Weekend Wish List #3

This week’s Weekend Wish List might be a tad longer than others, but hey, I blame it on my birthday. I’ve been browsing around in click-and-mortar style. The product I really am looking forward to try is The Pro Makeup Shop Makeup Brush Cleaner. I’ve been spot-cleaning my brushes with MAC‘s Brush Cleaner for over 3 years and have gone through a few bottles already – time for some change. I’ve heard many good things about this from Anna and it’s a spray bottle! No more pouring too much product and make a mess each time I use it.

An item that got me really excited was Minus 417 Recovery Mud Mask. It’s different from any regular mud mask you’ve ever tried or heard of. Why, you ask? Because you remove the mask with a magnet. A magnet! While the magnet will remove all kinds of impurities, it’ll also stimulate the blood flow, which will result in plumped and youthful skin. Continuing on skincare, this works has recently launched a new skincare line called in transit. This line is especially for those that are on-the-go much and have to sit through long-haul flights. this works in transit camera close-up is described as a portable pick-me-up that evens, plumps and brightens instantly. I’ll be flying to China this summer, thus will have to sit through a 12 hour flight, which equals to hell for my skin. This claims to erase signs of fatigue, boost hydration and prep the skin for photo perfect make up. It can be used as a moisturizer, mask and primer in one. 

The lovely Mel is totally to blame for this one, the way she described how she got on with the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask just made me want to have this in my life. I’ve always wanted to try something Manuka honey based, as it has many skin benefits. You guys know I’ve been struggling with my hair care a lot and when I accidentally bumped into Michael Clarke‘s 3 more inches Thickening Blow Dry Spray wit got me very excited. It has ‘unique thickening agents with flexible memory’ (their words not mine) are supposed to make the hair instantly fuller. A few sprays from root to mid-end will do. I love simplicity in hair care.

I’ve been always eyeing RMS products, putting them in and out of my basket, and have never made the splurge. The items that have been on my list since ages? RMS ‘Un’ Cover-up Concealer and RMS Lip2Cheek. I’m a sucker for all things multi-purpose and what can beat a product that’s been raved about by my favorite aussie Miranda Kerr. I’ve also been discovering more spots in London lately and my last destination was Marylebone. I absolutely love that area and it’s so different from the all-time busy Oxford Street. Not to forget, Marylebone also has a few beauty stores that make my heart race.

With a small flagship store in Marylebone it would be bad not to stop by fresh. to see what I’ve been missing out on. The reason for that is because it’s so hard to get a hold of in the Netherlands and Paris (i.e. impossible). With two spritzes of their Brown Sugar Eau de Perfume I was sold – a very fresh perfume with some citrus in it that has a teeny tiny bit of sweetness to it. Love! With a variety of their award-winning tinted lipbalms I had to swatch them all, one that stole my heart? Sugar Rosé. Oh my, is the hefty price tag worth the splurge? It does contain SPF 15 if that helps…

What have you been longing for this week?
