January is typically a no-spend month for me. After all of the holiday shopping, its a time to put away the metaphorical cheque book (we all do e-banking anyway, don’t we?), and start saving. But that doesn’t mean that a girl can’t dream right? With February now upon us, it’s time to reflect on all of those little items that made their way into the shopping cart, but not past the check-out. Here’s what I’m wishing for this month.
It comes as no surprise that my top to-be-purchased items are skincare and beauty related. There’s one brand in particular that I’ve been super interested in trying out this month – erborian. It’s a Korean skincare brand, so you know the expectations are high, but the two items that are first on my list is the Bamboo Waterlock Mask and the BB Crème. The one major annoyance – Sephora doesn’t ship the BB to Canada (wahh!). Luckly I’ll be crossing the boarder later this month, so hopefully I can snag some there.
Another item that doesn’t ship to Canada, but that I still have my eye on, is the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation. I first heard of this stuff from Nicole Guerriero – and basically, what Nicole says goes.
Now onto items that I can actually get my hands on. The internet has been buzzing with good things about the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer, so it won’t come as a shock that I’ve already added that to my shopping basket. And I mentioned in a previous post that my next brush purchase would be the Bobbi Brown Eye Blender Brush.
I’ve also been drooling over the La Mer The Radiant Concealer. I know, I know. Big bucks. But I’m pretty much willing to pay anything if that means covering up my dark circles.
Becca has also grabbed my attention this month, both with their Ombre Rouge Eye Palette and their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal. Finally, I’m a huge cleansing oil fan, and though The Body Shop’s Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil is still my number one, I’m interested in trying out the Caudalie Make-up Removing Cleansing Oil. I already know that I like Caudalie’s skincare line, and I’ve heard this oil is a lot less stripping than The Body Shop’s.
