Beauty-talk..?

Remember how about this time last year I was crazy to get Clinique's Chubby Stick Christmas set? Yeaaah, funny how I am not so inclined on Clinique nowadays. After trying a few of their products, I'm starting to feel like their products seriously came off of a clinic! Like seriously, have you ever tried smelling the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion? It seriously smells like some sort of an antibiotic!

Anyway, Clinique didn't come out with anything that I liked this holiday season. I have way too many of those crayon lippies these days anyway; from Revlon, Bourjois and Cliniques too! Now, that's the thing.. had Clinique came out with a set of the Chubby Stick Intense, I'd probably still be all over it! But they didn't! What they had was this Chubby Stick duo that was simply packaged differently;

Cute, but pretty much has no use to me.
Oh, what I've discovered this year; Clinique products are pretty meh -- apart from the Chubby Stick and Chubby Stick Intense. Skincare wise, I don't feel any different than using Simple products.

This year I've been pretty all over Bourjois and NARS. Having first bought them in Hong Kong and Bangkok respectively. It's almost for these perks that I'm thankful for landing the job that I have now. Somehow I just didn't mind the hassle to get them even if that means having to explore the town all by myself.

I have my eyes (and heart) set on two of the lip holiday sets by NARS, first is the Promiscuous Lip Pencil Coffret that comes in a cute little pouch;

(Ah yes, I've been crazy about crayon lippies ever since their existence so it seems..)
And second is the Fling Lip Set that has the lipsticks and lip pencils! (Comes in a red, lip-shaped case.)

I think they're both gorgeous and perfect for someone who's just starting out to try NARS' products.
Would it be too crazy if I get both? HAHAHHAHHA!! Anyway, from reading the local beauty-blogs, I believe the Guy Bordin holiday sets aren't available (yet?) at the Pavilion store -- which I haven't had the chance to visit!
Perhaps after payday.. teehee!
I'd like to go to Sephora too!

Seriously, I am making a shopping list in my mind right now. I really hope I don't over spend this time around! ..although December usually means Birthday Shopping! (since there are a bunch of birthdays to "celebrate", including mine -- which is why I placed the inverted commas there.. and I don't celebrate Christmas.)
Such a perfect perfect excuse to shop, right?
