Lipglossiping Autumn Lust List

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 1 - 2012

Literally. It’s not wishful, it’s damn lustful. Now that we’ve finished furnishing the flat, I’m putting aside a little money each month for some lovely beauty things that have been catching my eye recently.  It’s only fair that I be rewarded for my diligence, stiff upper lip and horrifying withdrawal symptoms, no?

Well here’s what I was daydreaming about last weekend…

01: Burberry Lip Velvet in Bright Poppy (£22.50) – I’m not sure if they’re out yet but these matte lipsticks promise to throw away the rule book when it comes to matte lip texture.  Hydrating?  I’ll believe it when I see wear it.

02: La Roche Posay Hydreane BB Cream (£15) – Oh, um.  HELL YES.  A BB cream formulated by La Roche Posay has me salivating at the thought.  I’m like a 6yr old on Christmas morning – hoping, praying that what’s under the tree is as good as she hopes.

03: Yves Rocher Flawless Finish Fluid Foundation in Rose 100 (£9.60) – Try saying that after a few.  I can hardly say it now (hides the bottle).  I tried this one on the back of my hand in the Yves Rocher store in Prague and it looked/felt soooo good but I’d already stretched my no-makeup budget to the max on some eyeshadows AND I’m currently in love with their BB cream (review coming soon!) so I skipped on this.  And now I can’t stop thinking about it.

04: Terry de Gunzburg Haute Parfumerie Flagrant Delice (£68) – I wrote about these a few weeks ago but have since had a cheeky spritz of Flagrant Delice on my wrist and I’m captivated.  Creamy almond milk and sun-ripened fig make for the most delicious combination that not only I, but Leila too have fallen in love with.  She says it’s a very “mummy” smell which I’m taking to mean that it makes her feel as downright comforted as it does me.  Honestly, such a beautiful and lingering scent. Wantsies. Can’t affordsies!

05: Orla Kiely Geranium and Myrrh Candle (£24) – I do have a soft spot for Orla Kiely, I know that those bloody designs are everywhere but, c’mon… they are brilliantly retro and modern all at once.  I was actually hoping I’d prefer the scent of the lime green design, seeing as that would have been the one to match my decor.  But in typical sod’s law-style fashion, it’s the Geranium & Myrrh in resplendent red that I’m lusting after.

 

What lovely things have you been lusting after recently?


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?
