Drugstore Wishlist #17sobota, marec 07, 2015
1. MAX FACTOR Creme Puff Blush
I must admit that probably no one will ever convince me that these are actual proper dupes for Hourglass blushes (based on my experience people are too loose with the word dupe), however, they are gaining some seriously positive feedback. I especially trust the reviews of Lovely Girlie Bits, which convinced me to put Lavish Mauve on my wishlist. I don't have many illuminating blushes in my collection, at least not proper ones, so these are very tempting. I am kind of doubtful that these will be sold here, but I hope I am wrong (distributors please prove me wrong).
Boots International, £8.99.
2. ART DECO High Precision Liquid Liner
When I was searching for a felt tip liner the last time, for some reason it didn't even occur to me to check Art Deco (or Makeup Factory and Isadora. I just forget we even have these brands because no one talks about them). I saw this liner on their Instagram and went to check it out the next day. This is seriously, seriously good! I applied it on the back of my hand and it lasted two (!) days. I washed my hands so many times that I lost count, but it didn't even fade. This is really waterproof and it appears it has amazing staying power. The formula looked fantastic as well, super black and nicely liquid. This is on the top of my wishlist.
Müller, 13 €.
3. I ♡ MAKEUP Naked Chocolate Palette
I was never particularly impressed my Makeup Revolution or their I ♡ Makeup brand. All they basically do is copy everyone else and create products of mostly lesser quality, but that's just my opinion and experience so far. However, I read on Miss Magpie that this palette actually has very decent matte eyeshadows and I absolutely love the neutral-brown colour selection in it. Apparently it also smells like nicely sweet. I wouldn't mind having this in my collection.
4. KIKO Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush
07 Natural Rose
I got a bit of Kiko fever recently. I've never actually seen their stuff in person except for a few seconds (I blame my friend for that), nor do I own any of their products, but I'm seriously itching to either go to Trieste or order online (btw. everything is 20% off with a code 4ALLWOMEN. Valid until 10.3.2015). These blushes are just one of their things that got my attention. I don't really own any such type of blush and I'd like to give them a go. I choose the shade Natural Rose, though the internet is still stingy with swatches of Kiko products, but I chose it because I have nothing similar.
Kiko, 7.90 €.
5. BOURJOIS Colorband 2-in-1 Eyeshadow and Liner
Beige Minimal and Brun Dadaiste
Pencil or stick eyeshadows are another item I have none of and I heard a lot of good things about the new Bourjois ones. I went to check if we have them yet a few days ago, but we aren't so lucky. I'm most interested in the light, shimmery shade Beige Minimal and the deeper, bronze Brun Dadaiste. I hope there reach Slovenia. Soon.
Feel Unique, €8.15.
6. KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow
Golden Brown, Golden Chocolate & Golden Taupe
Continuing my Kiko discussion, I hear these a must buy if you ever go to Kiko and are compared to some more expensive brand's one. Almu from Feel Bella also placed them in her five best Kiko products, so I'm very intrigued by them. I'd like a nice natural, everyday shade that I could use when I'm in a hurry and I'm still choosing between three shades, but again I think I need to see these in person, though that discount is awfully appealing.
By the way, if you have any other Kiko recommendations, leave them in the comments.
Kiko, 6.90 €.
7. REVLON Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
I never paid much attention to these and I'm glad the hype has passed, but a couple of weeks ago I was casually strolling through Müller and swatched this just for fun. It immediately appealed to me because I don't think I have anything similar in my collection. It's just a simple natural pink shade that I presume goes with everything. It appears to me that this shade looks different on everyone (my cousin says it looks very cool toned on her), but I hope it will look nice on my lips against my pale complexion.
Müller and Click2Chic, 10.89 €.
8. REVLON Colorburst Matte Balm
This shade of Matte Balms completely captivated me. It looks like such a beautiful berry-rose-natural shade and I have nothing similar. I already have the shade called Unapologetic and I'm fond of the texture of these, though they aren't really matte. Not surprisingly, both Unapologetic and Sultry, aren't sold here, so I can only order from abroad.
Another somewhat similar shade interests me. It's from Bourjois' Rouge Edition lines called 30 Prune Afterwork. I might go for that one because it's actually sold here.
Boots International, £7.99.
9. MISSLYN L'Amour Toujours LE Effect Top Coat
764 Mon Amour
I've been eyeing this for so long, but I'm the type of shopper who carefully considers every purchase and the five euro price doesn't make me happy (let's be honest, it's just a topper I'll likely use only a few times). But it is sooo pretty. I'm really into hearts at the moment and this is just adorable. If anyone is interested, Katja used it here.
Müller, 5 €.
10. BARRY M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint
I don't really care about the formula of these, whether they do dry fast or not because I always put Seche Vite on top, but what got me is the colour range. This has to be one of the prettiest colour ranges I've seen in a long time. It's all about spring inspired pastels and I adore pastels on the nails. Three shades appeal to me most: the light grey Pit Stop, light sky blue Eat my Dust and the mint green Road Rage.
Boots International, £3.99.
This would actually be a repurchase as I already had the wax melt once before (I still keep a small chunk in my drawer). This is one of the best smells I've ever smelled. Ever. It's soft, warm and cosy, it invites images of a warm home and snuggling under a freshly washed blanket. I am completely enchanted by it, so I am dangerously close to doing the one stupid that I dislike - paying too much for a candle (anyone else shocked at how much these candle cost, even if they are huge?). However, I think I'll again settle for just a wax melt, even though it didn't really work the way I expected. By the way, does anyone know a fragrance that might be similar?
Müller, 1.79 - 24.90 €.
