Tagged: What's on your beauty wishlist?

Props to Charlotte at Lipglossiping who's created this fab tag. This post has kept me busy on Polyvore and various beauty sites this evening. Cheers hon and keep up the fab work, loving the blog so far and I swear you take the best pictures - long live Canon baby!

So, onto the tag :-)

Here's £150 (that's $245 - check www.xe.com if you need to convert it to a different currency)

If you could spend this on any beauty or skincare products, what would you buy? I'd choose ...

Estee Lauder Advanced night repair
(£48) - I always see this winning annual beauty award categories and would love to try it to see what the fuss is about but the price has put me off. I want to see if it works for me, especially since I'm becoming paranoid about premature aging.

Sephora Moroccan Sunrise palette (£20) - I've wanted this since last Summer but when I went into Sephora to get it in May, I was told that it was discontinued. It's still available online though (as you can see), so I must order it before it does finally disappear for good. I love the colours and it'll be a handy palette to pack for weekends away or holidays.

Sephora Professional Platinum Air Brush # 55 (£21) - I'm not really loving my MAC foundation brush at the moment, so when Emma (Magpiesparkles) spoke of her plans to get this one day on Twitter, I did some research and was sold after watching a couple of YT reviews. I'm looking forward to trying this as it's completely different to the MAC # 187 brush and I want that "air brush" effect for my foundation we all crave.

Smashbox Blush Rush in Paradise (£14) - Adina (Krasey Beauty) did a review of these last week and I was impressed by the further reviews I read on the Sephora site. I love peachy shades so would like Paradise to add to my blush collection. I also love the added feature of a slide out compact mirror - very considerate!

Philosophy The Present Clear Makeup (£23 on HQ Hair - though much cheaper on Sephora.com so will be buying this stateside!) - I don't use a foundation primer, but tried Smashbox's last week and was quite impressed but this is cheaper and has even better reviews so I want this one instead.

Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief (£30) - I'm yet to find my HG moisturiser and my skin has gone from oily to quite dry lately and I think this may well do the trick. I remember using a Clinique moisturiser my Mum bought for me a few years back - Turnaround Concentrate something or the other which my skin seemed to like, but I didn't repurchase it cos it was out of my budget as a broke student at the time. Again, I've read a lot of good reviews for this and am keen to try it out.

I've actually spent £156 but I think I've done quite well considering! LOL Have any of you tried these products? If so, comments please!

I tag all my readers to complete this :-)

Oh, that palette is PRETTY... and reasonably priced too. You should definitely stop procrastinating on that one and hunt it down before it gets away for good!

My cousin swears by that Moisture Surge, haven't tried it myself though.

Great little collection of wants, thanks for doing the tag! xxxx


HAPPY BIRTHDAY - have a good one chicka!

@ Lipglossiping - The palette is sat in my basket along with the brush and primer. I've asked my boyf to order them tomorrow (U.S time) cos then I get my free b'day pressie from Sephora too ..hehe. I'm glad your cousin rates the Clinique so much. I think some of their skincare products are great.

Thanks for the b'day wishes too xxx

I bought the large bottle of the estee advanced night repair. I used it for a while and the stoped I still have like half a bottle left. Its I guess one of those things that may benefit you in the future but hard to see results now which I understand but is a hard regime for me to stick too. Its hard for me to say if it works or not. It feels nice on the skin. But a half a bottle later I saw no difference.

I totally second you on the palette, I love Sephora's Moroccan Sunrise collection, I want to get my mitts on the makeup bags they look gorgeous but they are constantly out of stock and really roomy and the atomiser and the mirror and EVERYTHING, I have a real thing for middle eastern looking stuff!

VexInTheCity said...

@ Olivia - Me too!

@ Oyin - Girl, have you only just realised?! ;-)

@ Sara - thanks for that. So all it did was just make your skin feel smooth? Hmmm ..I'll try and get a sample before buying the full size. Thanks for the b'day love too xx

@ Shangri-La - I have the atomiser!It was on sale @ Xmas. I got the pink and gold one as the white and gold had sold out, it looks lovely. The palette packaging looks gorgeous. Yeah, that collection is really nice.
