I’m not into all of that sending it out into the universe bullshit, but there are still so many brands I’d like to use before I’m old and wrinkled. If these guys don’t come to the table soon, I’d have to either (a) do more online shopping or (b) get into some serious travelling.
NARS is such a cult brand, and I have heard rumours – but at this stage all is unconfirmed. Obviously everyone else in the universe has now used their blush in cult shade Orgasm, but they have such a huge collection that I’m annoyed every time I go onto their website. I seriously covet The Multiple in a couple of shades – It’s a solid stick for cheeks, eyes, lips and even body; it looks like my dream highlighter blush combo. Then there are there award winning primers, foundations and eye shadows. See, now I’m annoyed again.
Butter London Nail Polish
They have lip gloss too, but I can’t be bothered about that. I also can’t tell you what would make this nail polish better than others, the packaging and colours just look great.
e.l.f. (eyes, lips & face)
This budget brand has cool-looking products starting at $1 in the US – not the crap stuff, but shimmer creams, eye shadow duos, etc. I am curious about the quality, but then brands like Essence, Catrice, LA Girl and Palladio has shown us that budget cosmetics can come in at decent quality too – your bound to find items you like from those ranges. I’d love to try their brushes, cream eye liner pots, and just about everything else I see on their website, mind you.
Such opulence. Their bath products look amazing, as does their baked eyeshadow palettes and lip stain pots. Oh, and the beautiful colours their cream eye liner pots are available in. Definitely towards the luxury end of the price range (as is NARS, fyi), but… sigh.
This Japanese brand holds such an appeal to me. I’d love to try their cleansing oils, which have pretty much earned cult status. According to the website, one bottle is sold every 7 seconds. I also understand that the Shu eyelash curler is better that any other, and their hand crafted brushes, eye shadow palettes and lip glosses have a good reputation too.
Yes, if you don’t have it yet you’re bound to have heard of the Naked and Naked 2 eyeshadow palettes. I also like the look of their eyelid primers, Glide-on eye pencils, Glide-on shadow pencils and concealer sticks.
For their LipSurgence lip tints, waterproof cream eyeshadow, solid cheek stain and BB cream/primer combo.
This brand has a ‘Return of Sexy’ palette with 15 wearable eyeshadow colours – I have a strong suspicion that if you have this one, you won’t need much else. Their Snow Bunny bronzer looks gorgeous, and the 3-way Lash Lining Tool needs a spot in my makeup bag.
Have I missed anything?
