The Guerlain Meteroites in Teint Rose (56) and the Wulong pressed powder which I’ve been stalking on ebay (130), Some stuff from mac (50), the dial a smile kit (59), stuff from sephora (110).

I don’t have many specific things on my wishlist at the moment, but I’d get one of the new Hourglass powders, tons of indie eyeshadows, some fun blushes, eyelash curlers, and some fantastic brushes!

As I closely secretly madlyyyyy follow u ..
I would pick gloss no 2 from CDP

Mostttt of the rouge gs … okay 2 for now 🙂
Makes 150 …
Then tom ford love lust n earthy blush …

Kiddddddsssss I tell you 🙂

N heyyy m not sweet … I seriously do try to pick things which r in my budget .. like I have
Dragon … dragon girl … garconne … gigolo .. echo ..
Yeahhhh hahha n shared the wish list above na 🙂

I’d probably buy all the makeup brushes possible, then brush cleaners! Organisers as well. Then I’d spend the rest on high end makeup. 😉

A beauty blender + cleanser, makeup forever HD foundation, nars smudgeproof backups, al lot of butter London nail polishes, guerlain meteorites in beige, so many things in my wishlist 🙁

I’d buy the $319 worth of brushes from Hakuhodo that are sitting in my cart as well as Tom Ford’s Cream Foundation brush and Blush Brush (the two total to $150) and with the remaining $31, I’d get a NARS blush (possibly Liberte or Seduction).

Mostly skincare! Some Peter Thomas Roth, Ole Henrickson truth serum, then Urban Decay Naked Basics and Naked palettes, Stila In the Lights palette, Anastasia brow wiz, Mac lipstick in Plumful plus some others I’m sure, Mac 239 brush. I just ordered Nars Doucer ($29 for 1 blush, ouch!) but otherwise it would have been on this list.

1) Tom Ford quad Lavender Lust & Sahara Haze – $156
2) Chanel Les Beiges kabuki brush – $70
3) Chanel cream blush Inspiration & Revelation – $76
4) Suqqu brushes – the other $198

I would get all of the lipsticks on my neverending MAC lipstick wishlist (I sadly only own 2, my collection desperately needs to grow) and the Lorac Pro palette is which is currently at the top of my Sephora wishlist! Also the UD Revolution lipsticks. And I’d love to try Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation!

Oddly enough, my current “must-haves” total this amount, LOL!

NARS eyeshadow duos:

Silk Road
Mad, Mad World
Rated R
Fashion Rebel

NARS eyeshadow singles:

Lola Lola
Baby Girl

This totals $512, but I have 10% off at Sephora, where most of this is available. I’d also try to sneak in Copacabana Multiple!

Habanera is gorgeous. I had wanted it for ages and would always pick it up and then put it back down. I finally caved and it’s so much more wearable than you’d think.

Geurlain Gigolo, Givenchy Rose Dressing, Burberry Peony Rose, Giorgio Armani The Red, a nice highlighter, 2 blushes (perhaps NARS), and the rest on a basic set of makeup brushes.

I would buy some must have brushes from Mac then spend the rest at Sephora. Something like Lorac Pro palette, Blush & bronzer duo from Dior and some Chanel lipsticks. I may spend too much of 500$ budget.

I would buy guerlain lingerie de peau, Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation, a couple of Giorgio Armani fluid sheers, chantecaille just skin, burberry peony rose, chanel les beiges, and Tom ford Spanish pink, just to name a few hahaha

Oh man… so many things! I could easily spend $500 just on makeup brushes from Tanseido, Chikuhodo, Wayne Goss (when they release), Houkodou, and Hakuhodo.

As for makeup: About 5 Addiction Eyeshadow Singles ($150), Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyeshadow Singles in “Angelic Cockatiels” & “Fire-tailed Sunbird” ($60), Burberry Eyeshadow SIngles in “Porcelain” & “Midnight Brown” ($60), Chanel Les Beiges in #40 ($60), LMDB Shadow Single in “Corinthian”, Tom Ford lipstick in “Spanish Pink” ($50), Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyeshadow Quad in “Dolce Vita” ($60)… and I’d have just enough to send you a Le Rouge lipstick, lol!

Oh wow that would be amazing! I would most likely get a few more YSL Volupté Sheer Candy lipsticks, one or maybe two of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, the Guerlain Maxi Lash mascara, a Chanel blush, and that’s just off the top of my head. I would spend that $500 in no time at all!

Barry B Brush collection = $174, 4 Hourglass Refills of Muse, Raven, Icon, and something neutral = $96, $100 on foundation that actually works on my face (still trying to find my HG foundation that actually matches my face), Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer = $50, and $80 on indie brand products like Lumikki Cosmetics (bad service but great eyeshadows), Fryinnae (gotta have that primer), and etc

or 250 bucks at Sephora (Hourglass, MUFE, Chanel, and Dior), 100 bucks at Ulta (with using discounts), and 50 bucks at MAC (just lippies because their foundation breaks me out and their eyeshadows are overpriced)

or just in general spend 500 USD on gluten free cosmetics.

$500 = £322 (rounded up)

1. By Terry Cover Expert (£44.00)
2. By Terry Ombre Blackstar (£27.50)
3. Diorskin Nude BB Cream (£30.00)
4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (£38.00)
5. Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo (£22.00)
6. Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick (£23.00)
7. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (£52.00)
8. MAC Creamsheen Glass in Fever Isle (£17.50)
9. MAC Creamsheen Glass in Floating Lotus (£17.50)
10. MAC Blush in Tenderling (£18.00)
11. Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser (£33.00)

Total: £322.50 … close enough!

The new Urban Decay revolution lipsticks (I need quite a few of them), Urban Decay brow kit and powder foundation; Kat Von D Lock It powder, $50 for some shopping on Feelunique, and lastly I would use around $150 to get some beauty boxes from around the world.

I will buy:
– Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer (20$);
– Too Fced Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep Matte Bronzer (30$);
– Too faced The Bronzed & The Beautiful Bronzing Collection – French Riviera Edition (38$)
– MAC brushes (300 $);
– Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (37$)
-clothes (75$)

One part I would spend on the new Chanel Superstition collection. Especially on the creme blusher and the rouge coco lipstick. Another brand on which I would like to spend some more money is Benefit. On the wishlist I have as well the butter lipsticks from Revlon. And on MAC, this for sure… 😉

I would spend a solid 200$ on different hakuhodo brushes. Then another 100$ on two Dior eye shadow palettes. I would then try to find and buy the urban decay theodora palette, buy tarte blush in exposed and probably find and OCC lip tar in a purple shade. My last 100$ would be in guerlain meteorite and some urban decay flashy eyeliners for the bottom lash line.

As many different Hourglass product as I possibly could! With an emphasis on their Ambient Lighting powders which I’ve been lemming since they came out…

$500…Wow. Ok, here is my list:
Chanel Magic nailpolish (new fall collection)
Chanel Taboo nailpolish
MAC retro matte in ALL fired up
La Mer – moisturizing soft cream
Benefit Rockateur

^ I already have my list…unfortunately it’ll take me about 2 years to check off all these items lol

I would buy:
– 4 Givenchy Le Rouge which are still on my wish list – Fuschia Irresistible, Carmin escarpin, Brun Createur, Magnolia, Hibiscus exclusive….thats more than 4 already!! Hmmmmmmm….. Amend header to 5 Givenchy Le rouge lip pies
– 2 Guerlain Rouge Gs – Genna, Gigolo
– Tom Ford True Coral Lippy and Lovelust blush (its your favourite….has to be tried!!),
– Some high end brushes which I cant dream of buying otherwise!!

First, I would go for some higher end products than I normally purchase. I’m really wanting to try the Guerlain meteorites light perfecting primer and compact powder, I’d pick up the Dior Skin foundation, I loved the sample I got. I also want to try the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I’d pick up a couple Chanel lipsticks for sure and with what what was left I’d buy a couple more Smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks for fall, some brushes.

Honestly? A bunch of weird lipstick colors, and then the rest would go towards backup eyebrow pencil, lingering from Mac. I go through pencil like water!

Oh, no!!! I’m in my no-makeup-buy month!!!. Ok, it will be October. I would try:

-Chanel and Shiseido Foundations
-New Chanel cream blushes
-More YSL Rouge Velupté Shine lipsticks
-Giorgio Armani lip products and Eyes to Kill mascara
– of course, one or two of the Givenchy Le Rouge (Temptalia recomendation)
¿any money left? Hakohodo brushes

I would probably finish setting up my make up space in my bedroom…has a nice new desk…but not much else! I would get a FUNKY girly chair, lighted mirror, muji boxes and other cute storage. Those are beauty products right? LOL OR…

I might splurge on 6 or 7 Tom Ford items (hee hee hee hee)

A couple of those Hourglass ambient lighting powders, Hourglass veil foundation, Lorac Pro Palette. And, maybe the rest on skincare. I’ve been wanting to try the glam glow and Kate Somerville Exfolikate. Those are on my must have list for now..

Since I’m all about skincare, I would buy a Clarisonic or Clarisonic Mia for deep cleansing and exfoliation. I would also buy a NuFace Trinity At-Home Microcurrent Facial Toning Device ($295) to keep wrinkles and aging at bay. As a past acne sufferer, I ‘ve learned that clear skin is of the utmost importance for my confidence, and makes makeup application easy and fun. With clear skin, you’re more than halfway there in completing your look.

Easy, I would blow it entirely on perfumes

Atelier Vanille Insensee – 100mL
Frederic Malle Iris Poudre – 50mL
Chanel Coromandel – 100mL

I think I am over already -_-

I’d probably wipe out a significant amount of my wish list, which rounds out to an embarrassing ~$600. First thing I’d probably go after is Guerlain’s Gigolo, which I’ve been eying for awhile but have been saving as a birthday guest. 🙂

Haha, it’s not as conservative as it sounds. 😀 My wish list only contains higher end, permanent items that I can afford to wait on. It doesn’t count LE or impulse buys that may pop up in the meanwhile. Once that’s included, I’m sure it’s closer to $1,000. 😛

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Bang ($22)
Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil ($42)
Hourglass Ambient Powder in Ethereal ($45)
Tom Ford Eye Color Quads in Cocoa Mirage, Orchid Haze, and Seductive Rose ($78×3 = $234)
Tom Ford Lip Color in Black Orchid, Spanish Pink, Flamingo ($49×3 = $147)

Total = $490

Hourglass ambient powder, the purple Marc Jacobs eyeshadow palette, NARS Gaeity blush, Bobbi Brown blush brush, some Buxom lipstick, and Smashbox’s fade out palette. Like I need more shades of purple!

Urban Decay Vice $15
Urban Decay Addiction $15
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder $45
Smashbox Heatwave Palette $48
Bobbi Brown Navy & Nude $60
Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream $55
Urban Decay Bang $22
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick $26
Lorac Pro Palette $42
Hourglass Riviera $28
Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream $20
Stila Smudge Stick Teal $20
Benefit It’s Potent! $34
Ulta Mineral Foundation $14
Real Techniques Core Collection $18
Real Techniques Starter Kit $18
Real Techniques Powder Brush $10
Real Techniques Setting Brush $8

Total $498 and only a few nail polishes 🙂

Sugarpill’s Cold Chemistry palette and I would buy my face, basically. I want a good foundation, concealer, and setting powder that gives me a nice looking base. I’m not sure what I would do with the rest.

I walk around with a wishlist in my head or my phone – a couple of MAC lipsticks ($30), a Tom Ford quad I’ve had my eye on, some of the new Goss brushes ($17- $210), and the rest at Sephora on various goodies.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I could easily spend WAY MORE than $500 from the wish list that I have going now. (Although the mark up in Canada is way higher than it should be, so $500 would represent quite as much here as in the US.)

I would probably divide up the dollars by brand- About $100 each to Rouge Bunny Rouge, Chantecaille, Burberry, Armani and Guerlain. (Although I might swap one of those with Marc Jacobs, since I want to get more of their shadow palettes.) Even then, I feel like I’m leaving out some favourites…

I would buy…
Tom Ford Love Lust Blush $56, CHANEL JOUES CONTRASTE POWDER BLUSH in Rose Initiale $43, Burberry Beauty Natural Blush in Coral Pink $42, Le Métier de Beauté Eyeshadow Brush $40, Le Métier de Beauté Blush Brush $55, Chanel Loose Powder $52, Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con No.3 in Ingenue 102 $42, Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush $52, 11 MAC Eyeshadow Refill Pans ($10 each) $110. Total : $492

Alpha H liquid gold and moisturizer; Emma Hardie cleanser balm; the new smashbox eyeshadow palette; Nars bronzer; and god created the woman, ; benefit they’re real mascara stay primer; and a few mufe brushes….oh man, $500 is just not enough! 🙂

So much perfume!! Well, based on the ones I love (CK Euphoria $85, Dior Addict $105, Burberry Brit $94, Marc Jacobs Honey $92, D&G Light Blue $89…) like 5 bottles. 🙂

Giorgio Armani Beauty – Master Corrector: $37.00
Giorgio Armani Beauty – Maestro Foundation: $62.00
Le Metier de Beaute – Peau Vierge Correcteur Concealer: $95.00
Benefit – Rockateur: $28.00
Benefit – Hoola: $28.00
Benefit – Hervana: $28.00
Sisley Paris – Phyto Lip Gloss: $55.00
Oribe – Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray: $49.00
Tom Ford Beauty – Cheek Color: $56.00
Tom Ford Beauty – Ombré Eye Color Trio: $60.00

Grand Total: $498.00 I *might* throw a drugstore product just to make it an even $500.00. 😉

I have so much makeup, honestly, I have no idea. I have a $100 giftcard to Sephora and I’m debating how to spend it. Maybe on a new concealer + a replacement clairsonic brush + a holiday set when those come out. I couldn’t even imagine how I would spend $500.

$500 = £312 🙂

Le Weekend de Chanel £72
Le creme blush de Chanel Presage £27
Le creme blush de Chanel Destiny £27
Le volume de Chanel £24
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Convoitise £24
Tom Ford blush Love Lust £45
Armani Eyes to Kill shadow £26
Diorshow Fusion Mono Meteore £24
3 x Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners £36

Total = £305, with £7 to spend drowning my overspending sorrows in Starbucks.

Well fragrances ! 500 € 🙂 let’s go ! I would purchase Guerlain Vol de Nuit, Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist, YSL Paris, Editions Frédéric Malle Une Rose. ( 90 €, 140 €, 90€, 140 € ).
No makeup 😉 ? I have spent already ( but not 500 € ! )

NARS satin lip pencil x2 (lodhi & yu) $60, NARS blush in orgasm $30, NARS lipgloss in orgasm $30, Bobbi Brown lipgloss in canary $30, I would finish my mac blush palettes which would be about $200, Urban Decay 24/7 liners in psychedelic sister, freak, electric, yeyo, cuff and chaos which would be another $120, and I’d finish off with sigma’s new liners in the neutral kit and one individual in drift. All together I come out at something like $505. And my prices are in canadian.

These are some new items coming out this fall which i really really want !!!!
1) Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lipsticks
2) Chanel Cream Bluh
3) Clarins Face and Blush Powder
4) Clarins Forrest Eyeshadow Quad
5) Clarins Taupe Kohl Eyeliner
6) Clinique Jenna’s Essentials Eyeshadow Quad
7) Giorgio Armani Foundation
8) Tom Ford blush
and the rest on skincare

Today? Right now? I would buy:

Tom Ford blush in Savage, deep mink lipstick as well as his blush and eye blender brushes (#13). Nars eyeshadow in Mangrove. The rest would go to Chikuhodo and Hakuhodo brushes, easily.

I’d buy 5 or the Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palettes and 6 of her cream eyeshadow pencils. They look so lovely. I can’t wait till they start shipping to the US!

Gosh where do I start!?!? LOL!
Guerlain metrorites & 2 of the Rouge G lip compacts thats about $150
Tom Ford Blush in Lust $60 (perfect name cuz Im literally lusting after it!!!!!)
Sigma Mr. Bunny set $120
With $170 left – Im pretty sure I could burn the rest just by checking off my Sephora wish list- Lorac Pro Palette $42, 2 Nars blushes $60, AT LEAST 3 New UD lippies

Sigh…..thanks for that live, wishing, hoping, day dreaming moment 🙂

Naked2 palette, Lorac Pro palette, a MAC mineralize blush, a Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, an Hourglass whateverlight powder and loads of American drugstore products not available in my country (Revlon lip butters, Maybelline color whispers and the mandarin shade from the Vivids line, a bunch of drugstore jumbo lip pencils, Milano Luminoso blush, NYX blushes).

I’d finally invest in the Lorac Pro and UD Naked 2 Palettes.
Get a few more new UD lipsticks and add the matching lip pencils.
Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation because I really need coverage.
Some Chanel blushes – both cream and powder.
Some MAC blushes and a couple lipsticks.
Try out a ridiculous priced item from Cle De Peau because why the heck not?

I really want that $500 for skin care. Lol.

Real Techniques
Core Collection, Starter Kit, Powder Brush, Setting Brush, Expert Face Brush, Blush Brush, Stippling Brush. $82

Blushes: Dolce Vita, Taos, Mata Hari. $87
ITA brush $39
Loose Light Reflecting Setting Powder $34

Eyshadows: Sketch, Patina. $32
Blushes: Azalea, Cantaloupe. $32
Paintpot: Cave Duvee, Frozen Violet. $40

Tom Ford
Shewolf Trio $60

Pro Palette $42

Masterclass Palette II $59

Storylook Vol. 3 Palette $55

Total: $504 O_O

I’d buy a bottle of Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir ($160), NARS blushes in Taos, Luster and Oasis ($135), NARS Persia Eyeshadow ($39), and I’d order a few Urban Decay lipsticks and lip pencils with the rest.

I would treat myself to some Guerlain Meteorites and Lingerie de Peau foundation, and an Hourglass Dim Light. That gets me to about $200 CAD so the balance would probably go to some great brushes.

I love the Lingerie de Peau foundation. I love it so much that I don’t even balk now at the price (okay, I shudder a bit but I’ve got used to it). When I think of how much I wasted on drug store foundations, the price of one that actually works turns out to be more economical than you’d think.

1. Wayne Goss’ complete brush line ($210)
2. Marc Jacobs The Lolita palette ($59)
3. CdP concealer ($70)
4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders in Mood Light and Luminous Light ($45 x 2 = 90)
5. Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tremble ($26)
6. Bite Beauty lipstick in Granache ($24)
7. Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde ($21)

Wow so many things lol! I’d get Le Mertier de Beaute eyeshadow single in Fig, Hourglass lip gloss in Siren, One of the Hourglass nude lipstick pencils, Bite Beauty Cashmere lip product in Port, Make-up Geek shadows, Inglot shadows. Also a bunch of Jordana, milani and Nyx stuff I’ve been holding off on. I’d also get the other Beaute liqui-gel stains and the whale palette from Chantecaille.

The only things I’m really wanting/planning to buy just now are the new Tarte powder foundation and brush, the Stila In the Light palette (maybe) and some things from Clarins – a pressed powder, lipstick and their new mascara. So I’d buy those and then get a few things I’d like but don’t need from Urban Decay, Nars and Hourglass (just another shadow duo – Gypsy). I’d get Dior Rose and Amber Diamond. I’d probably get the new Guerlain LdeP BB cream. I’d probably still have $150 to 200 left but I’m sure I could find some other little goodies to spend it on! I’m sure there are things I want from Lorac and Laura Mercier….I just can’t remember what now! Oh and I’d like to try MAC Accentuate powder but the Mac near me doesn’t have it and I don’t want to order it sight unseen but with $500 of “mad money”, I might not care! What a nice problem to have!

Okay, scratch the Gypsy duo and more shadows from Nars and UD. I would order 3 to 5 Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows (and maybe a holder for them). Abyssinian Catbird, Bohemian Waxwing, Delicate Hummingbird, Olive Violetear, maybe Solstice Halcyon. Yeah, that is what I really would do. The other stuff can wait!


$15 on Ruby Woo
$100 on Guerlain le Rouge in Greta and Garcone
$50 on a Tom Ford lipstick
$60 on a Giorgio Armani foundation
A little less than 200 on Perfume

Oh God…here we go:
13 MAC Lipsticks – $195
15 MAC Pan Refills – $150
4 NARS Blushes – $120
And the extra $35 on Skindinavia

Well….that went quickly lol

Clé de Peau #2 Lip Gloss would be the first on my list (I’d get 2 of them!. NARS Tolede Lipstick, NARS Rikugien Satin Lip Pencil, I’d get some Bliss body butter and shower gel in the biggest size, the whole Sephora + Pantone collection (execpt eyeliner and false lashes) and the Disney/Ariel Whatcha-Nail-Callit 6 Piece Nail Set. I think I must be at $500

UD Naked Skin foundation: $34
MAC 6 blush palette: (6*17)+10= $112
MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation (mine is running low)= $30
Inglot 10 pan eyeshadow palette= $50
New moisturizer of some kind=$30 (wouldn’t go over that)
Nars Rotonde and Lovejoy blushes=$70
theBalm Instain in Swiss Dot= $22
UD 24/7 liquid eyeliner in Perversion=$19 (Had one, can never get myself to repurchase b/c of price)

That’s like $370ish I think… the rest I would spend on LUSH

Seanik Shampoo bar & tin $13
Imperialis moisturizer $25
Ocean Salt $22
Karma Perfume $30
Angels on Bare Skin $14

A bunch of Nars and Tarte blushes, YSL and Laura Mercier foundations, Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders, several Mac lipsticks and various other highlighters and lip products. Too scared to do the math on all of that!

That is literally my dream! I wish I had $500 to spend on makeup 😮

I would buy…

– MAC blot powder in medium ($30)
– MAC lipstick in chili ($18)
– MAC blush in Frankly Scarlet ($24)
– MAC quad with nylon, digit, wedge, shroom ($64)
– MAC Turquatic Perfume – 50 mL ($55)

– Beauty Blender ($26)
– Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick – 69 ($26)
– Benefit Dandelion Boxed Powder ($36)
– Nars Creamy Concealer – Vanilla ($30)

= $498 CAD

Wow I really wish I could buy all this right now… Maybe I have a mysterious guardian angel?

100 comments – wow.
And kudos to the one’s who knew the brand, the line, the product, the color and the price.

I had to think on that one because my natural tendency is to save for a rainy day (boring huh)?

I do like the Chanel Crème Blush de Chanel line. I have one and there is one other that I want (color escapes me).

I also want to try the Chanel loose powder.

Beyond that, I need to find something that moisturizes the body without clogging pores. My face isn’t a big problem, it just “glows.” But body lotions clog my skin pores and make me look like I have hives all over – actually, I suppose I really do have hives all over. I’m going to exhaust $400 of the $500 in search of a solution. It itches and hurts so it’s more than just the way the skin looks..

MUFE HD Primer in 0 – $34
MUFE F&B Foundation (2 shades) – $80
MUFE Pro Finish Powder Foundation – $36
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – $50
Urban Decay 24/7 Double-Ended Eyeliner – $12
MAC Driven by Love Lipglass – $20
MAC Rebel Lipglass – $15
Sephora Collection Classic Mineral Powder Brush #45 – $24
Soap & Glory The Daily Smooth Body Butter – $20

I’d spend the rest restocking on my holy grail staples over time as needed.

If I had 500 I would spend them on a trip, but If it had to be makeup I would buy Guerlain Madame Batifole, a new Chanel Rouge Allure the fuchsia one, a Chanel nail polish, Guerlain Madame Rougit and a pencil eyeliner.

I don’t know exactly what I’d get, but it would probably be some mega skincare products, some Chanel eye pallets & nail polish, and a few Hourglass liquid lippies.

Deborah Lippman polishes, NARS Dragon Girl, a couple permanent MAC lipsticks, the Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year 2013 set, LORAC Pro, Tarte blushes galore… Gah, too many things!
