April’s Wish List

Hourglass Modernist Palette in Infinity – Would you just look at that! This beautiful artist-inspired eyeshaddow palette contains a seamless colour transition of beautiful taupe and bronze shades. Each palette contains five richly pigmented shades in a range of finishes from matte to shimmer. Really I’d love to have one of each shade range… But Infinity really floats my boat.

The Shine Brush – The Wet Brush – The ultimate mane saving tool, this brush effortlessly detangles dry or wet hair without stretching or breaking. Apparently, the long ball-tipped bristles are ideal for stimulating circulation near the scalp, to better feed your follicles and encourage new growth, and… the ‘Mongolian Boar’ bristles help deliver a lustrous polish. I’m desperate for a new brush and… this is it.

Laura Mercier Silk Créme Moisturising Photo Edition Foundation – Now I’m very aware that I don’t need another foundation in my life. But I’ve read so many rave reviews about this one that it just needs to be mine. This photo-ready foundation creates a flawless, long-wearing canvas with a natural luminous finish. The photo-ready, natural luminous finish is ideal for video, photography and special events. Perfect for graduation I think!

Bobbi Brown Eye Blender Brush – This award winning brush is the top of my ‘brush’ wish list. It expertly blends all eyeshadows together, softening any harsh lines and edges. The nature of this brush means it can also be used to set concealer. Plus it may just be the softest thing that I have ever felt, I can often be found swirling it over my hands at a Bobbi Brown counter… just for the very fun of it.

Charlotte Tilbury Rock’n’Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil in Eye Cheat – Inspired by the ultimate, rock chick ‘bedroom eyes’, Charlotte Tilbury has created a revolutionary, no-nonsense liquid-eye pencil: it has the silky smooth glide of a liquid liner with the soft, sooty, pigment-rich result of a kohl. The Eye Cheat shade is the perfect nude eye brightener to be used in the inner waterline to widen and enliven the eyes.

Whistles Sekka Stripe Drape Top – Featuring a high collar rounded neck and sculpted arm sleeves, this asymmetric top is perfect for a standout monochrome look. I love the pattern and draping involved in this piece and would love to add it to my wardrobe. A girl can dream.

Wallis Berry Leather Shoe Boot – Please can someone tell me where I can find these boots in stock?! PLEASE. Sold out everywhere and my heart breaks a little bit each time I visit a wallis store and they aren’t there. This shoe boot has an asymmetric cut which is sexy and flattering on the foot. In mixed materials of suede and leather in this seasons must have colour berry, these shoes are a gorgeous finishing touch to an evening look. I need these in my life.

Chloe Clare Medium Leather Shoulder Bag in Marshmallow Grey – Clare Waight Keller’s signature namesake bag has had a compact makeover with this tri-tone style. Still sleek and practical, this smooth and textured navy and grey leather piece is perfect. Perfect for me.

The Charlotte Tilbury Edit

I’ve become obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury and her absolutely stunning YouTube videos – so it was no surprise when I fell in love with her range of beauty products. The branding is sleek with rose gold highlights, sharp lines, and beautifully rich colours; soft, subtle pinks, gentle corals, deep browns, strong metallics, and bold reds.

After seeing the effect Charlotte’s Magic Cream has in her videos, I am convinced I need this cream in my life. A “break-through, multi-tasking” product that protects, hydrates, restores, transforms, and creates a plump, dewy, youthful appearance. The Dolce Vita palette is absolutely stunning with four neutral yet powerful shades that can be worn in so many ways. The Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop First Love Blusher is a soft, natural blusher that gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks and Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Scult & Highlight provides the ideal contouring tool that appears to suit even pale complexions. Penelope Pink is a honey-pink shade that enhances the natural colour of the lips, while Lip Lustra Hall of Fame Lipgloss is a glossy, baby pink shade perfect for layering over lipsticks or wearing alone for a wash of colour.
