002 items i'm lusting after

hello hello. im sorry for the lack of posts...i haven't really gotten anything significant lately for a post. im trying to be a good little girl and not spend so much money. i do have a few misc purchases i've made in the last month...which i will post up next. i was going to do a small post on how i wear vegas volt, but i will include that in my next post.

meanwhile...this "items im lusting after at the moment" thing seems to be a trend with me, so this will be a common post i'll do randomly at times. so onward with the second edition...

benefit crease less cream eyeshadow in 'birthday suit'

i swatched this at sephora many times...put it in my bag many times...and took it out many times. sigh. usually when i am that wishy-washy with a product i usually end up going back and buying it eventually. i really love this color. to me it looked like a nude metallic color. great for lazy days when i just want to swipe a color all over my lid and brush some mascara on and go.

mac paint pot in groundwork

hmm i wonder if you sense a pattern here? i've really been on the cream shadow craze just because application is short, sweet and easy. i love the paint pots...i own two of them and am very satisfied with their performance. i also love it because i can skip the step of applying primer because the PP does the same job. i've been wanting this toned down subtle greyed brown color for a while. again...i always swatch it when i visit mac...but somehow always end up with other things when i check out...

nars blush in exhibit a

since nars' desire is one of my favorite blushes i own, i really want to dabble in this blush. thanks to desire...i will never be afraid of those scary looking colors in the pan again!

peter thomas roth max correction pads

i am still in the process of trying to refine and make my pores smaller. these are supposed to show dramatic results when it comes to cleaning up your pores and making blackheads disappear. yes please! but the price of these are hefty...$36 for 60 pads.

dr. hauschka clarifying toner

this is also supposed to refine the appearance of large pores. i have only heard good things about dr. hauschka and i really want to try out the brand.

that is the majority of what i have been really eyeing. what have you been lusting over? do any of you have these products already? i'd really like to hear thoughts on dr. hauschka and PTR since i have never tried either of the brands.


  1. this is a really great idea for a blog post.. products I am lusting over, I should do something like this.. some products that I am lusting over:
    - revlon just bitten lip stain
    - d&g light blue perfume
    - mufe hd foundation
    - benefit coralista blush

  2. @ justine

    i have coralista as a part of a little set benefit had at ulta. it is an ok blush, but i dont think it is worth the price tag. i'm glad you like the idea :)
