Summer Beauty Wishlist.

Summer Beauty Wishlist.

Summer is in full swing (even though the weather seems more autumnal right now!) and my beauty wish list is a big as ever. With new releases seemingly coming out every week, it's inevitable that my wish list keeps growing and growing. But unfortunately, money doesn't go on trees so a majority of products probably stay on my wishlists for a long time (I'm looking at you Estee Lauder Double Wear.) Keep reading to see all the beauty bits I'm lusting after right now.

The number one product on my wish list right now has to be the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. At first, I didn't think I'd be too bothered about it but now that it's all over my Insta feed pretty much every single day, I need to get it. It's the perfect palette for the upcoming Autumn months and I've been meaning to buy a new Naked palette for some time (I only own the Naked 3) and I feel this would be a good addition to my eyeshadow collection as I don't think I own any similar-ish shades.

Another palette I'm dying to get my hands on is the Too Faced Natural Love Palette. Have you seen this beauty? Oh my, it's stunning. Not only is the packaging so pretty and adorable, it contains 30 gorgeous shades that are right up my street. The only thing that is putting me off is the £52 price tag. Hmm, is it too soon to write up my Christmas list?

If you're a blogger or an avid blog reader, you'll know all about Colourpop. This brand has taken the blogging world by storm over the past few months and I'm dying to try them! And my wish list is pretty damn big. I mainly want to try their lip products, though. I love the look of the Ultra Matte Lip and the Lippie Stix.

Lastly, I've got my eye on the new range from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I've already tried a few products from her and I adore them, they are great products at reasonable prices! The Chasing The Sun collection is absolutely stunning, I'm loving the look Illuminating Powders, how pretty are they!? I'm also wanting the My Paradise palette, how cute are the Pineapple imprints?

The Must Have Scents For Summer.

The Must Have Scents For Summer.
When I was a teenager, So...? Fragrances were the go to brand for scents. I remember being obsessed with the Kiss Me body spray. Anyone else? I feel like every girl probably was at some point. Fast forward 10 or so years (omg, I'm old), So...? have made a bit of a comeback with their lovely range of Body Mists that come in various, gorgeous fragrances that have quickly become my go to scents this summer.

Over the past couple of months, my Instagram feed has been jam packed with stunning flat lays featuring these mists. The first thing that caught my eye was the pretty, fun, summery packaging and eventually, I couldn't resist so I ended up heading to Superdrug to pick a few up. I currently have 4 scents -

White Petals - My absolute favourite, I adore floral scents. This mist contains delicate notes of bergamot, freesia and water lily. It's pretty dreamy!

Vanilla Milkshake - I find this the perfect summer scent! It smells exactly like Vanilla milk shake, yummy! It features notes of sweet vanilla and a mix of peach and plum.

Floriental - Again, I love my floral scents so this was a must have. This mist features a fruity mix of pear, apple and mandarin and also, freesia and violet.

Fruity - A gorgeous fresh scent featuring zingy notes of mandarin and a blend of peachy notes.

What I love most about these is how handy they are. You can pop one in your handbag for touch ups throughout the day to make sure you continue to smell gorgeous or if you're headed to a festival soon they're the perfect fragrances to pack and therefore you won't have to worry about losing your favourite, expensive perfume! These body mists are available in 14 different scents and they are currently half price at Boots. Buy here.

Have you tried these body mists?

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse.

I've always been interested in Double Cleansing. It makes sense, doesn't it? Why would you use just one cleanser in the hope of removing everything the day has thrown at your skin from the likes of makeup to pollutants? One cleanse just isn't going to be enough. I have tried in the past to double cleanse using two different cleansers but always ended up being lazy about it. So, when I discovered the Pixi Double Cleanse, I had to buy it.

The June Makeup Bag.

The June Makeup Bag.

As I mentioned in May's makeup bag post, I'm now ditching the monthly favourite posts and sharing my monthly makeup bag contents with you all instead! We may already be two weeks into July, but better late than never right!?

Bourjois City Radiance Foundation |
I'm still wearing my other Bourjois foundation favourite but when I want something with a little less coverage that still gives my skin a flawless appearance, I'll opt for City Radiance. It's a great summer base in that it's light, contains SPF 30 to protect my pale skin on sunny days and has an anti-pollution screen which as a Londoner is something I really need!

NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam |
I've raved about this a lot now and I'll carry on for as long as this product is around. When wearing the Bourjois Healthy Mix, I always mix this in to give my skin more of a luminous glow. It really is beautiful!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer |
Told you you'd see this again! Yep, this is still my go-to concealer and it will be for a loooong time. Even though I'm worried about me overusing it and running out quickly as it's not cheap! So I might start saving it and go back to my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer for a little while...

Bourjois Java Rice Powder |
With my dry skin, I usually steer clear of powder. Cakey makeup? No thanks. But I had started seeing this powder on a ton of blogs recently and the reviews got me intrigued, so I had to try it. This is the most gorgeous pink-hued powder, oh my. It adds such a lovely glow to the skin without any cakey-ness or settling into fine lines. It's really beautiful and I'd really recommend it if you love that glowy look!

Sleek Rose Gold Blush |
I seem to buy anything that is rose gold or has rose gold in its name! I'm obsessed and I can safely say I'm addicted to this beautiful blush! I own nothing like it and it just adds a really lovely pop of colour to my cheeks! It's the perfect blush for warmer days and I love how compact the packaging is!

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick |
Say hello to my new favourite highlighter! This one is so easy to apply, just one swipe, blend and voila, you've got a gorgeous glow to the cheekbones. I can't get enough of this, it's really beautiful. A definite must try.

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof Mascara |
I've been meaning to try this for years and I finally decided to pick it up a few weeks ago. It's the only waterproof mascara I own but I can't comment on the water proof-ness yet however it's a really lovely subtle mascara. It lifts the lashes and gives them a lovely fluttery look, I wouldn't say it gives much in the way of volume or definition but if you just want a nice mascara for daytime wear that doesn't look too extreme, try this one.

Seventeen Lip Lustres |
I've had these for ages and never really thought much of them but I decided to give them a go recently and they're really lovely when worn on top of lipstick! They don't add much in the way of colour but if you like that glossy lip look then these are great. No stickiness and long lasting too!
