Makeup Wishlist

There are a few things I'd love to add to my makeup collection once I procure a job. I've listed them below with reasons why and some pictures. I only have three lip colour options in my makeup kit right now, so I've focused on the need for more lipsticks and glosses in particular.

1. Portland Black Lipstick Company: Bear with me here, okay? I know it's a pretty out there colour. But I love black, and I love avant garde fashion.  Plus Stella Rose Saint Clair gives a very positive review of this particular lipstick in her post on black lipsticks here. It's probably not something I would wear to a job (except Hot Topic) but it could be fun at parties and events if you wanted to make a statement.

2. NYX Macaron Lippies in any colour: More unusual colours, I know. What can I say? These lipsticks are very playful, bright colours - and there's even a black. My favourites are Blue Velvet, Key Lime, and Rose, the Powerpuff Girl trio. Judging from the various reviews of these, they are creamy and give a good solid colour. On the NYX site, many of the colours are sold out; fortunately, they are also available for the same price at Ulta.

3. Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom or Rose: Who hasn't heard of Burt's Bees Lip Balm? These seem good for those days when you just don't feel like putting on a bunch of makeup. I would love one because I have very dry lips, and I live in a desert climate, so I need all the moisture I can get. These also have very good reviews.

4. L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Compact Makeup in Porcelain and Nude Beige: I already use this in Soft Ivory as foundation and I'm very happy with it. I would like some lighter and darker shades for highlighting and contouring.

5. NYX Blusher in Pinky: Another from NYX, a company which I've heard so many good things about. Pinky is a very cute, bubblegum pink shade that I'd love to have for summer.
