Much like my wardrobe, each Autumn I start craving new beauty products. I’m not sure what it is but I always yearn for something new, better, and different. This season, I might have taken it a bit further than past by CHOPPING off my long locks for a shorter, simpler ‘do but that DOESN’T mean I’ll be cutting my beauty wishlist in half. No, ma’am. Here are a few items on said list:
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Oil In Cream ($45): true enough, I received a sample in the mail back when my hair was longer. Nice smell, great amount of consistency, and gives you anti-frizz action you deserve.
Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation ($59): I love foundation, oh so much. Even when my skin is in its most glorious state, I use foundation because I love the overall look and evenness. One foundation on my “OMG-I-NEED-TO-TRY” list is the Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation. Said to provide you with a radiantly flawless and dewy look I’m more interested in the fact that they ACTUALLY HAVE shades for brown skin. You go, Glen Coco.
Guerlain Écrin 4 Couleurs Eye Shadow in 500 Les Ombres Turandot ($59): sweet, sweet Guerlain. Can you do no wrong? This quartet consists of a slight monochrome palette that makes for the most refined makeup looks. I’ve beaver tried Gerlain eyeshadows but these subtle yet beautiful shades just might send me over the edge. Plus, the elegant golden case travels in a black suede pouch with red topstitching. Oh you fancy, huh?
Speaking about Fancy, Guerlain (again) has their Liu Eye & Lip Calligraphy Palette ($79). Part of their Holiday 2012 collection, this is surely to become a beauty lover collector’s item. Drawing inspiration from the art of calligraphy and Asian beauty rituals, this palette has two dramatic shades for the lips combined with three iridescent eyeshadows and a matte black eyeliner. It’s all you need in one handy (albeit beautiful) item.
