Spring Lustlist | The Birthday Edit*

Hey beauties, 

So Spring is finally upon us, the Sun has come out of hibernation and there are no more beasts from the East, West or any direction in sight. YAY. Not to mention it's almost April (AKA my birthday month) when I'll be turning the ripe old age of 25. Basically I could not be happier right now. With each new season comes fabulous new beauty releases and as I feel like I'm pining over so many of them, I think it's time to do a little Lust List to get it all out my system.

Oh and for those of you that need some beauty present inspo... this one's for you! (April 23rd mark your calendars)

There are so many delicious perfume releases right now I swear. Fragrance is one of those gifts that's really tough to get wrong too, and as much as I have and love perfumes from bigger brands, I really enjoy finding more boutique perfumeries. Clive Christian is a brand I have my eye on right now, and they have some amazing luxury perfumes for him and her. Their packaging is so sleek and opulent and I can just imagine one of their gorgeous colognes sitting on my dressing table. So much care has been put into crafting each scent too, so these would make the most thoughtful gift!

As most of you know, I'm all about the glow all of the time. I literally cannot leave the house without some kind of highlighter or illuminator on my face. (Well I mean technically I could... I just don't want to.) Sometimes I'll opt for a subtle dewy glow; but there's nothing better than a highlight you can see from outer space, which is why I absolutely need the new Morphe X Bretman Rock collab in my life. The 'Babe in Paradise' palette comes with 6 STUH-NNING shades and a fan brush for £29 which I think is pretty darn-tooting fabulous. Plus B himself is one of my absolute favourite humans right now, and his make-up is always on point.

Ok so this next one's not totally beauty related, but it's absolutely flipping beautiful so I'm going to include it anyway! Crux London is a gorgeous jewellery brand that was introduced to me by Glitzbox last year, (Read my post on them here) and I've been lusting over their jewellery ever since. My favourite piece of theirs is the Crux Initial Necklace. They've created a gorgeous font inspired by constellations, which I think is such a fun twist on a normal initial necklace, yet still just as wearable.

Sorry what's that Izzy, Another highlighter? No, your eyes do not deceive you, it's true. (But this is a totally different product I swear..) I've been all aboard the Charlotte Tilbury train since I received the Naughty & Nice Magic Box for Christmas, and my two favourite products so far are the Magic Cream and Wonderglow. (You can read my first impressions on them here.) Charlotte's newest launch, her Hollywood Flawless Filter is essentially a primer, highlight and foundation all in one, so naturally I 100% need it in my life. The coverage looks sheer but dewy, and it gives such a radiance to the skin - and boy do I wanna be radiant.
Stila is a brand I've adored for years; their In The Light palette was my first ever high end beauty purchase when I was around 16. (I'm still gutted it was discontinued by the way). They've been killing it with their new releases lately and their Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadows are no exception. You just can't beat an easy, fuss-free makeup look, and that's what I feel like these Stila shadows achieve. One quick swipe over the lid, a little blending with your ring finger and you're done! Obviously I'm drawn to the gold and bronzey shades but I'd be very happy if any of them wanted to find their way into my make-up bag.

Last but definitely not least is Revolution Pro, the new brand from the wonderful Adam Minto, creator and owner of TAM beauty. I've been so lucky to have been on their event guestlists over the years, (Cause they know how to throw a party!) and at their Birthday Party last week they announced the Pro collection and demo'd a few of the products. I'm excited to get my hands on the Foundation drops and Concealers in particular and I love that Adam has remained true to his ethos of high quality, low price with this new range. The below is the Revolution Pro Concealer Palette Light Medium and would be an absolute staple in any MUA's collection! I feel like I just need it cause I'm the girl that gets roped into doing all of my friends make-up on nights out, so now I'll be ready!
What's on your beauty lust list this season? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Yesss the Stila shadows I have had my eye on too, I used my friends last month and it was SO amazing and pigmented I can't wait to get my hands on a few. The perfume sounds amazing and such a gorgeous bottle too! I'm the same with highlighter, got to love a good glow!

  2. Nobody will be any doubt over what to get you for your b-day after reading this post! I don't actually own a perfume at the moment so I'm going to go and check out Clive Christian's collections, I am agreed on how stunning that packaging is, opulent is absolutely the right word! I've heard so many good things about Stila makeup, including their eyeshadows but especially their lipsticks! I feel a splurge of my own coming on...


  3. I'm really intrigued about the Flawless Filter!! I'm a bit dubious about whether its worth the price tag though. Only one way to find out I guess :)

  4. ANYTHING by Charlotte Tilbury would be on my Beauty lust list! I really wanna try the Flawless Filter foundation!!
    So exciting that it is nearly your birthday month!! xox

  5. Omg! It's my birthday in 4 days and now I desperately want all of these things! Anything from CT will always make my wishlist! xx

  6. The Morphe Babe in Paradise palette looks absolutely incredible, I still haven't tried Morphe! I really want to pick up the CT Hollywood Filter too xx
