My Current Beauty Wishlist


There are a few beauty items I've been coveting lately...



1. Dolce & Gabanna Dolce Eau de Toilette Spray 0.25 oz ($29.00)
The first time I smelled this fragrance it was on my friend and I didn't really like it. I randomly spritzed it on my wrist one day during a trip to Sephora and couldn't help falling in love with the way it smelled on me. I just want the rollerball size though because I often get tired of fragrances and don't need giant bottles of unused perfume sitting around on my dresser.

2. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette ($29.00)

I've been eyeing this palette for ages. It's got buttery shadows in the perfect everyday colors. I keep prevaricating because I'm sure I can find similar colors for less but theres something about this little set that keeps me coming back. 

3. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Hustle ($20.00)

I'm lusting after this liner because Lily Pebbles, the Queen of the Brown Smokey Eye, raves about it and it looks fantastic on her. I want some brown smokiness in my life.

4. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask 3.4oz ($25.00)
Another blogger favorite, this mask is said to get deep down into your pores and clear all the gunk away. I've been looking for a comparable mask for less but haven't been having any luck. I think I'm just going to have to shell out for this beloved mask. 

5. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion ($17.00)
I'm always looking for the holy-grail spot treatment. This one has been raved about by celebrities and bloggers alike. I really want to give this one a try.

6. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in Light ($20.00)
The bronzers I currently have in my arsenal just aren't doing it for me anymore. They look muddy and overdone on my skin. EssieButton and several other bloggers have raved about how well this bronzer works on fair skin and I'm sold. I'm hoping this will be the perfect transitional contour color for the Fall.

7. Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream 1.7oz ($6.00)
I need a hand cream for my desk and handbag. I'm awful with moisturizing and my hands get so dry during the day. It doesn't have a strong scent and seems thick enough to do the job.

8. The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream ($18.00)
Every time I try shopping for BB creams and tinted moisturizers I'm disappointed by the lack of matte finish products. Why can't oily-skinned girls get some BB love, hmm? This one promises to keep you shine-free and tackle your blemishes with tea tree oil while evening and perfecting your skin tone. I'm definitely ready to put those claims to the test and give this baby a spin. The Body Shop constantly has 40% off sales, so the next time one comes around I'll hopefully be the proud owner of a new bronzer and bb cream.

There are definitely some other items I remembered after I put this list together but these are the products I've been jonesing for the most. What products are you ladies currently coveting? Have you tried any of the these and are they worth purchasing?

  1. I love LOVE that charcoal mask! I splurged a while back and it was definitely worth it. I am also super interested in the BB cream since I have very problematic skin. I may have to pick it up the next time they have a sale.

    1. Every time The Body Shop has a sale I check to see if it's included and it hasn't been yet. As soon as it is I'm going to pounce and get the bronzer as well.

      I tried a cheaper drugstore charcoal mask and it wasn't at all what I was hoping for so I might just have to go for it.
