Beauty Wishlist

Current beauty wishlish

I still haven't found my perfect base, so my current lusts are made up from quite a few base products.  I'm getting pretty sick of my horribly oily skin, nobody has time to apply powder a million times today so I need some miracle products.  I'm fancying the look of the Kiko Mat Base Corrector primer (here) and the Benefit Porefessional Agent Zero Shine powder (here) to keep my shine at bay.  I do love Estee Lauder Double Wear, but sometimes I do wish it was a little sheerer so I'm hoping to try the Light version (here) and rely on the matching concealer (here) to cover imperfections as the weather (hopefully) warms up.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Review

As an oily-skinned girl, I'm forever looking for something to keep my skin matte as long as possible and banish the shine.  I always go for a matte finish foundation, at the moment it's Estee Lauder Double Wear and I set it with a mattifying powder: Seventeen Miracle Matte.  I tend to stay away from cream blushers and over-the-top highlighters because they just make me look greasy.

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox amplified lipstick review

I've been on the look-out for a wearable pink lipstick for a while.  I wanted a true pink shade, with a bit of staying power which would be acceptable for daily wear.  I'm training to become a primary teacher, and bright lipsticks don't go down too well in school, so I fancied a pinker option for when I wasn't reaching for MAC Coral Bliss or Dior Addict in Bow.
