Amy’s Desires du Jour

By  July 17, 2009


1. Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes High-Precision Panoramic Mascara, $28

More than any other beauty product, I love mascara. I’m not the biggest fan of wearing falsies, but that’s definitely the look I go for—my lashes just can’t be long/full enough! I have a handful of faithful favorites, but I’m always on the lookout for something new and different to try out. This Givenchy mascara is just that—it has a unique ball-shaped brush that allows for the most precise application.

2. Michael Kors Bermuda Moisturizing Body Lotion, $28

I dream of jetting off to Bermuda for a luxurious and exotic getaway, but that trip is currently firmly rooted in my fantasy world. Lucky for me, I can get a little feel of the island life with Michael Kors’ new destination fragrance—Bermuda is captured with a blend of hibiscus, passion flower, and cedar wood. I’m coveting this enticing scent in its body lotion form so that I can smell great while helping my skin feel great, too.

3. GO SMILE AM & PM Whitening Protection Fluoride Toothpaste, $30

It’s one thing to have a set of pearly whites, but I also want mine to be as healthy as possible. This great day-and-night duo can maintain whiteness and keep my smile sparkling, but more importantly, the fluoride in it will prevent decay and strengthen the enamel of my teeth.

4. Cupcake Lip Balm 4 Pack, $10

These lip balms from Urban Outfitters come in precious mini-cupcake containers and are so adorable, I’ll feel like I’m indulging my sweet tooth—but without any guilt! They come in four delicious flavors: raspberry cream tart, cream tart, chocolate cream puff, and strawberry cream tart. Dessert, anyone?

5. Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Gondola, $23

Nail polish is a beauty product that even the most color-shy person can have fun experimenting with. I personally embrace colors with reckless abandon, but while I’d probably never try out mint green lipstick, I am currently on the hunt for some nail color in that shade. So it makes sense that I’m lusting after Chanel’s latest polish additions, and in particular for the beautiful, rich plum-wine color, Gondola.

6. Serpentine Shimmer Headband, $32

I don’t often do much to my hair, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good hair accessory when I see it! This beautiful headband is composed of sparkling gold beads and peach-colored glass ovals, and I think it’s almost reminiscent of a delicate tiara of the fairy princess variety. It’d be the perfect finishing touch for practically any outfit for those days when I feeling more regal than usual.

7. Silk Satin Fiore Clutch, $125

This gorgeous purse is perfectly summery and a beautifully eye-catching shade of yellow—which is already enough to make me want it. Add on that it’s made of a high quality silk satin from Europe, and that it has a magnetic flap, a pretty bouquet of flowers, and pockets inside… I’m sold!

8. Stella McCartney Frill Bikini, approximately $230

The nautical trend is one of my absolute favorites—it’s easy and classic, and the colors are always great. Stella McCartney seems to love the trend just as much, and one of my favorite nautical items from her designs in this adorable sailboat and seagull print swimsuit. The cut is unique, and the frills add the perfect girly touch!
