The biggest drawback to being jobless is that I walk around aimlessly in Sephora, MAC and the drugstore. I stand there forever looking at the endless palettes that I want to purchase, mascaras I want to test and lipsticks I want to have. It’s torture in it’s simplest form.
As I sit here drooling while browsing the Sephora website, I figured I would make a list of the things I would buy in an instant if my bank account was magically refilled and my bills payed.
1. Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 – $50 US
I love the original palette, but I feel like I’d get more use out of the colours from the #2. The only thing I wish is that this one came with the UD eyeshadow primer potion that comes with the original palette.
2. NARS Danmari Palette (discontinued) – $60 US
I hate myself for not buying this back in October. I hate that I didn’t know it was a limited edition palette that would run out in about two months. A single NARS blush is $28 US – this is an AMAZING price the blush/bronzer set. I shed a tear whenever I watch a beauty vlogger using this palette during a tutorial.
3. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! – $19 US
The “Lights, Camera, Splashes!”(waterproof) version was recently reviewed by icallitambrosia (via YouTube) but I couldn’t find it on Sephora’s website. However, she was raving about this being her favourite high-end mascara because of how waterproof it was. I cry A LOT and my eyes get watery because of my contacts, so this mascara is practically begging me to buy it.
4. Sephora Collection Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist – $15 US
I read a review on this self-tanner as a well, and apparently it’s really good and actually leaves you bronze and not orange AND you end up relatively streak-free. I wouldn’t mind buying this along with the Illuminating Bronzing Oil ($14) …
5. Wonderstruck Eau de Parfum Spray by Taylor Swift – $59.50 US for 3.4 oz
I love the bottle, I love the fruity light smell, I love Taylor Swift. I walk into the drugstore near my house just to spray myself with it. The only downfall is that the smell doesn’t linger for long considering it’s an eau de parfum … it should be labelled eau de toilette. I’m not a fan of musky perfumes so this one is perfect.
6. MAC Brushes (ranging in prices)
I have a decent set of brushes….but MAC brushes are amazing. I’d even settle with Sigma brushes. But a complete set would definitely cost me a couple hundred dollars (I kid you not).
7. CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua – $45 US
I heard about it, tried it at the CHANEL counter, it’s amazing. Too bad I don’t have $45 to drop on foundation.
8. LUSH Ocean Salt – $19.95 to $34.95 CAD
Such a good/expensive exfoliant. Need to refill on my LUSH!
9. LUSH No Drought (Dry Shampoo) – $12.95 CAD
10. MAC Impassioned Lipstick – $17.50 CAD
An “amped up fuschia” lipstick with MAC’s original formula. Such a nice shade for the warmer months! And a really good dupe to MAC’s sold out Party Parrot!
All these ten plus everything in the stores.
I wish I was a well known beauty guru so companies would send me products to review. That would be perfection. Right now, I just have to admire from afar.
