I can’t think of anything that’s on my wish list at present.  My editorial calendar has filled up quite a bit, so I’ve already gone through and picked up the items that make the most sense to review.  Generally, what will keep me from buying a product is that it’s not something I can/will review (whether that means it’s uninteresting or unlikely to still be in stock by the time I finish testing it).

[email protected] Same here! … except not exactly for mother’s day.

Before I type out an actual comment, I’m testing to see if this even goes through because I think I’ve had one comment actually post with this new system out of probably 5 that I’ve attempted…

I’ve been wanting to get a Clarisonic Mia for a bit now, but the price holds me back because it seems like a lot for something that washes your face, lol.
Also, I’ve been wanting a new straightener, but because I have so much hair, and it’s thick/coarse/curly, it is hard to find a straightener that does all it needs to do. I can’t put down a huge chunk of change down for something that will only do a half-assed job.
Those are the two big things on the list. Everything else is just extra stuff I want to try, but just haven’t got around to purchasing.

Miss J, I have the exact same sort of hair. I have a Chi but on a recent trip to Paris, needed something that would work with the voltage there. I bought a Remington dual-something straightener from Amazon for about $14.99 and it’s amazing! Absolutely NO difference from my super-expensive Chi.  And since the latter is generally susceptible to cord damage (it seems to be a common problem and I once had to send mine in to be repaired), I generally use the Remington one instead. I figure, if it breaks, it was only $15. But it hasn’t broken after 8 months and I love that it has variant heat controls, going up to 410.  If you don’t want to spend crazy amounts on a straightener, you may want to look into the Remington.  The one I got is a bright purple with 1 inch plates.  

[email protected] you SO much for your suggestion!! I will definitely take a look into the brand! 🙂

Out of the dozens of things that are on my wish list, I’d have to say the top spot is taken by the MAC 239

I use the #239 each time I do my eye makeup! I also highly suggest the #217 if you don’t have that one. I can use it for everything!

Either Sigma Brushes or the Naked 2 Palette… my college kid budget gets in the way every time!

So it was like 1AM, and I couldn’t fall asleep. Whenever that happens I usually meander my way over to my makeup area to reorganize and clean house. Heh. I had this like epiphany moment where I realized I was no longer interested in buying makeup for collection purposes and only wanted products I know I would love and use often. I even went through and put things that I thought I could never part with in my donation pile.
SO ANYWAYS, long story short: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage & Oil-Free Foundation Primer, MAC Fix+ & Blot Powder, Peter Roth Thomas Oil-Free SPF 30 Sunblock & SPF 45 Instant Mineral Powder, Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Liner. Very exciting, I know 😛

I actually can’t think of anything off the top of my head! For once! Fairly happy for now, and that means swamped in new makeup and new foundations to try!

estee lauder double wear max cover foundation or vichy dermablend. Just seriously full coverage foundation

I’ve been trying to find Lancome’s original Teinte Idole Ultra Foundation in Ivoire 1. It is my all-time favorite and it seems like it’s being phased out due to their new 24 hour version (it’s good, but I still love my old standard). And the few places that still have the foundation don’t have Ivoire 1. So I’m looking and this will hopefully be my next beauty purchase.

I really want Urban Decay’s eyeshadow, any of them, but I just don’t have the money to spend on it, even if I had a Sephora near. I’m a broke teenager 😛

[email protected]@mightyclassy07 That’s a great idea but she just bought herself one…  I think I’m going to try out the Clarisonic Mia and if I like it I’ll get both her and my sister one. 🙂

Tarte Spirited lip “stain” pencil. It’s a pretty sheer red-orange colour that would be perfect for summer. Thing is I have too many sheer reds and corals already. I’ll probably buy it after I finish one of what I have already.

Illamasqua’s Precision Liner in Havoc, and the Colorburst Lip Glosses from Revlon’s Escapism collection. 

I would say 3 items as they all are not out yet in London until May.
Guerlain 4 colopurs eyeshadow Summer 12
Clarins Summer 12 eyeshadow quad
Bare Mineral Element palette
and Mac 217 is always in my mind, but it is not on the list. It is just I am too tired to wash my brushes so often.

Guerlain Gigolo Rouge G lipstick.  I’ve been eying it since I saw it in the swatch gallery and finally decided to splurge.  As for what’s kept me from grabbing it recently – well, about $1000 worth of college classes, PCAT exam entraces fees, planet tickets, and rent decided to hit all within three weeks of each other.  😛

Lustre drops in Sun Rush and Tinted moisturizer – also MAC. Among many many other things…these are just the ones I’m picking up this week.
