Beauty Wish List January 2016

Beauty Wish List January 2016





Hi everyone,

We finally have an internet connection at home! We got the keys to our new house in August 2015 and since then it has been a constant battle to try and get a phone line and internet installed at our house but it’s finally over. Although this is fab news, it has meant that my internet browsing has reached an all-time high as I am making up for lost time and this, of course, is terrible for my bank balance. There are so many beauty and makeup products that are on my wish list at the moment with many more making their way on there every day. Here are a few of the things that will no doubt be making it into my online basket very soon!

1)   Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation – This has been on my wish list for so long now but the expensive price tag has always puts me off. I’m really not sure it can be worth the money but I have heard nothing but good things about it which keeps tempting me in!

2)   Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Another product for glowing skin , this palette looks so pretty and although it’s super pricey, I could see myself using it pretty much every day. I’m yet to try anything from Hourglass but the foundation and primer have also been on my wish list for some time.

3)   Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – Why are all the products on my wish list at the moment so expensive?? This is one that may just remain a wish list item as the £85 price tag makes my eyes water! I really want to try a product which contains Retinol though as I have read about some amazing results from using it and think my skin could really benefit from it.

4)   Boots No.7 Early Defence Day and NightCreams – For me, the Boots No.7 skincare range is highly underrated and I have had some fab products from there in the past, such as the Beautiful Skin Eye Makeup Remover. I have been using the Clarins Early Wrinkle Correction Cream, which I do like, but sometimes feels a little bit heavy on my skin so I’m looking to try something new.

5)   Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – I absolutely love the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector which I have featured in many a post on here and is why I think I would love this product too. I’m always drawn to anything that gives a natural glow to the skin so I think this would be right up my street.

6)   Benefit That Gal Primer – this is actually a primer that I have tried before and I loved it. However, I found that it ran out really quickly and at £22.50 a go it isn’t cheap which is why it has remained on my wish list. I have recently been thinking about treating myself to it again as it is a very long time since I had it last and my thoughts on it may have changed. I have come close quite a few times but then I look at my MaxFactor FaceFinity primer which is just £10.99 and always end up saving my money and going for the cheaper option.


It’s a shame so many of the products that I have been lusting over are so expensive and I just can’t bring myself to part with the money for many of them. If anyone knows of some good dupes for any of the products I have mentioned then please let me know in the comments below or on Twitter so I can give them a try! Also if you have a high street wish list or any product recommendations then please send them my way so I can look into some more affordable options!

Which products are on your wish list at the moment? Have you tried any of the ones I have mentioned?

Thanks for reading,
Hannah xx

    1. I know! :) I feel like having a party to celebrate finally getting the Internet, it's been so long! I love the sound of the Sunday Riley oil but I can't believe how much it is! It would have to be something pretty special to warrant that price tag! x

  3. I love the idea of a Beauty Wish List, I just think it would keep growing throughout the year until it's too long ha! I agree the No.7 range is so underrated, I use quite a few of there products which are now staples in my daily routine.

  4. The Becca highlighter looks gorgeous! If you're looking for something a bit cheaper, No7 make a really nice cream highlighter in crayon form called Instant Radiance - it's so easy to use, and it looks so pretty :) xx

  8. @Velvet Blush It is really good, I've had a few things from No.7 that I've liked but I sometimes forget to look there as you don't really hear much about it! x
