The ‘I want it’ List

Yes, no matter how full my make-up drawers are I still keep adding to ‘The List’. What is the ‘The List’ you might ask. It is as you may have gathered, a list or everything a greedy makeup junkie wants. For me this is different to my Wish List. The latter are a list of things that I wish I had, things that caught my eye but need to read up on first.  The List is actually things I have decided to buy over the next month, year, decade… you get the idea.

‘The List’ lives in a scruffy Forever Friends notebook that was savaged my my tiny terrier (she can’t resist pink paper, who am I to deny her). Enter pic of gross notebook:

And currently on my list…

  • Barry M 3-in-1
  • Stila Multiple in Gerberra
  • Barry M 3-in-1 Base Coat
  • Barry M Dazzle Bronzer
  • Sonia Kashuk blending brush
  • Stila Kajal – black
  • D&G Rose The One
  • Nars Albatross
  • MAC Prep & Prime Powder
  • MAC Club eyeshadow
  • MAC Texture eyeshadow
  • MAC SPF 50
  • NYC Colour Wheel in Peech
  • MAC Gingerly blush
  • MAC Posie Cream blush (and maybe Ladyblush)
  • Rimmel Pink Blush lipstick
  • MAC 2n lipglass
  • Illamasqua duo bronzer in Glint & Burnish
  • Orly Cotton Candy nail polish
  • Estee Lauder Pink Sands lipstick

Do you keep a list? What is on yours?

    Oh my gosh.. I always have a list. Recently, I’ve been knocking off quite a few of them.. A few I have gotten and highly recommend are:

    YSL golden gloss #20 – I LOVE this.
    Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey – flattering shade for most everyone.
    Smashbox eyeliner set, black brown blue gold / on special at sephora $15!

    I just ordered MAC lipstick in creme d’nude.. Can’t wait to get it!

    My lust list includes:
    Nars blush in Deep Throat
    Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland book of shadows (too pricey for me right now)
    China Glaze For Audrey – I too have heard it’s a dupe for the Chanel one
    Smashbox photo finish primer (LOVED the sample)
    MUFE HD foundation
    YSL touché radiance (whatever it’s called!)
    MAC gloss in nymphette
    Benefit eye brite
    OPI mad as a hatter

    yes I have a problem! Ahhh! Btw, I am fairskinned/blonde/blue.

    Love your blog xoxo

    @Amy – Forgot to say about the Bronze goddess!! I like the purple eyeshadow. It’s buildable so it’s not as scary as it is in the tube! I love the lipgloss. I’m thinking about trying the Wild Orchid next time I’m in but Wild Coral is fab. It’s not as bright orange as the tube either but it’s not a clear gloss like some of them can look. I think it’s what the lady with the turquoise eyeshadow in the posters has on and it does look like it does on the posters. I love colour on my lips so this is right up my street! Gorgeous texture too! I figured out my nails look more like Essie Lapis of Luxury. Is there anywhere in Dublin that stocks China Glaze? Aparently the Chanel Nouvelle Vague looks like China Glaze – For Audrey!

    @Amy Oooh Revlon you say? Cos I’m looking at my “mint” nails at the mo and they’re borderline Paddy’s day!! May have to try something on the paler side!!

    @Kerry & Amy – couldn’t live without my Big Beautiful eyes palette! I’m too pale for the concealer though which is a shame but I love the eye colours so much I don’t mind! I’ve very little left of the base so if either of you know a MAC or other brand dupe of it it would save me having to replace the whole thing!

    @Erica  Thanks for the tip. I haven’t been near either counter in a while so that’s good to know! I saw the crescent row range when I was in the US but had just shelled out for my Chanel Coco Mlle perfume so couldn’t stretch for another one! Got BSpot for free last year! Not impressed. Very sweet.

    List stretched yesterday because Goods in KK had 10% off cosmetics and 20% off clothes. Bought Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess liquid eyeshadow in the purple shade and the lipgloss in Wild Coral! So happy! Also bought Barry M nail varnish in a kind of mint colour so I might hold off on the Chanel one!

    As for a makeup Wish List, i dont have very many. I have a big list of otherr non essential items that I really dont need though ha!

    -Chanel Jumbo Flap 2.55 Bag in Light Beige with Gold Hardware. (Don’t think i’ll ever be purchasing that however, as when I asked the price in BT in Dublin I nearly fell to the ground when the lady told me it was €2,100. Yeah, not a chance.)
    -A Nikon D5000 Camera
    -15” MacBook Pro
    -Christian Louboutin Heels
    -Tiffany Key

    i could literally go on for the day, so basically everything in Brown Thomas!

    I really want a NARS blusher, but they’re so darn expensive!
    Don’t try the barry M 3in1 base coat, I have it and it doesn’t strengthen

The brands includes Bobbi brown, Cargo, china glaze nail polish, cover girl, jemma kidd, mac, milani, nars, neutrogena, physicians formula, victoria secret cosmetics, wet n wild to name a few (hee). And of course, each brand has at least 7 product which I want in my makeup kit :D

  18. Hi. I’ve tested Gina in the shops, it smells lovely. I was given Sofia and think that one is a bit more of a grower. I’ve got Barry M Pale Purple on, it is lovely and I think I prefer it to Revlon Minted!
    My list is so long but these are at the top, Gucci Rush 2 (it used to be one of my signature scents, I love it!), Marc Jacobs Daisy, Barry M dazzle bronzor, MAC Mythology, MAC Naked Lunch, MAC Tempting, MAC Style, MAC Well dessed , L’Oreal True Match, St Moriz, Crest Whitening Strips.

    - MAC All That Glitters
    - MAC Patina
    - YSL Rouge Pur in Tea Rose
    - NARS Cactus Flower cream blush

    That’s quite manageable actually! Maybe I’ll just cave and get all of them haha x
