Wish List Update

Recently I saw a video from Chelsea Garay with this title and I thought that was a brilliant idea.


I've done a few Wish List posts here and I don't think I've ever updated you in this fashion. Let's fix that 😉 Today we're going to go over my first Wish List post; what did I buy? What was worth it? What is too expensive and I'm still dreaming? You get the gist. Be sure to click the links provided if you want more information.

September 2013

Lorac Pro Palette 

Bought it. Liked it. Barely used it tbh. Sold it. This palette is an excellent staple for eyeshadow lovers. Thing is, I'm only now appreciating eyeshadow palettes 😑

Hourglass Immaculate Foundation

This is a funny story. I bought this in New York. Shade matching was a bit of a task cause yuh know the lighting in Sephora is terrible. Yuh shouldn't buy foundation without testing it first anyway since you don't know if it will oxidize. Anyho, I got 'Sable' and applied it over the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. To quote the great Seth Xcel: ERRAH! The foundation refused to blend over such a matte primer. Would yuh believe I haven't tried it since? The company changed its packaging and all since den. Sigh.

Guerlain Terracotta Four Seasons Bronzer

'08 Ebony' #issamust for us melanin rich folk. And now I feel bad for telling you that since these appear to be discounted. The main gripe I have with Guerlain products is that they're so heavily scented. 

Tom Ford blushes

In 2013 I said I must have one. I have three. Look out for swatches in an upcoming Stash Status post. 

Wayne Goss Brush Collection

I bought the 'Anniversary Set', the new 'Eye Set' and a couple others. They're definitely worth the money.


I was gifted my first bottle; I've finished that and bought another.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation (and Airbuki Foundation Brush)

The foundation is great; I recently decluttered it solely because the shade 'Rich' was too red for me. The brush is excellent buffer.

Since my initial purchase I've accumulated four more of these in different finishes. While I loved the pigmentation and longevity of the original launch, the sheer version is my favourite. Urban Decay has since discounted this line 😢 but they still pop up at a discounted price on Hautelook1.

Finally, I wish I had a pair of Tod's Gommino Driving Shoes!

Let me know if this is something I should continue on the blog. What items have you checked off your Wish List?

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...


...this is almost done. I was using this in the shower and yuh know, time just got away.
