Hey! I never do these kind of posts, but I do love reading them so I thought I would give it a go today. Thinking of things to go onto this wish list was no problem at all, and I could easily have included loads more products that I have my eye on!
I have run out of my current primer, and pretty much every blogger and their great uncle Bernie raves about this Laura Mercier one! It is no cheapie at £28, so this probably will remain on the wish list for a long time! The latest blusher offering from Benefit is Rockateur and it has soft rose gold tones, which sounds amazing so I may well end up caving in and getting my hands on this little beaut. The Essie polish in ‘A List’ is a lovely deep red and screams autumn to me. I really cannot wait to start wearing all my favourite dark colours again, deep reds and blacks are my favourites and luckily for me they always seem to be key for Autumn/winter trends. Although to be honest I would wear them even if they weren’t, who wants to be a slave to fashion if you can’t wear what you really want to?! Moving on, my favourite type of make up to shop for is foundation. I really love finding new ones, and I generally go for medium to full coverage ones because I just prefer that finish on me. This summer I did start using some lighter ones and even a tinted moisturiser, but it just doesn’t do it for me – I need my coverage! So as my true love Estee Lauder Double Wear comes to its end (sob), I am on the hunt for something different. One thing that I always struggle with is finding a good foundation that has a light enough shade for my skin, nearly all the ones I come across are either too dark or have yellow undertones rather than neutral/pink. So after much searching, it would appear that Illamasqua is the one for me. It has a great range of shades, starting from white! So I have chosen the one up from white which is shade 02, and after payday(this friday, FINALLY!) I think that this will be my first purchase. The Estee Lauder eye shadow duo ‘Raisins’ has been rather hyped on the bloggersphere too lately, and this is definitely a wish item rather than something I will actually buy anytime soon because I just cannot justify paying £23 for it! However it does look really lovely, and I’ve been trying to emulate similar looks with colours from my Naked2 palette. Lastly is the Topshop lipstick in ‘Trigger’, another gorgeous red colour!
