I'm waving a pretty cheery goodbye to January - it's possibly my least favourite month of the year. Not only is the weather dull and dreary and Christmas is over but I almost always have absolutely no money left over after Christmas and the sales and have the longest wait for payday ever. I don't know whether it was delirium induced by my spending ban, but new products seemed to be launching ten a penny in January when I could least afford to buy them, so I've built up quite the wishlist. Now that February and pay day are both here, my only concern is what I'll buy first.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade has been on my radar for a little while as I've heard such good things about how easy it makes it to create an amazing but natural brow. It's much more accessible now it's at cult beauty so it's earned a place on my wishlist. I love all things naked - when it comes to Urban Decay that is - so although I feel they're kind of over-doing the whole naked bandwagon, I still really want to try a gorgeous looking Urban Decay naked lipgloss - they even match some of the shades in the eye palettes.
Every video I watch on youtube seems to include the Charlotte Tilbury dolce vita palette lately, so that obviously means I need one too - the Dolce Vita has some stunning deep neutral shades. I'm extremely excited for the launch of the Hourglass ambient lighting blush - I love the ambient lighting powders and the blushes look absolutely stunning. You can pre-order at Space NK now.
I've tried to avoid buying the L'Oreal miss manga mascara because I know for a fact there's no way I'm going to get the lush and super long anime lashes in the promotional images with my stumpy little lashes. But, my two besties want to get it, and it's on offer, so I think I'll end up giving it a go (followed by moaning that I don't have the lush and super long anime lashes in the ad...).
I can never resist having a peek at what's new with Paul & Joe - each collection seems to get pretties and the Spring 2014 secret garden collection is no exception. The Paul & Joe my secret garden powders are just too beautiful not to lust after.
I'm planning a quick Boots raid and top of my list is the L'Oreal Elvive fibrology shampoo and conditioner - it sounds amazing and like a real breakthrough in terms of what you can usually find on the shelves for fine and limp hair. The Ciaté strike a posy flower manicure has me excited for Spring and although it looks fiddly, I really love the idea of this kit which can create some really unusual floral nail looks - I've never seen anything like it.
I spotted Glamglow thirsty mud when idly browsing the US Sephora site (a very dangerous past-time, I know). It's not coming to the UK for at least a couple of months yet, but I can't wait to give it a try. Glamglow youthmud is possibly the best mask I've ever tried, so I have a lot of faith in the brand.
Another upcoming release is the Marc Jacobs daisy delight perfume - the bottle is gorgeous and I'm exciting to try out the scent. Daisy perfume in its various incarnations is onle of my favourite perfumes and I'm a sucker for collecting the limited edition bottles. Lastly I'm intrigued by the Olay 10 minute miracle primer - as the name suggests, it's a primer which works in 10 minutes, meaning you apply it and then wait that amount of time before doing your makeup. It claims to blur lines, imperfections and other obstacles to perfect skin. Get in my basket. Now.
Are any of these products on your beauty wishlist too?
