Thursday Wishlist - Careful What You Wish For

I haven't done a wishlist in a long time, I think in fact this is only my second one. I am at the worst place to compile one actually because I am so full of life today people, seriously (I'm kidding I don't deserve these). Why does Thursday feel like Friday?! Anyway, there are some new great products coming out from my favorite brands. If you're on twitter you probably know what's in the buzz nowadays ;).

1. La Bella Figura Modern Radiance Concentrate

Oh what in the world! I need this stuff. For a lackluster skin that begs for radiance, a more even skin tone and a more refined skin tone or if you want to fade your discoloration, hold.off.your.other.purchase that claims the same! Why? Because La Bella Figura is releasing its newest product this August, so that's very soon. I am real eager to try this because I have heard great stuff about Kakadu Plum (the star ingredient), a native fruit to Australia. It is the richest and most complete source of Vitamin C and contains a number of other benefits such as anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral that comes from its Gallic Acid. What's more impressive is that I love the gel-cream texture of this concentrate. By the look of it, it's going to feel very dreamy to put on thanks to the blend of Cupuacu butter.

2. Studio 78 Liquid Lipstick in Rose Wedding

I love it when natural, green beauty products come out with something 'new'. Well, 'new' because this kind of liquid lipstick has been around in conventional products. I mean, what can't chemicals do? I have already loved the formulation and applicator of Ellis Faas Creamy Lips, but unfortunately not a fan of her ingredients. This Studio 78 Liquid Lipstick is hopefully going to be a healthy substitution for that. It claims to have a creamy consistency and deliver a velvety lacquer for an intense and long-lasting result. The ingredients sound good enough to eat too, I can imagine a citrus-y scent and taste from this lipstick. Rose Wedding is the most desirable color for me. That mauvy-rose colour is just too gorgeous, reminds me of RMS in Illusive that I LOVE. But let's not forget... Ruby, Coral and Velvet Wedding anyone?

3. Konjac Sponge for Very Sensitive Skin 

I love that there's a sponge for every skin type from normal, dry, combination, sensitive, acne-prone. I decided that I would be really interested in getting the pink one for hyper-sensitive and over-exposed skin. It contains a blend of Red and White French Clay that will improve blood circulation to help the skin get back that healthy radiance it needs to be looking. Now, my skin is not exactly THAT sensitive but I do feel that my skin sometimes asks for a break. I am a skin-care junkie after-all. May Lindstrom used to advise me to let my skin be in the process of healing itself, so not using a cleanser at all but just water is good. The thing is, I need to absolutely be patient to cleanse my face with just water until it's clean. So, won't this sponge be that perfect companion :)

4. May Lindstrom SKIN Treatment Brush 

I have to snap myself out of it whenever I look at this brush. Sounds dramatic I know but it's just too damn handsome. Crafted with vegan-friendly Taklon fibres, recycled aluminium ferrule and a natural wood handle, it is going to be a perfect addition to my masking ritual. Sometimes, it's just easier with a brush.

Pssst.. May Lindstrom has been developing new awesome products. The best way to get a sneak peek is to follow her on Instagram.

5. Shea Terra Gingered Pumpkin Whipped Shea Butter

You know how I feel about smelling like dessert or cookies. I have never tried Shea Terra products mainly because the shipping can get really expensive when all I want is just a couple of things. The good thing is, Shea Terra is generous, they go on sale often so I'm waiting around for that so I can finally get to try this awesome smelling Gingered Pumpkin sweet! Main ingredients are Shea Butter and Pumpkin Seed oil. I have high expectation for this to heal my dry body skin.

6. YULI Pure Mask 

A short and sweet brand and product name. I love masks and this one is apparently only leaving your skin being transcended into a fresh, brand-new skin. I LOVE the sound of the ingredients in this. Pricy for a little thing, but worth-a-try. All the ingredients are there for a reason, they are all key actives to detoxify, neutralize, nourishes, soothes, gently exfoliate while injecting some powerful anti-oxidants from Green Tea and Rice Powder. I am also excited about Mung Beans and Cucumber in this mask.

Now, that's what I call a great long wish-list. What's yours?


  1. Hi Asti,

    Nice wish-list! The Konjac Sponge has been on my to-try list for quite a while, and I also would love to try La Bella Figura products, particularly this new one you've mentioned. I have ordered the YULI mask - happy that IANS are now the Australian stockists!

    Also on my wish-list are products from Osmia, Audra James, and the upcoming cleanser from YULI.

    1. Hi Yvonne!

      we share quite a similar wishlist! I know, konjac sponge is one of those items that i really want to try but keep passing it for no reason. The modern concentration cream from la bella is a new one! I cant wait until i put it on my skin, the gel-cream consistency sounds to die for :). And yes, i am so happy too that yuli is now officially stocked at IANS! Let me know how you go with the YULI mask And if youve ticked off anything on your wishlist. Curious with what you think!

      Have a lovely day yvonne. Good to hear from you!

  2. Have tried/reviewed the Konjac quite recently - it's a funny little thing and I can't quite make up my mind about replacing it. Look forward to seeing your thoughts. Studio 78 is a tad out of my price range, but they do look lovely and that colour is gorrrrrrgeous!!


    1. Hello hephzibah :)

      I think konjac sponge receives a 50:50 review, there are some who feel "meh" towards it. But i am still looking forward to it! Yeah, i am not mad about make up so studio 78 is something tht i wont normally consider in buying, but i quite like the idea of a liquid lipstick :) dont they come out w gorgeous colours?!
