One of the dangers of being an avid reader of blogs, be they fashion, beauty or interior design, is that you are bound to develop a very long wish list , so long that it makes your wallet shudder every time you even think about it . Well considering I have one of these enabling machines I tought I would share a few of the products currently on my wish list and continue spreading the disses. SORRY NOT SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Starting with skin care , one of my all time obsessions are lip balms. Since I have very dry lips I have tried my fair share of lip balms and this latest one from Bite Beauty is supposed to be amazing. Well it isn`t exactly a lip balm it is in fact a lip mask which you are supposed to apply in the evenings and sleep with on. I have high hopes for it and my dry lips really need it.(link)
The second skin care item on my wish list is a chemical exfoliant toner, so it doesn’t have to be this one , there are a few brands out there that have these sort of tonners , the PIXI Glow Tonic is another one which has great reviews. The reason for my chosing the Mario Badescu apart from getting great reviews is actually a bit of national pride , I don`t know if you know this but Mario Badescu is a Romanian brand just like Anastasia Beverly Hills ( yeah the Beverly Hills might indicate otherwise but the queen of eyebrows and the founder / creator of the brand is Romanian and we even have a few of her brow salons here in Bucharest). Getting over that little fact of the day , these tonners are supposed to gently exfoliate the skin ( great for sensitive skin) and help with getting rid of discoloration from spots. (link )
Moving on to makeup I am not hugely into eye shadow , I have really small eyes and my makeup focuses more on a bold lip ( since it is one of my favorite features I try to accentuate that) and the eyes I keep simple with a natural slightly light shade and lots of mascara . Anyways I have a couple smaller pallets mostly by Too Faced but I have decided I need to invest in a larger nudes palette along the lines of the Naked pallets . I decided on the Lorac Pro since it seems to have the best shades for my skin tone and a good mix of both mate and shimmery shadows. Plus it is for sure a cult favorite amongst beauty bloggers.

Moving on to what is probably the most luxurious brand on the market and that is Tom Ford. As I have mentioned before I am definitely a lip girl and I do enjoy an expensive lip product and what is more luxurious than a Tom Ford lipstick . This purchase is going to have to wait a bit since it isn`t easy to justify a 50$ lipstick even for a lipstick obsessed like me. (link)
Lastly I have a product I am surprised I don`t already own and that is a Beauty Blender . I have tried a few wanna be dupes since we can`t get it here in Romania but I wasn’t pleased with any of them so I decided enough is enough and I will have to take the plunge and find somewhere online to order it.

My final item on this wish list is a perfume , well actually two perfumes the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Perfumes , that even though I have never smelled I am obsessed with, and it is all because of the blogging community that have been raving about both of these fragrances. Next time I find my self in a Duty Free (yeah you guessed it , you can`t get these in Romania either , do you see a recurring trend here?) I will have to look for them. (link)
