Wish List: My Top 5 Makeup and Skin Care Items

I have some new items on my wish list. I've purchased items from my previous lists already, and this helps me keep track of wanted items. I've started a low-buy, and it's very strict in the amount of money I'm allowing myself to spend. I think the wish list posts will make me more aware and accountable. To be honest, I have failed miserably at every complete spending ban that I've attempted in my makeup life. However, I do very well with a low-buys and a set monthly amount. I'll post my low-buy and the plan I follow next week on the blog. Until then, here are the items I'm lusting after this week.

Laura Mercier Shimmer Effects Mini Caviar Eye Color Collection: I love these caviar sticks, and this seems like a nice way to try some different shades without the hefty price tag of $26 each.

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil: I received a small sample bottle of this in a recent order and have used nothing else. It is so light and refreshing unlike most cleansing oils. I have none of the oily residue either. I'm checking the ingredients with Bobbi Brown to make sure it doesn't contain mineral oil or parabens. I can't seem to find the full ingredient list on the website. However, I'm pleased with my sample. My dry/sensitive skin loves this!

Nars Blush in Day Dream from Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection: I need a new peachy shade and this does not look riddled with glitter.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Eye Cream: Another sample from an order. But, I really like this product. It does exactly what is says. I love the reduction in dark circles and puffiness. Also, it's free from mineral oil, parabens, fragrance and silicones. This will probably be my first purchase from this wish list.

 Snowberry Nourishing Exfoliator: I seem to be all about the skin care this time. I purchased a small size of this to try because I was intrigued by the idea of an organic/natural and good for the environment product. I don't use mechanical exfoliators often,but when I do this one is so gentle and does not cause burning or reactions. The full price is high at $43 for 2.5oz but compared to Kate Sommerville Exfolikate at $85 2.oz ,it's worth every penny and a budget buy.


  1. I have that Kiehl's eye cream and like it a lot - it puts my under eye area in much better condition when I use it at night.

    I also want that mini caviar stick set! It's so cute, and I love the caviar sticks.
