If you're a regular PurseBlog reader, you've probably picked up on the fact that I'm a product junkie of the highest order. (VIB Rouge, even.) You guys are kind enough to occasionally indulge me in my desire to talk about the kinds of face spackle and hair goop I've been using lately, and today, I'd like to do just that. Below, check out what I've been using lately that I think is really neat and effective; maybe you'll like it to.
Also, please let me know what kind of stuff you're loving right now. Gotta get some new stuff for June, after all.
Bumble and bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish Spray
$31 via Sephora
My hair is naturally curly, but it's also fine thin, and I'll never give up on my native-southerner dreams of having huge hair at all times. This finishing spray gives my hair the texture and hold I crave throughout the life of a blowout, and it's not as sticky or stinky as similar sprays tend to be.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black Perfume
$80 via Sephora
I've worn this perfume on and off for years, but for the past several months I've been caught up in my love for Byredo's Rose of No Man's Land. Last weekend, I saw the bottle on my vanity and spritzed a little on, and I couldn't stop sniffing myself. It's so, so good--dark and sexy and not at all sweet. The Olsen Twins always provide.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum
$36 via Sephora
My skin has been behaving the best it has been in years lately, and I think that's due to a combination of this serum and the Dr. Jart BB cream I mentioned last month. This lightweight gel packs a big moisture punch without being at all greasy-feeling. When it was colder, I layered it under a heavy moisturizer. Lately, on warm days, I put it directly under my BB cream and my skin feels great.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Susperia
$20 via Sephora
I normally go for a super vampy red or a deep plum, but I felt like I need a purple that was a little bit less goth in my rotation. This is a gorgeous summer purple, and the formulation means it really stays put.
Sephora Lotus Moisturizing and Soothing Eye Mask
$5 via Sephora
I got this in a mask-swap with my best friend, who swears by them and uses them several times a week. Turns out she's right--they're great for tired, dry or irritated eye areas, and they also come in a bunch of other formulations in case your situation needs something a little different.
