May’s Lust List

As you may already know I’m mad about notebooks and lists. My longest list by far is my make-up wish list. No surprise there but there are usually a handful of products I’m on the urge of buying but am reasoning with myself for whatever reason. Here are a few I am lusting after, and am considering buying. Let me know what you think of these – if you think they’re worth it or not.

Let’s get started!

Sleep-In Rollers I saw these in the window of my local Nail & Beauty Bar the other day and was intrigued. I googled them as soon as I got home and I discovered that they are huge amongst the desperate scousewives community – I’m afraid I’m out of the loop on this one as I have never seen it. I was very interested in waking up with big hair though. They cost €21 for 20, apparently that’s plenty for even thick hair. Not an issue for me – I’ll probably have some left over. I’m off to check YouTube for videos on how to put them in. Majorly sexy obviously.


Dior Diorskin Shimmer Star Amber Diamond Powder

This has been on my list since last November. I had evey intention of buying it at Sephora in Chicago but the sales assistant talked me into Too Faced Pink Leopard Highlighting bronzer instead. I love highlighters but I have quite a few. I’m not sure if this is going to stand out enough to warrant the purchase. It’s €40.25 on Debenhams website with free delivery to Ireland at the moment. It’s usually €44.73. I’m finding it hard to resist. Do I need it?



Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF15

This one is top of my foundation wish list. I filled in the questionnaire on Chanels website to see which foundation was most suited to my skin type and this one was recommended. I have been meaning to try it out anyway so I’m delighted it suits my skin – medium coverage for combination oily skin in need of a radiance boost. That’s me. Have you tried it?



The Balm Nude Tude Palette

I was talking about buying this on Twitter and Facebook last week. I actually ordered but found out the following day that my order didn’t go through. I held off on ordering again, I’m not too sure why. I suppose it feels like a complete over-indulgence to buy something you have so much of – neutral shadows! Let’s face it, I need this like a hole in the head. Yet, I haven’t forgotten about it. It’s the matte shades that really appeal to me. The shades seem quite unique when I checked out the swatches too. Of course I may be just justifying myself :) €33.8o from Feel

What should I splurge on? What’s on your Lust List?

    I recently bought the Chanel Vitalumiere in Dublin Airport. I have to say I don’t know what all the fuss is about. I too have Combination oily skin and this doesnt seem to do much. At the moment I also have Rimmel Wake Up, MUFE Matte Velvet Plus and Origins Vitazing….I find myself having to put these ontop of the vitalumiere….its neither a tinted moisturiser or foundation in my opinion. I even found Nars Sheer Glow to be a better foundation and I didnt see the fuss about that either…..I want to try next Lancome 24hr teint indole or Shisedo Sun Protection foundation (its meant to be similar but better to Vitalumiere). At the moment i’ve far too much make up so I’m on a make up ban for everything else

      Tell me about makeup bans, I could do with one of those!! I adore sheer glow, it’s like magic with my skin type. Rimmel wake up was awful on me and I’m still on the fence about matte velvet. When I wore it hubby said my face looked dry – not really what I wanted to hear Lol I really like lancome 24 idole but it’s a bit more coverage than I’m looking for for summer. Interesting about the shiseido one – might try it out next time I’m in town.

    I definitely recommend Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, it’s one of my favourite foundations! :)
