Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

I hope your week is going well so far and has been reasonably exciting! 

As for me, I’m currently obsessing over a few things (as per usual), but most of them have nothing to do with beauty for once, except maybe a few things so I thought I’d share them with you and see what your thoughts are! 

Wall Planter Frame – Fab.com

I saw this particular wall planter on Fab, but I feel like I’m seeing them everywhere and I love the idea of them for both design and environment. Growing up, my mom has always had a million and one plants in the house so now that I don’t live at home anymore, I find myself more drawn to house plants and this is such a lovely way to display them no?

 I’ve been lusting after these particular cameras for ages now and I can’t seem to get over it! 

They’re super cute and portable and they allow you to take mini polaroids which I really love. It must be because when I was younger, my step dad had this old polaroid camera he used for his work and I loved playing with it. The idea of instant pictures like that is really fun to me.

You can get these in a number of colors, but the Pink, Black & Blue are my favorites!

Antonia Burrell Supreme Moisturizer

I’ve been pining after this particular moisturizer ever since I reviewed a mini sample of the Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil. This isn’t just any moisturizer, either. It claims to clear acne, moisturize skin, diminish pigmentation and scarring, get rid of blackheads and redness, and basically solve every skin problem you ever had. I would think they were full of it, but I had such a good experience with their cleansing oil, I’m willing to spend the massive cost to try this moisturizer sometime in the future.

Tangle Teezer – BeautyBay.com

I keep seeing people raving about these everywhere and claiming that they’re amazing for people with tangled hair. Since I’m someone who has to battle my own hair, even after a shower, just to de-knot it, this really piqued my interest and I was surprised at how inexpensive they are!

Liquid Gold Radiance

Liquid Gold Radiance – Alpha-H.com

You all know about my love for Alpha-H and, if not, check here. I have been wanting to try this for awhile now, but haven’t had the chance yet. It’s meant to help with pigmentation and to brighten the skin, similar to their Liquid Gold, only in serum form. I’ve seen some reviews praising this one so I definitely want to try this out in the future!

ILIA Beauty Mascara in Macao – BeautyHabit.com

For some reason, I’m super obsessed with colored mascaras right now. I am on the lookout for a nice one in blue, purple, green and copper. This one by ILIA Beauty looks amazing as it’s a really unique copper color which I think would highlight my hazel eye color nicely. I’ll probably buy this soon anyway, but if you all have any nice colored mascaras to recommend, I’d appreciate your thoughts in the comments!

I first posted on these in the My Velvet Obsession post I did awhile ago, but I still haven’t picked these up. I’ve been trying to completely pay off debt ( not much left, but I’d like a clean slate before I go on any shopping spree which is why I’ve abstained ) so that’s why I haven’t purchased these yet, but I definitely plan to get them in this color and the black. So adorable. I need them! Lol.

So, is there anything you’re fixating on or obsessed with currently?

I’d love to know about it in the comments!

Coming Soon! Healing Face Powders, Blush and More!

Image

So, after finally establishing my shop on Etsy, I am now able to focus on expanding my line a bit from the 3 original serums.

I am very excited about the line of healing face powder foundation shades and blushes that I will be coming out with very shortly!

They will include a strong calming powder base with botanical powders and extracts. This is something I have never seen done much if at all and that is basically the use of all natural botanical powders in the powder formulation.

This means that your makeup will function as both a means to look awesome and offer color, but also as a treatment while you wear it as the botanical ingredients work to help soften lines, calm redness and inflammation and even help to clear breakouts.

This is something I have always wanted in a powder myself so I am extremely psyched to be able to offer it to my customers!

Not only will you be able  wear the powders as a powder foundation and a blush, but the formulations themselves are designed to improve your skin and not only cover up blemishes, fine lines, and hyper-pigmentation, but also help to treat them!

These will be $25 for a 20 gram twist and lock sifter jar (saves product and great for travel!).

Only one size will be available initially, but I am thinking of  adding a 10 gram jar to offer a smaller trial type size for those who want to try it before buying the larger jars and also to make it more affordable to students, bargain hunters and the like who are on a budget.

^Let me know what you think! Do you want smaller jars to be available?

Aside from these awesome powders, I plan on also offering a line of face/eye creams to offer those who love the creamy texture of a face cream or eye cream over the texture of serums. These will include an acne, wrinkle and eye cream.
I may also add in a brightening cream in the future.

These will typically run the same prices as the serums, depending on size so about $15-$25.

Lastly, I will be adding concentrated creamy and gel facial cleansers. The gel cleansers will be more for brightening and blemish clearing while the cream cleansers will be more moisturizing and nourishing for dry, mature and sensitive skin types. In the beginning, I am going to offer these in smaller sizes, but they will last you a good amount as a little will go a long way. Later, I will add in larger sizes. Cleansers will be about $15-$25 as well.

That’s all for now!

I’m very excited about all of this and I hope you will leave me feedback on what your thoughts are.

Have a Nice Weekend!

Stay Beautiful
