If I Had a Million Dollars….

I’d buy La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye & Lip Perfection a Porter and Chantecaille Wild Horses Eyeshadow Palette!

I don’t have a million dollars but these very tempting and expensive offerings are singing from my online cart this morning.

Hear that? It’s the sound of my debit card telling me in a very cultured and mature voice to NOT purchase either of these two products because 1. They are damn pricey and 2. I have more makeup and beauty than I know what to do with.

That doesn’t mean I don’t want both.

Chantecaille Wild Horses Eyeshadow Palette $83
Chantecaille stunning new palette combines rich autumn shades in a whispery midnight black shimmer, soft creamy beige, chestnut golden brown, and a sunset pink for eyes. But let’s face it, the color combo isn’t what gets us excited, it’s the wild horses imprint on each eyeshadow right? If the horses were unicorns, well, they wouldn’t be able to tear me away from purchasing this palette. Ya know, I like to relive my Lisa Frank youth!

La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye & Lip Perfection $150
This lifting eye cream gel and protective lip balm is well beyond my purse strings but the fact it instantly erases the signs of fatigue, lines, wrinkles, and dark circles and oh yeah hydrate lips and walks the dog has me all a flutter! Do want!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    If I had a million dollars, I’d buy a Tesla Model S.

    I like the Target idea. I think I’d hole up my office. It’s got a fully stocked cafeteria, a nurses station, backup generators galore and all kinds of security systems with cameras and badge-in access doors everywhere.

    • the Muse

      mmm make mine maroon Chynna! šŸ˜€ um hi I’m your new best friend can I stay at your place during zombie time? k, be right over! I’ll bring chips (and dips)

  • Caroline

    Oh my gosh that Wild Horses palette is beautiful!! Too bad it only contains four eyeshadows; even my makeup-crazy self can’t justify the $83 price tag for a measly four shadows! LOL

    And if I had a million dollars, I’d buy every product in the La Mer line! Oh, and I would definitely hole up at Super Target during the zombie apocalypse. šŸ˜‰

  • K.B.

    If I had a million dollars, I’d buy Bruno Mars.

    Unless he won’t come willingly, in which case I’ll kidnap him and still have my million dollars to blow at Sephora and Barnes & Noble. And a trip to NYC. HOLLA!

    • K.B.

      And re: zombies – (sticks fingers in ears) LA LA LA! I CAN’T HEAR YOU! I (admittedly foolishly) freak the f out any time someone mentions zombies or aliens. I can’t even watch commercials that mention them.

    UD eyeshadow and eyeliner vaults! Nars Multiple in Riviera. Guerlain, Dior, YSL, Buxom, Shiseido, Nars, Anna Sui lippies in every color I want! Hourglass ambient lighting powder. And some miracle eye cream not just or fine lines but horrid perm dark under eye circles from hayfever! Oh and a Prada handbag, Juicy puffer coat, Jimmy Choos, and another kickass Kathy Van Zealand handbag! Just for starters šŸ˜‰
    I’m in Texas so I’m sure our paranoid texan militia has some zombie apocalypse base already setup somewhere…

        Lololol! Already been daydreaming this morn when ur tweet popped up šŸ˜‰ I’d pick target too but mine is a teeny target not worth it. I’ll go with Dick’s Sporing goods! Two story, plenty of make-shift weaponry. just need some food goods, a Chris Hemsworth and maybe the cast of Dr Who

        • the Muse

          no food mel…you need food! dick’s would be good but food is essential šŸ˜€ lol love the cast of Doctor WHo yes please šŸ˜€

    If I had a million dollars I’d go on vacations to several places since I never get away. I may also buy a Chanel bag and some La Mer cream.

    Super Target would be a good Zombie plague hide-out!

    Oh, and yes, if this palette was unicorns I’d like it more. I loved Lisa Frank stuff when I was a kid.

  • Malin

    If I had a million dollars I’d buy a really swanky dressage horse, haha!

    I have a La Prairie cream and my God, it’s like the best thing that ever happened to my skin, it’s a good thing it lasts me a while bc replacing it makes my bank account weep. This blog is not good for my finances!!

  • Alanna

    If i had a million dollars I’d buy a little Maine coast cabin and I’d invest it so I didn’t have to work…haha. Oh and I’d upgrade my PC into a monster game machine and NEVER hold back on steam sales! I’d like to visit a traditional japanese hot spring too with a trip to Tokyo for beauty and clothes shopping.
    For a zombie invasion, I’d team up with my internet friends and build a self sufficient walled in compound! I’d like to do that even WITHOUT zombies… the woes of having great friends who are too far away to visit.

    • the Muse

      can I come? šŸ˜€ LOL amen sista good plan on both the pc, steam sales, and cabin!

      • Alanna

        Hehe yes you’ll have to review the makeup we have to make ourselves out of roots and berries. Maybe some asian beauty enthusiast survivors will make skincare with zombie entrails lol

  • Bree

    As a horse lover and owner that wild horses palette is amazing! Wayyy out of my price range though. Somebody please create a cheaper alternative.

  • Cindy Ramirez

    If I had a million dollars I’d buy Clive Owen (Or I’ll settle for his 20 year younger clone Matthew Lewis).

    And if a zombie outbreak happened I’d probably hole up at one of the six wal-marts in my town. ;]

  • Karina

    If I Had a Million Dollars Iā€™d buy a Tom Ford quad T___T or all of them. They are sooo pretty.

  • Stacie

    If I had a million dollars I would buy more makeup, books, movies and video games than any one person should ever own. Boring but also pay off student loans, buy a car and a house. If a zombie apocalypse broke out I would head to a prison or hospital-both have food, medicine, generators and security. I would need to hit up a store on the way to get some things like books, extra weapons, and random stuff so I wouldn’t get bored.

  • Nantajit

    If I had a million dollars, I would buy Sephora’s stocks so that way when I shop I wouldn’t feel much guilty!!!! LOL šŸ˜‰ And If the zombie plague hit tomorrow Iā€™d hole up at Target too!!!! šŸ™‚

  • Miho Mallory

    You should add reason #3 to buy the wild horses palette: a portion of the proceeds for each palette bought will be donate to Humane Society of the United States to help save wild horses!! It’s expensive and I can’t afford it but I feel like I HAVE to buy it. Makeup that not only doesn’t test on animals but actually HELPS them? Sign me up. ;w; My wallet will feel this one.. x’D
