An End of Summer Wishlist

I've been working a lot of hours for the past few weeks. Most of that goes into my school fund for books and tuition, but with those fees finally taken care of I can start to splurge! There are lots of things I would like to get for the upcoming school year, not all of them makeup.

Leather Jacket
I love a good leather jacket. Currently I have two, a pinky beige one and a worn-out black one. Both are fake leather, of course! My black one is practically unwearable so I would like to find a good replacement for it, and a darker brown one, too. Hopefully closer to fall some stores will start carrying them.

Skagen watch
Whenever I'm working at the jewelry counter my eyes are drawn past the blingy Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs watches to the more simplistic, minimalist Skagen watches. Sadly the one I really wanted was sold recently, so the next time a nice one comes into the store I'm snatching it up!

Lorac Unzipped Ocean Sunset & Desert Sunset palettes
These palettes caught and held my attention the moment they were sneak-peeked by Lorac. I haven't tried the Unzipped formula, but if it is similar to the Pro formula I know that I will love it. I'm drawn to the colors in both of these palettes and I think I could get some great looks out of both of them. At the moment Ocean Sunset is the one I want most, but if I can I'll get both of them (I'm a hoarder like that).

Tocca Liliana perfume
I've been trying to find some good cruelty-free fragrance brands, and Tocca almost always comes up in my Google searches. I love Tocca's Simone perfume so I wanted to try more, but there were a few that sounded nice and I can't afford to buy even a travel size of all of them. Instead I ordered a sample pack and have been testing out minis of ten of their most popular perfumes. Lilianna is my favorite from the bunch, a really similar scent to Marc Jacob's daisy, fresh, floral, and green. I will likely go through the sample quickly so I'm hoping to get a larger one!

Pixi Cheek Gel
The Glossier Cloud Paints have ignited my love for a cream blush, and these ones from Pixi sound really nice! The Natural shade especially looks good for me.

Becca Backlight Filter Primer
A primer that makes your skin glow? I'm on board! My best friend swears by this primer and I've been wanting to try it for a while. My current, slightly mattifying primers are great for the summer, but as autumn and winter are approaching I know I'm going to want something more hydrating.

Colourpop One Wish, Two Wish nail polish
If you haven't heard, Colourpop recently launched nail polish! I've been wanting to try a holographic nail polish for a while, but I haven't seen any affordable ones until now. One Wish, Two Wish is a gray polish with color-shifting sparkles and it looks absolutely beautiful.

Demeter Fragrances: Almond, Caribbean Sea, Kitten Fur, Dark Chocolate, Pixie Dust, & more
Have you ever wanted a perfume that smells like pizza? Demeter Fragrances has it! Their fragrance inventory is extensive and includes both classic and unusual scents. I really want to place an order, but all I'm waiting for is a confirmation that they are cruelty free. In their FAQ they say that they are, and they don't ship to China, but a blog listed them as not cruelty-free in 2015 so I decided to email them and see what response I get.

Summer is quickly coming to an end, and there is still so much I want to do and get! What's on your wishlist for the coming months?
