My name is Isobel and I'm a shopaholic

Yes, it's true. And the fact I'm a poor college student doesn't help my situation in the slightest, so to keep my longing for all things materialistic and beauty related at bay, I've decided to make a list of the items I currently want to buy.

This might give you some ideas and inspirations for things you want, and if you're a shopaholic trying not to spend money like me..well..I'm sorry for tempting you. *Hashtag first world problems*

1. Bobbi Brown Face Blender Brush - Thanks to YouTuber Tanya Burr mentioning this brush in her video, I now have to try it. You can find the video HERE.

2. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in "Creme cup" - Cremesheen lipsticks by MAC are my favourite and this shade is a beautiful light pink, perfect for a natural everyday look or to accompany bold eye makeup.

3. Elizabeth Arden Fragrance in "Mediterranean" - I remember having a sample of this yonks ago and absolutely fricken loving it so I've decided it's about time I go back and repurchase in a larger bottle...when I have the money of course. Sad face.

4. Doc Martin Shoes in Black - I think these shoes are a fashion staple as they can pretty much be teamed with any casual outfit, are comfy and look really cool.

5. Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara - I don't own a bottom lash mascara and I think it's about time I did as I'm constantly having the struggle of trying to make my bottom lashes not too heavy looking and getting rid of any bits that have smudged below my eyes. I've heard good things about this one.

6. Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream- This cream claims to do a lot of great things and it's been raved about constantly so clearly I need one for myself...

7. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in "Peach Blossom" - Again, I love MAC cremesheen lipsticks and this is a beautiful peachy, pink colour. Would be a gorgeous everyday wear.

8. NARS Blush in "Orgasm" - Such a cult favourite and I'm a little ashamed I'm so far behind on the band wagon. I'm on the hunt for a new, natural looking blush and this seems to fit the bill a little shimmer never hurt anybody.

9. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation - This foundation, although very much on the pricey side, has been talked up about massively and would be great for special occasions. It's got such a gorgeous texture and finish from the pictures that I've seen.

10. OPI Brazil Minis Collection - I saw this the other day in the chemist and I now absolutely have to have it. I've been collecting OPI for some time now and to say I have an obsession is an understatement. I love the minis as you can buy more for less and I highly doubt I'll ever get through one of those massive bottles. The colours in this collection are very summery, exotic and predominately opaque. The shade that stands out most for me is "AmazON...AmazOFF"; a deep jungle green colour.

11. Lorac Pro Palette - Once again, this is such a cult favourite that I feel as though my makeup collection isn't complete without it...but then again, will it ever be complete? Probably not.

12. St Tropez Classic Tanning Mouse - I fake tan a lot of the time and from reviews, this seems to be one of the best. A lot of professional salons use St Tropez, as do a lot of my friends and the results look flawless.

13. Clarins Lip Balm Crayon in "Pink Me" - This seems to me like such a staple lip product and one that I would wear a lot. Not only is it a gorgeous, sheer pink colour but it's also moisturising on the lips and the fact that Clarins have now spiced things up a bit from the regular crayon lipsticks, intrigues me.

14. Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base - My current MAC eye primer isn't satisfying me (for reasons I may explain in a review later on) and so I thought I'd give this one ago.

So that's my very long list of things I really want to buy, I hope you enjoyed it. It's relieved me a little of my desire to go and spend more money!!

Have you tried any of these products/items? What things are you hanging out to buy?
