SK-II Facial Treatment Masks & Mask-In Lotion– Polar Vortex, meet your nemesis! Whether you indulge your complexion with an insanely skin-quenching mask or take the easy route (like me) with the Mask-In Lotion, you’re going to love, love, love these products. I know the Mask-In Lotion can be a little confusing, because it’s not what you typically think of as a mask or a lotion. Regardless of the name, it provides all the benefits of a mask in liquid form – brilliant!!! Apply it after washing your face and before serums, treatment products and moisturizer. I use it morning and night and can’t imagine what my skin must have been like before it.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick – They got the name right, because envy is what everyone will be feeling when you wear this lipstick. Not only does it have the most beautiful, brilliant color payoff, but the pigments actually help give your lips greater definition. It’s smooth and creamy and gorgeous! I suppose that’s what you actually want to know. P.S. The amaze Carolyn Murphy, seen in the super chic ads, was actually talking about this very lipstick (shade Envious – of course!) when asked backstage at the Michael Kors Show about her fave beauty products. I also love Defiant Coral and Impassioned for spring.
M.A.C. Boot Black Liner – Admittedly, I’m kind of a liner snob. I prefer liquid or gel to most pencils; like a matte finish (no patent shine to my line please!); and regardless of formula, it needs to glide-on smoothly and stay put. This liner does the trick and it’s easy to build on, so when it’s time to add a little drama to that lash line – done!
Smashbox Full Exposure Palette – This is big … Not only does the palette include 14 spectacular shades of neutral shadow, a double-ended brush, and mini mascara, it also comes with a complete booklet of looks specific to eye shape! It’s so, so smart Smashbox! I don’t think anyone has done looks based on eye shape before, and understanding how shadow can help your eyes look bigger, smaller, more evenly balanced … Well, it may forever change how you look at makeup in the best possible way. This is definitely something everyone should be excited about!
Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara – My first tube is finished. I, of all people, know this! I need to throw it out and buy a new one, but I can’t seem to get past the thought that I may toss it and not have time to snag a replacement the same day. I literally don’t want to go a day without it … Maybe I’m addicted. Maybe I’m okay with that, because my lashes have never looked better.
bliss Pink Grapefruit & Aloe Body Butter and Wash – Yet another way I’m combatting this cold weather craziness! The smell of grapefruit instantly changes my attitude (even if it’s sub-zero outside), and the aloe makes this more summery citrus smelling than candy-coated fruit if you catch my drift. Since the forecast isn’t calling for sunshine anytime soon, this is my perfect daily getaway. xx
