Current Wish List

Heidi shared with you recently the products she has her eye on and I'm also interested in trying everything she chose. My last wish list update was in February. Since then the beauty industry has seen quite a few new releases.

Don't forget, you too can get your hands on these items via T.E.A.M Imports ( Just send them the link to the product and request a quote. Here are the things I'm lusting to try:

NARS Audacious Lipsticks 

"One stroke to unstoppable impact. 40 shades of charismatic color." I'm loving the nudes. Check out the video by The Beauty Professor.

As you know from my foundation series, I'm very interested in trying new ones. image

I've seen nothing but good reviews about these. I've really taken a keen interest to eyeliners recently. I think it's an easy way to add definition and/or a pop of colour to the eye without the hassle of blending eyeshadows. image

These look amazing! Y'all know I love brushes right? image

What's life without a little blush?

I can't choose between 07 and 08 :'( image

And of course, we're all eagerly awaiting the Holiday Sets from Tarte, Too Faced, Sephora Favourites, Laura Mercier, Benefit...everybody!

Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
