Even though I’d say that, on a daily basis, my beauty routine is very simple, I love learning about new products and sharing them with all of you.
When I asked you all what you wanted to see more of on the blog this fall, a lot of you said beauty. But also that when it comes to beauty that you wanted to see and know more about my personal opinion about products and to actually see them in action, rather than just a collage of “hey this is a good one, go buy it.” So I hear you and I’m going to start to do a better job of showing products to you, as well as adding some video in the very near future!
I talk a lot about versatile clothing pieces that work hard for you, but I’m also looking for the same when it comes to beauty. As a mom, I quickly run out of room in my purse/diaper bag/whatever I’m carrying, so minimal, effective beauty products are key. When I’m out, I always carry my YSL Touche Eclat Highlighter for a quick touch up (and to make me look more awake), a quick and easy-to-apply pen eyeliner like the Le Metier de Beaute Precision Liquid Liner or the Laura Mercier Instant Ink Pen Liner, and some sort of fragrance (I’m currently loving this Jo Malone Basil & Neroli).
All of these things are hard-working products that are long-lasting, easy and quick.
That’s why I also like these Priming Lip Wands from Manna Kadar Cosmetics. They have a built in primer, so they last a really long time and the product is SO smooth. I’m telling you, it’s one of the softest lip products I’ve ever used and I really love how my lips feel when I’m wearing it. The wear time is also pretty awesome. When I wear it, I find myself re-applying mid day (mostly just to get a little more moisture on my lips because I like to sort of feel like I have a lip product on) and that’s it!
The lip wands come in three colors: J’Adore (a blush nude), Joie (a muted rose) and Tarte (a punchy peach). A set of all of them is perfect and you could really easily carry all 3 around with you, just in case you’re in need of a lipstick change as your mood changes!
