Wishlist Purchases #2

wishlist purchases too faced love flush blushes chocolate bon bons palette mac studio fix powder charlotte tilbury pillowtalk lip cheat mac plumful lipstick

After last week’s third wishlist post I thought I would do a little update on the things I’ve bought from the first two I did! You can find those posts here and here!

mac plumful lustre lipstick

I finally bought a MAC lipstick just before Christmas in the shade Plumful and I really like it. This is a lustre formulation and I apply it straight from the bullet then rub it into my lips so it stains them more. I don’t find that I need to use a lip liner with this as bleeding is not an issue and it’s nicely hydrating and long lasting! I don’t think I’ll ever have as big a collection of MAC as some people because I feel like I’m always expecting more from them then left a little disappointed when it doesn’t live up the hype I’ve created for myself! I would like to try more lipsticks though and though I’m not a fan of matte lipsticks as my lips are so dry I have been eyeing up Mehr, thoughts?

For me this was a huge waste of money! I honestly don’t know how to use it, I bought it as more of a setting powder to add a little more coverage and got the shade NW20 which is what I got matched to in the Studio Fix Fluid years ago. This just makes my makeup look patchy, cakey and does not stop shine at all. I honestly think I’ve only tried it about twice so this is a hugely biased review but if anyone has any tips on how to get the best out of this powder please let me know!

too faced chocolate bon bons palette

My mum very kindly bought me this a few months back and it is quite possibly the cutest, girliest piece of makeup I own! I feel like I do abandon a lot of my eyeshadow palettes for my Makeup Geek collection especially when it comes to the shimmer shades so I haven’t got as much use out of this as I should have! I love using the mattes in the palette for a really subtle daytime look and Bordeaux is one of my favourite shades, I’m loving burgundy shades in my crease at the minute! Too Faced has one of my favourite eyeshadow formulations but I would say that I maybe prefer the shade range in my Natural Eyes palette as I do use every shade in that palette whereas some shades in this one obviously get no love from me (pinks I’m looking at you!)

l-r: Love Hangover, Your Love is King, Justify my Love
I got three of these in a mini set at Christmas and I am obsessed with them! Love Hangover and Justify my Love are definitely my favourites and although the minis I have are absolutely tiny they fit my blush brush perfectly and I can’t see myself hitting pan anytime soon! They are just the right amount of pigmentation and I find them really long-lasting on my combination skin! I still really want the Love Flush palette but I think it’s gone forever L

I got this a few weeks ago along with the CT Instant Look in a Palette (let me know if you want a post about that too!) and I have to say I am really liking it! £16 is way more than what I would usually pay for a lipliner but it’s such a gorgeous natural colour just a touch darker than my lip shade that matches about 70% of my lipsticks and helps them last longer! It’s soft, I don’t have to pull on my lips to get the colour moving and although it was expensive I know I will get so much use out of it! I was under the impression it was a dupe for Rimmel’s Eastend Snob but as you can see in the swatch Eastend Snob on the left is a lot pinker than Pillow Talk!

makeup geek latte eyeshadow pan

I checked BeautyBay daily for months for this as I was forever out of stock only to finally get my hands on it and be a little disappointed! If you read my blog you will know I am a fan of cool toned brown eyeshadows. Although I knew this was warmer than my usual shades it’s just a little too much on the warm side for me to love! However, like all Makeup Geek eyeshadows its super pigmented and easily blendable and if you like warm tones you are in for a treat! It’s been a bit abandoned by me and I’ve changed around my small Z palette a little since this post on my neutral palette of dreams (see swatches here too!) but I think I will get more use out of it this summer when I am a bit more tan and it doesn’t look so stark on my pale skin!

  1. Great update in your new items! I still want to try Plumful by Mac. I'm a huge Mac lipstick fan! If you have dry likes I would definitely stay away from their retro matte and matte formulas. I think Mehr might be matte?? I can't remember.

  5. Such a shame you didn't like the MAC Studio Fix Powder, personally I think it definitely suits those with oily skin, as I tried it once and hated it, made me look so patchy and chalky! I live for Plumful, it's one of my favourites! If you don't own Fanfare, I would totally recommend it! It's a gorgeous pink, and is super moisturizing and perfect for Spring/Summer! I want to get my hands on Mehr and Brave soon as well! xx

  6. Charlotte Tilbury's pillow talk is a FANTASTIC lip liner. One of the few that actually has an effect on lipstick longevity! And it goes with everything! I second MAC Fanfare too - and Mehr!

  7. The chocolate bon bons palette honestly calls my name every time I see it, I want it so badly! My favorite MAC lipsticks are the Cremesheen and Matte formulas, the mattes are soo comfortable.

  8. Ouch, I hate it when I buy something and it didn't work out the way I wanted it to be. Shame about the Mac powder, maybe try it as a powder foundation? Just apply primer and the buff the powder into the skin?

  35. I think Plumful is one of the shades in the MAC collection I would go for too! I don't think I've brought any beauty items for a while but I do want to add a few items that I don't currently have, like a setting spray. Although NYX has come to my local Boots so there might be a few things I'll have a look at there:)

  39. I'm so glad that you purchased Pillow Talk, I remember you saying you wanted it! It's my favourite lip pencil at the moment, I'm sharpening through it like no ones business lol. I find that it goes amazing with most lip products that I own as well Danielle. Also, those Too Faced blushes look so perfect. 'Love Hangover' would definitely be my shade, I can't resist an orange/peach toned blush.:D
