A Silly Little Wish*: Beauty Wish List, July 2011

Image from freephotos.se, a godsend considering that my camera broke at the very start of my recent holiday :(
I’ve finally collated all of my various wishlists from assorted notebooks, my laptop, magazine tear-outs and the backs of envelopes. In an ideal world, here’s what I’d be stocking my bathroom shelves with…

  • Kiehl’s argan oil
  • Schwarzkopf Osis Dust It Mattifying Powder
  • Oh, and a fabulous cut (I’m on the look-out for a new hairdresser; any recommendations?)
  • Aldi Lacura Wrinkle Stop Filler Pen & Serum
  • Oilatum Natural Repair face cream – have been wanting to try this out after hearing the Pixiwoo girls rave about it.
  • Benefit b.right! Refined Finish Facial Polish
  • StriVectin eye cream (apparently costs mega bucks, so this could be just a pipe dream)
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place ShadowCreme
  • MAC Eyeshadow in Sumptuous Olive and/or Greensmoke
  • MAC Painterly Paint Pot
  • New Clarins mascara – I thought I read (on beaut.ie maybe?) about a new mascara offering from this brand but I can’t find any info on it at the moment. If I just dreamed it up then I would be more than happy with another tube of their Wonder Perfect Mascara, which is my current fave.
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Fairy Teal and Yellow Kitty
  • Estee Lauder Pure Colour Nail Lacquer in Metallic Sage
  • Chanel Le Vernis in Graphite/Quartz/Peridot (love them all, but out of necessity will limit self to one)

*I thought I'd share this sweet little poem, while I'm here
A Silly Little Wish
I looked up.
I saw a shooting star,
I saw a shooting star in the dark sky.
I made a wish,
I made a wish to be with you.
I looked down.
I saw a penny,
I saw a penny on the gravel.
I made a wish,
I made a wish to be with you.
I looked to the right.
I saw birthday candles,
I saw birthday candles on a lavender cake.
I made a wish,
I made a wish to be with you.
I looked to the left.
I saw a dandelion,
I saw a dandelion on the lawn.
I made a wish,
I made a wish to be with you.
I look straight ahead.
I see you,
I see you right here in front of me.
I made a wish,
I made a wish and it came true.
