We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

A new foundation. I’ve been on the look-out for a good one for my combination/dry skin and it’s really hard finding one with good coverage that doesn’t make me look like I dipped my face in powder. I picked up a sample of Diorskin Forever and that one is pretty promising though πŸ™‚

My wishlist is quite lengthy. Brands include: Becca (mainly foundations & the Shimmering Skin Perfector), Inglot (the eyeshadows!), NARS (concealer, eyeshadow primer, and one of the Satin Lip Pencils), Bourjois, Louise Young (I love the brushes and want more!), Louise Young (more brushes!). There are more things, I’m sure, but those are the biggest ones at the moment.

Either a Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color or one of their duo eyeshadow palettes. Years ago, I started in skincare with Shiseido. I should have stayed with it as a couple of products from other brands actually damaged my skin. I also remember Shiseido eye shadows as being soft, pigmented and non-ashy. I began to stray back to the skincare last year (big thumbs up so far) – and I find myself straying back to explore the latest eyeshadows as well.

Probably a Burberry or Armani foundation. They cater foundations pale enough for my pasty skin, yay! πŸ˜€

IΒ΄m also thinking about buying a Clarisonic brush thingy (or maybe the Philips one), but both are really expensive over here in Germany.

A few Illamasqua products (my first ones actually) such as Naked Rose and Move, which I ordered as a treat for making it through another round of finals πŸ™‚

Chanel Fall 2013 Quad “Mystere” & one of their new crΓ¨me blushes, perhaps Presage or Revelation. Saving my pennies now!

Maybe some of those Hourglass Ambient powders but I keep going back and forth – I’ll read a great review and want one then I’ll read a mediocre review and change my mind. At those prices, I guess I want 2 things – to know EXACTLY which shade will be my best choice and also to know that practically everyone loves them!

Maybe one more Dior cream blush, maybe finally a YSL Rouge Volupte Shine! Don’t get me started on the autumn collections though! That’s when this answer will become VERY VERY long.

Guerlain Rouge G “Genna” is the main one. I was out and about recently and swatched it and was blown away. Also Chanel Inimitable Intense, Poudre Universelle, and Stylo Waterproof

The Ariel Collection! I want the story look, quad, and mirror so bad! I hope it’s online soon, I’ve been checking several times a day.

Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipsticks in Bright Plum and Deep Burgundy, Lip Velvet Long Wear Lipstick in Bright Poppy. πŸ˜€

NARS Fall 2013 looks very promising, plus a few things from the permanent lineup. I also want to pick up an Inglot palette at some point.

I actually have two that I intend to buy on my next trip to the Guerlain counter: Ombre Eclat eyeshadow Primer and Les Roses eyeshadow quad πŸ™‚

Update: I bought Les Roses (love it!), decided to skip on the Guerlain primer, so next on my list is the Nars smudge proof eyeshadow base :).

Oh god, I’ve been spending way too much money on cosmetics lately. I’ve bought almost everything that was on my wishlist already…but on my eventual to-buy list are Zoya Meadow, Zoya Tinsley, Essie As Gold As It Gets, Revlon Sandalwood lipstick, Maybelline Pin up Peach lipstick, and probably more things I don’t know I want yet. ._.

Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara after your question on what is best for short straight lashes, add fine to that list and you have my lashes! Hope it does the trick! Thanks for the tip.

I’m trying not to get my hopes up on those, as I don’t know if we’ll end up getting them… We still haven’t gotten the L’Oreal Candy Pop collection where I live.

I’m trying to hold out in anticipation and excitement for Fall collections, but buying odds and sods here and there. I want to pick up 2 more Illamasqua cream blushes as I really like them for layering.

The Stila convertible color in gerbera has been on my wishlist for several months now! I also want to try out the new Revlon super lustrous color & shine lipsticks.

I’m a bit overstocked with products however i wish I could have gotten Urban Decays Vault of all their eyeliners at a reasonable price or through the drawing. They sold out quickly on the UD site and are on Ebay for 3-4 times the price.

The Givenchy Le Rouge are amazing and worth the price πŸ˜€ , I just picked up my first one today and I adore it. As for my next wishlist products I want Bobbi Brown pot Rouge in pale pink, Mac Ruby woo, Mac Plumful, Mac Speed Dial, and that is pretty much what I have in my mind right now.

Makeup: probably more inglot , hourglass powder ( although, I really want to wait until F&F ) oh and the Nars concealer I will be buying this week when I get paid.
Clothing: more dresses
electronics: Im buying a new phone soon

Ellis Faas, anything from the brand. Maybe eyecolor or foundation
Makeup forever Face & body foundation
Guerlain Maxi Lash
Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush & Powder in Dim
Nars Light reflecting powder & some more nars lippies
Makeup forever aqua lipliner in 20c
Dr. Jart+ CC Essence Balm
and I want to try something by Koh Gen Do
