What's on your shopping list?

I'd love to hear what's on your beauty shopping list, sephora or otherwise. Smiley Happy i'm always on the lookout for new products to try!


i don't have anything that i'm dying for on mine now... but here it is... 


Acqua di Parma Colonia (I really just want to smell it!)

Clarins Instant Light Perfecting Eye Base (again, just want to try it!)

Zirh Try Me Kit (next time the bf needs some skincare)

John Varvatos Artisan Gift Set (when the bf runs out of cologne)

DDF Aloe Toning Complex (has anyone tried this?)

Cover FX Camoflauge Concealer or Amazing Concealer (want to try both!)

Nars Larger Than Life Lip Gloss (can't wait for it to be in stores!)

Tricia Sawyer Alive! (just saw it online a few days ago and it looks interesting!)

Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Bronzing Powder (pretty but sooo pricey)

Sephora Collection Smoky Kohl (just want to try it!)

New Too Faced Kits (Sun on the Run, Perfectly Pretty & Gorgeous Lips Everyday - might be good gifts for the holidays!)

Sephora Brush Wand (seems like a cool idea, but i doubt i need it)

Stila Striking in South Beach (another gift maybe?)

Sephora Collection Color Flip (gift again?)

Dior 5-Color shadow in Mystic Smokys (i keep looking at this but i SO don't need eyeshadow)


i guess a lot of this list is more to try rather than to buy! haha and here's my non-sephora list...

Dr. Hauschka Lemon Oil

Mac Viva Glam Lipstick (I forget the color now, shoot)

Supersmile Whitening Floss

Zoya Pandora Nail Polish

Giorgio Armani Blast of Blue Eyes To Kill Eye Shadow

Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Lipstick

Almay Oil Free Makeup Eraser Sticks

Chanel Cream Eye Shadow in Mirifique or Illusoire


surprisingly i don't want anything from the nars fall collection! And I always want something from their new collections... hmmm... and thankfully i don't have a desperate urge to buy any of these things right now. woohoo


Excited to hear your picks, or any of your opinions on mine!

Re: What's on your shopping list?

jxw200---Do you already own some Dior shadows? How's the pigment? I would hate to spend so much money and have it be lower quality than Urban Decay.Smiley Indifferent

Re: What's on your shopping list?

@jxw200 lol that would be awesome.  Sounds like the start of a TSB lol.  I think the last one I was reading about died down. 



@sephoramusthave  If Dior, for some strange reason, turned out to be lower quality than UD, then something is wrong with the makeup world!  One would think that Dior would be beyond amazing quality. 

Re: What's on your shopping list?

Thats what everyone assumes but so far I have not found a better quality shadow than Urban Decay. I've tested out several big name companies in Sephora and a lot of them very chalky, and had no pigment whatsoever...the next best one to UD in terms of shadow is TheBALM.

Re: What's on your shopping list?

i have 2 of the quints (i think the official name is 5-colour something), and i really like them. they are soft and wear at least six hours on me without primer. I do often have oily lids though. also i do find the majority of dior shadows to be pigmented.


for some reason, i sometimes find the limited edition palettes not as pigmented or smooth. and like the trios look nice but when i've tested them in store they're eh. maybe its just the testers though!  

Re: What's on your shopping list?

Hm....odd. I read through a bunch of the reviews on the Dior Holiday Eye Palette and a lot of people were saying that its ulta pigmented with minimal shimmer and that its a lot better in terms of overall quality then the other Dior shadow palettes. 


I have to see it for myself and test it out a bit before I splurge on a quad. Right now though, I'm super excited to get it!

Re: What's on your shopping list?

For sure! let us know when you test it out! I'm excited too! Lol.


i was really bummed when i tested a trio cause i read great reviews on cafemakeup and the one i tried barely showed up! But maybe it was the tester or lack of brush, i don't know! 

Re: What's on your shopping list?

oh and my updated shopping list


guerlain rouge automatique

Fresh sugar passion lip treatment

Fresh advanced therapy lip treatment

dior extase mascara

nars smudgeproof eyeshadow base


all things i would buy after using up some of my current products.


i am still desperately wanting:

chanel illusion d'ombre in mirifique

chanel soleil de tan bronzing base

nars yachiyo brush

Re: What's on your shopping list?

Awesome wish list!


On the trio you tried...either there was no pigment to the product or the colors were too light for your complexion. There shouldnt be a difference in overall quality between a tester and the brand new packaged product, especially when it comes to powder shadow. ( Things like cream shadows and liners can dry out in the testers) I typically apply shadow with my fingers so if it takes me way too many layers to get the color thats in the pan translated to my lid, then the quality is bad. I absolutely HATE having to buy a different brush for every product, that just doesnt make sense to me. Especially with mineral shadows. Companies that make mineral shadows design their brushes to only pick up THEIR mineral shadows, they wont pick up any other brand. I used to have a medium sized makeup bag that was filled with BE brushes, and I just recently washed them real well and gave them to my mom. I only use (and own) 3 brushes right now, they are amazing and I dont see the need for more.



Re: What's on your shopping list?

I have to add in this product.


L'occitane Fabulous Serum.

Fabulous Serum


Its a lighter version of the L'occitane Ultra Rich Face Cream, my staple moisturizer that I have used religiously for years. Its not at all what I would call a serum, I would call this a day cream or a lightweight moisturizer. Its perfect for the summer months, it absorbs almost instantly and completely and leaves your face hydrated, soft and super supple the entire day when used the night before. Its pricey because you only get 1 oz ($39, my 1.7 oz cream is $40))...but I have tried many samples and absolutely love it and will use it in the summer months.

Re: What's on your shopping list?

I decided to make my own shopping list and realized its all makeup organizers and holders! As well as the fact it may be time for me to finally throw out my face and eye brushes for some new ones!


As well as more perfume!


Tocca Bianca is at the top of my shopping list, it is SUCH a great light fragrance, I definitely pick up the clean, grean tea notes!



As well as a few new lip colors and glosses!  You can never have too many! Smiley Wink

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: What's on your shopping list?

Hello, speaking of L'OCCITANE Products , has anyone tried their DIVINE CREME or





Re: What's on your shopping list?

I need to add mascara to my wishlist now lol.  I'm not sure if I'll pick up UD Big Fatty Mascara (I guess it's my HG), or try something different.  A few months ago I was thinking about trying Kat Von D's Sinful Lash mascara.  I'll have to compare its brush to UD's.  Plastic brushes don't seem to work as well for my as fluffy ones.

Re: What's on your shopping list?

I only found 2 mascaras that I like. Benefit Bad Gal Lash for most days (its not that takes several coats for it to give me the lashes I want) and Givenchy Phenomen Eyes (this is the absolute best for dramatic length and I love the brush...gets every last lash OUT) and none of these formulas dry out quickly. They LAST and they dont end up under my eyes so I think they are worth it.

Re: What's on your shopping list?

i agree about benefit badgal lash... oh well. I really want to try the new guerlain rouge g mascara that has that gorgeous case & is refillable.. but ack its so expensive.


my shopping list is getting HUGE again, soooo i think i'll go to sephora during lunch tomorrow and investigate some of the items on it. THEN I'll post what i actually want lol cause that will make me feel better.

Re: What's on your shopping list?

@sephoramusthave that was my line of thinking on the trio. i always test with my fingers and i'm pretty sure i just keep hoping i'll test it and it'll somehow be great lol. i agree that brushes should work for more than one brand!!

Re: What's on your shopping list?

Hello Ladies!


Considering I am on a "No Buy" in an attempt to use the load of products I already have, (and because every trip leaves me with everything BUT what I originally came in for) so I am thinking and planning on some skincare items to purchase:


Korres Wild Rose 24 Hour Moisturizer

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

Origins A Perfect World Cleanser

Philosophy MicroDelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel (which is a great product!)


And also, another facial exfoliant, I'm thinking of trying one by Ren or Amore Pacific. Smiley Happy

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: What's on your shopping list?

I really wish I could commit to a no-buy but I have NO self-control when it comes to beauty products.  I just went to the store on Saturday (needed New Year's Eve makeup. Well "need" is stretching it a bit) and got an order yesterday.  Of course, I have already started my new shopping list.


Sephora by OPI

-To the Glitter End

To the Glitter End!

-Indi-go With the Flow

Indi-go With the Flow


Benefit Hervana



Re: What's on your shopping list?

I really have no control either! fortunately i have very little to spend on beauty products (really none at all if I want to be super budget-y and realistic) so i can't go crazy right now! 


@keely I've been trying to decide between those two polish shades!

Re: What's on your shopping list?

@Jwx200 Both polishes are awesome!  Clearly I'm not able to choose Smiley Wink Aside from the color difference, To the Glitter End! looks like sequins when it goes on and Indi-go With the Flow has a little more shimmer. I love the idea of mixing them with a polish I already own. Maybe checking our what you already have and choosing the one that you think would pair the best with them would help you make the choice.

Re: What's on your shopping list?

good tip keely! I was hoping to try them in store but the store i went to today didn't have them Smiley Sad but i did like the flurry up top coat!
