Spring Beauty Wishlist

6. Too Faced Natural Face Palette

Judging from last week's weather, we're finally in the midst of spring. The blossoms are blooming, birds are singing, and my spring beauty wishlist is growing by the day. I don't know what it is about this time of year, but the change of seasons always inspires me to upgrade my beauty routine, switch up my makeup bag and treat myself to some new beauty bits. 

That being the case, I thought I'd put together a little wishlist post of the things I'm currently lusting after beauty-wise. Some of the things I've included are new out, others lend themselves to the season of spring and some are perfect for prepping for the best season of all: summer (most notably Panasonic's IPL Hair Removal tool - it's officially legs out weather!) 

First up, the product everyone is talking about at the moment: Isle of Paradise's Tanning Drops. As a tanning addict myself, I'm desperate to try these as I'm hoping they will solve my recurring pale-face-bronzed-body dilemma. You mix them with your night-time moisturiser and in the morning wake up with a gorgeous golden glow. They come in three different shades and if I bite the bullet and get myself a bottle I'll whack a review up asap. 

Next up - quite possibly my favourite thing about this time of year: Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess collection is back. Well, it's almost back. I've linked to a waiting list so you can be the first to hear when the collection drops. I remember being gifted Estee Lauder's Heatwave highlighter way back when and it disappeared from the Bronze Goddess collection a few years ago, only to reappear in made-over packaging not so long ago. I missed out on this last year (it sells out straight away, trust me!) and refuse to let that happen this year.

I spied this cute Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Matte Lipstick Set recently and feel like it's the perfect gift for spring birthdays (what is it about spring and birthdays? I honestly have so many people to buy for over the next few weeks!), plus I really want to try ABH's lipsticks. 

Another great thing about this time of year is that it's time to bring out the bronzer and get that glow on. Too Faced have the cutest bronzer I've ever seen in the form of their Unicorn Tears Bronzer - I need it in my life! Speaking of golden glows, Benefit recently released Gold Rush, their latest box o' powder that is said to give the most gorgeous peachy rose gold flush. I'm desperate to try this out! Speaking of gorgeous flushes, I just had to mention this new palette from Too Faced, part of their Natural collection. It features a selection of stunning highlighters, bronzers and blushes: everything you need for a pretty spring glow. 

Of course, as we embrace spring and prepare for summer, it's all hands on deck in the shaving department. Whilst I love the warmer months, I've got to say that shaving my legs is one thing I could really do without. It's so damn time-consuming! So, I thought it would be pretty apt to include Panasonic's at-home IPL Hair Removal gizmo because it basically sounds like what I've waited for all my adult life. Basically, it zaps your hair away and the more you use it, the less hair you get and the smoother you become. It definitely beats shaving every other day when legs out weather rolls around!

Finally, I couldn't resist putting this in because I am so intrigued/irrationally excited about this product. GlamGlow has released a trio of MY LITTLE PONY face masks. With actual real life GLITTER in. Yeah, you read that right. The selection of GravityMud masks is exclusive to ASOS and comes in three different colours to lift and firm the skin. Who sad all mud masks had to be an ugly grey/green colour?!
