September Wish List: The High End Beauty Edit

This is most definitely a dream wish list…I’m forever falling in love with new beauty products, who isn’t?! I love using drugstore products for my everyday makeup looks; there really are some amazing drugstore beauty products out there! I definitely spend far too much of time perusing the aisles of Boots. However, there is nothing quite like high end beauty products. Sometimes, you just have to splurge on a few luxury beauty items.  I blame the incredible beauty looks that featured on the runways of London Fashion Week for contributing to my lust for high end products this month:

Burberry- Lip Cover in Ruby No.18- £22.50

Okay, how INCREDIBLE was the Burberry Prorsum SS15 show at LFW? It was the most beautiful runway show. The colours, the prints, the theme of ‘The Birds and The Bees’ that beautiful makeup look, Cara and Kate arriving together … ah it was absolute perfection. I need to have a monogramed Bee Bag in my life (I wish). I love Burberry. Christopher Bailey is a genius. After watching Vivianna Does Makeup’s Burberry video, I definitely felt inspired to try Wendy Rowe’s flawless makeup look and be bold with a gorgeous red lip. I have to be honest,  I don’t think I actually own a red lipstick (I know, shock!). I just have never felt bold enough for a red lip. but I think it’s time to be daring and embrace the red lip. Burberry’s Lip Cover in Ruby was the lipstick of choice on the Burberry Runway and it is definitely a gorgeous, vibrant red. I love the packaging also with its homage to the iconic Burberry check print
Charlotte Tilbury- Matte Revolution in Glastonberry- £23.00
I love matte lipsticks. I love berry colours. I love rose-gold packaging. I love the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks. There have been so many glowing reviews in the blogging world about these lipsticks and it’s easy to see why. These are matte lipsticks with a difference enriched with oils to help hydrate lips and with 3D glowing pigments that makes lips appear fuller. This is the perfect lipstick for the perfect pout. All the shades in this collection are beautiful, but I especially love Glastonberry, it is described as a ‘sheer blackberry hue’. I love purple hues for autumn, so after deciding to be bolder with my lipstick this season, I have fallen in love with this lipstick.

BY TERRY- Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon- £28.00

Okay, so I know that I have well and truly missed the bandwagon with BY TERRY’s Ombre Blackstar. The beauty world loves this product and I have been lusting after it for a while.  I love the easy to use pen applicator and how creamy the eyeshadow is. The shades are super pigmented and come in a variety of gorgeous colours. I love all the colours, but I’m especially lusting after Bronze Moon. Ombre Blackstar really is the ultimate eyeshadow product.

Charlotte Tilbury- Filmstar Bronze and Glow- £49.00
Contouring and highlighting is one of my favourite makeup techniques. It really makes so much difference to your facial features. So, I’m always on the look out for new highlighters and bronzers. Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow looks like the perfect contour kit. The highlighter looks incredible: a gorgeous golden-champagne colour, perfect for creating that illuminating glow. The bronze shade compliments the highlight perfectly. Also, the packaging is 1920s inspired and is beautiful. I could definitely imagine this product in Daisy Buchanan’s makeup collection! 

What beauty products are you lusting after this month?
