I just... wasn't interested. I'm guessing it's because I didn't have the internet, and couldn't drool over endless hauls of beautiful things, but nothing interested me - that is, until a small package from across the pond dropped through my door. It contained a Burberry eyeshadow, and begged me to enjoy it. And so I did - and then felt myself wanting to run screaming to the shops and buy everything, all at once, forever.
Since easing myself back into the OMGMUSTHAVE kind of existence (and I do it very well), I've been compiling lists upon lists in an idle fashion, and then crossing stuff out and putting it back on. In all my indecisiveness, here are the 4 things I settled on for this month's shopping list, and what beauties they are indeed!

Unii Palette.MAC bores me. Their palettes are ugly, and I don't even care for my MAC shadows anymore. For all of my other little depots that need rehoming after my upcoming purge of MAC from my makeup collection, I think one of these in a saccharine-sweet colour will sweeten the deal - so cute and practical with a mirror and a pre-magnetised base. Perfect for travel, and look much sturdier than MAC's palettes, too!
Burberry Sheer Eye Shadows.Ah, and now we come to the reason behind the MAC purge. Recently my friend Panties over at The Black Panties blog (click it, she has the most amazing taste in high-end makeup), took it upon her lovely self to send me a gift, my very first eyeshadow from Burberry. And what a beauty. These babies are so soft and pigmented without being chalky or powdery and I feel like I don't really care for anything else but these. These are done to perfection, and I'm hoping for a couple more. On my list? Well I kind of want all of them. Right now I'm leaning towards Pale Barley and Pearl Grey. And Mulberry. And all the other ones.
Hydraluron.This is kind of the new buzzword in skin care right now. When Caroline Hirons gives something a rave, you sit up and take notice. This is supposed to make the skin super-soft, glowy and plump, giving an instantaneous feeling of moisture. I haven't taken much notice of products from this brand yet, but this could be the one to sway me - anything with plump or super-soft and I'm there, basically, massaging it enthusiastically into my grey never-seen-the-light-of-day skin.
Armani Maestro Foundation.Small confession - I was so horrendously excited about this product launching that I've bought it already. AND *cough* I paid for express shipping. It arrives tomorrow, and I just can't wait to try it out for the first time. This is apparently a revolutionary formula that contains oils, lasts all day and looks like skin. Seeing as increasingly I'm seeing my foundation in the harsh light of day and can see the swirl marks where I didn't manage to blend properly, or the bits where it has stuck to dry skin, this just sounds amazing. It's a liquid texture packaged with a pipette, and when I tested it at the counter, it spread slickly over the skin, I just can't wait to see what it's like on my face!
I can't wait to squeal over my little Armani purchase that arrives tomorrow!
