Autumn Beauty Lust List

Friday, 22 August 2014

As a self-confessed beauty enthusiast, a new season means new beauty bits. Back in April I fell in love with the YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation (£36) and since then, I've never looked back. It's on its last legs so I desperately need to replenish for Autumn. The colour, coverage and longevity are super impressive and it's become my holy grail foundation. It's pretty pricey, but for the incredible product in the most gorgeous bottle, it's a price I'm willing to pay. Once you've achieved the perfect base, I like to have products to add a little colour and dimension, and I've been wanting the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish (£23) for a while now. The Soft and Gentle shade looks lovely and I think it would be a welcome addition to my new seasonal makeup bag. I like to up my skincare routine when the weather changes and although I love my REN ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser (£18) (because that's not a mouthful), I've heard that the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (£14.95) is a bit of a cult classic which I'm eager to try when I'm due a new cleanser to try and keep my skin in the best possible condition.

I'm loyal to my Real Techniques brushes but I've been hearing a lot of great stuff about the Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set brushes. I'm not sure on the exact price but they come in at 65 Euros which seems reasonable for eight brushes. They come in a cute little pouch and are pretty to look at, let alone use. One of the things I hate most about the colder weather is dry lips, and the Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub (£5.50) is right up my street. I had the Bubblegum one last year and it's a cheap, cheerful and effective product. Smooth lips are essential, especially when wearing lipstick, and I'm desperate to get my hands on Topshop's Lips in Inhibition lipstick (£8). It's the perfect deep, dark and vampy shade for Autumn and as I've never owned a Topshop lipstick before, I'm keen to try one out. You can't have vampy lips without vampy nails and Barry M Nail Paint in Red Wine (£2.99) is an Autumn classic which I buy every year without fail. Last but not least is this gorgeous Clarins Eye Quartet Mineral Palette (£32) in Forest. I can imagine the colours would be extremely pigmented and good quality and the packaging is just dreamy.
