The January Weekend Wishlist

Today being Sunday and all, and me, being exhausted by my return to my first full week back to classes and all that, there was no way that I was going to get the preparation and adequate photography in order to get up a more traditional full-on post. However, I’m determined not to get completely slack on my resolution for more consistent posts in the new year, so I’m sharing the few products that are the highest on my radar at the moment.


Paula’s Choice Calm Redness Relief Calm Repairing Serum ($32 US): So this is one of the products that isn’t exactly a wishlist item because I’ve technically already ordered it – and this is by no means the first time I’ve fudged on the rules a little bit in this way. I’ve been beyond eager to try products from the Calm range as soon as I heard of its launch, as they are targeted towards dehydrated sensitive skin, and I couldn’t resist nabbing up this hyaluronic acid rich serum.

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation ($25): This foundation is definitely otherworldly expensive for the drugstore (especially because it only contains half the usual amount of product) but I’ve heard such great things about this lightweight luminous base lately, I’m tempted to try out their take on the cushion compact.

Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil ($112): I can hardly believe that I’m even considering going for a $112 dollar facial oil but over the last month or so, I’ve gotten back into my love affair with facial oils, and this essential oil free one seems universally deemed the best of them according to many. I feel the need to try this oil just to know if it really is better and more concentrated in nutrients and antioxidants and I’m thinking about it for the Spring Sephora VIB Sale.

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Incandescent Strobe Light ($48): I’ve always been a glow fiend, but in the last six months or so, I’ve become a highlighter fiend. After resisting the Hourglass holiday palette that contained a sneak peek of their first traditional highlighter, I’m really tempted to go for one of their newly released shades of the product. I’m really eager to try this subtle pink-hue subtle highlighter because of my love of Hourglass’ powders, its appealing fair shade and the promise of subtlety – as in, it might be more flattering on imperfections.

Bath & Body Works 3 Wick Candle in Mocha Latte Swirl ($24): In the last couple of months, I’ve been burning candles obsessively with pleasure, and as Bath & Body Works has offered great sales, I’ve stocked up on a good amount of new candles as well. By no stretch of the imagination can I truly justify purchasing another candle, but I’ve been reading up on the test candles that Bath & Body Works will be releasing most of pronto – and one of these candles that I’m most intrigued to try is this re-promoted classic latte scent. I’m a massive latte fan and I’m rather excited at the prospect of burning a candle of the same scent.

What do you have your eye one at the moment?
