My Birthday Wishlist | Beauty

In just a weeks time I turn 22, oh how I've been looking forward to the day where it's entirely necessary to listen and sing '22' repeatedly throughout the day. I unfortunately haven't got any plans for my birthday cos, you know, work n' all. Stocktake day happens to fall on my birthday too. Is that just bad luck or planned? wahh. The joys of working in retail. However, I have a week off after so maybe that's not so bad after all. A week of pure bliss, or maybe not, when I have a cheeky little one year old to take care of.

This year I feel like I haven't got that much on my list for my birthday, or those that I do really want are just not available in the UK, yet. Can we please get a Sephora here now already? With that aside, let's get down to the nitty gritty. What's on my birthday wishlist this year?
Birthday Wishlist
The first thing that I reeeaally want need in my life right now is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Series Cream Contour Kit in Fair. I've had it on my wishlist for what seems like forever but never purchased it because if I'm honest, the thought of using a cream contour scares me. I'm so used to using powder. However, this palette has the most perfect shades for my skintone which I love. 

It wouldn't be a birthday wishlist without Charlotte Tilbury would it? The new Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in 'Between the Sheets' caught my eye ever since it's release. It is such a pretty rosey-pink shade. It's so me. I've never tried any of the CT lipsticks so it would be a welcome addition to my ever growing lipstick collection. 

I used to have a Beauty Blender over a year ago which I received in my birchbox, but unfortunately I just never used it and passed it onto my sister. Oh how I regret that now. I feel like it would work so much better to blend in my foundation than my current blending brush. It can be seen as a little expensive for what is essentially a sponge but I need to achieve that flawless skin look.

For the love of makeup I cannot remember where I first seen the new Zoeva Rose Gold Vol 3 Brushes but it was love at first sight for me. I am yet to purchase the Vol 1 brushes but oh my, these look even dreamier. 

An eyeshadow palette that I've been lusting over since it's release is the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon Palette. I have the original chocolate palette and I adore it but this particular palette is what my dreams are made of. It is all kinds of pretty with it's pink packaging, heart shaped eyeshadow pans and beautiful range of matte and shimmer shades. 

The only skincare product on my wishlist is the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. Again, it's one that I have been wanting for so long. It smells absolutely divine and I feel like it would be the perfect mask to use when my skin is looking and feeling lacklustre and dehydrated.

You know how much I love my highlight so of course the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Gleam had to be added onto my wishlist. I am aware that it's not available in the UK as of yet but the amount of youtube videos I've watched with this particular palette in is seriously insane. It makes me want it even more now that it's not available in the UK.

Lastly is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden. I tried a few samples of this primer potion which came with my Naked Palettes and I absolutely loved it. My eyeshadow always stayed intact for hours, plus it did a fab job of covering up any veins and discolouration I had.

Is it your birthday coming up? What's on your wishlist?
