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.

Do you apply the whole strip at once, Janine? Try cutting the strip into halves or even thirds so the sides or middle don't run into your naturally curly lashes and get glue on them!

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

It doesn't matter if their halves or even singles. I can do a full strip or half strip, it just takes a lot more time and 9 times out of 10 does not look natural unless I really work with my arsenal of mascaras and a spooley. My natural lashes never get glue on them they just sort of bump the lashes up for a gap.

 

I was the fastest "lasher" during my MAC days at our counters for special events and what not, so it's quite humorous that my own lashes cause so much trouble.

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Maybe you can end up taking a curler to the false lashes before you apply them! Smiley Happy

I want the YSL Manifesto Gift set that's out right now.  I really like this fragrance, and for the way prices scale it's a really good deal.  But I know that I have a TON of perfumes and it would take me ages to go through 4 oz when I have so many things and wear something different daily depending on my mood.

 

I did manage to get the new Fragrance Sampler from Sephora in JCP during Chic Week and Manifesto is in that, so I expect that is what I will pick and 1oz will be plenty for now.  Still, it's good that Sephora doesn't have the set because the triple point offer might push me over the ledge.

 

I would like the Lorac Pro Palette.  I really love their shadows and my Unzipped Palette.  However, I have lots of things and also want to get Tarte Aqualillies (which I probably will do next week; I want to see it in person if I can) so I will not get the Pro Palette right now.  I have too many palettes!!

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

The Clarisonic Mia2 of course because I want it so much, but it's so expensive! Also, the Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint! Every time I go into Sephora I look at these and just never pick one up. I know I want it though!

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

I've had my eye on Bobbi Brown's Brightening Finishing Powder (in Porcelain Pearl) for awhile.  On the one hand, it'd fill a void in my stash -- I only have one powder and it's mattifying -- but on the other, it's $50 for a powder and I've not found many reviews on that particular shade.  The Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders look lovely as well, but with those it's hard to differentiate the hype from the product performance.

 

I usually treat myself to something at the end of the semester -- term papers are a form of psychological torture, I swear -- but with a few other expenses looming I'm still not sure.  Either way I should probably have a nice powder heading into the humid New England summer...

I'm so tempted by this palette!! I love the colors but i don't think i'll ever use it. I have so many eyeshadows that look like these and i hardly put effort into my eyes i don't wear eyeshadow often. This is the only thing i've wanted for awhile that i haven't bought. 

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

Ooh, good question - I didn't see this!

 

Right now it's probably Guerlain Meteorites.  I know I'll end up with them because the hype is massive and everyone just goes insane for them.  And I love face powders, haha.

 

Most of the very high end lipsticks (like Tom Ford, Givenchy, Chanel, etc.) look so gorgeous and I drool over them but I can never justify the price to myself because of how little I wear lipstick.

P E R F U M E !!!

What woman doesn't like to smell good?!

After splurging on the Burberry Brit set a couple weeks ago, I'm already eyeballing this one:

I received a sample along with the bb set from an online order and wondered why I even added the darn fragrance sample to my bag since I was only diggin' a deeper hole into my new addiction. I sprayed the Chanel sample the other night and my bf said I smelled delicious. He didn't say that with the Burberry. *GRR* I must buy it now. Haha!

@spyski- Oh my gosh I love Tendre it smells so good I wear it a lot and last time I went to the mall I had a girl come chasing after me to ask what I was wearing.
