5 Beauty Product's I'm Dying to Get My Hands On

I'm going to start a series on "wishlist" blog posts to share which products/items I've been wanting to purchase most recently. The wishlist is of course always growing but this will periodically give you a sense of some things that I really want to buy/try out. 

1. Make Up For Ever HD Kabuki Brush-$40 

Sephora describes this brush "soft-to-the-touch" yet sufficiently firm nylon brush designed to sweep powder on the face. This is a Sephora exclusive brush that was designed for the HD Microfinish Powder. I don't own any Kabuki brushes and thought that this would be a great place to start. I think everyone really needs to have a Kabuki brush in their collection. I thought that this might be good for blending in bronzer, blush, etc so that I don't have harsh lines on my face when I do my makeup. I also really like that this comes with a bag for travel and storage. Over 300 people on Sephora have rated this brush at 5 stars.

2. Diorskin Nude Skin Perfecting Hydrating Concealer-$30 

If I didn't have 3 concealers that I still need to go through I would run out and buy this right now. For a while I debated between this and the Lancome Waterproof one but after hearing reviews I've decided to go with this one. This only comes in 4 shades which might not work well for some but I'm very fair and I think that the ivory shade would be perfect for me. I want this mostly for under the eyes but I've seen people use this on blemishes as well. Sephora describes this as smooth and velvety, this intense moisturizing concealer has unique properties to minimize dark circles and puffiness. I love the packing and think that this could  probably last quite a while making the price tag not so bad.

3. Laura Mercier Eyeshadow in African Violet-$22

Let me start off by saying that I dont have any Laura Mercier eyeshadows and I dont really have much of her makeup in general but I think I'm slowly starting to fall more and more in love with her stuff. I swatched this in the store and just fell in love. It has so much depth and sparkle to it, its just beautiful. I would say this is probably more of a nightime shadow rather than daytime for me but I just still love it. I need to have this eyeshadow for fall! Sephora describes this as a luster/violet/copper shimmer. The nice thing about Laura Mercier as she uses very fine shimmer and you won't have sparkles or glitter all over your face with her makeup.

4. Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Belladona-$20 

And my love affair with Illamasqua continues. I've had this on my wishlist for so long but I think I've been waiting until Fall to make the purchase. I think in the Spring/Summer I tend to go a lot lighter with my makeup and once fall comes I'm all about dark smokey eyes and intense bold lips. I cannot wait for Fall! Belladona is described as a deep pink. It is highly pigmented and extremely opaque. Not for the shy at heart. This is an intense color, hence the name but I love it.

5. Urban Decay Naked2 Palette-$50 

And last but not least, what would be a true wishlist without a naked palette on it. I have the Naked palette but make a stupid decision and depotted the shadows into a Z Palette which I so regret doing. I kind of want a new Naked palette but know that I should just work with the shadows that I have since they are really fine. But the Naked2 just looks amazing to me. I think the cool colors are beautiful and suit me much better than the original Naked palette. Since it is $50 I'm trying to wait until a 20% off coupon at Sephora. I think I can wait until then. I think :)
Urban Decay - Naked2
