USA Wishlist - The Count Down.

Ladies and Gentleman, we are finally here. It is nearly 5 days until we jet off and I cannot explain how excited I am. I apologise in advance for the constant Twitter updates of how excited I am  and all the things I'm doing to prepare.
There are few last things I would love to pick up and here they are. I also would LOVE to know what you guys would recommend I check out whilst I'm there.
First up, we have pretty much 90% of the Anastasia Beverly Hills range..
I already mentioned that I want some brow products but I am desperately after they're lip product and they're all the nudes. I am so obsessed with them and I haven't even swatched them!

I'm hoping to get these from Macy's as I think that there is a stand there and I'm seriously hoping that some of the lip products are there.
So this is the Marc Jacobs #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour powder and I feel like its everywhere at minute. It is a palette that consists of a light highlight shade and a dark contour shade and its supposed to make your skin look flawless in photos due it is light filtering pigments. Sounds pretty snazzy if you ask me so thats why i'm very tempted to purchase it. 
The Light Filtering palette isn't the only thing I'm keen to check out - these little palettes of three shadows are so cute, I really like 'The Escapist' 120. It has a pink champagne frost, a matte deep aubergine and a matte lilac grey. Very pretty colours and different to my usual browns!

Then we have more lip products... the Too Faced Liquid Lipsticks have been on my wishlist for so long and they are £19 over here but $21 over there which means that i'll be saving a little bit of money which i'm sure everyone loves right? But in all fairness, I have wanted these for so long and I felt like this will be my chance!

As always, please let me know if you have any American favourites that I need to pick up whilst I'm out there!

Yves Rocher Summer Range

Summer is coming and what better way to get ready than with the new collection from Yves Rocher. If you've heard of Yves Rocher, then you would know that it is the number one selling makeup and skincare brand in France.
This range has four items in, starting with the Rinising Vinegar  (RRP £11.30). Now, you're probably questioning why on earth you would put vinegar on your hair but this formula eleminates limescale and mineral build up in your hair so after being used during your last rinsing, it leaves your hair fresh and ultra shiny. Can also add, it smells AMAZING. Next is the Delicate Cleansing Cream (RRP £6.90) for your hair. This is a non-foaming formula which protects the integrity of the hair fibre leaving it clean, soft and silky. Both of these products are silicone, paraben and sulphate free and composed of 98% natural ingredients.
The Lagoon Hair & Body Wash (RRP £3.20) is beautifully scented and contains organic Aloe so its gentle enough to be used on your hair. As it's a hair and body wash, its perfect to take on holiday for space saving!
Last but of course not least, my favourite product in the range, the Moni Precious Dry Oil (RRP £14.90). This is a non-greasy oil, that moisturises the skin whilst giving it a beautiful summer glow from the gold shimmer. It's perfect for straight after a day in the sunshine to enhance a tan and moisturise the dryness that the sun can bring. 

What are your summer must have's?

Italy Part Two.

Soooooo I vlogged Italy! I have attempted vlogging once or twice but always failed so this time I was determined to have some decent enough footage to create a video. Its definitely not perfect, the cobbles were hard enough to walk on, let alone holding a camera at the same time but I did it. 

Next is Florida...

Chanel Blusher in 64 Pink Explosion

Coco Chanel once said "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different", which is why I chose one of the most daring shades in the blusher collection when I bought this the other day in London.
This is the prettiest blush I own, purely because it has fine glitter in it too. If I was going to buy Chanel, I was going to go all out in the process because, well why not?!
There is one problem with buy Chanel.. once you own a piece of Chanel, you don't want to stop. Matt bought me a lipgloss from Chanel in 144 at Christmas which is so close to the same colour so its strange that I picked the same colour but now I want more and I can't stop!
I love everything about Chanel cosmetics, from the packaging where it has a little velvet bag to keep it in to the amount of products you actually get. This was £31 which I know is a little steep for a blush but its Chanel and you are paying for the brand name swell as the product. It don't regret it though! I am truly excited to have this in my collection and this definitely will not be the last product. If anyone is wondering, I'm not loaded, my birthday was recently and I decided as a birthday treat that I was going to buy something special.
I think that next, I definitely want to buy some Chanel foundation as I've heard that the Vitalumière Aqua is beautiful and as the summer months are coming up, ill be looking for lighter foundation. 

So, what do you think?! I love it! 
Let me know in the comments below if you have any Chanel Makeup and what your favourite thing is.

Lipstick - The Nudes

So I know nudes aren't to some peoples tastes but I am a nude lip girl through and through. Nude to me, doesn't just mean my lips but better. I class anything from a beige tone to a light pink as a nude, maybe I shouldn't but I see it as something plain and subtle can be classed as a nude. This post is mostly about the photos (as you can already tell) as I was playing around one day and bunched up all of my favourite nude lipsticks and thought hey, why not share?! I got all pro with the camera focus and before you know it, I was getting somewhere!

So, this is some of my top nudes, for left to right:
Rimmel London 206 Nude Pink
MAC LE Kiss The King
MAC Japanese Maple
Rimmel London 006 Pink Blush
Lime Crime Babette
YSL Rouge Volupté Number 1 Nude Beige 
Milani 26 Nude Creme
Rimmel London Kate Moss 08
MAC Viva Glam VI
MAC Politely Pink
L'Oreal Collection Privee By Cheryl

If you guys know any good nudes, I would love to know. I feel like lipstick can sometimes be super over whelming so I am welcoming the help!
Whats your favourite nude colour?

Boots Haul

So as you all know it was my birthday recently and I still had a Boots gift card from Christmas left over so when I walked past Boots the other day, I thought why not pop in and see whats around! Can I actually add, there is a lot of stuff going on at the drugstore but I was very restraint and only picked up the bits that were only really refills or things I really wanted to try. I picked up some new lashes because, well, can a girl really have too many pairs of lashes? I got these as they looked nice and fluttery, nothing too much which I prefer as I like to see what is going on behind the lashes. Whilst I was at it, I also bought some Duo Eyelash Adhesive as Im not a fan of clear glue, I prefer the dark stuff and I've heard the staying power of this stuff is insane! I actually used it that evening and I can confirm that my lashes were a devil to take off after 6 hour wear! 
Of course I stocked up on my holy grail foundation, L'Oreal True Match and on my Soap and Glory Archery Brow Tint and Pencil because they are my go to products and I had run so low on them. 
Whilst I was perusing the makeup stands, I noticed one of the new Max Factor CC sticks in pink for dark spots. I suffer from terrible under eye shadows that don't go no matter how much water, fruit or sleep I have so I thought instead of caking on the concealer, I would tackle the dark areas before I apply my makeup. I don't know how I feel about it just yet, It does come off pink but I don't know if I am keen about the texture yet as it seems a little oily/greasy when applied. I could be wrong so I'll play around with it a little more then i'll let you know. 
I know you are all seeing the Benefit They're Real Mascara but I wanted to create it's own post as I think it deserves it! That'll be coming up soon.

Are they anything highstreet products you've been loving lately?
