3. I discovered an amazing hot yoga studio in my town.
4. I jumped in my horseback riding lesson for the first time in five years. Stayed on.
5. I fell in love with cotton maxi skirts.
Here are the products that got me through it all…
1. Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in #1 Pink
After testing out the Bobbi Brown Corrector and the Armani Master Corrector in Holt Renfrew one afternoon, I easily settled on this one. I found the Bobbi Brown had a great colour selection, but the formula just seemed so sticky and cakey in comparison. The Master Corrector was a little more pricey, but the formula is exquisitely fluid, yet still very pigmented and blendable. I now use this under my Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Undereye Concealer and the combination erases all signs of darkness, while still looking like skin up close.
2. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Charmed
I picked this up while I was in Atlantic City and I am so completely in love with this little crayon. They are long lasting, non drying, don’t bleed, and have buildable colour payoff – from very sheer to full colour. I can’t wait to pick up more of these once they are finally released in Canada!
3. Shisedo The Skincare – Eye Moisture Recharge
Although I have normal to combination skin, the skin under my eyes tends to get dehydrated. I have a hard time finding an eye cream that not only combats dehydration lines and flakiness, but will also wear nicely under makeup. If the formula is too rich, it can break apart your makeup, making it look thick, separated, and creased. Not enough moisture, and your concealer will start to flake, cake, and make fine lines more apparent. This Eye Moisture Recharge from Shisedo is the perfect balance between a great skincare product and a great canvas my concealer. It is a gel-cream texture and feels light and smooth, yet hydrating at the same time.
4. Stila Stay All Day 10 in 1 HD Beauty Balm
This is my first ever BB cream and it has quickly become one of my favourite bases. I like to use it alone to even out my skin, and also as a primer under my foundation on nights out. When used alone, it has a VERY light coverage. The finish is radiant, yet still matte and somehow manages to make my skin look very smooth and refined. It helps keep oil at bay and helps keep the rest of my makeup (blush, bronzer, etc) in place during a long, and hot day. I wore this in humid 30 degree heat while walking a golf course for 5 hours and although I was sweaty, I was SO impressed with how my skin looked afterward! It has the same effect in terms of staying power when used as a foundation primer, and is the perfect smooth canvas for laying under makeup. I am not really sure about the “10 in 1”, as I do not use it often enough to experience and long term skin benefits from it, but I will definitely always have a tube of this on hand. Photographs beautifully. Did not cause my sensitive skin to break out even after extended use.
5. Steam Cream
If you don’t know what Steam Cream is, it is a “natural” all-purpose cream for your face, body, and hands. There is only one formula of Steam Cream – a basic softening cream made with oatmeal and lavender. If you love the smell of lavender, you will love this. It smells exactly like the Lush cleanser Angels on Bare Skin. The fun thing about Steam Cream is that it comes in a variety of beautiful collectable reusable tins. I am very wary about trying new products on my face as I breakout easily when I try new things, but I have been using this as my Night Cream for about a month now and I have really been enjoying it! I purchased the “Big Ben” tin from Asos.
6. Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
This item was part of a giveway prize that I won. This is just a beautiful product. The texture is kind of like a thick paste and it is insanely moisturizing. It leaves your lips looking healthy but matte. It is also the best lipstick base I have ever encountered. I have been getting a lot of use out of lipsticks that always seemed to look a bit dry and flakey on the lips thanks to this lipbalm. I actually went out and bought another pot of this so that I could keep one in my purse and one beside my bed!
