a list of wishes

...A wishlist. Because I want so many things but need none of them and really can't justify any purchases at the moment, so if I had an endless flow of cash this is what I would buy without hesitation.
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7
1. I went to see Wicked in London's West End recently (ohmygod it was the best thing in the world), and now that it's become my new favourite musical I want everything to do with the whole parallel Oz world that focuses on the "villain", if you've got no idea what I'm talking about you can read the plot here. Although the storyline of the film this palette is inspired by is not the same, it's still based in the land of Oz which is close enough, right?
Urban Decay have done an amazing job with the packaging, and as beautiful as the Theodora palette is I have to say that I see myself reaching for the colours in the Glinda palette more often.

2. Yes, I want a cake stand. But imagine how adorable all my nail polishes would look on it, or any makeup items for that matter. The one I've pictured is here, but I also like the look of this, this and this.

3. Another Urban Decay palette, the Naked Basics. I've resisted buying both the original Naked palette and the Naked 2 since eyeshadow has always been an optional extra in my makeup routine, but matte eyeshadows are my favourite kind and will definitely get a lot of use.

4. I first mentioned these in this post and I honestly think that they're the most beautiful pair of boots I've ever set my eyes on - even better than the ones in this haul if that's possible. They're on sale too, and I just picked up last month's Elle magazine which came with a £20 Kurt Geiger gift card (which frustratingly doesn't work on sale items, but it means I could get a freebie as well, worth £20). I think that I've just talked myself into buying these.

5. Yet another palette, this one from Nars called The Happening and I'm sure you've heard of it as it's sold out almost everywhere hence why I haven't linked it. Having never owned anything from Nars, this looks like a great way to ease myself into the brand with the palette containing both the Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer as well as four eyeshadows - perfect for travelling!

6. Real Techniques brushes. What makes them even more tempting is that I stumbled upon an American website,, that has the brushes for much cheaper due to prices being lower in the States although i doubt postage will be the cheapest. Pictured is the Core Collection (only £12!), Stippling Brush, Expert Face Brush and Blush Brush but I've also got my eyes set on the Deluxe Crease Brush that annoyingly is only available in the Starter Set.

7. I still haven't caved and bought any of the Apocalips yet, although the shade Stellar has been staring me in the face every time I walk past the Rimmel stand in Superdrug. I know I'll eventually buy a few one, I just hope that I don't got crazy and convince myself that I need every single colour.

Have you been eyeing up something out of your price range lately?


  1. I'm desperate to get the Urban Decay Naked palette but can't afford it, I'm hoping some kind soul (I.e. my mother) will take pity on me on my birthday and get it for me x

  2. OOh love this post, I would have all of them too xx

  3. Those boots are GORGEOUS. I've seen some similar ones in Primark lately! Might be worth checking out :)

  4. This is an amazing wishlist! So many of these are on mine :) can't wait to get the naked basics. iHerb delivery is surprisingly okay! It's only $4 for non-tracked delivery which is like £2.50 :) I just ordered the brushes from there myself, can't wait til they arrive! x
