Five Things: Makeup I REALLY Want to Buy But Can’t Justify

Every Friday we’ll pick a theme and then five things (hence the name! We’re so original!!!!!) that fit that theme. Feel free to make your own choices in the comments, or send them to us on Twitter. This week Mel’s Taking over and talking about the makeup I reaaaaaally want to buy but just can’t justify spending the money on for one reason or another.

Wet N Wild Mermaid Highlighter

I want this SO bad but I just can’t get it. Yes it’s cheep but as pretty as it is I just won’t wear it. I mean I can lie to myself and say “Oh I totally would”. Sadly though it’s just not in my color palette.

Any Viseart Palette

These suckers are amazing quality, and I swatch them every time I go into a Sephora that has them. The thing that’s holding me back is the $80 price tag. I just can’t pay that much for something when I have things that work just fine at home. Maybe if I use up everything I have shadow wise I can save up for these….

Perversion Mascara

This is SUCH a good mascara. I hoard the samples when I’m lucky enough to get them. Sadly I can’t justify buying this bc it doesn’t hold up on my lower lashes. I don’t mind paying 20+ for a mascara if I can use it on both top and bottom lashes but can’t when I’d have to go in with a water proof one after. Whomp whomp.

Tattoo Junkee Kits

Ok so my friends who’ve gotten these rave about them. The formula for the liquid lip is great. It has awesome staying power. What holding me back is I have things to do this type of effect already. I have the liquid lips I love and I have the cosmetic grade glitters. It would be redundant to get. Ugh being responsible is cutting into my glitter collection.

GALifornia Blush

I think this one is the hardest for me. Listen, I am child of the 80’s and blush will always be VITAL for me. I would use this a ton AND I don’t have anything like it. It’s not over prices and it also smells amazing. The thing with this is, I have enough blush. I have a decent range of colors and finishes and this just isn’t needed. Blah. Maybe when I finish a blush (HA!) I can replace with this one. Until then I will look at this longingly from afar.

Do you have anything (doesn’t have to be makeup!) that you long o buy but can’t justify? Let us know in the comments below!
