Lust List: Fawn-Worthy Items for Fall 2012

As fall quickly approaches, I find myself browsing around online to find the best beauty products to take my hair, skin, and body into the next season gracefully, especially since season changes tend to throw my body a bit out of balance. Therefore, I really like to look for products that are a bit more nourishing than the light summer ones I’ve been using as well as some fuller coverage makeup which I can actually get away with wearing in the winter. Aside from that, I’ve found some new products as well that just seem like they would be great to try!

Check out my latest in beauty lust below!

SHAMPOO ALMOND & LINESEED 250ml

Korres Almond & Linseed Shampoo for Dry / Damaged Hair; € 12,50

With all the Summer sun, heat, and humity, my hair has taken a literal beating. It looks constantly frazzled, tangled and feels brittle and prone to breakage more than usual. It also feels a lot more fine than normal due to the dryness, despite having a lot of hair so I really want some hair products that nourish and rejuvenate my locks in a natural way.

MASK ALMOND & LINESEED 125ml

Korres Almond & Linseed Nourishing Hair Mask for Dry Hair; € 14,50

Goldfaden Revolution Eye Serum; $80

I can only use eye gels and super light eye creams during the Summer so I look forward to Winter because I can get away with a lot more for my skin and use more hydrating and nourishing serums, especially under my eyes. This one includes a short list of ingredients, all naturally derived to improve the eye are by brightening, firming and calming.

POMEGRANATE FOUNDATION PF1

Korres Pomegranate Foundation; € 29,30

I’m not really sure why we don’t seem to have this in the USA, but I’d gladly import it! It utilizes pomegranate and other natural ingredients to give the skin a natural medium and matte coverage. I really love Korres, but I haven’t seen any makeup that would suit my skin type as of yet. I didn’t even know they offered this until I discovered it on their site, but now it’s on my list!

Travel Set

Living Nature Body & Hair Essentials Kit; $34

Ever since I tried their Skin Essentials Kit & Radiance Night Oil (see reviews here), I’ve been dying to experience their other products to see if they are wonderful as well! Given that they utilize rare ingredients found only in New Zealand, I’m super curious to try them out and see!

Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream; $48

I was super excited when I discovered this one on SkinStore.Com because it’s combining several loves all at once – natural ingredients, BB creams, & custom shades! Also, don’t write this off if you’re a bit on the darker side, they actually offer this BB in quite a few shades so even if you’re on the tanner side of things, you might be able to find a shade that suits you!

10ml

Living Nature Soothing Manuka Honey Gel; $22

FEI’D Hyper-pigmentation Serum; $60

I have been hearing about this one for awhile so I think it’s new. It’s supposed to help fade scars and discoloration using natural licorice, mulberry and bearberry as well as other Chinese herbs instead of the harsh kojic acid or hydroquinone.

Skin Rescue Shower Gelee

Max Green Alchemy Skin Rescue Shower Gelee; $14.99

If you’ve been here since the inception of this blog, you might know about my love turned obsession with all things Max Green Alchemy! If not, check out my reviews for the Skin Rescue Cream, their Scalp Rescue Shampoo & Conditioner, and the Elemeni Face Oil to see how awesome they are!

Christophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask; $64

Living Nature Concealer; $30

You may have read my review on the Neutrogena Concealer (if not, see here). Ever since I discovered how awesome that one is, I really have been searching for a more natural replacement because, as much as I love the formula, I want something that will be a little kinder to my skin, especially under my eyes where the first signs of aging show up!

Korres - Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara

Korres Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara; $20

Now available at Sephora, this mascara by Korres looks amazing! I’m always on the lookout for more natural eye products because anything you put near your eyes should be as natural and gentle as possible. That being said, I still haven’t found anything that beats the magic that is Diorshow Extase Mascara (see my review for it here).

Age Delay Cleansing Oil

Alpha-H Age Delay Cleansing Oil; $49.95 AUD

Again, if you’ve been following for awhile, you may know about my newfound devotion to Alpha-H (if not, check out my reviews here). I’m also currently testing out the Liquid Gold (OMG!) which I am loving and which deserves it’s own post. 😉 Anyway, I discovered this new cleansing oil from Alpha-H while browsing their site and it looks pretty lovely as it includes rose hip and tangerine in the formula.

Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil

Max Green Alchemy Skin Rescue Blooming Bath Oil; $9.99

This looks amazing for fall and winter bath treatments! Especially since I recently began doing Insanity, I find myself wanting to take baths more to soothe sore muscles and this seems like just the thing to keep my skin hydrated and my muscles and mind relaxed.

94 LIGHT GREY

Korres Myrrh & Oligoelements Nail Colour in Light Grey; € 8,00

I didn’t even know they carried nail colours, did you?

This one looks really lovely for fall and I was reading that all of their nail colours include natural ingredients that boost hydration, are anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal, and that increase keratin levels and keep nails healthy instead of normal polishes which tend to make nails brittle and dry.

i Profumi di Firenze – Arancio di Sicilia; $99

Ever since sampling the Plenilunio scent (see review here), I have been eyeing all the others! This one is especially desirable because my last name is Sicilia and I’m Italian and well, I want it! So there. 🙂

So that’s all so far on my Fall Lust List, what’s on yours?
