Recently in the mail: S.W. Basics (Sprout), Ilia, Vapour

S.W. Basics of Brooklyn (formerly Sprout Skincare) is changing up their packaging, so their lip balm is only $1 for this whole month. ONLY $1! I’ve yet to try any products from their brand (but I’d love to!) but I have heard nothing but goodness about them, and lip balm is a good place to start. Especially since IT’S ONLY $1. Perfect as a stocking stuffer or little extra something because everyone loves a well-moisturized lip. And you don’t want to be flaky under the mistletoe (a poor pun, I am sorry I should do better).

Ilia Beauty is also a brand I have not yet tried but would love to, and seeing I’ve also heard nothing but amazingness about them and I was looking for gifts for some loved ones, I figured a wonderfully non-toxic pinky nude and a seasonally purple tinted lip conditioners would be a potentially good choice. Maybe I’ll be able to sneak a few swipes in myself after the gift-giving is over, heh heh.

I’ve been dabbling with Vapour Organic Beauty’s Atmosphere Luminous Foundation for a couple months, and have been trying to figure out how to best make it work (shade is too light oh no, need to mix two shades, oh no is it breaking me out, oh no now it’s winter and I’m extra dry) hence per a recommendation of Vapour’s beauty expert via email, I am going to try their Stratus Instant Skin Perfector, which is a moisturizing primer base and what I am hoping will help with the dry effect I’m getting currently with the foundation because I really want to love it! *clasps hands together and looks to the sky in a passionate manner
