Beauty Wishlist for 2014

It's hard to believe that 2014 is just around the corner, I mean where did the year go? The beauty junkie in me is not surprisingly already thinking about all the new products I would like to try in the New Year! Here is a little break down of beauty items I am hoping to get my hands on in the near future:

1. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation - I am a drugstore foundation lover at heart, but I've recently been wanting to test the waters with higher end face products since they are said to contain better ingredients for the skin. I've been reading amazing reviews on the Double Wear foundation - it is said to be one of the best for oily skin and it apparently provides flawless coverage.

2. Stila In the Light Palette - The shades in this eye shadow palette are just my cup of tea. I like that it comes with two light shades for highlighting, browns that are perfect to use in the crease, as well as blues, pinks and a gold shade which I like to apply over the lid and on the lower lash line for that extra pop of color. A black shade is also a must to deepen any eye look, and I think it's great that they included one in this palette. Having green eyes, I think I could make good use out of all 10 shades.

3. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer - I was really close to purchasing this highlighter over the summer, but somehow managed to walk away empty handed. I think the fact that I am still thinking about it means I need it in my makeup stash. From the pictures I've seen, it provides the most beautiful healthy glow, and of course I'm a sucker for pretty packaging and The Balm products are beyond gorgeous!

4. Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment - This eye cream contains avocado, which we all know is great for maintaining youthful skin. I've never tried anything from Kiehl's but have heard that they have some of the best skin care products on the market. I am not using an eye cream at the moment but I think it's about time I start!

5. Real Techniques Duo Fiber Collection - These 3 limited edition brushes have been on my wishlist ever since they were released earlier this year. I own quite a few Real Techniques brushes and love them! I like that this set comes with a fluffy blending brush, which I am definitely in need of.

6. Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - I like using masks 1-2 times a week, and I am really intrigued by how this one can be left overnight. I've been seeing many reviews on the blogosphere about how amazing this product is, and unlike other masks that can be drying, this one is said to bring intense moisture back into the skin.

7. Nars Laguna Bronzing Powder - Now this is a bronzer I think everyone has heard of! I've been really itching to try Nars, and this product is definitely at the top of my list. Since it is on the darker side for my skin tone, I would see myself using it in the summer when I have developed a bit of a darker complexion.

8. Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara - This mascara hit the shelves earlier this year and quickly became a hit! I like that it comes with a curved brush and that it keeps the clumps away. From the before and after shots I've seen, it really lifts the lashes and provides lots of volume. I'm always on the hunt for a new mascara to try, and I think this one might just be my first makeup purchase of 2014!

What beauty products are you hoping to try in the New Year? :)


  1. You have such a nice wish list for next year girl ! I wish you the magical Merry Christmas and a Happy New year !! xx

  2. My mom wears this Estee Lauder foundation and a Lancome one - we both have oily skin and when she wears these her skin looks like velvet! I need to try them out as well because I always compliment her skin when she's wearing this foundation. You and I want similar things! Fancy foundations, Origins skincare and NARS cheek colors. I hope you have a great Christmas!

  3. Oh Nars Laguna...I'm just about to finish mine and I'm so sad about it! It really is the best. Merry Xmas x

  4. I LOVE your blog! I start following your blog now. Can you please check out my blog ; I only started last week and maybe if you like it, will you follow me? Thanx! Mieke

  5. I have to say I just tried the Clump Crusher and wasn't a huge fan, but that was mostly because the waterproof formula wasn't really waterproof and I need that. Great list though! I really want Laguna as well.

  6. Really nice wish list. To be honest I'd want everything on that list too haha! You have a really nice blog :)

  7. Great wish list, I have the Stila palette and love it! I'm sure you will too! Really enjoying reading your blog :) x

    Pink Frenzy

  9. Ouuu, where did you find the theBalm highligher?? I also want to purchase it, but I'm still going through comparing online prices! (Darn you Canada, and your inaccessibility to makeup products)
    Also want the Real Techniques Duo Fibre set!! I was at Ulta and found it there, but didn't pick it up and am regretting it immensely :(

    Anyways, Happy Holidays!

    1. I've seen it at Shoppers Drug Mart, but I know not all of them carry it... it took me a while to find one that had it! Hope you can find it! :)

  10. I've been eyeing a stila palette too (Stila In the Moment)! I have thebalm highlighter and it's really good! I think you would like it!

  11. Lovely wishlist!! :D I hope that you have a wonderful and merry Christmas! :D

  12. The Origins Drink Up Intensive mask is an absolute skin-saver, especially during the winter. It's important to use it a bit like a moisturizer - use a very small amount, unlike a normal mask!

  13. The Stila palette looks so pretty :) So glad I found this beautiful blog!
    Btw, do you want to follow each other on GFC? Let me know ;)

    Dolce & Petite

  14. Hi, I just found your blog and I love it! I'm your new follower:).

    I recently got that stila palette and the origins mask and really love them. I'm finishing up the kiehl's eye cream now and it is super moisturizing. Great wishlist, I hope the new year brings you everything!

  15. Your wishlist just expanded my wishlist! I have been eyeing some of these products for months, so its about time I make the purchase. :)

    PS: Just found your blog and think it is amazing. I love blogs that focus on product reviews!! New follower.


  16. Great wishlist! I have & love Stila's In The Light palette, it's gorgeous :)


  17. That's a great list Natalie! The Kiehl's eye cream is very good and they are generous with samples so you might want to start that way. I must admit that I didn't see much difference between it and straight avocado oil but it is more convenient that's for sure. I just must try a NARS bronzer this year too and Laguna is gorgeous! :)

  18. Mary Lou-manizer is amazing, I love love love love love it!

  19. The Estee Lauder foundation is high on my wish list too, I hear rave reviews!!

  23. You definitely need to pick up the Stila In the Light palette...the quality is truly amazing. It's legit my favorite neutral palette, more than Naked 1&2 :)
