The Monthly Crave #2

Well its reached that time of the month again where I share with you all a few things that I have been craving recently.

I have to admit that this months wants have been quite heavily influenced by seeing what other bloggers have bought! Stacey from Expat Make-Up Addict I'm looking at you!

First up is the Hour Glass Ambient lighting palette, this little beauty is limited edition and contains three of the highly rated and raved about Hour Glass ambient light finishing powders. It has two of the existing shades Dim Light and Radiant Light and the new limited edition shade Incandescent Light. I think this trio is perfect if you want to try the powders out and I love the different options it gives you making it very versatile. It also comes with a mini of the veil mineral primer adding to my justification of purchase! I have a feeling this will be in my shopping basket come pay day!

 Next is the Dior full coverage foundation brush, Dior's description is :-

"For use with fluid and cream foundations, the DIOR Full Coverage Fluid Foundation Brush has innovative fibres combining synthetic responsiveness with natural softness. Both layered and sharpened, these fibres help blend the foundation for fast, easy application. The brush head is denser and beveled in order to blend in a greater quantity of foundation and obtain a high coverage yet totally natural and radiant finish".

I saw this on Stacey's post 6 brushes to love and it looks like it will be right up my street! I like to have a good coverage on my foundation as I don't have the best skin so this ticks all my boxes!

Something else I have had my eye on is the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This is another much blogger loved product that I can only seem to find good reviews on. It is meant to leave your skin glowing and refreshed which is something I could do with especially with winter drawing in, so I think this would make a great addition to my little skincare stash.

Mac are releasing the Divine Night collection on the 7th of November and I have my eye on two of the Lipsticks in the collection Flair for Finery which is a cool pink nude in a lustre finish and Private Party a dirty plum mauve in a satin finish.

Both of these Mac shades are lovely in the pictures I have seen and swatches on the internet but I will be swatching myself to make sure they suit my colouring before purchase (although I am always suckered in by the pretty limited edition packaging, so there is every chance I could end up buying online before swatching, oops!)

I have also been looking at these beautiful earrings from Bouton.  I love the jewellery they have on their site especially the charm bracelets, I never really clicked with Pandora but I like the Bouton ones. I think the button detail is very cute and individual and I just like the feel of the brand, it has an air of class about it.
My final crave this month has been for a DSLR Camera. I've had my eye on the Canon EOS 1100D from Amazon it has a really good price and has good reviews as far as I can see, so I shall be dropping some major hints to my Mr for this to make its way into my hands!  Phil if you are by any chance reading this you know what time of year is just around the corner and I have been a very good girl this year, hint hint!
