Five Favorite Beauty Buys: July 2018

July 13

Moisturizer: Kiehl’s Glow Formula Skin Hydrator
This is my favorite day moisturizer at the moment – perfect if you love a glow or dewy finish. Infused with pomegranate extract and has antioxidant protection, it’s a lightweight moisturizer I like using during the day underneath or even without make up.

Highlighter: Marc Jacobs coconut gel highlighter in Fantasy
I fell in love with this highlighter by Marc Jacobs when it launched in a radiant pearly shade, and wished they would launch it in different shades so I was excited about the new limited edition shade, Fantasy – which is a beautiful warm rose gold. Lightweight, and smells like coconut – this blends into a gorgeous natural look so it works for both day and night.
Available at Sephora

Lips: Givenchy Le Rouge Liquid
I must say I don’t have many Givenchy products in my make up kit, and this is probably the first product I’ve actually fallen in love with. Not the biggest fan of the twist applicator, but in love with everything else. A soft velvet matte, and lasts all day and night – yet incredibly hydrating thanks to it being infused with hyaluronic acid and Gatuline oil (extracted from exotic acmella flowers). I’ve been using two nude shades, 106 and 107.

Body: BCL Spa 4 step starter kit
The first time I used BCL was at a nail spa. Their treatments always feel and smell so good – I recently got the 4 step starter kit in the Milk + Honey with white chocolate scent (yum), which comes with a dead sea salt soak, sugar scrub, moisture mask and massage cream. All the products feel so good, and you could tell are made with high quality ingredients. My personal favorites are the sugar scrub and massage cream (which I use when I’m in need of major moisture).
BCL is distributed by Beautylicious

Concealer: Urban Decay all nighter concealer
When I find a good concealer, it’s like finding treasure because I rarely find ones I actually fall in love with. Love this from Urban Decay – full coverage and lasts all night – yet still not heavy and cakey. Inspired by the their best selling all nighter foundation, it’s waterproof, easy to blend and high definition.
