| Beauty Wishlist | October '13

My gosh, I can't believe it's October already! This is going to be a very busy month for me. With uni starting to wrap up and new stock coming in at work I really don't know how I'm going to survive. To calm myself down a little, I decided go through my wishlist folder and pick out my most wanted for this month.

1. Holika Holika All That BB Cream
I don't know why, but I seem to have this endless list of BB creams. It doesn't matter whether or not I already have a million, the list keeps growing and I keep buying. Not sure if it's the gorgeous purple packaging or whether I'm just itching to try something form Holika Holika for the first time.

2. Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume
I never really took much notice of Marc Jacobs perfumes before, I think it was the weird, over the top flowers and ladybugs that kind of made me run in the other direction. I was staying at a friends place, getting ready to go out when she offered to let me use some. Surprisingly, I really liked it. I love the look of the black limited edition too. Sigh. Maybe for my birthday?

3. Missha's Time Revolution Night Repair Serum
I've been looking for a new anti-aging serum for a while now, and was attracted to Estee Lauder's Night Repair, unfortunately the huge price tag put me off completely. After hearing about this 'dupe' I've been really intrigued. The content has been modified with more natural ingredients and less possible irritants. It's double the size of Estee Lauder's and a quarter the price.

4. Benton's Snail Bee High Content Essence
I've had great success with my snail creams, they heal my acne super fast, but haven't tried bee venom yet. Apparently it's also great for healing acne and scars. It's not expensive either (especially on RoseRose), and would also love to try the rest of the Benton range while I'm at it.

5. Missha's Beautiful Style Tints
I've never tried a Korean lip tint before, and these Missha ones look gorgeous. It's not just the sleek packaging, I swear, but I love the look of the coral and red shades. It'll be interesting to see how it looks on my lips.

6. Illamasqua's Compliment Palette
I've been pining after some Urban Decay shadows for a while now, and have thought about trying out a cheaper option in the meantime. The colours are exactly what I'm after, especially the purple and brown!


  1. lol you know i have the missha time revolution so won't go on too much about that. i really do enjoy using it and it sinks into the skin quite well.

    i /just/ saw the illamasqua quads at sephora (they didn't sell them in canada for a long time) and i can see how you'd be lemming them.

    A Beautiful Zen

    1. I can't wait to try the night repair serum (soon!) :D

  2. I'm actually hoping to treat myself to the Marc Jacob's Honey perfume next month! I love the flowers and lady bug bottle designs (I'm a girlie girl at heart) - I want to collect them all :)
    The bee venom essence sounds interesting - I have a bit of acne scarring myself that I'd like to get rid of.
    Hopefully you'll be able to pick up some of these items this month!
