I might be a hoarder of lots of things, but beauty products isn’t one of them. When it comes to my beauty stash, I prefer having fewer products while treating myself to something special. That way, every time I get ready to go out, it feels like I’m pampering myself. This month was all about completing my collection with a few chic essentials.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boy – I’ve had this shade of lipstick on my list for the longest time. I don’t know what took me so long to try it, but I’m so happy that I finally did. It’s the perfect nude pink shade and enhances the colour of my lips in the most flattering way. The formula is lightweight and super comfortable on the lips. It’s similar to a gloss in terms of the texture and the wear, which means that it won’t last a super long time, but that’s ok, it’s Chanel!
Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder – This is one of those products that I didn’t realize I needed until I started using it. It does a phenomenal job at setting under-eye concealer and brightening the entire eye area. Even though the powder is white, it blends into the skin easily making dark circles disappear. The secret is in the formula – if you look closely, you’ll notice flecks of shimmer in the powder, but don’t get scared because it doesn’t show up as a glittery mess. Instead, you look well-rested and perfectly flawless all day long.
No Bleeding Lips – I’ve talked about this product before (here), and since then it has become a staple in my beauty kit. If you love to wear bright or dark lipsticks, you need this in your life. Simply line the outside of your lips with this invisible pencil and it’ll prevent your lipstick from bleeding out in that oh-so-attractive way that it can after a long night. Whenever I decide to wear brighter shades, I make sure to apply this first, then apply my lipstick and blot several times to set the colour. It’s the best way to keep your lips looking beautiful all night long.
