The Autumn Lust List

Tuesday, 8 September 2015

It's no secret that I'm really excited for Autumn/Winter this year, so much so that I actually had to stop myself buying Christmas bedding in Primark yesterday - it is only September after all. Whilst I love London in the Summer, there's so many exciting things London has in store for winter - skating at Somerset House, Winter Wonderland, pretty fairy lights in the trees, etc so I'm sure you can see why I'm so looking forward to it! I'm not quite ready to start rocking A/W makeup looks yet, and after my 'moving house' clear out I don't own too many Autumn appropriate colours, so I thought I would put a little wish list together to kick the season off and maybe inspire you to create some beautiful A/W looks. 

Nars Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himilia - I love a shimmery eyeshadow so it's no wonder this offering from Nars has made it's way onto my lust list for this season. Now I have a limited amount of time in the mornings to do my makeup I often look for 'one wash wonder' colours for my eyes, because I really don't have time for shading and blending at 6am, and this shade from Nars looks like it would work wonderfully on it's own as an everyday colour. 

Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette - Sticking to the eyeshadow theme, I'd also love to get my mitts on the latest 'naked' instalment by Urban Decay. When I first saw this palette I wasn't too fussed, but now the weather has started to get colder I can see that I really do *need* this in my collection. 

Dior Marsala Nail Polish - Marsala is set to be the it colour this Autumn, and whist it's not a colour I'd really pick for my makeup, my nails can definitely be on trend. I adore this shade of marsala from Dior as it's more of a pinky burgundy colour and would work really well for everyday. 

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb - Okay, so this is probably more of an 'all year' product, but most of my fragrances are overtly summery, so I really am in need of a more autumn appropriate fragrance, right? This one may be a little pricy but it's one of the only scents which actually last on my skin and I love the sweet flowery smell of this fragrance. 

Philosophy French Vanilla Bean Shower Gel - When the nights get colder there's nothing I love more than curling up in bed after a hot shower, and as I find the smell of vanilla extremely relaxing and comforting, I had to pop this on my wish list. I'll probably never get round to purchasing this as I can't bear to spend that much on a shower gel, but if I were to treat myself (as if I don't do that enough already!) then this would definitely be up there. 

Nars Blush in Deep Throat - Oh Nars, you and your naught names! Childish giggles aside, this really is a beautiful colour. The rosy peach shade would be perfect for autumn and the rosy glow it creates is beautifully natural, so this would be perfect for everyday wear. 

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream - I don't know about you, but my eyes really suffer in the winter. My dark circles and puffiness take on a life of their own, probably due to having to wake up when it's still dark and cold, so I definitely need to invest in a good eye cream to combat this. I've tried a couple of samples of this so I already know I love it, I just need to remember to pick it up next time I'm at a Benefit counter! 

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream - When the weather gets colder, you skin really suffers so it's important to protect it. I've heard wonderful things about this moisturiser from Kiehl's and so far I've loved everything I've tried from the brand. 

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation - I'm currently really unhappy with all of the base products I own and am on a hunt for the perfect foundation. I've recently been hearing a lot of great things about the newly launched Magic Foundation from Charlotte Tilbury, so I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before I pick one up!

Bobbi Brown Corrector & Concealer Palette - Like I said, my eyes really suffer in the autumn and winter months, so I definitely need something heavy duty to brighten and conceal the area. I've heard wonderful things about Bobbi Brown concealers, so I will definitely be heading to a counter soon to check them out. 

Which products are you lusting after for Autumn?

Lots of Love,
