As a full-time pauper, most of my makeup comes from 3 for 2 offers at Boots, eBay, budget brands such as MUA or from Very [helloooooo buy now, pay next year!] Granted, there are the occasional moments where I'll go somewhat mental and blow my entire remaining credit limit on eyeshadow palettes I don't really need [I'm looking at you, Beauty Bay!!] but then, I also won't be able to leave the house for weeks haha. So swings and roundabouts. 

After spending a lot of time stalking the internets recently [before once again weeping at my financial situation] I've compiled a shortlist of some of the products I'd love to get my hands on this year. But in reality, it is more likely that pigs will fly, hold down full time jobs and master winged eyeliner than it is that I'll ever own any of these things. Looool [except, it's a half laugh, half cry lol.]

So, in no particular order, let's crack on.

1. Iconic Contouring Palette

This bad boy is all over Insta - mostly covered by celebs with #SPON under their images haha, but they still look awesome. I'm not great at contouring [and I'll be the first to admit that] but I really think this could help me up my game. I'd probably go for the cream palette, as it's a lot easier to blend. 

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette 

I weep a little everytime I see this palette. It's so, so beautiful. I must admit, I very rarely bother with eyeshadow [as I'm sh*t at it] but watching the beautiful Leah at Devoted to Pink blog's Snapchats have made me want need this so badly. It's all about those red, maroon tones.

3. Spectrum Brushes

Again, Leah is somewhat to blame for this new obsession haha [why do you have such amazing stuff, missy?!] - but these brushes are so, so pretty. An Instagrammer's dream. The fact that you can get giftsets of these little beauties in Mermaid-esque, clam shell cases makes me emosh beyond belief. I need to get my hands on a set of these. NEED!!!

4. Urban Decay Eye Primer

... I'll give you 3 guesses as to who's inspired me to want this haha? #TheBloggerMadeMeBuyIt #SoJelOfLeah'sLife

5. Any Charlotte Tilbury lipstick

The packaging alone make these lippys every blogger / Instagrammer's dream. I saw loadssss of bloggers wearing oxblood, vampy Charlotte Tilbury shades last Autumn [the gorgeous Kayleigh from Very Berry Cosmo blog stands out in my mind, she rocked the sh*t out of hers!] and due to such [and all the hype that surrounds them] I want need one. K?

6. Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade

I recently [you may have seen this on my Snapchat, username love_lippy] bought myself an Ardell Brow Pomade off Beauty Bay. The brush applicator is fab, it applies like a dream... but it's just way too dark for me *sob.* I've always wanted an ABH brow pomade, but now I'm doubting myself as to what shade I would even order, after this disaster. Does anyone have any posts / tips for me in picking a shade? I have medium-dark brown, cool tone eyebrows. Halp.

7. Kylie Lip Kit

Every man and his dog has a Kylie Lip Kit these days. Buying a dupe / knock off Nigel is just not an option for me - I wouldn't ever buy blag makeup, it can be so dangerous. I'm not really sure why I want one of these; I have a million matte lipglosses. It's just like, a cult beauty item to have I guess. I don't feel like a proper blogger without one.

8. Lily Lashes

I don't need to say much more. Their 'Mykonos' & 'Miami' lashes make me weep uncontrollably. Ultimate perfection.

9. Plumpit Lipgloss 

I recently saw our girl Charlotte Crosby mention that she uses Plumpit lipgloss to make her lips pure massive. I personally love Charlotte's pout [and nose job] and would love both of these procedures on my face. But given that I can't even afford the basic makeup she uses, it's not going to happen, is it. I'd love to try this gloss - I recently reviewed the Perfect Pout lip enhancer actually; which shows the dedication I have to the plumped up pout cause.

10. Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks / Glosses

I love the look of these. The packaging = total goals, the shades available = the dream and every single bird they feature on their Instagram is too hot for words. If I could only channel 0.000001% of their beauty, I'd be happy.


Do you own any of these products? Do you have any recommendations, dupes or things you don't like about them [anything to put me off spending more money I don't have haha?]
