GImme Gimme Gimme (September)

Rather a small wishlist for September! Which is pretty amazing, given that August was ridiculous. In case you were wondering, these wishlists are literally my "window shopping" lists. I see stuff on the internet that I find interesting, and that I would like to try (or instantly covet like Midas and his obsession with gold), then I pin them, and at the end of the month (more or less) I compile them into a post. Since this is my 3rd "wishlist / fantasy shopping spree" there are some things from old lists that I have gotten, and I'll rundown whether or not they ended up being worth it.

Stuff I Covet

  1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Transylvania"
    I drove miles. MILES I tell you, to find a location that sells NYX near me. Canada, see, no Walgreens see. Even though I wanted to pull my hair out by the time I found the location that was open and carried the line, it was SO worth it. I couldn't find Transylvania in stock, but I picked up Abu Dhabi and Milan. OMG, so nice. They feel so great on the lips, they have staying power, the texture is great, the colors are great. Yes, just all kinds of yes to NYX for these.
  2. Rohto eye drops
    OK, you can't get these in Canada, I don't know why, guess they just aren't stocked here, but I've heard from more than one guru that they are awesome for getting rid of redness in your eye. I've since decided that you can have the most flawlessly executed eye makeup look on, and it will still look like shit, if your eyes are bloodshot, even in the slightest. Must have.
  3. Makeup Eraser
    I am a little skeptical about this. I mean, this thing would get FILTHY if you wiped your whole face off with it. I think its worth a try though. How great would it be to have everything come off without having to use a makeup remover?
  4. No Dark Shadows
    So, Touche Éclat is supposed to be phenomenal. And a bright and lively complexion goes a long way to making you look great. Even without a whole ton of makeup. Obvs I want this Touche Éclat nonsense, right? Except its crazy expensive, and honestly, I almost won't spend that much on a product ON PRINCIPLE. A cheaper, but equally performing alternative is what dreams are made of. That's what this is (apparently). Need. 
  5. Younique 3D fiber lashes.
    OMG, I don't have the time or inclination to apply false lashes everyday, but gatDAMN they make your eyes look great. Still want this. Someone GET IT FOR ME DAMMNIT!
  6. Soniclear
    I'm not getting any younger. I want this so bad. I need it to route out these pesky pores and shit. This might happen for Christmas though... maybe. 

Stuff I Bought

From this post.

  1.  Duo Brush-On Adhesive with Vitamins
    Everything I hoped it would be. Awesome. Get it.
  2. Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner
    Kind of meh. The gel is really dry, which is my beef with gel liner in general. This liner makes Baby Jesus cry, because it had so much potential, but didn't live up to it.
    I don't know, don't let this review bother you, try it yourself. Just don't be like me and lose the receipt. Sephora has a great return policy.

  1. MAC Cosmetics: Electric Cool Eye Shadow in “Gilded Thrill”
    I bought this weeks ago, but haven't actually used it yet. I can say though, that the glitter is EVERYTHING, and the texture, although bizarre, is compelling. I really can't wait to use it. I'm going to a wedding in a few weeks, maybe I'll use it then!

So you see? Even though I covet a lot, I really only jump in and become part of the big capitalist machine every once in a while. That's enough to assuage my guilt.

Speaking of guilt, I feel like I need to make it totally clear that NONE of these links are affiliate. I've been thinking about the blog, and what I want out of it. I don't need it to be my job, my sole source of income, and I feel really squidgy about pushing products and such on people. Absolutely NO judgement if you use affiliate links or anything, but I just don't feel like I can use them without feeling like a used car salesman. Weird, totally, but just how I feel.

That being said CLICK ON MY ADVERTS! :)

Keep in Touch!
