Don't you just love 'em? I sure do. And now, inspired by Grayburn's post Current Lemmings, I'll show you mine. Thanks Grayburn for the prompt!
"My current list of lemmings consist of a few items that I think will be perfect for the Summer. What about you? What are your current lemmings?" /Grayburn/
1.) Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara in Jet Brown (02)
Judging by the customer reviews on MUA this is exactly what I need and the mascara I've been looking for all my life. Unfortunately, here in Hungary it costs twice as much as in western parts of Europe or in the US which is why I'm waiting for it appear again on Strawberrynet. You see, I saw it about a months ago, but I didn't have the money to buy it, and by the time I got paid, it was gone. (And there was weeping and gnashing of teeth...)
What I want from a mascara:
- it should be brown (=natural), as I have medium brown hair and eyebrows so black mascara usually just looks fake on me.
- it should make my lashes, well... "naturally glossy"
- I don't want it to lengthen at all: my lashes are long enough on their own, just not very visible
- can add volume, but it's not compulsory either
- shouldn't be waterproof
Naturally Glossy is all that, it seems, and is more like a lash tint than a Super-Duper Extra Lengtht + Extra Volume + Extra Everything Jet Black miracle product.
Perfect! Just what the doctor ordered. :)
Strawberrynet has it actually, but I want to order it together with the other fluffy lemming up above, so it'll have to wait.
3.) Comptoir Sud Pacifique Amour de Cacao EdT
I can't help it: I have a thing for gourmand scents, and strawberry is offering it for a much lower price than what its only retailer charges for it here in Hungary.
I just have a nack for using the most inappropriate scents: a warm, chocolaty and undeniably gourmand scent in the middle of summer. Last summer it was vanilla scented shower gel and lotion in 42 Celsius degrees, and now this...
I loved their original "Potion lotion" so now that I have some money it's obvious which cosmetic store in Budapest I'll be hitting next.
The lotion smelled like bright red carnations, and it was one of the first products I bought from LUSH. I still remember that afternoon when I came home with my purchases, sat down on my bed and ooohed and aaahed over each and every one of them. Potion was the absolute favorite: I had never smelled anything like it before, and couldn't even imagine that carnation scented products could even exist, so it was a really nice surprise.
Fever (I own the massage bar), on the other hand, had to slowly grow on me. The first time I smelled it in the store I was like "Eww, that's sooo strange and ewww, I so wouldn't buy that..." The next time I went there something drew me to the stuff and made me smell it again, after which I was a bit more open to it, and although left the store with a sack full of goodies, my mind kept coming back to it and I said to myself: "I really should buy it next time". And I did.
An interesting tidbit for you: once Weleda Wildrose Body Oil's strong initial smell settles down, it becomes a dead ringer for LUSH's Fever, at least my nose informs me so every time I have that oil on me.
5.) A Moleskine notebook (plain or chequered)
I know there's a bit of a hype surrounding this brand but I really want to try it at least once. It looks really simple and stylish and some of its features are very appealing:
- Elastic enclosure
- Good quality paper
- Rounded corners
- Expandable inner pocket
- Pocket sized
- 192 pages
Do you happen to own one? How do you like it? Let me know? In fact, tell me if you have any of the above mentioned products and how they have worked out for you. :-)
