One of my favourite mood lifters is virtual shopping. I can while away many happy hours on my favourite sites compiling list of things I want to buy. Browsing brushes is a particular favourite and at the moment I seem to have a major Japanese brush obsession. I have plenty of brushes already and only one face to use them on. So I don't need any more brushes I just want them. Here are a few that I'm craving right now.
This is one lemming that has left me feeling most frustrated. I have visited the RMK counter in Selfridges quite a few times but I hadn't considered their brushes until recently. What a lot of missed opportunities! I can't find the UK prices as they're not available online from Selfridges but it is possible to order the brushes from BonBonCosmetics. I'm very taken with both the Cheek brush and small Cheek brush. You can find reviews of both the Cheek brush and Cheek brush S on Delicate Hummingbird.
I bought my first Hakuhodo brush a little while ago. I knew I would want more as soon as I took the plunge. There are a few that I'm quite interested in: the G544 Powder & Liquid brush and the 210 Blush brush, as well as several eyeshadow brushes. In fact there are more such as the S103 Pointed Blusher brush that I would like but soon as the prices go over £18 (changing to £15 on the 1st of November), I know that I will have to factor customs charges at this end. This works out as roughly $28 but obviously depends on the exchange rate. For lots of excellent reviews of the Hakuhodo brush line I recommend paying both The Non-Blonde and Delicate Hummingbird a visit.
I spotted the Lunasol brushes whilst looking for RMK on BonBonCosmetics. They look quite similar to the RMK brushes and equally tempting. The Cheek brush N is calling to me but as yet I haven't read any reviews of this range. I can hope the reviews are bad but I bet that's not the case!
I've seen the white, goat hair brushes from Shu Uemura pop up on a few blogs now. I don't know why I'm often drawn to white goat hair brushes. I went weak at the knees looking at the Tom Ford brushes simply because of the white hairs. Does this make me odd? The only one I can find on the Shu Uemura website is the Natural 18 brush. It looks very cute though and reminds me a little of the new Hakuhodo Powder & Liquid brushes.
Of course there are some lovelies that I want but I just can't have. I'd put Suqqu and Chickuhodo brushes in that category. Suqqu beacuse they're out of my league price wise and Chickuhodo because they don't do International shipping (sob). Of course, it's good to know your limits when imaginary shopping...
Do you ever indulge in fantasy shopping? Or do you find looking always leads to spending?
