My Top 5 Most Wanted!!

Hello Again,

Todays post is going to be all about my top 5 wanted make up products. As I am a mum who is on a very strict budget I can't splurge as much as I'd like. But one day I will (hopefully anyway) own these products. I will talk through why I like them and where you can get them. I am mainly obsessed with these products because of the YouTubers that I watch, I like watching people use them and review them as I feel I have a better understanding of the product when I go to buy it. I personally think all of these products are beautiful so take a look.

Number 5: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.

I have watched many a make up tutorial using this but the one that stands out for me is one done by Victoria from Inthefrow. As she applied it, her skin went almost instantaneously dewy. This is a look I so desperately try to achieve but no matter what product I use I just can't get the effect! This though - ticks that box. This is honestly the look that I want on my wedding day as it makes you look like you are glowing from within and what bride doesn't want to look like that on their big day?! In Aberdeen you can get this in either Debenhams or John Lewis, but you can also get it from various places online but from Debenhams it is £36.50.

Number 4: Colour Pop 4 piece eyeshadow set - 'Where the light is', by Kathleen Lights.

This is Kathleen Lights's own foursome (4 separate eyeshadows - get your minds out of the gutter) which she made through the cosmetics brand ColourPop. Unfortunately this is not a brand that is sold in the UK - But I am majorly contemplating doing an order and getting it shipped over (little excited sequel). The colours in this are truly beautiful, I've watched Kathleen's make up tutorial where she did a burnt gold look over and over again with these and I about fell off my chair. This is definitely a foursome that you could do a full out bronze smokey eye or just an every day eye! They look super super pigmented so I really hope I can get my hands on this. I also love how she's called one of them Cornelious - as the colour reminded her of her dog and that's his name - so cute! I wonder if anyone I know is going to the states anytime soon... It is $20 and you can get it from the ColourPop website.

Number 3: Urban Decay Naked Palette 3.

Now at the time of writing this the new Naked 4 Palette - which is actually called the smokey palette - has just been released. It's practically sold out everywhere but I'm not really that fussed about it as I hardly ever do a smokey eye and if I do it tends to be golds and browns (see, I need the Kathleen Lights foursome in my life). But I actually don't own any of the Urban Decay Palettes, I used to have the NYC box which lit up and had the most beautiful colours in it but it got very old and grubby so it's long gone. But the one that catches my eye the most is the Naked 3 Palette. It has 12 eyeshadows and I love that mainly all the colours have that pinky gold hue! I am rose gold obsessed so this is perfect for me! I also really like the look of the packaging as it looks really sturdy, I know a lot of people prefer the packing on the first naked palette but I think this one looks so sleek and stunning! This is actually going to have to be bought on payday because I just can't go any longer without this in my life!!! You can get it online or again in Aberdeen you can get it in Debenhams or John Lewis and it is £38.00.

Number 2: Beauty Blender

I really want this in my collection as my Real Techniques Complexion sponge is my best friend! But I know that this is the original sponge and apparently is so much better - I have to say I am doubtful and my trusty real techniques sponge does wonderful things. So this is purely to be nosey and if it does work better then I'd be over the moon! Typical woman - always nosey and wanting to know everything! I've found that I can get this on for £16.00 which I think is quite expensive for a sponge but as I haven't used it I'm not going to cast judgement on it for now just because of the price.

Number 1: Hourglass Ambient Lighting power, in the shade Luminous Light.

This is my most wanted make up product!!! I have seen so many people use this in tutorials especially Jaclyn Hill - I am literally obsessed with her! She is a qualified Make Up artist but I don't just love her because of that, she is just so real and down to earth - plus she makes me bloody laugh!! Where was I, Oh yes in all of Jaclyn's videos where she has used this or spoken about it she has always said that it's the perfect highlight for brides. So I was literally sold right there - it is expensive for a highlight but it's BEAUTIFUL! I am highlight obsessed so I just need this in my life. You can buy this online on John Lewis's website but unfortunately not in the shade luminous light! I will find it and when I do, I will probably hum and hey until giving in a buying it! But you can find different shades at John Lewis for £38.00

So that is my Top 5 Most Wanted Products. What are yours?

'Till next time ...
