CLINIQUE IS HAVING A MOMENT

Seriously, Clinique is so hot right now. From chubby sticks, to redesigned  packaging - currently in love with this classic line. Here are my can’t live without products as of late:

CHUBBY STICKS FOR LIPS - Heaping Hazelnut and Prettiest Petal are my must-have nudes for summer.

CHUBBY STICKS FOR EYES - I’ve been wearing Lotsa Latte every day, and even in this 25 degree weather it doesn’t budge.

LASH POWER MASCARA - lengthens, volumizes, doesn’t flake, doesn’t smudge, tubes off with water.

CC CREAM - Colour correcting, broad spectrum SPF 30, radiant, luminous, light coverage, completely undetectable. Superstar product.

SUPER CITY BLOCK - SPF 25 or 40, and a pale girls best friend. Light coverage, perfect for days where you want no fuss, skin protection perfection. 

Not the hideous turquoise packaging you remember from when you were a kid (OK, some things still are), Clinique has seriously upped their game, and I am seriously into it.

We can all die now. The Olsens have spilled their beauty secrets.

This Dior/Sephora vid is doing it for the producer/makeup-lady in me bigtime.

CURRENTLY OBSESSED WITH: ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR STAY IN PLACE EYE PENCIL
I’ve been looking for a high-end alternative to the Rimmel Scandal Eyes liners (they never fail, stay in place all damn day) and this guy is doing it for me. I luuuurve the colour range (greens! blues! purples, oh my!) and the creamy-long lasting formula is true to it’s double-wear name. I currently have the shades “Bronze” and “Forest” (aka: rust and green) and couldn’t be happier.Another win for Estee Lauder! 
$25.00 at Sephora

HAPPY BEAUTY IN 2014! XO

How to properly cleanse your face.

With a top NY facialist.

Advice from the top beauty people at Barneys.

I live for s**t like this.

My “new” neutrals palette! Although, who am I kidding? All my shadows are neutral. It’s clearly a MAC palette and so are the circle shaped shadows. The little squares are depotted from an Estee Lauder palette and the little circles are from a Lancome palette. Enjoy! Or don’t. But then… why are you here? 
TOP Row (from L to R): Samoa Sand, Bamboo, Kid, Brule, Fresco, Naked Lunch
2nd Row: Estee Lauder Sepia Sand, Plumage, Nehru, Sketch, Blackberry, Quarry, Malt
3rd Row: Smut, Satin Taupe, Club, Vex, Woodwinked, Estee Lauder Irridescent Violet, a cool Lancome brown and a warm Lancome brown (the palette was gift with purchase, lets not lie.)
The 4th row is a buncha Tarte shadows from a super old palette. Most were glittery messes but these ones were cute so I kept ‘em I did!
Thanks, all. Well. Bye!
