What do you think will be your next beauty buy? How does it fit in with your collection?

I will probably pick up a couple of shades of Cle de Peau’s new liquid lipstick next time there’s a gift card promo at Neiman Marcus.

Good to know cause I was looking at that one too! I just keep hearing great things about the shape tape, so I’m excited to try it. Right now I’m just using the Sephora brand concealer and I really like it, but sometimes I need something a little more heavy duty.

Well, if I don’t find a dupe pretty soon, it might be that crazy expensive Chanel Stylo Eyeliner in Eros, and it’s not looking good. First, burgundy red eyeliners are really hard to find, AND it’s got to be able to stick to my super oily lids, which the Stylo formula does. If someone knows of a cheaper color dupe, please let me know. I don’t have any such color in my eyeliner collection and always wanted to it

That’s exactly the product I have my eye on right now, Katherine 🙂 It’s a very unique colour and the Chanel Stylo liners are so nice.

Hey Katherine – I haven’t swatched Eros, but have you checked out the Stila Smudge Stick in Deep Burgundy? I really like their formula and it’s a great color ( I own that one). It’s $22 full priced, and Ulta often includes the Smudge Sticks in their 21 Days of Beauty sales at 50% off 🙂

Julia, thanks for the rec!!! I googled Stila Deep Burgundy, and it looks gorgeous! I’m going to try to get to the stores next week to see if it’s close to Chanel Eros, but if not, I might still pick it up at next sale. Thanks again!

Probably something from the MAC Star Trek collection, like the To Boldly Go pressed pigment and/or the WNMHGB lipstick. Also, something or two from the Selena Collection, too. Adding some more collectable pieces to my stash seems like a fun idea!
But then I have a few more “regular” eye products on my to-get list: TF Honeymoon, and likely, the new MUFE 9 pan Artist Palette.

I just discoverd the Revlon Lip Butters, they weren’t so easily accessible for me until recently. I bought Pink Truffle and it’s a perfect dupe for Chanels Intrigue lipgloss. Although the texture is different, the colours are exactly the same. So I want at least one more of that one! And I’m gonna look into the other shades as well. The more lip butters, the marier!

Lucky you! Revlon DC’d all of the lip butters in the USA. For the life of me, I don’t know why, because they were so popular and beloved. IMO, it was one of the worst mistakes ever made by a makeup company. And Pink Truffle was a top seller, people have been hoarding it. I hope you enjoy them!

Maybe we’ve got what was left in the American stocks, hahaha. All the old lip butters… But yes, I can totally see why they were popular, it’s a proper hydrating lipstic, amazing. Maybe Revlon will lance a new color selection or formula soon? I do hope so for you! In the meanwhile I will get some more Pink Truffles.

I doubt there were any left in the USA! When word got out that Revlon was DC’ing them, people ran to the stores and grabbed everything, and they also had frequent BOGO 50% off sales. My local stores were wiped out, the only ones left were opened and used. So I think you have “fresh” lip butters! Enjoy them 🙂

I never had the lip butter, so not sure it is the same color, but Revlon has a new Super Lustrous lipstick (round black case) called Pink Truffle. It seems nice… I got one about 4 weeks ago.

Hahahahahaha! Thank you 🙂 I really DO hope Revlon will make new lip butters for you. And maybe with better cases: these or not pratical to open up, but that’s the only downside of this product.

I went to our local Walmart and Jewel Osco and snatched up about 40-50 of those revlon lip butters (half price and on sale!). If dc’d, these should last me a good loooooooong time, since I don’t use them every single day? They are really good! Have NO idea why they’d be dc’d? Never understand why they DC good products, smh.

Loooove that one, too!!!! Got it in my haul of those lip butters here in the USA (my local Walmart and Jewel Osco still has some….although I think I basically cleans them out!!)

I plan on doing some duty free shopping at L’Occitane when I come back from Belgium, and tomorrow my BFF and I are going shopping so who knows what I’ll buy then 🙂

Chanel’s new eye shadow quad in Candeur et Experience; this will fit in beautifully with my existing autumnal makeup wardrobe of browns, russets, reds, greens and golds.

I have a “birthday splurge” haul on the way which is comprised of 2 Tom Ford Blushes and the 3 new Bobbi Brown highlight powders. After this it will probably be the MAC Trip the Light powders from the Star Trek launch. These all fit into my collection on a clear theme- I am a glutton for shimmery cheek products!

Oh yay! My birthday is 2 days before hours ;P happy birthday to us!

Do you plan on getting anything else during your birthday month?

Happy birthday to you, Joyce! August babies!

This was a *very* indulgent haul, so I plan on cooling my spending until the holiday launches start, hopefully. Aside from the Star Trek cheek powders, though! I think those are late August online, early September in stores. I cannot resist those little beauties.

Are you treating yourself to any fun purchases?

Lol yes that’s us!

Hmm I’ve been eyeing Anastasia Glow Kit in Gleam and Benefit Cheekathon palette. I would depot them both into a MUFE metal palette, but like Christine has said before, good luck seeing it in stock!

Omg…I just did a birthday splurge! I went on Ulta and bought myself a $200 box of goodies that was delivered the day before my birthday. All different brands of lipstick, nail polish, eyeliner, and shadow. I made myself so happy!!

Happy birthday to you!

Thank you…I supposed I should have also disclosed the MAC order I made from Macy’s too that same week. Admitting the problem is the first step to solving it.

Well the next one time I purchase makeup will be IMATS in October….

But what I’m actually planning to get is Kat Von D’s holiday liquid lipstick set as it has 6 shades of hers in mini’s that I don’t have.

Surprisingly, I don’t have anything in mind. Althougt I saw a couple of Sephora brushes on sale yerterday and one of them looked perfect for concealer application.

I’m looking for a blush palette…waiting to see what’s in the holiday collections. I just purchased the YSL Couture Variation Tuxedo eyeshadow palette because we travel a lot and this palette had EVERY color that I need. I almost literally did a little dance when I saw this palette at the counter haha. Everything from lighter shades for day (in shades that I will actually wear) to deeper grays, blacks, and jewel tones for evening. I no longer have to bring 10 different eyeshadows with me. If I can find a blush palette, like the one from Tarte, I would be ecstatic. I know there are a few out there, but a lot of them have bronzer, which I don’t use so I won’t buy them. I’m hoping to find a perfect one with pinks and reds. 🙂 I’m also looking for a rich, satiny red lipstick that is NOT an orange-red. I want RED, dammit lol. Those new Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks from Chanel look interesting.

Thanks!! I don’t have access to Besame in any stores around me so I would have to order online and I’ve never swatched any of their lipsticks. I’m a little leary about ordering shades online that I’ve never seen IRL.

Yeah understandable. My closest Sephora is very small, and there’s no big department stores or makeup counters any closer than a 45 minute drive, so I rely on seeing swatches from Christine or Phyrra. It’s tough to not swatch things myself first sometimes.

On Besame’s website they have kind of a swatch gallery for each product, for photos submitted by customers, and that’s really nice. Because of that I recently bought the new shade “Blood Red” 🙂

My favorite highlighter, Colour Pop Double Dip, is so used up and dried out that I need to replace it, ideally with another cream highlighter. Suggestions welcome 🙂

How long did it take for it to dry out? Was it limited edition? I haven’t taken the plunge into Colour Pop yet but I really want to! Super bummed I missed out on Alchemy eyeshadow.

It took a little over a year to dry out, and it was limited edition. I should have grabbed a backup when they rereleased it, but I thought it was going to be permanent ?

Probably one of the new shades of the NARS RC concealer once it comes out in stores and if I can finally find a close enough shade match. I’ve been wanting to try out the concealer, but none of the shades were close enough before.
Or it’ll probably be another MAC lipstick, I recently got of rid of a couple of the drugstore dupes for a MAC lipstick because the formula/color didn’t work out for me.

I’m not sure, I need a new foundation as I’m running lowish. I’ve hit pan(like a dime size hole) on a blush I need to replace. Those are the things I know I need. My mind keeps saying “But there are all these LE lipsticks you want and look at those sale palettes!” I also need a skincare top up for three very expensive things!

I think my next purchase is going to be a new concealer. I ran out of my Nars creamy concealer (finally, after using the mini size for nine months, since I use very little when doing my makeup) , but I don’t think I’ll repurchase because it doesn’t seem to work under eyes because it’s way too thick. So I think I’m going to try the new Kat Von D concealer. It’s seems to be getting good reviews overall. I just purchased the glamglow flashmud brightening mask last night. I have way too many masks, but I love them, and if I’m lounging around the house, I have one on, always.

Have you tried mixing the concealer with a little moisturizer or MAC Strobe Cream? I mean, I haven’t, lol, but I have the same problem with Maybelline’s Fit Me concealer. I would probably mix it with my Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel but I’m usually in a rush so I don’t even bother lol

I don’t know exactly what I’m next going to purchase but I have the ongoing saga of replacing shades of lipstick I already own with similar shades in a formula that I can actually wear. These days most lipsticks cause my lips to dry and peel and I’m a huge lipstick fan. Sadly my lips seen to have expensive taste. ?

‘Lip Balm Fest 2016’ has officially finished though! I’m finally happy with the lip balms that I have. Heck, it only took me five years…

Some favourites include:

Givenchy Le Rouge (modern matte finish with a lovely smooth feel – amazing)
Guerlain Rouge G (I love this formula so much I own almost all of them ?)
Chanel Rouge Allure (I never hear many raves about this one but it works well for me)
Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy (awesome formula and beautiful colours)
Urban Decay Revolution/Vice (I panicked when I heard they were replacing the Revolution lipsticks but now that I’ve tried the Vice lipsticks I’m love – plus the colour range is insane)
Tom Ford (not the matte ones but the regular formula is great and has some of my staple colours)

Cheaper options that work:

Revlon Super Lustrous (a great formula, I swear by the ones with the creme finish)
Rimmel Moisture Renew (these are no longer the mostly-dry lipsticks I remember from years ago, the new formula is creamy and doesn’t drag – so glad I gave them another go)

Not all lipsticks marketed as hydrating work for me but the above do. Also, I’ve had good luck with liquid lipsticks such as Shiseido Lacquer Rouge, Too Faced Melted, Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color and Ellis Faas Hot Lips.

In short (long?) I’m getting there but having to replace gorgeous colours I already have is so expensive, not to mention annoying! Please be aware that I no longer worry about longevity so not all of these last amazingly wear but if it’s a toss-up between staying-power and comfortable lips comfort wins every time. I’m happy to reapply a few times if needed than have gross, gunky, dry looking lips.

I was going to write a whole new paragraph on lip balm but I decided that that would be overkill! I’ll just name a few I love:

Rouge Bunny Rouge Kiss Elixir (holy grail status)
Rodial Glam Balm (the one in the pot – also holy grail)
Sisley Nutritive Lip Balm (rivals the above two – still testing this one)
MAC Lip Conditioner (the one in the pot – a long time favourite)
EOS lip balm (not as hydrating but perfect prep for under lipstick but to non-sticky/non-slippery finish)

OK, I’m done now, I swear!

What lip balms would you recommend?
Most lipsticks(even high ends) make my lips dry and peel too and no matter what lip balm/treatment I put on or how much water I try to consume seem to help
Lately I’ve been pretty happy with ud vice in cream formula?

I hear you on that one! I drink an insane amount of water and my lips are never any better for it. Anyway, here are the lip balms that have really helped my me (I also recommend exfoliating with a soft toothbrush for even smoother lips):

Rouge Bunny Rouge Kiss Elixir (holy grail status)
Rodial Glam Balm (the one in the pot – also holy grail)
Sisley Nutritive Lip Balm (rivals the above two – still testing this one)
MAC Lip Conditioner (the one in the pot – a long time favourite)
EOS lip balm (not as hydrating but perfect prep for under lipstick due to non-sticky/non-slippery finish)

I hope that helps! I’ve probably missed something out but oh well, my memory has never been any good. ?

I’ve had some reactions to some lip balms I’ve purchased, so I’m always really cautious with what I try. I’ve had really good luck (allergy wise and use wise) with the Bite Agave Lip Mask. I wear liquid lipstick almost ever day and I put this on in the morning and at night after I brush my teeth. I remove it before I apply any lipstick, but at night I leave it on while I sleep and my lips look and feel amazing when I wake up!

It’s not exactly a lip balm or very glamorous but if your after a moisturising lip treatment the ‘Blistex Relief Cream’ (the one with the red lid in the metal tube) is superb.
Not sure if it’s avalible in the US?

I have my eye on a few mac eyeshadow pans. I have a double sided palette and there is half a section to fill. I still want copperplate, rule, embark, and sketch

Realistically, probably BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel palette. It’ll be my one-stop travel palette for simple neutral eyes and highlighter. I don’t like carrying around expensive things, and that’s what I’m doing right now with Too Faced’s Sweet Peach palette & Becca’s Champagne face palette.

Longingly, the new Viseart Bijoux Royal palette. It is literally my perfect jewel-tone palette. I’ve actually been waiting for Urban Decay to release something similar, almost like everything that was in the first Alice in Wonderland palette. But it’s so, so pricey for me, so I’ll probably wait until F&F sale. I really wish the palette was included in the $128 special at Muse Beauty!

I’m interested in trying the Ouai haircare line… probably the oil because I ran out of my last hair oil.
I’m also trying out a lot of new fragrances, and looking forward to trying some new launches…

I’m still eyeing Bite Lavender Jam lipstick, but I might pick up a few things from Urban Decay this week since I have a $10 reward.

Well, I plan on visiting a CCO while in Myrtle Beach on vacation this weekend so how knows what kinda of goodies I’ll find 🙂

Good timing, since this week I’m on a shopping trip; on the list: check out in person TF Honeymoon quad and some lipsticks (e.g., Jake and Daniel), Guerlain lip products. Only Honeymoon quad plum shade would fill a gap; the others would be for indulgence.
Also: Tarte and Estee Lauder foundations as my usual Laneige isn’t doing well in heat and humidity; to fill gaps: a medium-to-light neutral/nude-ish eyeliner and an eyeliner brush.

Anastasia lip glosses are AWESOME! Extremely pigmented. Like VERY. Nothing like the barely there Buxom glosses I used to wear. Really really like all these new Anastasia glosses. Soooo many great colors to choose from, too. Have fun!?

Thanks! I know abh lipgloss have been out for a while, but I have yet to try. I love glosses and love trying the different formulas. I agree the buxom are not my favorite. I love all their sparkly colors as toppers, but I can’t get pass the plumping; it down right burns my lips!

I checked out the Cle De Peau liquid lipstick, looks very nice and sleek, what color(s) are you thinking about getting?

I still need more Dior Skin foundation and I’m still on my no-buy ban which ends soon! Whew! so I’ll pick up my foundation then and I want a few of the newly designed MUFE Lipsticks, Boscia glotion, Becca Highlighter and I love the MILANI liquid lipsticks; I think they are fabulous so grabbing four more colors but that’s about it. Not sure on the Becca yet but she’s on the list.

Are you very good at keeping up your ‘no-buy’ for a good while and then suddenly you just don’t care anymore and you buy a LOT within a few weeks or even days? This happens to me… So happy not buying stuff and then suddenly: whaaa! I want this and that and that and that also… 😀

Lol sometimes I’ll do that. My no-buy now is cause i have to save for moving so i can’t even indulge when i do buy but i do love it when i can splurge and can’t wait until i can buy what i want and need.

More Sunday Riley skin care products. Everything I’ve tried has excellent, almost unbelievable results. I would also like to pick up Frantic Pink blush by Tom Ford; I’ve been told it wears all day. I’m growing weary of all of the eye shadow palettes being pushed today–when you think about it…do you really wear more than 3-4 colors on your eyes, but you’re paying for a slew of them. Won’t look at those until the holidays, at best.

Frantic Pink is divine, and it really does wear all day. It just gives you that gorgeous, lit from within, soft peachy pink glow without being artificial. The pan size is quite generous, so even though it’s pricey intially, the value really in the long run is superb.

I suspect it will be the Lise Watier Fall 2016 Chic and Rustic palette, plus a couple of their new self sharpening liners. I choose to wait until this Thursday (senior’s day and 20% discount) Not really a purchase as I will be redeeming points for the items, but exciting new things to try none the less.

I’m hoping for the MAC Luna Luster powder from the Star Trek Collection, assuming they don’t let everyone buy 100 of them to sell on eBay and sell out in 2 minutes. I’m just getting back from the surgeon in California so I’m going to be WIPED OUT so we’ll see, as I won’t be able to stay up to order it right when it launches, and will probably still be recovering when it’s out in store a week later.

It kind of fits into my collection as I don’t really have any pink-hued highlighters, but mostly I just really love Star Trek. I wouldn’t mind getting the copper-y and green pressed pigments in the collection but it’s all pretty pricey so my number one pick is the powder.

I just pre-ordered a bunch of the new Tom Ford lip duos, so I can’t wait for those to ship. Otherwise, I think I’ll be waiting until more of the fall/winter launches come out. There’s a new lip lacquer coming from Armani, more face and eye products from Tom Ford, a new palette and lip colors from Chantecaille and then always the holiday coffret from Cle de Peau. It will depend on release dates. The lip duos aren’t supposed to be out until October but pre-orders for them, and a pink cream shadow, started yesterday.

I just picked up Chanel’s Le Rouge fall eye quad and MAC’s C’est Chic palette so I think I’m good until the holidays. Maybe the new Viseart jewel-toned palette. I’m kind of relieved that most of the new lipsticks are frosts (not my thing), so I can coast there too. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the holiday collections from Tom Ford, Chanel, Guerlain’s Metorites and MAC, though!

I like it! I’m not used to doing all matte eye looks so am mostly just using this in conjunction with other shadows/palettes. I like that the colors are muted and neutral because (to me) it makes it really versatile (and I’m a sucker for neutrals). The shades have decent pigmentation and they blend well. It rounds out my collection pretty nicely and makes a nice addition. ☺

Thanks to your review Christine, I have my eyes set on a couple of Smith Cosmetics brushes. I have never come across this brand and I live in Canada :).
Also, I would love to try one of Anastasia BH Liquid Lipsticks.

Probably some of the new Nyx Suede Matte Lipliners. They have some purples, blues, etc. that are hard to find and I don’t have in my collection.

Probably the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Palette or that Muse Beauty Viseart special–I have some birthday money burning a hole in my pocket!

I’m about to finish off my liquid foundation and am debating between purchasing the following: the new MUFE Water Blend Face & Body Foundation, Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation, and the No7 Lift & Luminate foundation.

I do currently have a mineral powder foundation, and while it’s great for quick everyday makeup, I like having a liquid foundation to alternate with when I want to either feel less cakey or build up more coverage.

I would love it to be the bareminerals Soft and Smoky eye palette, but no, no-one ships this palette to Australia…..
My new lipsticks will be arriving soon – Milani’s Tuscan Toast and Bronze Metal. My favourite colours. Yes, I know I have lots like them, but I cannot resist when they are on sale.

Thank you for your kind offer Deborah, but I am not sure how this would go with the money exchange and the international shipping. I am going to get it with Hop, Shop and Go I think.

The Tom Ford lip contour duos piqued my interest in my inbox yesterday. Also, the YSL fall eyeshadow palette and plum polish looked really smart too, I think I will wait for a review/swatches on the palette first though since YSL can be dodgy with the formulas.

I am such an impulse buyer but since I love lipsticks and blushes, it might be one or the other! I might go rogue and get both! ; )

If we’re not talking about repurchases of core products (powder, etc.) then my next beauty purchase will probably be the Bite Beauty lipsticks Kale and Squid Ink.

I just received my new Dior Mascara and finally got to order colourpop metallic lipsticks, on their way. I’m good for a couple weeks or until I see another lip color….

I’m definitely going to get the new Makeup Geek shadows when they are finally released. They will fit right in and make fast friends with the other zillion eye shadows I have 🙂

Lots & lots of IT Cosmetics!
I sure hope L’oreal’s buy out of IT doesn’t change their products!
I love their foundation because it goes on & lasts beautifulLy AND has 50spf! I love their Bye Bye concealer – covers everything & doesn’t accentuate my fine lines. ( I used to be a diehard Cle de Peau user as far as foundation & concealer went – but I’m switching to IT!)
I love their blushes, Bye Bye Pores powder, mascaras, brushes, & highlighter.
The only thing I didn’t care for from IT was their short lasting lippies, chalky eyeshadow, & smeary eye pencils.

For makeup I really want to get a hold of MAC lipstick in Courting Seduction. Hopefully the color will suit me well 🙂 Also, I’ll probably splurge on NARS Audacious lipstick in Raquel.

I don’t have anything white-lilac in my small 20+ lipstick collection, so Courting Seduction will be a nice addition and Raquel is just a beautiful color, it’s out of stock currently, but it looks very promising and can become my signature lippie.

For skin care I’ll be getting It`s Skin Power 10 Formula YE Eye Cream and Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule serum. Just cause I’m running out of a serum and eye cream 🙂

I want the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette so bad! I’m going to try and wait till the Sephora VIB sale though since it’s permanent!

I’ll probably get a bunch of eye-shadow samples from Shiro because it’s an indy brand I haven’t tried yet and I’m interested in Indy brand eye-shadows because they have unique shades. I love how you can buy samples to test them out and then buy the shades you really love.

I’ve had a Clairisonic for years. I think you will love yours. I take mine apart after each use to rinse behind the brush and the base as I noticed suds under there. Don’t know if that matters but it only takes a second.

Mascara for sure being that I only have a waterproof and a regular mascara that I’ll be done with at the end of the summer. Clinique’s new mascara is on my radar (I actually like a lot of their mascaras) or any of Tarte’s also. I’m also eyeing Tarte’s new naughty Nudes blushes and Bare minerals GenNude liquid lipstick.

Today I just ordered Cle De Peau’s Refining Pressed Powder 0.17 oz. which is the smaller size. I don’t usually wear pressed powder but I heard good things about it and I’ve wanted to try it for sometime. I received a 20% off code from Sak’s so I went for it.

I think the new NARS Consuming Red and Infatuated Red lip pencils. Granted, I already have enough red lipsticks for someone who doesn’t wear lipstick too often, but the reds are so beautiful! And I like lip pencils better. I have the Dior Nude Air Luminizer Powder sitting in my Nordstrom shopping bag, but I am resisting, telling myself that I have quite enough luminizing products!

Perhaps that beautiful Chanel Autumn eyeshadow quad if it reviews well and some Anastasia lip glosses.
I’m curious about some Mirenesse Collegen compacts (foundation) too if they are carried anywhere near me. Anyone know anything about them?

My next buy will be the fireball highlighter from Urban Decay, or the coca powder foundation from Too Faced. The first one is because I love duochrome things, so it would fit well with my makeup geek duochrome eyeshadows. The second one is because I really like using powder foundation, I used one from Sephora, but it’s hard for me to find my shade :/ But I hope I will resist to buy them soon because I already made orders on the ABH website and it was expensive haha

Probably the UD Moondust palette. Because it’s UD and sparkly eyeshadow and those are two of my major weaknesses right there. 😀

Definitely hoping for a couple of the MAC x Star Trek lippies and shadows. Also considering taking advantage of the Muse sale to get a couple more Viseart palettes. 🙂

Nothing until Christmas. I got way too much last month (sale season!) and I need to force myself onto a longer no-buy.
It might get tricky at the end of this month because I have a business trip to a country where ABH is in stores (not available here). When I was there a few months ago it was new and they had only the brow section and some face products. But if they received any eye palettes I’m in trouble…

I just bought a complete set of dupes for Artis Brushes. Can’t wait to see how they work. Thought that I would start with the dupe and if I like them, then I can save up the pennies for the real thing. After all, you cannot get your makeup right unless you have the right tools.

Great question and if this was last Saturday I would say the UD Naked Smokey since UD, Sephora and Ulta all marked it down to $27. So of course at that price I could no longer resist. Lol!
Future purchase – need a peach color corrector for a lovely sun spot that has recently revealed its self on my forehead. UGH! I’m also definitely buying Laura Mercier Flawless Skin oil – I received the sample in the Sephora 500 pt reward and OMG I put 2 drops in my moisturizer and my skin feels like silk, my pores appear smaller and the pink undertones in my skin tone down. So far the .01 oz sample has lasted a month and I’m only half way through it.
I’m also really interested in her new eyeshadow palette but haven’t seen really any reviews of it so I’m hesitant.

Hard to say, because I’m always looking for the new stuff, so when either the stores or magazines start showing new collections, that’s when I’ll choose. I will say that with 100 shades, UD keeps me wanting a couple more new Vice lipsticks.

MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara. It’s not new obviously, but it will be my new mascara.. I hope!
I did alot of research on this mascara and all the reviews were mainly positive. Does anyone have any insight on this mascara before I purchase it? Or can anyone recommend a High End awesome mascara?! (. My husband asked me what expensive mascara do I want for my Birthday and perfume. He knows what my fav perfume is, no guess there. L) Thank You Temptalia! …. Oh, it will add to my collection perfectly! I’m a mascara hound! ?

My next beauty purchase might either be a new facial serum, sunscreen or foundation as I’m running out of all three. I’m thinking Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Serum and Biore UV Aqua Rich SPF50 Sun Cream, but I’m not sure on foundation. I might try Illamasqua Skin Base or Doll10.

I’m seriously considering the La Prairie powder foundation. After seeing how amazing it looked on Tati Westbrook in her WTF video, I can’t stop thinking about it. It was on her WTF video because it cost $90…ugh!

I don’t have anything in mind right now except for buying backups of a couple of skincare products I’m about to finish. When I go to NYC in November, I’ll probably buy beauty products that aren’t (easily) available in Europe, though!

I really want the bite beauty a mouse bouche lipstick in sweet cream, the origins maskimizer spray, and the tarte exposed highlighter. also on my wishlist is the new YSL star collection lipstick but $37 for a lipstick is NOT a justifiable price at all!!
