I have said it a million times, I’m a beauty junkie. However, I do have a limit and there are some items I just leave to a luxury beauty gift wish list. Now what seems luxury to me, may be everyday for some. But that’s ok. This year there have been some beauty items tugging at my wallet, but I just can’t seem to follow through with the purchase.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC CREAM MOISTURIZER WITH HYALURONIC ACID
**This claims to be age defying, plumps the skin, and provides a glowing complexion amongst other things. 1.0oz priced at $64.00. I’m pretty sure this is an amazing moisturizer, but there are many others that can provide the same benefits or better. But with the pretty packaging it will look good on any vanity. So I’ll just leave it on my wish list.
GUCCI ROUGE A LEVRES VOILE + BALM HOLIDAY LIP gift SET-$90
For $90 I can get 3 lipsticks in 3 different shades. One sheer, matte, and a balm finish. I know this will make my lips soft and have great color pay off. However, I almost never finish a lipstick because I try so many. So I just can’t pay the price for it. I’m pretty sure they are lovely.
TOM FORD ILLUMINATE BLUSH DUO $90
skin perfecting blush and highlighter duo. First of all I don’t even wear makeup everyday. When I do, its just brow gel, mascara, and Carmex. I’ll apply a mattifying primer to keep the oil at bay. So to spend this on a blush or highlighter that won’t get used I’m going to leave it on my wish list.
BOBBI BROWN INTENSIVE SERUM FOUNDATION WITH SPF 40 $72
I’m almost positive that this foundation is amazing. It claims to have long lasting skin benefits that helps overtime. I know for sure I’d be able to find my perfect shade. But, I’ve thrown away many foundations over the years due to me having so many and some not getting used as often.
LA MER POWDER BRUSH $90
I am a sucker for anything with pretty packaging or handle. I just want to know will this brush make my powder do something magical? There are some amazing affordable makeup brushes that has stood the test of time.
These are just a couple of beauty items that continually caught my eye. But due to my minimal lifestyle, me trying to be financially responsible, and less wasteful I just can’t make the purchase. HOLIDAY 2021: 3 SIMPLE SELF CARE TIPS Now if this was me, 5 years ago, then absolutely I would have to have them all. But I know I can achieve the same look and get the same results with other products.
