Make up and beauty,  Make up brushes,  Wishlist

If I was a rich girl….

na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

See, I’d have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl…..

A girl can dream right? I thought I’d put together a list of items that would be in my shopping cart tomorrow if I won the lotto.

The Beauty Box

The Beauty Box 

I didn’t even know there was any other way to store make up besides a regular old make up bag. When I first saw images of the beauty box all over the internet, I did a HUGE eye roll. Like seriously people? Why so indulgent? *shakes head* How naive I was…. As my make up collection grew, and I got to a point where I’d find a blush or foundation 2 months later, not even realising it was missing, that’s when I came to see that this Beauty Box thing is kind of a must have! It’s made from acrylic and from the The Beauty Box website it says:

Our products are of the highest quality, durable and elegantly designed, individually handmade with gorgeous glass crystal handles.

Not only is it actually really functional…’s also really so pretty! When I see it in You Tube videos, I really think it just adds a touch of class to a beauty room/dresser. The 5 drawer one above retails for about R1699, but I see there are ‘build a box’ options on the website so you can start out with one or 2 drawers and grow your collection.

Glampalm Magic Wand

The Glampalm Magic Wand 

This curling wand has been on my wishlist for easily 2 years now. I had to make a tough decision 1 and a half years ago on whether to get a curling wand or a new flat iron and I decided on a flat iron. It’s a decision that still haunts me to this day. I have long hair, and honestly all I’ve dreamed about was having long wavy curls a la Kim K…..but alas, it was not to be. I’m contemplating chopping my hair off, because this Kim K hair is never materialising.

What I love most about this specific curling wand is that it’s clipless, so there’s no snagging of the hair or that awkward untangle of the curl. The Magic Wand is available here  on the Glampalm website and retails at R1999. I saw it yesterday being advertised for R1600 on 27Pinkx, which is VERY TEMPTING!

The Swamp Queen Palette

GRAV3YARDGIRL Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette

This palette is a collaboration between Tarte and Bunny from Grav3yardGirl. Bunny is no Jaclyn Hill, but I think that is what the world loves about her…. An ordinary gal (hey she’s like me???) that’s not your covergirl definition of pretty, but she owns the internet with her paranormal videos and the make up and beauty stuff in-between! I have read that she may be (is?) the highest earning YouTube vlogger at the moment. She’s super successful and you can watch her channel over here .

Anyways, back to this palette…I just LOVE the colour selection. I think it’s a great palette with everything you could need: a bronzer, highlighter, blush and then the 9 eye shadows. There’s a combination of matt and shimmer shades. With the colour selection, you could opt to go neutral, but there’s also a pop of colour if you’re feeling more daring.

I think this is a limited edition palette and you’d probably have to go to a bit of trouble to try and get your hands on 1. I was planning to try and get one when it was released on the Tarte website, but wowser, these flew. I’m still hopeful somehow it will happen for me. (Any suggestions for winning Lotto numbers right now would be appreciated).


The Naked and Naked 3 Palettes

Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ll know that Urban Decay officially opens its doors in South Africa on the 9th of July. Many beauty lovers and makeup users across South Africa have probably already started withdrawing their pensions to have available funds for all the UD goodness that will be available. I’ve already written about my desire for one of these palettes here, so I won’t bore you with my lustful words about these palettes again.


Sigma Essential Kit 

When I started following beauty blogs, all the bloggers owned at least 1 or 10 of these brushes. I fell in love…and then I saw the price tag…..

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the price tag

If only it was so easy Jessie J…..

I’ve stumbled onto many other brushes that are now on my wishlist (I’m talking about you Morphe, Kandy Kane, The Real Technique Metal Bold collection, etc), but these remain on my original dream list <3 They are Available from Sigma Beauty and locally I think you can get them online at Turquoise Studio.

Do you own any of these items? What’s on your wishlist…if you were a rich girl? *na na na na na na na*

I’m Simone, a mom of 3, a wife...obsessed with my family, makeup and books!
