The Colder Months Skin & Makeup Wishlist

Happy haloweeeeeen....

Spooky scary skeletons. How's everyone? Yikes...it's been a while hasn't it? I have been all over the place, first to Disneyland Paris and then on hols to Alton Towers. I LOVED both, especially Alton Towers...if you're not scared shitless at a theme park, you're not having a good time.

I'm fifteen in 6 days (!) and I've asked for money and bits and bobs for my birthday. Money means spending, and considering it's reaching the months where we need to give extra care to our skin & shimmy up our makeup bag a bit, I thought a wishlist should be on the cards...and when my memory card decided to say no-no (grr) it was the perfect time.

Winter Makeup

Clinique Smart Custom Serum is INCREDIBLE. I've tried a few of the sachet samples and honestly, it makes my skin feel phenomenal. I literally cannot hype about this enough, everything apart from one thing about it is sensational. Wanna know what that one thing is? The £50-£70 price tag. Goodbye.

When my Liz Earle number finishes (which is good, but really not that amazing) I'm on the hunt for the Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm. It sounds so lovely, and as I have dry skin, a balm would be perfect for me. It doesn't break the bank if you're willing to spend a bit more on your skin, so why not give it a try?

Origins Gin Zing Moisturiser is one I've had my eye on for a looong time, and I just would love to give it a go. I have such dull skin, so this really sounds like it floats my boat, and it smells of Terrys Chocolate Orange. Terrys Chocolate Orange. Enough Said.

I previously owned the Botanics Hydrating Day Cream, and in my review I expressed how much I adored it. I just need it in my life again, and can't wait till I can pick it up. It's so amazing, making you look awake, healthy and your skin feels so soft it's unreal...

With my so-dry-its-decintergrating skin, the hype around the Hydraluron Moisture Booster has been drawing me in for a crazy long time. I love serums overall, and this is really something that I can't keep my eyes off. The idea of locking in more moisture without being tacky or heavy on my skin (it sinks in instantly apparently) is just too much...


Winter Makeup

NARS Sheer Glow is a foundation that's pretty much a religion. Everyone follows it, everyone loves it, and no-one dares offend it. I've had it put on me at a NARS counter, and didn't think that much of it, but she used a sponge and gave me such light coverage I refuse to believe it's not my thing, as it makes people look so amazing on YouTube.

MAC Soft & Gentle is so gorgeous and just the kind of thing I need. Right now. With shimmery shades of bronzey goodness, I'd love to just grab it and shmeeer it all over my little teenage face,

The NAKED palettes are well loved aren't they? Blimey. I've seen em all and conclude that the first one is me fav. Neutral gorgeousness all in a line isn't something worth arguing for...and that pigmentation...more phorar than Erik Durm (click to ozze in a new tab)...

I've got a sample of the famous MAC Strobe Liquid and to be frank, it's stunning. I mix it with a foundation (usually my sample of Studio Sculpt as that comes up fairly matte on me?) and it gives such a gorgeous glow. I especially love it because of the neutral undertone- it's not friends with the Benefit highlighters because they're either very pink or very yellow. This bad boy likes to sit on the fence.

The YSL Touche Eclat is on everyone's wishlist at some point. Look at it. The gold pen of face dimension is just wince worthy. Apparently there's a good dupe in Aldi for a fraction of the price though...let me know if you've tried it guys.

What's on your wishlist?
