BenefitThey're Real Mascara I was late on the hype but boy, this mascara is BOMB! I know that for some of my friends, it doesn't work (they think the wand is too big) but on me, it just gives me doll lashes. I don't think I will use any other mascara! (that's what she said...to be continued)
ChanelRouge Allure Ink Liquid Matte lipsticks have been a big revolution in term of makeup, but I think that Chanel really created something great with this one. The texture is thin and comfortable, yet the finish is a perfect matte with vibrant colors, long wear and no bleeding or craking. The color 152 Choquant is my holy grail classic red.
ChanelRouge Coco Stylo Another Chanel liptsick? What can I say, they have really impressed me this year! This one has an opposite finish, which is shiny. Very shiny. Yet the color stay put all day long and the texture is so hydrating on your skin. Best part? The color doesn't fade, only the shiny finish, so even after a while, you still have a stain on your lips. My favorite color? Roman, a bright fuschia that illuminate the complexion!
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Eye I suffer from severe eye allergies and because of that, I have developed premature wrinkles around my eyes. They are more of dehydration wrinkles, but still. I am scared to death! This eye cream is just incredible, I have seen most of my wrinkle disappear. I already have one back-up and still thinking about how I will get more...
HourglassAmbiant Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat Again, I was late to catch that train, but I didn't have access to Hourglass product until this year, when I discovered they were available in the Milan Sephora. Diffushed Heat is just the perfect color to create a natural sunkissed flush because it has just the right amount of red (and if you've noticed, you get a reddish tint on your face when you get tanned), with the right amount of shimmer to gives the perfect glow.
Jojoba Oil I have always been fond of using natural oil as face moisturizer. I had never tried Jojoba though and I was so wrong. The composition of Jojoba is actually the closest to your skin sebum so it is perfect for your skin. It is non comedogenic (oily/acne skin friendly) and easily peneratre. I highly recommend it, especially in the summer, for it has a light texture. I have a new favorite!
ChanelLe Vernis Long Wear Nail Colours More Chanel? Sorry...not sorry! They reformulated their nail polish range (much needed, older version didn't last much, at least on me) and it works wonder! I have 3 colors so far, Roubashka, Shantung and Camelia, and they last a good week on me (I use a Kiko top coat), knowing that nail polish rarely last more than 3 days on me. Love the colors, love the formula! Go Chanel!
SkinceuticalsRetexturing Activator Despite all my effort, I noticed that my skin was never "perfect" (I am picky, but still...). I always noticed some tiny blemishes, little spots or bumps. This serum got rid of EVERYTHING and helped me get the complexion I was dreaming of. If you are looking for that one product to boost your skincare, that's the one!
bareMinerals Bronzer in Warmth & Faux Tan What I love the most about this bronzer is how natural it looks. It gives me a realistic tan and never looks cakey or muddy because it is mineral makeup. I used Warmth in the summer because it has a good balance of red and brown (and suits better medium to tan skin) while Faux-Tan is perfect in the colder month because it has no orange undertone, yet it looks very glowy and nice on the skin.
