10 Things I Plan on Purchasing in January

month
I should be saving, I should technically be at the gym too and yet here I am mindlessly trawling the internet in the quest for pretty things to call my own – I mean there’s no harm in looking now is there?

1, After much deliberation and continuous use of my original Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette, I have decided that I am going to make the smart investment in the Charlotte Tilbury Look in a Palette in Seductive Beauty. The peachy blushes and neutral yet cool toned eyeshadows (the original palette features pink and warm toned products) really call me and I know for a fact that it will be used and loved making it that little easier to justify.

2, I’ve also very much set my sights on finally owning the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Kim K.W, admittedly it is a rather pale nude but I do think it will be the perfect partner to a smoky eye look and after swatching it in-store, I am convinced that I will be able to make it work for me.

3, Slowly but surely I have amassed a good number of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors but one shade missing from my collection is Champagne Pop. Initially I wrote it off as being too golden for my skin tone and needs but after “borrowing” my sister’s compact, I am fully converted – especially when tanned. Yes this is a yellow toned and altogether bold highlighting choice but in the right hands, it is utterly beautiful – sure I might reserve this for the Summer months and maybe evening wear but I do think that this is one product entirely worthy of the hype surrounding it.

4, I don’t know if I have missed the boat for the Too Faced Peach Glow Face Palette but isn’t it beautiful? A highlighter, a blush and a bronzer, all in one dinky palette. It is currently available via Sephora so I’m hopeful that it is a case of just being patient and waiting for the palette reaching the UK.

5, As we are nearly approaching the Spring season, you’ll excuse my desire to find a new and altogether fresh and more seasonably appropriate fragrance. At the moment I am very much enjoying the warm and rich tones of Aerin Tangier Vanille Eau de Parfum which is ideal for the abysmal Winter weather we are currently having. The great thing about Aerin fragrances is that not everyone is aware the brand exists, meaning you won’t have the same signature scent as every female in the office – we’ve all been there. If I could add one more bottle to my small but perfectly formed Aerin stash, it would be Aerin Gardenia Rattan – it is fresh, floral and yet not at all stuffy.

6, I have went from absolutely loathing Coriander to actively seeking it out – in my opinion it can really make or break a good taco. Anyway my love for the herb now extents to home fragrance and for all those Taco Tuesday nights, I am hoping to purchase a Diptyque Coriandre Candle – tell me that doesn’t sound dreamy? Margarita’s optional of course.

7, Over the festive period I indulged in far too many sweet treats and as a result my skin is now really making me pay for all those overindulgences and midnight feasts. Typically I would slap on a light layer of Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Mask and allow it to work its magic but I will damned if I can find my admittedly well used tube anywhere. The great thing about this mask is that during really troublesome skin spells it can be used as a cleanser. I must re-purchase ASAP!

8, When you have flimsy, poker straight lashes a great mascara isn’t all that easy to come by – some formulations are too heavy, others flake, smudge and generally aren’t worth mentioning. I have recently just discovered Bobbi Brown Smoky Lash Mascara – albeit in mini form via a Christmas value set, and man am I smitten. It plumps, extends and really frames the eyes with little to no effort on my part – not to mention in layers on beautifully without clumping if a dramatic look is what you crave. Yes I will be purchasing a full sized tube any day now and with zero qualms.

9, Bare Minerals have really won me over in the last few months with their new and innovative launches (seriously if you have yet to try out Bare Minerals Rescue Balm you are seriously missing out) with means I have nothing but blind faith in their new skin care launches – Bare Minerals Correctives. At this point, I’m not entirely sure which of the five products out of the line up, I will be purchasing but a serum will be mine before the month is over.

10, Lastly, another re-purchase or re-stock by another name – NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser. This delightful, light yet moderate coverage base is the perfect choice for when the warmer days finally roll back around, not to mention it helps inject a little much needed moisture to Winter parched skin.
