My Makeup Wish List

I keep an actual list of makeup I want. No really. Obviously there are the products that I can't ever forget about (hello, Sigma brushes!) but I often see products I'd really like to try and then promptly forget about them. So I write them down. It's problematic, to say the least. Today I thought I'd give you peak into my makeup wish list!

This thing gets me into so much trouble.

1. Real Techniques Brushes
I've heard some really fabulous things about these brushes. I have been wanting to expand my brush collection, and I think I'm going to start by picking up a couple of face brushes. I really want to try the stippling brush for foundation and cream blush. I have also been dying to get my hands on the expert face brush which looks exactly like the kind of foundation brush I've been wanting to try out.

2. Sigma Kabuki Kit - 5 Brushes
I'm really on a face brush kick. I've been eyeing these brushes for months and months and can't make myself take the plunge and buy them. Maybe one day!

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush
I can't believe I don't own any of these!! I'm particularly interested in Exposed, Dollface, and Tipsy (though let's be honest - I'm interested in all of them). 

4. Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Liner in Chaos
Chaos was 90% of the reason that I bought the Vice Palette the week it came out. And now they're making it in a pencil, which would be totally wearable on the bottom lash line with a bronzey summer eye - right? RIGHT? I don't care if I'll only use it 3 times a year. It's gorgeous. I have to have it.

5. Maybelline Color Vivids Lipsticks
I have been loving the bright lip trend this spring (particularly since lipstick can be safely applied in the car 30 seconds before sprinting into work). It's a great way to mix up my makeup looks and make me not feel like such a bore. These have gotten great reviews and are totally affordable - I see a couple of these ending up in my Walmart cart the next time I'm there!
6. CoverGirl 3-in-1 Foundation
I'm the most intrigued by this. I've heard mostly good reviews about it, and several vloggers I watch seem to have picked it up recently. I don't really have any full coverage foundations, so finding a decent one at the drugstore would be cool!

7. CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Watermelon Twist
This shade just looks so pretty. And it's a balm. In a twisty pencil thingy. I've really been on CG kick after they impressed me with both the LashBlast Volume and their eyeshadow in Tapestry Taupe. (Previously, I avoided them like the plague due to horrific middle school experiences with the brand and chalky blue eye shadow.)

8. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous
I almost picked this pretty orangey coral shade up when I got Sweetheart/Valentine, but I put it back since I didn't know how much I'd love the formulation. But I want this. I want it so badly. And it will be mine. 

What's been sitting on your makeup wishlist this spring? Let me know down below!

XOXO Samantha


  1. HAHA, I love that you typed up an actual list, you're not playing around! You have a lot of good stuff on here, you're going to love the Tarte blushes! The Color Vivid lipsticks are on my wish list as well!

    1. When I get something, I delete it off the list - this baby has been going for something like 3 years XD I've got my 20% off at Ulta on everything, and I'm really tempted to pick up a Tarte blush, but I soooo know I shouldn't be spending money on those right now. But that doesn't make me want it less.


  2. Hey, nice blog. My wishlist is somewhat similar haha ♥


    1. Thanks <3 What are you craving for spring?? Anything I'm missing out on?
