April Beauty Favorites


I thought I would share some of my new makeup and beauty products I have picked up over the last month. I would love to hear about any great beauty finds you have come across lately. 

1.Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer- I have tried so many under eye concealers over the years and while I do have a few favorites {here and here} this concealer has won all sorts of awards so I thought I would give it a a try. I have been applying after my corrector and it seems to be working pretty well. It gives a smooth and even finish and doesn't cake up. I think the trick with any of these concealers is moisturizing first and also patting and not rubbing in the concealer. 

2. Nars mini blush and bronzer-this duo brings together two of my favorites from Nars-the Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzing powder.  I carry this little compact in my handbag and use it for on the go touch ups. 

3. La Mer eye balm intense-I have been using La Mer eye concentrate for years but I decided to give the eye balm intense a try. {see video here} The eye balm intense smoothes, hydrates, and deeply conditions the under eye area. I have been using it in the morning and night. 

4. Estee Lauder pure color envy sculpting lipstick-{color-dynamic} When I was hosting the fashion show at Bloomingdales last month I had my makeup done at the Estee Lauder counter and I tried this lipstick. I like this particular lipstick because it's creamy and goes on evenly and effortlessly. And the color is really saturated and long lasting. 

5. Oribe root touch up spray- I have been using Color Wow for root touch ups and those grey hairs that seem to keep popping up. But I was recently introduced to Oribe's root touch ups spray and wanted to give it a try. This airbrushing spray works great-it's light and absorbs excess oil from the hair. I like both products a lot so I keep the touch up spray in my makeup bag in my purse and for travel and I use the Color Wow at home.
