To Buy or Not To Buy...

 

The beauty market is saturated with products - new releases, cult classics, undiscovered treasures, international must haves...there's a lot to chose from.  I'm sure it's pretty clear from this blog that I'm a huge beauty fan....always have been.  In fact, the  first thing I bought with my first ever salary was a Dior lipstick from Jenners in Edinburgh - I loved the fact that I could afford to be so sophisticated at just 16.  It wasn't a spontaneous buy though, far from it....I had really thought hard about what lipstick from what brand was to be given the pleasure of my first self-funded purchase.

Twenty years on and this hasn't changed.  I love reading about beauty products and am pretty experimental with what I'll try (yes, I succumbed to the trend of hair mascaras when that was a thing!) and  at the moment it's innovations, collaborations and time savers that get my attention.  I genuinely keep a little 'wish list' of what I'm interested in and buy it when either I've finished that type of product and need something new or, I just need a little self gift!

Today, I thought I'd share my current wish list with you; skincare, makeup and everything else....
