The Lust List: Beauty Edition

Next up in my Lust List series is beauty.

As you will be able to tell I do tend to sway towards the high end products. Let me know in the comments what products you are lusting after.



Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow quad in vintage vamp is possibly the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen! I own the Dolce Vita palette, so I know that her products are impeccable quality. At £38, it’s the kind of purchase where you hand over your card with your eyes closed, but totally worth it in my opinion. The purple tones will look lovely with my green eyes. That’s it, I’ve convinced myself! This is definitely next on my shopping list.

Every beauty blogger and their dog raves about the Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation. I have tried a sample but I don’t think it quite worked on my combination skin. I have since heard that the lasting silk UV foundation might be better on my skin type. So I definitely want to try to grab a sample next time I’m in Selfridges.  

Probably the most expensive lipsticks on the market at £36!!!! It seems absolutely crazy but the Tom Ford Sheer lip colour in Paradiso is seriously tempting me. Everything from the gorgeous packaging, to the beautiful texture just screams pure luxury. I am lucky enough to have been bought a Tom Ford lipstick for my birthday last year by my friend Jasmin. Sometimes I just sit and stare at it, it’s a thing of beauty.

When Chanel bought out their cream blushes in summer last year, everyone went crazy for them. I wanted to wait and see if they were worthy of the hype. I peruse the Chanel counter, looking at them longingly. The shade Affinite always seems to jump out at me.  And let’s just take a moment to appreciate the packaging.

I love trying out new mascaras but I have never delved into any of the Dior offerings .Diorshow Iconic mascara in black is one that is talked about a lot. It also has my signature plastic brush.
