So after abandoning my blog for the past week to focus on exams and uni work, I'm finally free form education (for a week anyway) and can get back to my regular blogging schedule. January has been pretty stressful for me with an assignment and two exams in my final year at university, I haven't had the time to focus on my blog as much as I like. I now have a whole free week before my semester 2 units start and the assignment and exams begin all over again. I'm off home for the weekend to relax and for my boyfriend's 21st birthday and to get some blogging done finally.

Today's post is my first wishlist of 2016 and some amazing products that have really hit my radar recently. I love compiling wish lists of beauty products I'm after so if I'm feeling spendy and want to treat myself I can tick one off the list. In 2016 there have already been some amazing beauty releases and Anastasia Beverly Hills have brought out some dreamy products.

This palette has been all over my Instagram and Twitter recently and it needs to enter my beauty collection soon. I'm a massive sucker for anything shimmery that can leave my face perfectly glowing and this is the perfect collection to do just that. My favourite out of the two palettes has to be That Glow with a quad of 4 perfect highlighters; Sunburst (shimmery gold), Bubbly (Champagne Rose), Dripping in Gold (lavish gold) and Golden Bronze (warm bronze). If anyone knows where this is easily available in the UK please let me know as this is a must have.

This beauty has been on my wishlist for some time now and I had hoped it would be under the christmas tree for me (unfortunately santa didn't leave it for me this year). Part of the Steven Klein collection and exclusive to SpaceNK i'm always scared i'll be on the website one day and it will be sold out! The palette includes two contouring powders, the famous Laguna bronzer and then 4 blushers. I've yet to try any NARS blushers or bronzer but heard nothing but good reviews so I need to add this to my collection.

Oh what a beautiful product! Whilst I know this product has been out for a while now it's really something thats been on my radar recently after seeing the amazing shimmer it leaves people with. Created with Becca by the famed beauty youtuber Jaclyn Hill, the buttery champagne powder has all the rights things; intense shimmer, velvet texture and light as a feather to apply. This is yet another limited edition product so I need to add it to my collection soon before its gone forever.

When I bought my CT Magic Foundation back in November the counter assistant tested it on my face using this brush and I was immediately amazed. It applied the foundation flawlessly and left a seamless finish and the brush was super soft. I have been hunting this brush down for a while and it only seems to be available on John Lewis, so I think I may have to purchase soon. Priced at £45.00 its a little on the pricey side compared to what id normally spend on a brush but it was just amazing.

Oh Tom Ford why do you have to be so expensive?! These Tom Ford eye quads have really been catching my eye recently. The nude quad have 4 complementing shades which would be perfect for creating a smokey look. The palettes also have 4 different finishes; sparkle, satin, shimmer and matte. If I could have all of these I would, but I really can't justify over £60 for 4 eyeshadows!

When it comes to primers I'm always on the hunt for something to give my makeup that extra staying power. I've become a bit of an hourglass fan recently after my purchase of the Ambient Lighting Edit (post here) and this primer is constantly on others blog posts about how good it is. The mineral based primer has an SPF15 in it t prevent any sun damage and leaves the skin with an irresistibly smooth canvas for foundation application.

Oh Anastasia, you absolute queen of eyebrows! I already have her DipBrown Pomade and it's one of my favourite products in my collection and leaves my brows flawless. Brow Definer which was released recently has an angled tip for effortlessly defining brows and a brush at the end to hide away those strays. This has been 2 years in the making and some of the videos i've seen on instagram of the application seem flawless.
