August Wish List 2014

As mentioned last month, I plan on composing a monthly wish list hey we can all dream of owning all the pretty things can't we? I am trying so hard not to be frivolous of late as I want to take as much money as possible to the States later this year but to know me is to know I am not a saver. Anyway here is what I have my eye on as of late...

I have a love/hate relationship with Chanel Nail Lacquers, I adore the shade selection. There is not a Chanel polish that I have seen in which I haven't thought my what a beautiful shade, having said that they can more often than not be duped and most annoyingly the formula is prone to chipping. The three shades that currently have my attention are: Particuliere, Vamp (which at one point replaced Chanel Rouge Noir, or so I am told) and Secret which looks to be the perfect milky nude. As you can probably tell I am clearly ready for the Autumn.

Tom Ford Beauty in my opinion is the height of luxury and a brand I do like to splurge on every now and then. At the moment I am coveting the beautiful, cool toned nude lipstick that is Tom Ford's Sable Smoke Lipstick. It will most likely make my teeth appear yellow and yet I still want it fairly badly.

Not really a want, more of a get your act to together reminder to myself to purchase a new bottle of Clarins Blue Orchid Facial Oil. I swear by this stuff for dehydrated skin and go through it like water come the Autumn/Winter months.

Who doesn't love Jo Malone fragrances? Classy, timeless and oh so beautiful. While in the House of Fraser over the weekend I finally tested out the lesser spoken about 54 cologne and what can I say I am hooked. It combines all the well known notes that embodies the Jo Malone brand, it smells familiar yet oh so different. If you like a less than typical approach to fragrance this is one to seek out.

You can lead me by my nose, I dream in fragrance as you can most likely tell. Along with the divine Bella Freud candles topping my wish list is the dreamy Wild Mint Candle from The White Company. Mint is easily one of my favourite scents but this blend is special, it is fresh yet herbal and smells very similar to fresh mint that you would find in a herb garden. Have I mentioned that a herb garden is on my to do list. Yeah no seconding guessing with me is there.

By Terry Baume De Rose Nutri-Couleur in Rosy Babe is the one product I am trying to talk myself out of. Don't get me wrong I adore tinted lip balms for the ease of use and of course moisture but £35 for a lip balm is a little steep. I own the original and honestly I never use it, it's good but not great.

The new Becca Shadow & Light Contour and Highlighting Powder has caught my attention as I am a sucker for a good contouring product. I took to Google and had a good glance at the swatches and so far I have found both shades too warm to make a realistic contour? I think I'm going to have to nip into my local Space.NK and see this in person as I am really undecided which is so unlike me!
