Do Leprechauns Bring Gifts?

Because if they do, this is what I'd want:

Butter London Nail Lacquer in Blagger $14

This was recommended to me by Rachel on Twitter when I asked for a vibrant blue nail polish with minimal to no shimmer. I googled it and swooned. It's exactly the color I was envisioning and although I'm not usually one for blue nails, I think it'd be gorgeous in the spring and summer :) I'm not impressed by the price, though, since after shipping it would cost close to $20, but I'm thinking that OPI's Ogre the Top Blue may be similar and half the price?

bareMinerals Eyecolor

Bare Escentuals Eyecolor in Nude Beach $13

Described as a warm sand, Nude Beach appears to be an eyeshadow that has such a high-frost finish that it almost looks wet when applied (based on swatches I've seen). My. Eyelids. Need. This.

 Face And Body Foundation

MAC Face and Body Foundation $32.50

I can hear the whispers already. Doesn't she know how awful MAC foundations are?! It's going to make her break out! Yes, I know. I actually vaguely recall my college roommate telling me that this particular foundation broke her out too. But still, so many people seem to love it - that's got to mean something, right? 

Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder $52

I'm not exactly sure why I want this. I just do. Maybe it's because I have a preconceived notion that everything Chanel is amazing? Yup, that must be it. That, and the fact that if it's good enough for Pixiwoo's face, it sure as hell is good enough for mine! ;)

NARS Brush #27 - Yachiyo

NARS #27 Yachiyo Brush $50

Last time I was at the NARS counter, I bought Taos blush, an uber pigmented, warm, shimmery red. The SA tried to convince me that I needed the Yachiyo brush in order to achieve the perfect application but for once, I practiced self-control and convinced myself that I could go without it. But, you know what, friendly NARS girl? You made an impression on me and your words have not left me, despite it being months since we last spoke. Yachiyo, I may very well bring you home one day.

Anything here you've tried? As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. If you see the leprechaun, tell him I will take the same thing as you, make it easy on him hehe

  2. I wish leprechauns brought gifts...or at least some golden coins? hehe.

  3. Ohhh the yachiyo is definitely next on my brush list - I don't just want it, I NEED it!! And I vote against f+b as we seem to have quite similar skins in relation to MAC foundations and it broke me out :( Which is so annoying as I wanted to love it! xxx

  4. All M.A.C. foundations work different for everyone, the F&B is my personal favourite :)

  5. I don't think they bring gifts, but they do show you the pot of gold! If you find that all your wish list prayers will be answered!

  6. That Nars brush is a must have, I would have never even thought about buying it for myself, but a fellow YT friend gave me one as a gift and I as really grateful too, I use it w my blush all the time. Its a really nice brush to own. I had no idea it was so $$.

  7. Hey, 'Blue My Mind' by H&M is a lovely blue shade too, it's more of a purpley blue than this one but is much cheaper! I love it!

  8. @Mrs.Makeup: If he does bring gifts, I'll be sure to send him your way! hehe

    @tiffyama: Ooo..yes, that would be nice! Knowing me, I'd probably use those gold coins to buy makeup!

    @Nicola: Oh dear o_0 Maybe I'll try to get a sample or something first? I've never broken out from any makeup product before but you're right, we do have very similar skintypes so I should be careful. Thanks, my love!

    @Elke: I agree and I'm glad to hear you love it!

    @Jessica: That would be amazing! I wonder where I could cash in a pot of gold...

    @LVMAKEUP: You're so lucky!

    @Lindsay: I will check it out! Thank you so much for the recommendation!

  9. I love the look of that shadow... I'm such a neutral shadows whore! Never have enough...
