My Birthday Wish List

Hurraaaah!  My birthday is coming up on the 8th of February and I thought I would do a blog post on some of the things I am currently lusting after.  A couple of friends and family members have asked me to do a wish list blog post, so here is my list in all its glory!

All the products are available in South Africa at the moment (yes, even the GlamGlow mud mask is available in South Africa), but some might only be available online.

22.  dr. brandt Flexitone BB Cream (selected Foschini & Stuttafords stores)

23.  Vacu Vin Popsome Cake Decorating Set (Superbalist & selected kitchenware stores)

I was going to put the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette on the list as well, but when I saw Rubybox was selling it last week, I immediately bought it as a birthday prezzie for myself.  I just couldn’t run the risk of it getting sold out before someone has the chance to buy it for me (plus you have to be a Ruby Royal to purchase it).

Have a fabulous week, beauties!

    O I actually have 2 things on your list the Korres Lip butter and Ren Mask (and Naked 3 palette from Rubybox). All of your wish list items are too die for! Hope you get everything!

    • Luzanne

      Ooooh! Do you like the Korres Lip Butter? I know some people find it a bit boring. but I swatched it in the store the other day and I really loved it!

      I just received my Naked 3 palette yesterday and I am SO excited to start playing with it! I have to take photos for a review first, though, so I haven’t been able to use it as yet…

        I love the Korres Lip Butter! I think it is my second favourite, first is the Lush Honey Trap.

        • Luzanne

          In that case I really hope someone gets it for me as a birthday gift, otherwise I’m getting it for myself! 🙂

          I’ve actually never tried LUSH’s lip balms…weird hey (since I’m so LUSH-obsessed)? Will definitely pick up a pot next time I’m in Cape Town.

          Thank you for commenting, Anye! 😀
