putting me off buying it is that the palest shade seems just too dark! 
  • Soap and glory kick ass concealer- I've heard that this concealer is meant to be good, and at the moment the infamous Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is just not working for me as I find it can be drying on my spots, so I'm currently in the market for a new one.
  • L'Oreal true match foundation- The main reason I want to try this foundation is that *fingers crossed* they may have a shade pale enough for yours truly!
  • Gosh xceptional wear foundation- I haven't heard too much about this, and I haven't tried much from Gosh so I think this foundation may be a good place to start? Also, some other pale youtubers use it, so hopefully there is a nice pale shade!
So that is my foundation wishlist! What's on yours?

Hope you have a great week!

Makeup Wishlist-NAILS

SO, this is the second post i've done regarding the makeup wishlist on my phone. This installment is all about NAIL POLISH!


  • Any Khaki nail polish- This was more of an Autumn/Winter wishlist item, but I still haven't found a khaki nail polish for under £5! The hunt continues...
  • Barry m nail varnish silvery lilac- I've heard that this nail polish is slightly holographic, and I'm intregued. I've never delved into the world of Holographic-ness before, so for £3 I'm excited to try it!
  • Barry m nail polish textured- I'll be honest- this nail polish does not look good- It just looks like your nails have smudged when drying. However, having said that, I've only gathered this opinion through blogs and suchlike, not actually with my own eyes, so I'm intrigued to see what this is really like on my nails, and see what the wear time is like, and how easy it is to remove.
  • Fashionista rhythm nail polish- I believe I heard about this nailpolish through Whatihearttoday's Essie alternatives video, and thought that it looked like an interesting colour, so I wanna try it!
  • Barry M gelly nail paint in Papaya- I like the formula of these polishes-they still aren't my favorites, but they have a brilliant colour range so I'm willing to put any issues I have with BarryM nail paints in general to one side so that I can enjoy the pretty colours.
  • Models own scented nail polish in Grapejuice- I've been on the hunt for a replacement of one of my favourite nail polishes, Parma Violet by Topshop, as mine has dried out and gone goopy and the colour has separated horrendously, so aside from the scent, this looks like it could be a good dupe! I'll try and do a blog post on purple nail polish at some point to keep you guys updated on my hunt.
  • Bourjois so laque nail polish in green- This shade isnt actually called 'green', but I can't find the correct name or the shade online anywhere, however, I heard about this polish again through WhatIhearttoday's Essie video, and thought that it looked like a gorgeous pistachio shade., that i'm now dying to try!

So, those were all the nail polishes on my Nail Polish Wishlist-I'll keep you guys updated on any that I buy!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Makeup Wishlist- LIPS

Upon suffering from a major lack of inspiration of what to post on here,  I turned to the 'notes' on my phone. On here is where I make a hell of a lot of lists - like this one, my makeup wishlist! 

I tend to add things to this list that I have heard other bloggers mention (in my price range) and want to try out for myself, so today I thought I'd share it with you all in 3 segments; Lips, nails, bases and other.


  • Soap and glory lip crayons- I L-O-V-E the Revlon kissable balm stains, and understand these to be similar products with a wider shade range, so need to get my hands on these!
  • Sleek papaya punch lipstick- This is a new release, and at the moment i've majorly been loving wearing plain old winged liner with a crazy bright lipstick, and from what i've heard this is an orange-y tone lipstick, with an sheen-y finish.
  • Gosh flirty orange lipstick- Similar to the reasons for Sleek's Papaya punch, however I saw this on llymlrs's beauty blog and thought it looked like such a fun, spring/summer colour!
  • Sleek loved up lipstick- Having previously thought that bright pinks don't suit me and looked slightly tacky, I think its time to actually buy a bright pink lipstick before I decide it won't look right.
  • Rimmel 102 foxy lippy-I have forever been on the hunt for the perfect nude that is the right shade and the right formula, so hopefully this is the one?
  • Rimmel nude delight lipstick-yet another nude.... I'm sure when i'm in boots I'll just choose one...
  • Sleek cranberry lipstick- I know the weather in England is getting (slightly) brighter, but I have recently found the confidence to wear dark vampy lipsticks, so I've been buying them like a mad woman- this will be the last one 'til September-Promise!
  • Maybelline pink brown lipstick- I heard about this lipstick from Sammi AKA Beautycrush's Mac Dupes video, I thought I better check it out as-yep, you guessed it- ANOTHER nude.
  • 17 mirror shine lipstick cheeky secret, 
  • 17 mirror shine lipstick beehive- A repurchase because these have been reformulated so they're more moisturizing than they were previously, so I'd like to test out these new formulas in comparison to the Revlon Lip Butters.
  • 17 mirror shine lipstick roasted red, 
  • 17 mirror shine lipstick belle, 
  • 17 mirror shine lipstick secret

That is everything on my lipstick wishlist for now! If you lot want reviews on any of the lippies (once I've bought them) then let me know and I'd be happy to!

Have a great week!
