Wish list: new beauty releases

I’ve always kept a running wish list of what what I might want to get – this goes for everything (books, gifts for friends and family, etc.), but the longest wish list I’ve got by far is the one for beauty products.  I’ll edit that list every now and then so I don’t forget – add the new Chanel blush for spring 2012, take off the Holiday 2011 highlighter release because it got bad reviews, and so on.  Additions usually get added after reading some blog post or watching a Youtube beauty video – funny how that happens!

In any case, Women’s Wear Daily previewed a list of new products that are being released now into Spring 2012.  We’ve included the makeup and skincare ones below.  Are there any you would add to your wish list?
