Beauty Wish List: Spring and Summer

My name is Anne and I am a bit of beauty addict… like must of you I suppose, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this. I love keeping up to date with new releases by brands, although I prefer buying tried and tested products over limited editions or special collections.

When I first saw the press release on the Charlotte Tilbury Norman ParkinsonΒ special collection, however, I knew resistance was going to be futile. How beautiful is that packaging?! This collection will be available as limited editions from July onwards, so it requires a little patience. To distract myself, I threw together a little beauty wishlist for the spring and summer.

Beauty wishlist

I will be the first to admit there is a lot of Charlotte Tilbury on this list! I have settled on theΒ Dreamy Glow Highlighter from the Norman Parkinson collection (no prizes for guessing it’s in the bottom left corner) for now, though I am also tempted by theΒ Colour of Youth Lip & Cheek Glow. These aren’t on the site yet, but just Google them if you want to see previews by very lucky beauty bloggers. I have listed the rest of the products below and linked to the brand’s own website.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette The Dolce Vita

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

Liz Earle Cleanse&Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser in Rose& Lavender

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Bitch Perfect

Any beauty products you are lusting after for the coming season?

        Have never tried Anastasia Beverly Hills, but I believe it has recently been introduced here. Will definitely have a little browse πŸ™‚

      Oh yes, I am really looking forward to trying the hourglass powder: it just looks so pretty πŸ™‚
      Isn’t it just?! I am having so much trouble picking just one item, I feel I might splurge and get the set! Do you have a favorite yet?

        Wouldn’t that be amazing if she packaged a set (to make the decision a bit more easy?!)? Hmmm. I’m leaning toward the cream bronze and glow. They’re all so pretty though. CT drives me wild. She hits my makeup crazy bone every time! She needs to stop, LOL.

    The Hourglass powder is amazing, I love it to set my under eye concealer or set my foundation. And it can also be used as a highlighter – it’s so versatile. I am dying to try Charlotte Tilbury!

    Bourjois Rouge velvet! Take it! Take it! πŸ™‚
    I have lots of stuff on my wishlist. I would like Collistar brow gel. It’s alike Benefit brow gel but cheaper and more ml in packaging:) Also was looking at summer collection lancome blushes..But I think they didn’t appear in store for now. πŸ™‚

      I have heard so much about the Rouge velvet: any color recommendations?!
      Haven’t seen the Lancome summer collection yet but will keep an eye out!


      • anastasiias April 29, 2015 / 11:02 pm

        I saw preview of collection online. I’d recommend to go for some bright shade. I like most of all Ole Flamingo and Frambourjoise. Ping Pong is a nice shade too but it’s cooler. If such suit you consider it also:) Shade Nudist is very popular but it’s more like bright nude not actually color of lips. And it’s a little tricky one as it looks differently on different people. On some it’s pinky-mauve on others dusty rose on others dark pink-beige. I don’t know how come:D It’s a mystery. Shade Grand Cru a little different in texture and it’s harder to apply that’s why I don’t recommend it if to compare with others. If you like peach shade there is one Peach club. They have now 4 new shades in collection but I can’t comment on them. I think you have what to choose from:) Why do I recommend to choose bright shade (at least one) because it’s really long-lasting. And sometimes I feel like not wearing bright lipstick as I need to check on it from time to time and with this one I can have dinner with several dishes and it will still be on my lips. I own shade Ole flamingo and I have two posts about it (just search at the top of my page for it).

          Thanks for this!!! Now I am even more confused πŸ˜‰
          I think I would like one more nude shade, maybe nudist or the new pink color but you are so right: I will have to swatch first.
          I loved the look of Frambourjoise or flamingo! Might have to but both.
          And I agree this sounds like a lovey low maintance for a bright lip, who has the time and patience to keep re applying!!

    That Charlotte Tilbury palette is on my wishlist too! Along with a few Hourglass products. I’ve never tried a hot cloth cleaner before, but I like that the one you mentioned is Rose and Lavender scented. Maybe I should put it on my endless wishlist :).
