10 Beauty Things I'll Never Need: But Really Want.

Often times my shopping trips consist of blowing $100 on a few makeup essentials, food, and clothing items. Never would I consider splurging on something as bizarre a lip cleanser. But let's all sit down and relax, dreaming about everything we'd get if we didn't have to think about the price tag or how much we actually need it.

1. MakeupForever 12 Color Flash Case ($95)
Complete with a hefty price tag and colors I'll never use!
I might enjoy a select few shades as a liner but the rest wouldn't exactly blend in with my neutral and low-key everyday makeup look, ya know? On the other hand, I would have the best makeup for any Halloween party/School play. And don't get me started about the secret experiments in the privacy of my own room...

2. Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Eyeliner Set ($22.00)

I'm honestly infatuated with the idea of makeup in paint shades. I can just imagine some one complimenting on how my liner matches the wall! The only thing stopping me from getting this set is my need for a new concealer and that orange liner. Orange is close to the top when it comes to my favorite colors, but as a liner...not so much. No matter how much magazines encourage me to test a pop of color, I just won't don orange lids.

3. Bliss Fabulips Set ($45.00)
In the four-piece kit you get a foaming lip cleanser, an exfoliator, a balm, and a plumper. The only thing that makes this a product I'll never need is the foaming lip cleanser. As luscious as it sounds, my lips get enough deep-cleansing when I was my face. I have a nicely-sized pout, no doubt! (Hehe...rhymes.) And I'd love to pamper it with a set like this, but I'll have to wait a bit and stock up on some necessities first.

4. Guerlain Météorites Powder For The Face ($58.00)
The tiny illuminating pearls are so exquisite...and expensive. Frankly, I'm just not in the market for an overpriced and incredibly sheer highlighting powder, despite its cute packaging and formula.

5. Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Gold Shimmer Dust ($39.00)

Not very often do I question why my makeup collection lacks a pure shimmer spray. Every single trip to Sephora consists of spritzing this product on my body. One spritz (not really spritz because it's not liquid...) shoots tons of fine sparkles all over. It'd be amazing to use in your hair or on your body, but for $40.00, it isn't something I can just randomly buy.

What kinds of products do you think you want, despite how much you don't need them?
