oh look, another wishlist

Lately I've been lusting after far too many beauty related products than can be considered healthy. And for some reason, putting them all in a collage and sharing them with the internet seems like a good idea.

1. I've stopped wearing foundation recently, and the sole cause of it is that every single one I own isn't very forgiving on my dry patches, so I've been going without and hoping that no-one decides to look at my face too closely. I've been reading up on good foundations for dry skin and the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum ticks all the boxes. It's also far more affordable than splashing out on some high end foundation - £30 for a small bottle of skin-coloured liquid is a bit over the top.

2. This has to be most beautiful light blue nail polish I've ever seen, but the frustrating thing is that it's not available anywhere that ships to the UK. It's name is Simply Aqua and it's from Lancome's recently released SS13 collection, so I guess I'm just going to have to play the waiting game until the collection lands in Britain.

3. We've all heard of the little tubes of goodness that are the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters, and a few new shades have been released this year and I want them - more specifically the shade Wild Watermelon. Go Google some swatches and try to tell me that I don't need it.

4. I have heard far too many rave reviews of the Nars Creamy Concealer to not buy it. It may just be the miracle my undereye circles have been waiting for, as although I've lusted after the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer for eons, I'm slightly apprehensive about using a cream concealer under my eyes as I'm so used to using a liquid one.

5. Over the past week I've been searching online for dungarees like nobody's business, and I think I've found the perfect pair. They're cheaper than something from the likes of Topshop and I'm in love with the details - everything from the three buttons on the side and little rip to the crossover back and double pocket on the front.

6. So many people love the NUXE Lip Balm that I'm desperate to give it a go (also EssieButton can convince me to buy anything) and I'm making an effort to stop using Carmex, I think my lips have got addicted to it and as a result if I stop applying it my lips get withdrawal symptoms and turn into a horrible cracked mess. Plus I will always welcome a new lip balm into my stash with open arms.

7. And last of all, I'm attempting to resist Fragrance Direct's £4 OPI nail polishes. I need a new nail polish like I need a hole in the head but I'll be damned if I ever stop buying them. The shades I'm eyeing up are Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? and I Have A Herring Problem, and I'm amazed that I've managed to narrow it down to two as there are so. many. colours.

What are you currently coveting?

  2. The light blue nail polish looks quite similar to the one by Barry M, think it's called Blue Moon?

  4. I love the dungarees, I think they have a similar pair in Primark too :) x

  5. I have the Bourjois healthy mix foundation! It's definitely worth picking up :) x

  6. So many people are raving about the Revlon Lip Butters, I need one! I would love some dungarees too. I have a pink dress but want a denim one now too. :) x

  7. I have the healthy mix foundation and I love it best drugstore foundation! :) x
