My high end makeup wishlist


Happy new year everyone! I hope you had a good one, for my first post of 2014 (it feels alien to be saying that, I can't believe that's actually the year!) I am going to be doing my high end makeup wishlist. Being a bit obsessed, the list of makeup I want to try out is endless but I am going to be focusing this post on high end makeup, as I don't currently own any, and while I absoloutly love affordable makeup I think there are some things that can only be found with a slightly bigger price tag!

So here goes:  

1. Nars At First Sight Eye and Cheek Palette £45 here
I saw this palette and it is amazing! The price tag isn't so amazing but it has 'Deep Throat' Blusher (lets not even discuss the odd Nars names...) 'Laguna' Bronzer and 4 gorgeous natural eyeshadows.

2. Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder £23.50 here
I've had my eye on this bronzer for such a long time, it looks like the perfect colour, not orangey or muddy but just a nice shade, and there are enough people raving about it to make me certain its a good one!

3. Mac Pro Longwear  Concealer £15.50 here
This concealer is £15.50, which thinking about concealers from brands such us L'Oreal or Revlon which are around £10 each this isn't too bad, I am attracted to the fact that it says that it is specifically made to cover dark circles under eyes (which I am a bad sufferer of) and the name suggests that it will last well!

4. Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara £12 here 
Every mascara I use, except my loved Collection Skyscraper/Skylash mascara which has been discontinued :(, falls down onto my face after a little while of wearing it which is so frustrating, so I think if I got a mascara specifically for bottom lashes it wouldn't fall down! Again like the Mac Concealer, if you compare the price of this to brands like L'Oreal, Max Factor, Revlon, this really isn't a bad price.
5. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray  £19.50 here
Another thing I've had my eye on for a while now I really want to try a makeup setting spray to see if it really does makeup last all day, I feel like looking the same when I get home as when I went out is a life long dream of mine haha

6.  Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ochre £15 here
The paint pot in the picture is not the one I want but the one I want is a matte beige kind of colour, so this would work perfectly to cancel out any redness/ veins on my eyelid and be a nice base for eyeshadow or look natural on its own
7. Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette £20 here
I saw this palette on a blog post a while ago and since then I've had my eye on it! I just think its such a lovely combination of the 3 cheek products and all in a lovely little compact, perfect for travelling!
8. Mac Pigment in Vanilla £17 here
Again, the product on the picture isn't the exact colour preference of mine, but Tanya Burr was talking about the Mac Vanilla Pigment a while ago and it looks SO beautiful! And the pot is very big, so again I think this is good value for a high end product :)
9. Nars Sheer Glow Foundation £30.50 here
I think this is the most rave about foundation on the whole of the youtube-world and I think it looks like the perfect balance between matt and radiant, and also the perfect amount of coverage, but this is just SO expensive!
10. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder £38 here
Another ridiculously expensive highly raved about product! This powder looks so amazing, like it mattifies skin but still lets your foundation shine through without being cakey, it just looks beautiful.
11. Magnetic Lash 1-2-1 Lash Extension System £24.99 here
I saw Fleur-de-force talk about this mascara, and I've researched it since and despite its long application time it seems to give every person who owns it amazingly long-false looking eyelashes. The most annoying thing about this is that it was in the Boots sale for £6 but by the time I got to it, they were all out of stock *sad face*
12. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette £37 here
What makeup obsessed person doesn't already own/want an Urban Decay Naked Palette? Exactly, case closed. I chose the Naked 2 because I like all 3 palettes however I think I'd be less likely to use the pinky-toned shades in the Naked 3 and the Naked 1 and 2 are very similar but I prefer the packaging of the Naked 2.
13. Nars Blush in 'Albatross' £21.50 here
This is advertised as a blusher but it's clearly a highlighter, and a very beautiful one at that. I love the look of completed cheeks, contoured, highlighted and blushed, I just think it looks so lovely and this highlighter is beautiful!
14. Benefit Erase Paste £19.50 here
Again with the under eye concealers! I am a bit of a concealer junkie and I'd love to add this one to my collection! It looks so heavy duty but I've never heard anyone complain about it being cakey or not lasting :)
In no way am I saying that I will be buying all, or even any, or these products I just thought I'd share with you some of the higher end makeup items that I've had my eye on :)
What's on your high end makeup wishlist?
