Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder
Color: Ebony 08
Smooth cocoa brown bronzer with subtle gold shimmer. I was not checking for Guerlain at all. Honestly, the price point scares the hell out of me. I literally sprint pass it during trips to Sephora and put on my blinders. The moisturizing powder is so smooth, I couldn’t pass it up and the color was very unique. Trust me, I’ve swatched bronzer and brown blushes high and low and nothing compares.
Illamasqua Gleam Cream
This sheer champagne gold highlighting/ illuminating cream is super silky (almost like glycerin) but it stays in place very well, but that glide makes the application a breeze. I know the color looks intimidating but once applied its wearable for all skintones…you know because Illamasque is just dope like that. It’s currently sold out on Sephora.com but in most stores (limited edition and this is only the second time Illamasqua’s brought it back). You also might want to try ordering it directly from Illamasqua directly but shipping from the UK takes a while.
Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss
I’ve been eyeing this true taupe gloss for months but they recently changed the packaging from a soft squeezable tube to a tube with a brush wand. *shrug* Really it’s not a huge deal, I’ll most likely just pull the stopper out when it gets low. These lipglosses are opaque so if you love a gloss that wears like a lipstick, grab these babies!
Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara
I call this mascara “my ol’ lady”. I can’t live without it! It’s the perfect all-in-one that adds volume, length, defines, and lifts my lashes. The brush is perfect; it’s plastic, not too long, not obnoxiously chunky, and the bristles aren’t sparse and spread far apart… wait…did I mention is has a comb on 1 row? I just love it! I keep buying it.
Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick
Color: Crush 23
I’ve been looking for deep raspberry pink for the season and I knew I didn’t want to break the bank but still wanted the quality…duhh Sephora Collection. They give the best of both worlds and have a rally impressive color collection with multiple finishes.
