1. Bumble&Bumble Surf Shampoo / 2. Models Own Hypergel Nail Polishes / 3. Korres Lip Balm / 4. Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick / 5. Ted Baker Make-Up Bags / 6. Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation

Whilst I spent the most of yesterday waiting for domain issues settings to settle, I did a spot of virtual window shopping. Browsing for beauty products in between refreshing my blog kept me somewhat calm, it prevented me from having a melt down as I thought I had broken something!

1. My first stop was SpaceNK where I got lost in the Bumble&Bumble section because I seriously need to change up my shampoo because the current one I’m using isn’t doing a good job of keeping my hair clean! There are so many types of shampoo to choose from, such an extensive range but I’ve had my eye on the Surf shampoo for ages because I like any hair product that promises to give you perfect natural waves. I need to change up my shampoo because the current one I’m using isn’t doing a good job of keeping my hair clean!

2. The new offering from Models Own are the HyperGel nail polishes which comes in ten different shades but I quite like the pastel ones as I can never find shades like that to be as shiny as I’d like. Models Own have a few things up their sleeves this Spring, including the Speckled Eggs collection which are dupes of Illamasqua speckled polishes from the I’mperfection collection from last Spring.

3. Korres lip balms were really hyped up a couple of years ago but I’ve yet to purchase one due to the fact that I already have LOADS of lip balms. I’ve got one in every hand bag, coat pocket and make up bag and I’m never short of them. I’m always checking these out every time I’m in House Of Fraser, and I think the Pomegranate one is my favourite. Sometimes you can get discounted Korres products from TK Maxx, but sadly, they are always in shades that doesn’t suit my skin tone.

4. I’m loving the packaging of these! Each shade comes in a different colour packaging which makes them look nice and colourful (and enticing) for Summer! The Bourjois Shine Edition lipsticks offer high shine, radiant colour and the comfort of lip balm. As mentioned above, I am a huge fan of lip balms so I’ll be interested to try this. Really hoping these are in the Boots 3 for 2 offers so I can get a few other shades too.

5. These crop up in my wishlist a lot! These Ted Baker ones are pretty and they brings out new designs and colours of these make-up/wash bag and I just want them all! I am constantly looking for a make up that is big enough to store my essentials but easy enough to carry around if I am going away for a few days. I don’t carry that much but with bulky items such as bottles of primers, BB cream, liquid foundation, eyebrow quad palette, setting powder, and blusher, I find that most make up bags are just not big enough.

6. Last, but not least! Although this item is last on my wishlist, it is the one I want the most! Most bloggers will agree that this Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation is the foundation of dreams! I can’t remember which shade suits me best but I swatched it when I was in John Lewis and it was completely the perfect match for my skin! I wish I wrote it down because I could’ve have just bought it online by now. I’ll have to pop in and buy this next time I’m shopping in there, it is going to worth every penny!

What has been on your beauty wishlist recently? Anything I should be looking out for next time I go shopping? With the noise about Sephora finally shipping to the UK, I’m sure my next beauty wish list (or haul, even!) isn’t too far away!

    I absolutely loved the Models Own nail polishes and the Bourjois Shine Edition lipstick!

    Those lipsticks are in the 3 for 2. I was going to pick one up today along with the other bits I was getting but the shade I wanted had melted and was the last one 🙁 such a shame when that happens, I'll be trying another Boots store though – I always seem to stock up on new things when the 3 for 2 is on, saves a bit of money doesn't it!

    I saw the Ted Baker bags at Psyche last night and they're so cute, loving the pastel trend that's upon us, although it is really making me want to buy a mint green coat and I'm not sure that's going to be the best decision!

    I really want to try out some of the lip products from Korres. I saw Michelle Phan use a Korres lip gloss/balm on one of her YT videos and I've wanted one ever since haha.

    I am after the Models Own pastel hypergels too! I do not own any pastel colours and these look beautiful. I saw the advert for the speckled egg ones today too I love the look of them. My birthday is coming up soonish so I know Models Own will definitely be making a large appearance on my wishlist!
