All I Want for Spring Wishlist: V’s edition!

Hey Pretty Lovelies!

Given the weather this weekend, and after doing some sad window shopping this afternoon (why is payday not until tomorrow!!!! The struggle is real), I thought I would do my own version of T’s Spring Wishlist post that you can find here. These are the bitties that I’m saving up for/drooling over to try in the next few months!

1. Zoeva – Naturally Yours Palette $20.00 USD
After watching Pixiwoo’s most recent Khloe Kardashian video, I want this palette. Just amazing colours and absolutely right up my alley for my most used colour scheme.

2. Estee Lauder Day Wear BB Cream $39.00
I’ve always wanted to try this, as I’ve continuously heard amazing things. Whenever the weather gets nicer I always tend to reach for the lightest possible coverage products to get me through those sticky days.

3. Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher 25 GBP
I’ve been seeing this used a lot recently in many youtube tutorial and favourite videos…and I’ve heard it’s much better than the similar YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch. I’m just so curious about her entire line!

4. Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow 38.50 GBP
I have a slight obsession with primers, and I must say it’s getting a little out of hand – so no wonder why this is on the list!

5. Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade $18.00
I think everyone and their mothers have this on their wishlist. It has been in so many recent videos that I’ve watched lately and I think will really become a staple in my eyebrow routine. Beautiful!

6. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recover Complex II $105.00
Nothing shocking about this one – I think everyone knows that I’ve wanted to try this forever, just haven’t had the gut to pull the trigger on it yet due to its pricetag…but as of more recently I absolutely have been budgeting more for my skincare vs. makeup, so this Spring may be the time I finally try it out!

7. Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set $68.00 USD
I have been wanting this set for MONTHS now ever since I started hearing the rumour mill about Zoeva brushes. But everytime I’ve got an email saying it’s back in stock, it’s gone again! Ohhhhh maybe one day the heavens will allow us to finally meet and spend happily ever after together.

Wish me luck on sticking to my budget to try all of these amazing products out this Spring! (and of course, write some reviews!)

All I Want for Spring Wishlist Part 2


all I want to springpart2Hey Pretty Lovelies,

If you thought I was just really good at self restraint and that is why I only posted six things on my original All I Want for Spring Wishlist then you were obviously wrong because I couldn’t stop myself from making a Part 2. Whoops.

springwish2edit1. Essie Nail Polish in Bangle Jangle
I have wanted to get a lilac/lavendar nail polish for ages but every time I pick one up in the shops I put it back down, telling myself I just don’t need it. WELL, its Spring… so I need it. Damn Essie and their wide range of prettiful colours.

2. Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Eye Palette
I mean come on, just LOOK at how romantic and pretty that palette looks? Forget about the fact that it will cost me an arm and a leg. I WANT IT. It’s just so pretty, everything about it, the colours together, the packaging. UGH. Will I actually splurge? Who the hell knows… please keep me away from the Bobbi Brown counter.

3. ILIA Lipstick
I already have a ILIA lip crayon that I love, thanks to my lovely sister Sandy. So I want to venture out and get one of their organic lipsticks. I’m not totally sure on the colour yet, but it WILL be a pink or a nude I’m sure. I’m leaning towards the one in the photo — In My Room or Funnel of Love.

4. YSL La Laque Couture
These two shades look like the perfect Spring shades to me. A nude and a pink, you can’t go wrong. I haven’t tried the YSL nail polish line so I’m going off reviews, here is hoping if I spend the money they are flawless… they better be at that price.

5. theBalm Nudetude Palette
I love nudes… the colours are romantic and the looks you can create are amazing. I want those greys SO BADLY. And all the others, of course. I think when I end up getting a nude palette it will be this one over the Urban Decay Naked palette.

6. Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss
I LOVE the packaging and I LOVE lip gloss so… its a no brainer. These lip glosses have been stalking me lately and It’s about time I get one. I am loving the colours — who am I kidding I want like all of them. It’ll be a a decision in the moment I’m sure. But maybe Streak… or Liar or Rule34 or… ok this could go on for a while.

There you have it — the Part 2 to my Spring Wishlist. Have you tried anything on my list? Any recommendations?

Stay lovely,

All I Want for Spring Wishlist

all I want to spring
Hey Pretty Lovelies!

Spring is coming up (too slowly if you ask anyone) and I wanted to do my first wishlist on Pretty Lovely Girls. It is no surprise that you’ll find a lot of pink on my wishlist, good thing its for Spring! I also wanted to start doing wishlists on here to keep my budget accountable. I’m trying to be a responsible adult and limit my beauty spending. Here are the things I’ll be saving up for.

Spring Wish listedit11. Hourglass Aura Sheer Lip Stain in Petal $31
I already have this lip stain in Flush and Scarlet, you can see the reviews here. But I want another pink shade to enter my stain collection. Call me a sucker for a pink lip and I would not correct you.

2. Benefit Gimme Brow in light/medium $22
From what I’ve seen review wise this product looks unreal! It seems to have it all in one, keeping my brows in place and filling them in. WANT. WANT. WANT!

3. Bite Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Sweety $28
When I saw this at Sephora I almost bought it then and there, but I held back and the fact that I am still fantasizing about this perfect pink means its only a matter of time before I get it.

4. Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub $20
I am in SERIOUS need of a good body scrub, to get rid of all this winter skin and walk into Spring with a new bounce in my step. I can’t wait for this one.

5. Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Lament $14.50 (UK)
This colour is a solid pink to have in your nail polish collection. For me I always periodically go to a great pink colour and I have a feeling I’ll love this one.

6. Soap and Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel $14
I like the sound of this shower gel because it sounds really creamy and wonderful and I definitely want that on top of the body scrub. Plus I’ve only heard good things about Soap and Glory and I’ve been dying to try something from them. And I need a new shower gel experience.
