November Beauty Wishlist


First up on my beauty wishlist… I was hoping to buy this when the Autumn instalment of student loan came in, however the staff at Charlotte Tilbury, who are terribly lovely, are also a little bit rubbish at replying to emails. They also sent me samples pretty swiftly.. but for the Magic foundation by mistake (I really didn’t like the formula of that one). So please hurry up and send me the right samples, Charlotte!

Charlotte Tilbury – Light Wonder Foundation (£32.00/40ml)

Charlotte Tilbury – Glastonberry / Bond Girl Lipstick Gift Set (£42.00/set)

Ever since the new gorgeous, matte lipstick shades arrived at CT last year I’ve had my eye on these two in particular. Now just for the holiday season (as far as I’m aware), they’ve been released as the ultimate duo and for a very reasonable price. The packaging is gorgeous, and the colours compliment each other as day-to-night shades.

Charlotte Tilbury- Bar of Gold Skin Gliding Highlighter (£32.00/each)

This is a relatively new re-release of Charlotte’s original Bar of Gold highlighter, with a brand new product design and gorgeous packaging a plus! It claims to be an all over glowing shimmer to convert your skin from dull to radiant in no time. In all honesty I am a complete sucker for the packaging here, but anything Charlotte Tilbury, and I’m sold.

Hourglass – Ambient Lighting Edit (£65.00/palette)


Hourglass is known for its glowy ambient powders, that apparently, work wonders for your complexion. Whilst allowing you to explore the new highlighting/strobing trend without overdoing it.

This is a limited edition holiday palette that combines the much loved Ambient Lighting shades, with a brand new exclusive shade – Iridescent Strobe Light. This palette is at a decent price for Hourglass Cosmetics, as it contains 6 different shades.

However I can dream on, as by the time I have any Christmas money this will no doubt be out of stock everywhere –sigh.

Laura Mercier – Invisible Loose Setting Powder (£29.00/11.34g)

I’ve been lusting after this product for ages, but I can’t justify buying it because I still have some of my cheap, but good, Elf pressed powder left.

However, after a shocking turn of events, I have finally “hit pan” (almost finished) my Elf powder. So this is looking like a very likely investment in the near future.

It has so many great reviews online, and promises silky soft skin, whilst diffusing/blurring imperfections, and it apparently perfectly sets your make up for hours and hours.

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Liquid Lipstick in Bad Girl

I have literally had this on my eBay watch list since December 2k14.
But, after hearing many mixed reviews about the ABH formula I just haven’t taken the plunge and bought the darn thing yet.

As you can see from the pictures, it is a purple based plum colour with a metallic sheen… and is completely matte –squeals.
The internet is of mixed opinion when it comes to the ABH Lip products, some saying the colour is worth the okay-ish application, etc.

As I live in the UK, any of the ABH lip products are ridiculously hard to get. And when you finally find somewhere that ships it to ol’Blighty, it gets a lot more expensive.

eg. $20.00 in the US is about £13.00.
The cheapest I found (that actually ship to the UK without ridiculous postal times of up to a month) was £25.00, without delivery.

ABH, please choose a department store and start stocking up UK shelves!
