1. Diorskin Nude BB Creme // 2. Chanel Les Beiges // 3. Institut Esthederm Adaptasun // 4. Saint Laurent 'Betty'
Lisa Eldridge AKA Goddess of Make-Up has sparked a huge interest in the Diorskin Nude BB Cream after posting this video. After enjoying the Vichy Idealia BB Cream so much and almost coming to the end of the tube, I decided that this would be next base purchase. I have it on good authority from Sarah that the lightest shade of the Diorskin Nude is perfect for us pale folk. Winning.
The Chanel Les Beiges powder is a rollover from June's Wishlist. While I admitted then that it was the beautiful packaging that sucked me in, I have since swatched it multiple times and have all kinds of feelings for it. It is silky, it is smooth, it is illuminating and it makes me excited to buy it and try it!
Last summer I recall reading a lot about the Institut Esthederm sun protection range. The Adaptasun was the product which got the most hype and I'm still intrigued by it. It and its fans maintain that it encourages the skin to self-protect and also increases melanin synthesis to encourage a deeper natural tan. Honestly, it seems like a load of bluff to me and, for €40, I really can't believe it's worth that. However, when has sensible thinking ever ruled a beauty addled mind?! If any of you have tried this, I would love to hear your thoughts.
One non-beauty wish of mine is the Saint Laurent 'Betty' bag (It'll always be YSL to me!). This is a beautiful, structured, medium-sized bag with a long shoulder chain strap. Now, these bags retail for around €1,500 which, at the present time, is not even close to a possibility for me. So, you can imagine how I felt when I saw it on sale in Brown Thomas for circa €650?! It took approximately 2.5 seconds before it sunk in that €650 is also not in my current price range. I was heartbroken! For now, I will just lust from afar!
What are you coveting this July?!
