Monday Lust List 006.

1. Whenever I get newsletter emails from Yumi I fear for my bank balance because everything is so ridiculously cute! This Yumi Hummingbird Dress is just beautiful. The print is stunning, the cut looks super flattering & I love the length of the sleeves and the button detailing on the bust.

2. During my teenage years Nirvana were my favourite band and even now I have a little soft spot for their songs so when I spied this Nirvana vest top from H&M I instantly wanted to own one! I think this would be really nice bought in a few sizes larger so it's super over sized with a pair of thick black leggings for a laid back look. I also love the Jimi Hendrix print & The Beatles print too but the Nirvana one is my favourite! 

3. I'm not usually a huge fan of the clothes in New Look but this shirt dress is just gorgeous! The rich blue colour is beautiful & perfect for the upcoming Autumn season & the ribbon belt around the waist makes it wonderfully flattering! 

4. The Topshop Gel Eyeliner in Ink went on my lust list as soon as I read Lily's review here. I have Blacktrack Fluid Line from MAC and although I like it, I don't love it. It doesn't stay put very well at all on me so I'm pretty disappointed. I can't use liquid liners at all, my hands just don't co-operate so I'm after the perfect gel liner!

5. I only have one of Topshop's blushers and that's a cream one in the shade Neon Rose. I've just spotted that Topshop have now introduced some new powder blushers to their make up range and this shade which is called Powdered really caught my attention.

6. I only ever tend to wear flat ballet pumps because I never manage to find any other shoes that I really like. These Cut Out Lace Up shoes from New Look are a little bit unusual and that's why I love them so much. I like that they have a tiny heel & I think they'd go with a lot of different outfits. They're a bit of a bargain too at £17.99!

7. I'm in desperate need of a good eye cream. I don't think anything would be able to reduce my dark circles but as I get that little bit older I'd like to invest in one that will keep my under eyes hydrated. Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream from Origins has had a lot of positive reviews & I'd really love to try it!

Have you tried either of these Topshop make up items before?
What's at the top of your lust list at the moment?


  1. I really want to try that origins eye cream too!

  2. Nice lust list!:D I would love to try Topshop makeup, I'll get some the next time I go to New York!:D

    Happy Monday, Jennie!:D

  3. I want that eyeliner after seeing Lily's post too! Currently on a makeup ban though - but when September rolls around its mine! Liking the look of some of the blushers too! :-) xx

  4. Neon Rose is a lovely blush, so pigmented but sheers out so well :) xx

  5. oh topshop do powder blush now?! this is good news, i cant get the hang of the cream ones but they always look so lovely! def gunna have to try this one i think. love everything else too xx

  6. Ooh I love Nirvana,the vest is so cute!! I really need to try Topshop's make-up aswell!! :) xxx

  7. i love the nirvana t-shirt! they always have great band t-shirts in h&m, i love them:) xo

  8. I'm the same way - Nirvana will always have a spot in my musical heart! Love the tank.

  9. I want the liner too, it's got such good reviews! Topshop blushers are good too aren't they :) x

  10. The product that works wonders for dark circles is for me personally Clinique cream or roll for eyes. It really helps overnight! X


  11. I ordered the Origins eye cream on Saturday..still waiting on it coming.
    The origins website is giving away freebie samples just now too - double bonus :) x

  12. I just ordered the Origins eye cream on Saturday - so excited for it to arrive :D

    If you order it from the Origins website they are giving away some freebie samples with your order as well - double bonus! x

  13. Great picks that blush is so pretty!!


  14. I was at a bar on friday night and the girl behind the bar was wearing a Nirvana top and it totally made me want my old one back. I had a coat with an iron-on patch of Kurt Cobain on the side too.. I was in love.
    Bird print is great, that dress is lovely it makes you think of summer times and festivals straight away. I've not tried any of the topshop makeup but your reviews on past products have been good so I might give it a got when mine runs out :) xx

  15. I find the gel eye liner really hard to apply, it's really messy and the lines aren't neat! As much as I love the Topshop make-up, the packaging gets so messy!

    Lots of Love,
    Lily from Red Brick Lipstick

  16. I want to try that eye cream too as I've only heard good things about it! xx

  17. That dress is gooorgeous! (The horse-print one isn't bad either!)

  18. I saw that Nirvana vest as well - want! I used to love them when I was younger - I think I still have a hoody somewhere...

  19. i bought the topshop gel liner in blue a few weeks ago ('steel' i think it's called?) and was really disappointed - it's very hard, impossible to pick up enough product to get a good line, and even after trying to warm the product up first it was no easier.

    hopefully i just got a dud, or maybe it's just the navy ones that are like this, but i'd recommend having a check of the consistency of the black one before buying!

    also i'm dying to try out that eye cream, i'll check it out after my clinique sample runs out :D

  20. I keep meaning to buy one of Topshops new blushes! I need to get one soon.

  21. I really like the Maybelline Black gel liner, but not with the supplied brush... I use it with a much smaller pointed liner brush and it is super black and stayed put all through my hen night! good enough for me. x
