It’s been quite a while since I posted a wishlist here on emilyloula, but there’s been quite a lot I’ve been wanting to get my hands on recently, so I thought I would share with you my Pay Day Wishlist!

I’ve been a huge lover of Nip + Fab for some time, and really loved the original Gycolic Fix Pads so I can’t wait to get my hands on these more potent, Gycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme as my skin has been a bit iffy recently! Another brand I’m a big lover of is Makeup Revolution, so when I saw that they had released the Ultra Base Corrector Palette & an Ultra Contour Palette, I definitely got a little bit too excited. I’ve started to get into contouring more at the moment, and this palette looks perfect to help me gain some cheekbones – plus I’ve heard some really great reviews already. The base corrector palette looks great as well, containing 8 creamy, bendable creams to colour correct and balance your complexion. I’ll definitely be adding both of these palettes to my basket next time I make a Makeup Revolution Haul (it’ll be very soon)

A new phone case has been on my shopping list for a while, as my current one is really on it’s last legs. I’ve got a Ted Baker phone case at the moment and they’re my absolute favourites, so when I saw this Fuchsia Floral iPhone Case, it got added to my wishlist pretty quickly! Another thing that’s been on my shopping list for a while is a good higher coverage foundation. Originally I had my heart set on Estee Lauder’s double wear, but I’ve heard that it can clog up your pores, which is a definite no for me, especially when my acne and skin is as bad as it is! I’ve read some great reviews for MAC’s new Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation and heard that this is actually really good for oily skin and coverages blemishes and acne scarring really well, so it sounds right up my street. Plus who doesn’t want to try out a waterproof foundation?

Fact of the day: I have massive, super wide feet, so I find it really hard to get shoes to fit me – especially heels. However, I’ve had great experiences with New Look’s Wide Fit range in the past, and these Black Studded Trim Platform Heels caught my eye straight away. They’ve got a much thicker heel to them and feature a slight platform, which I find makes them a lot more comfortable to wear for a long period of time. The detailing on the shoes are gold (although in this photo they look silver), and black and gold is my favourite, and go to colour combination for a night out. 

This ZOEVA Rose Golden Brush Set has been on my wishlist for the longest time now, yet I still haven’t managed to justify the £56 price tag. I have more brushes than I need at the moment, but this set is absolutely gorgeous and I’ve really had my eye on it for quite some time. It’s my 21st Birthday coming up this month, so maybe I’ll finally treat myself! Another thing I would really love to treat myself to, is this gorgeous matte lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury. I think I’m the only beauty blogger who doesn’t actually own anything from Charlotte Tilbury, but like the rest of us, I’ve been lusting over a lot of her products from a safe distance. For my first (but surely not last) Charlotte Tilbury item, my heart is set on the beautiful Matte Revolution Lipstick in ‘Bond Girl’, this shade is so ‘me’ and I’m pretty sure the rose gold packaging would look incredible as part of my lipstick storage on my desk.

Last but not least on my pay day wishlist we have Too Faced’s Better Than Sex MascaraThis is another product that I’ve been wanting to get my hands on for a while, but somehow I haven’t quite managed it. With such a bold claim for it’s name, I don’t think I can pass up on giving this mascara from Too Faced a go, do you? Again, this is another product I’ve read rave reviews about, and I love the look of the wand and bristles, so I think it’ll be making it’s way into my makeup collection shortly…

That’s all for my pay day wishlist folks! Have you tried anything I’ve mentioned in this post? What’s on your wishlist this month – let me know! As always, I’d love to read your thoughts in the comments, and thanks for reading!

    That Ted Baker phone case is gorgeous! I absolutely love Better Than Sex and have bought it three times now. I always get the travel size though (I actually get through it in 4 months rather than it drying out!). It’s definitely worth a try – I miss it!

    • Gorgeous phone case isn’t it! Oooo since you’ve said that I think I’m going to have to definitely pick it up now! I didn’t even realise they did a travel size, so I’ll definitely see if I can get my hands on one of those! xx

  • I hope you can get your hands on Bond Girl as it really is an amazing shade. The Zoeva brushes are well worth the investment too 🙂 xx

  • I don’t think there’s a single thing on this wishlist that I wouldn’t also like! I don’t have any Charlotte Tilbury products either (yet). I meant to buy the Dolce Vita palette for graduation but didn’t get round to it, so maybe it can be a birthday treat instead (mine’s in September). Really enjoyed this post, which is unusual for me and wishlists, you can just do no wrong haha!
