Today my post is about the products, videos and makeup looks that caught my attention this week.
For the last several days I have been browsing US beauty websites like a mad woman to figure out what products I need/want to get as my friend kindly agreed to get me some.
I am not going to post my whole wish list or everything that caught my attention but here is the new Cle de Peau Vintage Holiday Palette which some of you may like. But as it is CdP the price is not cheap – $125.
It’s a makeup from Gucci by Pat McGrath. And of course, I am waiting for Dior show…
Believe it or not, but it actually took me hours and hours to complete this list, as I had to think carefully about what products I really want or what products I actually need.
This is not really a wish list, but more of a shopping list of the products that I plan to buy in the near future. Of course, I could add more, but I’ve decided to be very strict with myself so every item got on the list after a lot of consideration and is very covetable…
So here is the list!
1. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, £26
I have almost finished my Benefit eye pencil and I am definitely getting an Hourglass one next.
2. Matte Eye Shadows Palette
I can’t decide if I should get the Too Faced Matte Eye Shadow Collection (£24.57 from Beauty Bay) or theBalm Meet Matte ($42 from the brand’s website, but they are in the process of creating a European shop, as well). I actually really love the eye shadow quality from both brands: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches, theBalm Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette Review and Swatches and the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review and Swatches so that’s a hard one. I only wish Too Faced palette weren’t so bulky. Maybe I should get both?!
3. Cream Blusher
That is probably the last thing that I need, considering how many I have but I’ve decided that I can get one, as a treat for myself. After a lot of consideration, I’ve chosen Stila’s Stila Convertible Colour (I actually can’t believe that I still haven’t tried it!) I think I’ll get Rose or Lillium (£15.12 from Beauty Bay)
Now this is the category of the products that I need. There are a lot of skincare products that I want and the list is endless but these
I already made 2 posts about NYWF Spring 2010:

“The idea for the tattoos stemmed from Kate and Laura’s desire to celebrate makeup as art not only for the face, but also for the body in a similar way that Indian culture uses henna. They want women to look at makeup as an accessory for an outfit the way you would a bracelet or a necklace,” said Chantel Miller.
I’ve realized that I hardly ever visit makeup counters these days. I do 90% of my beauty shopping on-line. I don’t have to leave the house, can think carefully about what to get, no pushy sales assistants and I could really go on and on…
There are of course some disadvantages in on-line beauty shopping but they are so small compared with the benefits that I don’t even count them.
I know that a lot of my readers are also fans of on-line shopping so I try to share some great deals I come across.
It is very difficult to choose but I am definitely getting these
Can you believe that it’s the first day of summer?
I was so excited about summer as a teen and as a uni student because of the huge summer break but these days I am not such a huge fan. Obviously I don’t have a 2 months of vacation and I don’t like the heat. But there is always something nice to look forward to, right?

By the way, did you plan your summer vacation? Looks like I almost did. Why almost? Because I am not yet 100% sure but, at last I’ve left only several variants to choose from, out of the numerous propositions.
I still need to get a new swimming suit and it’s so hard to choose…
