My Wish List

Here are some items I’ve spotted and would love to try!

1. Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion: Sin:

I saw this on Sephora today. According the product description, “Sin combines incredible staying power with a shimmering champagne hue that complements almost any eyeshadow. This two-in-one beauty miracle can be worn alone to give eyes just a hint of tint for when you’re in a hurry or in need of that “no makeup” look.”

I love the regular Eyeshadow Potion, and this one got excellent reviews.

2. Avon Spectra Lash Mascara:

This reminds me of Maybelline’s old Dial-a-Lash! According to Avon.com, “With the innovative spectra dial, you can customize your lashes to build volume for any occasion or mood. More volume. More options. No clumps or flakes.” The mascara comes in black, brown, black/brown, and navy.

I’m a sucker for new mascaras but will hold off on this one until there are some reviews posted. Has anyone tried this yet?

3. Oscar Blandi Trattamengo al Fango Not many products get a full five-star review on Sephora.com, but this intensive hair conditioner is deeply loved by everyone who raved about it. I’ve tried one other Oscar Blandi product, the Jasmine Smoothing Conditioner, and it was a lifesaver after a nightmarish perm gone wrong. VERY wrong. It didn’t provide a miracle fix for the bad perm, but it made my hair softer, smoother, shinier, and healthier-looking, a minor miracle after being butchered at the salon.

4. Cover Girl Outlast Lipstain:

I saw these at Walmart and am dying to try one. I have a love/hate relationship with lipstick and lipgloss. I love the touch of color and shimmer on my lips, but I hate having to reapply and fuss every time I drink, talk, eat, etc. I end up falling back on trusty old lip balm instead of digging out the lipstick and a mirror from my purse every time it needs to be reapplied.

Cover Girl claims these lipstains “give lips a beautiful, lightweight flush of color that won’t come off, lasting for hours without the heavy look or feel of an ordinary lipstick. Its pen-like precision applicator makes it easy to define your lips-just draw on color without any hassle!”

The reviews on CoverGirl.com are hardly positive, though. Has anyone tried these to give us an opinion?

  1. you know ive already done a post on the CG outlast lipstain and i LOOOOVE them! at this point i have bought 5 different shades. as you would expect your lips may get a tad dry but b/c they have lasting power i’ll just put a clear gloss on top or even chapstick! buy them… i love em’!!

  2. Randi, I remember your review, and that you liked the Cover Girl Lipstain! I was wondering if just a quick dab of lip balm would solve the dryness gripe. Sounds like it would.
