Wish List March 2013


Things I’m bringing forward from my last wish list post:

Dior Amber Diamond highlighter

Suquu Eyebrow Liquid Pen

Nars bronzer in Laguna

Nars Velvet Matt Lip Pencil

Everything else from last time I either bought (greedy!) or discovered that I didn’t like (Diane Von Furstenberg Diane Eau de Parfum was one of these, bit sad about that).

Things that have made it onto my latest list are:
(I should say here that this list is almost entirely thanks to this and this from Sali Hughes)

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse
I love multi-tasking products and this one can be used wherever you’d like a bit of sheen. Perfect for summery evenings and holidays.

Fake Bake Faux Glo Instant Tan
I’ve only tried fake tan once or twice and have always found it a bit of a faff. I use Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs much more often so I’m looking forward to trying this.

Dermalogica Sola Defence Booster SPF 30
I mentioned this in the last Beauty And The Bride post. It sounds like a genius way to give any skincare or make-up product a high sun protection factor.

Nars Blush in Orgasm
A pretty, suits-all blush that has earned iconic status.

Jo Malone Candles
I need to make a trip to a shop and find out which I like but I really want to own one of these. I want to be that woman.

Chanel Compact Mirror
A little bit of luxury for my handbag. I use my compact mirror daily and the way Sali talks about this one makes me believe I need a luxe version.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser
I had the oil-free version years ago and I’ve heard so much about it recently that I want to try it again. The thing that appeals to me the most is that it has slightly more coverage than your average tinted moisturiser but still has that barely there quality that you expect from this type of product.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
Every make-up artist I speak to, regardless of the brand they work for, says this is the best.

Rubis Tweezers
I’ve had my Tweezerman tweezers for years but these sound too good to pass up. If you’ve read my eyebrow story then you’ll know that I’m a sucker for anything that promises to make my brows better.

By Terry Touche Veloutee
I’m interested to try this, apparently you can use it as a concealer and a highlighter (which isn’t true of the YSL version).

Diptyque fragrances
I’m on a quest to find a perfume I love (I’m finding this quite hard – I don’t seem to like any of the classics or the ones by the big fashion houses). I already know I love the Philosykos Eau De Parfum and I want to try L’Ombre dans l’eau too.

Wish list August 2012

Products I’m coveting right now:

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy 4 – I want to try this out, I have a feeling that I might find it a bit too sheer.

Clinique Chubby Sticks – I’m not sure what shade(s) I want… Here is an incredibly useful post about them from Zozo of The London Lipgloss

Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturiser – I got this for Christmas last year and have since finished the bottle. I haven’t bought it again yet because it’s rather expensive, but I love it so will repurchase when I’ve saved up.

Dior Amber Diamond highlighter – This has been on my wish list ever since I saw this video from Tanya Burr when she did Made in Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh’s make up – watch the video and you’ll want it too.

Dior Show Iconic mascara – Hands down the best mascara I have ever used, it is amazing. Having said that I should also mention that my friend, Nell, bought this after I had been waxing lyrical about it and was so disappointed with it that she gave it away. But, for me, it is the best for beautifully big and curl eyelashes. My current one is drying out so this is a definitely repurchase.

Dior Rouge Serum in 510 – Another repurchase; this is a really beautiful nude that makes lips look like the best version of themselves. Dior also say it is a ‘treatment’ product, plumping and smoothing lips – got to love that. I’d quite like it in a brighter colour too – I bought the raspberry shade (760) and try as I might I’ve had to finally admit that it just does nothing for me. Something about it is too grown up but a bright pink I think would be lovely.

Tom Ford Santal Blush Eau de Parfum – I don’t actually know if I want this or not yet – I haven’t smelt it! But I do want to after watching A Model Recommends’ fragrance video. Part of me hopes I don’t like it – so expensive!

Aqua Di Parma Fico Di Amalfi – Oh my goodness I want this. Discovered, again, through Ruth Crilly of A Model Recommends – thank you Ruth!

Mac eyeshadows – in Mulch, Charcoal Brown, Wedge, Cranberry, and for brows, Brun, Mystery, Concrete and Coquette. All recommendations from Tanya Burr of Pixi2woo and Sam Chapman of Pixiwoo.

Diane Von Furstenberg Diane Eau de Parfum – Another I’m yet to smell but I’ve heard good things.

Mac lipstick in Ruby Woo – A classic red and Rihanna wears it.

A tinted moisturiser – For which I will look to A Model Recommends for, er, recommendations.

A foundation from By Terry – Not sure which one will be best for me yet but as these are by the lady who create YSL’s Touche Eclat I’m excited.

Suquu Eyebrow Liquid Pen – Recommended by Lisa Eldridge so you know it’s good.

Nars blush in Exhibit A and Sin – Exhibit A looks completely outrageous in the pan but used carefully it gives a beautiful and natural flush – it was recommended to me by wedding make-up artist. Sin is recommended by Tanya Burr (through Fleur de Force).

Nars bronzer in Laguna – I’ve heard so many good things about this and it’s believable shade.

Nars Velvet Matt Lip Pencil – I had forgotten about these until I just came across them on the Nars website when I was getting the links for the products above. A friend used this on a night out and it was gorgeous and lasted all night. I think she had the shade Never Say Never.
