March Lust Haves and Must Haves

Hello Lovelies!

Today I thought I'd start a new monthly feature which are my lust haves and must haves! The lust haves are those expensive high end things that I'm currently coveting, but am unlikely to be able to buy for myself at the moment and the must haves are the budget alternatives/dupes which I don't feel too guilty about treating myself to!

LUST HAVE- Benefit Coralista blush £23.50

After my lovely friend Alex used this blusher on me for a night out last week it's been at the top of my high end make up wish list, however I've found a dupe for it from MeMeMe cosmetics who offer a lot of high end alternatives, so I think I'll be giving that a go in the mean time (meantime being whilst I'm poor and it's no where near my birthday, which is pretty much all the time haha)...

MUST HAVE- MeMeMe cosmetics Blush Me! Coral Blush Box £8.50

Blush Me! Blush Box
LUST HAVE- Moroccan oil £30.45 from salons

I've wanted this for so long now after hearing too many times what a miracle worker it is for over processed and tired hair, so it excites me greatly that Aldi are now selling a dupe for a fraction of the price which I'm going to try and get my hands on tomorrow...

MUST HAVE- Miracle oil £3.99 from Aldi

LUST HAVE- Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish 200ml Starter Kit £25.50

100ml pump starter kit

I've recently been feeling the need to up my skincare routine which pretty much currently only consists of facial wipes (naughty I know!) and Liz Earle's skincare range seems an obvious choice as it's been raved about all over the beauty blogasphere! However, I think I'll be trying this Superdrug alternative to see if it works for me before I go and spend that daunting £25.50...

MUST HAVE- Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser 200ml £5.99

LUST HAVE- Models Own Nail Polish in 'Fuzzy Peach' £5 

Okay so Models Own nail polish isn't exactly going to break the bank with it's £5 price tag, but if I can save £2 by getting the same shade in Barry M nail paint then why not...

MUST HAVE- Barry M Nail Paint in 'Peach Melba' £2.99

LUST HAVE- American Apparel Disco Pants £70

After seeing claudiakitten and lucy-boots look amazingly cool in their disco pants I've been dying to get my hands on some, but at £70 I think I'm going to have to make do with some good wet look leggings like these ones from Topshop (or failing that scour ebay for a disco pant discount!)...

MUST HAVE- Topshop Wet Look Leggings £18 

So there you go, I hope you enjoyed my March lust haves and must haves list, I'll keep you posted if and when I actually get my hands on any of these little beauties!

What are your current lust haves and must haves? Have you tried any of the products in this post?

I've just had a nice chilled out day at home making the most of having a warm house, comfy sofa and full cupboards! I'm going back to work at the library tomorrow though so I won't be spending the entire holiday doing nothing haha!

I hope you've all enjoyed having another day of sunshine!
Love Meg

  3. Also did you see this post of mine? About amazing Disco Pant dupes from ebay? Near identical!

  4. Great post, I have the mememe blush it's pretty good! I really want to try that oil from Aldi now!! x

  5. Coralista is one of my faves, and if I had her body I'd buy myself a pair of Disco leggings as well :)

  6. Amazing post! Love the look of that aldi hair oil; and that blush! I just bought some disco pants with an asos flash sale - they have them so often - got them for £45 instead of £70 :) yaaay, bargains! :) xo

  7. Thanks for the lovely comments girls! I've checked out hose fake disco pants and I really want some now! Also I'm very jealous of you babyface :p xxx

  8. Love this post ! I want the disco pants so bad ! Love how you have found a dupe for Morrocan oil as well!... BUYING!! xoxo

  9. Love this post, I've been meaning to buy morrocan oil for a while so will try this alternative first. I alos love benefit blushes! x

  10. Love your blog, new follower! those leggins are gorgeous!
    check out my blog please? X

  11. Love the post idea hun :) Coralista is my fave blush ever :)

  12. I've wanted to try out Moroccanoil since I only heard positive stuff about it. Don't think you need it though because your hair looks healthy and isn't that long. :-)

  13. great post! Must try the aldi dupe x

  14. I use Coralista, bella bamba and 10. And I still have yet to purchase Dandelion, Dallas, Georgia and Hoola. They are amazing powders. They feel really heavy though, I've noticed. I don't know why. I wish Coralista didn't have so much shimmer though! I really don't need that much. If you like Coralista, try Stila's gerbera convertible color, it's a cream blush.

    I've also bought the Moroccan Oil you posted up there. I don't know why I find it weird to see that up there, probably b.c I've never seen it on a blog. Anyway, you are supposed to blow dry it into your hair if you're straightening but since I never straighten I barely use it. I started using it on my curls though so they shine more and tone down frizz after curling. But make sure you only use a dime size amount, rub it into your hands really good then kind of smooth over curls (the less product the better result).

    The oil does make your hair look shinier and glossier and is great for blowouts, if you sometimes have dry looking hair after you blowout.

    XX Blissss

  15. Thanks for all the lovely comments and tips ladies! xxx
