Beauty Wishlist and a Not-so-Great Blush

In a Russel Brand voice...Exciting. I made this beauty wishlist and then literally five minutes later whilst googlereader-ing I saw on Catherine's blog that next month Glamour magazine will be giving away FREE benetint, posietint, and high beam! I'm going to be ruthless in my little Asda I tell you. Those slow people using the self serves better watch out....*shakes fist*

1) Benefit Posie Tint - I've wanted this for ages but at £24.50 I've stopped myself. It has heaps of excellent reviews but without seeing it in the flesh I don't really want to part with the dollar. My nearest benefit counter is quite a drive away so I cant easily go and try the products. Alsooo I get a little intimidated by the counter people, sometimes I feel they're a bit "'re only buying one thing?" Anyway I will now ponder not! Come the 9th of June I shall be grabbing myself a freebie.

2) Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua - I really want to try this. I've got a bit obsessed with having flawless skin and covering my rubbish redness at the moment and after hearing Fleurdeforce describe it as a sort of "second skin" I wanted to purchase. Shame its £31.65 in Debenhams. I cannot justify this unless my wages go up, and I dont think that's going to happen.

3) Benefit Bad Lash Waterproof mascara - huge brush gives me huge lashes. I love this product and mine is about to run out.

4) Eyeko graffiti eyeliner pen - I want me some cat eyes please. My own attempts with liquid liner make me more Cat Slater.

5) Clinique Redness Solutions Urgent Releif Cream - My redness makes me cringe, which unfortunatly makes me more red. Double the cringe. This product will be mine one day and it will be my saviour.

6) Benefit Benetint - I could pretty much type number 1 all over again here

7) Mac Surf Baby lipstick - I don't actually want purple lips but the hibiscus shade looks lovely. Red but not overly red, a definite day and night shade.

8) Moraccanoil - If you've read a few of my posts you probably think "stop going on about your hair" (i get that a lot) but it's actually depressing me at the moment. I've gone from bleaching it every month and having white locks to an awful, yellowy, two toned mess. I blame Toni & Guy who've told me that if I want it long, this sacrifice I must make. I've had this product used on me a couple of times and it leaves your hair mega soft and mega shiny, perfect for anyone with straw barnetts like me

and now for something I don't like very much....

This is becoming quite a wordy post for me. Although I've just thought adding this on the end might finish off rather bitter. Oh well this product has made me bitter!

As if my Accessorize blush has cracked, I haven't even been carrying it around anywhere. It's been sat in my makeup bag which gets moved from one room to another once a day! I know I could still use it but it's a bit of a hassle, it crumbles everywhere and leaves a pink mess. Accessorize I feel cheated out of £4.00.

Has this happened to anyone else?


  1. Oh my goodness, I feel sorry for your blush! It ruins my day when I accidentally drop a powder compact and it cracks in pieces :(

    Lol for Benefit, I've read numerous times that their sales assistants are so pushy with their products... As for Benetint, you could try instead the Body Shop's cheek stain- it's a staple in my makeup bag and I love it dearly!

  2. well, in my case, it always happened on my pressed foundation..

    by the way i love your wish list

  3. that happened to me to but it was with their eyeshadows though :/

    i've been to 3 different benefit counters and the sales assistants have all been really nice and not pushy a all and i love Benetint and Posie Tint!
    oh and i cant wait for the Glamour magazine !! gonna get me 3 copys :L

  4. Poor blush :( The benefit positint i think on glamour magazine around june they are going to give some benefit goodies. I think is benefit posietint, beneting and high beam small sizes. One per issue.

  5. I loveee benefit posietint!

  6. I'm so excited for the Benefit freebies :)

    I've already got a small sample of Posie Tint and adore it, you'll love it :)

  17. Thanks for the comment darling!! I love these picks.. definitely loving Benetint on cheeks/lips combo for a wind-flushed look!

    PS i recently read a blog about re-shaping eyeshadow that had crumbled... I'm sure it can apply for blush too! There's a way! I just can't remember how :X <3

  18. OH NO - I've been wanting to try that blusher, what a shame! You should DEFINITELY send these pictures to customer services or something though, I'm sure you'd get some sort of compensation ;)


  19. On the other hand, this is valid for those individuals who have work with them and are sufficiently proficient of persuading the banks that they can reimburse the advance easily over the time of the advance reimbursement plan. Be that as it may, for a sure segment of borrowers it turns out to be marginally hard to profit auto credits since they don't have a relentless salary or an occupation history to demonstrate their pay and in this manner demonstrate their reimbursement ability to the loan specialists.
