2015 Wishlist


A new everyday foundation – my everyday this past few months has been either just my MAC concealer or No7 Stay Perfect Light but I am not 100% sold on the finish and staying power. I am on the look out for a simple drugstore foundation that has great coverage and finish but is light enough to use everyday. Any recommendations would be muchly appreciated 😊

Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation – I am always on the lookout for a good foundation and although 2015 is about finding the best drugstore buy I am also coveting this bad boy. Kim K allegedly wore this on her wedding day so what better advertisement is there 😜

Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed – my skin has been all over the place this last year and my aim is to find something that will bring it back to its relatively blemish free state. I read a great review on this and and now it is on my new year wish list. Also the Sanctuary Spa 5 Minute Detox Mask featured in a another recent review I liked so this has sneaked its way on to my wish list too!


Too Faced Chocolate Bar – For the past year I have been in an (almost) monogamous relationship with my Naked2 palette by Urban Decay. As much as I love it I do feel as though I need to branch out in to new territories and have heard great things about the Chocolate Bar palette.


Lipsticks in general as these aren’t really my thing! I have a couple that I wear but more often than not I go out without lipstick and just some lip balm on. MAC lipsticks in particular are on my radar this year.


A lot of my polishes have been chipping after only a couple of days wear so a new long lasting top coat is a must this year. Not sure on a brand that can deliver this so if anyone can recommend something I would LOVE you!


Dior Addict – this is an acquired smell and not everyone will like this. On first spray it is very strong but as it settles it becomes a musky bold scent that I just love. It has been years since I owned this so 2015 is the year to bring it back!


Lush bath bombs – again these haven’t been seen in my bathroom for years but I want to give some of these little beauties another chance. First things first though, I need to get a good bathroom cleaner and give the bath a good scrub!

What products are you planning on venturing out to buy this year? Have you tried and loved (or loathed) any on my list? As always you know where the comment box is (it’s under the post just in case you forgot!) 🙂

    Love the Chocolate Bar and I got it as a gift from a girl in my class last year. MAC lipsticks are great but for high street, Revlon and L’Oreal ones are awesome too. For everyday foundation I’ve sworn by Bourjois for years and particularly love to mix 10 Hour Sleep Effect (very light, more light a tinted moisturiser) with Healthy Mix serum.

      I’ve heard the Healthy Mix is a good one. I always find it hard to buy drugstore foundation as you can’t take away a tester and I usually end up buying the wrong shade! I did find one from Maybelline that I used for years but they discontinued the shade – v.frustrating! Lucky you getting the Chocolate Bar as a gift. How does it compare to the colours in the Naked palettes?

        I tend to pop a bit on my jaw line then go outside to check if it’s ok, once I think I’ve got it right. Im 51/71 in Bourjois foundations if that helps.
        The shades are stunning but I tend to stick to the left hand side as I don’t find the right dude as easy to wear.

    For foundation I use CoverGirl Clean Anti Oil, it’s about ten dollars and goes on smooth, it’s very light on your face. For eyes I use the Profusion Bare palette or the Profusion Smoky palette, very low price, and for lips I use E.L.F Hd Blush in the Headliner shade. It’s safe for you lips and doesn’t wear off. It’s a very subtle shade and gorgeous. You use a little drop and an angled brush to apply it, it’s about $3

      Using the blush as a lip colour sounds interesting. Some lovely shades of cream blush out there so may have to try it. Thanks for the tip 🙂
