I Covet Thee(se)…
Ain’t January the worst?
I told myself that I will be implementing a 3 month spending ban of sorts (only breaking said ban to buy things of necessity like food, water..going out..ya know..). We are already on day 10 and I am already kicking myself, partly due to the fact that I basically need ALL THE THINGS.
I’ve composed a wishlist of sorts to remind me of the staples that I can hopefully pick up within the next couple of months or so. All the products above come from some of my favourite brands – as you can tell by the amount of items present, I don’t need much for now – stress being on the ‘NOW’ part as I guarantee that’ll be due to change within the next week or so!
I realised the other day that I haven’t made a purchase from MAC in over a year: #DaFuq? When making purchases from there, I normally only stick to their lipstick, with two of my favourites being Ruby Woo
and Touch. Ruby Woo
and I initially didn’t get on at first, what with her being dry as fuck on my lips and whatnot, but we found a comprise and now we are the best of friends.
Touch is an all round amazing nude lipstick that’ll suit people of all skintones. It matches my skin tone PERFECTLY; no need for me to smudge or blend with other lipsticks or liners, and it doesn’t make me look like a crackhead, which is always a bonus.
have recently released their Illuminating Nudes Collection
and this gorgeous Desert Rose blush is part of it, and I want it – I want it NOW! I realised that I don’t have a lot of blush in my makeup drawer – this needs to be corrected asap.
Now I love me some Balance Me
. Their products have always agreed with my skin type especially during the Winter, particularly the Radiance Facial Oil
which I like to use underneath my moisturiser, and the Super Moisturizing Body Wash
, which smells amazing. Both can be found on Look Fantastic.
Last but not least are the lovely guys over at Makeup Revolution and their amazing products. I just want ALL THE EVERYTHING.
I love Makeup Revolution – the quality and prices of their products are amazing, and they keep coming out with bigger and better things – one of these things being the #LipHug lipsticks, a collection of highly pigmented, intense shades, and there are at least 12 colours there that I need now.
So there we are, my essentials. Let’s see how long we last before I give in and nab the lot, eh?
