Wish List: Obsessions

I have a problem with wanting, no... needing something as soon as I see a good review about it. I'm sure you all know exactly what I'm talking about. Even if it's a product I have never felt any need for before, I need to have it right that second! Luckily, I'm trying to save money for England so I haven't allowed myself to give into the urge to buy these things (don't ask me how, I'm not even sure how I've managed myself!), but all these products are things I've seen and needed, plus a few extra little things I'm lusting after. You may be able to tell I'm keen for winter from this too.
Wish List: Obession

1. MAC Superglass in Fab Frenzy    2. Rimmel Vinyl Max in Obsession    3. Lime Crime Carrousel gloss in Kaleidoscope
4. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder    5. MAC Rebel
6. Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish Knight Flight and Trend Spotting
7. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle

I saw the MAC Superglass in Fab Frenzy on Kat's blog Kitsch Snitch (post here) recently and fell in love. Ever since I've been a little obsessed over find the perfect purple sparkly lipgloss. The only place I found Fab Frenzy was Strawberrynet, it was cheap but I'm not too convinced about buying from there. I found Rimmel's Vinyl Max in Obsession when on a whim I checked Target for any purple sparkly lip glosses and I'm pretty impressed with how pigmented it is! I think the perfect lipgloss would be Lime Crime's Kaleidoscope Carrousel Lipgloss, but it was limited edition a while ago so I'm not having any luck finding it.
To go with my purple ligploss craze, I'd really like a good dark lipstick. Rebel is a cult favourite with beauty bloggers, and seems like the perfect autumn shade for me. It's more pink based, which means it would probably be a relatively easy to wear dark shade. I spotted this recently on Sophie from Born to Buy's instagram and thought it looked lovely.
I'm running out of my Maybelline Dream Matte powder, and this Rimmel powder seems to be one of everyone's favourites. I've started using my Maybelline powder almost every day over my liquid foundation so I think I can allow myself to at least purchase this.
I found Rimmel's Knight Flight on Dawn from See It, Love it, Swatch it's NOTD post worn under Australis' Speck-tacular top coat, and thought it looked like the perfect purple autumn nail colour. I had a quick look for more posts about it and found the shade Trend Spotting, which is a more pink toned version of Knight Flight.
MAC's Soft and Gentle, like all of their Mineralize Skin Finishes are really popular with the blogging community! If I were to to show you posts I've seen it praised in, we'd seriously be here all day! Lately I've been using my MUA shimmer kisses bronzer as a highlighter, and although it looks lovely, it doesn't blend as well as I would like. I'd love to try a high end highlighter and from all the wonderful things I've read about MAC's MSF, this seems like the perfect product (I'm hoping to pick it up, or any MSF really when I go traveling).

Have you tried any of these products? Aussie ladies: Have you started leaning towards darker shades for autumn yet?

  1. I find my self leaning more towards darker shades but I'm more drawn to deep wine reds but all these look amazing don't think I could ever pull this look off though but I do own MAC Rebel:)

    1. I love deep wines too, definitely need to get some of those for Autumn. I'm a bit scared to wear dark purples/reds/pinks (on anything other than my nails) but Rebel seems like such a wearable shade.

  2. Rebel looks lovely! I love my Mac MSF in soft and gentle, it is so so worth the hype it receives online :)

    1. It's definitely close to the top of my MAC lipstick wish list at the moment. I'm glad it's worth the hype, seeing as it's such an expensive product! Can't wait to get my hands on it (hopefully in duty free, hehe).

  3. Knight Flight is such a gorgeous colour! Thank you so much for the mention :D
    I've been wanting MAC's MSF in Soft and Gentle for the longest time but cannot justify spending so much money on it! Maybe one day I'll splurge and pick it up! x

    1. No problem! It is lovely!
      So many people rave about MAC's Soft and Gentle I'm sure it's worth the money, especially if you regularly use a highlighter... it looks like it would never run out either!
