Black Friday – Cyber Monday Wishlist

Hello, how are you all! Belated Happy Thanksgiving! I was working during Thanksgiving and didn’t really do anything else apart from writing and writing and writing. My fingers are practically numb by now, lol. I will be back to full-on blogging soon, I just gotta finish some assignments. If you’re wondering what’s on my wishlist this pandemic shopping season. Well, I’m definitely wishing for these.

 

 

Black Friday 2020 Wishlist

 

 

  1. Chloe Nile Bracelet Bag – I love this bag, I want this bag (repeat 100000xxx times).
  2. Tom Ford Face Mask – Available at tomford.com. I swear I couldn’t care less about face mask styles and designs. As long as I have a face mask on, that’s good enough for me. But, OMG! Tom Ford face mask in soft pink? You bet I’ll be wearing it even when I’m alone at home, haha.
  3. Saint Laurent Mini Cassandra Satchel – I have officially become YSL obsessed by printing a photo of this gorgeous purse and attaching it to my mood board. There’s just something about them YSL bags that makes me drool.
  4. Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror – I’m dying to have this in my entryway. This is the ultimate influencer mirror, and it’s sooooo beautiful. lol.
  5. Pat McGrath Labs Mothership VII Eyeshadow (Divine Rose) – I haven’t tried this palette yet and it’s so pretty. I want to wear this every day, even when I’m asleep, lol.
  6. Stuart Weitzman 5050 Boots – What’s it with this gloomy weather and my addiction to Stuart Weitzman boots? I swear this will be the last time I will stare at these boots (not gonna happen).
  7. Venus et Fleur Fleura Vase – Available at venusetfleur.com. Flowers are my quick pick-me-ups in this pandemic, and the gorgeous dreamy floral presentation of these preserved pink roses with a stylish ceramic vase is the perfect definition of chic.
  8. Strathberry Mini East/West Bi-Color Shoulder Bag – OMG! I saw this color at my local Saks and what a beaut! My heart skipped a bit and almost dropped my phone while taking a gazillion snaps of this purse. Thanks to Meghan Markle for introducing this brand, now I can’t get enough of their stuff.
  9. Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Candle – I don’t care if this candle smells so good or so bad. I hope this will help in making me feel f*cking fabulous again, hahaha, and this will make for a catchy décor in my living room.
  10. Dyson Airwrap Styler – This is probably the coolest hair gadget I’ve ever seen. Dyson applies their vacuum technology in this styler and this sure looks fast and easy to use. No more pandemic hair or Zoombarded hair, lol. The youtube videos are the proofs.

 

Those are the things on my wishlist for this season. What’s on your list? And what are you secretly wishing for? On a serious side note, I’m seriously hoping and wishing that this pandemic will end. I miss my life, I miss friends, and I miss the world. Keep holding on y’all.

Happy shopping and stay safe.

Laneige Lip Glowy Balm Review + Swatches

laneige lip glowy balm pear peach gummy bear

 

Hi all! Sharing with you this quick review of these very cute and very delightful lip balms from Laneige. You’ve seen these everywhere and a lot of you may have already tried these. I can definitely say these balms are so yummy, so addicting, and so enticing. Every scent of each tube is well-crafted and totally unique from each other. I also think that the colorful tubes brighten up the vanity table and they match each flavor/scent. Even though they’re sheer, their consistency is thick and really moisturizing without the heavy sticky feel. I do like the original Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask because of its hefty size, but it doesn’t seem to be very sanitary to use. That’s why I love these lip glowy balms not just for their flavors and colorful tubes, but also for their convenience. Just twist and apply.

Berry – My all-time favorite. I love the unique yummy scent of this that reminds me of those classic lip balms in the past.

Grapefruit – The smell of fresh grapefruit will awaken you all the time whenever you use this lip balm.

Pear – Smells like fresh pear and fresh green apple. I love this one a lot and the scent is never boring.

Peach – A lot of folks love this because this has a nice subtle peach scent.

Gummy Bear – This latest addition smells so sweet, so fruity, and just so irresistible. It won’t turn your lip purple or violet. It’s just sheer. I highly highly recommend this.

These lip balms will save your lips from dryness and chapping. On top of that, you’ll enjoy the fabulous delicious flavor or scent that each tube brings. For me, I always look forward to using these every day. So, if you love the Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks, then I bet you’ll love these as well.

Kaja Beauty Piña Colada Collection Review + Swatches

Kaja Pina Colada

 

Hello. I’m so excited to review some newness from Kaja Beauty in this post. Their latest Piña Colada collection is absolutely giving me Summer and self-care vibes even though we’re in the middle of Autumn. I can’t help but wish for more sunshine and bright warm days every time I look at these bright yellow goodies, and guess what? The scents of these are TDF. Curious much?

 

Kaja Beauty Balmy Bento Lip Balm+Scrub Pina Colada

 

Balmy Bento Lip Balm + Scrub – The upper portion of this cute product is a very moisturizing lip balm that smells like coconut. The texture is so light, non-sticky, and it keeps the lips hydrated without chapping. The bottom part is a lip scrub that smells like fresh pineapples. It is SO good and it is so exfoliating without being too harsh on the lips. The combination of coconut and pineapple in this fun balm+scrub product is so irresistible and so addicting. I highly recommend this.

Beauty Bento Bouncy Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio in Alotta Colada – This sunkissed neutral-tone eyeshadow trio with coconut scent is one of the most delightful eyeshadows I’ve ever tried. I love a good quality eyeshadow with a yummy scent but they’re usually hard to come by. The shades of this cute stackable compact are something I would definitely wear every day and even more so now in this pandemic where we’re all about “the eyes”. I find that all of the shades are so creamy and so easy to apply or blend on the lids, plus, you can layer them easily. I appreciate that the shades are in neutral tone which can definitely work for any complexion.

Kaja Beauty Mist Me Hydrating Face Mist

 

Mist Me Hydrating Face Mist – This face mist is making me wish for sunshine on a beach while sipping Piña Colada, lol. You can tell I badly need a vacay, but don’t we all, right? This mist is probably the next best thing to that dreamy vacay I’m wishing to have. I love the yummy scent of this, which is kinda like having a spritz of pineapple and coco juice on your face. This hydrates my face without that sticky feeling and it helps to prevent dry Autumn skin especially if you apply this regularly. I have yet to test and see if this works really well on setting my makeup. I will update y’all soon.

 

Kaja Beauty Piña Colada Collection review

 

Overall, I highly recommend these delightful collection from Kaja Beauty. I think all of the products in this collection are very well-done. I love the delicious scent and I love the quality of this makeup collection. I’m rating each of them as 5 stars, especially in terms of packaging and overall design.
