Wishlist: Beauty Edition #2

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - Dry skin is something I've always suffered with. It hasn't been too bad recently since I've been using the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (review here) but from time to time I do get horrible dry patches around and on my nose and also on my chin. I've heard a lot about this mask and I think that it would really help my skin to include this in my skincare routine a couple of times a week.

YSL Blush Radiance - At £31, I don't think that this blusher is something that I'll be picking up in the near future. The only reason why I want it is because of the colour - I desperately want a lilac blusher and this is the only one that I've been able to find. If I could find a cheaper alternative, I'd obviously want that more. Although, obviously you get what you pay for and my YSL lipstick is one of my favourites so I'm sure that this is worth the money. If anyone knows of any other (cheaper) lilac blushers, please let me know!

Lancôme Teint Idole 24h - Both of my foundations are running out at the moment (Estée Lauder Double Wear and Bourjois Healthy Mix) so I'm looking for a replacement for them both. I think it's a good idea to have both a high end and a high street foundation on the go at once. I tend to use the cheaper one for everyday/work and the high end one for going out/important occasions such as job interviews. My friend Hera recommended this foundation to me so I picked up a sample from Debenhams last week. As well as having a gorgeous floral smell (which a lot of people probably won't like) and being non comedogenic, this foundation offers a medium to high coverage which is completely buildable and it covers all my imperfections just as good as the Double Wear, without feeling quite so heavy. I'm going to get another sample in a different shade and carry on testing this out before I commit to buying it but I think this might be my next high end foundation purchase!

Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It - This is a product which I've been repurchasing for over 7 years now and it's a staple in my skincare routine. It's a two-in-one product and can be used as both a scrub and a mask. I usually use it once a week by massaging it into my face for a few seconds and then leaving it on for five minutes or so while I'm in the bath. I find that when I don't use it, my face gets really congested and I end up getting a bit spotty. My current tube is almost empty so I definitely need to buy this again soon.

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Instant Nail Hardener - I think it's the years of applying nail polish and then taking it off again and also the use of fake nails but the state of my nails at the moment is atrocious. They're thin and start to peel whenever my nail polish chips off. Also, disgustingly, I like to rip the ends of my nails off. It's something that I used to do when I was nervous but now it's just become a habit. I know that if my nails were just a bit stronger then I wouldn't be able to do this, which is where this product comes in! I've seen a lot of good reviews and I have a lot of god experience with Sally Hansen products so I'd really like to give this a go and see if it helps.

Have you used any of the products in my wishlist? What are you currently lusting after?


  1. My nails are exactly the same so I'm definitely going to have to try the Nail Hardener! Oooh gotta love Soap & Glory x

  2. I highly recommend the Origins Drink up Mask. It's so good! I use it on long haul flights as well!

    Also, have you tried the OPI Nail envy? I highly recommend that to strengthen and sort our nails :)
