Christmas may have only been recently but that’s not going to stop me from planning purchases and drooling over exciting launches both old and new, how about you? I love a good wishlist post, I find them fun to read and write and I’m also insatiably nosy so if you’re anything like me you’ll love knowing what everyone else is looking at! Here’s ten face products that have made it onto my radar…
1 – Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Lychee/Opal £22.00 (SpaceNK)
Sadly I think this has been discontinued which means I’ll never be able to experience that luminous flush of colour on my cheeks that I spotted all over the internet. Having said that I’ll save £22.00 so you know… I can’t find this on the SpaceNK website and it wasn’t in store but who knows, this could come back in the summertime and maybe then I’ll get in board and buy it!
2 – Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Prismatic Amethyst £32.00 (Cult Beauty)
I’m a huge fan of frosty, icy toned highlighters so this lilac highlighter looks right up my street. I’ve wanted to try Bceca highlighters for a while since everyone keeps raving about them but I find that there’s so many champagne toned highlighters out there that I just don’t get excited by the shades. This is different though I’m not sure if I’d be able to wear it to work!
3 – Benefit Gogo Tint Lip and Cheek Stain £25.50 (Boots)
Just before Christmas Benefit released a few new launches including the Dandelion Twinkle Highlighting Powder and the Benefit Gogo Tint Lip and Cheek Stain. I was surprised to see that neither product seemed to get much coverage on beauty blogs, maybe people are a bit over Benefit? I’ll admit I didn’t like Benetint or Posietint on the lips but on the cheeks both were lovely to use so I’m intrigued by this new cherry toned offering.
4 – Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation £10.99 (Boots)
I’ve not tried masses of Bourjois products but I’ll admit that what I have tried I really like. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation so I’m keen to give it a try. I have noticed that a lot of their shades lean towards the yellow side but as someone with pale yet sallow skin I think I’ll be fine.
5 – MAC Prep and Prime Fix Plus £18.00 (maccosmetics.co.uk)
I’ve heard a million and one great things about MAC Fix Plus so I definitely need to get my hands on some. My skin is combination so I do have a lot of dryness but oil control on my t-zone and chin is a pain so I’d welcome a product that could make my base stay on for longer. I’d probably start with the original but I’ll admit, as a fan of coconut I’d probably like that version too.
6 – MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15 £18.00 (maccosmetics.co.uk)
Granted, £18 isn’t cheap for a concealer but I tried this in store and holy hell this had major coverage. I’ve used the Collection concealer for years but I’m trying to branch out into other formulations. I’m not sure if the MAC would be good or bad under the eyes but I think it would be great for redness and blemishes.
7 – Maybelline Master Fixer Powder 01 Translucent £8.99 (superdrug.com)
I saw EmmyTalksBeauty rave about this product which makes me intrigue. One of the huge selling points for me is that she said it had a soft focus and that it really helped to blur the skin. As someone with texture and pores, a blurring product sounds wonderful! I’m also yet to try a loose powder so this seems like a great place to start!
8 – Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in Shade 13 £11.00 (iherb)
A friend tried this BB Cream on me a while ago and my skin looked absolutely amazing once she’d finished with it. I’ve had this on my wishlist for such a long time but I’ve never bought it, mainly because I don’t tend to do online shopping much. This is one of those products that I really want to get though just to see how it is long-term for my skin.
9 – Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer £15.00 (Cultbeauty.co.uk)
I’m sure by now you wil have all heard of this cult primer that’s doing the round of beauty blogs. If not, this is apparently a fantastic primer that really does help to fill in and blur the pores which is exactly what I need when my skin is at it’s oiliest! I do love a good silicone primer so I think I’d get on with this.
10 – Urban Decay Naked BB Bronzing Balm £23.50 (Urban Decay)
I’m not sure if this is about to be discontinued because it’s out of stock on Debenhams plus it’s reduced on the official Urban Decay website. I tried a sample of this a while ago and didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. Personally, I like this for contouring. Despite being a liquid it’s extremely easy to use and it blends out flawlessly, definitely one I need to pick up!
