It feels like half a century since I've written about beauty, but thank heavens I'm not even that old yet. But I do apologize, beauty lovers, and I hope you've stuck around. I guess I've been so busy sampling the goodness, I got carried away.
Just to give you an idea of what I've been using over the past several months, here is my list of right-now must-haves that I rely on religiously:
PUR Eyedentity Luxe Firming Eye Cream ($49)
I put this one first because, hello, we all need an eye cream to help us look our radiant selves. And I feel like I'm doing my part against aging just by slathering this on before bed. This brand is pure (duh), so I love the ingredients and it contains a key peptide to prevent future damage. Lactic acid fights all those nasty age markers and fine lines and wrinkles say see-ya.
Michael Kors Coral Eau de Parfum ($110, 3.4-oz)
This scent launched in January and I've been using it every since. Gush! Think tropics...beach. Take me there now. Well, since I'm not leaving for several more months, this fragrance helps. If you love floral and fruity, you'll love this. Mandarin. Pink pepper. Raspberry. Orange flower. Loves it all. And gorgeous orange bottle for the counter!
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer ($15-30)
I went to Sephora yesterday just to get my hands on another one of these. There was only one left! Everyone loves this stuff - I'm personally obsessed. I once received it as a sample, and it's one of those products that even beauty bloggers buy again and again. They have cute smaller-sized versions as well for half the price at $15. But really this bronzer is the perfect amount of radiant color to brighten up your normal foundation. I use this instead of blush - it's so good.
