Beauty Products That I Want to Try in 2018

Does new make-up make anyone else insanely happy, or is it just me?Honestly, there is no better way to perk me up, or pull me out of a funk than treating myself to some new beauty bits. My bank account (and boyfriend) don't usually approve, but I'm all about that #treatyoself life.

Make-up and beauty are getting to be expensive passions of mine, what with all of these banging product launches that brands are coming out with these days and all; I feel as though my make-up wish list is never ending. I guess it comes with the territory of being a beauty junkie.

I'm narrowing the plethora of products out there that I want to try down to a handful of the main items that I've been dying to get my hands on for a while now.
So, here are a few of the items that I'm lusting over in 2018:

Makeup and beauty products that I want to get my hands on in 2018

I can already foresee how this post is going to go, so let's make it a little more interesting. Every time I say something about a products' availability in Australia, do a shot of Vodka.

P.S. I've linked stores that offer the best shipping to Australia. These links are not likely to be ideal for 98% of my readership - sorry.

Keihl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I feel that every beauty blogger and their dog has tried the Midnight Recovery Concentrate. Every beauty blogger except me, that is. I love me a good overnight treatment and I have loved everything that I've heard about this one - It especially appeals to me as a dry skinned gal.

Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Powder
Powders don't often work well for me due to my dry skin but I've heard that this offering is great for drier skin types as it contains rose wax and almond oil (!!!) for a more hydrating, creamier texture. A powder that doesn't dry you out and leaves you with an almost dewy looking finish is VERY appealing to me. I've always wanted to try some of Charlotte Tilbury's stuff (ohai, no Australian stockists) and I think that this is the perfect place to start.

This is something that you actually can purchase at Sephora Australia, or at least, you could. It always seems to be sold out.. or they just plain don't stock it anymore as I've never seen it restocked. I've wanted to be the owner of a Marc Jacobs something for so long now, and this bronzer really calls my name! The colour is lovely and the undertone looks amazing. The huge pan just sells it to me even more.

This was first brought to my attention by Nikkie. It's so unnecessary and extra, but that's what I love about it (and her, let's be real). I'm not a huge gloss girl, but this golden metallic shimmer would look amazing over a nude lip!

SO many people have been raving about this stuff! AND I can get it from the UK, too (much better shipping rates)! It's is a bit extra for a face mask, but I really like the idea of a "treat yourself" mask that'll hydrate the skin and leave it looking glowy and soft and from what I've heard, that this is just that. I love me a good watermelon scent, too.

Jackie Aina was the person who first brought this powder to my attention - she raves about it in almost every video but I never bothered to have a look for myself. Turns out I can get it in Australia! I'll have to put it in my next order. Hopefully it works well on drier skin types!

Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream
At this point in time, it's impossible to get Fresh in Australia without going through a parallel import site, which I plain don't trust. I've heard rumours that Fresh is coming to Sephora Australia, though, so that's a plus. A good skincare product is always going to be high on my "to buy" list and I absolutely love rose on my skin. Everything that I've heard about this moisturiser, I've liked.


Are there any beauty products or new releases that you'd like to try this year?
Let me know if you've tried anything on my wish list! How did it work for you?
