I Want, But Can’t, So I Shan’t

We all have a wishlist. God knows mine is a few pages long. I have bought some skincare and makeup recently, and after surveying my current stash, I can’t justify buying more. Here are a few things I really want, but darn it, I know I can’t have them. So, I created a board, just so I can drool all over my keyboard.




1. Look at that Tom Ford brush set. If only it wasn’t so blardy expensive.

2. I don’t know why I want a bronzer because I hardly use them, but so pretty! It’s Guerlain Holiday btw.

3. Sunday Riley Breathable Tinted Primer. Heard it from Lisa Eldridge and I swear that woman makes me want everything.

4. Tom Ford Crimson Noir just because. No logical explanation why I’d need another lipstick.

5. Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm because I’ve read so much about it, and it’s supposed to be good for the skin. One day, I WILL scratch this off my list.

6. RMS Living Luminizer for the most believable glow, because you know, I like to fake it.

There you go, a few things I know I shouldn’t have, and for once, I won’t buy them on impulse. For now.

    I find that sometimes making a list like this kind of purges the want from the system. It’s oddly therapeutic. Of course, it can feed it too so hopefully it’s the former in this case. 🙂

    I want that Guerlain bronzer too because the spots of pink are so peppy. And I don’t have a Guerlain bronzer and everyone says it’s the best. Wah wah.

    • I don’t have a Guerlain bronzer either and you’re so right! Everyone says it’s the best!! And I want it just because I want to say, I have it too! That’s so dumb. And you know what? I just managed to talk myself out of it. Hahahahah!

  • Ahhh that TF brush set!!! I refused to feel them when I had the opportunity, because I knew I’d end up buying something if I did! The Omorovicza Cleansing Balm is really good! I’m on my second pot, and I’m about to repurchase their Cleansing Mask 😉

    • I blame you for the Omorovicza lemming, Sunny. You rave about it so much it makes me so curious. Furthermore, if it’s good for my skin, why not eh? I will purchase this one day, after I’m done with my Bobbi Brown Extra Balm Rinse 🙂 That will justify purchasing it, because I will really need it then!

  • Making wishlists does help, haha. I want that Living Luminizer, too!

    • I’m hoping drooling over all these things for a while will purge it out of my system. Seems like it might be working!

  • I always have a wishlist going too. That RMS luminizer is on mine too! I just got a blush and LOVE it. I thought I’d want that Guerlain bronzer but bah-it’s so peachy.

    • The more I’m replying to comments, the more I’m purging these wants out of my system. This is awesome!

    Haha good title. That’s kind of why I do my wishlist-style posts – products I want to own and talk about but really can’t afford to buy all of. RMS Luminizer… I muuuusttt haveee

    • HAHAHAHA… this is the first time I play with Polyvore too. Kinda fun, and so much faster than using Photoshop. I can’t justify buying makeup, but that Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm will be mine one day 🙂

  • RMS Luminizer is on my want but cant list as well!! He he

    • We’re on the same page, Ellie 🙂

  • You had me at Guerlain! If I could I would buy an entire counter display! 🙂

    • Hahahaha! Yeah, if I could, I would too!

  • oooh lucky this works for you!
    for me it is dangerous to create such list! it often turns into “to buy” list. T,.T
    i don’t remember when was the last time i had a logical explanation for wanting any lippie…… ;p

    • It’s crazy isn’t it? Lipsticks are so easy to buy. LOL! And yeah, I’m glad this works. I’m definitely purging some wants. It’s fantastic!

  • Nice choices Lily, Oh that bronzer is so pretty! And the brush set seems so superb. Thank goodness they don’t sell Tom Ford makeup ranges here… But I’m a bit of a sucker for Guerlain bronzers, they are so good. xx

    • That’s what everyone says, that Guerlain bronzers are really good. That’s why I’m curious, because I don’t have one. LOL

  • The Tom Ford brush set.. I KNOW RIGHT???

    • Yup, I KNOW!!!!!!!!

  • LOLLL loving the title ;)Out of curiosity, how much is that TF brush set exactly? Is i the $350 one?

    hmmm my wishlist…all perfumes right now. Diptyque Philosykos and a full size of Tocca Florence. Oh yeah, and like 50 candles *gulp*

    • Oh, this TF brush set is the full set of 12, and it costs 650 POUNDS! Crazy no??
