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?

 

Vapour Organic Beauty – Review and Swatches

Testing a green beauty brand

I’ve been wanting to pick up some Vapour products since swatching them at Credo Beauty a few months ago. I loved the sleek and convenient packaging, clean formulas, and beautiful colors.

Last month I needed to replenish some skincare and decided to try Dermstore. I was so excited when I noticed they carry Vapour! It was the first time I had ever shopped there so I received 20% off my whole purchase. I chose the Illusionist Concealer in 010, the Aura Multi-use Blush in Spark 202, and the Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment in Cinder.

My favorite item is definitely the concealer. I rarely go for concealers in stick form as they’ve been dry and hard to blend in my experience. The Illusionist Concealer is completely different! It’s so creamy and sinks into the skin beautifully and quickly. It looks very natural while having a brightening effect too. I mostly use this under my eyes; there’s not a ton of coverage for spot concealing. It’s the only concealer I’ve been using since I received this package! I would highly recommend checking this out.

I also really enjoyed the blush stick – which I’ve tried on my eyes and lips as well. This color is a pretty darker peach that looks like a natural flush when blended. You just need a small dab on the cheeks and I’ve found it blends in well with my fingers or a BeautyBlender. It didn’t last perfectly all day on my lids, but it’s great as a blush. The stain version of this formula sounds amazing as well.

Lastly, the eye shadow was the only item I didn’t quite like. It was just a bit glittery for me without much color when I blended it. You can see some glitter flecks in this photo – especially at the bottom where it’s blended. I prefer more of a satin or shimmer finish. Love the easy application though and it’s very creamy, so I’m going to try some of the matte shades.

Have you ever tried Vapour? I’m really excited to explore the rest of their line now!
