Lust List: September




Foundation: I'd been relying on diddy samples of mineral foundations for ages now and they recently all ran out. I really really miss the coverage and finish of a mineral foundation and find they work really well with my always fussy skin. I tried Lily Lolo, Jane Iredale & W3LL People and Jane Iredale stood out as my favourite as the shades were spot on and the pressed version was just so easy to use (though I really like the loose too) I'm the shade bisque which is pretty hard to find, luckily, as it's so expensive. I've also had a lot of recommendations from you for Inika, and I've read a lot of great things about it, the shade range isn't as good but it's a little cheaper and I'd be interested in seeing how it compares.

Toner: I use up toner more than any other skincare product and feel like I'm always coming to the end of one or another. I love toner! Bodhi & Birch recently released their Rosa Rosa skincare range and everyone I follow on twitter went mad for it, my feed was chock-full of the event images for days. I guess marketing works as I'm very intreguied, I don't think the moisturiser would be suitable for my skin but the hydrating toner, oh the toner! Damask Rose, Chamomile, Aloe, Witch Hazel & Orange Blossom? Dreamy.

Serums: Pai Skincare are releasing two new serums tomorrow, one for redness/sensitivity and one for blemish prone skin. I have both issues so I have no idea which I'd prefer but I just love Pai. I've only really tried their balancing moisturiser but I used the whole bottle up and would definitely buy it again should I run out of moisturiser. I just love that all their products are suitable for sensitive skin. As you also know I'm smitten with Odacite at the moment and am really really lusting after another of their serums, the Black Cumin + Cajeput one! 

Boots: I definitely need a new pair of winter boots and I'm pretty fussy when it comes to shoes, I'd like a tan or brown pair of flat boots, cosy and preferably fur lined as nobody likes cold toes. The ones above are Topshop, but I fear they'd make my feet look a lot bigger than they are and my skinny ankles would look strange if they were too wide. I'll have to see if they have them in store next time im in town. I also really like these Blowfish boots, I've had a similar pair before that I wore to the point the soles practically fell off. I wear them with the fur turned up, not folded over in the picture so they look a lot nicer, they're about £20 more expensive since I bought mine 3 years ago now though, yikes! 

Coat: The colour of the coat!!! I bought a very similar one last year in the topshop sale but it was way too big so I had to return it (though I've found one a smaller size on ebay so am crossing my fingers!) This River Island number is purposefully oversized so would drown me but its fluffy and looks oh so cosy. I just can't get over that colour! hoping my ebay bidding pulls off for once ;)

What are you lusting for?

  1. Pai is such a lovely brand, I can't wait to try their new serums, especially the one for blemish-prone skin. And I've been lusting after the Odacitè Black Cumin + Cajeput too! Those boots look absolutely adorable and comfortable as well.

  2. I really like the sound of the Pai serum for blemished skin, hopefully they release a sample size like they do with some of their other products xx
