Hi Lovelies! I haven't done a monthly favorites in a while so better late than never. Stay tuned as I have lots of great beauty stories coming up for you this month! More Korean beauty and also reviews on some new products and brands I've been trying out. Tomorrow I'll be posting up my current daily makeup routine. I've found that I've been loving a select few makeup products that I can't stop using them!
Have a great day!
1. Clarins Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadow ($25 at Clarins USA)
This cream to powder iridescent eyeshadow is my favorite from their entire spring makeup line. (See my review of the Clarins Spring Makeup Collection.) I wear Silver Pink and Silver Plum on a daily basis. You don't need any eye primer and it's best to apply with your finger tips. I love how buildable the shadows are. I love a nice light shimmer for day and the colors really compliment my complexion for a natural highlight glow.
2. Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo in Message ($37 at Chanel.com)
These moisturizing and glossy lipsticks from Chanel are everything! I have it in two colors but find myself gravitating towards Message more often than Article (soft coral pink). This is the color that Keira Knightly wears in the Rouge Coco Stylo campaign. I'm not an everyday red lipstick kind of gal and this one really feels different. I've worn it casually in the day and also for an evening out. The color just works with everything! (See my Coquette review.)
3. True Botanicals Pacific Cleanser ($48 at True Botanicals)
I love all of the True Botanical products but there's nothing like the feeling of this cleanser on your skin. It's so smooth when you apply it to your face. Your skin feels clean but not dry afterwards. It definitely feels amazing! (See Coquette review.)
4. Superga x Jennifer Meyer Sneakers ($149 at Zappos)
I'm ready for spring with these super comfy pink classic Superga 2750 sneakers with a cute arrow charm, thanks to jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer's touch. I've gotten so many compliments on them, it's not even funny. Perfectly paired with boyfriend jeans or a casual dress/skirt, these sneakers will see me through summer adventures for sure! Also comes in black and light blue. If you are in SF, head over to the Superga store on Filmore Street. (See Coquette post)
5. The Ramblers by Aidan Donnelley Rowley ($17.43 at Amazon)
This book that centers around the lives of three intertwined 34 year olds is a page turner! I was transported to New York and to The Ramble, t36 acre wild garden in Central Park where one of the main characters, Clio would host her bird watching tours. Each character was going through a major turning point in their life and it was great to be a part of their thought process. I found the entire book really satisfying. it was the first book since Circling the Sun that I read within a few weeks. Definite, page turner!
