10 Things I’m Loving Right Now

10 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Happy Wednesday! I’m rounding up 10 Things I’m Loving Right Now. A few of these I’ve mentioned on my Instagram Stories and thought I’d add some more detailed thoughts and include some swatches!

Shimmer Body Oils

Summer Fridays Pool Time Oil vs Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Oil

As a lover of a good body oil I ordered the new Summer Fridays Pool Time Glowing Body Oil from Sephora and love it! This is a limited-edition product and has a lightweight feel with a subtle glow. There is shimmer in it but it’s subtle on the skin. It has a coconut beach like scent that I find really subtle. I personally love the scent of the Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil (which I find feels a tiny bit more textured in the shimmer) but they are both really lovely for summer. I have the mini shown, also available in a full size option.

If you love shimmer body oils, tell me if you think I need to try the Sunday Riley Fairy Godmother or the Anastasia Beverly Hills Shimmer Body Oil.

Lip Favorites

Lip Favorites Huda, Too Faced, Hermes and Fresh

I have quite a few new lip loves! The new Huda Beauty Lip Contour 2.0 Automatic Lip Pencils are creamy, opaque and super long wearing. These have a twist up style but there is also a sharpener in the cap to sharpen just the product. I ordered the neutrals sight unseen and have been loving Sandy Beige and Terracotta the most.

Huda Beauty Lip Contour 2.0 Automatic Lip Pencils

I also really love the Huda Power Bullet Cream Glow Hydrating Lipsticks – they are creamy, opaque, smooth and have a good range of neutrals in pink and beige tones. I really love Honey Bun for my perfect neutral peach pink nude. I have a few more of these in my shopping cart. They have a pleasant, sweet smell to them, almost like cake!

Huda Power Bullet Cream Glow Hydrating Lipsticks

I’ve been a huge fan of the Too Faced Hangover Pillow Balm and could not be more thrilled they launched tinted flavored versions. They have a slight cooling sensation. Pigment is very very sheer but I think the flavors are really fun. My favorites are Mango and Banana. The only one I’m not a huge fan of is Cocoa Kiss because it smells like a Lip Smacker. Not a deal breaker, but just doesn’t give me the cocoa vibe as the name implies.

Too Faced Hangover Pillow Balm

I still reach for Fresh Sugar Balms the most these days (currently 25% off online at Sephora). I like the Sugar Advanced Therapy the most. For the flavored Sugar Hydrating Lip Balms I love the Coconut, Lime Mint and Lychee. I think they make some of the best scented lip balms on the market.

Also still loving the Hermes Rosy Lip Enhancer Lip Tints! Full review + swatches in this post here.

Chanel Loves

Chanel Les Eaux de Chanel Paris-Riviera Paris-Biarritz

I love all things Chanel and I find myself reaching for their bases quite frequently these days. For a good lightweight summer base I like the Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Moisturizing Tint with SPF30. I wear the shade Medium or Medium Plus. It offers a sheer lightweight finish that adds a subtle glow. For more coverage with a higher SPF the CC Cream is also one I swear by especially for the summertime.

I’ve shown a few of the Chanel Les Eaux de Chanel perfumes I have. I love the travel size options because they’re purse friendly! My top two favorites are Paris-Riviera and Paris-Biarritz and as a citrus lover, I cannot pick between the two. Paris-Riviera is the more tangy sweet version, it has a mix of Sicilian Orange and Neroli I feel this is the slightly bolder version. Paris-Biarritz has Sicilian Mandarin and Lily of the Valley. It also has a bright vibe but has a slightly softer feel.

I’m super curious about the newest one Paris-Edimbourg, but also have my eye on the Dior Eden-Roc which I got a mini sample of and love (has a similar vibe to Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt), and the new Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis Cologne Forte. Trying to decide on my next splurge!

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Mist

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Mist

Last but not least, my latest love is the Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Mist. I also like the Rinse-Free Hand Wash version which is a lightweight gel but sometimes it’s nice to have a misting option! Both are also available in this cute Adventurer Roll Up Trio Set too. I did try the Geranium Leaf Version as well but I prefer the scent of the Resurrection formula. I cannot find the listing right now but the last time I checked the Aesop website these were listed as having 60% alcohol.

Loewe Square Basket Tote White, Tory Burch Basket Weave Sandals, Clear Makeup Bag

Also featured in this post: Loewe Square Raffia Tote (unboxing and quick modeling in this Birthday Haul reel), Celine pouch, The Daily Edited Clear Makeup Bag, Tory Burch Basket-Weave Sandals (love!!! runs true to size), Sunnies Celine

That wraps up my 10 Things I’m Loving Right now! Would love to hear what you’re loving these days. Have you tried anything in my roundup yet? What did you think?

Soft Bronze Makeup for a Natural Glow

April 23, 2021

Soft Bronze Makeup Look Picks from NARS, Dior, Hermes

As the weather warms up I can’t help but be excited to wear warmer bronzy tones. I’ve been playing with a few new launches for summer beauty and today I’ve partnered with Nordstrom to share some favorites for a soft bronze makeup glow.

Soft Bronze Makeup Look Picks from NARS, Dior, Hermes

BASE

Best Summer Tints Chanel CC Cream, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

For a good makeup base I always love trying new formulas that launch this time of year, but my usual go-to’s have been the Chanel CC Cream (for high SPF and good coverage, I wear B40) or the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (I wear 3N1 Sand or 3W1 Bisque) for no-makeup makeup days.

A number of you asked for a review of the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (with SPF30) and it’s one I used to wear a lot. They recently extended the shade range and I think it’s a good base that doesn’t really feel like your traditional tinted moisturizer. It’s more of a sheer-medium coverage base with a minimal dewy effect which I actually like better. My color is St. Moritz. (What I’m wearing in this post.)

BRONZER

NARS Summer Solstice Bronzing Cheek Duo

NARS Summer Solstice Bronzing Cheek Duo vs Laguna

There are a number of new bronzers out and I will have a roundup soon. If I could pick one classic for my skin tone it would be the NARS Bronzing Powders in Laguna or Laguna Matte. Both offer a soft tan bronzed effect on the skin without looking orange. If you’re fair and have trouble finding bronzers light enough in color you might want to check out their lighter shades in Vallarta (matte formula) or San Juan (regular formula).

They recently launched a few items in the Summer Solstice collection and I ordered the Summer Solstice Cheek Duo which smells amazing like their body oil glow! It smells like a tropical vacation. The Duo has an ultra sheer finish and texture which is perfect for me. I think it’s lovely for a super soft diffused kind of glow. If you want a more subtle bronze or contour this is perfect. For a bronzer brush I really like the Laura Mercier Bronzing Brush for a fluffy large option. (This duo is what I’m wearing in the photos in this post.)

NARS Laguna Bronzer Swatches

EYE MAKEUP

Copper Bronze Eyeshadows Laura Mercier, Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury

For eyes I’m a huge lover of one-and-done bronze copper tones, especially cream shimmers. My favorites are the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eyeshadow in Copper (best neutral copper that isn’t too warm), Hourglass Scattered Light in Burnished (love the sparkle on this), Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadows in Star Gold and Bette (I wear these weekly). For liner if you want definition but don’t want something has harsh as a deep black or brown, I highly recommend checking out the Sisley Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof in Sparkling Brown. It is a gorgeous shimmery brown with silver flecks and glides on without tugging.

Swatches below with a few others added in the Hourglass Scattered Light in Foil and Chantecaille Luminescent Eye Shade in Lion for reference (more gold than bronze).

Copper Bronze Eyeshadows Laura Mercier, Hourglass, Charlotte Tilbury swatches

NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette review

I also picked up the NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow palette and think it’s a winner. The texture and pigment is incredible with every shade. It has a good mix of shimmers, metallic, sparkle and mattes. Red tones can be a bit intimidating but I decided to give this one a chance and it’s a solid winner.

NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette review

LIP PICKS

Spring to Summer Lips Dior and Hermes

For lips instead of bronze to match bronzer, I love wearing warm beige, peach or gold tones so the look isn’t too monochromatic. I’m a huge fan of the Dior Lip Maximizers for plump and shine. They are nice throw on the lips for a polished look. I love 16 Nude Shimmer which is a sheer gold beige. I just hauled the newest one for summer 23 Shimmer Bronze which is a coppery almost orange shade with a hint of shimmer.

If you want shine with a bit more pigment and color the Dior Addict Stellar Glosses are really nice. I have a number of colors in this formula and really love J’Adior, D-Light and Mirrored.

Hermes Satin Lipsticks are pure luxury. Beige Kalahari is a neutral pink beige and Beige Tadelak is a peachy color perfect for summer. Both are easy to wear and I think will be flattering for a wide range of skin tones.

Spring to Summer Lips Dior and Hermes swatches

Dior Lip Maximizer Nude Shimmer, Bronze Shimmer, Hermes Lipstick Beige Kalahari and Beige Tadelak

That wraps up my roundup for soft bronze makeup favorites I’m loving right now. I am particularly impressed with the NARS Summer Solstice Cheek Duo and Eyeshadow Palette.

Best Hair Care Sephora Sale

The Sephora Spring Savings Event starts on 4/9 for Rouge Members! I’ve put together my list of top recommendations in a 3 part series: Hair, Skin and Makeup. I’m kicking off the first roundup with my top picks for hair care.

The event is available to Rouge Members first for early access online and in store. The dates and savings by tier are listed below. Some exclusions and limits apply. Use code OMGSPRING at checkout to redeem offer:

  • Rouge Members Save 20% off 4/9 to 4/19

  • Insiders Save 10% off 4/15 to 4/19

Here are my favorites for hair care split by category. I’ve tested so much product over the years and I’m one who washes my hair almost daily. I go through a lot of shampoo and conditioners. I neglected masks for a while but started using them again and am so amazed at how good some are. I didn’t realize how dry my hair was!

Best Shampoo and Conditioners

Best Shampoo + Conditioners and Hair Masks

My three go-to brands at Sephora for shampoo and conditioner these days are Olaplex, Oribe and Briogeo. I don’t use a clarifying shampoo or product regularly but I really like the rinse from dpHUE. What I use and repurchase the most frequently:

Best Hair Mask

My go-to mask has been the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair. When I had more noticeable highlights I also really loved the Christophe Robin Shade Variations (available in different tones). It lasts about 3-5 washes. For an at home darkening product I also loved the Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask in Cocoa. This worked really well when I had some brassy highlights that were growing out and I wanted a temporary color at home (also only lasts about 5 washes for me).

For a deeper condition I can’t rave enough about the one from Kiehl’s. It’s one I just recently discovered and I’m 100% obsessed. If I could just pick one, it would be the Kiehl’s for non-color treated hair. For color-treated hair plus tint I really love Christophe Robin.

One from the archives, hair highlights from 2018. Shine is thanks to the Christophe Robin Shade Variation Hair Mask in Warm Chestnut.

Christophe Robin Hair Mask Variations Chestnut

Best Dry Shampoo + Styling Favorites

Best Hair Care Styling Products

For dry shampoo I try to keep this to a minimum because I find it can build up. In Florida with the heat and humidity + sweat if I’m outdoors there is no skipping a wash. I do like some of these to add texture though. Ones I really love:

Best Hair Styling: Hold + Shine

For styling these are products I like to either add hold or shine:

Best Heat Protectants or Primers

If you blow dry or heat treat your hair, here are the best heat protectants I’ve tried:

Misc.

Dyson Airwrap Styler

Andrew bought the Dyson Airwrap Complete Set for me over Christmas and I absolutely love it. I have not yet reviewed it but hope to soon. The Complete Set is usually almost always sold out. They do have some bundles pop up every once in a while like the Airwrap Styler Limited-Edition Gift Set (same as the complete but with an added pouch).

During the holiday I’m that person who is almost impossible to find a present for. I finally found something beauty-related that I wouldn’t buy for myself but still kind wanted. I held off mainly because I already own the Supersonic Hair Dryer.

I have not used the Supersonic since I got the Airwrap in December. I love the versatility of the Airwrap version and attachments are easy to use. Power-wise I feel like the Supersonic is stronger in the airflow and is also easier to use with a traditional round brush. The Airwrap is still very powerful and I find it gentler on my hair.

Dyson Airwrap Styler

I’ve tried all the attachments. Review very soon! I did buy the 1.2 inch Long Barrel Attachment curlers which is best for my hair length. In December the set barrels worked just fine but I have not had a hair cut in a few months and find the longer barrels work better.

Loving Right Now Beauty Favorites | The Beauty Lookbook

Happy Friday! I’m rounding up a few things I’ve been loving right now. I have a mix of things for hair, lips, nails and more I’ve had in rotation. As always I’d love to hear yours as well!

Hair Care Loves

Anti-Frizz Hair Oils and Serums | The Beauty Lookbook

For hair care there are four things I’ve been loving lately! I’ve still been obsessed with the Living Proof Instant De-frizzer to help smooth out the hair. It dispenses a super fine mist. I spray on dry hair and brush it through. I’ve gone through several minis of this one!

I remember back in the day when the original Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom was in every magazine and considered a cult classic. Did you use this in the early 2000s? Or do you still use it? I haven’t used Kiehl’s haircare in quite some time but ordered the Silk Groom Serum and the Smoothing Oil-Infused Leave-In Concentrate to try and am 100% obsessed. I’ve been using both as a pre-heat treatment before blow drying. Out of the two I prefer the Silk Groom Serum because it has a more lightweight feel. It really does help smooth hair and add shine without weighing it down.

The Smoothing Oil-Infused Leave-In Concentrate has a sweeter scent to it, it’s also a bit heavier but not too heavy. If you have super dry hair I’d recommend this one. For me I like to add it on the ends (dry).

For those who want the best of the best, I still feel the Hair Rituel by Sisley Precious Hair Care Oil is the best hair oil I’ve tried.

Tinted Lip Oils

Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss

For lips I’ve re-discovered my Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss for a soft balm like oil/gloss in one. The colors are perfect for everyday, I want to order a few more shades. Colors shown New Romantic and In the Buff, but I’ve also swatched two others I have.

Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss swatches

Bobbi Brown Loves

Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer and Eye Base

The Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer has been a long-time favorite and I started using it again in conjunction with the Vitamin Enriched Eye Base. I like both for a good everyday moisturizer cream for the face and eyes. I like the Eye Base because it’s creamy but not too heavy or thick.

Neutral Nails

Favorite OPI Neutrals Tiramisu for Two, Pale to the Chief, Samoan Sand, Machu PeachU

I just did a fun Pink and Red nail polish roundup, but the OPI Neutrals still have my heart. I feel Samoan Sand is the best everyday neutral clean polished beige that makes my hands look more put together. I also really love Pale to the Chief, Tiramsu for Two and Machu Peach-U.

Favorite OPI Neutrals Tiramisu for Two, Pale to the Chief, Samoan Sand, Machu PeachU swatches

Glowy Base Favorites

Glow Base Essentials Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath

For my base, the top items I’ve been reaching for the most are the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation (I wear B40 or BD41, swatched here) and the Chanel Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops (swatched here and here).

As always I rely on the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter almost daily for a natural glow (I wear 3, 4 and 4.5 depending on how glowy I want to be, swatches here).

I’ve also still been loving Pat McGrath Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation (Light Medium 14, review here) and the Pat McGrath Sublime Perfection Concealer (swatches here) for a good everyday base.

My New Favorite Eyeshadow Palette

Too Faced Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

For the eyes, my latest discovery is the Too Faced The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. This launched a while ago and it had been on my radar for a while. I was worried it might be too warm or glittery but it’s actually perfect. I think this may be my new favorite eyeshadow palette of the year! Let me know if you want a full review + swatches.

Current Mascara Obsession

Maybelline Sky High Mascara

Last but not least, I have been obsessed with the Maybelline Sky High Mascara. I’ve tried both the regular and waterproof version and like them both. It’s still pretty hard to find online but I’ve seen it restock several times at Target, Ulta and Walmart. If you haven’t tried it I highly recommend giving it a look! It’s one of the few rubber applicators that actually works for me!

What have you been loving lately? New reviews coming soon including the Pat McGrath Divine Rose Collection (spoiler alert is that it’s amazing), new Chanel and some NARS newness too.

Flowers

Venus Et Fleur Beauty Look Book

above, Venus Et Fleur roses over several months

Best treat to me are flowers whether you’re looking for something simple or something a little extra! Some of you may remember Andrew bought me a box from Venus Et Fleur when we were still in San Diego and they truly last at least a full year. They have a special preserving process that keeps them looking fresh and beautiful for a long time. I love the single Le Mini Round Rose and the Le Mini Square too.

I recently ordered a few bouquets from Urban Stems and really liked them! They come nicely packaged in a delivery box and you can add on extras like candies or vases.

 

____________

Favorite lip products

I think the best thing to treat yourself with is a new lip product. The best long-wear mattes are from Pat McGrath Labs and she just launched her new Divine Rose II Collection with some new colors! (Review coming soon.) Anytime someone wants a recommendation for the best matte lip I always recommend the Pat McGrath MatteTrance.

The Bite Beauty Millennial Pinks Mini Power Move Creamy Matte set is still available and I highly recommend the formula and colors.

If you’re not into a lot of color and are more of a balm person, splurge-worthy picks include the Dior Addict Lip Glow Lip Balm & Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss Set, Hourglass Lip Oil, La Mer Lip Volumizer and Too Faced Hangover Rx Pillow Balm.

____________

Nail polishes + Hand Care

For the person who doesn’t wear makeup you can always pick out a fun nail polish or hand cream. OPI and Essie are my friends’ favorites. I’m personally team OPI and they just launched their Hollywood Collection for spring and I’m in love with all the colors! Hand creams from Molton Brown and L’Occitane are a few of my favorites to gift away. If you want to splurge extra Chanel makes the most chic hand creams (and the formulas are really good!).

____________

Things for the Home + Fun Gifts

A few useful and functional things I use everyday are my makeup bags from The Daily Edited, Lululemon Water Bottle and Yeti Tumblers and Diptyque candles. To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Diptyque they’ve launched their Hypnotic Graphic Collection with their best sellers in limited-edition jars. Roses is the prettiest one! Available in the standard size and also a cute Trio Set with the small candles.

To store bracelets and necklaces I have two T-Bar stands from Kendra Scott (often seen on stories, you can see them in action on my HOME highlights @beautylookbook) For something more fun or unique the Fujifilm Instax 11 Instant Print is really fun (comes in a wide range of colors) and there’s a super cute bundle here. As a candy lover I love all things from Sugarfina – the Love Letters Tasting Box looks fun (I ordered one for myself).

 

 

Hope this give you some fun ideas!
