Greetings from my imaginary world of awesome, fellow rogues!
I’ve been seeing so many epic new beauty artefacts and loot recently, that I think it’s time for another wishlist! A rogue’s got to get it off her chest at some point, you know? This time it’s split into three areas, and I should mention right now that this isn’t technically an exhaustive list! I’m thinking of doing some additional wishlists for geek stuff and ballet, so if you’re keen to see those as well, let me know. 🙂
Without further ado, these are the shinies…

Starting with Charlotte Tilbury…
Obviously, as a famously lipstick-addicted rogue, I’d rather like all of the two lipstick lines that Charlotte Tilbury has designed (barring a couple of too-nudes). However, for the purposes of this post, I have limited myself to two pretty pinks and two vampy purples! The pinks were brought to my attention particularly by the irrepressible Stacey and the illustrious Jaa, as well as (naturally) Christine of Temptalia. Christine is also responsible for my current hyperventilation over the The Rebel eyeshadow quad – I don’t really own many greens, especially ones that aren’t effectively just teal or turquoise, and the colour mix in this one just stole my heart. The Glamour Muse palette is, well, it’s *purple* people. Honestly! 😉
I have kind of a soft spot for the beautiful sculpt/highlight palette that Charlotte also has in the range, but despite the gentle colour of the bronzer and the stunning packaging, if I’m brutally honest with myself I probably won’t actually use it. I know this is a *wish*list, and that it’s totally OK just to want something because it’s pretty, but there’s a part of me that wants to keep it to things I know I would actually put on. … anyway! Moving swiftly onward… 😀
We’re starting to see the avalanche of Holiday 2014 sets and specials emerge (well, sets and specials exclusively for the US, mostly, but a rogue can dream!), and a few have caught my treasure-keen eye! Given my recent discovery of a Holy Grail product in Laura Mercier’s Amethyst Caviar Stick, the idea of trying out a bunch more of the shades seems rather appealing! Accordingly, the LM Caviar Stick set from Nordstrom is on my little list. From the same page on Nordstrom comes the Butter London LE Steampunk collection. As both a geek and a lover of historical things, Steampunk is RIGHT UP MY VICTORIAN ALLEY. For those not familiar with it, it’s kind of Victoriana meets Jules Verne style science fiction meets magic and steam power and clockwork. Did that make sense? Probably not. Nevertheless, it’s awesome, and I want that nail set! 😀 Thirdly, as a lover of brightly coloured eyeliners and Marc Jacobs lipsticks, I feel that the MJ Highliner set for Holiday 2014 is right up my alley – I’d love to try his eyeliners, and the shade selection is nice!
My wishlist was going to end with the Holiday sets, actually, but as I was drafting the post, an email from Nyx popped into my inbox, informing me that they had just released a set of unconvnentionally colored metallic lipsticks, presumably to capitalise on the success of their recent pastel Macaron Lippie range. Because this is so new, I haven’t seen a single real review or swatch, so I have no idea if these are *really* desirable or not, but I do know that I’m 100% behind anyone releasing more blue and purple lipsticks into the world! I’d go for pretty much all of them, but Betrayal, Immortal, Risque, Envy and Sinful are topping the list (no surprises there, right?) ;-).
So! That was my little wishlist for October (although it kind of covers September as well, really, since we’ve only just entered October).
Does anything catch your eye on that list? Have you tried some of the things there? What are your thoughts on steampunk? How do you feel about metallic khaki lipsticks? 😀
Until next time, fellow rogues, don’t forget to check for loot as well as traps!
