Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I shared a wishlist. Or a haul. Or anything that isn’t a review! I’m changing things up this week with a Summer Beauty Wishlist for 2019. There have been so many releases lately that I’ve been wistfully adding and removing from my shopping cart and I’d love to take five minutes to share them with you. If you want to see what’s on my 2019 Summer Beauty Wishlist keep reading!
I don’t have any skincare on my Summer Beauty wish list for once, just makeup & haircare! I’ve finally settled into a Summer skincare routine that ‘s working for me and I don’t really want to change it too much right now after how horrible winter was on my skin. My makeup routine is ever changing though which is reflected by this list:
This bronzer is everywhere! Unfortunately prices just raised across the board for beauty products. Most brands went up at Sephora & Ulta in Canada by at least $2 per product. That may not sound like much but it adds up! The Fenty Sun Stalk’r Bronzer went from $38 to $40 and that slight difference makes it sound so much more expensive. I should have grabbed it sooner!
Sun Stalk’r comes in eight shades that should suit a variety of skin tones. I’m currently eyeing the shades Inda Sun and Shady Biz, I think that either would work well for my skin tone. Do I need a new bronzer? No. This may just remain something I covet from my wishlist page. Though I’m nearing the end of my Sunny Honey Bronzer from the Too Faced Natural Face Palette so maybe I can justify it…
Even though I think you can get insta worthy brows from brow products at the drugstore the Precisely My Brow Pencil is hands down the best brow pencil I’ve ever used. My problem is the price. I just can’t justify splurging on a brow pencil!
The brow kits that Benefit Cosmetics released recently have me turning my head though, The Browmazing Deal set contains a full sized precisely My Brow AND a full sized Goof Proof Pencil for far less than you would pay to buy both individually. I decided to pass for now though and picked up the ColourPop Precision Brow Pencil for only $5. My wallet is much happier with that price.

Speaking of brows I have NEVER tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil. I feel like everyone used this pencil in 2016 when I started blogging, but I rarely hear anyone talk about it now. This kit comes with the Brow Wiz pencil and the new Brow Wiz Gel. I have two brow gels on the go right now but I would love to try this brow set one day!
I just discovered the Becca Cosmetics Glow Glosses and I’m obsessed! They became my holy grail gloss so fast and I never want to try another gloss. The next glow gloss on my list is the Champagne Creme glow gloss which was released as a limited edition addition to the Becca Champagne Pop line.

Body Oils are something that I pretty much know I’ll never reach for… but that doesn’t stop me from staring dreamy-eyed at the ABH Shimmer Oil Product Page. I’ve also been eyeing the new Patrick Ta Body Oils but the ABH one is less of an investment. Kathleen Lights recommended this oil and said that it’s not as glittery as others she’s used so I’m onboard. Sign me up!
Do I even need to explain why I want this palette? Look how gorgeous it is! These tones are just calling my name this summer. I love the orange & yellow summer vibes, it reminds me of oranges and drinking mai tais on the beach! Which I’ll be doing in December, so I might as well look like a Mai Tai too.
This palette is still an investment at $85 but it’s much cheaper than other Natasha Denona palettes. The ND Sunrise Palette contains less product than her other palettes but I’m honestly fine with that. It takes me forever to pan an eyeshadow!
I still haven’t hit pan on my Mini Lila Palette so I think I’ll be good with a smaller palette.
Since I went platinum blonde I’ve realized that my haircare routine has to change. With red/brunette hair all I had to worry about was using a shampoo for colour treated hair but I’m realizing that platinum blonde is a whole other story. Even with a purple shampoo I started noticing brassiness about a week after my salon visit so now I’m in the process of figuring out how to neutralize those yellow tones.
I always do this thing where I draft my wishlists ahead of time and then end up buying some of the products. Last week I received my Amika Supernova Blonde Violet Moisture and Shine Cream in the mail. From now on we will just call this “Supernova Blonde” because that name is much too long to type again.
I was loving my platinum blonde hair for the first week. Then the Brassiness came. It was so upsetting! I honestly thought that yellow blonde hair was created by a stylist who didn’t know what they were doing. I assumed that my platinum silver locks would be there to stay, but here I am with yellow hair and it’s bad. My ends are also extra dry so a moisture cream that also adds purple pigment sounded great.
I’m hoping Supernova Blonde will help return my hair to it’s former glory!
This is another product I’m considering picking up for my hair if the Amika Cream doesn’t help. I have a lot of shampoo left over from when I was an Elle Canada Grand Prix Juror and I don’t want it to all go to waste just because my hair is platinum now. These drops can be added to any shampoo or styling product to help lighten and neutralize brassiness. It has pretty good reviews too!
Beach waves here I come. This Bumble & Bumble Surf Styling cream is currently at the top of my Sephora Loves List. I love the idea of effortless beachy waves and this sounds like such an easy product to acheive them with. Now that I’m blond again for some reason I am all about curling my hair and acheiving beachy perfection. I think that part of it is because the bleaching process damaged my hair enough that it actually holds curls super well now, unlike before where they’d fall out in a few hours.
