Current Wishlist: Fashion and Beauty

A girl can dream, right?

I’ve been on a very low-buy for the past month (and plan on keeping it that way through all of December!), so I could focus my spending on others! I really love trying to find the perfect gift for my family and friends, and I happened across a few things I’d also love in the process of shopping too. I sometimes like to document these items to come back to in a month or two and see if I’m still drooling over them!

Asos Design Pleated Midi Skirt – orange, satin, pleats. Enough said?

Patchology FlashPatch Illuminating Eye Gels – these feel so luxurious and I’m not always super consistent with eye care, but these 5 minute masks couldn’t be easier.

Kendra Scott Sophee Drop Earrings in Silver – I received these in a Rocksbox a few months back and seriously regret not buying them then! They go with tons of different options, are large, yet dainty, and I’m trying to incorporate more silver into my jewelry wardrobe since my engagement ring is platinum.

Tory Burch Greer Mini Bag – fun for the holidays or just to jazz up a plain jeans and t-shirt outfit. I love the petite size and buckle detail.

Vapour Organic Beauty Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss – I basically want this yummy-smelling gloss in every shade, but I love Tickle and Flirt especially. Vapour is my favorite clean make-up brand too.

Voluspa Birthday Cake Macaron Candle – these candles make such great gifts and I love this sweet scent. The throw is impressive and the jars are quite beautiful.

Mejuri Moon Necklace – a beautiful, dainty piece that can worn every day but isn’t boring. I love the subtle sparkle and think it would layer well with other necklaces I already own.

Slip SlipSilk Pillowcase – I’ve read so many great things about these dreamy pillowcases and I do “suffer” from face creases since I’m a side/stomach sleeper. They’re quite a splurge that I don’t think I’d ever buy for myself.

Pat McGrath Labs MTHRSHP Sublime Bronze Temptation Eyeshadow Palette – another item I can’t justify buying (since I have so many shadow palettes). It’s absolutely stunning though and I actually think it would be quite versatile.

Ohii Gummy Gloss in Rose Quartz – such a gorgeous shade and I’m really into gloss lately. I’ve read that this works well on the lids too for that editorial, glassy look. I really want to try Urban Outfitters’ new beauty line!

Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner in Blossom Lady – this is a really wearable pink and I love a good lip balm. Everything from Ilia looks so pretty!

Pieces Space Dye Sweater – I’m loving funkier sweaters lately and I don’t think I own anything in this color. The pointelle knit and mock neck are nice details too.

Heartloom Astrid Sweater – a fun color combo; I’m clearly into reds and pinks lately, and mock necks.

French Connection Sofia Colorblock Sweater – another mock neck… I’m always cold. I like the dramatic sleeves and neutral colors on this one.

New Look Satin Tux Trousers – I’d actually love this whole suit, but of the two, I think I’d wear the pants more. They seem fun for the holidays or paired with a graphic tee.

Pulling this list together helps me narrow down my wishlist and find trends in what I’m loving – there’s clearly satin and pink/red themes here! Anything you’ve been wishing for lately?

 

Kosas and Briogeo Soho Pop-Up

Another shopping outing!

Anastasia and I finally stopped by the Kosas and Briogeo pop-up down in Soho. It’s such a pretty store with a relaxed vibe; we happily browsed and swatched products from the two lines for about 30 minutes.

It’s open until December 31st at 85 Mercer if you’d like to stop by!

Isn’t this a cool display for the Weightless Lip Color Lipsticks? I love the rainbow of colors and lip swatches. Each shade also had a description noting if it was cool or warm-toned and what color family it belonged to.

Here are swatches of my favorite shades: (from left to right) Rosewater, Stardust, Royal, and Darkroom. The first two have a bit of a glossy finish, while the darker shades looked more matte. They glide on beautifully and are nicely pigmented. This holiday trio is a great deal and has two of these shades!

Aren’t these cheek duos pretty? I love that Kosas makes each shade in cream and powder versions, so you can pick the formula you prefer. My favorite was a cool toned pink and champagne highlight called Longitude 0. The packaging is sturdy and compact too, so these would be perfect for travel.

The powders feel smooth and they’re pigmented, but they blend nicely. Some of the colors may look bright, but they have a soft finish on the skin. The creams are easily buildable and looked more dewy in swatches. The cream highlighters were more natural looking than the powders in my opinion; if you want more of that blinding look, go for the powder.

This is the Briogeo wall with so many products I’d love to try! I’m eyeing the scrub and dry shampoo especially. This cute gift set would make a great stock stuffer too!

I really like the few items I’ve tried from Briogeo so far, including their Curl Charisma Shampoo and Rosarco Milk Leave-in Conditioning Spray (quick review here!). I love that Briogeo is a clean haircare line and that their products smell great while actively improving my hair.

Have you tried anything from Briogeo or Kosas?? What would you recommend?
