I know, I planned in advance. Are you impressed?
You shouldn’t be.
The sad reality is that the next time I go out to hunt for beauty products, it will have to be in February. Living in rural England means that any trip to the nearest Boots is more of a trek than a trip. As for visiting any Laura Mercier stockists, I can forget it until my next trip to Bristol. Which takes this long:
Ah, what I do for love.
Anyway, here’s a cheeky breakdown of my wishlist for February:
Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation – £33 – Tried it at the beginning of the year; fell in love with it; must now buy it. I’ve still got some Christmas money saved up, so this will be a reasonably guilt-free purchase!
Travalo Refillable Perfume Atomiser – £12.49 – This was on my Christmas wish list, and I feel that it’s really about time that I bought it. This is especially true when I consider how much wincing I did when I packed my heavy, cumbersome, and most importantly glass perfume bottle into a travel bag last week. It really comes down to this: buy a Travalo, or continue to wrap my Chanel in four pairs of socks whenever I visit my boyfriend. I think I prefer the former option.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – £4.19 – In fairness, I keep trying to buy this, but they never have the right shade in stock. Get your bloody game face on, Superdrug, for goodness’ sake.
The Beautyblender Classic – £16.00 – The original and the best, or so I’m reliably told. I’ve been fascinated by this product for years, but thanks to dabbling in cheap (and inadequate) makeup sponges, I never took the leap to the premium version. In fact, I probably won’t take the leap in February, either. I feel this is going to be a long-term fixture in my lust list.
Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Perfecting Primer – Hopefully Free – Whilst hunting online for the perfect primer, I’ve heard amazing things about this little beauty. I’m hoping that when I go to Space NK to pick up the above foundation, they’ll put a blob of this in a pot for me to try. “Hoping” being the operative word.
Benefit The Porefessional: Agent Zero Shine – ? – It’s coming soon and I can’t wait to try it. Clearly this beauty blogging thing is starting to take its toll!
Benefit ‘They’re Real’ Mascara – I got this for Christmas, but because I’m a twit, I’ve put it down somewhere in a Monday morning brain haze and now can’t find it. Finding it again is on my wishlist. I’m fairly sure I didn’t leave it in Bristol, so that’s a start.
Clarins ‘Huile Lotus’ Face Treatment Oil – Hopefully Free – In order to take full advantage of Clarins’ “See if you like it” initiative, which I mentioned yesterday, I just have to try this oil. Hopefully, next time I pitch up at Boots, they won’t have run out of samples!
Who’s that girl?
WHO’S THAT GIRL?

WHO’S THAT GIRL?
New Girl. If E4 don’t start showing it again soon, I might have to cry. This is what drives people to illegal downloads. Maybe one day those media bigwigs will work out a way of providing a legitimate online streaming facility. That way us little Angleterrians could pay to watch ‘New Girl’ and ‘Mindy’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ at the same time as they are broadcast in the USA, and we wouldn’t have to wait months and months for UK telly networks to pull their trousers up. I’d like to be morally comfortable and stay up to date with my favourite TV shows, thank you muchly. Also, why are there only two seasons of ‘Modern Family’ on Netflix?
I feel I may have digressed somewhat.
That was my beauty wishlist, which at some point developed into a desperate request for pay-as-you-go lighthearted comedy. Not that Game of Thrones is lighthearted comedy…never mind.
How do you feel about the way US telly is broadcast in your country, or foreign telly in the US? I imagine America had to wait a while for the likes of Sherlock, which can’t have been fun. We all had to wait quite long enough for that as it is.
And speaking of waiting, who else is excited for the new Porefessional powder?! Let us all know if you get your hands on it early.
