On the Lust List

It's been ages since I shared a wishlist type post. I try hard to be sensible about my cosmetic lusts these days, I know that many are just passing fancies so I will try to wait and see if the urge passes. My eyeshadow and nail polish ban have helped a lot in that sense. Eyeshadows are quite clearly my biggest cosmetic weakness.

It's impossible to be sensible all the time though, I still have a wishlist a mile long and these are a few of the items that keep making their way back to the top.



Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted
I'm not sure exactly when my interest in Just Skin started but it was cemented when I read Get Lippie's recent thoughts. I'm coming towards the end of my RBR Tinted Moisturiser and I think this might make a good replacement. The only sticking point is the price, at £55 for a tube it isn't cheap. I'll have to be in the right mood to cave on this one.

Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint Blusher in Poppy
I promised myself I would get one of the Creme Fresh Tints when Le Metier returned to the UK. Although I initially considered Tenne, I decided that Poppy would probably be a better colour choice for me. It seems to be very popular shade and I keep missing it when Zuneta re-stock.



Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colours and Perfect Rouge Lipstick
I've never tried any Shiseido cosmetics but I go through regular phases of researching colours and filling a virtual basket. I first spotted the cream eye colours on Reigning Beauties and they have been popping up on my radar ever since. Lipglossiping recent Shiseido post set me off again. As an aside, I couldn't find the Accentuating Color Stick anywhere online so I'm assuming it's counter only. I will definitely try one of the Shimmering Cream Eye Colours once my ban is over but I can't decide whether to purchase the Perfect Rouge lipstick in Titian before then or wait. My less sensible side says buy it NOW!

Hera Sun Mate Daily
This is a fairly recent fancy and my interest in this Korean sunscreen was sparked by a YouTube video by meejmuse. I can't deny that being hard to get hold of makes it somehow that much more appealing. I found it on Ebay but at just over the £15 customs threshold and I'm nervous of getting stung with the dreaded Post Office fees. I need to do more research to find out if it's worth the risk.

Sunday Riley Eyeshadow in Burnt Eggplant
Sunday Riley eyeshadows keep popping up in blog posts by my favourite American bloggers. Burnt Eggplant looks nothing like a burnt aubergine but it does sound like my kind of colour, *cough* taupe *cough*. When Marcia from Beauty Info Zone compared it to Style Snob and Satin Taupe I knew that it needed to go on my list. I'm nothing if not predictable!
 
Chanel Loose Powder in Pêche
This is another old interest that keeps on cropping up. I will admit to being rubbish when it comes to powdering my face. I prefer my skin to look natural and powder often makes me feel too made up. I also worry that it will accentuate my lines. However, I would like to give my makeup more staying power, especially as I can't touch up at work and I wonder if powder in the key. In my mind this one will work magic, particular because the shade I really want (#50 Pêche) has been discontinued!


What's on your wishlist at the moment? Are you torturing yourself with thoughts of hard to get items?

  1. I had the Chantecaille applied but unfortunately the darkest shade was a little bit light, but it did feel very nice.
    I recently bought the NARS tinted moisturiser and am very impressed with it.

    I am lusting after some of the Dior Summer at the moment and Kevin Aucoin Valentina lipgloss which I tried the other day in SpaceNK, such a gorgeous pink.

    1. What a shame the Chantecaille didn't come in a suitable shade. Maybe I should be looking at the NARS TM, I know quite a few people have got on very well with it.

      I'm going to have to look up Valentina now :D

    Nice list! I have the LMdB Fresh Tint in Poppy and it is very nice. Very pretty coralish blush to the cheeks, quite shimmery though. I was hoping to use it on my lips but I have quite deep red lips naturally and it is a bit too light/pink for me. Very pleased with the purchase though.

    1. I'm shocked to hear it's shimmery. I wasn't expecting that at all as Tenne has no shimmer at all. I'm going to have to go back and look more closely as swatches now. Thanks Claire!

    I am lusting after a tinted moisturiser, really want the RBR, but contemplating the LE one that has just been released. LE way more thrifty, but I have a sample of RBR and it is lovely ....

    1. I've not tried the LE but was a little put off by comments about it feeling quite heavy and greasy. The RBR doesn't feel that way at all. I know I really need to check the Chantecaille in person to confirm that I like the texture. It could be a lemming killing moment!!

  4. I didn't like the NARS TM, but love Laura Mercier. Happy to send you a small sample if you want to try?

    1. That's really kind of you. I had the Laura Mercier TM applied once in John Lewis in MK and didn't love the feel. Which reminds me, I think we ought to plan a little MK shopping trip once my exam work is over :D

  5. I'm with you on the Chantecaille Just Skin. I'm currently awaiting a couple of samples as I'm miles away from anywhere that stocks it. I'm justifying the price as it's a 50ml tube - I wouldn't hesitate to spend £30 to £40 on a 30ml foundation, so £55 for 50ml seems okay to me :)

    1. I agree that it is a generous size, plus I think it will double as a sunscreen. You can see I'm working myself up to it ;). I know I need to go in and try it in person before splurging though. If the texture is wrong it could be terrible error.

      I know I always do this to you Gillian but I would be very interested to hear what you think once you've tried the samples :) x

    2. No problem at all. I'm not sure when I'm going to get them because they've got no sample pots at the moment, but I'm hoping they'll be here next week.

      I've now added Le Metier de Beaute Creme Fresh Tint Blusher in Coral Nymph to my wish list, thanks!

      I don't know whether I should admit to this or not, but I really have a proper wishlist set up on an Excel spreadsheet ... and it's colour-coded too *hangs head in shame*

  6. I thought I was in pretty good shape until I read Visionary Beauty's review of Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20, now I'm in heavy lust!

    1. I totally understand where you're coming from. I read VB's post and was instantly drawn. Have you tried any Omorovicza? I've been using their Balancing Moisturiser and Radiance Serum for the past month and I'm really impressed.

      Delete
    2. I saw VB's review, too and almost wish I hadn't. I feel safe for now, but I have added the Omorovicza Complexion Perfector at least to my mental list.

  8. I don't find Poppy to be shimmery so it surprises me that someone said that. I do think it's quite glowy though.

    When I first got Burnt Eggplant the color didn't thrill me in the pan but it wears so beautifully. And it's very much like Satin Taupe but without any frost. Thanks for the mention. I appreciate it!

  9. Im lusting mainly after skincare as its a necessary investment...the ubiquitous beauty elixir at the top of my list, mainly for its calming properties. I had a spritz in John Lewis and I immediately felt so calm.

  10. I just shamefully satisfied my lust by purchasing the Chanel Le Blanc skincare line.
