Spring and Summer Wishlist

Spring and Summer Wishlist 2016

Do you have an ever growing wishlist like I do? When there are many new releases, it is probably normal to want to try all of them, however, what if you’re on a spending ban? Well then your wishlist will be getting way longer than you would expect it to be, this is what’s happening to me! If I win the lottery, I know what I’ll be doing first… getting my spring and summer wishlist shorter!

Spring and Summer Wishlist

Days are getting longer and warmer; using sun protector and products with SPF is one of my main priorities. I wasn’t good to my skin before and I skipped applying sun protection as I wanted instant tan, I wish I hadn’t done that! When I change my skincare routine, I make sure to choose products with SPF so I will make sure that my skin is well protected and they come handy when I’m in a rush and forget to apply sun screen. L’occitane Precious Light Cream is one of these multipurpose products which aim to give smoother and firmer skin and also SPF20 for sun protection. It is a win-win situation!

Even though there are mixed reviews about NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint, it sounds like a perfect base for summer. In summer, I prefer matte bases with SPF protection as my skin gets really oily and this one ticks all the boxes, SPF30 protection is pretty good.

Summer look without glow wouldn’t be complete. I’ve been lusting for Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector and Hourglass Ambient Light Powder Palette like most of the people! Who wouldn’t want their imperfections blurred and also a little bit of glow? If you want these then you should also add these two products to your wishlist!

Are you attracted by the fancy shiny packaging? Well I am and Charlotte Tilbury doesn’t make things easier with her catchy shiny gold packaging. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Lost Cherry is a beautiful bright cherry pink red and it can be perfect spring colour. Spring and summer wishlist without a Charlotte Tilbury product wouldn’t be complete!

I like changing my perfumes depending on the season and my mood. Givenchy Live Irresistible is a new release and the scent description “A floral and fruity cocktail” got me wondering how good it must smell!

Do you also have Spring and Summer wishlist? What have you been lusting for?

Nail Polish Trends You Should Try In 2016
Wedding Hair and Makeup Inspirations
  • Ashley Christabelle

    I definitely want that Charlotte Tilbury lipstick. Such a gorgeous shade, perfect for summer and spring indeed!


    • I haven’t tried any CT products yet however they are on top of my list, especially lipsticks!

  • Sheridan Grady

    I reaaaally want to try the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint for the warmer months! I have heard such great things xx


    • It is on top of my list, I’ve heard a lot about it! x

  • My list is never-ending so I know how you feel. I’ve always wanted to try L’Occitane skincare products, but don’t even know where to begin. This cream sounds perfect for summer as I love the added SPF. You should definitely splurge on a CT lipstick, it’s just so luxurious x

    Beauty with charm

    • Hopefully someday soon I will splurge on CT products, there are so many thing I want to try out! x

  • The Hourglass palette and the NARS Velvet Matte foundation are on my wish list as well. But even without being on a spending ban my list is way too long, and I keep adding every day…

    Linda, Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

    • My list keeps getting longer and now I don’t know where to start or which ones I actually need!

  • My wishlist is also growing all the time, so I know perfectly what you mean 🙂 Becca Skin Perfector and Hourglass palette are on my wishlist as well. This season is all about luminous skin, such a big trend xx


    • For luminous skin Becca and Hourglass would be perfect 🙂 xx

  • Ooh nice wishlist, dying to try that primer too!

    Makeup Monster

  • I considered getting the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint as a spring/summer base, but eventually got La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur, which was much more affordable, and am very happy with it.
    CT Lost Cherry is on my wishlist too… I should really buy a lottery ticket soon! 😉

    • I tested La Roche BB blur one awhile ago and I really like the finish but I don’t really know how long lasting it would be.
      Ah lottery ticket and winning millions… *day dreaming*

  • I think the only thing I really want to try right now is the new Urban Decay tinted moisturizer/foundation. But I have many to get through so I won’t be buying it anytime soon. Or so I hope!
    The Matte Revolution lipsticks are amazing. So lightweight and long lasting! I was drawn to Lost Cherry too but it’s not a colour I’d wear often, went with Bond Girl instead.

    Advaita | Blush Canvas

    • I keep lusting for things and it makes my list gets longer, I should start getting the things I actually need!
      Bond Girl is a beautiful shade, I should try CT lippies on before actually buying them.

  • Nina

    Love the shade of this lipstick, and the palette look gorgeous. You have some amazing products on your wishlist.

  • The Givenchy perfume bottle is beautiful and I’d like to try the Nars skin tint

  • The lipstick sounds lovely what a great wishlist Ela. Gemma x

  • We always end up with wishlists as long as our arms! The Ambient Light palette is just gorgeous, and yes it’s not a surprise everybody wants it 😛 I love fancy packaging too, and CT lipsticks are so pretty and Lost Cherry is a perfect shade for spring/summer. Hopefully you’ll get one or two of these items and tick them off your wishlist! 😉

    • Since the wedding is over and I have some money left on my account, I can just splurge on the things I want to try out 🙂 x

  • Great list! My wishlist is never-ending! xx


  • Ela, you have a high end wish list! LOL All of those are fabulous! There’s ALWAYS something I want. I’m always asking myself, when will enough be ENOUGH! There’s always some shade variation that helps justify the purchase. HAHAHA I purchased two Laura Mercier illuminators. I heard the CT foundation is really good.

    • When there are so many new releases, I keep wanting them all so I know my list will never go shorter ha ha!

  • Dang girl, you have a very expensive taste! Haha!The two things that I really want is any CT lipsticks and Hourglass Ambient palette. I was curious about Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint but I think it wouldn’t look good on my dry skin. 🙁

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • Since the wedding is over, I need to splurge myself 🙂 I had enough stress so some of these expensive goodies must be mine ha ha 🙂

  • Great picks, I really want to try Hourglass but they products are quite pricey x


  • I really want to try the NARS Velvet matte tint too but I’m worried about the coverage! Would love to see a review if you do end up getting it!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

    • I was about to get it, however they didn’t have my shade in stock… just my luck! I will check the store again and hopefully this time they will have my shade!

  • Thanks for your great wishlist. I could not find Givenchy Live Irresistible for a while. I need this.


  • All these products looks sooo good! But that givenchy perfume is my favourite, I’m already looking forward to see the review of the products you’re going to buy (I hope they are all of them haha)


    • Ha ha, I hope I can get them all 🙂 I should just get a lottery ticket and see if I can win millions 🙂

  • Ohh I want all of them!!





  • Yeah, I also love these!

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    Such lovely picks, hun! I’m lusting over those Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks – like yourself, I’m very drawn to lovely packaging and those lippies look just so stunning! Heard some fab things about the formula, also, so I’d definietly like to get my hands on them. 🙂 As for the Live Irresistible perfume… I like it, the bottle is cute, but I’m not crazy about it. A fruity cocktail is a pretty good description, although I find it to be quite watery and more on the fresh/floral side. I LOVE the tropical pineapple note in it, it’s super exotic and so juicy… However, the longevity of the fragrance is really bad (about one, two hours?) which is what’s stopped me from purchasing a full bottle myself… If you do get your hands on it, though, I’d absolutely love to hear your thoughts on it! 🙂 <3 Kisses. x x


    • Ah if it is that short lasting, I will definitely stay away from it! I don’t want to pay so much just to get disappointed! Charlotte Tilbury products are on my wishlist for quite a long time, I don’t want to splurge on anything without giving it a try, so I am still waiting 🙂 Kisses <3 xx

  • Karina Guimarães Ribeiro

    The Hourglass Ambient Light Powder Palette is a dream, looks so good on the skin! Unfortunately the price is not so good. XX


  • I just ordered that Velvet Matte Skin Tint from Nars! Can’t wait to see how I like it! 🙂

    Thirteen Thoughts

    • Can’t wait to read your review about it! I am still waiting to get it, last time I checked the store, they didn’t have my shade 🙁

  • I really want something from Charlotte Tilbury, amybe a foundation. I absolutely adore her work, personality and make-up range x
    Yukova Blog

    • She is adorable! There are so many things I want to try out from CT, I don’t know where to start with! x

  • I’m intrigued by the Nars velvet Skin Tint as well and the CT lipstick in Lost Cherry is on my wish list too, haha! I had a sample of that Givenchy perfume and it was so nice, perfect for Summer! x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • Last time I checked the store, they didn’t have my shade and hopefully when I check it next time, they will have it so I can fully test Velvet skin tint! x

  • Katie

    I’m not sure how the Nars Velvet matte skin tint would work for my dry skin, but I also love a glow for the warmer months! Tons of highlighters are on my wish list x


    • It is suitable for oily/combination skin, so if you have dry skin, you better stay away from it! x

  • I highly highly recommend the Becca primer and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. Those two are some of my most used products especially if I want a gorgeous glow, which is always lol!

    Nida | Caked To The Nines

    • I am hoping that one day, they go on sale and I can pick a few bits 🙂 x

  • Christine K

    Great choices! I use the hourglass ambient palette all the time and I just ordered the becca primer during the VIB sale at sephora this past week! I just received the bottle and cannot wait to try it out!
    I’m also lusting over the CT lipstick!


    • I missed the VIB sale, so I am still waiting! Hopefully next time, I can grab myself at least a few things I really want to try out!

  • Ellie Adams

    Charlotte Tilbury lost cherry looks like the most perfect summer colour. And the Becca shimmering skin perfectors are so gorgeous aren’t they!


  • Oh, everything on your list looks lovely, especially the CT lippie.
    I’m currently on y buy ban, so EVERYTHING goes to my wishlist!

    Nati | New post on Polished Polygot

    • I was also on a spending ban because of the wedding, so since it is over my ban can be over 🙂

  • I have been wanting a CT lippie for forever, I really do need to take the plunge, the shade you’ve got there looks fab for the upcoming seasons. I really want to try and get my hands on Stoned Rose or Birkin Brown I think its called ♥


    • I need to try these products before actually buying them. I don’t want to spend so much money on one thing and end up never using it!

  • That Hourglass palette looks divine! Thanks for sharing this! xx


  • Lost Cherry looks really beautiful! So spring ☺
    Nati xx

  • My wish list is always ever expanding lol The becca liquid highlighter is also on my wish list! I think I may just buy the travel size to try it out 🙂


    • If I can find the mini size then I can at least give it a try. I can’t really finish products, so travel size would be perfect for me 🙂

  • Corinne C

    Oh god, all the hourglass products are stunning! On my wish list for sure.

    Corinne x

  • Becky Hughff

    I so badly need to get my hands on CT products this Spring!

    Becca | theBeautyInbox

    • I tested it and it was great! I wish they had had my shade, I need to check it again!

  • Diana Horsfall
  • Ii also use that L’occitane Precious Night Cream on a daily basis, love their products so much. For me as a beautician it is so important to have and use good quality products and L’occitane is one of them, because they really strive to use high-quality, traceable, natural ingredients which are great for any kind of skin!
    Have a nice Friday! 🙂

    • L’occitane products are really good, I need to try more products from them! Have a great week 🙂 x

  • I tried a cream from L`Occitane in the past and it was so good. I am currently on a spending ban, but when I finish it I have quite a few makeup bits on my wishlist.


    • Spending bans are the worst, it makes the wishlist longer 🙁

  • Kathryn

    I have the Hourglass products on my wishlist too!
