Down and Out Beauty: Wish List

1. These beautifully delicate paper lashes ($19) would be a fantastic addition to a Halloween costume or you could snip just the ends off and add to your outer lashes for a special night out.

2. Lip Tar ($13) goes on like a gloss but dries to a satin finish. You apply the tiniest amount with a lip brush and it stays for hours. Hush would be a great choice for brides and wouldn't come off on your hubby during the big kiss.

3. Drier Fall and Winter skin can look so dull. This Iced Gold highlighter ($30) is pearly not glittery so it can be used on all age groups for that lit from within glow.

4. I nearly cried when I found out Chanel was discontinuing ProLumiere foundation. I just tried a sample of Perfection Lumiere ($55) and I can dry my tears. Its like ProLumiere but with an improved formula and blends effortlessly.

5. I am massively into vintage compacts ($28) at the moment. Compacts from the 1950's are really affordable and if you find an empty one, you can add your own loose powder.

6. I love this brush ($16)! It can be used for highlighting, contouring, powder, and blush. Its a great value considering its MAC counterpart is $53.

Now I want to try Lip Tar! I have never used Chanel foundation, but I think Dior Airflash foundation is the most brilliant thing in the world. Unfortunately it's $60, but it's worth it. I've used Dior's liquid foundation as well, but I just prefer the spray stuff or Bare Minerals cause it feels less cakey.

I love reading about people's beauty finds :)

I have a tube of the Lip Tar. I like the color a LOT, and I love how easily it goes on, but it is NOWHERE near indelible. It comes off really easily, especially if you put lip-gloss on top but even if you don't, it'll come off on your fingers if you touch them to your lips.

The shipping OCC charges is exorbitant, too. They did just lower it a bit, but still. I much prefer the lip stain I got from Sephora.

That said, OCC's nail polishes are to die for.
