Hardly anything new this month! Weird how I am pleased about that. I want to want less. I feel like I should want less. What a dichotomous existence, wanting to be less of a consumer, but wanting so much stuff. Must have ALL THE THINGS!!
I have an update for something from a previous wishlist:
When I heard this performed like an ultra high-end cosmetic, for a mid-range cost, I had to have it. I also am eternally on the prowl for a great undereye concealer. My take on it? Its OK. I don't regret buying it, its a nice little complexion enhancer, but its not miraculous. Its a very light coverage concealer at best, and I don't find that it really "brightens" anything, but I like it because it the perfect under eye treatment for when I am not doing a shitton of makeup. For example, if I am using my MAC pro longwear concealer, I can't wear it alone, because it would just be too conspicuous. But the No Dark Circles is OK all on its own. Light, blends well, nice texture.

Saw this on Instagram, and I was hooked. According to the Instagrammer, this is NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Abu Dhabi," and their liner "Peekaboo Neutral." So, I went to the store to find it. I literally had to search for a store that carried the line. Rexall, for my fellow Southern Ontarians, if you're wondering. I bought it, but it ain't what you see above. Its a lovely neutral, but its decidedly tan, not the pink you see above. Still totally rad. Just not dusty pink, which was what attracted it to me in the first place.
That being said, I highly recommend the Soft Matte Lip Creams from NYX, and I kind of want to go and buy the whole range of colors.
I'm really getting into lipliners. The cynical part of me says its because I am getting older, and developing little wrinkles around my mouth that causes my lipsticks to bleed. The optimist in my acknowledges that it is probably because I am wearing lipstick more lately, and I like to overdraw my top lip a smidge, and lip liners are made for that. Urban Decay, right? If they make it in a pencil, its gonna be good. And, its a nice soft rose-pink. I have a thing for soft pinks these days.
That's it for what I coveted for October. I already have something on my list for November, and its the 3rd, so, chances are good I will hate myself a little for my rampant consumerism by December.
Keep in mind I still really want the Soniclear, and the Younique 3D fiber lashes. Want. Them. Bad. The product-lust I have been harbouring for the Fiber Mascara is starting to get nuts. Like, I feel like I really NEED it. *shakes head*
