January is for many people, myself included, not the healthiest month of the year in terms of finances, and in a lot of cases December and the holidays are to blame for that. Seriously, my Christmas bonus was gone before I could say ‘’more dessert please’’… Add a couple of ridiculously high medical bills* to that, and your bank balance is in the red. And of course that has to happen right when all cosmetics brands are launching their new spring collections, aaargh… So what’s a girl to do? You can’t exactly get a mortgage to shop for new Dior lipstick, but luckily there’s always the next best thing: window shopping and making wish lists for the future! Today I’d like to show you my current make-up and beauty wish list.
* I’ve been suffering from a knee injury for over two months now, boo :-(
1. NARS Kauai Eyeshadow Duo & NARS China Seas Eyeshadow Duo
NARS created two new eyeshadow duos for their spring collection of 2014, and because one is none I put both the teal & plum duo China Seas and the gold & purple duo Kauai on my wish list. That way they can keep each other company while I’m out, kind of like dogs, you know *cough*anyexcuseisagoodexcuse*cough*
2. Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer – Blemish Control
I still haven’t found my holy grail foundation primer, but when Smashbox launched their More Than Primer – Blemish Control primer last year, a voice in my head told me that this acne-fighting primer with 2% salicylic acid might be it. So on the wish list it went!
3. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
Real Techniques has been on my to-try list for ages now, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about the brand’s Expert Face Brush. I know I keep putting it off, but I swear that one day this brush will end up in my brush collection.
4. Essence Superheroes Nail Polish Remover
Rumor has it that this nail polish remover from Essence can easily get rid of even the most stubborn glitter nail polish. And that at such a low cost. Looks like must-have material to me!
5. Chanel Le Blush Crème – Intonation
I don’t really need any more blush, but there is always room in my beauty stash for a stunning cream blush like Intonation from Chanel’s Note de Printemps spring collection.
6. Lush Prince Charming Shower Gel
My boyfriend and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t be thrilled to get this shower gel with marshmallow root, vanilla, pomegranate and almond oil from Lush’s 2014 Valentine’s Day collection. So Tom, if you’re reading this…
7. NARS Wind Dancer Nail Polish
Yep, another NARS product from the spring collection of 2014. When I first saw this pale peachy orange jelly nail polish pop up in a press release I immediately fell in love with it. It’s such a pretty color and it has such a lovely finish!
What’s on your current make-up and beauty wish list?
