What's on your beauty wish list right now?

It seems that almost every brand is having new releases lately! And, as an admitted beauty junkie, I want to try them all! Now I acknowledge that's not realistic both from a practical and a financial standpoint. But here are just a few of the items towards the top of my shopping list.

  • The Burt's Bees Lip Crayon looks beautiful! It is currently offered in six shades - Sedona Sands (light neutral pink), Redwood Forest (red-berry), Niagara Overlook (medium warm pink), Carolina Coast (bubble-gum pink), Hawaiian Smolder (raspberry pink), and Nape Vineyard (red wine). These look quite handy to carry and travel with. Liquid lipglosses can be a hassle through the TSA line. Personally, I would probably lean towards the Niagara or Hawaiian, but might choose differently once I see the colors in person.
  • The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil line looks fabulous as well. They are currently offering a body butter, a shower gel, a solid oil for body and hair, a body lotion, a body scrub, a body oil, a bubble bath, a solid oil for lips, and a massage soap. That's quite an extensive line! I haven't had the opportunity to see the products in person, so I'm not sure of the fragrance. But I would love to try both the solid oil for lips (since I can never own enough lipbalm) as well as the body butter. Even in the midst of a humid Texas summer, my skin can still be dry.
  • The Bare Escentuals line is well-known to almost everyone, mostly for their loose mineral foundation. They have recently launched their bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20. It comes in about a hundred shades, okay maybe closer to twenty. I do have a couple of samples at home but I'm not sure how to test them. The only directions I can find for the product are to use a specially designed brush. I acknowledge that that is probably the best method for the full-size product however I am not looking to purchase a specific brush just to test the shade and the product. I suppose I can just use a makeup sponge, but we shall see how that turns out. So for now, this is still on my wish list because I haven't tried it yet!

These are just a few of the products I have been eyeing. What have you noticed that you are eager to dip your fingers into?
