I was planning to review some more eye shadows today but then I stopped and said, hey, it is your birthday tomorrow, why not dreaming a little so I prepared a list which I would love to get my hands on. Some of them will probably end up in my Christmas Wish List as well, especially the perfumes and the watch since I have been eyeing these for quiet a while.
|Wish list, birthday edition|
La Grande Classique de Longines
I have been loving my Tissot watch for the last ten years and never thought I would need another one so soon but it turns out mine started having some minor problems now and then so I got my eyes on this beauty a few months ago. I usually like using watches with white backgrounds but once combined with diamonds instead of numbers, this one with black background and silver bracelet won my heart.
La Collection Privée - Gris Montaigne by Dior
A lovely floral chypre from one of my favorite noses, François Demachy. I have been circulating around Dior Counter (like the moon around earth!) in the department store and always end up spraying this from head to toe as my nose each time follows me to where it is. I have Oud Ispahan for winter, which is, along with my never ending love for Eau Noire, my favorites from La Collection Privée line. I am not usually big on roses but the rose inside Gris Montaigne isn't too pronounced on me, it lasts long and it is very day appropriate.
Les Exclusifs de Chanel - Coromandel
I am having a long affair with Coromandel and I have been through various samples of it. I also enjoy Beige from the same line which is a easy day time beauty but Coromandel is more than that, it is edgy and unique, a rich woody oriental tune to my nose but it is unlike anything, like a mystery which should never be solved. The only thing which kept me away from investing in a full bottle was the fact that it is EDT but I have seen that my large bottle of Beige is holding strong since two years. I may pull the trigger any minute.
YSL Palette Couture #11 Ballet Russes
I have gathered almost all the palettes from new YSL Line, some more dear to me than the others and my favourite up to now is #09 Love which you can still win by entering my give away here. Meanwhile I have tried #10 too, which was a bit too blue and green for my taste but great in terms of color pay-off and texture. I have noticed that #11 is going to be released in Germany in September but it is already available in France, Sephora. What a coincidence, I will be in France tomorrow ;-)
Chanel Les 4 Ombres #234 Poésie
I tried to order that one from US but it was sold out just a few hours ago before I could hit the button. Then it was an in-store exclusive, so hard to get for me with an international CC. Now that I know it will be reaching our shores soon, I can't wait to try it out!
Guerlain Fall 2014 Palettes
There are three of these beauties, each one more beautiful than the other. It will be very hard to select one, or two, or maybe three?
Suqqu Fall Collection
Since the promo images hit online, this one has been on my radar. That split-pan palette is too gorgeous to use and I am very curious about the trios too. I am even thinking to try out one of their lipsticks from this collection, never tried a Suqqu lippy before, any recommendations?
Nars Fall Collection
It looks like another lovely collection from Nars and two of the eye shadow duos are said to have similar texture to the ones from Spring, which I am loving at the moment. I am also very curious about the blush this time. Here comes my confession: I don't own a single Nars blush! Shocked? *laughs*. Anyway this fact may change any minute, I just have to get to France to check things out in person because we don't have any Nars Counters in Germany... yet...
Was it a long list? I am not even done yet. Tom Ford Fall Collection is going to be a big haul for me because I have been eyeing almost everything from that one. I have been also enjoying permanent MAC Eye Shadows at the moment and may end up getting a second empty palette to fill out during the months to come. I also have a long Hakuhodo order list for the months to come.
What is in your wish list at the moment? Anything common to mine?
