The 100 Day Challenge - Update # 7

27 Jul 2012

I am now 56 days in. That means I've passed the half way mark! Hurrah! I can't believe how quickly the past 8 weeks have gone if I'm honest. It doesn't seem like it's been 8 weeks since I went shopping or did a haul. And I haven't lost the plot, either. How has this been so easy?? Lets see what's on this weeks wishlist!

MAC Lasting Sensation Lip Pencil / Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel

GHDs / Urban Decay Smoked Palette

Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Setting Spray / NEOM Invigorate Candle

50 Shades of Grey / NARS Foreplay Palette

I think there is quite a variety in this week's wishlist! So let me explain why each of these has managed to make it on to my 100 Day Challenge wishlist! I wear red lipstick quite often, and usually when it's not red I'm wearing, it's a pink. And these are two colours you should always wear a lip pencil with. But, I don't own any lip pencils. I have seen some gorgeous swatches and know that MAC is a popular brand for lip products in general, I personally adore their lipsticks. So I would quite like to try their lip liners, but this said MUA have just advertised their new line of lip liners which look just as good! The Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel is another product I've seen some rave reviews of and I would love to give it a try. I especially love their limited edition packaging! The GHDs are something I have already said in the post explaining why I want to do the challenge, that I would like to treat myself to after the challenge. I've had mine for 6 years and they have lasted me well but the past week or so I have realised even more just how much my pair is ready for retirement. The Urban Decay Smoked Palette isn't due to hit UK stores until July 30th and I would love to get it as I love smokey eyes and the shades seem so gorgeous and versatile! The Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Setting Spray appeals to me because it is their setting spray is designed specially for oily skin - which is my skin type. The NEOM candles are much talked about in the blogosphere and I'm most intrigued by their Invigorate candle! I already have 50 Shades of Grey, which I am currently reading, but I hate reading one book of a trilogy and not having the others to hand to move on to, so I really want the 2nd and 3rd books in the trilogy. The NARS Foreplay palette just looks stunning and I know from owning Laguna that their products are worth the money! And finally, Paris. No, I don't want the Eiffel Tower! But I really want to go to Paris shopping! So that's quite a variety this week!

Spending wise I have again (I genuinely don't know how I'm managing it) stuck to all of my rules within the challenge. I did go into Derby yesterday with my friend Stacie, to get my birthday present from my boyfriend which was a new tattoo. We did do some browsing in the shops in Westfield but I didn't buy anything! I did manage to pick up a sample of the YSL Touche Eclat foundation though and managed to swap my five empty Lush pots for a new fresh face mask! So that has made this week easier! 

Do you have any of the products on my wish list? Are they worthy of their place on my wish list? What products are you lusting after?
