NARS/MAC/Benefit Wishlist :( + Sarah’s One Regret Tag :)

Posted by roseannetangrs in Lifestyle | Uncategorized

Hey Everyone,

I know, I know I haven’t yet posted another video yet but I will soon I guess. I’ve just opted to take a break from finance haha and decided to do a post, oh and just now I painted my dorm mates faces to mimic a mime – yes it included lots of white face paint and alot of maybelline gel liner because there wasn’t any black lipstick. :( And I didn’t take any pictures because they were late for the party already.

Anyway, yesterday I came across Mecca Cosmetica in Melbourne which is right across the MYER department store and saw the heavenly NARS counter, well counters as a matter of fact. It was dreamy and I managed to swatch laguna bronzer and orgasm and deep throat as well as the multiples (blush sticks as well). I am utterly in love with their packaging. I didn’t take any pictures though, I think I was so absorbed in the moment that I forgot plus I’d probably be kicked out because they don’t like people taking pictures there.

So, I came up with a NARS wish list, which is actually a manageble wish list because I need to NOT spend anything for 2 weeks to make up for the money lost according to my current allowance income. haha.

1. LAGUNA BRONZER

We all know from youtuber allthatglitters21 that this is her favourite bronzer. Right now I’m currently using Everyday Minerals Everyday Bronzer but I dislike the fact that I have to be EXTRA careful with the amount I put on my brush to contour my cheeks because a tinge more and it could look quite muddy. Plus, its a bit inconvenient that its not pressed and I’ve wanted this since day 1 as its reviews are quite the wonderful.

Damage to be done: AUD$72.00 (i know.)

2. NARS Limited Edition Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duos

with Orgasm Blush and Laguna Bronzer. I might actually get this instead of getting the full size laguna bronzer because it also comes with the famous Orgasm Blush. BUT its limited Edition. :(

Damage to be Done: AUD$70.00

3. NARS Orgasm Blush

Do i really need to explain why? LOL. Probably the most talked about blush of the century.

Damage to be done: AUD$62.00

So from Nars, I could be spending either: AUD$134.00 or AUD$70.00 (if that duo is still around)

MAC

1. MAC 109 Brush

 

I want a good contouring brush, and I’ve heard this is a must have MAC brush and it will be the first MAC brush I will purchase. I want one that can fit nicely into my cheek bones, basically no fuss contouring because for my contouring step right now, I have to be EXTRA careful with the amount of product I put on my brush and where I handle my brush. I just need it less complicated haha

Damage to be done: AUD$62.00

BENEFIT

1. BENETINT

Benetint! I’ve been wanting this for a long time, mainly because it stays for the entire day, and I haven’t yet found a blush that does this :( I would use this for hardcore occasions like clubbing or sports. Something that won’t rub off so quickly.

Damage to be done: AUD$51.00

Total Damage:

With Duo: $183.00 (1 week of no spending)

Without Duo: $247.00 (2 weeks of no spending)

Which will be alright since all my food and EvERYTHING is basically provided free (well not free, its included from my dorm fees, not part of my allownace though) by my dorm. YAY. hahaha. Its just that I’ve never done anything like this before, I’ve never really ventured majorly like this into high end brands but I’ve been stalking these products on youtube for the longest time. Perhaps one day…I shall get them. hehe. And don’t worry I will keep you posted of it.

And I know a long while back I was tagged by Sarah to do the One Regret I have, well here it is, quite blatantly.

I regret questioning my ex boyfriends love so much and when we broke up , I wish I didn’t make such a ‘big’ fuss out of it, out of the fact that he got a new girlfriend 2 weeks after we broke up. I regret asking him back, I regret breaking down in tears and I regret letting what seemed like the world know what happened. Even if they asked. I wish I played it cool, and when we broke up, I wish I did something like nod and show him the door, deleted him from my life and that was it. Not a single word or utterance. That I regret. But I don’t regret that ‘we’ happened.

:) Cool beans, hope you like this post!

Love,
Roseanne

    Just my two cents worth on the 109 brush. I heard it was a total must-have for contouring etc too thus I went out to get it, but I guess it depends on what you feel is more convenient. Right now I don’t reach for that brush much to do contouring, instead I use the MAC 168 as I feel the ‘angled’ factor makes it a lot easier and faster. But that’s just my opinion (: Good luck with saving up!

  • xbeanie says:

    hmm yeah i guess its up to individual’s preference of how you’d like to do it, im always using my 109 to contour though.. hahah. i feel that its small and dense enough to deposit your contour at just the right place, i used to use my angled brush but it isnt as precise.

    Hey Roseanne! I tagged on your blogspot blog before, requesting for the hair tutorial. Anyway, I do have an extra bottle of Benetint, which I can let you have it at SG$41 (Is that about AUD34.0255?). But ummm you have to pay for the shipping… Let me know!

  • feistyskies says:

    heh heh omg roseanne that involves a lottttttt of moolahs! ;)

  • roseannetangrs says:

    icyabstract: thanks so much for your input, I will research the MAC 168 :D
    xbeanie: yea i was thinking that i might be easier than the angled blush brush I have from everyday minerals so I cant wait to get it haha
    Jaylee: oh man, that would be really nice but I don’t know how to get the money to you since im in aussie now yea
    fiestyskies: haha I KNOW :(:( but i think the first thing i would get would be the MAC 109. I’m an avid stalker of it.

  • MaddyMadeline says:
