Weekly Beauty Question #5

the beauty milk coveted items beauty question
Hi, lovelies! This is the fifth installment of my Weekly Beauty Question, an open discussion post where I invite you to talk about different beauty related topics. Last week I asked you about the size of your makeup collection (small, average, large, hoarder-like, etc.). A lot of you said it depends on whether you compare it to a blogger or a non-blogger: In comparison to the average person, your collections are large; but taking into consideration the online beauty community, your collections are modest. Here's this week's question...

Q: What is your most coveted beauty item? That includes coveted items you now own and items you're still lusting after. Did that item meet your expectations?

My Answer: Without a doubt the single beauty item I have coveted the most is the Urban Decay Naked Palette. The Naked palette has got to be one of the most famous and hyped products in the beauty community. I went to my local Sephora several times in hopes of it being restocked. And although it's definitely not the first product that has made me stalk a store's beauty aisle, it's the only one that got me into such a frenzy. I definitely fell for the hype. Thankfully, the Naked Palette did meet my expectations. The quality of the eyeshadows is great, the entire palette is very versatile, and it's a good value (considering what individual UD shadows cost). 

As far as beauty products I'm still coveting, I really want to buy all of the new Milani Shadow Eyez Naturally Chic Limited Edition shades. I adore the Shadow Eyez and the new shades look amazing. So far I've gotten one, but right now I'm on a no-buy and don't have the money to go out and buy all of the colors. :( Beautyloverproblems. I'm also bummed that I wasn't able to get the Charmed I'm Sure lipstick from MAC's Marilyn Monroe LE Collection


I'm looking forward to reading your answers! Have a nice day!

  1. I have to say my answer is the same as yours - UD Naked palette. Though I didn't stalk stores since stores in my country don't carry UD... I had to hunt it down on the internet and pay quite a lot of money for it. And I don't regret it for a second! It's my favorite makeup item of all time. :D

    1. If my local stores and online retailers didn't carry it, I think I'd also have paid some overpriced amount for it. I really really wanted it x

  2. I have a feeling the Naked palette is gonna come up quite a bit in the comments haha It has to be my most coveted beauty item too, I remember being overjoyed when my Sephora started carrying UD (they don't do it anymore, sadly) and I buying it as a self-bday present haha It definitely didn't disappoint, the colors were as beautiful and smooth and pigmented as I expected them to be.
    MAC lipsticks are the ones that I was lusting after for so long and when I finally tried them, I wasn't blown away. I do like them but I don't think they're worth the 19€ price tag.

  3. My answer is the same as yours, too but meanwhile I still haven´t got the palette and a bit of the hype has gone. I think I still wouldn´t buy it because of the price but I also don´t feel like I´ll miss out something anymore :)

  4. Hmmmmm I think the most coveted beauty item that I own right now is my NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder; to say I had a spasm when I saw it in stores is an understatement and it lived up my expectations with flying colors (apart from it being a bit TOO tightly packed... definitely buying the loose version next time). The one that I'm still lusting after and kicking myself for not buying when it was available is the Illamasqua "Freckle" nail polish :( I still kick myself over that one and lust over it weekly hahha!!

  5. My most coveted makeup item right now is my Ariel Storylook Palette. The packaging (the box, the palette, everything), the colors inside, the fact that it was A MERMAID PALETTE, well I just couldn't imagine not having it. So much so that I stalked the Sephora website for days and lost sleep because of it, haha! As for something I'm still coveting it would have to Dior's Amber Diamond. I love, love, a highlighter to make you shine on the outside and on the inside. It's absolutely gorgeous and so soft and everyone needs to stop talking about it so I don't feel bad for not having it, haha! I know there are dupes (which I will probably get) but nothing would compare to having the real thing! /moment over, haha!

    1. Ohh, Amber Diamond! I really want that one! Have almost bought it a few times but backed out because it's so expensive xx

  6. Ooooh that UD palette is still on my wishlist! Where I don't wear eyeshadow that often I can't justify purchasing one but I would definitely buy one if I ever do.
    Mine is probably MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation. It's a bit boring for a coveted item but it's the only foundation I've found so far that matches my skin perfectly

    :)

  9. Good answer! UD Naked is a classic staple for a reason! I'm sorry you missed out on the Marilyn lipstick. I hate when there's an LE shade you're coveting that sells out super quicksies and only appears on eBay for triple the cost! Boo! I think my most coveted beauty purchase was also the Naked palette! It was definitely one of my gateway drugs into makeupaholism. :)

    1. The Marilyn lipstick is on eBay right now for $30, twice the original price. I really wouldn't pay $30 for a MAC lipstick. Hahaha, the Naked was also one of my gateways x

  10. I would have to say that I can't live without my L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara...It is my favorite and the best one I've ever tried, and it also holds some sentimental value as I usually bring it with me on vacations. I always seem to pass up limited edition products too, then regret not getting the shades that I wanted. The MAC Iris Apfel collection always comes to mind when I think about colors I lusted over but was too late in purchasing xx

  11. I think my most coveted item is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, and it lived up to my expectations definitely.

  12. I couldn't agree more with the Naked palette, that, the Naked2, the Naked Basics, and 15th Anniversary palette all from UD are my favorite shadow palettes I covet. I also covet my mac lipsticks and Dior Amber Diamond (sorry Jess!). As for something I'm lusting over, more MAC lipsticks and more mascaras of course!

  13. Mine would be the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation. I wanted it for so long and I still love it. Out of things I don't currently own it would have to be the Naked Palette! I still don't have it, but I don't know if I would want the second one or the original :/

    1. I think if I hadn't bought the Naked 1 and had to choose between 1 & 2 right now, I'd choose 2 because it has a black eyeshadow. The naked one has two gunmetal blue/grey colors that I never use because they don't suit me.

  14. My most coveted item is The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette. After "tasting" how great the Balm Jovi and Nudetude palettes are, I know I'd love that one, especially now that I've come to appreciate matte shades more : ) Great question of the week Coco, I love reading everyone's answer <3 xx

    1. I was once really set on getting Nudetude but I told myself that I had almost every shade in that palette from another brand already. :/ I don't want to buy a lot of repeats but I really want more The Balm eyeshadows because they're so good x

  15. I'm with you on the Naked Palette! I don't think I've ever wanted a beauty item as much as I wanted that! x

  16. I'm with you and almost everybody else with the Naked palette, which was so amazing once I finally had it, and what I'm currently coveting is a whole lot of things hehe, probably mostly the Stila Afterglow lip colours which I'm waiting for in the mail! xx

  17. I'm currently coveting CHANEL NAIL POLISHES ♥ I just recently fell in love with them and I want to collect all shades I think will suit my skintone.

  18. I would have to say my most coveted item is my Lorac Pro palette. My boyfriend purchased it for me for Valentine's Day, and I absolutely adore it!

  19. So many products I've coveted in the past (and still covet!). One recent one has to be NARS And God Created the Woman Eye Kit (mainly just the eyeshadow palette) - I went bonkers for that one :p Haha. It was an outrageous $95 at Mecca Maxima in Australia and not much cheaper online because of shipping costs :'(

  20. My most coveted beauty item would probably have to be my Mac lipsticks, I spent ages looking for the shades I wanted on blog sales. They represent a lot of time and effort a) picking colours and b) finding them all as bargains. I think your answer, the Naked Palette is probably a popularly coveted item too- I know that I'm keen to get one! xx

  21. The Urban Decay Naked Palette is definitely essential!

  22. I'd have to agree with you; the Naked palette is definitely something that every girl needs!

  23. I just got the Naked palette as a gift yesterday and I love it! Definitely a most coveted product :)

  24. Good question! At the moment I'm most coveting the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, especially Dim Lighting, which is a gorgeous highlighter (based on my testing at Sephora). But over $50 is hard to swallow! I'm also always lusting after goodies from Chantecaille (their lipsticks and foundations are incredible), Cle de Peau, and Sistley, but again, the high price tags stop me- most of the time ;)
