New Beauty Favorites

So, lately I have been testing out every beauty product I can get my hands on and after much obsessive trial and error (so what else is new?), I have fallen in love with a few new gems that I just had to share…

Chanel Mousse Douceur & Lotion Douceur - Despite my super dry skin, this is not the most moisturizing option of the bunch (that’s the blue one) but yet it’s still gentle, not drying and leaves skin with a clean, radiant finish that’s perfectly primed for moisturizer. Plus they sure do look pretty on your bathroom counter.

Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin C Serum & Vitamin E Eye Balm - Two beauty brands I love joined forces and made two really amazing products – especially for those of us with thirsty skin. The serum is brilliant under moisturizer at night (hello wakeup glow!) and the eye cream is luxurious as can be.

Chanel Glossimer in Blizzard #19 - The Chanel lip glosses are hands down the best ones out there and this color is the perfect “natural lip color” shade while also being super pop-shimmery and glamorous.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - I was waiting for this product to come out and actually went to the store the day it arrived to pick it up. It’s illuminating, covers under-eye darkness, and also stays all day. Seriously – get it.

Dr. Jart Nourishing Beauty Balm - I have been foundation hopping for months and this is definitely the star of my recent findings. Considering it’s a BB Cream, it’s low maintenance with lots of benefits, but it also gives really great coverage, basically erases pores, and wears well throughout the day. Miracle product right here.

Chanel eyeshadow quad in Mystic Eyes - This is my first time trying Chanel shadows and I am beyond impressed. They are so blendable and pigmented and the quads come in the best color combos – this one is so perfect for an elevated everyday/mildly smokey eye look.

NARS Eyeliner Stylo - This is big. I was an avid gel eyeliner user until I got frustrated with the way it would migrate around my eye area and transfer to the upper lid. This pen changed my life. It takes a few times to get used to applying it with precision but it is so on point and will not go anywhere all day long. I’m completely obsessed with both the black and blue ones and now I need the green and gray to complete the collection.

So, any new products you can’t live without these days?

    I love a lot of your choices. Adore Chanel eyeshadows and loving the NARS eyeliner stylos and concealer. Now I want to try the Chanel skincare. I have been loving the NARS lip pencils – all three formulas (satin velvet gloss and velvet matte) are fabulous.
