The weekend Lust List!

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 19 - 2011

I always love reading about what other people are coveting but seeing as I rounded off this week with a sneaky Guerlain Meteorites purchase, these will have to remain firmly in my lust list for the time being…

1. NEOM Luxury Organics Mini Bath Oil Set – £15

I think this little set is amazing value for money, you can get around 10 baths from 5 vials which works out at only £1.50 a bath.  I’ll be surprised with myself if I can make it through the next week without moving these from my lust list into my verymuchwentandboughtit list.

2. Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser SPF25 – £21

Exclusively available at Selfridges and Brown Thomas until mid-April, I’m desperate to try the new Clinique Tinted Moisturiser.  I’m a total tinted-moisturiser addict and simply can’t bear the feeling of heavyweight foundation in the Summer.  I know we’re not quite there yet with the weather but I’m all about the forward-thinking! (and the shopping).

3. Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50 – £21.82

I’ve been getting acquainted with a few Alpha-H samples after a recent blog event and a couple of items have really caught my attention.  One of them is the Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser that provides light moisturisation combined with heavy-duty SPF.  Because I already favour specific moisturisers, I just want a full-on SPF for the Summer that isn’t going to interfere with other products.  This is probably the one I’ll be purchasing in a full-size version.

4. The Organic Pharmacy Marigold & Comfrey Hand & Nail Cream – £16.50

Still on a bit of a quest to replace my Bliss Blood Orange and White Pepper Hand Cream, this rich yet light offering from The Organic Pharmacy is top contender!  I stole a squeeze last time I was intore and it smells beautiful, keeps moisturisation levels up and absorbs like a dream.  What more can you really ask for?

5. Malin + Goetz Tobacco Candle – £37.00

When I see something described as an entheogenic experience, quite frankly… I want in.

Although at £37.00 it may be a little while before I take the plunge, especially as Mr. L just doesn’t ‘get’ candles.  Infact, the last time I bought a pricey (and it wasn’t even THAT pricey) candle… he waved a £20 note around infront of the flame going “well if you can do it…”.  Philistine.

Screw the iPad, I might buy him this one for Father’s Day.

6. Agent Provocateur 30ml EDP – £21.75

From one entheogenic experience to another… more… sensual scent.  Agent Provocateur brings the sexy, sexy back.  It also reminds me that I need to raid Rae’s perfume stash as this was another recommended to me by her quite, QUITE exquisite nose.

Screw Father’s Day… isn’t it Mother’s Day soon hmm?

So there’s my weekend lust list, what’s hitting the top of yours today?

    tobacco candle?! i’m a non-smoker but i do like the smell of cigars, (not cigarettes though!)

    Your recent Meteorites purchase is at the top of my list! Please please review/swatch soon! If I can’t make the plunge, at least I can live vicariously through you!

    had to look up entheogenic- interesting for a candle to be decribed as that. wikipedia says”the term entheogen is used to refer to any psychoactive substances when used for their religious or spiritual effects, whether or not in a formal religious or traditional structure. This terminology is often chosen to contrast with recreational use of the same substances”! weekend lust list for me – lancome hydrazen spf 15 ( am hearing rumours of discontinuation)

    I’m so pleased that Alpha H has been getting publicity lately, it’s been a favourite brand of mine for years! Fantastic stuff :)
    xo

  6. i just started using the clinique tinted moisturizer and i absolutely love it! the weight/consistency is the best i’ve found, plus the shade match is really nice.

  7. Katrine says:

    That sunscreen looks interesting, as does the tinted moisturiser. I’m personally on a never ending quest to find a hand cream with SPF – I have only ever found one, unfortunately with an undefendable price tag.

  8. Vijaya says:

    That tinted moisturizer is a friend of mine’s fave. Thank goodness I don’t wear tinted moisturizer, or I’d want it too!
