January Lust List

Amaze In Style | January Beauty Wishlist

It's been a while since I shared a beauty wishlist on Amaze In Style, so I thought now would be the perfect time to share it! It's a mix of a 2016 wishlist and a January payday wishlist, so bear with the overload of products (out of which I will probably only purchase three or four at the end of the month). My salary is by no means high enough for me to splurge in style every single month, but I do manage to buy quite a lot if I keep an eye out for bargains! As always, most of the items in here at drugstore, since that's what my budget can afford, but if you'd like to see a luxury beauty wishlist, say so and I'll work on it!

#1 - Makeup Revolution Contour Kit

This one is a no-brainer. Everyone knows pale girls need some contouring to bring back some dimension after the right shade of foundation makes us look like a blank canvas, and although I'm always eyeing the Anastasia contour kits, I know they are way out of my league at the moment. From my search at the drugstore, this seems like the nicest price/quality ratio out there.

#2 - Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know I stopped by Sephora earlier this month and tried out this mascara. After a full day of shopping in an overcrowded mall, my mascara still looked on point and I completely fell in love. Now I just need to muster up the courage to spend that much on a mascara!

#3 - Essence Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Yet another product highly raved about on many beauty blogs. I wasn't the biggest fan of winged liner in the past, considering my small eyes looked even smaller mixed in with my poor flicked wing skills. Thankfully, I have been improving with time and the latest 90's trend is definitely catching up to me - most days I only want to leave the house with some brown nude lipstick, perfect brows and a winged liner. Now I just need to buy a decent eyeliner that won't budge: fingers crossed this one does the trick!

#4 - Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry

I'll admit it, I don't actually own any chubby sticks. Gasp! I know. As much as I love the idea to bits, I can't really find affordable ones at my local drugstore, so I've been putting off buying one for the longest time. Besides, most I've seen have glossy finishes and I'm not a gloss girl myself. But after I saw these beauties online, I knew I had to buy one ASAP. I ended up deciding on Sultry because it looks like the perfect MLBB winter lippie. And even though it's a little bit pricier than my usual lip product, I think it will be worth the extra money.

#5 - Real Techniques Eye Starter Kit

I also don't own any Real Techniques brushes. Double gasp! Again, I know. I'm very uptight when it comes to my budget for brushes, even though deep down I know how important they are for a flawless makeup application. Which is why I sort of made it a New Year's resolution to invest on good brushes this year, and why not start with Real Technique ones? The eye brush department is severely lacking on my collection, so hopefully I can get my hands on this set in the nearest future.

#6 - Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush and Contour Palette in Sugar and Spice

Another section of my collection that is nearly empty is the blushers. I was never really into them to begin with, but after I got my hands on this Makeup Revolution kit, I fell in love all over again. So it was only natural I tried more of their blushes next and out of all their blush and contour palettes, Sugar and Spice is probably my favourite judging by the swatches I've seen online.

#7 - Wet N Wild Mega Last Lipsticks in Rose Bud, In The Flesh and Just Peachy

Alas, my obsession with these lipsticks continues! If you thought I already owned enough of these gems, you're clearly mistaken. I won't have enough until I have them all. This time around, I want to invest in some nude shades, perfect for a transition into Spring later on in the year.

#8 - Makeup Revolution F105 Brush

And since I couldn't buy their contour kit without also getting a proper contour brush, the F105 also made its way into my lust list. All the review I saw online were positive, so I'm looking forward to see if it will work for me as well.

#9 - Real Techniques Setting Brush

Another cult favourite I have yet to get my hands on! I've been eyeing it for ages, it looks perfect for the under eye area, whether it's for blending concealer or setting that area (and it may just be me but it also looks perfect for highlighting). This is on the top of my brush wishlist and I think it will make its way into my collection as soon as payday arrives!

#10 - Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte Eyeshadow Palette

You all know I'm in love with my Beyond Flawless Palette from MUR, but my eyeshadow collection is seriously lacking some matte shades. Since I already trust the quality of MUR eyeshadows, this palette seems like the logical next step for me instead of wasting money and time buying single shadows.

#11 - Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair

Yes, I know, I already bought concealers recently. The truth of the matter is I'm not the biggest fan of my LA Girl concealer (shocking, I know). I'm sure I'm just applying it wrong and I'm hoping once I get my hands on the Real Techniques Setting Brush all my problems will be solved. But the Maybelline Fit Me concealer has been on my wishlist for so long, I've just been too lazy to actually go for it. Let's hope this year is the year!

#12 - L'Oreal True Match Foundation

It wouldn't be a beauty lust list without a foundation, am I right? It certainly wouldn't be my lush list without one at least. L'Oreal True Match (along with the Lumi version) are my most coveted foundations from the drugstore. When L'Oreal came out with the newer version I gave up on the idea of purchasing it altogether, because I wasn't sure if the shade I thought I was going to be in the old version (N2) would match in the new one - hence why I still haven't bought it or picked a shade to add to this post.  So please, if you have both foundations and you're an N2 in the old version, let me know which shade I should get!
