Lip Gloss - Glossier - Lip Gloss - Red

20 days ago

Roughly 20 years ago, I read in Kevyn Aucoin’s Making Faces Book that every woman needs a clear red lip gloss in her makeup bag. But I have been surprised over the years how very difficult such a product was to find. Sure, I’ve collected plenty of clear coral and dark pink glosses, and red tinted lip balms, and red lip glosses with shimmer, and I tried red lipsticks sheered out and topped with …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Be There in a Prosecco

5.0

This has become one of my most-used summer pedicure colors. It’s a warm off-white with coffee undertones so it looks fantastic with sandals and a bit of a tan (fake or real). It has kind of a California casual vibe to it; Jennifer Aniston wears a similar color in her Aveeno ads which is what gave me the idea to try it myself.

Bath Treatments - LUSH - Big Blue Bath Bomb

Loved how this smelled and the turquoise shade it turned the water, but the seaweed was a huge turnoff. I got this in a gift set and had no idea about the seaweed, which seemed both unnecessary and slimy in retrospect. Really didn’t like having to clean the tub right afterward!

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss Of Color and Care Sheer Coral

Wow, surprised by the below negative reviews. I love Nivea's tinted lip balms, and this one is no exception. It has a white core (Nivea's classic lip balm formula) surrounded by dark coral tint. The coral been my go-to for early spring because it's more hydrating than lipstick (necessary in the wintry wind) and gives me a perfect sheer ripe peach tint -- super flattering on me. I …Read more

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo

5.0

I bought the small size from Sephora on a lark and I’m so glad I did. It feels amazing on the scalp — think minty tingling — and despite the fact the shampoo is a gritty grey cream that doesn’t really lather, my hair feels so freaking clean and soft afterwards. I like to use it to scrub my scalp and clarify my hair when I’ve used dry shampoo for 2-3 days in a row, which my hair seems to love but …Read more

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm

3.0

I love the look, the cotton candy smell, and the packaging, but its performance as a lip balm is meh. It’s not that hydrating and looks terrible over dry lips, so I really only use it when my lips are already in good condition due to better products. In winter, I use it layered over a more moisturizing balm for the sheer nude color payoff and sweet taste.

Lip Treatments - Glossier - Birthday Balm Dotcom

5.0

I love this way more than I thought I would. It’s a nice, thick balm with a smooth texture, microfine pastel rainbow shimmer, sweet vanilla taste, and glossy finish, so it’s really more like a super hydrating lip gloss. It isn’t sticky and lasts for a few hours if you don’t eat anything. I love the holographic packaging, too.

$12 for a 15 ml squeeze tube on Glossier.com.

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Primer

What a fantastic product! I'm on my second tube. I love how it conditions and fluffs up my lashes, and it seems to give me a few extra hours out of my mascara before it smudges or flakes. I curl my lashes, apply one coat of this -- it comes out white. Then I leave it for 5 minutes to sink in (it will turn clear when it's ready) before I apply a coat of mascara. Right now that's …Read more

Lip Treatments - Vaseline - Lip Tin - Pink Bubbly

I’ve been collecting the special Vaseline tins for years (like Creme Brûlée, Cocoa Butter, Aloe, and my favorite, Rose) but didn’t find this one until recently, at Target. It is officially my favorite of the bunch. I even love the black and pink color scheme on the packaging. It smells great (kind of peachy-rosy) and hydrates really well because it applies a bit thicker than the other formulas …Read more
