One of my favorite things to do when I get a bit of free time by myself or with friends is to head to Sephora and try out products. Recently I went with a couple of friends and we had the best time trying out lipsticks, eye shadows and creams and after the laundry list I tried, these were five that made it onto my current beauty wish list.
My Beauty Wish List 1 of 6
Wishing and hoping for these lovely products.
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Succulent Pomegranate 2 of 6
I already love my YSL Glossy Stain, but this sheer candy lipstick from their line is seriously giving my tried and true favorite a run for it's money. I'm completely smitten with this in Succulent Pomegranate - such a lovely color and glides on perfectly as I have come to expect from YSL.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral 3 of 6
I tried this out when I was at Sephora the other night and after applying/wiping/applying multiple types of lip color throughout my time there, I came back at the end for one more swipe of this Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment and it was definitely my favorite product of the night. It lasted for a good long while and the color was more saturated than you would expect (I was thinking it would be more of a sheer gloss, but it was creamy and thick) and I got a ton of compliments on it. I just might have to go back for this little lovely.

Stila “In the Light” Palette 4 of 6
The perfect palette filled with colors that can be played up for a glam eye look or pared down for something more subtle. I love the matte colors and even though I'm not typically into shimmer, the shimmery colors aren't too over the top to be wearable for every day. Definitely a great little palette.

Out Of Pocket Brush Set 5 of 6
For a long time makeup brushes scared me. I know, I know...I write for a beauty blog, so how could I possibly be afraid of makeup brushes? They just intimidated me for some reason and I much preferred to use my fingers for makeup application. Finally though, I decided to put on my big girl pants and play around with brushes and I'm finding them to be a really valuable tool that I honestly should've started using ages ago. The only problem is that I'm usually putting my makeup on in the car while my husband is driving or in a parking lot before an event or outing. This brush kit would be a great to keep in the car for on-the-go makeup application. Plus, the ikat case? Perfection.

Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition Lip & Cheek Palette: A Kiss on the Cheek 6 of 6
I adore all things Sonia Kashuk. Not only is the price great, but the quality is amazing and Sonia always comes up with such great products that are completely of-the-moment. This lip and cheek palette was recommended to me by a makeup artist friend of mine and she said she swears by it. I adore 2-in-1 products so this is definitely a must-have.
