I don’t know if you're all aware that I am on a spending ban or not but in case you’re not up to speed: I am on a spending ban indefinitely. This is due to the copious amount of products I already own, it seems whenever I make a commitment to keep my money in my pocket a myriad of gorgeous new products come out which make me want to throw away my willpower and make the mother of all online shopping hauls. In case, unlike me, you are happy to part ways with all your cash, here are a few lust-worthy items ideal for Summer that have caught my eye and I will most likely purchase the second I get paid this week. Let me know the products on your radar in the comments below.
First and foremost is this L’Occitane fragrance*, I used to work at L’Occitane a few years back and was obsessed with their men’s cologne. It smelled of musky, addictive lavender but sexy lavender not your Nana’s lavender. The new Terre De Lumier fragrance (£58 for 59ml/£78 for 90ml) sounds delicious, I am currently working my way through Jo Malone’s Nectarine and Honey and I think this would be the perfect follow up to it. With notes of almond, honey and lavender, it is describes as being sweet yet fresh which makes my mouth water just thinking about it. I rarely get excited about fragrances, but this one sounds too wonderful to leave on the shelf.
Honestly, I want to add most things Charlotte Tilbury to my basket but the infamous Magic Cream (£70), Wonder Glow Primer (£38.50) and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in Medium (£33) are the top three that I want in my life. All perfect for creating a lighter, long-lasting base in the warmer months. Plus her glorious rose gold packaging makes me salivate. I want that perfect supermodel skin so I can be ultra-cool and immaculate on the beach this August.Other base products are the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (£40) and Luminous Silk Compact (£38), they are both supposed to provide a perfect skin-like but still beautiful finish.
I have heard so many YouTubers rave about these gorgeous Highliner Gel Crayon eyeliners (£20) from Marc Jacobs. They are supposed to be incredibly pigmented, waterproof and long-lasting and they come in a range of drool-worthy and unique shades such as Jazzberry a frosty warm plum and Peridot, a beautiful cool pastel blue. They also boast different finishes, matte, frost and sparkly. These would make a gorgeous addition to any summer eye look.
Most of you know that eyeshadow palettes are my favourite things to buy and this exquisite release from Coloured Raine is no different. The Queen of Hearts Palette (£45) has the most gorgeous warm toned colours that would be perfect for an exotic holiday or even a summer barbecue. The pigmentation and creamy formula looks breathtaking. I have coveted this palette for a long time.
Who doesn't want a set of bright unicorn makeup brushes? This stunning Magic Wands Brush Set (£31) from Tarte makes me smile just looking at it. I love the fun colours of the bristle hairs and the twisted horn-like handles. It adds such a cool edge to a universal tool, these will stand out on any dressing table and would provide perfect assistance for crafting glitter-tastic festival looks.
Every season is an excuse to wear glitter in my opinion and I haven't read or heard a single bad review of the stunning Stila Magnificent Metals (£23). They come in an array of beautiful shades, work well on not just bare lids but also on top of other eyeshadows. I have seen them utilised in cut creases, festival looks, even as highlight, you just can't go wrong with these bad boys. I don't think there is anything else on the market that compares to these, they work so well and are in a league of their own. The shades Rose Gold Retro, Gold Goddess, Diamond Dust and Bronzed Bell are my faves.
This next palette is constantly out of stock, but the colours are just as gorgeous and mouthwatering as the Queen of Hearts Palette mentioned earlier and it is the Neapolitan Eyeshadow Palette ($38/£40). Especially the shade Spiced Almonds, it speaks to me on a pure and spiritual level. This painfully pretty palette looks gorgeous with the right balance of neutrals and stunning out of the box shades to create an endless plethora of looks. So pretty.
Another cult product that is relentlessly out of stock are the Farsali products. Both the Rose Gold 24K elixir (£55) and the Unicorn Essence (£50). These two are a firm insta-favourite and can be used in a multitude of ways. I have seen people use it as skincare, mix it with foundation, use it as a lip primer or a treatment. It's the perfect, all-purpose beauty oil created for flawless makeup. Farah Dhukai the owner of Farsali is a testament to the brand with her perfect skin.
Yet another hard to get ahold of product, Juvias Place blew up on the scene when Nikkie Tutroials raved about their Nubian 2 palette, but it is their Saharan palette ($28) pictured above that steals my breath and probably my money too. The colours are bold, bright and of great quality without breaking the bank, unfortunately their shipping takes a little longer but their product is well worth it.
I am not a liquid lipstick person but out of the many available on the market, I find myself drawn to Huda Beauty Liquid Mattes (£18) the most. The thin formula, excellent colour payoff, beautiful nudes and sleek frosted packaging make it hard for me to look away. The colours Bombshell, Medusa and Spice Girl are the highest on my list, I am hoping she comes out with a peachy shade soon too as that is all the rage. Her newer metallic colours look just as stunning, Silver Fox is an eye-catching metallic grey that would make a fantastic statement lip.
When I think of summer I think of flawless, glowy Greek goddess skin and the Gleam Body Radiance ($40) in Peach Deluxe from Melanie Mills Hollywood is the first product I think of that. Another versatile product that can be worn under, over or mixed in with makeup and all over the body to give you a radiant, sunkissed, perfected finish. It also comes in a shades to suit everybody.
Last but not least, the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette (£39) has been on my radar since it was available last December and even though I have gone back and forth on this product countless times I still can't help but be drawn to it. Peach is one of my favourite colours and fruits, such a flattering shade on almost all skin tones. I don't think the peach trend is going anywhere this summer, so this palette would make a great investment. The mixed reviews leave me weary but I can't get over how pretty it is, have you tried this palette? If you have let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
