Lip Scrubs

I love them, but they’re super easy to make yourself, so it feels like a real indulgence spending $10+ on one.  They always sell them in jars that are really quite large and take forever to finish! But I love the effect they have on my lips.

Blush Palettes

I think that they rarely suit a wide variety of skin tones, so I wish when brands did one, they’d consider at least releasing two, if not three, varieties.  Whether they split it up by skin tone (light, medium, dark) or by undertone (cool and warm), it would go a long way. Most blush palettes feel like a variety of pinks and corals that run warmer.

Brown Mascara

On my black lashes, it doesn’t usually look brown, just murky black. I like the concept, though, and I think it should work better for those with naturally lighter-colored lashes.

Gold Eyeshadow

I think gold can be really brightening, both on the innter tear duct as well as on the center of the lid, flanked by darker shades. I wish there were more pewter-y/antique golds that were permanent available, as the typical yellow gold doesn’t always work for everyone.

Red Lipstick

Red lipstick is totally classic to me, and I think that you can feel really powerful when you wear the right red. I’d love to see more red lipsticks on the market with a greater variety in finishes.
