Makeup wishlist : October 2017

These days there are sooo many beauty products on the market, and it is kinda impossible to purchase every single thing, so it’s taken me almost a week to narrow my list down, yes a week, but here are some of the goodies I am hoping to purchase in the near future, please note I said ‘HOPE’ because I am sadly not made of money. Also, I am trying to go on a ‘No Buy’, but wow, is it hard when you decide to not purchase anything like the universe keeps throwing obstacles my way, new product launches, sales…It needs to stop.


Essence Contouring Brush – RRP R64.95

“I have too many brushes!” said no girl ever. I mean I have my brush cleaning days and juuust in case something comes up, I need backups. Recently, I have been trying to contour more, but the thing is those flat contouring brushes, creates a really harsh contour, I like mine a little softer and blown out, I think this brush would do that for me.


2in1 color correcting & contouring brush – RRP R59.95

2in1 color correcting & contouring brush

See above comments lol… But honestly, I like the brush because of its color. I love this shade of blue and that is clearly a problem. I also like dual ended brushes, because they are multi-purpose and I am trying to carry a makeup bag. No, I am not one of those fanatics that have a makeup bag, so this one would be great to toss in there in case of emergencies.

Essence Super Beauty Sponge – RRP R64.95

Super beauty sponge

One day when I feel brave enough to show you a picture of all the make-up sponges that I  have, you will understand why I want this one.I feel like the original beauty blender is amazing, no doubt, but it’s expensive for the average person, aka me! I like exploring my options, so that’s why I keep trying more and more sponges.

Now that we have the TOOLS out of the way, let’s move on to some products.

Glamglow Gravity Mud: Power Rangers Edition

RRP I’m not sure but the last one was R280.00

Go Go Power Rangers – I mean who didn’t watch this as a kid??? Like the Sonic Mask, glamglow is playing the nostalgia card here. I need it because it’s power rangers, and how impulsive can one person be? I need to stop. However, that gold is going to look so cool! Let me know if you will be purchasing this, and why?

Essence Fresh & Fit Range – RRP R79.95

They had me at Pore Minimizing effect! In this post, I am only including the primer because I am not sure if I will find my foundation shade, but it’s giving me Maybelline Fit Me vibes, with that name. I mean cranberry water?! If this doesn’t smell delicious, I am going to break down into tears…I love cranberry anything!

Urban Decay – Shapeshifter – RRP R850.00


Urban Decay – Shapeshifter

I did say I was getting into contouring, right? As the #UD brand goes, I want my contour to look flawless and natural, I have high hopes that this product will do that for me. If you’ve tried it, Please please let me know just in case I am about to waste my money!

Essence – Correct to Perfect concealer palette – RRP R79.95

Essence Correct to Perfect palette

I feel like this trend is dying out, but my dark circles refuse to die with it, so here I am looking for my ideal product to hide these pesky circles! I prefer cream products because of my dry skin, so fingers crossed that this one is a winner.

Essence – Prismatic Hololighter – RRP R79.95

I mean who doesn’t love a good highlighter? And if this one really is holographic, then I would basically be a unicorn…Yes, please! A highlighter is actually what started my obsession with make-up…When I knew I could glow, I was all in…Hopefully, I can do a best and worst of highlighters soon 😉

And last but not least 

Glamglow Setting Spray – RRP R400.00

Glamglow Setting Spray

I don’t think I “NEED” another setting spray, but I need this one hahaha! Again dry skin, setting sprays are my jam, because I don’t enjoy powders. So if not why not right? On this list, I will have to play ‘Inky Pinky Ponky’ because some of these are not cheap items…At All! Wish me luck!
