October wish list: what you need most
Each month I do the same thing. Take one look over my bulging make-up bag and swear that my beauty buying days are over. I’m a beauty editor after all, I have everything I could possibly need, right?
Wrong. Very wrong. I know this because each month I’m tempted beyond belief by shiny new beauty buys that seem even better than their previous month's predecessors. Not to buy them would be missing out immensely, especially when there’s such an incredible group of delightful and innovative options to choose from. Check out what you need to put on your wish list…
