January Wish List

I promised myself 2013 would be a year where I really thought about where I was spending my money in terms of makeup. Anytime I want to purchase something, I have to think about it for at least a week before I am allowing myself to buy it. In 2012 I definitely purchased quantity over quality, however, that process did help me to really figure out exactly what makeup items suited me and what I reach for on a regular basis. These items I have included I know I would get a lot of use out of :)


1. Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutrals Palette - I have become such a huge fan of Matte Eye Shadows lately, and this palette came onto my radar because it is an all matte palette. The only downside is that this is only available from American Target.

2. Chanel Poudre Signee De Chanel - I really really want this highlighter, however I don't think I can justify this purchase as I only just got my amazing rose highlighter from Lancome...

3. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - Again with the matte eye shadows, I may get this if I can't get the Sonia Kashuk Palette. The thing I like about this palette is that it include 4 lighters matte neutrals, something that I reach for every day.

4. Mac Lipstick in Party Parrot - I am not missing out on this damn lipstick again! If I miss out on it in counters I will just pay the ebay price!

5. Illamasqua Blush in Naked Rose - This has been on my radar even since Kat mentioned it in her Decemeber Favourites, this looks like the perfect every day blush.

6. Loreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain - These have recently been hyped up online as a dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains, and I really want to try these out.

7. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter - This highlighter has been on my wish list forever and I vow to actually buy it sometime soon! I am after the colour pearl.

8. Burberry Pale Nude Eye Palette - Burberry Eye shadows get such amazing reviews and I am unlucky enough to not have a Burberry counter in Perth, so I think I will have to resort in ordering this online, eventually.

How are your spending habits going in 2013 so far?

  1. Seriously, buy Party Parrot, you will not regret it. It is so beautiful, I bought it when it was out in the Iris Apfel collection and man it is flattering and the best matte formula. Your wish list is awesome, we seem to have very similar tastes in things, I'm about to post a wishlist as well and those L'Oreal stains are on it, as are some things from the same Chanel collection :):)

  11. I've decided this year I'm going to go for quality over quantity and start buying higher-end products, that is if my boyfriend allows me to because he's put a ban on me buying makeup :(. I'd love the Naked Basics palette, and I'm probably going to allow myself to buy Party Parrot.

  12. Oo lovely wishlist, I too have made the 'quality over quantity' resolution for this year :). I'm about to order some of the L''Oreal stains off eBay, just need to decide on which colours! Have you found anywhere good online to buy Burberry eyeshadows without extortionate shipping? They have been on my wishlist for soooo long! Xx

    1. Nordstorm, using Price Usa as a shipping forwarder is probably your best bet, that's the road I'm going down :)

  15. I'd love everything on this list, the Chanel highlighter looks gorgeous. I'm also planning on buying a bit more carefully this year, I bought so many pieces in 2012 that I used once then got put into my collection and haven't been thought about since lol x

  26. Fantastic list. I can't wait for Party Parrot to be released, and I have a few of the L'Oreal stains making their way to me right now.

    I've spent a ton of money so far, but I'm happy with 99% of my purchases so it's all good.

  27. I'm on a buying ban for the first half of this year! I'm going to be going a little crazy after moving house though!

  28. I've been eying off the Naked Basics palette too and finally went for it today, ordered it off beautybay.com for $30! Let me just tell you right now, 7 days of waiting for that package to arrive is going to kill me! :)

    Love your wishlist!
