Once again I find myself with very few items on my “I NEED THIS OR I WILL DIE” list this month, but of course I was able to rustle up four items that I would certainly be more than happy to own. These are -
01: MAC Blot Powder – For some reason I have been really curious about this lately. I’ve heard great things about MAC’s blot powder and now I’m curious to try it for myself. 02: Seven Wonders Detangling Moisture Spray – My hair has been a knotted wreck lately, and I don’t know why. I don’t have 1 detangling spray in my repetoire and as I am loving the rest of the Seven Wonders range I figured I might as well give their detangling spray a shot!
Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream – I have been trying this out after being sent a small sample by Adore Beauty
and I have to say, it’s amazing. I can’t wait to buy a full sized tube for myself. 04:
Ultraceuticals Even Skintone Serum – I ran out of this over the weekend and nearly wept. It’s one of my holy grail skin care items and I have a hard time living without it! Must. Replace. Immediately.

So I made a promise to myself that I would avoid purchasing anything Christmas themed until at least November 1st. But that certainly won’t stop me window shopping…! I am a sucker for Christmas themed things. So when companies like Philosophy, LUSH and Bath + Body Works bring out their limited edition Christmas range I go nuts. Most of the full Christmas range isn’t out yet, but here are a couple of products that I’ve got my eye on at the moment…
Yes, that is a homemade cookie scented candle. The genius that thought that scent up deserves a raise. And a kiss. And a cookie. I just hope that it smells as good as it sounds!

How much would you pay for a really great Orgasm? Does $69 sound reasonable? (hahaha, okay. I get it, I get it.) That is how much the NARS Orgasm Illuminator will be retailing for on it’s heavily anticipated release in Australia on Monday 8th March. Yes, next Monday. Within my no-buy challenge period. The universe is cruel folks. Cruel. Here comes the pretty…
I was first introduced to NARS Cosmetics during my trip to the USA last year. I was shopping in New York and was served by one of the friendliest and most helpful sales staff I’ve ever come across. We discussed the beauty of NARS products while she did my makeup and educated me on the sly ways of the NYC cab driver. (apparently I was tipping too much) She convinced me to try out NARS Laguna (my first ever bronzer) and applied the prettiest purple eyeshadow that took away the horror of my unattractive red eyes (24 hour flight time, a quick nap and straight into shopping will do that to a girl). I always think of her when I shop for NARS products, and I am sure she is jumping for joy somewhere in Henri Bendell between the scary older Joan Rivers type women plugging their body exfoliant and floor to ceiling bookcase full of Ray Ban sunglasses.
Cue the groovy stats:
Within the US alone, 2 Orgasm™ products are sold each minute.
There are more than 400 Nars Orgasm™ product searches conducted on Google each day.
“Introducing NEW Nars Orgasm Illuminator, a scintillatingly sheer, weightless fluid that instantly makes skin refreshed, radiant and glowing. Flecks of gold, peach and pink shimmer softly diffuse light, melting into the skin to allow natural luminosity to shine through. Apply NEW Nars Orgasm Illuminator all over the face for a barely-there, healthy glow. Use as a highlighter for a glimmering accent on cheekbones. Layer it under, over, or mix directly with Nars Foundations for added overall brilliance. Wear it on the neck, shoulders or décolleté for a silky, subtle, eye-catching sheen.”
I need this in my life. I am hoping I come into some unexpected money in the next fortnight or so. How much do you make selling a kidney? I’ll let you know when I find out and after I duck into Mecca Cosmetica to buy myself some of this sweet NARS goodness!
