I very easily get stuck in a makeup rut, I sometimes find myself being drawn to the same brands and products just out of habit. I’m determined to try some new looks this year and want to broaden my makeup horizons. I’ve picked some brands that I really want to try out below, some seasoned makeup pros might gasp that I’ve never tried some of these!
NARS – Yes I know, I know I’ve never tried NARS! They’re well renowned for their blushes and eye palettes. So I’m thinking of adding a NARS blush to my collection this year. I really like the look of the multiple sticks as well as the eye shadow palettes.
Tarte – I can be excused a bit more for not trying Tarte as the brand isn’t readily available here. The standout product from Tarte seems to be their Amazonian Clay Blushers, I’ve seen so many bloggers rave about these I really want to give them a try. My dad is off to the states in March so I may have to give him a complicated task!
NYX - Some NYX counters landed in Ireland in 2014 so the products are more common here. The NYX butter glosses get really good reviews so I have no excuse for not having one of these in my makeup stash.
Charlotte Tilbury – When Charlotte Tilbury’s collection arrived in Ireland last year there was much squealing among us beauty bloggers. Her range is really beautiful, if you haven’t had a chance to visit the counter in Brown Thomas I highly recommend it. My trouble is I can’t decide what I want but I will pick something this year!
theBalm - I’ve added products from theBalm to my virtual basket a few times but never quite made the order. There are some lovely highlighters and blushes in the range but I think I’d have to try out the famous Mary Loumaniser highlighter or the Frat Boy Blusher.
So there you have my makeup brand wishlist for 2015. I will be using this as an excuse for completely unnecessary spending this year. Are there any classic makeup brands you haven’t tried yet?
