Another month, another wishlist post? Sounds about right… Plus, there’s always something oddly therapeutic about recording my thoughts on various items catching my eye.
Bath & Body Works Nantucket Sail 3-Wick Candle ($11): I’ve been a good girl, actually burning through my candles rather than hoarding them and it is the Semi-Annual Sale at the moment so it’s only fitting that I might consider purchasing a candle or two. I’ve got my sights on this one, after hearing that it’s a subtly masculine-leaning aquatic scent, similar to the no-longer-available Beach Day candle from last year.
American Eagle Crochet Front Romper in Cream ($73.77): I adore the cream hue and the whole romper concept, and in my recently renewed interest in clothing shopping, I’ve been fixated on this flowy number. I’m definitely going to snap this one up once its inevitably put on sale. I find these cream hues flattering, especially once I’ve gotten any semblance of colour, along with the relaxed cut.
Paula’s Choice Resist C15 Super Booster ($48): After using this potent vitamin C product for a couple of months and noting that I’m at the very end of it with genuine anxiety and sadness, I’ve come to realize that I’ve come to love this product, hot dog smell and all. It feels soothing and hydrating on my skin and definitely helps with texture and overall brightness of my skin without being bothersome even when my skin is at its most sensitive.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque in Appechissant ($24): I’m a major fan of the popular Velvet formulation but tend to prefer more moisturizing and balmy formulas so it was a no-brainer that I really wanted to try one as soon as they launched in Canada. I’ve got to say that that I don’t think the shade range is as fabulous as its sister product but this medium-toned corally shade is right up my alley.
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Cannes Crush ($14.99): Speaking of comfortable balmy lip products, I rediscovered my love for tangerine Milan Moment and have consequently decided that I must get another less outwardly orange shade – and this pinky coral seems ideal. These are expensive for the drugstore (as are Bourjois), but the balmy, comfortable and staining formula is worth it.
Annabelle Stay Sharp Waterproof Lipliner in Nude ($9.95): Despite having doubts about mechanical liners, I absolutely adore the formula of these creamy pencils and as much as I love the brown-hued rosy shade, sometimes I find it a bit too brown with nude and peachy lip offerings. The Nude shade looks like it might be ideal.
Sephora Collection Pro Precision Smudge Brush #29 ($23): While brushes are not the most glamorous and exiting of beauty purchases, I do find that they can make such a difference and I’ve decided that this pencil brush is the next on the list. I’ve wanted a pencil-slash-smudge brush for well over five years and it shall be worth the investment for applying shadow as liner and creating a smudgy outer corner and lashline. I’ve have been curious to try Sephora’s brushes in general so it would be like hitting two birds with one stone.
