I’m always being asked about my favorite things.
I was given some amazing products in the lead up to Christmas, and I bought some really great items, and some of it got lost in the holiday madness and didn’t make it to the blog, but today I want to show you an assortment of my absolute favorite beauty items of the moment.
This is the cream that everyone is raving about and I can totally see why! This is a next generation super hydrating cream that holds water and nutrients to the skin, plumping it up and making it look youthful, all the while brightening it and getting rid of that dull, lifeless winter complexion. It is really, really fabulous.
(Tidal is going to be an amazing product to travel with this year too.)
I seriously want to try out the Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil which I hear is just amazing. It’s going to be the next new skin care product that I buy.
I have worn it every day for the past month and just adore it. It is pure romance.
Bloomingdale’s also gave me my new favorite mascara too.
It’s from Clarins and is called Supra Volume Mascara.
In it’s tube it is quite unassuming, and I really thought it would just be a “nice mascara”, but this one is an absolute powerhouse lash builder! It makes my lashes huge, but not gunky. They stay defined, separated, long and thick all day long. I am convinced that Supra Volume Mascara is the french girl’s secret weapon.
I was sent so many mascaras last year, most of which I never wrote about as I only talk about the products I love. This one is the real deal.
I am always looking for concealers that I can love. Most either don’t hold all day (my days are looooong! I’m constantly leaving home at 8 am and not getting back til 11 pm) or they are too heavy, which just makes you look old and tired, or they don’t color correct out the dark shadows well enough.
I am obsessed with Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I bought mine at Nordstrom before Thanksgiving and have worn it every day since. My shade is Honey, but they have tons of them, all calibrated with different undertones to color correct out your under eye demons. (10 I think?) They also have a fantastic color selection, so you can be the palest girl or the darkest goddess and they still have you covered.
They don’t crease, have a luminous finish that bounces light off, making your eye look refreshed, last all day long, and frankly are the best concealers I have used in years. Love.
From Stila I have been enjoying Aqua Glow Watercolor Blush.
The colors are fresh and pretty and the product is buildable.
I love really glowing, gorgeous complexions so often I find that powder blushes can either look heavy on the skin or deaden the glow. This one breathes life into the skin and gives it a gorgeous radiance.
Lastly, my new favorite lip product is Sephora’s Lip Stain.
They have a creamy texture but a matte finish, the colors are fabulous, and they only cost $14!!

Every time I walk past a Sephora I go in and buy another one. They are gorgeous!
