The elusive Wonder Woman merchandise

Wonder woman opens in a little over a week, and if you’ve had trouble finding merchandise, you’re not the only one. The lack of merchandise driven hype on WBs part is almost embarrassing for them, if it weren’t so frustrating for the rest of us. It’s 2017 guys, this is arguably the biggest movie of the year, and you’re letting antiquated ideas of female superhero/action fans get in the way of making a pretty penny. We want to buy stuff. We want Wonder Woman themed eyeshadow palletes, collaborations with big brands, jewelry that won’t turn our skin green, and shoes in both heel and sneaker form. We want options at all price points, and all forms. For a huge blockbuster opening next week, it’s almost surreal that we have to search and rely on word of mouth that feels like a hidden treasure with each link shared. Have you walked into a major retailer (Target, Wal-Mart, Macy’s, etc) and been greeted with a grand display of clothing, toys, random stuff you didn’t know you needed until you saw it at that moment? Probably not.

Weird right?

Thanks to my ever reliable twitter/Instagram followers, I’ve collected some merchandise for women available right now, or ready for pre-order. They can be a little buried if you don’t know where to look, and a lot has to be ordered online, but most things will arrive in time for the movie for US residents!

Some links to explore: Fye and Wal-Mart have the largest selection of women’s t-shirts, Her Universe has a great selection of non-tee clothing, Alex and Ani have a selection of jewelry, Zulily has quite a bit at a discount, and GAP has a small but stylish collection of activewear.

  Hopefully this will help you find something! And if you have any collections not mentioned here, please send them my way, and I can add them to the post.

Makeup for oily skin

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

A couple years ago I spent the better part of my waking hours pouring over makeup and skincare forums looking for a concealer that wouldn’t cake, crease, or disappear on my oily skin. I’d tried the best designer brands out there, and while they were great, after an hour I’d have to smudge it from settling in the creases under my eyes and getting cakey everywhere else. Some people swore by Maybelline’s Fit Me concealer wand, and since it wouldn’t break the bank, I figured I’d give it a try.

And I’ve never used anything else since.

Maybelline approaching me to be an influencer was a happy coincidence, and I was ecstatic about trying more products, and since we’ve worked together I’ve found more products that work great on my oily skin.

The Cover Stick Concealer is great for select heavy coverage, and comes in some color correcting shades as well, like green to cover redness, and yellow for when I need extra dark circle coverage. A little goes a long way, and I find it best to blend with my fingertip, then blot a little with a sponge.

I won’t leave the house without the Superstay Better Skin Powder, not only does it not cake and crease, but it’s pretty self descriptive. It stays, and it has great coverage, not heavy, but if you’re in a hurry you could totally blot this on bare skin and have a natural, even look. Along with blotting sheets, I use this through the day, and find myself needing it less than other compact powders, it actually has staying power.

These three are my must haves for oily, blemish prone skin, out of any product out there, drugstore or designer. Give them a try, let me know what you think!
