Spring/Summer Wishlist

Spring/Summer Wishlist

As exams and the time leading up to them is what's mostly filling my calendar for the next two months, my trip to New York right after that is what I'm mostly looking forward to at the moment. A trip to New York means I will finally have access to a lot of brands I don't normally, and so I've made this wishlist of some things I really want. I'm not saying I'll necessarily buy all of them, and I don't know if Reiss really is anywhere outside the UK, but I sure wouldn't be too surprised if I come back with most of these things in July. I've done quite a lot of research and feel these are all amazing products that I will love using. I've been good with my spending lately, I think, and I am managing to finish up a few products so feel a few of these purchases could be justified! Far from all though, but oh well. I'm really set on eventually having a much more downsized collection with only luxury products that I really love.

Review: Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre - Natural Finish Loose Powder


Quite the popular powder in the blogosphere, I caved and picked this beauty up about 2 years ago. The Poudre Universelle Libre is ment to give a natural finish, yet keep the skin from being shiny and help makeup last longer. It also comes in gorgeous Chanel packaging with the infamous logo on top. Naturally, I was quite excited.

NOTD: Dior Nail Glow


With the success of their Lip Glow balm type product that works with your natural lip color and enhances it, Dior decided to release a few other 'Glow' products with their spring line. They've all debuted as limited edition items, but one can make a small, but careful assumption that they are limited edition only to test the waters. I would guess on them making a comeback depending on how quickly, and if, they sold out. I've so far not used any of the glow products for the lips, but the 'Nail Glow' really tickled my fancy so I picked one up.

Review: La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream


I got this as a bit of a christmas treat for myself last year (2012) after being blown away when using a few samples of it. The full sized product has not disappointed, to say the least, and I figured it was time I write up a review for you guys.

Review: Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara


It's not all that long ago I was standing at a Chanel counter looking at their mascaras and thinking to myself that Chanel really needed to come out with a new one. I know some people love Chanel mascaras, but I was yet to be wowed. 'Was' being the operative word..

Review: Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser


After finishing what little was left of my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, and being quite pleased with it this time around, it seemed natural to move onto my Soap and Glory Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser that many would consider a dupe, and rightfully so.

Haul: A Few New Things


I picked up, and was gifted, a few new things this past month that I thought I'd share with you guys. There's so many exciting new launches coming this spring and summer, not even half of which are out yet, so it's hard to keep up. These are a few things, a few of them new products, that I'm excited to try out.

Review: Kanebo Sensai Cellular Performance Intensive Hand Treatment SPF 8


As I suffer from dry hands if there's any product I've tested literally hundreds of (not really, but a lot!) it's hand creams. Especially throughout winter I usually have to re-apply handcream almost hourly. Add to that my obsession with personal hygiene meaning constantly washing my hands plus very frequent use of hand sanitizers and a good hand cream is an absolute must. Second only to dry lips, dry hands are one of those things I simply cannot deal with.

Empties: February 2013


While it's not as massive as last month, I'm quite pleased with the amount of empties I went through this month as well. Inspired by pinksofoxy on Youtube's "Make Out 2013" videos where she's getting rid of a lot of excess stuff, I have managed to trash a few things I knew I was never going to use and it feels really good! Just a few items for now, but hopefully I will slowly get better at it. Onto my empties..

Favourites: February 2013



This month have been very simple in the makeup department for me. It's mostly been about getting ready quick and trying to keep my skin and lips from being too dry. I am so ready for the weather to get warmer and to start wearing lighter layers!
