It’s been a while since the last time I did a roundup of beauty favorites and it’s simply because the concept of putting together The List every month is not very realistic. I guess I’m a slow tester but oftentimes when I travel, I feel like I didn’t discover that many new beauty favorites, while during other months I want to include dozens of products. So, I guess from now on it would be more realistic to talk about current beauty favorites that round up some of the beauty favorites I discovered over the course of a few months. Okay, let’s see the ones I enjoyed so far since the beginning of the year!
YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint Foundation // When my friend Amrah recommended me to try a YSL foundation, I immediately went to Sephora and picked up one. As it turned out, I picked not the one she recommended but I immediately fell in love with my new discovery. Ever since then, I’ve been religiously using it for every day and I love how natural it looks on my skin.
La Bouche Rouge Lipstick in Self Service // After a season of liquid lipstick obsession, I finally came to the conclusion that classic hydrating formula is perfect for everyday use. And this particular formula (not to mention the shade) happens to be my absolute favorite. It feels so soft on your lips and looks oh so chic!
NudeStix All Over Face Color in Sunset Strip // Perfect blush for “no makeup” makeup days or when you need to make your face in a matter of moments. Pat it on, blend with your fingertips, and you are all set with a natural looking blush. Or lipstick as it’s all in one kind of stick.
Velour Effortless False Lashes // Even though I recently published an entire post on these false lashes collection, I wanted to mention it again in this post as I’ve been wearing the style Mini Me literally non-stop. The best part is that these falsies are super easy to apply!
Fresh Beauty Black Tea Firming Eye Serum // Even before I turned 30, my under-eye area was the one showing up my age the most. Ever since I’m constantly on a hunt for a perfect under eye serum. The one I’ve been obsessing the most lately is Fresh Beauty’s new Black Tea Firming Eye Serum. It features a weightless consistency and a potent mix of skin firming ingredients that make it a must-have for my day and night time routines.
SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight Serum // I’ve always been a glycolic toner kind of girl, but this serum is a life changing! It gently exfoliates the skin while you sleep so you wake up with a baby soft and glowing complexion.
Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 // The gentle formula of this sun-protecting moisturizer works not only as your typical sunscreen but also helps with skin luminosity. In other words, it’s like wearing a moisturizer, sunscreen, and glow-enhancing primer – all in one tube.
Hydro Peptide Firm-A-Fix Nectar Serum // I’ve been testing this serum for a few weeks and seems to reverse the effects of the gravity on my gentle neck area. I also don’t mind the wrinkle-smoothing effect on my décolletage that the serum provided. Because, hey, summer dresses season is almost here, and I need to be prepared!
BODY AND TOOLS
Borghese Body Cream // This luxurious body butter is the one and the only reason I’ve been consistent with moisturizing my body this winter. It’s rich, but not too thick; easy to absorb, but not too watery; smells fantastic, but doesn’t overpowering… What else can I say? I finally discovered my ideal body butter product!
Sundays Nail Polish in L01 // To say that I’ve been wearing this nail color non-stop is to say nothing. It would be more accurate to say that this is my signature nail polish shade – that’s how much I’ve been loving it! Oh, almost forgot to mention it looks even better if combined with Londontown KUR Gel Genius Top Coat. Think salon-style gel nail from the comfort of your home.
Laura Mercier Brushes // I did a major Mary Kondo clean-up of my makeup brushes and LM brushes ones are pretty much the only ones I’ve been using lately. And I’m totally obsessed!
Weezie Makeup Towels // These are so convenient to use after you wash your face. Not only dark color helps to camouflage any makeup leftovers after you wash your face, but also look super cute. I have a set with lashes and another one with hearts and I literally can’t get enough of these!
