Current Craves | Waiting for a sale ...

Waiting for a Sale ...
Morning all! How were all your weekends? Yes, it's Tuesday, but I took my three day weekend seriously and just chilled. On Sunday I actually went snow tubing with my family and an "extended" family of mine. It was the most fun I've had in a while just sliding down these big hills and dancing with the attendants who worked at the top so none of us froze! Yesterday I had no school thanks to President's Day but was forced awake early to help Mihai with his film (No one ever say I'm a bad girlfriend!) 

ANYWHO-sville, I'm not really feeling writing a review today. I think I've written so many lately that I just want a change and something rambly, so how about a wish list? I love going on Polyvore, picking a theme, and just going wild with the product pictures! Today's theme will be "Things-I-Will-Get-But-Can't-Until-Sephora-Has-A-Sale". Hopefully you all got that, haha! In simple terms, it's a wish list of things I need and know I will get it, but I'm just waiting on a 20% coupon to magically arrive in my mail before I can go cuckoo bananas! So what exactly will I be getting? Let's see ...
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Flush | On Valentie's Day my blogger friend Andrea from From Inside My Closet tweeted that Tarte was having a 50% off flash sale on their blushes. I was in school but grabbed my phone and instantly started trying to see if I could get my hands on some. Sadly, it didn't work and I missed out on the sale, but not before spotting this beauty and instantly thinking, I NEED THAT. I don't have anything, at all, like it in my small collection of blushes and when I saw Andrea's swatches, I knew I'd have to have it!
  • Urban Decay NAKED Beauty Balm | I've finally exhausted my baby sample of this amazing stuff. I'm going to review this soon so I won't go into to much as to why I love it, but I need it! I'll live without it for a few more months, but when that lovely coupon comes in, don't hold me back! 
  • Benefit's Boxed Blush Powder in Dandelion | How many times has this been on my wish list on this blog? You'd think by now I would have gotten it if I'm still lusting after it! It's a really sweet, pale pink blush that I think would look nice on my pale complexion. I'm also very determined to collect every boxed powder Benefit has because they are amazing!
  • NARS Light Reflecting Setting Powder | I. cannot. begin. to. calmly. explain. why. I. want. this. BUT AGH, this silky dream of a powder feels fantastic all over and it's NARS. I love me some NARS. I'm thinking that in two months time my MAC MSF will finally be out and I can completely justify this!
  • NARS Single Eyeshadow in Mekong | I talk a lot about why I want this eye shadow in another wishlist post which you can check out here. It's a very gorgeous brown that'll be awesome and easy to use to create a simple smokey eye!
  • Beauty Blender | I've always sort of see-sawed back and forth with the thought of getting the Beauty Blender but didn't actually sit down and think "Wow, I'd really love to actually have this" until pretty recently. My foundation has been looking pretty flaky and cakey lately and this is the only thing I've seen and heard of to make that non-existent! At $19 it seems a bit ... expensive, for a sponge, but I've heard it last a good while and actually works, which makes it all the more worth it!
I can't wait until this wish list post transforms into a haul post! I'm thinking this coupon is coming around April (around IMATS, oh boy!) so I'll just have to be patient for a little while longer to get these goodies!

What have you been lusting over lately? No wait, don't tell me ... I'll want it, too! LOL, okay, okay tell me! :)

  1. I think I want everything that you have here. I hate it when you want things but they are to expensive :(
    The blushes look amazing and will be a great stable in a beauty bag this spring/summer :)
    Loving the post.

  3. I love to do Wishlists, actually I'm quite obsessed. I totally understand the whole "Things-I-Will-Get-But-Can't-Until-There-Is-A-Sale" thing.

    1. They're fun and let's me play with the products I want but don't actually have!
      Sometimes it's worth paying for make up but when you can wait for a sale, we wait! :)

  4. GEEZ I WANT ALL OF THIS. And you NEED flush, I wore it yesterday and GIRL, it is so pigmented, i bearly even touched my stippling brush to it and I ALMOST looked like a clown, but in such a good way!
    Right now I so want a concealer palette by MAC! And all of their brushes (Waiting for my PRO card in June!)!
    GREAT POST AS ALWAYS, WE ARE SO BAD FOR EACHOTHER.

    1. IMATS BABY! We'll just walk in and be like "Two of each, please!" Oh man, you make it sound awesome! I want to play with it! :)
      LOL, yes, we are so bad and I cannot and will not argue with you there! :)

  5. Sooooooo many good things on this wishlist!! I can't wait to see your haul of these items as well and praise you for your willpower and good taste.
    On another note, I too have been thinking about getting a beauty blender in my life and have seen some dupes/impersonators at Walgreens for around $6... just thought I'd let you know so that if you feel like treating yourself to something cheaper in the meantime maybe you can try one of those out (I think I'm going to nab one the next time I'm at the store heheheeeeeee)! ;)

    1. Why thank you!
      Yeah, I saw the dupe beauty blenders and was wondering how good they are but so far all the reviews I've seen comparing the two say it's not even worth it because they don't work the same. Which is strange :/ But it was more bad then good. If you do, play with it and put up a review! I can trust you tell me honestly, haha! :)

  6. Dandelion has been on my wishlist for so long now! Also, I got the beauty blender using birchbox points and I have to say it might actually be worth the money. I use it with my more liquidy foundations and it gives a beautiful finish.

    1. Mine too!
      & yeah, I'm starting to think that it's not worth spending $6 on a dupe because it's not up to par and the beauty blender is actually THAT amazing! thanks!! :)

  7. Hehe, I am crazily anticipating for the next Sephora sale too (I hate spending full price on makeup products unless I "have" to). This is great wishlist - would love to try the beauty blender and that NARS powder!

  8. I'm seriously addicted to the Tarte blushes. I got Flush in a set during Ulta's black friday sale, and it's so unique to my collection! I'm very fair so I have to make sure to use the tiniest amount (which looks like i just came back from the cold) or I'd look crazy. I've also used this blush on darker ladies, and it seriously looks even more amazing!

    1. It's so unique to anything I've ever seen in a plum color like that! Ooooh, I really love that flush form the cold look! Eek, this isn't helping me wait! Thanks :D

  9. I wish they sold tarte in the UK, I'm absolutely desperate to get my hands on some of their stuff!! I'd definitely recommend the Dandelion blush, it's such a pretty, natural soft pink, it's lovely! And I really can't believe how much they charge for beauty blenders, it's crazy! I don't think I could justify it without a pretty good sale either!

    1. I wonder why they don't sell Tarte in the UK?! Can you get it online or shipping crazy? :/
      Yeah it's a tad steep but people are saying it's totally worth the $20 because it's as if you're paying for a really high quality foundation brush. Will just have to wait and see :)

  10. YES! This wishlist is kind of the epitome of what I want, most of it is on my current wishlist too! I love the UD BB cream too, I like it because it doesn't feel heavy on my skin but gives pretty nice coverage!!
