1. Laura Mercier Artist Palette for Eyes Spring 2014 // 2. NARS Matte Multiple in Exumas // 3. Tarte Be Mattenificent Palette // 4. Anastasia Dip Brow // 5. Givenchy Ombre Couture in Rose Illusion
March already! Where does the time go? Usually I struggle to make a monthly wishlist that consists solely of beauty products but, this month, I have my eye on an insane amount of stuff! It's also my birthday month so, with any luck, some of the below will become a reality!
You all know by now how much I love the Laura Mercier Artist Palette that came out toward the end of last year. Now, ever since seeing the spring 2014 incarnation on Temptalia, it's all I can think of. It's a gorgeous mix of neutrals, spring pastels and smokey shades - that bright navy blue in the top left has stolen my heart! No word yet of if and when it might land here but, I have my eyes peeled.
Matte is my jam and when the new NARS Matte Multiples were brought to my attention, I said "I'll take one of each please." Sadly, I'm not rich so, I'll probably just settle for one. Initially, my heart was set on Altai, promised to be a nude rose, but when swatches showed it as more of an orange-brown, I turned my attentions to Exumas, a beautiful true coral.
Speaking of mattes, another eyeshadow palette is on my list and this time from Tarte. In case you have been living under a rock, Sephora US now delivers to the UK so, with a bit of Parcel Motel action, brands like Tarte, Lorac, Kat Von D etc are now a reality for us. The Tarte Be Mattenificent Palette is a mix of matte shadows, a matte blush and two matte cake eyeliners that double as eyeshadows. It's absolute perfection and I can't wait to make a Sephora order.
Maintaining my brows has become my new favourite hobby and the Anastasia Dip Brow is top of my list of things to try. It's always sold out on Cult Beauty but, now with this Sephora jiggery pokey, I can order it from there. From what I have heard, it far outshines my beloved Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow so, we'll see!
Givenchy is not a brand that I have ever been interested in. However, after seeing the Givenchy Ombre Couture cream shadows, I'm intrigued. These babies promise up to 16 hours of waterproof wear and dusky pink shade, Rose Illusion, seems like it would be the perfect accompaniment to any neutral eye. And, at £18, I don't think it's overpriced despite the Givenchy name.
Any beauty bits you've got your eye on this month?
