    – NARS Matte Multiple (I love anything that’s matte, maybe except foundations)
    – NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (You know me, I love me some concealers)
    – DIOR Glow Maximizing Primer (Sigh IKR it’s been on here since Jan)
    – Etude House Face Conditioning Cream (A dewy/glowy primer used by many Korean celebrities)
    – Etude House Lash Grow Primer (I wonder how it compares to the Dior one :P Do you want to try one?)


    I’ve also been wanting to try the YSL Youth Liberator Foundation because of its skincare properties but I currently cannot fish out that amount of money for a foundation :( Plus I’ve got myself too many opened bottles of BB/CC/ TMs laying around…… And I’m DYING to try anything that’s from Tom Ford/ Kevyn Aucoin…

      Oh now I’d like to try the Etude House Face Conditioning Cream, too!!! I am really, really tempted to get the YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation. I need that one last push! LOL!

      I’ve been using L’Oréal Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum for more than a year now and it works. And it’s cheap! You should try! :D

      I want to try the Multiple so bad! But I’m still waiting to read Christine’s (Temptalia) review of all the colors before I make my purchase! They all look so pretty, though!

  2. Yes!!! That Tory Burch Divine Bronzer, Blush & Highlighter Palette is STUNNING! I’m actually surprised at the $48 price tag? I thought it would be in the $65+ range! I think I’ve become completely desensitized to high end prices, lol! I bought the MAC Face & Body and the Hourglass brush specifically to apply it with after reading Karen/M&BB’s review/tutorial, and I have not been disappointed! That brush is fabulous. Streak-free application? Check! The foundation is really good, too. You may have to layer it for more coverage, but it’s totally workable and the finish is beautiful. Plus, once it’s set, it doesn’t BUDGE. I fell asleep after work one evening (something I never do!) and none of my foundation came off on my pillow case and it still looked good when I woke up! I’m a foundation junkie so NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation has been on my radar forEVER. I happened to be trying to locate coral pocket squares with my fiance tonight at Nordstrom (wedding craziness…) and happened by the NARS counter! I was so excited to finally get to try it on in-store and it’s lovely! I also have my eyeballs on the Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nudes eyeshadow palette and one of the new Tom Ford lippies for Spring. I’m trying to hold off on the TF, though, b/c I’ve heard once you try one, you’re a goner, lol!

      It’s ridic the amount of money we have to pay these days for high-end makup! LOL!

      Oh, so Karen is the one who popularizes MAC F&B!!! I know there has to be someone who started all the hype! :D I should try it with the Hourglass brush, too, then!

      I usually don’t get along well with cream foundation but I’m looking forward to reading your review on it! We seem to have similar taste so if you like it that much, I think maybe I will, too!

      And yes to the TF lippies. Once you are in, there’s no way out! So think HARD! Hahahaha

  3. I’ve been lusting over the hourglass blushes, the Armani CC cream, the clinique blushes, the gorgeous armani highlighter, and omg almost half of the things on your list! the trouble with being in the Philippines is that some of those products (Armani, Tory Burch) are unavailable here and the products that ARE available here are being sold with jacked up prices! I usually do my makeup hauls when I go to HK or the States.. which I think is not going to be in the near future for me. </3

    1. says: Jaa

      That’s what I heard from my friends in Thailand, too! I’m definitely grateful that makeup prices in the States are more reasonable and pretty much anything I want I can buy it in store or online. The only bad thing is such convenience is not healthy for my wallet!! LOL!
