Wish List Wednesday

Recently I've found myself wanting quite a few things.  These things are definitely wants and not really needs (except maybe one of them) at the moment so I decided to put them all together in a Wish List to share with all of you.  They are all fashion or beauty finds that I've either tried and want more of or have heard rave reviews about.  Below I have twelve items I'm currently craving!

This mask is one of the most amazing beauty products I have ever used.  I've always struggled with blackheads and this is the only thing that has literally made every single blackhead on my face disappear.  It works as a vacuum to clean out your pores and uses a proprietary six acid blend to brighten and soften skin.  The only bad thing I would say about this is that it is drying, especially for my super dry skin, so I can only use it every few weeks as a full face mask (it can also be used as a spot treatment).  I ran out of this about a month ago and am dying to get another jar!

I am trying to get better with makeup, especially face makeup like foundation and contouring.  I have heard so many rave reviews about this sponge and am dying to try it!  It can be used with all complexion makeup and works so well that it has garnered a cult following.

This is another product that I cannot wait to try.  I love Jaclyn Hill and her highlight is always on point so I know this must be amazing.  In addition to loving the way it looks on Jaclyn I have heard great things about it from other bloggers and beauty magazines.  It also ignited a craze when it was released and was sold out for such a long time, which makes me want to try it even more!

If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I am a major skin care product junkie.  I have read reviews on this product from bloggers, beauty websites, and different magazines and they all give it rave reviews.  Luna is "a next-generation retinoid oil that improves skin plumpness and helps fight the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for visibly clearer, younger-looking skin."  I actually tried a sample of this on Monday night and woke up to seriously glowy skin so between that and all the great things I've heard I really want to purchase a full size bottle of this.

This is another item from Sunday Riley, which is a high performance skincare brand that focuses on fast results and long term payoff.  I've been looking for a very moisturizing night cream for the upcoming colder months because my already dry skin get even drier in the winter.  I was looking on Sephora's website and this caught my eye, later that night I remembered that I had a sample of it so I gave it a try.  This cream seriously moisturized my skin and when I woke up the next day I felt like my skin was glowing.  This cream works to brighten, hydrate, plump, and smooth skin, and moisturizes for twenty four hours.  I saw such great results after one night of use that I can't wait to see how amazing the long term results are.

In my opinion this is one of the best lip balms available.  It is super moisturizing and keeps your lips hydrated, even during the winter months.  It uses sugar, meadowfoam, and black currant seed oil to moisturize and antioxidant-rich vitamins to defend against damaging free radicals.  Moreover, it contains SPF to protect your lips from harmful UV rays.  It also smells delicious and comes in a variety of different tints that look gorgeous on!

I have been using micellar water for about a year now to wash my face in the mornings and am totally hooked on it.  A few weeks ago I got a deluxe size sample of this from Sephora and have been using it ever since.  It is super gentle and does a great job of cleaning my skin without drying it out.  I actually like this better then the micellar water I've been using for almost a year and really want to get a full size bottle of it.

8. iPhone 7 Plus Case
I recently ordered the iPhone 7 Plus and am waiting for it to come in (it was on backorder).  I decided to get the Plus this time around because I land up doing a lot of work things for my blog on my phone and thought that it would make it easier with a bigger screen.  I always have to have a case on my phone (which makes this the one thing on the list I absolutely need) so right now I am looking for the perfect one.  The one thing that is kind of a pain though is that I'm finding it's harder to find Plus cases and a lot of them aren't being released until mid October (which is when my phone should be here).  I'm loving this case, but I think I am going to wait and get a case from Casetify.

Mascara is my favorite makeup item and the one product I cannot live without.  My eyelashes are the same color as my hair so without mascara they're practically invisible.  I am super lucky to have naturally long and thick lashes (people always think they're fake), but I need mascara to darken them so you can really see them.  Last week my best friend sent me this article about this mascara.  It is supposed to be so good that Sephora can't keep it in stock.  Also the gorgeous Olivia Palermo (one of my fashion icons) uses it, which means I just have to give it a try!

10. Cozy Sweaters
It is officially sweater weather and I could not be happier!  Fall is my favorite time of year and there is nothing better then leggings or jeans, boots, and an oversized cozy sweater on a beautiful fall day.  I'm really liking this sweater right now, but am always on the hunt for others too.  I like to purchase at least one sweater for fall/winter (but let's be honest I land up buying way more than that) and will share with all of you when I get one!

I talked about these boots in this post from last week and just cannot get enough of them!  I have been wanting a pair of over the knee boots for such a long time now and these are exactly what I've been looking for.  I fell in love when I saw this pair in a post on I do deClaire.  Everything from the style to the color is perfect and I know they will go with just about everything.  My favorite part though is that they are a dupe for this much pricier pair that I've been wanting since last year and are an amazing deal at $149.95.  I think I am actually going to land up ordering these later today!

This also happened to make it into the same post from last week as the boots above.  This is the one item on the list that will forever be on a wish list because it is way, way, way out of my price range.  I love leather jackets and blush pink is my favorite color, which makes this a dream piece for me!  Unfortunately I will just have to settle for lusting over this beauty and search for a less expensive dupe for it.

What is on your wish list right now?

  5. Great wish list! You SO need to try a Beauty Blender-- I recently wrote a post on why I made the switch to a blender, along with a few tips on how to use and clean it. It will seriously change your makeup game. Champagne Pop is also a must-- it is GORGEOUS! A little goes a long way but your highlight will for sure be popping. :P

  6. The Sugar lips are so so awesome! I love them and they are such a little treat!

  7. You NEED the beauty blender. Mine is my life. Just remember to clean it regularly as it works best completely clean.

  9. I recently discovered an amazing trick for the beauty blender – soak it slightly in running water, wring out and then use. The application is much more even and smooth!

  10. Ok, YES to that blush colored jacket and the sugar lip balm is awesome! I use it all the time!

  13. A wooden phone case can surprisingly enhance your network connectivity experience. Wood is a natural material known for its ability to absorb and dissipate electromagnetic interference, which can interfere with signal reception. By using a iphone 15 pro wood phone case, you create a barrier that helps shield your device from external electromagnetic interference, leading to potentially clearer reception and fewer network issues. Additionally, the unique properties of wood may help to prevent overheating of your phone, which can sometimes impact network performance.
