Things I want to try :)

Hello everyone!
So I have been trying to keep track of things I want to try and the list just keeps on growing.. I figured I would blog about it and hopefully get some feed back and see what you guys like the most!! My birthday is coming up soon too so thought this could also double as a wish list! Again any feedback on these products or any others would be amazing :)


 The first product I want to try is a Chanel "Joues Contraste Powder Blush" in the shade "70 Tumulte". Lisa Eldrige ( famous makeup artist and you tuber) swears by Chanel blushes and I just want to give them a shot. I wonder if the $43.00 price tag will be worth it. It is a gorgeous color though..


The second product I want to try is the Dior Eyeshadow "5 Couleurs Palette". I do not have a specific palette to try but I am thinking something more on the wearable side such as the one above called "Earth Reflection". The eye shadows are super pigmented ( I have gone to the counters and swatched many times) but I am wondering if they are anything special.. I love my Urban Decay, Mac, MUD, Smashbox and Laura Mercier Eye Shadows that I have in my kit and I just get so curious on how these differ or if they are better or worse... Hmmm so tempting. These 5 color palettes are $60.00. BUT you are getting 5 shadows which averages out to $12.00 each..
 Okay this Chanel "Soleil Tan De Chanel" bronzer seems to be a staple in a lot of makeup artist's personal and professional kit. I believe it is a cream/gel bronzer which I am assuming feels like applying a whipped foundation. I have heard that it is super easy to blend and gives a beautiful natural glow to the skin. I am very fair and I love finding natural bronzers that will give me a glow with out over powering my face.. This I will definitely try soon. This product is $48.00.
 It may seem like I am on a Chanel kick but this is only because I have never used anything from this brand and it seems like once artists put this in their kit it never comes out... This foundation seems pretty great. It is called "Perfection Lumiere" It is a medium coverage foundation that still leaves a healthy glow to the skin. It looks really natural and it must photograph well because a lot of celebrities use this on the red carpet ( or the Vitalumiere Aqua). Yes it does have SPF in it and I would not normally use any SPF when I know my clients will be photographed but I know some ingredients that make up SPF flashback more than others so I will have to do some more research.. Overall this foundation will have to battle to the death with Georgio Armani Luminous Silk because these are the two high end foundations I have been craving to try. This costs $55.00 and I will be VERY curious if it is worth the steep price tag.
I do not usually buy lip stick palettes already made ( besides the Bite holiday palette) because I like to combine colors to create my own palettes. But in this case, the six shades in this MAC Palette seem really pretty and wearable. The shades are "Pretty Please" (top left) ", Creme De Fa Femme" (middle left), "Show Orchid" (bottom left), "Lovelorn" (top right), "Please Me" (middle right) and "Violetta" (bottom right). Obviously "Show Orchid" and "Violetta" are vivid bright colors so they might not be the most wearable colors on there own but with a little mixing action I feel like I can make them work!! The price for this palette is $40.00 and $24.00 with the pro discount. I believe MAC does at least 4 or 5 of these in different color families.

So after reviewing the products I just discussed I just realized that I basically have a whole face of makeup I want to try! A blush, eye shadows, foundation, bronzer, and a lip palette.. I feel obligated to throw out a mascara and eye liner now too... I want to try Diorshow mascara and Bobbi Brown gel liner... now we are complete :)

 Well let me know if you have tried any of these products and share your thoughts!!!! Comment below and let me know one of your holy grail products!!  (a product you can not live with out).

Blurbs: 
*Seth and I had a lovely date yesterday. He treated me to a pedicure (which I desperately needed) and then we went to Atlantic Station and shopped and had dinner!

*I came up with 5 new makeup looks I want to film and post on you tube! I know I know I have not made one in a while.. BUT I wanted to wait on a new camera and I finally have it!

* I am watching The Shawshank Redemption right now and I always forget how good this movie is until it hooks me in.

Okay well I hope you all have a great day!!

I hope this was helpful :)
