My Current Wishlist #3


A big welcome to all my new followers! Where did you all come from? I expect most of you are here for my giveaway (if you haven't checked it out yet then you should!), but I do hope you enjoy my blog anyway.

Today's another wishlist post. I'm trying not to do these too often, but I'm very aware that I've not posted in over a week and I've been too busy to take any photos. However I have lots of blog posts planned and I'm hoping to take photos tomorrow, so stick around for lots of new content!

Anyway, these are the things I've had my eye on recently.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Elusive - £7.99

The ColorBurst Matte Balms have been a blogger favourite ever since they hit the shelves. And having read numerous reviews on them I can understand why! They seem like the ideal product for days where you want a no-fuss, foolproof method of adding colour to your lips. And the inclusion of shea, mango and coconut butters ensures that your lips will not only look amazing, but be soft and smooth too. After having seen swatches of most of the shades on offer, I've decided that the first shade I'll be picking up is Elusive. This is a pale pink, which provides a 'my-lips-but-better' look. And it's subtle enough to wear for all occasions, so I'll be sure to get a lot of use out of it. The ColorBurst Matte Balms are available here.


Bourjois Paris Happy Light Matte Serum Primer - £10.99

I recently picked up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel foundation (link here) and so far I'm really impressed by the formula and coverage. It manages to conceal most blemishes (only a little bit of concealer was needed), whilst making me look radiant. So naturally I gained an interest in other Bourjois products. In my search for a primer, I came across this product which has good reviews online. One of the reviews even compares it to the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer that I've been lusting after. At a fraction of the price this is definitely worth trying out! The primer is available to buy here.


Cucumber and Melon Classic Jar Candle from Flamingo Candles - £12.00

Flamingo Candles have just recently started making an appearance in the blogosphere, but the few reviews I've seen have really tempted me. The range of fragrances available on their website are really unique (they've even got an entire collection based on a Candy shop), and this cucumber and melon candle caught my attention. If it smells anything similar to how I'm imagining it'll be the perfect fresh fragrance for the Spring and Summer months! Flamingo candles are available from their website here.


Horace Black and White Patent Loafers by Rocket Dog - RRP £43.00

So these were on my wishlist until about half an hour ago (I simply couldn't resist), but I thought I'd include them anyway! I became instantly obsessed with them when I saw Hannah wearing the all black version over on Away with the Fairies yesterday (...I actually feel like I've been lusting over them forever...), and I was pretty excited to find the black and white version on sale for £25.00 over on Zalando (here). I'm so excited for them to arrive and I'm sure they'll feature again on my blog in the future!


Divergent by Veronica Roth - paperback from £3.50

Image from www.amazon.com
I hate to admit it, but I hadn't heard of this book until I saw the adverts for the film based on it. I also haven't read a synopsis of it (I don't like knowing too much about a book before I start it), but the advert makes me think it's a book I'd enjoy. I've also heard some good reviews about the whole trilogy, and it's been compared to The Hunger Games, so I'm sure I won't be disappointed! I think I'm going to start reading soon so that I can finish it before heading to the cinema. Divergent is available in most book stores and supermarkets.


Do you own any of these? If so, please let me know what you think!
