Despite my resolution to buy less and save more - fearing that a double-dip recession has started - I read blogs. When I do, I develop the I-wants faster than Charlie can break through a screened porch panel. I did some Web browsing this week and started a new wish list. Actually, in one case, I bought already. Here's what tempted me.
Fab over Forty "sold me" at least two of the new Dior Smoky 3 Couleur Eyeshadows. Look at her photo above, published with her feature, which includes all the trio names. I pre-ordered two. These will be a huge hit.
The Non-Blonde purchased the one Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Clouds Highlighting Liquid I don't have. As a result, I've started my next Zuneta shopping list.
A photo The Beauty Look Book posted in a feature about Chanel's Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Taupe left me lusting for Dior's Aztec Chocolate Nail Polish.
First The Non-Blonde tempted me to order Rachel Zoe's Exude Lipstick. BeautyXposé did it again. Stop, my friends! I'm already lusting over her new clothing line at Neiman Marcus.
I ordered the new Fresh Passion Sugar Lip Treatment the minute Product Girl told us it was available at Sephora. I've been waiting.
Eyeliner on a Cat published a fabulous interview with perfumer Mandy Aftel of Aftelier Perfumes. I'm reading Mandy's book, and I loved seeing her cat Stan. Now I have to purchase some of her fragrance.
The Olfactorist featured three rose fragrances I haven't tried. I'm in trouble. I think I've spent more on fragrance in the last month than I spent on makeup. You know that's significant!
When I went to Saks Fifth Avenue at Chevy Chase today, I cut through the handbag department to get to Chanel. I stopped and drooled over a Gucci Bordeaux handbag. Somehow, I've got to find something similar at a lower price. I haven't been able to get that bag out of my mind. That means more shopping. More shopping means more spending. It may be time for an intervention.
