All the wants

I know we’re halfway through February, but I only just realised I haven’t put together a lust list. I’ve been concentrating on being good this month and mostly succeeded, however, the #feelingspendy bug kicked in last Friday when I had to go pick up a birthday present for my brother and replace some clothing basics. Sigh.

  • Chanel ‘Jardin de Chanel’ Blush Camelia Rose (limited edition and oh so beautiful) So yeah, I bought this. I lost 5kgs and kinda wanted to treat myself and it’s been on my list… I went to the Chanel counter at my Edgars and tested it out. Oh my. The glow. I managed to grab the very last one. No buyers regret but I think my wallet hates me.
  • Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil (still on my list, I know. I can’t wait until I can afford this baby. I’m planning on getting the big spray bottle version) Bought a big bottle for myself later this year.
  • Chanel Inimitable mascara (I loved the Volume de Chanel mascara but promised myself I couldn’t JUST BUY another Chanel mascara because they’re so goddamned expensive. But then I received this Inimitable mascara sample, and I’m in love again…)
  • BalmBalm Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm and BalmBalm Little Miracle Rosehip Serum (I’ve been meaning to buy both these products for ages now, but the price scares me a little.) Got this for my birthday from Janet ^_^
  • I’m still on the hunt for a foundation. I keep flitting between Dior Forever, Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet and Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation. I think I need to get some samples. But Dior never has samples. Ugh.
  • Chanel Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer (looks like you can use this under your eyes and on blemishes. Just what I need because my Wet n Wild one is almost finished and it really didn’t impress me…)
  • I saw this amazing powder on display at the Dior counter in Edgars, Cavendish. It is so finely milled and magical. I must have the shade 010. It says it’s good for oil control…which is exactly what I need. It could have been the Diorskin Forever Extreme Wear and Oil Control Matte powder. HMMM. Must investigate.

"We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
