Wish List | What I'm lusting after

It's short and simple. They are not needs, they are wants. Well maybe the Magic Cream is a need (I'm convincing myself it is!)

  1. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer. This champagne highlight, although I may have a similar dupe for it from a 2011 MAC collection Chez Chez Lame (You can see it in action here) Is it really a dupe though? From looking at other swatches of both online they seem quite similar but can Mary-Lou Manizer a little bit more finely milled? This is something I know I can miss out on, but I don't think I should.
  2. NARS Creamy Concealer. I've become a concealer addict lately. I feel I don't always have to go for high coverage foundations and just go in with the concealer in the areas that I need it in. I'm a victim of reading as soon as someone raves about a product I just want to try it out. I've finished my collection lasting perfection concealer and I've about a quarter of a bottle left of my MAC Pro Longwear concealer. My concealer love affair must continue!
  3. Real Techniques Nic's Picks. I'm rather looking forward to seeing these in shops. I'm a huge fan (as well as every other make up lover) of these brushes. The quality is unbelievable and they are soo cheap compared to other brands. There are so many make up artists that use the Real Techniques brushes - they are popping up everywhere.
  4. Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Cream. This infamous cream from the iconic make up artist Charlotte Tilbury. For years she's been known in the fashion and make up world for her "magic cream". It's a formula that Charlotte has been mixing for years and she's been using on models for over 20 years. It has anti-aging properties and skin boosting loveliness. It's been raved about from everyone that's tried it and well I just need to know what the hype is all about. With it having an SPF 15 (something I find I tend to use a lot of moisturizers without SPF, it's not intentional - I just realize  after I'm half way through the bottle), it's one less step for me, as over the summer I got in the habit of adding an extra SPF over my moisturizer before my make up. Retailing at €90 is very expensive for a moisturizer, but is it more than just a moisturizer? This is something I might have to wait till Santa comes.

I'm torn | Cleansing Brushes

There's been a huge hype about cleansing brushes. I first got my manual brush from a friend (from the Body Shop) as part of a gift for Christmas many moons ago. First I didn't know much about it, but she raved on about how deadly it was. It was one of those things that I used "every so often" when I first got it but then I really got into using it as part of my routine.
