nov wish list

Every now and then I convince myself that if I purchase a certain item my life will be full of wondrous joy. I of course know that this is utter nonsense and a means of justifying at least one frivolous purchase. With the festive period swiftly approaching I do have to save a little, so rather than recklessly splurging let me share what I am currently coveting - perhaps Father Christmas will be kind enough to leave one or two of the above items beneath the tree? A girl can but dream...

Topping my wish list is a foray into the world of Le Labo fragrances, I can't quite decide what I want more - a candle or a bottle of cologne? There is also the quandary of settling on what fragrance to choose too. At the moment I have been eyeing up the Santal products but at £150 per bottle or £46 per candle this is not a choice to be made lightly. You can find Le Labo via Liberty - link.

Charlotte Tilbury Make Up is a brand that leaves most of us weak at the knees, especially if a gift box of cosmetics is concerned. I have tried many of the brands best selling items but have some what neglected the foundations, I have all but promised myself that my next luxe purchase will be a bottle of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation (£29.50 -link). If you have tried it do let me know your thoughts.

I forever mean to pop into my local MAC store and finally hand over my bank card in exchange for their ready made palettes, each time I go to the place is normally packed and under staffed (not a criticism, weekends should be busy), as such I continually put it off. One day I will be the proud owner of both MAC Neutral 15 Pan Eyeshadow Palettes, today is not that day. You can find both here - link.

While in America I purchased a few of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks and truthfully I am not overly impressed with the formulation nor customer service, more about that in a future post. The one shade I really, really wanted was Neon Coral - part red, part orange, 100% neon, needless to say it was sold out everywhere. I truly don't believe I will rest until I at least try Neon Coral out for myself.

I'm a fickle fragrance collector, one day I love a particular scent, the next not so much. One fragrance I do not tire of is Tom Ford Private Blend Venetian Bergamont, it is fresh yet not overly so, fruity yet not tart and transpires as the perfect unisex wear everywhere scent. I dare you not to fall in love. You can find it here for £145/50ml (gulp) - link.

The last thing I need is another blush let alone a palette full but how could I not earmark the new NARS Steven Klein One Shocking Moment Palette (the whole collection is to die for). Yes it does annoyingly contain yet another pan of NARS Laguna Bronzer but as it contains five other cheek shades( none of which are NARS Orgasm Blush), all is forgiven. It's not often that I get to say this but for a premium brand offering I do think £49 is a great price tag, well at least for the quantity of product anyway. You can find the NARS One Shocking Moment Palette via Space.NK - link.

If you prefer a more muted approach to blush (and bronzer/highlighter for that matter) then you will not want to skip the Hourglass Ambient Light Edit Palette. Admittedly I do think it is a little costly given the size of each palette (they are even more dinky that those in previous offerings) but on the plus side this kit contains: two blushes,a bronzer, two light diffusing powders and an exclusive highlighter. I'd only be lying to myself if I said the want for this kit is not there. Again you can find this via Space.NK - link.

Lastly I'd like to add a few more Smith & Cult Nail Polishes to my stash, not only are the bottles and shades beyond cute but the formula is 5 free and Vegan. If you try one new polish brand this year (she says with just over a month to go until 2016) let it be Smith & Cult. At the moment Smith & Cult are exclusive to Space.NK and each polish costs £19 - link.
