Currently lusting after...

MAC Face and Body Foundation.
£23 for 120ml/4 fl oz
This probably isn't that much of a surprise as most of the blogging world has been going crazy over this foundation so it seems, and as I am a total cosmetics sheep I am following suit! I have suffered terrible skin in the past so I've always stuck to medium/full coverage foundations, but since its cleared up quite a bit (still by no means perfect), I sometimes feel too 'made up' wearing heavy foundations on a day to day basis. From the reviews I have read this seems perfect; a natural flawless dewy finish, that looks like you aren't even wearing foundation!! I am hoping to pick this up soon so a review will most definitely follow.
I've been hearing a lot about this brand for a while now, however as the only store here in the UK is nearly 200 miles away from me, it's not too easy for me to get my mitts on them just yet. They now have a website, so you can drool over the goodies they have to offer but still can't order them online yet :(. I really want to try one of the freedom system palettes!!

Long, volumised, textured hair.

For me Cheryl Cole epitomises this look.

Long loose effortless tousled waves. My hair is feeble in comparison! I've tried all the tutorials and tips but somehow I just can't manage it. I'm thinking of investing in some good quality clip-in hair extensions to hopefully help achieve this look, I've been looking into the likes of HeadKandy and HelloGorgeous which seem to be the best around on the net judging on reviews, anyone got any other recommendations?

What are you currently lusting after ?
