EXTREME-LEMMING: WISHLIST (a.k.a STUFF I DON'T REALLY NEEEED BUT W.A.N.T) + HAUL (ANOTHER 'DON'T NEEED BUT W.A.N.T')


Aug24

You know, I REALLY should have my nose buried in my readings but my mind is wandering everywhere else so I thought I should consolidate a wishlist and sort of "get it out of my system".  Or it could entirely backfire and make me crave for them even more ... oh well, shall take a chance with that! :P 

 

Of course, a lot of the lemmings are brought on by swatches and nice photos we see on several blogs, most notably on Supra-Lemming-Mothership Temptalia, and there's a good chance I might skip some stuff on the wishlist when I see them in person, either because #1) I decide to be sensible and not nutsy; #2) I am 'meh' about how it swatches on me or #3) because the bank account is up in arms, protesting away.  Most likely, Reason #2 and #3 will come out trumps :P

 

 

 

Here goes!

 

(Note: I've added links to Temptalia's reviews for easy reference also :D)

 

 

 

Sigma Brushes - F35, F25 and F05

 

 

 


 


 


 

I don't have any tapered blending face brushes at the moment and I've read a good number of rave reviews on the F35 and F25, as well as the MAC counterparts.  As for the Small Contour F05 ... well, I just want it! I've been using the Sigma F30 Large Powder Brush consistently and I really like how soft and fluffy it is so I am fantasising about applying blush with the F05 :P 

 

 ********************************************************************

 

 

 

 

MAC! 

 

From the Venomous Villain (VV) Collection, I'm really really really keen on the 2 mineralised eyeshadows, MY DARK MAGIC (Purple-Pink) and SHE WHO DARES (Blue-Green), pictured below.   I have been a fan of MAC's mineralised eyeshadows for quite a bit and unlike many who find them troublesome, fall-out prone, gritty, I really enjoy using them (I just counted and I have 12! 9 duos (various collections), 2 singles (Style Black) and 1 quad (Colour Craft) ... that's not a bad thing right? Pls tell me I haven't been bad ...

 

  

 


  

Temptalia's review and swatches of the Maleficent sub-collection is available here

 

 

 

 

************************************************************

 

I'm also very interested in TOXIC TALE lipstick from the Evil Queen sub-collection from MAC's VV collection.  I've been looking out for nice, opaque coral lipsticks but so far, those that I currently have, pull either a little reddened (like MAC Viva Glam Cyndi) or a pinked (like OCC Lip Tar in Grandma and Chanel Rouge Allure in Genial).  From Temptalia's swatch, Toxic Tale looks like a strong orangey-coral and I hope it will show up on me like a straight-up coral  

 


 

 Toxic Tale Lipstick swatch is on the right 

 

***************************************************************** 

 

 

 

From the same sub-collection, I'm also itching to swatch BITE OF AN APPLE BLUSH.  I really don't NEED another blush but it looks soooo pretty in the swatch! Then again, I don't NEED any of the stuff on my wishlist either but ... never mind, let's not go there....

 ******************************************************************************  

And I have Viva Glam CYNDI lipstick, so I should also get hold of the matching lipglass, right? Why deny the pairing? Hee heee ... but it IS very pretty and I can imagine layering it atop several lipstick shades I already own!  


  Temptalia's review / swatches of the Viva Glam lipglasses are available here 

 

**********************************************************************

And then we have the Urban Decay Palettes.  I remember promising myself not to get all excited over UD's arrival in Singapore and practically within week I saw it at Sephora, the UD Deluxe Eyeshadow palette came home with me. The same thing with the Alice In Wonderland palette (@ Iris and Sophia - which I have been using by the way! :P).  Ditto for the NAKED Palette ... 

 

 

When I first saw photos of it, I thought it was very pretty but somehow, I didn't "feel" too much for it since I traditionally shy away from nuetral shades.  Then with the arrival of my SLEEK Makeup palette in STORM, I decided to try out the bronzey, goldy neutrals with a darker bronze brown crease and decided I quite liked how it looked.  And I used all the more neutral shades in the AIW palette and again quite liked how it turned out.  Many more swatches and photos of the NAKED palette later, I want one too! It helps that the shades are mostly pearlised / metallic looking, which really appeals to me!

 ******************************************************************** 

 

 

 

And of course, this is a no-brainer! I LOVE the colour selection here! This I W.A.N.T!!! 

 

 Temptalia's swatches / review of the UD BOS III is available here

 

Of course, looking at all the UD palettes I have (shall have? optimistic much?!), I think I shall have a life-time supply of eyeshadows in SMOG and SIN :P

 

 ********************************************************************** 

And finally, perhaps one of the most sensible things on my wishlist and something I definitely NEED is the MUFE CAMOUFLAGE CREAM  in ORANGE (I somehow couldn't find a photo of it in Orange though)

 

 
 

Given my dark undereye circles, I realised that using a orange-toned corrector underneath my concealer works better and prevents the concealer from looking greyed out.  Currently, I use BOBBI BROWN's Corrector in DARK PEACH but I realised that given it creamy consistency, I can only use it with certain types of concealers like the MUFE Full Coverage concealer and my others from MAC which are also a little creamy have been neglected (since creamy + creamy = slip and slide).  The MUFE CAMOUFLAGE CREAM has a stronger orange tone and a thicker consistency which likely will not let the other concealers slip around.  The only problem? The MUFE Camouflage Cream in Orange has been OOS at MUFE for the longest time and I've just left my name and number with them again this morning.  Hopefully, it will arrive in the upcoming shipment. It IS available in the 5-pan Camoflage Cream set though, but the 5-pan set has other shades which I am a little afraid to mix and match myself.  The other alternative is MAC's CORRECTOR in Orange but unfortunately, that belongs to the PRO line which I currently have zero access to. 

 

 

 

 

 ********************************************************************** 

Ohhhh .... and like I said, I don't NEEEED some of the stuff on my wishlist? Well, here's just one itty-bitty reason why ....

  

 

When ordering during the spree I held, I really wanted to pick up the ORIGINAL and SUNSET palettes but convinced myself otherwise and decided that I should try the palettes for myself and see if I like the texture, etc.  Unlike NARS blushes which I had the fortune of trying Orgasm before I went on a NARS rampage, I hadn't really swatched any of the SLEEK palettes myself.  So after I tried ACID, CIRCUS and STORM, I was kicking myself for not picking up the ORIGINAL and SUNSET palettes.  Opportunity came by through an acquaintance headed there and I decided to politely request for a CP (hee hee) of (only) the ORIGINAL palette (I thought not to push my luck!).  Boy, have I zero-regrets! I honestly really like how the Sleek palettes apply (I usually use them with a wet brush) and am super thrilled to hear that a kapow LE palette (somewhat like the LE GRAPHITE palette) should be released soon! Wheeeeeeeee!  

 

*********************************************************************** 

 Ok, so that concludes my terribly terribly long wishlist ... and we're not even talking about the Holiday 2010 collections yet! *grimace* So I really should be sensible with this current wishlist cos I DO need to eat, pay for petrol and parking, handphone / broadband bills, and save money for a rainy day!!! Haha!   

Well, I've shared my current wishlist and my latest acquisition ... what's on your wishlist and have you made any giddy-inducing hauls recently?

LadyDyana: You know, practically all the items that are mentioned in my wishlist are not available in Singapore yet. I mentioned that I'm lemming the NAKED palette after looking at more photos and swatches and having used other neutral shades I already own.

Elaine: I think it should be - according to Temptalia, Gaga and Cyndi should be available till Jan 2011? Why not call MAC? Here's the MAC Tang's number: 62357718 :)

The SA at the Ion Sephora told me and Verlyn last week that they have no plans to bring in the BOS3 unless there are loads of requests! :(

Sophia: I think Viva Glam Cyndi glass looks pretty but I really doubt it will look decent on me. And I cannot wait for the UD palettes to make their arrival in Singapore. Wonder if it'll be a repeat of MAC Marine Life / Stereo Rose frenzy ... eeeeeee ... hope not!

Charlene: Whaaaaattt? That's not niiicceeee! I'm sure people are already salivating and fantasising about it, espy since there are new shades in it, notwithstanding the Midnight Cowboy shade. Awwwww ... :rant:

I want both MAC mineralize es toos & actually all the blush & beauty powders too LOL! I was just making a list today & coz the list is so long, I decided to redeem my CC points for shopping vouchers. :p

That UD palette looks gorgeous, used to love UD long time ago when I was an active MUA'er.

Your Divine Palette is TDF! I really need to get my hands on 1 or 2 or....

Sophia: *smack forehead* I meant to say I doubt Viva Glam GAGA lipglass will look decent on me! I LOVE how Cyndi looks! Haha!

Michelle: Who you kidding?! LOL! I think I most likely will definitely get the mineralised eyeshadows unless they really look 'meh'. And I'm thinking of holding out on the OCC liptar in Harlot I think (the cherry vermillon one) in case I really like Toxic Tale

Chantana: Ya! without the orangey corrector, the shade of the eyecircles makes the concealer look a bit greyish

Chocful: oh yes, a lot of the Sleek palettes are lovely! and they hardly repeat the colours! And great idea - I should see if I have enough credit card points to churn out some vouchers! Tho I doubt cos I have not been using the cc much these days

Amy: from what I heard, there are waiting lists at the 3 Sephoras - you'd better call and check so u don't get left behind! :flower:

Ooo, I have the Sleek palettes in Storm and Original and I agree with you, they are great! Super pigmented and really good quality at an affordable price!

On a side note, everyone seems to be raving about the Naked palette. I really want one myself now!

Shandelsam: Uh-oh ... did I just create more competition for me to get the Naked palette?! LOL! Kidding :P

Hahaha! Don't worry! I live in London so i'll be competing with the girls here! I think it's already out here but haven't had the chance to go take a look. When is it out in Sg and how much is UD pricing it at?

Shandelsam: I don't know for sure but we've heard it shd be Sep? and i think it should be in the SGD$70ish to $80 range.. UD AIW was SGD$88 and the other palettes like Deluxe and Ammo were like SGD$65ish if I remember correctly .... :)
