My current top 10 beauty wishlist! July 2015

Hi there makeup lovers,

So I'm just waiting to get a few things in the mail before doing a haul for you guys (which will hopefully be up very soon). Instead, today I thought I'd share some of the products which are currently on my beauty wishlist! Hopefully it won't be too long before I can get my hands on these goodies to be able to do reviews and looks. This is a fairly long list so grab a drink and enjoy! Hopefully this might help with your shopping list (I apologise if I'm contributing to any binge spending on makeup :D). So without further ado, here is my beauty wishlist July 2015!

#1- The very first thing on my list has to be the eyeshadows by Anastasia Beverly Hills! A couple of years ago, every YouTube tutorial you would see would feature Mac eyeshadows. Nowadays, a Mac shadow is a rare sight as Makeup Geek and Anastasia seem to rule the show now.  I have been lusting over these shadows for over a year now, and it's hard to resist the temptation any longer after seeing the incredible quality of the Artist Palette first hand. So at the next opportunity, I will definitely be placing an order! This is a picture of a palette that I have customised myself on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website. You can construct your own here. The colours I have selected are 'Aqua' (light blue, shimmer), 'Electro' (bright purple with blue iridescence, duo chrome), 'Deep Plum' (deep maroon, ultra matte), 'Warm Taupe' (taupe brown, ultra matte), 'Sienna' (red brown, ultra matte), 'Morocco' (brick, ultra matte), 'Caramel' (warm medium brown, ultra matte) and 'Burnt Orange' (orange brown, ultra matte). I can't tell you how long I've been waiting to get my hands on 'Caramel'! Each single eyeshadow retails for $12, but you can get 8 for $70 plus the palette. I'll be taking advantage of this offer to give all these colours a try!

#2- Up next on my wishlist is the Anastasia Waterproof Creme Colour in 'Icy Blue'. I first started wanting a liner this colour when I saw one of Kathleen Lights' recent tutorials on YouTube (watch it here). The cool, grey toned shadows paired with a vibrant blue liner sent chills down my spine! Now she actually used one of Kat Von D's liners, but I've heard great things about the new Creme Colours by Anastasia. I also saw Batalash use them for lip art in one of her recent videos, which I'm really into. These retail for $18 each and come in a variety of fun shades for summer. You can check them out here!

#3- Another Anastasia product that's been splashed all over YouTube is their liquid lipsticks! Now, I'm not usually a fan of liquid lipsticks as I HATE the feeling they leave on your lips. I can deal with the fact they're drying, but the velvety feeling they leave on the lips makes me cringe! Nonetheless, I've heard that these aren't as drying compared to other brands and when a product has this much hype, you feel the need to try it, right? I think I'll be ordering the colour 'Pure Hollywood' which is a pinky beige colour. I figured this shade would be perfect as it's a nude, and I need longevity in a lipstick most when I'm at work and Sixth Form. These retail for $20 each- check them out here.

#4- Ok, this list is becoming a bit ABH heavy! I promise this is the last of their products! I'm a major gloss girl; I'll take gloss over lipstick any day of the week. Most days, I just wear lip liner with a gloss. So when I heard that the new Anastasia lip glosses had the pigmentation of a lipstick, I knew I had to have some! Again, I've heard nothing but great reviews all over YouTube, so I'm sure I won't be disappointed with the quality of these products. Here I have the colours 'Pastel Pink' and 'Orchid'. Now 'Orchid' is a recommendation from Jaclyn Hill, and whatever Jaclyn says I should buy, I buy! These retail for $16 each and can be found here.

#5- If any of you guys have ever been on YouTube, you probably know that ColourPop is one of the most hyped up brands at the moment. Just last week they came out with liquid lipsticks (as every brand is doing at the moment) which everyone is super excited about! Unfortunately, ColourPop does not ship to the UK yet, so I haven't been able to get my hands on these, or any other products of theirs. You can bet when they do start shipping here, I will be placing a huge order! These 4 lippies will be top of my list: 'Koala', 'Midi', 'Trap' and 'Zipper'. If you are lucky enough to live in a country that ColourPop do ship to, I really recommend watching this video from Young Wild and Polished as she gives full swatches of all the shades on offer! And the best part is, they are only $6 each! Wow, what a steal! This means you can get 4 for almost the price of 1 Anastasia liquid lippie, how crazy is that? I need some ColourPop in my life so fingers crossed they start shipping here soon. You can check them out here.

#6- Now the next product that I would love to add to my collection is the OCC lip tar in 'Sebastian', and I blame this entirely on Irina from TheBeautyVaultxo. A while ago she posted a tutorial on the gorgeous look that she's wearing in the picture (check her video out here) and I instantly fell in love with this lip colour. It's the most gorgeous taupe- pink colour I've ever seen. I already have an OCC lip tar and I absolutely love the formula, so I know this will definitely be a winner for me. All OCC lip tars retail for $18, and you can get them off of the OCC website here (Sephora have a very limited colour range).

#8- Becca Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector in the colour 'Moonstone'... need I say more? I need this product really just to see whether the hype is real. This has to be one of THE most talked about products that's available on the market right now. People say that it's similar to the Mary Lou- Manizer by theBalm which I don't particularly enjoy. The highlighter itself is good quality, but I have fairly bad skin and it just magnifies my imperfections. I'm afraid that this will do the same, but you can't knock it 'til you've tried it, right? I may get 'Moonstone', but if the Jaclyn Hill collab colour 'Champagne Pop' is still around by the time I place my order, I may just go for that. I trust Jaclyn enough to spend my money on a product she's created. And to spend $38 on a highlighter, it better be good! You can check all of the Shimmering Skin Perfectors out here.

#9- Next up is one of Sephora's best selling products and one of the most celebrated foundations on the market: the Make Up Forever HD foundation. I have never seen a bad review for this. Most people name this as one of their holy grail foundations. One of the most important features of makeup for me is having a flawless base- this probably stems from the fact that I don't have great skin. So I'm always up for giving a full coverage foundation a try! At the moment, I'm loving the Estee Lauder Double Wear, so I'm intrigued to see whether this can pip it to the post of being my number one foundation. There are also 25 shades available on the Sephora website, so you can be almost sure that there's the perfect shade for you available! This retails for $43 and is available from the Sephora website here.

#10- Lastly on my list (phew!) is a skin care product which, again, is really hyped up on YouTube. This is, of course, the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment! As I've said, I struggle with acne and bad texture in my skin, so I'm constantly on the hunt for products to help me deal with this. I've wanted this for so long! I recently found it in a shop nearby, so you can bet when the next payday comes around, I'll be grabbing a pot of this and telling you guys whether the hype is real! For $69 it better be good! You can purchase it from the Sephora website here.

And there we go folks! Of course, there are still more products I'd love to try, so I may do another wishlist soon! Let me know if that's something that you'd be interested in! Hopefully I will have my haul up soon so you guys can see what I've been binge spending on! I'm also going to be starting a series where I recreate looks that I've seen on YouTube and tell you guys what I think of them and how easy they were to recreate. In the meantime, I'm on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram so make sure you go over and check them out!

Love you guys,
Starrzbeauty xoxo
