[WISHLIST] Jul 2018

Almost everyday, a brand releases a product or collaboration that is sure to tempt you into buying, even if you already have a ton of unused products on your vanity table. That’s how I feel every time I scroll Instagram, so I wanted to share some products that’s been on my wishlist for some time!

Etude House Play Color Eyes #Peach Farm

I have two of Etude House’s Play Color Eyes Palettes (Juice Bar and Cherry Blossom), and while I am frankly not a big fan of the colour payoff, I seriously love the colours in this palette. It looks a lot like Too Faced’s, but retails at a much lower price point. I was really excited when I saw this being released in Korea, but it’s still not available in local Etude House stores. I don’t know why Etude House Singapore doesn’t want to stock this, because I’ve heard from friends that they would love to buy this as well. Oh well. I’m looking to buy this in Korea, or else order online from Shopee.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

I recall first seeing this in as a PPL in Korean drama Temperature of Love, and then I really got interested in purchasing this after switching from BB creams to foundations. I actually haven’t had much problems with my current foundations (alternating between Lancome and Innisfree) but they do oxidize after a long period of time. I really want something that can last longer without me touching up with BB cushions, because I tend to spend long days outside in hot, sweltering weather.

I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews about this – any reader would like to say more about this? The only thing really stopping me from trying this foundation is its price, so I’m really considering investing in this foundation if enough people can convince me 😂

LANEIGE Water Bank Quick Hydro Pen

I’m interested in buying this more for the novelty, if anything. How cute is it to carry a pen around and scribble on your face when you need hydration?! I actually tried the tester at a local LANEIGE store – while it did feel hydrating on the areas I applied, my only question is when I might need to use it. Maybe this will come in handy when you’re living in a place with really dry weather, and your skin is cracking? The applicator is a bit small and looks more like a brush than a pen, but it’s still a very fun product concept that I want to use someday.

3CE Tattoo Lip Color

The colours are so gorgeous that I would want to bag every single shade here. Don’t they make the lips look really juicy and sweet? Okay, that did not sound quite right, but you get my point. I’ve been using MLBB shades so often these days that I’ve almost forgotten how fun it is to use popping shades like these. I think they might sell this in Sephora, but I have to check. My favourites have to be #Candy Jelly and #Yay or Nay – what’s yours?

Canmake Glow Fleur Cheeks

Friend A said she bought this and it looked really good on her, and personally, I find these blushes so pretty that I’m surprised I have resisted buying this for so long. I’ve tested some shades of this at my local pharmacy and I’m really impressed by the colour. It gives your cheeks a natural, healthy glow that you can sport even if you’re actually dying on the inside, so I’m putting this in my shopping cart and waiting for a good day to check this out.

  1. Great post! I think the Estee Lauder Double Wear is a great foundation but you just have to know how to apply it, which all depends on your skin type. I have dry skin, so I have to use a moisterizer underneath to give it more slip. I then just apply a really thin layer with my fingers. It definitely sets very matte, but the texture out of the bottle is actually quite runny. I would just work slowly with it since it can get a little cakey if it’s overdone.
