• January lusting // February wish list •

January lusting // February shopping list

I thought I'd start a new series to let you all know the products I've been lusting over for the past month and what I'll be popping on my shopping list for the next month :) It's just kind of a fun way to show you the kind of products I'm into! I created this image using Polyvore and I would be really interested in seeing what you guys lust over beauty/fashion-wise, so if you decide to make monthly lust lists, please do leave the link in the comments box.

1. Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade
Currently £15 from Cultbeauty, click here to be directed to the site.
I'm a massive brows gal, so this product really excites me. It's been described as having a gel-mousse consistency which is really unusual and nothing like I currently own. It's waterproof, smudgeproof, and adheres to your eyebrow hairs making them look really natural but really defined. There's a waiting list for this product as it's not out instores/online yet - I'm very tempted to sign up to that list this weekend.

2. La Roche Posay Effaclar DUO Dual Action Treatment
Currently £23.95 from Lavishchoice, click here to be directed to the site.
I've acquired a few little friends-of-the-face recently which can't really be covered up with make up. I'm not sure if it's stress, hormones or the weather, but my skin has been majorly acting up. I've heard so much about the La Roche Posay range and I think that February will be the month that I finally give it a go.

3. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Ethereal Glow
Currently £28 from Space NK, click here to be directed to the site.
Just look at it...any sane beauty-lover would want this, surely. There are a range of shades to choose from but I don't have any blush shades that are light/baby pink, so I thought this one would be the best shade to go for. I never jumped on the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders as I thought that £38 was a bit steep for a face powder, however I don't mind spending that little bit more on a blush as I could use it sparingly if needed.

4. Estee Lauder Pure Colour Eyeshadow Duo in Raisins
Currently £23 from Boots, click here to be directed to the site.
I'm a sucker for plum shades so this duo is perfection for me. When I saw this product on Zoella's beauty favourites I knew I had to have it - the lighter shade is perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eye and the plum shade is gorgeous in the crease. I've wanted this for far too long now so I may just have to bite the bullet and go for it!

5. Bourjois Happy Light Foundation
Currently £11.99 from Boots, click here to be directed to the site.
If you're a big blog reader and YouTube watcher, you'll have heard about this product. Bourjois just bring it when it comes to bases and this one's no different. The amount of times I've swatched it in-store is bordering no ridiculous...I'm just waiting for my Bourjois Healthy Mix to run out before I purchase this beauty.

6. Diptyque Philosykos Eau de Parfume
Currently £85 from Space NK, click here to be directed to the site.
This scent is unlike anything I've ever smelled before. Just writing this is difficult as I can't even find the words to describe it. It's a fig scent, quite musky and woody, and just smells heavenly. It's a perfume that lingers, which seals the deal for me - I hate it when perfumes fade away after an hour or so. This is one of those perfumes that you try once and don't stop thinking about. I will definitely be purchasing this one in the near future.

7. Benefit They're Real Mascara
Currently £19.50 from Boots, click here to be directed to the site.
I received a sample of this mascara in my stocking for Christmas and as soon as I wore it for the first time, I knew it was the best mascara I'd ever used. I'm being very stingy with my sample bottle as I don't want to use it all up too quickly - I definitely recommend it and will be purchasing the full size tube as soon as my other mascaras run out!

There's a round-up of what I'm hoping to purchase in the month of February. I hope you like the idea of a little series, I'm looking forward to writing them - hopefully these posts will be a constant reminder that I need to treat myself throughout the months (not that I need any reminders...)

  2. I might consider that foundation, buying a new MAC one every few months is hurting my bank balance... x

    1. Hello, I'm definitely going for it once I run out of my current foundation :) it sounds wonderful! The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum (the one that I'm currently on) is so much better than both my MAC Studio Sculpt and MAC Face and Body...I never reach for them anymore. Daniela x

  11. I usually love Bourjois products and I'm very happy with my Healthy Mix foundation, but since the Happy Light concealer I bought was pretty much the worst concealer I ever tried, I don't think I'll try the matching foundation :)
