Currently Coveting #2

In good old traditional blogger style I find myself reverting back to one of the more classic types of post; the good old fashioned wish list. These have always been of an interest to me when it comes to reading other blogs, therefore I thought it may be nice to share with you some of the current products that I have being reading about lately.

The first product is the odd one out, that being the Cambridge Satchel Medium Push Lock bag in this beautiful deep wine colour. For the longest time I have wanted to own my own Cambridge Satchel as they are so well crafted and are of a classic design. This one actually popped into their sale and left it rather quickly, too quickly in fact for me to take advantage of that so perhaps I will wait a little bit longer before I finally pick one up. 

From Kiehl’s there is a new product which has just launched, I spotted this on their Instagram feed the other day and it immediately caught my attention. The Cilantro and Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Mask defends against impurities and also replenishes the skin with vital nutrients. Whilst I will admit to not trying much from Kiehl’s thus far, this product certainly intrigues me due to the fact that I commute a lot during the week; I dread to think of the pollution from the cars and trains that I am exposed to each day. 

Chanel Boy from the Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick range has been on my lipstick radar for a little while now. However for some reason whenever I go to see it for myself in store it never seems to be in stock; it must be quite a popular shade given that I have popped along three times and each time have not been able to swatch it for myself.

From Space NK I have picked out two products, both of which have received their fair share of hype over the last six months or so. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette looks beautiful in store and from all the reviews online it certainly lives up to the hype. There’s no denying that these products are more on the expensive side of things, however I do plan on picking this up in the next couple of months, although I may be tempted to buy one full size one as opposed to this set of three. The majority of products on Space NK lean towards the high end bracket, therefore it comes as no surprise that the Sunday Riley Luna Oil is expensive. I will admit to being very close to purchasing this just after Christmas, however I did think better of it at the time. I am extremely reluctant to pay out for this without having tried a sample before, something of which my local Space NK store never quite seem to be able to provide me with as they never have a tester bottle on display. 

The Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist has been mentioned within a wish list before and it currently still remains on it as I haven’t yet got around to picking it up. I know a couple of people who really enjoy using this and their recommendations have to date always seen me well, therefore it is about time I finally purchased it. 

It is quite unusual for me to feature a base product as I rarely start to fall for the hype surrounding them. Whilst I would not say that there is a great deal of hype surrounding the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light I would say that what I have read from a number of trusty sources is that this is a great base. Unlike most beauty enthusiasts I have never tried the cult Double Wear foundation, as to me it seems as though it would be just too thick for my personal preference and skin type. Having said that I am extremely interested in trying this lighter version as it sounds like it would be much more suitable for me.

Have you tried any of the above products?
