Hello lovelies! My monthly favorites are back on track. I have been trying out lots of skincare these past couple of weeks and I hope to post up some reviews soon.
1. NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover ($26 at Sephora)
On a whim I decided to try the NARS Velvet Lip Gloss pencil since I love their Satin Lip Pencils. Well bad idea because I really love these sheer glosses even more. The color is just perfect with not too much shimmer and none of the gloop of regular lip glosses in tubes. New lover is a sheer pink (almost like a nude) with some gold shine. I think ti's a perfect color for spring as the golden shine helps to warm up your complexion. It's great for everyday wear and isn't too bright or distracting.The only downside is that it's a pencil you actually have to sharpen so make sure it's sharp before you put it in your handbag!
2. Radical Skincare Hand and Nail Multi-Repair Creme ($55 at Radical Skincare)
I use this cream everyday, at least a couple times a day. I love that it immediately soaks into my skin and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. In fact, my hands feel so much softer lately because of this cream. What's great is that there are special anti-aging ingredients to also help reduce the signs of aging like spots and winkles. They also feel extra great massaged around my cuticles. (See previous post.)
3. Chanel Angled Powder Brush #2 ($60 at Chanel.com)
I use this brush everyday and I only wish I had splurged and gotten it earlier. You can only get this angled brush online at Chanel.com or in a Chanel boutique. They don't sell them at the Chanel beauty counters. Don't ask me why because this is the best brush to apply bronzer and to do subtle contouring. (See previous post.)
4. CLINIQUE Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight ($21 at Sephora)
I can't get over how easy it is to highlight with this Clinique Chubby Stick. It literally takes me seconds to get a really cool healthy glow on my face each day. I'm obsessed! (See previous post.)
5. Women's Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes in Egyptian ($16.50 at Nordstrom)
I love that I am finally straying away from black or true brown liners. This liner is a beautiful dark green color with gold flecks. These gold flecks really bring out the brown in my eyes and make my eye makeup pop! On days I don't do much, I love just putting on this eyeliner and mascara and I'm good to go. (See previous post.)
