Since I’m on a pretty strict September No-Buy/Low-Buy, I’ve spent more time looking wistfully at products than purchasing them. To battle my constant stream of wants, I’ve decided to collect them all into a weekly/bimonthly/whatever ‘wish list’ of sorts to be evil and give you all some great products to add to your wish list. You’re welcome.
Clinique - Black Honey Beauty Collection - $29
Black Honey is one of Clinique’s most recognizable and popular shades, so it’s no surprise that this fall they’re featuring a collection of the most popular products in the Black Honey shade. The thing is, Sephora had a very similar collection last year with almost every single item. The only new addition is the quickliner instead of mascara, but I think that everybody has a few Clinique mascaras in their makeup drawer, so it’s for the best. The gloss and lipstick resemble a sort of blackened raisin hue, the nail polish is a red wine/oxblood colour, and the quickliner is a great, softer alternative to a jet black liner.
The damage? Only $29 at Sephora.
Zoya Ignite Collection
Don’t just settle for boring, leather inspired creme shades this fall, let your fingers do some dazzlin’! The Zoya Ignite collection is a six piece set with a variety of metal metallics with some bite. With a copper, gold, eggplant, grey, dark red and indigo, you’ve got all the expected fall colours but with some extra shimmer and shine. My favourite of the bunch is Yuna, a grey with copper and gold shimmer in it.You can see Temptalia’s swatches here.
The damage? $50 for the full set at Nail Polish Canada or $9.75 each.
MAC Cosmetics Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection
Do you see me shiver with anticipation? That’s because it’s only a few weeks until MAC Cosmetics releases their Rocky Horror Picture collection to celebrate 40 years of sex, drag queens, aliens and chainsaws. AKA. 40 years of the Rocky Horror Picture Show!
I don’t even know what I’m most excited about with this collection. Some of the products will join the permanent collection, so I’m leaning towards the limited edition ‘Bad Fairy’ nail polish, ‘It’s Not Easy Having a Good Time’ burgundy pigment and the ‘Frank-n-Furter’ lipstick which is a matte raspberry, but I can’t decide! Click here to visit Temptalia for a great list of which products are permanent and limited edition!
Damage? All depends on what you’re buying. The collection goes on sale on September 29 online and October 2 in stores.
Women in Clothes Essay Collection
Ok, so this isn’t a beauty product BUT it’s an anthology made up of writing from over 600 women about clothes and what they mean. Curated by Sheila Heti who wrote 2010’s How Should a Person Be?, this anthology promises to be a thought-provoking and insightful read on the clothes that we wear, and how we view ourselves and other through a lens of fashion and outerwear. It’s on my fall reading list and you should add it to yours.
Damage? $22 at Chapters.
That’s it for this week! What are you looking forward to this month? Holiday palettes are out soon!
