Beauty Wish List 02.

bare minerals complexion rescue, nars satin lip pencil, origins drink up mask, benefit roller lash NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Palais Royal– I have the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in the color Dragon Girl and it was my go-to red for a while. I’ve only tried that one color from the line, but I do find the matte pencil a little bit drying. I’ve always wanted to try the Satin version and this deep berry color looks really pretty online.

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue– This has been popping up everywhere lately, so naturally I became curious. I don’t really wear foundation or anything at the moment, but I’ve been thinking about getting a lightweight base for days when I want to look a little more polished. I want something that looks natural and feels like you’re barely wearing anything. I haven’t tried any products from Bare Minerals before, but I’ve heard good things about the brand. Kim also did a review on this recently. When I saw how glowy and great her skin looked, this product moved a few spots up on my wish list.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask– For the past couple of weeks, I’ve incorporated a face mask into my weekly Sunday routine. My skin continues to suffer from the winter weather, so I’ve been trying to be better about moisturizing daily. Ashley tweeted about this Origins mask a little while ago and she said it’s been saving her skin. With a rave review like that, I knew I had to add it to the list.

Benefit Roller Lash– This is another product that’s all over place- I guess you can tell that I can get sucked into the hype. However, I really like Benefit’s They’re Real and I trust them when it comes to mascara. People are saying that Roller Lash is just as good. Mascara has become the one product I always put on before I’m heading out the door (well, usually that and a bit of eyeliner). So far I’ve mostly dabbled in drugstore mascaras (Maybelline is my go-to brand), but if this is as good as people are saying, I might be willing to splurge.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products!

  • I’ve tried pretty much all origins masks and they are awesome. So is the nars lip pencil.


    • Good to know! I think a trip to Sephora is in the works for me :)

    I’ve been using that Origins mask and it has been great – my skin has been so dry lately from the winter weather and it’s been working amazingly well!

    • Another rave review! I think I definitely need to pick this mask up :)

    I love face masks but I can’t recall ever using an overnight one. I’m always able to tell a difference with regular masks, so I’m sure wearing one for much longer is incredible!

    • I’ve tried a few different masks from samples, but from all that I’ve heard, this Origins one is really great.

  • Oh man, that satin pencil looks *gorgeous*. I can just imagine how creamy it goes on. I don’t know why, but I love getting pencils instead of lipsticks- it just feels so fun putting it on, haha.

    • I think pencils are easier to use and I know what you mean about being fun- it kind of feels like you’re playing dress-up :) I only wish that the NARS pencils were twist-up!

    How is the overnight mask? I have heard good things about that one!

    • I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve only heard good things (including from people here in the comments!)

  • I hadn’t heard of Roller Lash until this post! I love They’re Real, so I’ll be sure to check this out! I like the packaging! If you try it, I’d love to know what you think!

    • I’ll definitely report back if I try it! I’m hoping I can get my hands on a sample first.

  • I really want to try that bare minerals foundation, it sounds very nice!

    • Me too! I’d like to get a sample the next time I go to Sephora.

  • That origins mask sounds great – I have one from Clinique, the overnight one that sounds similar.

    • Good to know about the Clinique one in case I need an alternative!

  • I’m curious about the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. I may give it a try when I finish up the tinted moisturizer I’m currently using. Benefit’s mascara’s are definitely a fave though I haven’t tried the roller lash yet.

    • I’ve heard so many comments about the Complexion Rescue being really hydrating, which exactly what my dry skin needs in the winter. I saw that they had a couple darker shades, so I’d like to pick up a sample the next time I’m in Sephora.
