1. AERIN Beauty Rose Balm Lipstick in 07 Geranium ($30 at Nordstrom)
I love my new Aerin lipstick that I've been wearing most of the month. The color Geranium looks darker in the photo than it really is. The color is a universally flattering mauve color that brings in a lot of pink. It brightens up my face and the rose balm has a soft rose sent that is very soothing. The gold case is also very luxe and it doubles as a mirror for me to apply my lipstick.
2. Celine Trio, Size small in Black (650€ in Europe, $1050 in U.S.)
I picked this up in August at Brown Thomas in Dublin, Ireland. It was something I had been lusting after for a couple of years and with the whole exchange rate and VAT tax back in Europe, it was a no brainer for me to get! Also, the store had 1 small black in stock. Kismet, right?! Even as I was about to go to Paris, I didn't want to risk it being out of stock. I've been using it everyday (minus a few here and there when I needed a big tote) since I've gotten it and it can hold a lot of daily essentials. I will do a full review on it soon. In the U.S., you can get Celine at Neiman Marcus, Barneys, Saks and Bergdorf Goodman as well as Celine boutiques.
3. Eve Lom Muslin Cloths ($20.50 for pack of 3 at Amazon)
I really wasn't a fan of the Eve Lom Cleansing Balm but I loved the muslin cloth that it came with so much that I ended up buying more. I gently pat my face clean after washing and it helps exfoliate your skin by removing dead skin cells.
4. Burberry Beauty Nude Glow Complete Eye Palette ($60 at Nordstrom)
I just rediscovered my love for Burberry Beauty with this eyeshadow quad. I always remembered that their eyeshadows were very finely milled and wanted to invest in a basic brown palette that was easily portable. I love how light this looks on my eyelids and that it's also very buildable too. You can use the shadows wet or dry and the pigmentation is just want I want. Light color that is perfect for everyday. I just love how soft it looks on my eyes, really creating a natural nude look. I plan on doing a full review on my recent Burberry Beauty purchases complete with swatches. Look for that soon!
