My 2014 luxe beauty wishlist!

2014 wishlist

Hi again!
As you'll very likely know by now I'm on a self-imposed beauty diet this year, and the reward for every two makeup items I finish will be the purchase of one luxury or high end makeup item from my wishlist.  The purpose is to stop my makeup collection from increasing further, largely by preventing impulse buying by sticking to my wishlist. 
Now for the fun part:  the wishlist! I took my time poring over 'best of beauty' posts, watching high end makeup YouTube videos, and going back over my own mental wishlist of things I've been curious to try or favourites I simply want more of, trying to cover every possible type of makeup item I could possibly (and impossibly?) want to buy over the next 9 months or so (until I head overseas again).  As you can see from my collage above, the list is long, but that's because it covers everything and even offers multiple choices in products such as lipsticks and blush - I'm trying to anticipate here!  I've listed them below by category:
Base products
  • By Terry - Touche Veloutee Enlightening Concealer Brush
  • Dior - Diorskin Nude BB cream 
  • Guerlain - Meteorites 
  • Hourglass - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 
  • Kevyn Aucoin - The Sensual Skin Enhancer 
  • Kevyn Aucoin - The Celestial Powder 
  • Laura Mercier - Loose Setting Powder
  • By Terry - Blush Terrybly
  • Dior - Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush
  • Guerlain - Terracotta Bronzing Powder
  • Hourglass - Ambient Lighting Blush
  • Kevyn Aucoin - The Sculpting Powder
  • NARS - Powder blush
  • YSL - Rosy Blush Collector Face Palette (Spring 2014 collection)
  • Chanel - Illusion D'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow
  • Chanel - Le Volume De Chanel Mascara
  • Lancôme - Artliner Sapphire or Amethyst
  • YSL - Pivoine Crush Ombrés 5 Lumières Eye Palette (Spring 2014 collection)  
  • Chanel - Glossimer
  • Ellis Faas - Hot Lips Lipstick
  • NARS - Schiap Semi Matte Lipstick
  • Tom Ford - Pink Dusk Lip Color

Now it's time to get my act together and focus on using up my first two products! Just in case you're interested in those, the products on my must finish hit list are (in no specific order):

What's on your beauty wishlist this year?


  1. Fantastic wish list! I must say quite a few of those items are on my ever growing list too. :D

    1. Hopefully I'll be able to earn more than a few! :)

  2. I think this is an awesome wishlist and a great idea. I think I may have to make one for things I want to buy this year, too...although I do have to keep some wild card spots open for Dior's nail polish releases :P

    1. I've already started drooling over your Dior polish purchases Larie! I deliberately left polish out of the list because I know I'll be buying here and there although I'll try and keep that more low key too.

  3. What a spectacular reward! And so very worthy, too, to the most deserving person. :D

    The only thing I don't think is really worth the splurge are the Chanel Illusion d'Ombres, but some people really like them and work them beautifully. I found myself being unexpectedly bowled over by the stunning YSL spring collection! Maybe this year we lay off the drugstore hauls and go high end, eh, Vita? :D :D :D

    1. I'm with you there Liz - high end all the way!!! I was torn between the Chanel and Armani ETK so I'll see. I know that I'm going to be agonizing over my first high end purchase. ;)

  4. Awesome wishlist, on mine is the glosses from Dior Spring - soooo pretty!

    1. I wish I could buy something from every LE collection but you know how it is! The YSL collection is the one that has caught my eye over everything :)

  5. Loving your luxe wishlist, ugh I don't think I can be so restrained... the new Dior collection calls to me. All those fusion mono's!! You are doing some amazing work with this beauty diet I so admire x

    1. Thanks! It's been almost 2 weeks now and I may even use up 2 products by the end of the month - I just ensure I use some of the products of my use up list every day and that means I'm getting closer every day too!
