Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer

1 Aug

It’s time for another exciting review!  Today’s pick? Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer .

I have searched high and low for a natural concealer that didn’t cost more than $30 and I’m pleased to announce that I’ve found one.  I very much dig Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer – it packs a pigment punch and blends easily into the skin.  I dislike concealers that are the same consistency as liquid foundation and prefer a cream concealer.  Many cream concealers can, however, feel very dry and are hard to spread.  Not this one, friends.  Creamy, moisturizing, blend-friendly.  Awesome coverage.  Hooray.

And what’s in this stuff?  Vapour states that the product “nourishes with Vapour’s face specific infusion of anti-inflammatory Frankincense, antioxidant Tulsi and moisturizing and calming Lotus flowers”.  Anti-inflammatory?  Please pass it my way.  I generally wake up with puffy, discolored under eye circles and appreciate any help I can get. Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist  Concealer  also contains 70% organic ingredients with the remainder of ingredients made up of natural mineral pigments and vitamins.

And in a MargitMae first, I will now show you what the product actually looks like on skin.  On my puffy, discolored under eye area.  Please ignore the fact that I am desperately in need of a new mascara as the one I’m wearing is old and prone to clumping.

Look at my giant eye and fear me!

Here is it on my hand.  I wear color 010 which is worn by those who mimic Casper the Ghost.  Fear not, non-Casperians – this concealer comes in 7 shades.

Fun fact – I learned a new camera trick to take that photo.  Apparently you can do more with point-and-shoot cameras then just, well, point and shoot.  I used the ever-exciting macro feature to take giant photos of my eyeball so you could check out my contacts.

And this is the first ever photo I took where I used a setting other than “turn the flash off”.  Be proud.  Sadly, the wine photos took a turn for the worst.

This wine has a fine nose.

Too much wine.

The shame.

What were we talking about?  Oh yes, Vapour Organic Beauty Illusionist Concealer .  It’s a fantastic concealer – for under $25, you get a creamy and effective concealer full of yummy ingredients.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

What’s your favorite concealer?  What awkward photos shoots have you made your cat participate in?


Cats In Love

I found the following piece of art at my parents’ house this past week; I’m guessing that this masterpiece was created around age five.

Some people think that little girls dream about what their weddings will look like when they grow up.  I apparently was looking forward to not my own wedding, but of a wedding between my cat, Patches, and an unknown male cat-panion.

Digby the Cat!

5 Jun

I’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the MargitMae family …


Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, known in his day-to-day life simply as Digby.


Digby the cat was adopted from Feline Rescue, Inc. in Saint Paul.  I highly recommend Feline Rescue, Inc. if you are looking to add a feline friend to your family.  They were wonderful in helping us find a cat that they thought would be a great companion for our resident queen bee, Jolene.  They also gave us some helpful information in adding a cat to our home; in addition, they gave us some food to help Digby transition into his new home.

Digby is a short haired, one-year old cat that was abandoned by his previous owners.  They left him in an apartment building where he was unfortunately chased around by children with brooms.  Due to his abuse, Digby is initially timid of people.  Within half an hour of coming home with us, however, he was purring like a mad man, rubbing his head under our chins, and jumping around in the bathroom sink.

There has only been a mild amount of hissing between Digby and Jolene through the door thus far.  Fingers crossed that they speedily become friends!
