May Wishlist!

Thank you for such sweet comments and tweets yesterday wishing me a happy birthday, I had such a lovely day (I was meant to be writing an essay but I didn't write a single word!) and I'm so happy that the sun shone all day. I was super lucky and got a little bit of birthday money and I definitely want to treat myself to something nice and not just spend it on something boring like a food shop.
1. Aldo Envelope Clutch. 2. Love Moschino Owl Shoulder Bag. 3. Topshop Lip Bullet in Covet. 4. Topshop Pleated Midi Dress. 5. Beauty Blender. 6. Dior Addict Lip Glow. 7. Diorskin Nude BB Cream. 8. Bobbi Brown Extra Tinted Balm. 9. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser.      

1 & 2. I don't really have a nice evening bag and recently I've really been lusting after one. This Love Moschino Owl Shoulder Bag has been on my radar for a few weeks now and I totally would have purchased by now if the chain was longer. I know I can always make my own but it's a lot of money for something that's not quite perfect, you know? I spotted this Aldo Envelope Clutch on ASOS last night and fell in lust with the colour, it's super pretty!

3. I have a few Topshop vouchers currently burning a hole in my pocket and they have some super lovely things at the moment. I've not tried one of these Lip Bullets before but the shade Covet looks really pretty and I'm tempted by the promise of a dewy lip.

4. Topshop also have a really lovely selection of midi & maxi dresses, which I'm finding really refreshing at the moment. Everything I've loved over the past couple of weeks has just been way too short (pinafore dresses I'm looking at you) so when I spotted this Topshop Pleated Midi Dress it was love at first sight!

5. Recently I've seen more and more people talking about the Beauty Blender, or one of the more affordable alternatives and I'm curious. I've never tried anything like it before but I've read some amazing reviews about how flawlessly and easily it applies foundation, which sounds like something I need in my life!

6. I'm a total sucker for easy lip products, especially tinted lip balms, so the Dior Addict Lip Glow just looks completely perfect!

7, 8 & 9. One of my spring make up goals (that sounds so silly) is to find a really nice tinted moisturiser that comes in a fair shade that suits my skin tone. I've tried the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser before and the shade porcelain is pretty perfect so I might go for that one, but I kind of want to try something new. The Diorskin Nude BB Cream has been getting a lot of positive reviews recently and I think the palest shade should be quite a good match for me but I'm also still tempted by the Bobbi Brown Extra Tinted Balm but I haven't been able to find the shade Alabaster in stock anywhere yet! All in all, I'm confused and have no idea which to go for. 

Do you have a favourite tinted moisturiser?
xoxo

  2. I really love the dress and its colour! I think it's perfect for spring/summer times :) I would LOVE to try Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer as I tend not to use foundation in summer because that's just way too heavy. I wouldn't buy a beauty blender though, I think it's great but I rather do spread foundation with my fingers :)

    Great post!

  3. Very intrigued by the Dior Addict Lip Glow! Oh Jennie, you always make the most covetable wishlists, I often find myself keen on almost everything you include :-)

    Have been a little absent lately with one thing and another but hope you are well!

  7. I love the look of the Topshop lip bullet - such a lovely shade for summer! I struggle to find good tinted moisturisers too, they are always too orangey :( xxx

  8. I highly recommend the dior lip glow, its perfection! For me anyways. It turns your lips a really pretty natural pink and is moisturising, but go and try it in a store because it's different for everyone apparently. I use mine pretty much like chapstick and keep it in my purse, and its lasted about 5 months, and I actually just ordered another one because I never want to be without it.

  12. Love your wishlist, and I'm glad to hear you had a nice birthday. I've been eying the Dior Lip Glow myself, and I LOVE the Owl bag it looks so nice. My favorite tinted moisturizer is the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, but I find the packaging to be so messy. I've also heard BelleDuJourNYC mention that Dior has a tinted moisturizer, I think it is the Hydralife tinted moisturizer. I really like MAC's Face & Body foundation for a tinted moisturizer-ish product.

  13. I recently bought the clinique cc cream which is like a tinted moisturiser and it's so good - really good coverage although it feels light and gives a fresh glowy look aswell as having extra skincare benefits! I use the lightest shade which is perfect for my fair skin x

  20. Happy belated birthday for yesterday! Definitely make sure you spend your birthday money on something fun for you - I do the same, so spend it soon before it goes on toilet roll or something haha. Really like the colour of the topshop lipstick and really intrigued too by the beauty blender - not heard of that before but any product that gives flawless foundation application is a winner in my book!

  23. Happy birthday! I've tired out the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer before, didn't work out for me because I have oily skin and it made my skin really oily >.<. As of now I still haven't found a holy grail tinted moisturizer. I'm a big fan of BB cream though :)
