Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

So we're always posting on hauls and stuff, and I thought this would be an interesting twist.

Lots of us have that one (or more) thing that we eye every time we go into sephora/ sephora website, and we want to get it but we don't.

What is yours? What about it tempts you? and Why don't you get it?

 

I''ll start.

For sephora.com, I would definitely say the urban decay eyeliner vault.  All those shades are so tempting, and I am such a junkie for pretty colors. But it is too expensive too buy all of them, especially that I already have too many eyeliners, so I always tell myself that I wouldn't use all those colors anyways.

 

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

An expensive setting/highlighting powder like meteorites or hourglass... although I will probably get my mom to buy me meteorites 02... I am a sucker for pretty things on my vanity. I use bare minerals right now and its fine, but these (or maybe the new nars ones) are tempting me...

 

YSL lipstick... I just tried on corail intuitive... and yeah. That purchase will happen soon. AMAZING. The "coral" / not coral (its very pink) that I have been looking for! I have a feeling this will reach HG status as soon as I get it.

 

A T3 blow dryer - I rarely blow dry my hair as it is, I find with my fine wavy/curly hair I can't keep it long if I do. One week of blow dries and I'd have to cut it. But this sounds so tempting... same goes for some of the other curling wand/heat tools out there.

 

Things I have splurged on and the thoughts:

 

Clarisonic - I have mild acne, not usually white heads though so only really noticeable up close. I find its helped prevent me from getting those white heads on my chin (1/week - now more rare). I use it once every couple days when I think about it. I don't think its necessary for every day - also keep in mind skin with acne is sensitive skin. And use a light touch. Some people have developed broken capillaries from this so keep that in mind as well. Overall I am happy with the purchase and I find it much more effective than a grainy scrub.

The Lorac Pro Palette. Its usually sold out whenever I'm in store but that doesn't stop me from eye-ing the tester like crazy. I have WAY too many neutral shadows to justify buying the palette ( I still don't own the naked or naked 2 palette for exactly that reason) but it always draws me in. Its not limited edition, so I can wait. Plus I've never used Lorac, and don't know what the quality is like.

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

Lorac has some of the best quality eyeshadow - one of my favorite brands.  I own the Pro Palette and find the colors to be beautiful with good color payoff.

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

I only hear of lorac eye shadows...do they have any other product?

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

I would have to say an extractor! I've been so tempted, I just think I might get addicted to using it too much.

I have an extractor and it is addicting!

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

Their eye shadow primer is the best - one of my favorites.

 

Also, they regular primers are extremely good, especially if you have sensitive skin.  I have the mattifying on and it doesn't irritate or dry out my skin like other mattifying primers.

 

Also, their lip gloss/liquid lipstick is pretty amazing as well.  Beautiful color pay off and flattering shades.  I believe it was her 3D lustre that I used in the color Glam and I loved that shade so much.  Very flattering and moisturizing (I cannot wear regular lipsticks).

 

Also, I know a lot of people rave about the TANTanilizer. I haven't use it but I did sample it on my arm.  Adds that summer glow without looking fake.

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

Oh yes I suffered deep lust for that Urban Decay eyeliner vault.  When you broke it down to the price per pencil it sounded so reasonable but the big lump sum of the set was something I just couldn't give in to.  Another product that I have tried with deluxe samples and like very much is the Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream but I can't seem to pull the trigger and spend $155 for 1.7 ounces for a moisturizer.  If the price was lower I would purchase it but I just feel that it is priced way over what it is worth.

Re: Whats that beauty item that always tempts you but you never actually make the purchase?

I love teeth whitening products and I have been eyeing the Glo teeth whitening system forever. it's $199 and I just can't see buying its at that price although it is probably a great price considering I buy the Glo pen after receiving a fee full one for a VIB promo, and I buY the crest strips. MIT would probably pay for itself after not having to buy the other things I buy to whiten. shopkeeper telling myself to get it at the sale, but I don't. Mice even inquired about whitening at the dentist, and the Glo is cheaper than that too....I just keep talking myself out of it.

It's interesting to see that quite a few responses are tools-related. Probably because most of them are quite expensive... so we try and try to talk ourselves into making do with drugstore/Target solutions. At least I do, LOL. I've been tempted to get the GLO teeth whitening set and a T3 blowdryer for the longest time too. Oh and that showerhead filter! *wishful thinking emoticon*
