Brands I Want to Try More From


Since starting a proper grown-up job in September and having a couple of quid lying around I can't help having a look around the internet for even more beauty bits to add to my collection.  There are a few brands I've tried a few bits from (and loved) which I'd love to pick up more from.
Illamasqua

In the past I've tried and loved their Matte Veil primer, and this is their powder blusher in Lover, but that's all I've tried.  I love the look of their Sculpting Powder Duo, the Blush Up Brush and the Precision Ink Eye Liner - I've read brilliant things about all of them.

NARS
I admit it, I'm a bit of a NARSissist - I've got quite a few pieces from them (brand focus on the way) but I'm pretty sure you can never have too much! I'd love to try the Creamy Concealer, the Matte Multiple bronzers and blushers, and all of the lip pencils.  I've yet to try any lip bits from NARS, but I've got my eye on those pencils.

Revlon
As long as high-end brands, I still love a good find on the high street.  I love these Revlon matte lip pencils, and I'm in love with the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, but I haven't tried much else from them.  I'd like to try the Photoready Cream Blush and the Colourstay Gel Envy nail polishes.

YSL
I am an absolute sucker for this high-end gold packaging.  I feel all fancy whipping it out of my bag at every chance I get.  I have tried the Babydoll mascara and the Rouge Voloupte lipstick, but I'm eyeing up the cute little Kiss and Blushes, Black Opium perfume and I wouldn't mind giving the cult Touche Eclat a go.

Laura Mercier
I love this little Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine (and wouldn't mind testing out a few other shades), and I adore their Mineral Powder foundation but when I tried the Silk Creme foundation a few years ago I wasn't a fan at all.  It hasn't put me off though, I'd like to try the Secret Camouflage concealer, the Caviar Stick Eye Colour and the Lip Glaces.

Are there any brands you'd like to try a few more bits from?

  2. I love both Illamasqua and NARS, I really recommend the precision gel liner from Illamasqua, absolute perfection. NARS is a brand I only starting using over the last twelve months and have since stocked up on their lipsticks and eyeshadows, especially their eyeshadows! But I need more from them, oooh and more Lipstick Queen lipsticks!!

  3. Nars is slowly becoming one of my favorite brands, which is really dangerous for my wallet, but you will not regret buying the Radiant Creamy Concealer! It is one of my all time favorites! And I really want to try YSL too, I'm just not sure if I need to start paying $35 for lipsticks.

  6. I loved this post! There are so many brands that I want to experiment with more and a few of them have actually been mentioned in this post. I set myself a bit of a goal to try out more offerings from Nars at the beginning of the year and they're so worth investing it. I'm so happy with the products I've picked up and can not wait to test out more! Thanks for sending your link over in the twitter chat!
