The Lust List: Annie’s Part 3

A: Following my Pixi Lust List and MAC Lust List, I thought I’d better show you my Nars Lust List. I found this one a little harder to put together because I pretty much need all of the Nars products in my life and I don’t own any at the moment – disasterous.

cheeklip

Matte Mulitple: Exumas

“Vibrant pops and sensual sun-kissed modern matte hues for lips and cheeks. Used dry it delivers a burst of high-impact color; used wet, color melts into skin with an imperceptibly smooth, sheer finish.”

I’m a sucker for a multi-use product, especially if it’s matte. The colours available in this are amazing and look really pigmented, and I really like the fact that this can be used either wet or dry to give a different finish. This is £30 from the Nars website, for a duo product that’s not too bad and the size looks good value for money too.

pore

Instant Line & Pore Perfector

“The ultimate in form and function for targeted, effortless application. This artist essential instantly smoothes fine lines and reduces large pores to immediately create a smooth even surface for foundation and makeup application. “

If this does what it says on the tin, then I’m sold. I have huge pores, but I try to avoid products like this because they just get in my skin and clog my pores even more – vicious circle! BUT, this is a lust list, which implies that I would have lots of dollar to buy these things, meaning I would buy this if I could because it might just work wonders! It’s priced at £20 – pretty resonable for a high-end primer type product. You can find it here if you’re as tempted as I am.

ill

Orgasm Illuminator

Light the skin from within. A collection of light-reflecting liquids that glide on to refresh and enhance the complexion with shimmering incandescence. Deceptively sheer, decidedly luminous.”

A cult classic. I’m still desperatly seeking the perfect ‘dewey look’ product, and this looks pretty promising – £22.50 and available here.

del

Trio Eyeshadow Delphes

“A trio of harmonious, color combinations of eyeshadow shades. Worn alone or together, all Trio Eyeshadow shades feature micro-fine powders that are highly pigmented, longwearing and crease resistant. Color glides on smoothly, evenly and blends effortlessly.”

Okay, I need this. I am a total eyeshadow convert, and although I don’t wear a lot, these colours are perfect for me. Pallettes are perfect because you can use the colours alone, as a duo or as a trio. These are sparkling sheer peach, matte dove grey and frosted sage. Beautiful, and £33 available here.

The Lust List: Annie’s Part 1

A: Recently I’ve been lusting over so many high-end products that I thought I would put together a series with my top branded products – starting with MAC.

creme

Cremeblend Blush

“a blush that manages to make a simple blush state-of-the-art. Creamy, easy to blend medium coverage formula imparts a natural finish that’s smooth, dewy-fresh and long-lasting.”

I love a good cream blusher and this is top of the list for me. It looks really buildable, which is perfect for Summer as you can apply as little or as much as you need – depending on your tan (I still need a lot, pale and pasty is an all-round-year look for me). I think my favourite colour is ‘posey’ because it’s a dusky pink rather than a red-pink, which would suit my skin tone perfectly. It’s currently for sale on MAC’s UK site for £18.00 here.

green luxe

Verluxe Pearlfushion Shadow: Greenluxe

“Five complementary shades that glide on and blend beautifully for infinite day-to-night looks: light peach, bright champagne with pearl, dark olive, blackened green with gold pearl and deep forest green with pearl. Matte to highly pearlized finish.”

I have only just started to get into my eyeshadows (I know!!), and this looks b-e-a-utful. I love wearing goldy/blacky/shimmery tones on my eyeline and blending them out with subtle shimmers so this would be perfect for me. It’s quite pricey at £30, but I think it’s totally worth it. You can find it here, along with lots of other shades.

brush

168 Large Angled Contour Brush

“For expert application of cheek contour. This brush is a large angled contour – the fibres form a buffed edge and are soft and firmly bundled. M·A·C professional brushes are hand-sculpted and assembled using the finest quality materials. They feature birch, linden and ramin wood handles, nickel-plated brass ferrules.”

Contouring is my new favourite thing, so I obviously need a new tool. This is perfect and I have other MAC brushes so I know they are amazing quality. The angle is ideal for contouring and blending – it is £27, but MAC brushes are super long-lasting so I wouldn’t mind spending that much. You can find it here.

sochaud

Matte Lipstick: So Chaud

“Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.”

I just had to include a lipstick, you can’t have a lust list without one can you? Orange is my favourite colour at the moment, and I can’t even explain how much I need this. I have a few MAC lipsticks already, in nude and wearable colours so a bright would be perfect to add to my collection. At £15 I may just have to treat myself.
