Summer Lush List

Untitled #6

The sun is FINALLY making an appearance and I couldn’t be happier!
I love preparing for this season, I change up everything, my clothes, my hair and even my make up!
My latest list contains some of the beauty items I’ve been luring after for summer.

Melt Cosmetics – The matte lipstick brand created by Instagram star now turned Riri’s MUA Lora. Her and her partner in crime Dana have created a small but eye catching range of matte lipstick that I have been lusting over for some time now. 
I have my eye on DGAF, Blow and Shady Lady right now. The only thing putting me off is the shipping, but for these gorgeous lippies I’ll just have to bite the bullet!

NARS Contour Blush in Geniah –  This is a product that NARS is due to release very soon! A contour duo with a lighter and darker shade to provide a more natural contour. I think it’s a fab idea and Geniah really looks like a great shade for WoC. As it yet to be released feel free to grab some info regarding this duo from Temptalia

A La Carte London  Bespoke Foundation –  There is something about having your own bespoke foundation that fills me with  unexplained glee!

A La Carte offer bespoke make up for products such as lip glosses, lipstick and eye shadows but my eye is on the foundation.

A perfect match?! Yes please! 

Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette – After seeing this post I realised I needed a this palette in my life. I think matte yellows look amazing on darker skin tones and would really love to experiment with all the colours including the ever famous Poison Plum.

MAC Eye Shadow Palette – For the first time, a few weeks ago I went into MAC and swatched some of their eye shadows…this was a bad idea as I fell in love immediately! Initially I wanted to pick up the Warm Neutral palette when it landed but it wouldn’t contain all the shades I wanted so I guess this summer I’ll start creating my own MAC palette. 

Very excited…bank account is not!

Charlotte Tilbury The Perfect Vamp Kiss –  You guys already know about my lust over Charlotte’s make up range. This kit looks perfect for me, the focus is on creating the perfect vamp lip, but wow, is this pricey! 

Alas, the heart wants what it wants!

Make Up Geek Pigments – I already have a few MUG products that I have found outstanding so I know these pigments will fit the bill.

These pigments come in a gorgeous array of shades and are heavenly pigmented. You can tell the MUG team put a lot of work into their products which is something I really love in a brand!

La Femme Blush Palette –  I’m not sure why I do not have a La Femme blush palette in my possession yet! From what I’ve seen La Femme blushers are pigmented, long wearing and fantastic in price with many shades that suit WoC. This is a must have, that I MUST HAVE!

MAC Lip Mix in Crimson – You can blame NikkieTutorials for this one, check out the AMAZING red lip she created with Crimson and Riri Woo. I’ve been obsessed with adding Crimson to my collection ever since. A MAC Pro product but worth the extra effort in my opinion!

What’s on your summer make up wish list?

    Urgh, I really want to get my hands on some Melt Cosmetic lipsticks as well! They look so pigmented and not too chalky like Limecrime lipsticks! Also, the Naked 3 Palette is a wish of mine, but my bank account won't allow it!

      I know! I really want the Melt lipsticks, been dreaming about them ever since I first saw them! I wanted the first Naked Palette for ages, managed to convince a family member to buy it for me for my birthday! Maybe you can do the same! 😉 x
