Weekend wishlist #8

wants 8

1) Cheap Monday Howin Tail Back Shirt - Urban Outfitters - £60 
2) Look Make Me Blush in 'Flirt' - Look Beauty/Superdrug - £8 (currently £4) 
3) Look Colour Correct Primer - Look Beauty/Superdrug £12 (currently £6 via LB)
4) Vintage 80s Chunky Chain Necklace - Urban Outfitters - £16 
5) Jade Shoes - Nelly - £19.95
6) Vaseline in Pink Bubbly - Selfridges - £3.49 
7) Eye Shadow in Nylon - Mac - £12

1) This lovely sheer number from Urban Outfitters is so beautiful! I have a thing for dipped hems or shirts and dresses in general with longer backs at the moment. Worn with tight black jeans, this would create a great look for day or night matched with appropriate accessories. I'm definitely on the lookout for something like this with a smaller price tag!

2) I've always been interested in trying out Look Beauty products however none of my local Superdrugs stock them, I also wouldn't like to order them online without swatching in store. So I guess I'm in a bit of a predicament here! Online, however, Look Beauty products are currently half price so I'm contemplating making the purchase of this blush in 'Flirt'; I've seen numerous reviews and swatches online and it looks like such a perfect reddish coral colour.

3) Again, with the 50% off is it worth trying out this colour correct primer? I have quite a bit of redness so this would be great for balancing my skin tone out before applying my make up. I haven't read many reviews on this, so have any of you guys tried this or heard anything good or bad about this product? 

4) A big, bulky, chunky, oversized necklace like every single weekend wishlist. I don't feel I need to elaborate really.

5) How lovely are these shoes! They're under £20 and would look fantastic with a pair of skinny jeans. I don't tend to wear heels too often but these are a nice height and they just look so classic.

6) A new limited edition Vaseline, yey! I've literally just run out of the creme brulee Vaseline which I have been obsessed with ever since I picked it up in Boots about a year ago. In fact, I've been obsessed with Vaseline's lip therapy tins since I can remember. In high school everyone used to have the original blue tins, if I remember correctly, then it was cool to have the green one then the rose one etc. I can't think back at a time where I haven't had at least one in my bag at all times! I'm definitely picking this up in the next week or so, yum!

7) Not a very exciting want here but it's something I ran out of a while ago and have been missing ever since. Mac's eye shadow in Nylon is a shade I wear under my brows as a highlighter and in the corners of my eyes. It's such a gorgeous icy gold shade with just the right amount of shimmer. Recently I've been using Topshop's highlighter in Sunbeam to highlight my eye area but it's just too gold and definitely works better on my cheekbones and run down the middle of my nose. I need to repurchase this asap, hurry up student loan!
