beauty products i want to try in 2018

2018 beauty to try


In 2017 I was insanely busy. I worked a lot, I hardly wore makeup, and my poor skin suffered. This year, though, I significantly scaled back my work hours and wear makeup to the office, so I put together a list of things I'd like to try this year. I didn't keep up to date on all the new releases for last year, so most of these have been around for a while.

Eye of Horus Bio Lash Lift Mascara // This is way more pricey than my typical under $5 mascara, but I want to start trying some new brands.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream* // Everyone rants about how great this stuff is and I'd really like to try it for my eczema.

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Oil-Free Mattifying Gel* // I love anything that creates a matte look.

The Ordinary Foundation // My friend Jess recommended this one to me and The Ordinary is all over the FB groups I've joined. Once I use up the unholy amount of foundation I already have, I'm definitely ordering this!

Sigma Beauty E25 Blending Brush* // This is the year I master my hooded eyes!

Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick in Behind the Bleachers // Again with the matte, and since NYX can't verify the vegan status of their Lingerie lip line, I'm going with Wet n Wild.

Derma E Scar Gel* // I've heard good things about this and I have the remnants of a scar above my eyebrown and another on my knee that I'd like to see if this works on.

Mr. Dandy's Hair Candy // I don't ever do anything with my hair. I wash and condition it once a week, so maybe this will be the year I style my hair, too.

Pacifica Hawaiian Banana Lip Balm* // Give me all the banana things.

Urban Decay Liquid Moondust Eyeshadow* in Spacetime // Liquid eyeshadow has just started appealing to me, so why not start out with a shiny space themed shadow??

What are you wanting to try this year? ♥

summer wishlist

summer 2017 wishlist



I loathe summer, so I try to pretend it doesn't exist. I don't get excited about warm weather (Ice Queens, unite!) and I don't start covering everything with pineapples. I sit inside in the air conditioning and stare at my beloved sweaters, longing for the day when I can wear them again.

But anyway, that doesn't mean I can't have a summer wishlist!

Bee-Q-Box's F*ckboy Repellent Primer & Setting Spray // Uh, yes. Enough said.

Korres Vanilla Guava Showergel* // I just found out that Korres is cruelty free (where have I been??) and I'm lusting after the vanilla guava shower gel, which is vegan friendly.

Killstar Full Moon Cold Brew Cup // I have to have a drink with my constantly, it's some kind of sickness. Well, I need more drink containers like I need a hole in the head, but I love this one from Killstar.

ban.do Whatcha Thinkin' Bout? Journal* // Normally I just use small wire bound notebooks for my purse, but I'd like to get a nice journal to jot things down in.

OCC's Black Dahlia Lip Tar* // I swatched Urban Decay's Blackmail lipstick and fell in love, but sadly it's not vegan. No worries! I found Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' Black Dahlia Lip Tar which is a close dupe and I think that's going to be on my next order.

I'm trying pretty hard to minimize the items I bring home, not to mention I'm trying to save money, but it never hurts to treat yoself every once in a while. ♥ ♥

winter wishlist

Winter is well on its way here in Virginia - last night it dipped below freezing. I love winter and I can't wait, so I thought I'd put together a little winter wishlist!

winter wishlist



Matt & Nat Schlepp Vegan Leather Tote // I've been on the prowl for a dark red vegan leather bag and I think I found it.

Lush Butterbear Bath Bomb & Salt and Peppermint Salt Scrub // Oh man. I looked at these on the Lush site and vanilla and peppermint and ah!

Frostbeard Book Lovers Soy Candle - Reading at the Cafe // Coffee and chocolate, oh my! A Frostbeard candle has been on my 'want' list for quite a while, and I love how cozy candles are in the winter.

San Diego Hat Company Knit Infinity Scarf // I've really started to love knit scarves, so I'd love to pick up a couple of these.

Himilayan Salt Lamp // Does everyone but me have one of these? I've heard they're great for energy and clearing toxins.

Breville BTM800XL Tea Maker // This may be a weird thing to have on a wishlist, but warm tea is one of my favorites, especially in winter. Since the sister store to where I work is a loose leaf tea and spice shop, I have access to hundreds of types of tea! My boss has a Breville and it's great - it steeps and uses correct temps and everything!

Is there anything on your winter wishlist? ♥

an all black everything wishlist

all black everything


I've always worn way too much black and grey. So why not an all black post to celebrate the upcoming season change?

Voluspa Apricot & Aprilia Candle // I've wanted a Voluspa candle since I worked at Francesca's waaaay back in the day.

American Needle Yankees Hat // It's time for another Yankees hat.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint // Mascara has always been my favorite beauty product. I've been eyeing this one for a while!

Kendra Scott Elton Bracelet in Black Druzy // Since getting my hands on a piece of Kendra, I love them! I think the Elton in all black would work nicely for fall.

Sbicca Chord Fold Over Bootie // I've gotten pretty obsessed with booties, but I don't have a black pair. These vegan suede foldovers are perfect.

LunatiCK Cosmetics High Definition Microfinish Pressed Powder // I still haven't picked up their pallette yet, but I'm working on it. I've been through a couple pressed powders that I wasn't happy with, so why not pick up one that looks cool and has great reviews?

How are you gearing up for fall?

cruelty free & vegan beauty wishlist

CF & vegan wishlist


I want to start off this post by saying I'm still going through a lot of non-cruelty free and vegan beauty and personal care products. I used to coupon regularly a few years ago before I bought cruelty free and vegan products, so I have quite the stash. I wouldn't purchase them again, but I'm not going to waste them, either.

With that said, I'm still building up my cruelty free and vegan products. I find a lot at Marshall's and Ross, but there's some I can only find at Ulta, at stores a bit too far away to drop in regularly, and online. Here are some that I've been lusting after - and will hopefully be able to make room for in my stash soon!

Andalou Naturals Aloe & Willow Bark Pore Minimizer // I desperately need a pore minimizer. I've tried Andalou Naturals deep conditioner on my hair and I love it, so I thought I'd try more of their products. try

Pacifica Stellar Gaze Length & Strength Mineral Mascara in Supernova // I reaaaally want to try new types of vegan mascara. Pacifica's is infused with coconut oil, so it's worth a shot. try

Hurraw Coffee Bean Lip Balm // This is described as a coffee-choco flavor. That alone sold me. My local Wegman's carries Hurraw balms, but I have yet to get over there to pick some up. I've been having a hard time finding vegan lip balms, so I might place an order for some. try

Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Beach Vibes // I've really been loving the greige trend and this nail polish doesn't disappoint. It's a big pricey, but I've heard good things about Trust Fund. try

Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Supernatural Palette // It's in the shape of a coffin. And it has a bat. Not only does that have me in love, but the colors are pretty and goes right along with my go-to colors. try

Lush Superbalm Scalp Treatment // I've always had a super itchy, dry scalp. Gross, I know. I've tried almost everything. Coconut oil helps, but I'd like to try more targeted treatments, and this one tops the list. try

This is just the beginning of my wishlist, but I didn't think having seventy items would be fun to read. Do you have any products you'd like to try?
