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

26 Jun

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.

Friday Four!

22 Jun

Friday Four is a collection of (you guessed it) four interesting videos, photos, links, etc., that I hope get you pumped up for the weekend. 

Happy Friday, beauties!  Are you pumped for the weekend?  I’ve started mine early by making my way to a cabin in Wisconsin.

Here’s some fun to get you ready for the weekend:

  • An adorable lamb jumping on a bed?  Yes, please!

Weekend Update

18 Jun

Happy Monday, beauties!  How was your weekend?


Mine was quite lovely.  I went to a friend’s housewarming party, saw my lovely friend Bully Jean and the Minnesota RollerGirls kick some tail, and went to the driving range with my pops for Father’s Day.  My weekend might have been a bit too jam packed as I came down with some sort of cold.  No fun!


The RollerGirls in action!


I also started my two week trial of the oil cleansing method — I’ll post an update after two weeks to let you know if my face is radiant and glowing or if it looks like a giant grease slick.

I had to sneak in some cuddle time with my new guy as well.  Cuddly cats sure make me feel better when I have a cold.


Sleepy Digby.


What awesome things did you do this weekend?

Weekend Update!

21 May

Happy Monday, readers!

This weekend update will be rather brief as I’m currently dealing with medical issues that will most likely require surgery later this week; please forgive me if posts aren’t as consistent as usual.

The majority of the weekend was spent at home trying to make myself comfortable before the surgery.  The perk of the weekend was taking care of my friend’s cats, Ophelia and Nemo.

Ophelia, the sassy kitten.

Nemo, the snuggly kitten.

We also had quite the storm with large hail.  Here’s a photo of the view from our apartment, as well as my discovery that Evan’s drink matched my shirt.

It’s a match!

Hail storm!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, and I’ll see you after my operation!
