I recently got a nice gift voucher from House Of Fraser due to a promotion than ran with O2. What better way to decide how to spend it than to create a wishlist! So, I thought I would share it with you!
Here are some of the things that have made my wishlist, I still have no idea what I’m actually buying yet, these are just ideas and I may end up going to House Of Fraser rather than buying online. If you have any suggestions or have the things I have included on my wishlist, do share with me your opinions so I know if they are good buys or not.
Now the Urban Decay 24/7 pencils aren’t new on my wishlist. In fact they have also been on my Birthday Wishlist (Post Here), but when I went to get them they were out of stock. I wear liner EVERY DAY. Its probably up there with mascara for me and I don’t feel right without it. I still think this set is great value for money, 6 liners for £24 and they are very good quality. So, this time I am going to order them!
Now I do have a lot of fragrances, more than 1 person should normally have I admit. But I love to change it up during Summer and asked the Twitter community what they thought. The lovely Adrienne at TheSundayGirl and Kate (KateEM92) told me I had to try Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess. They were actually the forth ladies to say to me about it. So, I this is on my list as apparently, ‘Its Summer in a bottle’ which sounds just about perfect to me!
So, so, so pretty…. The new MAC Alluring Aquatics collection in my opinion was nice, but I didn’t want to buy it all. However, the Extra Dimension Bronzer is gorgeous! Aphrodite’s Shell is the most beautiful gold bronze and I just know it is going to look amazing on the skin. I love that MAC products last and know this definitely needs a place in my collection.
I don’t remember where I first heard about the NARS Translucent Setting Powder, it was probably a guru on YouTube. Still, its been on my list a long time. I have A LOT of setting powders and with them lasting so long haven’t been able to justify splurging on a new one when I don’t really need it (Hence it makes the list when I have a gift voucher!). I like that this isn’t a flat matte and light reflecting. I hate being matte in Summer but also don’t like that greasy/oily shine.
Now I have always said one of my favourite tans is Vita Liberata Phenomenal tan (Review here) and think its amazing. While have a browse of the new products I came upon the Capture the Light range. It looks amazing, sounds amazing and I think I DEFINITELY am going to have to buy some!
Surprisingly I don’t own that many Benefit products. I find shopping at Benefit counters daunting and always spend more than I want or buy things there I don’t really need (The ladies are good at what they do!), so tend to shop online more. I love this cheek & lip kit. I adore Posie Tint and wear it almost daily and know Cha Cha Tint looks amazing. I ran out of High Beam too, so this kit would be a great introduction to some other products plus its all in a neat little kit!
For those of you who follow my blog you will know lately I’ve gotten right into my vibrant red/orange lips. Its the perfect shade for summer, looks amazing with a tan or if you are pale skinned and is definitely eye catching. I have seen several US gurus use these recently and they look amazing! I love matte products and the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil from Nars certainly look like they would be something I would love. I chose Red Square as its a beautiful bright orange/red.
Its Tom ford, do I need to say more? I would NEVER spend £34 on a mascara, I think the most I have spent was £25 on a Chanel one. But, yes it is Tom Ford… <lets out a little sigh>. Its elegant, beautiful and well I would probably love it even if it only gave me 1 eye lash! I’ve heard some good things about the Ultra Full Length mascara and as you may know, I love a bit of length to my lashes.
Isn’t she lovely…. Isn’t she beautifullllll. Yes The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Beige is summer in a palette for me. I love how these have multiple uses and could create so many different things with this palette. Although I also admit it would probably be kept in a glass case and never used as I wouldn’t want to mess it up. I love this Shimmer Brick though and although Bronze is really lovely, I would have to buy it in Beige as I think it would suit me better.
Normally I wouldn’t pop 2 fragrances on the same wishlist. But this sounds like me in a bottle, I adore Vanilla fragrances and there isn’t many I dislike. The only reason I have not purchased it is because I always try a fragrance being purchasing and I have NEVER seen Jo Malone fragrances in stores. I just wish I could get a sample of this to try so I would know if it were for me or not. I’d order it in a heart beat then if I liked it!
Hmm, so that’s my short list of Wishlist items for House of Fraser. Seeing as it goes WELL OVER my limit on my gift card I am definitely going to have to have a think about what I want more, as let’s be honest I don’t really need anything on this list! Its just nice to be able to buy a few high-end things for a change to add to my collection.
If you have any recommendations you think I should add to my wishlist, please drop me a comment. I’m also looking for that perfect Summer scent too, so suggestions would be great. I like them sweet, summery and new!
Lots of Love,
