2012 Wish List

Monday 2 January 2012

Hey Ladies,

Each year I like to do a list of my most coveted products for the year ahead (so far most of them I haven't stuck to!) This year I will be different, yes I'm actually having a New Years resolution to actually buy things! So I thought if I picked 12 things that's one a month (duhh) so easily achievable! I have such high achievements in life I need to fulfil don't I?

Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation - £26.50
Heard so much about this for being amazing at covering dark circles, if it can tackle mine then it will be a miracle.

Georgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation - £32.50
Water based, satin matte & medium coverage this sounds a lovely foundation & I've not tried any Georgio Armarni makeup so I think this is a good place to start.

Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Powder - £31.50
I have been recommended this quite a lot & it's always been on my wish list but the price has always put me off purchasing it, 2012 will be the year I bite the bullet.

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder - £31
Like the Chanel powder I have been recommended this quite a lot, it is a mineral foundation powder which I personally love to set my makeup with, currently I use the Bare Minerals Matte so it will be interesting to compare the two.

Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Foundation - £42.50
Since the moment I heard about this foundation I have wanted it, yes all these face products may seem a tad too much in one year but sometimes my skin goes through oily patches (the Georgio Armani & Laura Mercier powder will be for these times) & sometimes its dry which the Creme Smooth Foundation will come good for me hopefully, at £43 it is going to be painful but hopefully worth it for the hydrating & skin smoothing formula.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment - £27.00
I have been needing a new eye cream for ages & I have the driest eyes in the world so this one has always popped up when I've asked for recommendations on Twitter. It is supposed to be incredibly rich so will be my night time eye cream & my face serum can be sufficient for under my makeup during the day.

Models Own Jucy Jules - £5.00
Bit of a cheap one for the list so completely achievable (she says) but this glitter polish is basically Mac 3D silver pigment in a nail polish, holographic glitter on your nails. I don't think I need to say anything else.

Violent Lip Tattoos - £12.00
These have intrigued me from the moment I saw them, tattoo's for the lips is a genius idea & one i'd totally wear on a night out, I can't decide between the leopard print or the sparkly light pink though.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy - £23.00
Another product I've heard so much about, I tend to wear sheer hydrating lipsticks more than others so this one will probably get a lot of use which is handy if you're paying £23 for a lippy.

Laura Mercier Brow Definer - £16.50
My brow obsession is going through a revival since I finished my Mac Impeccable Eye Brow Pencil (which is amazing) I want to try other products before buying another just to make sure there are no better ones & what better place to start than Laura Mercier.

Illamasqua Brow & Lash Gel - £11.50
I've been wanting to purchase a brow gel for a while but my ELF one doesn't seem to want to run out so this is on hold until it does,  it's supposed to be fantastic at holding the brows in place, I just wish Illamasqua did it in different colours (mainly so the brush doesn't go a horrible colour from the brow colour it will be on top of)

So there's my list for 2012 you know if the earth doesn't fall apart like it's supposed to! (not that I believe that nonsense) Have you tried any of the products if so what do you think? Am I wasting my time?

I think i'd be happy with a total spend in the year of £259 but lets face it like thats ever gonna happen, but it's a great place to start!


  1. Lovee Armani's lasting silk foundation & Chanel rouge coco shine in Boy, great products & I use them almost everyday! :)


  2. I'm going to start posting wishlists too, it's such a great way to keep track of your purchases and really helps to get the items you want, instead of spending on silly little things! The Chanel lippie is on my list too, it seems amazing.
    Love your blog, I'm following. <3 :)

  3. i also want everything on your list lol, the rouge coco shines are amazing :D


  4. The laura mercier mineral powder is gorgeous. I touch up my makeup with this throughout the day and it makes my skin look amazing. As a foundation, I prefer the Bare Minerals as its more coverage, but I love the LM one as a powder to finish my makeup better.


  5. as you asked for advice on twitter i thought i'd give my opinion on the estee lauder :D

    if i were you i wouldn't buy it, i have EXTREMELY bad skin and only use it on redness on my cheeks, i have used it under my eyes before and it was way too thick and yuck. i think you might find it too thick and opaque for under the eyes. i also have tried the laura mercier creme smooth and it is not long lasting at all!!xx
