A Cosmetic Adventure Anyone?

Tonight I did a silly thing and drove all the way into the city (and dragged Tash in with me) to go to an appointment that I didn't have. It's actually next Friday. Wow. What mad intelligent skills I have. Or not... Anyway, it turned out to be a super awesome fun night because we decided to explore the cosmetic level in David Jones. Always very fun. Gosh, I don't know about you but beauty products just make me happy because the packaging is always so pretty. Agree? Yes. Righto. Good. Mooving along now. So sitting here at home, reminiscing on all the lovely smells, the smooth textures and the overall brilliantness of all the powders, moisturisers, perfumes and lipsticks I found, I decided to create a virtual wish list.

So here it goes:

Item No. 1: Hissy Fit Saving Face Tinted Moisturiser

Okay so this product is a winner. I've already tried a sample and adored it. When wearing this product foundation is not necessary (in fact, you can't wear foundation with it anyway) but the point it that it provides a great coverage and a nice glow. And it has an SPF of 50+ which is great for those of us who want to protect our skin from the Sun's naughty UV Rays. Love it. It's only $55 shmackers so I'll be purchasing that one soon.

Item No. 2 Hissy Fit Lip Service So I've also sampled this product and my lips just loved me while using it. It helped them to stay nice and healthy looking, no chapped pout thanks (it has a SPF of 50+ too so no burnt lips. Oh yeah.). I actually like to use my creme blush on my lips and then applying the 'Lip Service' over the top as a gloss. It works quite nicely. I want more of it.

Item No. 3 Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Illuminating

Yaz, the editor of beauty website Primped gave me the splendid idea of teaming this moisturiser up with the Hissy Fit Saving Face. What an awesome idea, thanks Yaz! These products together give you more of a glowy look which I think is really quite nice, as long as you don't go over the top because that's not a good look you know. Ever since Yaz's blog I've been lusting over this tinted moisturiser. It's a good one!

Item No. 4 Bobbi Brown's Intensive Skin Supplement

I had my makeup done at Bobbi Brown the other week and they (the makeup ladies) are amazing and their products aren't too shabby either. This 'Intensive Skin Supplement' is full of vitamins so it's fabulous for your face. Once you've applied it (after you've cleansed and tonned) you feel like you've got a layer of protective goodness all over your face. It feels rad. Really rad. You can just feel it doing your skin a world of good and I want it. Now. But at around $110ish (I can't remember the exact price) it's not your everyday beauty purchase. I'll have to wait a little while for this baby....

Item No. 5 DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom

This one is for Tash. You see, I already own this perfume (because my darling Tashy gave it to me for Chrissie, good girl!) but now she wants it. We just love, love, love it. It is such a fresh, gorgeous fragrance. It's really perfect for daytime. Nice and soft but delicious (I'd usually wear something with a bit more punch for nighttime). Next time your in DJ's (or Myer or whatever) try it out. It's delightful!
