16 October, 2015 Space NK Beauty Wishlist
I’ve never written a beauty wishlist blog post before, but I always read them for potential purchase inspiration. I thought it might be helpful to do a rundown of the top 10 beauty products I’m currently coveting – five makeup, five skincare – so you can get an idea of the brands I’m into at the moment, and the areas of beauty I want to learn more about. Space NK is a mecca for beauty lovers, and my ultimate beauty shopping destination. I totally appreciate that not everyone takes this stuff as seriously as I do, but for me, discovering new beauty products is one of my greatest joys in life – and I want to share it with y’all!
I’d also just like to point out that this blog post is TOTALLY non-sponsored. I just really like Space NK, and the staff in my local Liverpool Street branch were kind enough to let me take a few pictures of their store.
Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm (£46 here) – whilst Sunday Riley’s Luna, Juno and Artemis oils all look gorgeous, and I’ve heard fantastic things about the Good Genes exfoliating treatment, this beautiful balm is just what I fancy after a long day spent in polluted London. The ingredients list includes blue tansy, chamomile, moringa, vanilla, tangerine and squalene, all known for their hydrating, soothing and radiance-boosting properties.
Sarah Chapman Overnight Exfoliating Booster (£58 here) – I’ve heard great things about the Sarah Chapman treatments, but their Exfoliating Booster has definitely piqued my interest. It works to clear clogged pores with a potent combination of lactic acid, willow bark and retinol, and the staff really convinced me on how much of a miracle worker this is on dull skin.
NUDE Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash (£38 here) – I’ve been looking for a gentle physical exfoliant for a while, and this one from NUDE looks lovely. It contains vanilla and rosehip to nourish, along with Vitamin C to brighten and bring out your natural glow. I can imagine this would be awesome in the summer time!
Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist (£46 here) – for a purely indulgent treat, I’ve got my heart set on the beautiful Omorovicza facial mist, containing a blend of neroli, rose, orange and sage. I’d love this as a perfume as well as a toner, and the packaging is seriously luxe!
OSKIA Renaissance Mask (£48.50 here) – as I’ve never tried OSKIA before, I’m very curious about their Renaissance Mask. The texture is soft and jelly-like, and it has a gorgeous floral-citrus scent that instantly lifts the spirits. It contains papaya to exfoliate and passion fruit, rose and chamomile to soften and brighten. I might just have to pick this up next week, seriously tempted!
NARS Audacious Mascara (£21 here) – the sales associate who I was chatting to in-store was so complimentary about this mascara, that I just had to add it to my wishlist. The thick plastic bristles are just the kind I love for very defined, voluminous and fake-looking lashes, whilst the trademark black NARS packaging is seriously chic.
By Terry Ombre Blackstar in 03 Blond Opal (£29 here) – I already own Misty Rock and Bronze Moon, but this champagne-gold shade is just the kind of all-over shade I love to wear for work, paired with a little winged liner and a nude-berry lip. The texture of these shadows is buttery-soft and a few swipes will stay put on my lids for at least eight hours!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure (£28 here) – I’m cheating slightly as I did end up purchasing this after my jaunt around the store. It’s the perfect mauve-nude blush with a hint of sheen, and a beautiful colour to wear everyday lightly on the apples, or built up to a greater intensity for an evening look. Review coming soon!
Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer (£38 here) – one of my favourite Youtubers Lily Melrose always raves about this concealer/foundation/pot of goodness, and it’s hard not to see why – it’s so creamy, rich and easy to blend, and the vast colour range means that there’s a shade for just about any skin tone.
Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette (£34 here) – last up is this pretty neutral eyeshadow palette from Becca. I love a good nude/bronze palette, and this ticks all the boxes for me. Sleek, pigmented and with just the right amount of colourful to everyday shades, it’s great to chuck in your handbag – and I’ll definitely be getting good use out of it when I purchase it around Christmas!
