The Beauty Lust List

Hey my lovelies, hope you're all feeling fab today! I can't believe we are nearly into September, before we know it Christmas will be just around the corner!!

Today I decided to do a lust list, just a wee list of items that is on my list to purchase and treat myself to. Let me know if you guys have tried any.

Clarins Pore Control Serum
This serum sounds like it was made for me. I have used a few of the Clarins serums, my favourite being the bi phase one, it's perfect for day time as it's so light a d makeup sits fab under it! The pore control ingredients really intrigue me,incorporating vine flower extracts which works on the structure of the pores to allow them to appear reconstructed and tighter. This serum comes in at £40 in most places and Debenhams have it at £40.50 at present,  and without a doubt it's one I plan on adding in when I finish my stem cell treatment from Image.

Joico K Pak Treatment
This is a deep reconstructive product for the hair, and if my girl Sabrina loves it, well we know it's going to be good. Now for the science bit.. the quadramine complex aims to reconstruct and help with the strength and texture of the hair to leave it soft, supple and shiny. Look Fantastic normally has this on great offers and it's currently at £13.81

Benefit Brow Contour Pro
We all know Benefit is famed for their fab brow products, I couldn't tell you how many tubes of gimme brow I have went through, it's just the lazy girls brow best friend, trust me, pop in and get the girls to try it on you, you won't regret it. Well the brains behind the brows have came out with a new brow product, the brow contour pro, which a 4 product pen, which is totally like the old school multi coloured pens! It has a lighter and a deeper shade for the brow, it has an edge definer to get that perfect sharp bro and to finish the brows, it has a gorgeous arch definer to make the highest points pop. This comes in at £28.50 on the Benefit site and for a total one stop brow product it's definitely on my list to try!

Too faced Fruit Cocktail
This blush duo has to be one of the cutest products out there. Too Faced is famed for their cute, gorgeous smelling products and this blush palette is just as fab as the rest. The shade strobeBerry is stunning and I can't wait to get it on my face! Coming in at £25 for the duo here,I definitely think it's a great price and worth trying.

Clarins Joli Rouge Graduation Lipstick
We all know my love for the Joli Rouge range, but when I was looking for a new colour for Autumn and spied these, the red has went straight into my lust list. Clarins have made 3 duo lipsticks for this collection and I think this could be the perfect red for all those Christmas parties, with the duo aspect it will give your lips an element of an ombre effect. These come in at £22 on their site and for the duo aspect and limited edition packaging design, I would say this will be on many Santa lists this year.

 Jo Malone Scent Diffuser
As most of you know, hubby and I have just moved house, and I am totally going for a different aesthetic in this place, think grey, white, pops of blush pink and it's going to be your perfect Insta home!!  I have this one little space on these gorgeous shelves and I think a new Jo Malone Scent Diffuser in my favourite Lime, Basil and Mandarin would just look perfect,but at £62 on their page I am going to have to talk nicely to Santa!

Angel Solid Perfuming Pen
You all know by now, Mugler Flora Fortuna is my favourite scent for Summer and Angel comes a close 2nd. I was looking to buy a new bottle of Fortuna the other night but came across these solid perfume pens and must admit I am super intrigued by them. I always worry about my bottles getting smashed in my bag, so this could be the perfect answer. The pen comes in at £26 on their page and it could be a great gift for someone!

Too Faced Born this way Sculpting Concealer
This is the new, highly coveted concealer from Too Faced, based around the Born this way Foundation, and we all know I love it for full coverage days. The concealer can be used for cream contouring, but personally for me, I would definitely be trying it for days where I just need a little coverage maybe round nose etc. At £21.60 on Debenhams site it is pretty pricey for a concealer but the rave reviews it's getting, it's definitely on the lust list.

Diorskin luminizer
Not going to lie, when I spied this on Debenhams site, I did do a little squeak. I have fallen in love with 002 which is a pearly pink shade, which i feel would work best with my skin tone but at £34 from Boots it is a bit pricey for everyday, but I could put it on the list for special occasions couldn't I? 

I have to admit some of these products are on the spendy side for what they are, but I really believe we should treat ourselves sometimes and without a doubt these are perfect for that little treat!!
Have a fab week my loves, and we will catch up soon.

Keep smiling and inspiring
