A couple of beauty products I’m currently lusting after…
CHANTECAILLE FAUX CILS LONGEST LASH MASCARA. I know. $73 for mascara. But several beauty bloggers consistently recommend this product as the be-all, end-all ultimate mascara. I’m desperate to try!
GIVENCHY SHEER LIPSTICK IN N16. Has been described as the perfect blush-nude color.
LAURA MERCIER MATTE EYE SHADOW IN MORNING DEW. This is not a new product — have worn this color for years and years. It’s such a great basic that looks natural but adds a little brightness to the lid. My favorite everyday eye shadow, and I’m due for a restock.
RETINOL EYE STICK. I wrote about this recently, but drawn to this product for ease of application (just slick it right on!) and the notion of retinol on the undereye area!
BOBBI BROWN EXTRA LIP TINT IN BARE RASPBERRY. One of my favorite products, but want to try the darker raspberry color for fall.
OUAI POMMADE for days where I want a slicked back bun.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY FACIAL PALETTE. Love all the shimmering, happy autumn colors.
GUCCI RED NAIL POLISH. Obsessed with the color. Similar to OPI Big Apple Red, which is my salon go-to these days.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC CONCEALER. Hearing good things about this!
EPSOM SOAK. For sore running muscles!
Related to beauty: I’ve written about this in the past, but White Elephant Designs makes gorgeous personalized leather cosmetics cases that were just restocked. I love these because you can buy the pouches separately or as a set of two. Great holiday gift, as would be this ultra-chic lipstick case along with a favorite tube of lipstick!
And also — has anyone tried these heavily-hyped, highly-expensive LED masks? I am so highly dubious but several trust-worthy bloggers have raved. I think it’s too pricey for me to take the risk but so curious. Have you tried? Have you tried any other gadgets like this?
P.P.S. Sometimes self-improvement is more about “chiseling away what isn’t” versus building something new.
P.P.P.S. A reminder not to worry about things too far down the road.
