Paula Dorf Brushes
I could probably be more specific as it was actually a dome shaped brush that I can't seem to find on the Paula Dorf website. These came up on a sale on a website like BrandAlley or Secret Sales. The prices were great but I'd not come across them before and I was also put off by the postage costs. No sooner had the sale finished than Lisa Eldridge posted this video about her favourite brushes. I've never seen Paula Dorf come up on a sale since and I regret my decision not to take a punt. Especially whenever I
Sonia Kashuk Brushes
More brushes! When the Sonia Kashuk brushes first appeared in SpaceNK, I was shocked by the premium price tag. As much as I wanted to try them, I couldn't bring myself to pay such a big mark up. When they all appeared on sale at the end of 2009, I filled my basket then had a moments hesitation. Again, largely because of the high postage costs. For me it doesn't feel like a saving if I get stung paying more for the postage than the cost of an item! I should have taken my chance whilst I had it as I believe these are no longer available in the UK.
Chantecaille Tigers in the Wild Palette
This mention probably won't surprise you. I went on about how much I wanted to get this but I just couldn't get over the price. At over £70 these are certainly not cheap items. Having managed to buy the Sea Turtles palette in a blog sale, I realised how much I would have enjoyed the colours in the Tigers palette. I will keep my eyes open in the vain hope that someone will want to part with theirs but I can't see me being lucky twice over. Ah well, at least I have plenty of other beautiful palettes to play with.

By now I'm sure you've heard that Le Metier de Beaute have 'left the building'. I've heard many great things about this blusher from bloggers that I really trust. You can find swatches of it on The Non-Blonde and on Dempeaux's blog both of whom very kindly let me borrow these photos.
When Selfridges had their online sale earlier in the year, I got very excited only to discover that Le Metier had disappeared from the website. Sadly, I didn't make it to the counter before they left the store last month. I really do wish I had picked it up back when I'd had the chance. I'm keeping everything crossed that Le Metier will make a comeback in the UK. When they do, this will be at the top of my list of things to buy!
My current nagging is over the Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Colour lipsticks. I looked, I swatched, I loved but decided I had too many similar lipsticks (because of course this normally makes a difference how?). Fortunately, I don't think these will be disappearing anytime soon so a purchase is necessary to make sure this doesn't join my list of regrets.
I can't imagine I'm alone in doing this, which things have you let slip through the net and regretted? What's always on your blog sale watch list?
