5 Brands On My Wishlist

Does anyone else feel like their wishlist is just forever getting longer and longer? There are a few brands and products that have been on my mind for a couple of months now that I am just dying to try but still haven’t got around to it! So I thought I would share with you just a few of them with a mixture between makeup and skincare…


Mario Badescu

I’ve literally been seeing this brand all over social media and blogs lately and I am dying to try some products from what I have heard. I have my eye on the Drying Lotion (of course), Facial Spray with Aloe Herbs and Rose Water, Glycolic Acid Toner and also some of the Seaweed range which I have heard is great for oily/combination skin. After hearing everyone talking about these products I was so surprised to see how affordable some of them are and what a wide range of products I have been missing out on. I just really hope they’re as good as everyone says! These are available from BeautyBay.



I know I’m a bit late to the game on this one but I still haven’t got around to trying this brand either! I’m forever checking Cult Beauty’s website to read some reviews and check what I have my eye on is still in stock but I’m yet to click ‘add to bag’. Everyone has been raving about Pixi’s Glow Tonic for months now and I definitely want to give that a try along with the Rose Oil Blend and the new Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.


The Body Shop

Now obviously I have tried The Body Shop and some of their products but I haven’t tried many different skincare bits. I did a post a while back on the Purifying Glow Himalayan Charcoal Mask which if you want, you can read here. I still haven’t purchased the full size version of this mask but I would also like to try some of their other masks along with the chamomile cleansing oil and Drops of Light Liquid Peel. I’ve heard some great things about these products and The Body Shop usually pulls through!



For soooo long have I wanted to try the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I’ve only recently purchased the Urban Decay Naked Concealer though which also took my ages to get around to trying, so who knows how long it will be still before I try the Nars concealer. How many of you have tried it and loved it? Also from Nars I really love the look of the Velvet Lip Glides especially in the shade Bound! Nars products can be picked up at Feel Unique



I feel like Stila is forever coming out with new and amazing products. I have wanted to try a couple of their liquid lipsticks for a while now along with the eyeshadow palette Eyes Are The Window in ‘Soul’.Everything from Stila looks stunning and hopefully one of these days I will be able to tick them off my wishlist! They have also this week announced that they are now 100% cruelty free which is amazing. Stila can also be picked up at BeautyBay.

Have any of you tried any of these products and have any thoughts on them or recommendations on others from the same brand? I would love to hear them in the comments!

      That sounds good! I haven’t looked at the masks but I’ve heard great things about some of the other products x

    Can my wishlist include all of the makeup and skincare?? Probably not realistic haha. I just purchased the Pixi Glow Tonic because it’s been on my wishlist for what feels like forever!

      Haha that’s pretty much how I feel tbf! Can’t believe I narrowed it down to just 5 Brands! Oooh how are you finding it?

    Mario Badescu products are so amazing, you should definitely check them out! Also, the Nars Concealer is amazing too but just so expensive unfortunately. Personally, Charlotte Tilbury and MUG are at the top of my brands wish list. Great post 🙂

      I really want to, especially the drying lotion as I keep having tiny breakouts in the same area of my face! Yeah that’s the only thing that stops me trying some Nars products, I really want to try Charlotte Tilbury too but they’re also really expensive! Thank you! 🙂

    Mario Badescu is my favorite! Have their facial spray on my “shop my favorites” page!

    My wishlist is forever getting longer! I’m forever seeing new things and adding them to the list, and it’s getting totally out of control. I have the body shop masks and I’d really recommend the Rose facial mask – it’s amazing for a morning routine!

      Mine too! I’ve been wanting some new skincare for so long and there’s so many different products I want to try but I always end up getting new makeup instead by accident! Ooh what is it good for? I love the look of all of them, and I loved the charcoal one so much. Thanks Taylor xx

Yes I’m dying to try Pixi, feels like they’ve been on my Wishlist forever! And your Instagram and blog has definitely made me want the glow tonic even more! Thank you so much! x
