Lately, I’ve been using a few new beauty products and wanted to share those with you as well as some old staples. I would consider my beauty routine pretty low maintenance, it takes me less than 10 minutes to do my make up every morning. Over the years I’ve found some products that are tried and true and some not as good as others. I’d like to think it’s still a work in progress finding that one specific beauty product that’s perfect but these are the ones I am using now.
Marc Jacobs Coconut Face Primer– I was a little hesitant to try this at first because I thought Marc Jacobs designs clothes, what does he know about beauty. Thanks to Instagram though I kept seeing it all over the place so I decided to grab a sample to try. This is honestly the best face primer I’ve ever tried and I’ve used Bare Minerals, Smashbox, and NARS before, but none of them compare to this primer. It goes on very smooth and you only need a little to go a long way. I was worried with the coconut that it might make my face look oily but it gives it such a hydrating feel and doesn’t look oily at all. Plus, it wears well throughout the day and keeps my makeup looking fresh.
CHANEL Le Lift Eye Crème– Eye cream is one of those products I am completely obsessed with. I put on my eye cream religiously twice a day and probably would three times a day if I could. I have always been obsessed with eye cream and I am not sure why, I guess I am trying best to keep those darn wrinkles away. I started using this one a few years ago and honestly I am not sure why. I think one of my friends who worked at CHANEL talked me into it and I’ve loved it ever since. I used to use Shiseido Benefiance and it’s probably just as good and cheaper. My mom has been using it for years and it definitely works for her, the woman has no wrinkles. Maybe one day I will go back to using it again.
CHANEL Le Weekend-This is a great exfoliator for the weekends and gives wonderful hydration. It has rose water and glycolic acid which is gradually released. I usually do this on Sundays or when we aren’t going anywhere for the day. Sometimes I’ll put on at night as well for a little exfoliation.
CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Lip– The color is 136, Mèlodieuse a beautiful bold color of pink and orange for the season. These are my most favorite lip colors, they have a lot of pigment in them so the color is nice and rich. Plus, I find CHANEL lip colors to always be wonderfully hydrating and lasting. Something else I also use to help my lip color stay on during the day is Aesop Rosehip Seed Lip Cream which I picked up in Paris. I am not sure how it stays on, but the sales lady recommended it to me when I asked for something to keep lipstick on during the day. It truly works but you have to order the product online unless you have and Aesop near you.
Byredo Hand Cream– Now that the weather is getting warmer I’ve started using this hand cream once again. I don’t usually use during the Winter months because I need something heavier like my go to L’Occitane. I have an addiction for expensive hand creams, don’t ask me why, just one of those things.
I’ll start keeping you posted as I try new items especially for the Summer. Would love to know your go to beauty products.
