Midweek London Wish List!


By the time this post goes up I shall be swanning around London, Starbucks in hand, laden down with shopping bags with an empty bank account! We all do it - whether you're going to London or somewhere you know there's going to be a Sephora - those mental wish lists just keep growing and growing. I live in the middle of nowhere, it's a tiny little village in Leicestershire where the new Asda is the most exciting thing going on here so if I want a MAC fix or even a Boots I need to get myself into Nottingham or Leicester. The thought of Oxford street is already getting my heart racing!

I've seen enough blog posts about the new MAC pro store in Covent Garden so I definitely want to stop by and see how beautiful it is and it would be rude to talk out empty handed! I've been looking for a lip liner to go with Morange and a few other coral lipsticks that I've got and after a little googling Lasting Sensation looks like the most recommended. I will happily admit it, I'm weak, I can't leave a MAC counter without buying a lipstick and I've got three on my wish list at the minute. Sweet and Sour is sold out everywhere and I've never had such painful skippers remorse, I NEED THIS!! I read that the new Pro store had the All About Orange collection stocked when it first opened and I know it's a long shot but maybe there's still one that got forgotten about and can come home with me?! I want to start getting a bit bolder with my lips and moving away from peachy shades and that's when Lady Danger and Ruby Woo finally got my attention. I don't think I've ever seen a MAC lipstick collection post without either of these so I definitely feel like I'm missing out, how will I choose between them?! I don't own any MAC Paint Pots but I've got my eye on two after seeing swatches and a couple of reviews - Bare Study is my usual neutral base colour and Lets Skate is a really unique glittery pink.

Moving away from MAC and something that I wouldn't be able to get my hands on unless I ebayed them are the Victorias Secrets Body Mists, I've wanted these for so long, so hopefully I come back smelling all coconutty! There's a couple of Topshop highlighters that I'm hoping Oxford Street will deliver for me because they seem to have fallen off the edge of the earth, boo! I need to stock up on Touche Eclat as well and try not to get distracted by the lipsticks begging me to take them home and another thing I need is a day moisturiser, I don't think I've ever seen a bad review about Ginzing so I really want to give it a go and see if it can make me look awake in the mornings! And last on my list is the Real Techniques Beauty Blender, I've never used a sponge before so if I get my hands on it this should be interesting! 

I really need to go and finish packing and getting ready now, London here I come!

    1. I smelt that one and it was so nice but a bit too sickly for me (if that's even possible!) Oh god, I can see how, it is literally a bank account danger zone! xx

  4. The Victoria's Secret body mists are amazing! I haven't tried either of those two but Coconut Passion sounds like my kind of scent.

  6. I'm really eyeing up the Sweet and Sour lipstick from MAC, next payday... If I can still hunt it down!

    The only place I know that I can get hold of VS products is Stansted airport sadly :(
