If I Had A Lot of Money Wishlist #1


I've been wanting a high-end quad for a while, and I think Chanel is my poison of choice! The colours are a good combo with lots of different looks that I'd actually wear, and I love the little domes :) I know there's been a bit of controversy with what GossMakeUpArtist said and while I do agree that it's unfair - we've got to make do. A possible Duty Free purchase perhaps?

M&S Rectangular Mirror Jewellery Box (for make up of course :P) £49.50

An accidental find when I was at Bluewater with Emma, I think this would be perfect on my vanity as a make up case! Ideally, all my make up would fit in this, but let's face it - that's not happening any time soon :P I still think it'd be very good for storing the most-used products and doing a Shopping The Stash once in a while. I think my favourite part about this box are the gem handles!



I've been lemming for this for months! Need I say more?


This as well, I've been lemming for ages, alongside the Koh Gen Do Aqua foundation, which I'm still choosing between. I still have some gift vouchers - providing they have my shade (which is a 50/50 chance as many Japanese brands only cater for NC20-ish shades) so a possible purchase for the summer :)



MAC 150 £32.50

As much as I do like my Real Techniques powder brush, as it applies powder unrealistically evenly, I just feel it's not a 'dusting' brush. Sometimes it's just too dense and feel that it's moving the foundation underneath unless I hold it at the very end. I've been impressed at how much better a condition all my MAC brushes are in, despite being my oldest brushes, and feel like going back to my 'roots' let's say, and having a bit of a splurge. Powder brushes are an essential - I think I can justify it! :)



WHSmith Pink Nested Storage Boxes £10.99


This has been on my wishlist since I saw Vivianna Does Make Up's collection video, where she puts her 'stock' in a big box, and rotates what she uses in a smaller basket. I thought this would work for me as I've actually lost track what I have in my room as they're scattered everywhere, and I think this organization will help me use stuff up. I love the pink these come in - now the problem is finding an WHSmith that has them!

  2. I have some WHSmith storage boxes in cakey sweet print that I use to store all my art supply/stationery stuff - one big one for art supplies/stationery, one medium size for stickers (I am a big kid at heart and have a ridiculous amount) and a thin one for my important documents. I have to say they're incredibly strong and sturdy. Definitely a good purchase and I got all 3 for £12 :D Also I really want a MAC brush! x

  4. Love all your picks Yu. Avon True Color eyeshadow quads look so identical to the Chanel quads so perhaps you can take a look at some of them? Granted you won't get that ''I'm so rich'' feeling when you purchase them but sure why not right? ;)

    ps I'm not an Avon rep nor am I associated with them- I just really love the brand. :)

  5. Nice Post :) I think make-up brushes are on mine.

    Though I have the Chanel quad (a different one), I don't think it's that great. The quality is no better than the MAC/UD eye shadows I own. I think Bourjois do a similar one too.

  6. That Chanel quad was one of the first high end products I ever bought and I absolutely love it! It is my go to eyeshadow look, and although it is a lot of money I don't regret buying it! The only thing I think is a bit of shame about it is that you can't buy them as single eyeshadows, and now one of my colours has run out if I want to buy it again I have to buy the whole quad. This might not be the case for all of Chanel's quads though xx
