April Wishlist

I've decided I'm going to start posting a monthly Wishlist of a few things I want. Keep in mind some of these things are pretty pricey so I won't be buying all of them. I may not even buy any of them for quite a while! These posts are more going to be mental notes as to all the random cute things I'm wanting at the time. This month, most of the beauts I've got my eyes on are makeup. I promise it won't be like that every month. My taste changes constantly so there's bound so be some weird things I'll want in the future. For now, these are all the items on my Wishlist for the month of April. Enjoy!

  1. tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation ($38) - I was in Ulta recently and I asked one of the lovely people who works there what foundation he recommended for people with acne-prone skin, i.e. me. He immediately went for this foundation. It's made without parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals and a ton of other yucky stuff companies put in makeup now-a-days. It's described to have "skin-smart" Amazonian Clay in it which adjusts to your skin type and is actually formulated to help clear up your skin! He tested two different shades on my neck and after letting it oxidize I found the perfect color for me. Unfortunately, it just so happened to also be the only color that was currently sold out. Just my luck, right? I've decided to put it on my Wishlist so I remember to get it as soon as possible. It's currently the number one thing I want out of everything on the list but besides that, all other items are in random order.
  2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38) - Incase you're confused by the name, it's just fancy talk for highlight. I saw this highlighter in the shade Moonstone in store for the first time a while ago and I had to hold back from squealing  It's stunning! It's honestly one of the pretty shades of highlight I've ever seen. I get the feeling you'd have to be very sparing when applying it because of how pigmented it is. Don't ever be afraid of that though, it just means it'll basically last forever. At the price of $38 let's hope it does. 
  3. Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crayon ($24) - The reason this beautiful lip crayon (in the shade Leche) landed on my list is because of all the Youtubers that keep talking about. I've seen it in many, many hauls. Looks like companies do sponsorships for a reason because I want this, badly. I've swatched a few different shades of lips products from this brand before and was insanely impressed. Their products are all so soft and creamy. Can't wait to get my hands on this.
  4. NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base ($25) - This one is a pretty basic product. It's a base to help prevent your eyeshadow that you just spent an hour perfecting, from smudging all over the place. I've tried a lot of different bases in my time and none of them have worked that well for me. I think it's my Italian genes to blame. My eyelids always get oily throughout the day, especially when I wear eyeshadow. TMI? Oh well. Some one recommend this to me on one of my Youtube videos from a loooong time ago and I still have yet to try it out. Oh yeah, have I told you I make Youtube videos? Well...I used to. No worries though, I plan on starting up my channel again sometime before summer. I have to figure out of to balance work, this blog, Youtube, and my free time. I'm also currently saving up to go to school in a near by city. For now everything on my channel is private except one Demi Lovato inspired makeup tutorial I made two years ago. Feel free to take a look if you're interested.
  5. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29) - The last makeup item on my Wishlist is this creamy concealer. Everyone and their Grandma raves about it. I've never tested it out, or even felt the consistency but I imagine it's creamy...and radiant...and that it conceals. Okay I need to stop. I'm obviously getting a little tired. So I'll end the makeup part of my April Wishlist off by saying this. NARS always amazes me with the quality of their products so this will most definitely become my go-to concealer. 

Shoesss! I'm a girl who openly admits to having an obsession with shoes. Whether it be a pair of sky high heels or just some no-name sneakers, I want them and I want them now. If I'm being honest with myself, the Converse you spot above will be the first thing I actually buy off this Wishlist. I'm a sucker for Chucks. I want them in every color of every style. I know that's not going to happen in this life time of mine but that's probably a good thing. I'll stop babbling up here now and leave that for the explanations down below.

  1. Jeffrey Campbell Suede Rumble Bootie ($155) These shoes. These freaking shoes! Oh man they get me. I've seen photos of them so many times on Pinterest  (I know you think it's for old people but it's fun. So shhhh!) Let me just fill you in, if It's by Jeffrey Campbell, I'm probably already drooling over it. I love all of his creations. I think he is such a fun and daring designer and I commend him for that. Back to these shoes. I've wanted them for around a year and when I saw Urban Outfitters was selling them I just about fell out of my chair. They come in at a whopping $155 before tax. After tax they're closer to $170. I had the funds to get them this past week but something inside me told me to hold off and save my money, which I ended up doing. I told myself if they were still there in my size by my next paycheck that I'd buy them. Of course what happens is I go back two days later to see if they're still there and no. Nope. They are already on back order and wouldn't ship till June 6th if I ordered them now. That's crazy! Within two days their entire stock of these shoes in my size sold out. I guess I'll just have to save them for my June Wishlist.
  2. Chuck Taylor All Star High Top ($55) - Last on my list of shoes are the classic Converse I went on about earlier. I already have plenty of low top Converse in my collection but have yet to buy any high top ones. I think that I used to believe they looked weird on my but when I tried them on recently I went crazy for them. They are the perfect amount of style and comfort. You can never go wrong with a good pair of Converse.

  • Pages Old Book Scented Candle ($26.95) The last and also one of the coolest things on my Wishlist is this candle that smells like old books. Guys. This is not a joke. This is an actual candle that you can actually buy that is actually scented to smell like old book pages. Sorry, I got a little word happy just then. I don't know about you but when I first saw this was a real product I flipped my shit. What a genius idea for a candle scent! Since it sits at the price of $26.95, it might be a while till I invest in this. It's hard for me to justify burning 26.95 of my dollars. Until that day though, I'll just spend my time awing over it. If you like the smell of a book store, or a library, or those ancient books your Mom keeps locked behind glass and basically never lets you touch, this candle is made for you. If you prefer the smell of a fresh new book, don't worry because they have that too! You can get it here for $26.95 as well.
Thank you for reading another one of my blog posts full of babbling and drama queen moments. Please be sure to follow me if you enjoyed. 

Stay brilliant world.
