• February lusting // March wish list •

• February lusting // March shopping list •

February has been the month of lusting - there have been so many product launches and I've read countless amazing reviews whilst thinking to myself "ooh, I must pop that on my shopping list". Last night I decided to see just how much my shopping would cost and it came to nothing short of £406 - at that point, I knew it was never gunna happen. So for this month's lusting post, I have narrowed it down to 6 very special, very beautiful products that I believe are justified in their own way. If you wanted to check out what I was lusting over in January, here's a link to last month's lusting post.

1. Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Pastel Preppy
Currently £7.99 from, click here to be directed to the site.
We're fast approaching Spring so I'm starting to think about lighter, pastel-y lip colours. This one seems perfect, a very soft orange, which is a great colour to transition us into the next season. It will come as no surprise that I've included products from Bourjois because I love them as a brand!

2. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
Currently £49 from Charlotte Tilbury, click here to be directed to the site.
This is just so beautiful. Everything from the packaging to the product itself is so gorgeous in my eyes. The sculpting powder (left) looks like the perfect contour colour, not to orangey like a bronzer, but not too muddy like some contour powders. I'm a massive fan of highlighters and this champagne-y colour looks like the shade of highlighter that would suit me - I much prefer a champagne highlighter to pink or pearly highlighters when it gets to Spring/Summer.

3. Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Leave in Spray
Currently £3.59 from Boots, click here to be directed to the site.
I'm nearly out of my Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment and I'm on the hunt for something which will give me the same effect, but for a more affordable price. Although I don't mind paying £25 for a hair treatment (especially one that works wonders on my dry ends), I'm always open to trying new products and I've heard great things about the relatively new Dove hair care range.

4. Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
Currently £9.99 from Boots, click here to be directed to the site.
I ran out of my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation *sob* a few weeks ago so I need to head out to Boots and buy myself a new base. I'm currently testing a few mineral products from another brand and I'm really enjoying them (a review will be up on this soon!) but I will need a liquid base for days that I want a different sort of finish. As I've said before, Bourjois are one of my most used brands, if not the most used brand in my make up collection, and I always trust their products to deliver. I've heard lots about CC creams and although I do think they're a bit of a fad that will probably die out soon, I wanted to give them a go before I can make a judgement. If I'm honest, I didn't get on too well with any BB creams from any brand, but I'm going into CC creams with an open mind. I'm excited to pick this one up! And for £9.99 for a well respected brand, you can't go far wrong.

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Goldtone Stainless Steel & Leather Watch in Maroon
Currently £111.11 from Saks Fifth Avenue, click here to be directed to the site.
I'm not sure there's a lot to say about this one...the photo explains it all. It's just absolutely stunning. I'm not usually a watch kind of girl, but I do need to start wearing them for when I'm in the classroom and need to keep an eye on the time, and what better way to ease myself into watch-wearing than with this stunner? It's my birthday on the 16th and I'm hoping to get enough birthday money so I can buy this, but we shall see - watch this space!

6. The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
Currently £12 from The Body Shop, click here to be directed to the site.
I never went for the whole Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm thing as I just knew that other brands would bring out more affordable alternatives, and sure enough, they did. This is usually the case with high-end products so I always try to be patient and wait for a cheaper option! I usually remove my make up with pure coconut oil, but for a change I thought it would be nice to try something from The Body Shop's new skincare range. I love anything gentle as I try to treat my skin with as much care as possible, whilst trying not to use too many chemicals in the products I expose it to, and this cleansing butter seems to tick all of the boxes.

So there are my six most-wanted products from the month of February. Spring is in sight and I'm feeling really positive about the rest of the year, and I always look forward to a change in season as I can start thinking about mixing up my make-up and skincare to suit the weather.

Do you have any products that you've been lusting over lately?
