April Wishlist

This month I've decided to actually make a realistic wishlist! While my previous lists haven't been full of mental Tom Ford/SUQQU/Sisley high end items they just werent really realistic for me, so this month Ive created a list with items that I actually have a chance of owning within the month!

1. Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge- Ive been in two minds about blending sponges but have recently decided that I really would like one in my life and this is meant to be just as good as the Beauty Blender but for quite a few pounds less! My face isnt really particularly small but I do find brushes can be a little larger than Id like on my cheeks so the pointed end of the sponge seems perfect, and the fact that you can use all sides would make it a great multitasker.

2. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Deep- I've been through a few bronzers recently and despite washing my brush after each use I still seem to get very blemishy along my contour lines. My usual Mac MSF in Light Medium isnt my favourite powder at the moment but the forumula has never given me any trouble so I thought Id try a darker MSF as a bronzer in the hope of not causing my skin more grief.

3. Lauren's Way Bronzing Lotion in Darker than Dark- This is one of my all time favourites and Im not too sure why I havent written a post on it yet. It gives a lovely deep colour and doesnt wear off too unevenly to leave me looking like some sort of scaly lizard as some do!

4. Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner Pencils in Black & Flash- You can never have too many black eyeliners and my favourite of the moment has gone a bit hard and waxy on me so Im looking for another. These are meant to stay put even in the waterline which is perfect as I tend to go for waterproof pencils for their staying ability. Im also after a nice long wearing flesh coloured pencil for my waterline so am looking to see how the Flash colour performs (I wonder if thats a mispelling of 'Flesh' that caught on).

5. MUA Matte Perfect Primer- I took a look at the MUA website the other day and have gone a bit lust mad for all their products! This primer is meant to be very similar to Benefit's Porefessional with its silicone texture and skin tone colour. Im really looking for something for the centre of my face- across my nose and the middle of my cheeks, as my foundation always sinks into my pores quickly and needs reblending much more often than it should.

6 & 9. Barry M Dazzle Dust in Bronze and Gold Iridescent- Ive got a Dazzle Dust pot in Tan which is a nice pinky colour but not one I wear very often so more of a brown colour would be perfect. Im also looking for something shiny for my inner eye corners thats a bit less pink than what Im using at the moment so the Gold Iridescent would hopefully be the perfect thing.

7 & 8. MUA E3 Blending Brush and F2 Stippling Brush- Its always handy to have another blending brush when putting eyeshadow on and this little cheapy is meant to be pretty good, Im also looking for a smaller stippling brush for blush and to fit in my make up bag so hopefully this will do the job.

9. MUA Highlighting Powder- I can't say it wasnt partly the gorgeous pattern of the pressed powder that drew me to this product but Ive hit my pan on my Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow and feel like I want to try a powder as a bit of a change.

10. MUA Power Pout in Irreplaceable- It seems like lots of brands are bringing out Cilinique Chubby Stick style lip products at the moment, but for £3 I cant really sniff at MUA's offering- reviewed as just the right miz of lipstick and balm, the Power Pouts sound like just my kind of product as my Revlon Strawberry Shortcake lip butter is coming to the end and I love a pinky lip.

11. MUA Undress Me Too Palette- Im really town between this palette, the Undress Me palette and the Heaven and Earth Palette. They all have a good mixture of shimmery and matte neutral tones similar to UD's Naked and Naked 2 and are pretty pigmented which is great for the price and I find some of the cheaper shimmery eyeshadows tend to look a bit samey as they dont have much colour.

12. MUA Out There Plumping Lip Gloss in bascially every colour (told you Id gone MUA mad!)- My friend has a few of these and they look so gorgous, not so big on the plumping but very pigmented and not sticky which is one of my biggest hates in lipglosses. At the moment theyre on offer for £1, so seeing as theyre half price I can have twice as many right?

Whats on your April wishlist?
