The Mid Month Wishlist

15 February 2015

I was up last night (well this morning, this is what happens when you sleep valentines day away) thinking what the fark am I going to post on my blog? I don't believe in blogging for the sake of it, but I do think consistency is important. I have SO many things I want to blog about, but my head really isn't in the right place these days (job woes, boy woes, LIFE woes). Honestly I just want to go live in a cottage in the Irish countryside with a cat.

So in the wee hours of the morning, obviously it hit me that I should do a wish list post because what greater filler post is there and because who doesn't think about the ten thousand things they'd buy if they had money? Seriously I've been writing a list this whole week, obviously this has nothing to do with me getting back into the swing of watching YouTube videos... My bank account is weeping and payday is ages away so I cannot indulge myself in anything but the necessities, but I can dream about the stuff I'll spend my money on once I have it.
Feb wishlist

MAC Lip Pencil in Currant - I will probably walk into MAC and buy like 3 lip liners, I really hope I don't because I just cannot afford to but you know. Purple/Plum colours are my lipsticks of choice, but once I apply them in the morning I'm never bothered to reapply. Because I eat a lot, by 11 most of my lipstick is gone and I am too lazy to reapply. So hopefully wearing a lip liner will increase the longevity. And man what a beautiful colour Currant is! You can see it properly from the stock image, but there are loads of swatches here.

Clinique Even Better Essence Lotion - I've been reading up loads of skincare this month. I got kind of tired of trying skincare because it was hyped up. I've never heard of this product, but it's essentially a toner (even though it says lotion) and it meant to be really good for combination/oily skin. 

Lousie Young LY34 Super Foundation Brush - Even though there's nothing wrong with my RT buffing brush, I really really want to have this brush. My RT foundation brush is horrible for actually blending foundation into your face, I always use it to paint my face and then go back in with my buffing brush. Even though I don't need another tool, I want it okay. 

Maybelline Lipstick in Totally Toffee - Although I love my purples, I have lately been wondering about nudes. I've never really bothered with them previously because I find it hard to shop for one. So I hunted around for reviews on nudes/neutrals for dark skin tones and I think this might just be one that I try out.  Sometimes I don't always feel like wearing colour on my lips and with spring approaching (lol I hope), I think it will be nice to have some muted colours. 

Milani Lipstick in Sangria - Ah after watching the wonderful Liz's 'Purple Lipstick on Darkskin' I decided that I needed this in my life. Like I said before my go to lip colour is always purples and plums, and yes I do still feel that I need another one in my life. 

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - I absolutely love my Smashbox foundation, but lately I have wanted something that it full coverage. The Smashbox foundation is actually medium to full, but I hate the thought of just layering it on. I've heard so many good things about this foundation, although I can't remember if it's suitable for oily skin or not. I definitely want to get myself to a counter and get matched to a shade.


No doubt I'll be paid and forget that I even wanted these babies, but that's all that is on my list at the moment! 

What bits are you lusting after?
