Wish List: Spending Ban Edition

My spending ban is almost over now (April 1st, I can shop again!!), and I promised I'd share updates and haven't. I'm actually pretty pleased with how I've got on - I caved and bought a sausage sandwich on the way to Uni one day last week, and I did buy Marie Claire for the free Neal's Yard hand cream. In my defence on that one, I resisted buying it on the 28th February because I'd convinced myself it was March 1st, so I could have had it legitimately and missed out because I'm a fool! Oh, and there were the three nail stamping kits I bought in Poundland after seeing Terri post about them... Otherwise, I've been good, and resisted buying a fair few bits and pieces. My proudest moment was definitely going to Superdrug for an exfoliator and buying only the exfoliator! Here are a few of the things I've been lusting after! First up, beauty products:

1. Tonymoly Egg Pore 3 Set, around £18. I can't remember where I first came across this, but having Googled around and read a few reviews, it sounds perfect for clearing out and shrinking the massive, congested pores around my nose and giving a smooth base for makeup. Not that I need any more primers...
2. Sleek Blush in 'Mirrored Pink', £4.49. I spotted this on Amy's blog and it's a beautiful shade. I need more blushers like I need a hole in the head, but this is just so gorgeous! Check out Amy's swatches and you'll see what I mean, it's beautiful.
3. Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette, £20. I don't actually own a bronzer, but I really don't need any more blushers or highlighters. Nonetheless, this is a beautiful palette and I love the idea of having all three products in one go; perfect for travelling!
4. L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Top Coat Confetti, £4.99. I've seen this on so many blogs and I love the effect it gives! I have so many glittery top coats, but this is a little bit different since it's matte. Diamond Lurex has also caught my eye, so I expect a couple of these will be making their way home with me at some point...

1. New Look Blue Animal Print Jacquard Skater Dress, £29.99. I have plenty of dresses, but I love the print of this and can't wait for Spring to finally get its act together so I can wear pretty dresses and even, maybe, God forbid, bare legs!
2. Topshop Branch Floral Tea Dress, £46. I think this is over-priced for what it is, as Topshop's items often are, but it is really pretty and I do love me a good tea dress. Green is one of my favourite colours to wear and I'd love to invest in this for the summer!
What have you been lusting after lately?
