My beauty wishlist

Monday, 1 July 2013

I thought I would share my beauty wishlist with you all, if you had any idea how obsessed I am with making my must-have lists while browsing my favourite online stores you would be slightly shocked :) 

Most of these brands are ones that I know pretty well and have used over the years. The below are some new launches from them that I am dying to get my hands on!

Cane & Austin Retexturizing Treatment Pads
These are glycolic exfoliating pads that can be used at home on a daily basis. I haven't tried this brand yet, but have read some really nice reviews and like the sound of this one.
Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer
I actually am not sure if this is new or not but make up artists rave about it and I definitely need some during these winter months! In reviews people speak of using this in the same way that they use Soleil tan de Chanel - as a base for your foundation.
African Botanics Pure Marula Oil
This looks heavenly. Also a brand I haven't tried and not the BIGGEST fan of oils (they make me feel greasy and dirty), but I could see myself trying this one out. You can read about how I've found Kiehl's MRC oil here.
Becca Beach Tint
I love this brand and these beach tints are so popular! They are lip and cheek tints essentially,  but are said to apply brilliantly and stay put without looking patchy or dry. They also seem to be sold out just about everywhere which obviously makes me want them more :) I have been using Stila's Colour Convertible and will pop that review up tomorrow - so far so good!
Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer
I've used their standard tinted moisturiser for years and would love to try this. It look amazing for the beach. Chantecaille's products are so beautiful to use so can only imagine what this one is like!
Stila After Glow Lip Colour
This just looks like a fun product that I'd like to try out. Essentially the lip product has florescent pigments that are three times brighter than conventional colours, creating a vibrant pop of colour in the sunlight. Once the sun goes down, black light sensitive pigments cause the product to glow when exposed to UV light. Interesting hey!
NARS Limited Edition Pierre Hardy Blush Palette
This palette was inspired by the designers 2013 shoe collection. I love the coral pink with a gold shimmer pattern in it!

Sai-Sei Mineral Deep Moisture Body Cream
I love the sound of this Japanese brands body cream. It combines essential minerals from ancient Japanese hot springs with Uji Green Tea and Rice Bran as well as Tsubaki Oil and Squalene to lock in moisture. Really don’t know what half those ingredients do, but they sound rather luxurious!

Stila Countless Colour Pigment
This are only a few of the colour pigments but I love the combinations. The pigment is strong and everyone seems to be going mad about them. Can't wait til they hit SA!
Korres Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial
Ah this sounds heavenly, especially coming from a Greek brand. I love Korres' stuff and need to get my hands on this - it would be great for an over-night treatment.
Vita Liberata 2-3 Week Tan
This sounds phenomenal - the tan mousse lasts for a good 2-3 weeks, how cool is that!? Although can't quite understand how that would work with the skin shedding cycle etc, but no one's complaining!


All products can be purchased on Space NK, Mecca Cosmetica, John Lewis, Sephora or Selfridges.

  1. Did you know that there is a Becca store in Morningside Johannesburg? I was thrilled last year when I found out and ran to get the beach tints - watermelon is my fave :)
