Birthday Wishlist

With my birthday coming up, I thought I'd share some products that have been high on my list of things to buy. In a way it is like my birthday wish list, though I know I would have to be very lucky to receive these as a gift. Well, that's exactly why it is called a wish list, right?

1. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard

I have been searching for a good concealer for years, even during high school. I have acne-prone skin and all of my breakouts have left me to deal with so many acne scars that take so long to heal. I've read tons of reviews on this particular concealer and it seems to be everything I'm looking for - very pigmented but not drying, while also giving skin care benefits.

2. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

I've been wanting a brush to apply my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation (SPF 15) but I wasn't too willing to shell out enough for a Sigma F80 brush like I thought I was. This brush is both affordable but also of high quality, and also claims to give the kind of finish I want for my foundation. 

3. Fairydrops Platinum Waterproof Mascara

This particular line of products is what Fairydrops is known for. It claims to give the best mascara application due to its unique wand shape. My friend in uni raved about Fairydrops mascaras for quite some time, and after reading further reviews I was convinced to get one of my own!

4. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

I never really paid attention to the hype around these lip butters, but after assessing my make-up collection, I did realise that I wanted a hydrating lip product for everyday use. I chose the colour Peach Parfait as it looked quite natural from swatches, but I'm also willing to try out Red Velvet, Cherry Tart, and Macaroon.

5. MAC Eyeshadow in Espresso

While I am very happy with my Naked 2 palette, I thought I needed a versatile matte brown eyeshadow that I can also use to set my brown brush liner and gel liner. I haven't seen this for myself yet, but I am choosing between this and Ground Brown.

So that's it for my birthday wish list! I know that there is an obvious lack of skin care products, but I'm quite happy with the ones I have now. I also wanted to add a few wide angle and standard lenses I've been eyeing, but I know that it will be a very, very long time before I can get one of those.

Do you guys have a birthday wish list? Let me know what you'd want for your birthday in the comments!
