High-end Brand Summer Beauty Wish List

High-end Brand Summer Beauty Wish List

It's a beautiful sunny Sunday and I'm off to meet my housemate from the airport this morning! Airports always make me think Duty Free...Maybe I should text her this list? Haha oh the cheek!

Anyway, All the lovely high-end brands have been spoiling us with some well lush    products for their summer collections. So here is my Summer Wish List! This post is also featured on the Sparkly Goddess's blog when I guest-featured in May. I find it seriously hard to write Wish Lists (because I just want everything!!!).

I have 3 products on my Wish List, all of which are high-end brands but I think it's nice to dream big. Especially since so many drugstore brands have "dupes" of the high-end products anyways so you can just pick them up instead! Maybe I'll share my "Dupe Wish List" later in the week?

ON WITH THE LIST!  


MAC Lightful C Tinted Cream (with SPF 30 and Radiance Booster)

This is new from MAC for summer that is like one of those multitasking products; it has all the loveliness of a Colour Corrector but it also reduces imperfections, controls oil and increases the radiance of your skin too. What I love about this products is the Radiance Booster and vitamin C infused in the cream work together to correct your overall complexion over time. So little niggles like pores, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. Actually thinking about it, I have recently been using a cleansing brush that has done all these wonderful things for my skin too! It also has SPF 30/PA+++ which forms a protective barrier against UVA/UVB rays.

There are 9 shades available and a 40ml tube (pictured) costs £25.50 from MAC.




Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink

How amazing is this colour?! This shimmery golden, pinky peach just screams summertime! These shadow sticks are long-lasting with a budge-proof formula that stays put for 8 hours so it's not gonna melt in the heat or run down your cheeks if you get splashed in the pool. It's so easy to use too, just swipe and run! You look amazing in one stroke!

These come 18 shades including 7 new summer shades. These cost £20 from Bobbi Brown.




Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Volupté Summer Look 2015 in Shade 50 Orange Sagette

I think orange-toned pinks and reds will be seriously hot this summer! That's why it's perfect for the summer. It's a lightweight, non-sticky lip gloss with glitter flecks for a truly carefree summer vibe. I absolutely love this shade and the effect this gloss has on your lips will make any passerby's ice cream melt!

There are 2 shades in the summer collection and you can get them for £22 from YSL.

 


Those are my 3 top picks for this summer, all in some seriously smokin' shades that are bang on trend! If you've got any of these products please do share with me what you think! I'm really tempted to post up a Dupe for this list now so please share your thoughts or maybe you have your own dupes?

Also, on a shameless little note, have you seen my Instagram recently? It is looking pretty damn good if I do say so myself! Share your Instas with me so I can check you out *winks* Jokes, but you know what I mean..

I'm off for some homemade Brioche bread and a cup of tea, enjoy your day!
