Today, I wanted to do a post where I didn’t have to think too much, but this will still be somewhat lengthy because Hello, it’s a list and not of press stuff I received or purchases either. This is pretty much the “One can dream…” point and pick party of items that appeal to me and am happy to recommend them for people with similar taste. We’ve trimmed down on the extravagance and labor that goes into Christmas parties this year or cut out our company Christmas parties altogether in respect of Storm Haiyan’s victims. Most of us are aware and we’ve gladly done our share to help. That also means more people can focus more on gift giving. Whenever I make this wishlist annually please know that I don’t shamelessly email it to family and friends okay?! These are mostly available locally (don’t be mad if I throw in a few aspirational gifts) and I’ll do the fair mix of high and low for you. Mmm, I’ll make this a list of 5 beauty and 5 nearly non-beauty buys for the sake of variety…I’ll even throw in one or two things you can eat. Let us begin. For fun, I’ll alternate the beauty and non-beauty bits. This post is going to turn into fruitcake.
1.) INGLOT Single Eyeshadow– I’ve got the palettes you place them in, so surprise me with any single eyeshadow shade from a huge array of colors to choose from at their store. They come dinky and boxed…the size of candy. (Php375 from the INGLOT boutique at Glorietta 5)
2.) Canon EOS 700D Entry level DSLR – From tiny gift to big gift we go, the reason why I’ve got my eyes set on this is I’ve never owned a DSLR ever and this is a lower level camera than the 60D, also costs less than that 100D one AND it’s a newer release than the 600D. The 600D was the entry level DSLR of 2-3 years ago, this is the next step up. I like that unlike the 650D it has a varicam angle flip screen which is a blogger’s blessing if you want to check what the scene looks like while shooting yourself. I’m also very much in need of a DSLR for decent true to life before and after photos of my makeup clients.
3.) Bloom Eye Brow Duo (Brow Gel & Pencil) – Now, I’m not sure if Beauty Bar stocks all of Bloom’s latest products (or if they still stock Bloom at all, shame on me, I’ll confirm), but this is what’s on the Bloom website. My cousin’s wife, Sam, loves their automatic brow pencils and while I’m not sure that this is the same one, this is what got me interested from the site, one end is a brow gel, the other is a brow definer. Just know that Sam and I know brows and according to her Bloom’s brow stuff is better than good. READ MORE to see all 10 on my wishlist…click “more”.
