Urban Retreat Beautique Wishlist

Urban Retreat is the online beauty destination for all things luxury. Not only can you book appointments at one of their beautiful salons including their flagship location on the top floor of Harrods but they also offer a beauty therapy service that will come to your home. Alongside their salons they have an online store Beautique which beauty addicts will love, it offers a really fantastic selection of cult luxurious brands from Sisley, NARS to CoverFX. They sell a wide range of hair, makeup, fragrance and skincare which have been carefully curated so you are getting some of the biggest names in beauty right now.

Urban Retreat Beautique Wishlist

I have been having a browse through their selection and I’ve put together a wish list of products I love the look of.

NARS Velvet Shadow Stick

I am a shadow stick addict and use them most days, they’re so easy to apply especially if you are in a hurry. I like that you can blend them with your finger and they don’t crease. These NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks look right up my street and they come in a really wearable selection of colours.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit 

I think I must be the only beauty blogger on the planet that doesn’t own this beautiful palette. Its just stunning, you get an edit of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders all housed in beautiful rose gold packaging. Whats not to love?! I have only heard incredible things about this palette and their powders in general.

Cover FX Face and Eye Primer Se

I have tried a few products from CoverFX and I’ve never been disappointed. I like the sound of this primer set and especially the eye primer. I’m always looking for products that help keep my makeup in place and looking its best for longer and I think these could be the perfect duo.

GLAMGLOW Bright Mud Eye Treatment

I love the popular GLAMGLOW Mud Mask that comes in the black pot so would be intrigued to try a few more of their products. These Eye Treatments sound soothing and perfect for combating early mornings.

Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Hair Oil

I seem to neglect my hair when it comes to pampering but this Diamond Oil range from Redken sounds like it will transform my hair in to glossy, more manageable locks. With it being so cold outside this treatment oil would be great to help strengthen and protect hair from breakage. I must admit I adore the packaging too!


I have tried this treatment before and liked it for applying through the ends of my hair. This is quite a pricey hair treatment but a bottle lasts what feels like forever. Another great haircare product to have in your arsenal.

Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink 

I just can’t resist highlighters and think these Shimmer Bloc’s are just gorgeous, I already have the Golden one and its just beautiful. I think this Pink one would get a lot more wear because it would serve as a blush too (if you applied it with a light hand).

NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Adoration

Another beautiful blush, I have only tried two blushers from NARS and they get a lot of use but this Dual Intensity range looks on another level pretty. These are designed to wear alone of together for more intense colour. There are 7 options and I would honestly take any of them, they all look stunning.

Leighton Denny Pretty Little Things

This year I have got back into wearing nail polish and have been enjoying my Sunday night at home manicures. Leighton Denny is one of my favourite nail polish brands and this cute trio is bright and fun, it also reminds me Spring is just around the corner.

Chanteccaille Lip Chic 

I have never owned anything from this brand but think these Lip Chic lippies look stunning & what a great colour selection. Also if like me you wished your lips were a little fuller then these have added collagen to give lips a plumping boost. Which colour would you pick?

Foreo LUNA

This is a PINK (love the colour) nonabrasive cleansing tool, I have a Clarisonic and use that a lot but I’m always intrigued by other options. This is a rounded silicone touch-points glide across the face for ultra-gentle cleansing that gives you healthier-looking skin within just 3 days. It comes in a selection of cute colours and its petite enough to travel with so that could be very handy indeed. Let me know if you have tried this cleanser and if you’d recommend it.

If you like to use more luxurious products and enjoy shopping online then I recommend stopping by the Beautique’s online store. You will be filling your basket in no time.

American Wishlist

OK so I’m sure most, if not all of you are aware that I’m going to San Fransisco next week. I am so very excited. I have been there before 7 years ago and I’m excited to go back. It is such a beautiful city and the shopping is amazing. So in honour of that I’ve put together a few things I hope to buy whilst I’m out there.

USA Wishlist

1. Sephora CC Cream 30ml $26 – I’m yet to try a CC cream so I thought whilst I was In America I would get this Sephora one. I have quite a lot of redness in my cheeks so I’m hoping this helps cancel that out.

2. Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette – In The Nude $26 for 10 shadows – This baked palette is right up my street. I love the texture and finish of baked shadows and these are all quite neutral colours and they are what I tend to reach for most often. This palette gets quite good reviews and I am excited to swatch it.

3. Makeup Forever Mist & Fix Spray 125ml for $29 – I am running low on my Mac Fix + and I wan to try something new. I’m undecided whether to get this Makeup Forever Spray or the Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray.

4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush $26 – I have my eye on a couple of colours, Tipsy, Blushing Bride and Dollface. So we will see which ones I buy once I’m there. I have heard great things about these so I am very excited to finally try them out.

5. Marc Jacobs Rollerball Trio $38 – OK so I may be a little too excited to get a few rollerballs whilst I am in Sephora. I have no idea why these don’t get released in the UK & I hope this changes in the future. But I will be stocking up on a fair few. Along with this Daisy set I also want to try the Fresh Beauty Set.

6. Tarte Tinted BB Treatment $34 – This is meant to be a moisturiser, primer, light foundation, antiageing treatment, and sunscreen all in one so that’s some big claims. I will put it to the test!

7. Maybelline Baby Lips $2.99 – I have 2 of these already and love them so will buy a few more but the picture of these in my wish list really represents the fact that I want to go to some American Pharmacies or Drugstores to buy a few things. Especially a few Wet n Wild things and some of the Drew Barrymore line Flower Cosmetics. I am so excited to go to Target & Wallgreens.

If you have any must have US beauty buy suggestions for me – please let me know!
