Spring Wishlist

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blusher in Radiant Magenta.
I was on a no blush buy but that soon went of the window after seeing pictures of this stunning blusher. Described as a "golden fuchsia combined with radiant light powder for a Summer glow". How can I resist? The colour alone stole my heart. This is, without a doubt, my favorite beauty release so far this year.

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Cologne
It's officially Spring and here I am lusting after an Autumnal scent ... Typical. Mind you I haven't even had a sniff of this yet but it's the scent I'm super excited to try so I better get to a Jo Malone store sharpish!

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl
This gorgeous cherry red lip pencil has been on my wishlist for so long now I think it's just time I bite the bullet and purchase it. The formula is matte but apparently non-drying. Sounds too good to be true but I'm looking forward to giving it a whirl and sporting this stunning shade with minimal makeup.

Essie Angel Food
Now that Winter is over It's time for me to start rocking Spring's lighter and prettier shades. I am still on the hunt for the perfect pale pink nail polish and Essie Angel Food may just be the shade I've been searching for. Fingers crossed the formula is a good'un.

Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumbing Lip Balm.
I am a lip balm junkie and seeing as my Nuxe Reve de Miel is running out (OK its only half empty) it's the perfect time to try a new one. A girl needs to be prepared, right? The price is eye watering expensive for a lip balm so all the Boots points I have been accumulating recently will come in very handy indeed.

Crazy For Chanel

Friday, 7 March 2014

I popped into Boots for some hair grips and before I knew it I was standing in front of the Chanel counter. How did that happen? Oh Who am I kidding? I could find that counter blindfolded! After ooh-ing and ahh-ing and swatching up a storm I finally settled on the Rouge Coco Shine in "Suspense". A beautiful fuchsia red with shimmer. I am a berry lip kinda girl but this bright fuchsia shade was calling my name. It suits my skin tone beautifully too. Not only is the colour fabulous but the formula of this lippy is ahh-mazing- a soft, creamy offering that is light-weight and feels hydrating on the lips. Winner! Who doesn't love a bit of Chanel eh?

Suspense was released for the Spring 2013 Avant -Premiere de Chanel Collection and was made permanent in the Rouge Coco Shine line which is lucky for me because I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it otherwise. I would describe Suspense as being semi-sheer but build able. This shade lasts a couple of hours on me so not the best staying power however I don't mind whipping out this gorgeous lipstick to reapply makes me feel glamorous, you know? ......Well a girl can dream, right?

I can imagine myself wearing this shade a lot in the warmer months with just tinted moisturizer, a dab of cream blusher and lashings of mascara. Boom. Spring/Summer makeup done.

I love the uber luxe black and gold packaging with the famous logo that will make any girl's heart beat faster. Chanel packaging can't be beat!

Retailing at £24, pricey right? I know, but what can I say? I love me some Chanel! Do I want another one? Hell yes! "Fiction", I'm coming for you.....
