Wishlist | April


Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer | £52
The price may make you wince a little a bit but this Hourglass Primer sounds like a dream. It does so much to prep and prime the skin including minimising pores, reducing redness and smoothing out the skin to create the most beautiful base before applying your foundation. It also has spf15 to help protect your skin from the sun which is always an extra added bonus.

There's something about the words 'melting balm' that instantly draw me to a product and Charles Worthington has really captured me on this one. After having a three month break from using any heat on my hair it is actually in the best condition that it's been in years, however it is starting to feel a little bit dry from the sun and would really benefit from a hydrating treatment. This is a fuss free product that is best applied to dry hair and then washed out twenty minutes later with shampoo and conditioner. That means that there's no faffing around having to wait for it to soak in mid shower which makes using it super easy!

As always, Benefit's marketing is spot on so I've been seeing their new fake tan constantly floating around on social media. I currently have a fast-fading tan from my recent trip away so not before long I'll be needing to keep it topped up from the bottle. Aside from it's huge selling point of being streak-free I love the unique- but obvious- concept of the sponge applicator attached to the lid. Gone are the days of having to search for that old soggy mitt that's fallen to the back of your drawers.

I'm still on a quest to find the perfect product that enables me to fake having chiseled cheeks. Hollow seems to be the latest craze at the moment so naturally I just have to try it out. It's a pale creamy brown which means that it's a very subtle contour, making it perfect for those minimal makeup days.

When it comes to hair tools GHD is always a winner for me. I wouldn't use any other hair straighteners so now that they brought out the Curve I'm desperate to see if they live up to expectation. Often I use my straighteners to tousle my hair and create soft waves so I'm really excited that GHD have finally introduced a purpose made product.  What tends to be an issue whenever I've used curling wands in the past is that they don't reduce the frizz. Not having tried these before I can't guarantee that these will get rid of the frizz but just because they're GHD, I have every faith! 

Urban Decay Naked Concealer | £17.50
Of course there's another concealer on my wishlist; with so many on the market I just can't get enough. I've heard lots of fab things about the Naked Concealer and was really tempted to buy it just before I went away travelling in December. I even went to get colour matched (Light Warm for under eyes/  Light Neutral for blemishes) but in the end I couldn't justify spending the money when I was so close to leaving and needed  to save every penny I could get. Four months later and I'm still just as tempted. Full coverage, blends beautifully and doesn't settle into creases. How can you say no?

I'm not sure why I love this mug so much as in reality it's pretty much just a plain white mug however the simple gold lip stain makes it so much more. It's a cute decorative touch, so much so that I think I'll be using this as an ornamental piece in my bedroom. Who says that mugs have to be used for drinking out of?

Z Palette | £15.95
I recently bought an individual eyeshadow from Makeup Geek which I'm been so impressed with and definitely planning on buying more to start building up a collection. This ultimately calls for the need of a Z Palette to keep the little metal pans organised together in one place. It's not a particularly exciting item to be adding to my wishlist but the products that will be going inside certainly are.

  5. So many things on here I want! The Naked concealer has been on my wish list for so long, but also not sure if I can justify it. I'm really keen to try the Benefit bronzer too, it's such a clever but simple product!

  8. The beauty of wish lists... :) I had wanted to try that Hourglass primer for ages but I can't justify the price! And now they came up with the Ambient Lighting primers so I think I will get one of those instead. x

  9. I love hollow but at the same time I find it to be quite a stiff product that doesn't blend that easily which can be frustrating

    1. Oh no that's a shame. I usually find Illamasqua are really great for being able to blend products in seamlessly!

  11. I didn't know anything about the GHD curve and now I very much need it in my life. The all-over body bronzer is also another must have, especially if you're pasty white like me!
