Hiya cupcakes and Happy Friday! <3 I can’t believe tomorrow is the day I’ll be finally going to London whoop! I am so excited and I seriously cannot wait to arrive. I adore London and it is by far my favorite city I’ve visited (along with Barcelona maybe) and I can’t wait for us to reunite. What I am not very excited about though is the flight! I hate flying and I have serious fear of flying, just the thought of it makes me nauseous but I hope everything will be okay! :) One thing, which will keep me positive during these terrifying three hours, will have to be the shopping. I know, very deep and profound lol! Seriously though, there are so so many things I want to pick up and which I’m not able to get my mitts on where I live that it’s a big deal for me! ;) Here are some of the beauty products on my veeeery long list, which I’m hoping to pick up, hope you enjoy!
REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask
Without a doubt I will have to start with the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I cannot begin to describe how much I’ve been wanting this recently and I even tweeted about how I can’t wait to get it next week! I have heard SO many rave reviews on this gem and apparently it is a skin miracle worker. :) It is a peel mask, which you apply, leave for 10 minutes and then you remove the exfoliated skin. It is great to use on mature and congested skin and helps clarify the skin and improves tone, firmness and radiance. This is exactly what I need and I really hope it would work. I’m usually not a huge believer in the benefits of face masks because I never really notice much difference but we shall see! Let me know if you’ve tried it, please!
I have had my eyes on some NUDE skincare products for a while and figured that this trip is a nice time to introduce myself to the brand. Plus, I have had some serious issues with my skin recently and I really feel like I need to invest in better skincare. The three products from NUDE I fancy trying out are the Perfect Cleansing Oil, Radiant Day Moisturizer and above all their ProGenius oil. They all sound very promising and I got them recommended my many people saying that they improve the skin massively, making it dewy and supple. I still haven’t decided whether I will get the full size bottles or some minis to try out first. I know that Space NK have a gift set with exactly three products so I think it would be wiser to get that instead paying a fortune for things, which I don’t know how my skin will like. Either way, I am super excited to try them out and review them for you all. (:
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
This is the moment when I hide myself in the corner and shamefully admit that the eyelash curler I’m currently using is approximately 7 years old and I bought it for about $2, it is straight forward - a trash! It doesn’t do the trick well at all and every time I use it I’m afraid it will poke my eye out hah. With that being said, a new eyelash curler is much needed and I have seen tons of YouTube beauty gurus and models use this one by Shu Uemura so I’m sure it will work fab and I will finally achieve the perfect curl. :)
So we still don’t have Benefit in my country (even though Sephora promised it for the beginning of this year…) so I feel almost obligated to pick up a few bits from my favorite brand. I am sure I’ll end up getting more but the two products I’m dying to get are their Hervana blush and Fakeup concealer. The blush looks so pretty when you mix all colors together and I feel like it would be the most gorgeous, natural everyday shade. As for the concealer, since the day it came out a few months ago, I’ve been wanting to try it out. Its formula seems very cool and innovative with its ‘double duty hydrating and concealing’ claim and the fact that people say it doesn’t crease at all makes me want it even more!
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick
Another range I’m really really excited about checking out is the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks. I’ve been seeing these on my favorite blogs recently and apparently they are beyond amazing. People say that they are
ridiculously creamy and pigmented and last ages as well. Needless to say these are the main things I look for in a lipstick and as a massive UD fan, I’m sold! The color range is also impressive with their 21 shades and I can sense it that I’ll spend a good hour swatching and testing them all out! :)
Maybelline Baby Lips
Last but definitely not least, I am so thrilled to hold in my position some of the oh-so-famous Maybelline Baby Lips. As a total beauty addict with a massive passion for lip balms it’s been such a torture watching my favorite YouTubers swear by these little babies and not being able to try them myself. When I heard they are headed to the UK I squealed and jumped up of excitement! They are supposed to provide 8hr of hydration as well as renew the lips. They also have SPF 20, which is always great to have! I am planning on getting Quenched, which is clear and Cherry Me, which gives a nice tint to the lips. Which one is your favorite?
So loves, there were my top things I am lusting over and I hope they all will pop up in a haul soon ;). I’m sorry for the overuse of the word ‘excited’ in this post but I am genuinely excited for my trip and the beauty bits I will be playing around soon! I will try to post lots of pretty pictures on Instagram whereas I’m in London using the hashtag #andreadoeslondon so if you’re interested what I'm up to you can check that out. :) I hope you are all well and have a wonderful weekend!
Lots of love!
