Wow! I can’t believe another week has past and it’s time for Wishlist Wednesday. I have been lucky that I have not had to travel the past two weeks and I have enjoyed sleeping in my own bed, cooking meals and, overall, just being home and living life. I am headed back out on the road next Monday for a few months, so you will probably see more travel posts coming soon.
So, as you saw yesterday, I have imposed a spending freeze for the next month. One of the biggest aspects of my budget is beauty products – I am absolutely obsessed! When I was 9 or 10, I remember reading magazines, usually Cosmo Girl, Teen Bop or American Girl Mag and creating vision boards. Now my obsession with magazines has grown and my love for fashion and beauty products have followed on the same trajectory. I have chosen a few beauty products to highlight as my most lust-worthy Spring 2014 products.
First, I am in love with the Tory Burch perfume. I received a sample a few weeks back and I can not get enough of it. I love the floral scent with a hint of citrus – it is perfect for these beautiful spring days. Also from Tory Burch, is the gingham cosmetic case. How adorable is it? I am obsessed with her new collection this spring with gingham – I can not get enough and I am in the market for a new cosmetics case, becuase mine is starting to wear out. Maybe it will be on sale when my freeze is over. 😀
I am also obsessed with the bold lip trend for spring and think that the YSL and Lancome products are perfect for it. The Lancome Lip Lover comes in a ton of gorgeous shades and, from what I have read, are a perfect mix between a lip tint and a lip gloss. I have also ready some really great things about the YSL Kiss & Blush stain. I have not had the opportunity to try it yet, but, from what I hear, it is easy to build upon and provides a great color when applied.
One of my other pressing cosmetics issues is the need for a new foundation. I have been spending a lot of time outdoors and my current foundation is starting to look pale compared to my newly bronzed skin. For years I have heard great things about the Giorgio Armani foundations and I believe the Luminous Silk Foundation is perfect for me. It provides a light coverage but can be built up for more coverage, if I am going out. Also, I have heard that it provides a dewy complexion and the look of glowing skin.
Overall, I like to keep my makeup looking natural and fresh faced during the summer. I don’t like to wear a ton of products becuase they will usually sweat off within an hour of enduring the Houston heat. I think all of the products would help me to look my best in the months to come.
