november beauty wishes

the shopping ban is still going strong here in glossarie’land so as you can imagine, my wish list is growing at an impossible rate. with the holidays right around the corner, i am finding that my lemmings have a festive feel – from glittery nails to a shimmery faux fur cosmetic bag, it truly tis the season.

vaseline lip therapy rosy lips, $1.99 - long lasting moisture that protects as it soothes and hydrates, now with a beautiful pink tint. this beauty has previously only been available in the uk and it has finally landed stateside. (available at food, drug, and mass retailers nationwide.)

sally hansen complete salon manicure in mermaids tale, $6.49 – i normally stay away from super glitters, but the teal tones in this one really speak to me. i’m envisioning the possibilities of an accent nail flanked by my favorite navy lacquer.

tom ford brow sculptor, $42 - brow goddess cara delevigne’s makeup artist recommends that for filling brows in it’s best to use a cream textured product for a natural look. tom ford’s option is serious¬†and i think it’s high time i made the investment.

stephanie johnson alex sparkle cosmetic in geneva black, $48 – shimmering black sequins set against a feathery faux fur? what’s not to love! in truth, i’ve got my eye on this beauty to use as a cocktail clutch because it’s way too pretty to just keep on my vanity.

rms beauty buriti bronzer, $28 – the prettiest cream bronzer that i ever did see, i absolutely must have this iridescent brown in my collection. reviews claim that it’s light and non-greasy but it’s the COLOR that has me crazily swooning.

tata harper resurfacing mask, $55 – my skin needs treating when the weather turns cold. when my skin gets dry, my pores seal up and i’m left with a lovely crop of zits. this resurfacing mask promises to exfoliate and refresh without irritating. sign me up!

rms beauty un cover-up

i’m always looking for that perfect allover concealer: one workhorse formula to cover under eye circles and mask imperfections. it’s tough to find one that isn’t too thick, too heavy, too dry, and finding the right shade? can be damn near impossible.

the beauty of rms un cover-up is that it’s packed with natural moisturizers and disappears onto skin. it blends flawlessly and melts in, brightening the bags and buffing away my post-acne discolorations. it also wears like a dream, feeling featherweight as it lasts all day.

i’d recommend this pot of gold to anyone. if your skin is in mostly good shape with a few problem areas, you could use this to hide them, and set with translucent powder for a very fresh-faced look. if you’ve got lots to cover, pair this under your favorite foundation. while i haven’t tried it yet, it can also be used as a light foundation all on its own.

if you’ve got stuff to “un” cover, you can find rms online at spirit beauty lounge.
