Beauty Wish List: Mascara

My beauty wish list is an ever expanding work in progress so instead of updating my wish list on my side bar, I thought I'd just start doing posts on my most coveted items .

I go through different beauty phases all the time where I'll just go blush crazy and buy a gajillion blushes or go lipstick crazy and buy a whole bunch of those. At the moment I've gone a wee bit mascara crazy and I'm trying to stop myself from buying too many at once because unlike blushes and lippies, these babies do not keep for long once opened.

I'm currently switching between Christian Dior Diorshow, Givenchy Phenomeneyes and Max Factor Lash Extension effect mascaras. I like all these mascaras but I just feel like a change so the ones that are on my 'I really, really want it' list are (in no particular order):

YSL Faux Cils Mascara

Majolica Majorca (a Shiseido brand only available in Asia) Lash Expander Mascara

YSL Singulier Mascara

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara

This last one is the Shiseido Mascara Base which I want as a replacement to my Lancome Oscillation Primer which just isn't doing it for me.

Being high end brands they are all quite pricey so I guess I'll have to show some self restraint but they just all look so pretty and seem like they give really good lashes so I don't even know where to start!


  1. Cool! The Majolica Majorca mascara brush looks interesting. You should've gotten someone who went to Asia recently to get it for you...hehe

  2. I have the shiseido mascara base (the new one tho) and it is AMAZING! It holds to the curl all day and it actually makes my lashes grow longer! It's true. My bottom lashes used to be nonexistent, for example, but now they are SO noticeable. :)

  3. Reese: You've sold me! The Shiseido base will be next on my to buy list. I've put off buying it because it's a base rather than an actual mascara but if you think its good then I'll give it a go. I went with the YSL Singulier first but it really hasn't lived up to the hype for me so hopefully the shiseido does. Thanks for commenting!
