I’ve been shopping in the Galleria all day, as might be evident since I’m writing this post at 9:00. You’d think I’d grow weary of shopping and feeding my inner consumerist pig, but nope. Spending a day shopping only deepened my desire for some items. Therefore I present to you the first edition (of what I’m sure will be many) Lust List.
1) MAC Viva Glam Lipstick V
I am obsessed with this lipstick. I stalk it in my dreams. And in the store, but mostly in my dreams.
2) Illamasqua Toxic Nature Lipstick in Atomic and Flare.
Atomic. I adore the depth of this color. It's like staring into a vibrant magenta abyss.
Toxic Nature Lipstick in Flare. I've been wanting to try a bright orange lipstick, and this one rocks my world. I might succumb to this little beaut.
3) NARS Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross.
I'd heard rave reviews of this shade for years but never swatched it before today. The way it made my skin look almost made me cry. I couldn't believe the beauty hidden in this seemingly boring shade. Sephora was sold out or I would have bought this little wonderful powder of joy.
4) Essie Nailpolish in Mademoiselle
I'm in a pink phase and this is the one that I want.
5) Illamasqua’s Toxic Nature Nail Varnish in Purity, Gamma, Radium, Bacterium.
Color: Purity. This is what my summery cocktail dreams are made of.
Color: Gamma. Makes me think of Sunsets and Sunrises. The tequila variety.
Color: Radium. This reminds me of the colors I used to wear when I was a pre-teen. So garish it's darling.
Color: Bacterium. I'm obsessed with this color because I think it's ugly and therefore it's beautiful. Don't ask me to explain it. It's that same disconnect that makes me obsessive over things like Sweeney Todd and Tim Burton's anything.
6) Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil.
The swatches and previews I've seen of these are AMAZING, even though they didn't have them on the shelf yet in the Galleria Sephora.
7) Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne.
I'm addicted to this perfume but don't own it. It's a problem.
8) MAC Nail Lacquer in Biker Blue.
This picture doesn't do the polish justice in the slightest*. It is like staring into the depths of the cosmos.
* Because that picture is crap, here’s a swatch/review from XSparkage.com
And those are the things I’m lusting over. I hope everyone is enjoying Spring Break if you have one, or just your day if you don’t.
