Beauty's Most Wanted....


Like most twenty-something females, I spend most of my hard earned cash on 2 things: 1) makeup and 2) beauty products (with some clothes, food and holidays thrown in for good measure!) I always think that if you are spending money on something that will help to improve/ maintain you looks, it's worth every penny. Let's be honest, we wear our face's every day so why not treat yourself? These are the hottest new products I am lusting over this week....

'The perfect palette for summer is here' I have been told by MUR. This compact is a dupe of Bobbi Brown's 'Surf and Sand' palette from last summer, and contains 12 shimmery gorgeous shades perfect for any sunkissed beach babe! Retailing at only £4, this will definitely be coming on my summer holiday with me.

This dual use product by Topshop beauty is a snip at £8.50, and can be used on both cheeks and lips to add a pop of colour, and fits perfectly into any makeup bag. It has a nifty little brush on the end to blend the product in, and I am loving this gorgeous peach shade. 

Unless you have been living under a rock for a while you will know how on trend contouring is at the moment. With almost every brand offering products to achieve the perfect contoured look, it can be quite overwhelming deciding which one to go for. This little offering from Maybelline is easy peasy and comes in 2 shades (neither of which are orange, unlike of lot of the ones I have tried!) Simply use the brush in the base of the compact to firstly apply the darker colour under the cheek bones, at the sides of the nose and around the forehead, and then highlight along the nose, cheek bones and on the forehead using the lighter powder.

Another big trend it beauty at the moment is ombre lips, and Topshop Beauty have the perfect product to achieve this desirable look. Simply use the dark shade (which has a balm like texture) all over the lips, then apply the lighter shade on top to highlight and create a gorgeous two tone finish. Buy online or instore now for £9.

St Tropez's innovative new 'in shower' gradual tan has finally launched, and I could not be more excited! Use as part of your daily routine, and the brand promise that it will 'build a sunkissed, gradual glow' and 'provide up to 24 hour moisturisation.' It claims to give a streak free finish finish and also there is no need to moisturiser afterwards. It retails at £14.50 and is definitely a game changer for all us pale girls!

I am always on the lookout for new brushes to add to my collection, so I was beyond excited when I heard about Spectrum's new brush set. This limited edition beauty contains 10 of their best selling brushes, all in a clam shell clutch. Part of their Atlantis collection (I LOVE this new colour combo) this retails at £59.99 and is available now.

7) Benefit Porefessional: License to Blot
If, like me, you suffer from oily skin and often end up looking too 'caked' by the end of the day from all the powder you have applied, this product is for you! The newest offering in Benefit's 'Porefessional' range, this handy little blotting stick is £15.50 and is perfect for all those areas that love to shine- the chin, sides of the nose and the forehead. It helps reduce the appearance of pores, and also helps mattify for up to 6 hours.
