Wanting, Desiring, Needing: Spending Ban Edition

As the end of my spending ban nears, my desire for a bit of a haul is really kicking in. There is less than two days til I hit Chadstone for a bit of a treat if I make it until the end. Therefore I thought it was time to put together a bit of a wish/shopping list. 


I am a bit of a foundation fiend and Burberry's foundations are ones that I have been interested in a while. I really like the idea of the velvet one for a more matte finish. The primer from Burberry is also supposed to be amazing. The new summer palettes also look amazing but I think I need to swatch first before I decide to buy. I would be really happy if I could finally pick up the Pale Barley eye shadow. 


How amazing does the model look in the promotional shots for the Fall 2013 Collection? Those smoky eyes and luminous skin looks amazing. I really want to pick up one or two of the new Creme Blushes but am unsure which at this stage. The single eye shadow in Gri-Gri looks amazing and I must have. I must also have the Alchimie nail polish, it is a gorgeous greeny gold. I want to pick up a darker shade of Les Beiges too, probably no.20 or 30.


I have been wanting the Chubby Stick Shadow Tints for Eyes since I heard about their release overseas. I am interested in four of the shades the more neutral shades too. Not sure if I will purchase them all but I will definitely be swatching up a storm at the Clinique counter. 


The Dior Airflash foundation has been getting some great reviews lately and with the release of new shades, I think it is time for me to try it. I have also read great reviews of the Hydra Life BB Eye Cream and god knows I need serious help for my dark circles. Dior have also released some gorgeous looking cream blushes. No idea which shades I want but I look forward to some swatching. 


The Folklore collection from Laura Mercier is another amazing looking collection. I love the look of the eye shadows and the bright pink lip crayons. The new baked bronzer/blushes also look interesting.



One of the worst things about a spending ban is not being able to pick up new products as they hit the market. Maybelline have brought out a heap of new products lately. I especially want the metallic Color Tattoo shadows in the beige and pink shades. I also want to give the new Mega Plush mascara a try. The Color Whisper lipsticks looks really good but as I have been told they taste horrible I think I will just pick up one at first. 


Another product I have been hearing great things about is the Radiant Creamy Concealer from Nars. I want, as I said earlier I need all the help I can get for my dark circles. Just an excuse to visit Mecca Cosmetica - which I LOVE.


As I mentioned above, I am a foundation fiend. I love trying new ones just to find that amazing one. I have heard fantastic things about the Shu Uemura foundations, I am not sure which one will suit me best but I am sure the lovely people at the counter will help me. I will probably buy more than just this though, I have been loving the products I purchased last time. 

What is currently on your wishlist?


  1. Great wishlist, I love the look of those Clinique tints for eyes as well! I have Pale Barley from Burberry and highly recommend it, they have some great neutral singles there

  2. I've gone mad for Chanel or Dior lately so I look forward to seeing what you buy!

  3. I need to Chanel Hasard and Gri Gri eyeshadows and possibly the Creme blushes. Do you happen to know when the fall collection will launch here?

    I've got both the Color Tattoo metallic bases, love them!

  4. Are you heading to Chadstone this weekend?! Me too! My friend's coming down from Sydney and we were going to shop in the city but with the possible hail forecast we thought we might hide at a shopping centre. Let us know what you get. Last time I was in Mecca I tested the hourglass powders and omg..

  5. I've wanted the Burberry foundation for so makes me rethink my spending ban again haha.
