100 Day Spending Ban | Update and Wishlist #1

I may only be on my 4th day of no spending but I wanted to have my updates and wishlist on a Sunday so here is my first update post!

There isn't too much to 'update' you on. I haven't spent any money on anything so far. You might see me chatting about orders coming through the post on twitter but they were ordered before the 3rd of January. Also yesterday I went to my grandparents and had a 'second Christmas' and got lots of lovely things. I have no reason to be buying anything at the moment.

Now onto my wishlist, I might be only 4 days in but there are a few things I would like to try! The object of doing these wishlists is so that at the end of my ban I can look back and see what I still want and I will treat myself to some of those things with the saved money, not all of it though!

Wishlist


MAC Lipstick in Hot Gossip (source)

My first ever MAC Lipstick arrived the other day I already love it! After going through loads of colours and being sent swatches and pictures by Nuala I knew that my second MAC Lipstick would have to be Hot Gossip. A gorgeous pink, darker than lovelorn (my first lipstick) but still not in your face.

MUA Pro Base Conceal and Brighten Kit in Porcelain (source)
As soon as MUA announced this new product on their twitter I knew I had to have it! I've been struggling with darkness under my eyes recently, most probably done to stress. This looks like it could be very helpful. I'm looking forward to seeing some reviews + swatches from other bloggers. 

Dior Poudre Shimmer (Highlighter/Blush) in Rose Diamond (source)
This is definitely not a recent want, this has been on my wishlist for a little while now. Everyone talks about the shade Amber Diamond but I fell in love with Rose Diamond. I've been obsessed with highlighters recently and I know that if I don't buy this at the end of my spending ban then I will treat myself to it when I finish Year 11.

Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Flared Mascara (source)
When I went shopping in town last this was the mascara that I wanted but I however bought a different Volum' Express one as it was on offer. I still really want this mascara though as I've heard such good things about it. I really enjoy using my Maybelline mascara and can't wait to try more.

That's this week's surprisingly long update and wishlist post! I'll see you again next week, same time, same place!

Thanks for reading,
Shona x

  3. The dior highlighter is beautiful! My mum has it and it just glows, and it's much warmer than amber diamond :) Good luck with your spending ban, I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun with some treat shopping when it's over! What date does it finish?

    1. Isn't it just! I have quite pale skin as well so I tend to go for blush more than bronzer so rose diamond is definitely better for myself :) Thank you, I think I definitely will! The 12th or the 13th of April, can't remember which one! xx
