Beauty Wishlist #1

Wednesday, 1 May 2013

I'm currently lusting after SO many beauty products, so I thought I'd put together a little bit of a wishlist for your perusal. I've decided I might start doing more wishlist-type posts if they're something you guys like to see? Let me know!

1. Tigi Bed Head Sugar Dust, £7.22 - As I've ditched back-combing my hair, I've been on the lookout for quick-fix volumizing products that won't ensue any damage on my hair. I've been loving Lee Stafford's Root Boost mousse but I've also been looking into some of the volumizing dusting powders, and this one from Tigi in particular caught my eye. I've not heard much about it but I'm always taken in by Tigi products, and for £7.22 I don't think you can really grumble. Has anyone else tried this?

2. Nude MAC Lipsticks, £14.00 - MAC lipsticks are most definitely the best, when it comes to both quality and range of colours, and although I have quite a little collection on the go, I hardly have any of their nude shades. I know I say I'm a bright lippy girl at heart, but recently I've really been embracing nude lips, and in particular wearing my trusty MAC Please Me lippy to death. I really want to get my hands on some more nude lippies from MAC, so if you have any recommendations let me know!

3. Origins Oil-Free High Potency Night-A-Mins, £33.00 - I recently discovered that it's bad to wear moisturiser with SPF in at night as it blocks your pores - oopsy! I always just use my normal day moisturiser at night time and I definitely think this needs to change! I've been struggling to find a decent night cream that suits my oily skin, but when I saw this Oil-Free High Potency Night-A-Mins cream on the Origins website I thought it sounded perfect. After reading a few reviews it sounds like an amazing product, so I think I'm going to have to save some pennies so I can get this beauty. I think it might make the fact I wear £3 day cream a tad laughable though, but oh well! I definitely need to start looking after my skin more and I think this would be the perfect product to do so.

4. Nails Inc. Feathers in Edinburgh, £11.00 - As summer is winging its way here (I can't actually believe it's May - where has the time gone!?!) I've been getting pretty damn excited about the prospect of getting creative with my nails and brightening them up a bit, with nail art and other cool nail effects. I think this Feather-effect polish from Nails Inc. will be absolutely on the money for festivals and summer days, as it just screams summer boho vibes. I think it'd look fab over a bright pink polish - NEED!

5. NARS And God Created Woman Palette, £40.50 - Okay, so I know I'm a tad late to the party here, but I can't get over how stunning this NARS palette looks. I don't actually own a single NARS eyeshadow, yet I know they're bloody amazing, so I think I need to rectify this by getting myself a palette. It has some beautiful shimmery neutral shades in there, but at £40.50 I'm not sure I can justify getting it just yet!

6. Real Techniques Eye Starter Kit, £20.99 - I love my Real Techiques Stippling Brush so much, I'm a bit surprised I haven't bought any of the others just yet. I was whiling away the hours yesterday watching YouTube videos and it suddenly dawned on me that I don't really have that many eye brushes. I tend to use my one solitary eyeshadow brush from ELF, but I know to get a flawless look I need to invest in a variety of brushes. So, what better thing to buy than the Eye Starter Kit?!

7. Feerie Spring Blossom Perfume 50ml, £49.00 - I don't actually have many perfumes; I tend to buy one, use it until it runs out, then get another. I never really shake things up in the perfume department, but I'm starting to get a bit bored of wearing the same one everyday. I have my eye on SO many different perfumes, but I'm particularly intrigued by the Feerie perfumes by Van Cleef & Arpels. The Spring Blossom scent in particular caught my eye, and after having a quick spritz I think I need it in my life. Plus, who can resist that beautiful bottle?! Fairies + perfume = totally amazing.
