My last beauty post was just over a year ago, and 'top shelf-ing' yourself is a fun thing to do, so I thought I'd update on products I've been using/loving lately. Plus, my Diptyque candle finally has started its new life as a brush holder and I got a new tray from CB2, so my things look pretty and organized!
I thought I'd include a bit of skin care this time, which is all Aveda. I love their Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser, which has a subtle, but beautiful aroma and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean without over-drying. I have a large bottle of the Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion as well, which I use year round, but in the winter I use the Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme as well.
As for makeup, products I've been using daily include: Aveda Inner Light Tinted Moisturizer in Aspen (dewy skin!), NARS The Multiple in Orgasm (my usual powder blushes - NARS Desire and Gaiety - are on hold until warmer months), YSL Mascara in a burgundy shade (I wanted to try this out with my hazel eyes, but I think I'll go back to black next time), Fresh Sugar Lip Balm (this has been a favourite for awhile, and Sephora gave 2 mini ones as a birthday gift. Great birthday gift, Sephora!), Bobbi Brown Gel Liner and Brush (thanks to Bernadette for the tip), MAC Ruby Woo lipstick (Ruby Woo forever) and Chanel polish in Frenzy. Note: Do not add up the total cost of your nail polish collection, no do not do that.
I recently chopped off my hair to a chin-length cut, so I've been experimenting with products that will keep it from looking too sleek (a matte, textured look is my favourite). I'm still using Bumble and Bumble Texturizing Creme and Surf Spray, but have introduced Oribe's Apres Beach Spray as well(also, this stuff smells like watermelons).
What are your favourite products?
