Beauty Wish List Woes

So I have a myriad of issues that I want solutions for. The prosperity of Humanity and world peace aside, I have dark under-eye circles from the seventh circle of hell and hair that looks greasy at the roots milliseconds after washing it, among other things.

So here is a bunch of products on my wish list (that is added to on a daily basis), that I am either waiting until pay day to purchase (or Christmas, next year).

Read on, and my apologies if this hurts your bank balance as much as it will mine.

Unicorn Hair by Lime Crime (Bunny $16.00)

The name includes the word unicorn, enough said, it also claims to be conditioning, you can leave this semi permanent hair dye in for up to two hours for more intense color, with no harming effects, and with shades like Dirty Mermaid and Sext, you can’t go wrong (and again unicorn!).

Hum Nutrition Wing Man Dark Circle Remedy Supplement ($25.00)

Now albeit it’s name is a mouthful, but it claims to get rid of those pesky dark under-eyes from the inside out, through liver detoxing with Silymarin, to be honest I’m not bothered how it does it as long as it works, as my crescent shaped dark patches are currently more akin to purple (from all the late night blogging), the fact that I like the packaging is a plus (hummingbirds are another fave).

SOL de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($45.00)

Being as my thighs and derriére are about as smooth as cottage cheese, if a moisturizer claims to firm my bum bum and has good reviews, bring it on. Apparently it smells heavenly and shimmers too, but all I care about is the super caffeine from the Amazon that is going to have me in a tiny bikini by summer (let the disappointment begin).

Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm ($68.00)

As previously discussed, my under-eye circles are a serious pet peeve, so anything that says it will “diminish the appearance” of them is my new best friend, now while the price tag is hefty (more a Christmas present to myself, or whatever your religious celebration of choice is), it’s also great for wrinkles and puffiness etc. which is an added bonus as at 30, with an ample amount of stress, the fine lines are creeping up on me (actually more like trotting), so to sum up, SOLD.

OUAI Dry Shampoo Foam ($ 28.00)

So yada yada, it has won awards, it claims to be like other dry shampoos, but on steroids, so shut up and take my money. I have balayaged (yes, I’ve made it a verb now, sue me) hair, which has not done it’s moisture or happiness levels any favors, but my roots are still as greasy as sin. I therefore try to space out my hair washing to not fry my ends further so bring on the anti-shower products.

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo ($23.99)

 Yet another of my beauty related pet peeves is brassy blonde hair, when I start to see the yellow undertones appear, I run for the hills, or start living in buns and hats (it’s not pretty), until I can get an appointment with my colorist (on my budget, this may be less about appointment availability as a lack of funds).
So when the reviews on a purple shampoo say “took me from yellow to white in one wash”, I’m ordering a crate.
Get on the waiting list for these babies now, and decide how you are going to pay for them later. What’s not to love? The brush handles are shaped like mermaid tails in vibrant colors, and with four different shaped face brushes, you’re covered from powder to contour, sign me up.
Been jonesing for this one for a while now, it’s an antidote for stressed skin! It claims to decongest, detoxify, and stabilize complexion, I’m all for all of those things, even though I’m not sure I need them, they sound like positive outcomes. Added to the ever growing list.
Lashes are everything to me, you know that if you were stranded on a desert island what would you take with you question? I’d take as much mascara as I could carry, I feel naked without it, and I’ve tried it all, lash extensions, serums, treatments, LVL. They all have their pros and cons, but you can never do without a good mascara. My go to has always been Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara, but I’m always on the market for a new fave, so here’s to hoping. Reviews are mixed claiming amazing results but some smudginess. If it’s as good as they say, bring on the smudge.

Rodan+Fields Lash Boost ($192.95)

Given the above explanation of my lash obsession, serums are a given. Now, I will give you that the price is extortionate, but if it does what it says it does, it’s well worth it. I’ve read reviews of lashes continuing to grow for four months straight of continual use, that’s unheard of in non prescription lash serums, and I like to justify it by telling myself I’ll get through less mascara (it’ll never happen, it’s an addiction).

Now if you refer back to my under eye dark circle dilemma, you’ll understand that I’m also never without my concealer (mental note to add that to my desert island stash), so whenever I hear about a good one, I endeavor to try it out. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t crease.

Let me know what’s on your wish list, but be kind, my total is already a whopping 550 dollars and change.

Happy reading,

XOXO
