10 beauty brands I need to try
I've been pretty active on Instagram lately (you can find me here) and I find myself saying "I really need to try XYZ" time and time again. In fact, I've created a little hitlist, if you will, of brands I need to try in the next year.
Yeah, this is pretty bad, right? For one reason or another, I've just never tried anything from Chanel. I have my eyes on one of the powder blushes- Orchid Rose, perhaps?
Strictly speaking, I have already tried Dior. I bought a really cheap Dior lipstick from some dodgy site and wrote a terrible review of it in which I praised how much I loved it when, really, I was completely underwhelmed. I think this is what put me off trying other Dior products for so long. For a while now, I've been intending to try one of the Diorskin foundations, and I'm also really interested in the mascaras. I just can't decide which one to go for!
I wouldn't be fussed about trying anything from Estée Lauder if it wasn't for one thing: Double Wear Foundation. Everybody is obsessed with it and I can't possibly let that slip without seeing if it's worth the hype for myself, can I? Once I've finished my NARS. And my Anna Sui. And tried the Diorskin I mentioned above. And Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. And NARS Sheer Glow...
It feels criminal that I haven't tried anything from Illamasqua yet as I know how popular this brand is. When looking for a new primer recently, one of the products I considered was Illamasqua's Hydra Veil, and it's still on my list of primers to try.
As far as I can tell, Ladurée make up is only available in France, which is a shame, but I am planning to visit Paris at Christmas so... The packaging is beyond beautiful so I pretty much want all of it. Top of my list are the blushers shaped like rose petals and cameo brooches.
Another primer I considered was Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer Hydrating which is supposed to be amazing for dry skin. Another one I'll be trying out before the year is up!
I'm a big fan of Marc Jacobs fragrances, so I was super excited when I found out that Marc Jacobs make up was being released in the UK. As a lip balm addict, I'm desperate to try this Lock Lips Moisture Balm and I might also add the Coconut Face Primer to my neverending list.
As I get older, and notice more wrinkles creeping into my face, I'm looking more and more towards skincare. Sunday Riley has had such a phenomenal response from beauty bloggers that I'm really eager to try it. I've been recommended the Sleeping Night Oil so that's where I intend to start.
All of the other brands on this list are high end, so it's about time I featured something more affordable. I've been meaning to try Tony Moly's adorable products for the longest time! Everything is so cute but I think my favourite is the Panda Dream Brightening Eye Base. Who doesn't want to carry a panda around in their pocket? Exactly!
Like Dior, I have already tried something from Too Faced. The Perfect Flush Blush is one of my favourite powder blushes (awful review here) so I really want to try the Love Flush Blush... and not just because it looks like a Polly Pocket! I also need to see if the Better Than Sex mascara is worth the hype as well as adding Born This Way foundation to my now seven-strong list. Oops!
Are there any brands I'm missing out that I may not have tried already? Leave me your brand and product recommendations in the comments... because I haven't got enough to try as it is!
