A Beauty Wishlist
In beauty terms, I'm always eyeing something up. I keep a list on my phone and while most of the stuff doesn't end up in my possession, it's always fun to make lists, especially where cosmetics are involved! Here's what I'm coveting right now...
1. Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne
I was never overly interested in Jo Malone fragrances until Laura got me to smell them all on a trip to Brown Thomas - and now, I am wanting quite a few of them! I love Red Roses and Blackberry&Bay, but the one that stood out the most to me, was, unsurprisingly, the Grapefruit cologne. I am obsessed with grapefruit scents - this is a sophisticated, grown-up one which, to me, smells like a more affordable Hermès Eau de Pamplemousse Rose.
2. Origins Make A Difference Treatment Lotion
I really love the Make a Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment, and as a lover of toners, am really interested in this treatment lotion from the same line. It's been getting good reviews, so I feel like this might be my next skincare splurge in the quest to keep my unruly skin in check.
3. Jouer Matte Moisture Tint
I've seen positive reviews of this all over the place, and as most people liken it to a light foundation rather than tinted moisturiser in terms of coverage, I feel like this could be a great everyday base for during the week. I'll have to use up a few of my other bases before I can justify buying this, though!
4. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer
This is basically a pot of extremely pigmented liquid foundation/concealer, which you can custom mix with other bases/moisturisers to your own taste, or use solo/as a concealer (not that you can't do that with other products!). I've been curious about this for so, so long, and as the shade range is excellent, I feel like it could be a good multi-tasker that I'd get a lot of use out of!
5. NARS Douceur Blush
The whole 'nude blush' thing is a bit of an obsession of mine, and I use Tarte's Exposed and Illamasqua's Naked Rose so frequently that I'm dying to try another shade from this colour family. NARS blushes have really been getting a lot of attention from me lately, and this one gets rave reviews, so I think it'd only make sense to purchase!!
