Lust List #2 (Birthday Edition)

[ 3 ] Comments

It’s funny to think how summer is almost over. I suppose since I’ve started working full time and the awful bi-polar weather in Norcal I didn’t even really grasp that summer was here. I’ve decided that Norcal weather is such a tease! In June we had a heat wave week so I got giddy with summer dresses and shorts only to be stuck wearing sweater in July. Eeeks! Of course, I do live in a cubicle so it is quite chilly.

Well we are in August territory now! I am head over heals about August as I’ll be heading home to MN for a week, my brother’s birthday, my boyfriend’s birthday and 20 days in counting to MY Birthday! Golly so many birthday means lots of cake and shopping! : )

It will be such a relief that this is the first birthday in ages where I won’t be taking summer finals or writing long essays where I see the sunrise. Also August is MN state fair month!

Well here’s my updated Lust List #2 – Enjoy!
Lust List Definition – Stuff that I find interesting and I’m lusting over that maybe you would find interesting too. This particular list has a lot of limited edition and exclusive items so if they are interesting to you, I’d highly recommend to snatch them up soon.
Everything is curated is my opinion.

As always FEEL Free to comment below about your own lust lists or if you have tried these products and if they are worth lusting over <3

1) Sirius Skinsonic Facial Cleansing Brush System $49.99
Purchase at Sirius Online Store
The Skinsonic set comes with battery powered brush + 5 removable brush heads
I’ve watched and read bunch of reviews and they are raving about this product! I hear it’s very comparable to Clarisonic brush set ($150+) and approves the skin. Well lately due to stress and traveling my skin would love some more love. They also have a 100% guarantee that you’ll love it and you can return if you don’t.

The only con is that I believe you can only purchase it online at Sirius Website.

2) Stila Beach Palette – Wonderful in Waikiki $14 (Limited Edition)
Purchase at Ulta, Sephora and

Stila Cosmetics has been coming out with this neat travel palettes. They are affordable, slim and comes with 4 shadows + 2 blushes. This seems to me to scream summer here I come. Have you tried it? I’ve swatched other Stila travel palettes but I find their shadows to be a bit chalky. But recently in my Birchbox I received a Stila shadow in Mahogany it was buttery loveliness.

3) Sephora Exclusive – Benefit Stay Put Mini Set $10
Purchase only at Sephora stores and
First off I love that Sephora offers these mini deluxe sample sets. I love trying out new products but I hate the breaking the bank to do it. I really interested in the Benefit RSVP cream eyeshadow in this set as it claims to be crease-less. It’s a gorgeous color!

4) Smashbox Limitless Lipstain in Guava $23
Purchased at Ulta, Sephora and Smashbox’s Website
Is a lipstain worth $23 dollars? Heck probably not but this color is the quintessential summer color. I saw the pixiwoo sister do a haul on these lipstains and I had to go to Sephora to try it out. Man it’s a It’s bright coral-red and it looks wonderful. Ever since I’ve been lusting after it. If you do decide to pick up I’d recommend buying off Smashbox online website as on Tues/Thursday they give you a free full size gift + free shipping!

(Wet N Wild Dream Catcher Limited Edition Palettes – now on display in your stores!)
5) Wet N Wild Limited Edition Color-Icon Trios $2.99
Purchase at most drugstores (CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid)

Trios I’m lusting for – Gilded Ages, Dancing in the Clouds & We’re Blasting off!
The shadows are pigmented, easy to apply, buttery soft, and a blow out price! Only issues that limited editions are well limited and hard to come by. So I’ve been searching to no avail as everywhere around me is sold out. 🙁
6) Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-blush in Tipsy $25 
Purchased at Ulta & Sephora & QVC
I saw on Ebrushka’s blog post that she adores the Tarte blush in Tipsy (coral). It very beautiful coral and I’m intrigued by their 12-hour claims.

7) Ulta Exclusive – Lorac Naked Lace Collection $28
Purchase only at Ulta
The kits comes with 2 eyeshadows, 1 rose color blush, 3 liquid lipsticks and cute clutch. This is from Lorac new fall collection. This summer I purchased Lorac tantalize palette and I love it. I don’t believe I’ve used eye shadows are so buttery, blendable and complimentary to each other. If you don’t have the tantalize palette I’d highly recommend as it’s much cheaper than buying single Lorac shadows and creates a great work friendly look. I think that the naked lace collection will following suit in awesomeness!

8 ) Microplane Zester/Grater $12
Available on and other stores that sell food preparation tools
Ok this one isn’t makeup related at all. This is for the foodies out there. For some reason all my latest recipes have been calling for lemon zest or to grated items! Well have you tried zest a lemon with a peeler, it takes forever and is horridly anti-climatic. So if you need to zest and grate I’d recommend this tool. Ha I really need to get one.

Well that’s my top 8 ….hope you enjoyed and found some new things to check out

I used it to zest a lemon for the compound butter for a smoked salmon eggs benedict for Will’s bday breakfast, lol. I will put it in my blog, which i have not used for a very long time haha.
