Sephora Wish List 1.0

With preparing to go overseas one of the things that has occurred to me is that when I walk into a Sephora I might get overwhelmed and end up buying a lot of things I don't really want just because I get all excited by the bright and shiny things. And I'm anal (lol) so that means I have started to prepare my Sephora wish list and here's a few things I have narrowed it down to so far...

Makeup Forever Face and Body Foundation - I've heard the coverage and texture is a little better than F&B from MAC. I am also wanting to get a Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua but that isn't sold at Sephora.

I would like to try 2 mascaras in particular - MUFE Smokey Lash and Tarte's Lights Camera Lashes. Apart from that I am really happy with drugstore mascaras like Australis TLC and Prestige's My Blackest Lashes (that I have recently grown to love).

Blush-wise I am interested in a few but have committed only to Tarte's Amazonian Clay blush in Exposed and Benefit's Coralista at this stage. I have way too much blush as it is.

Eyeshadow is definitely another danger zone for me. So far I am lemming after Dior's 5-Colour eyeshadow palette in Incognito and Tarina Tarantio's eye dream highlight duo in Elektron/Amber.

I've avoided lip products so far - but I imagine I'll want to pick up a Dior Addict or two as they are gorgeous. So finally I have a nail polish wish for Illamasqua's Jo'mina.

At this stage this list adds up to $229.00 USD without tax. It's going to be easy to get carried away.

Have you tried any of these products so far - what else should I consider for my wish list? Did you want to see more of my US wish list stuff for things apart from beauty?

Hope you are well

  1. You're so restrained! My original Sephora list was epically long but I spent it all on nail polish before I got to a Sephora! I did pick up a couple of Tarte blushes and I love them. I got a new Z-Palette last week but I'm having trouble bringing myself to depot them.

    I grabbed the sampler pack of Tarte primers too and wish I had tested them while I was there - both of them are excellent (the eye primer is so so). I use the brightening one on my cheeks and the flawless one on my tzone.

    1. Oh don't worry this is just a bit of it so far. I promose to go bonkers before the end lol.

      Noting down Tarte primers for later.

  2. I love wishlist posts - makes me want to do another one! I'd go for both of your blush picks and I'd love to add a Dior palette to my collection, not that I can justify it in any way, haha :D

    1. Yay... don't worry I have a few more wishes to share here.

  3. This is great Jac.
    I am looking forward to getting more tarte blushes and I really want to get more of the MUFE aqua liners

    1. Oh yes I want some aqua liners too.... damn it my wish list is going to be huge lol

  4. Awesome wishlist Jac! I have a few of the items actually lol.
    MUFE Face & Body is a sheer to medium coverage but builds up nicely. I love it when my skin is having a good day! I don't have MACs version so can't compare unfortunately.
    Tarte blushes blushes are a must have and Coralista is a great coral.
