I hope it’s warmer by you than it is by me! It’s a rather chilly day–more winter than fall–over here in California. The sun is just barely peeking through the clouds. I’m one of those people who much prefers sun over clouds, because cloudy, grays feel so gloomy and make me feel less productive!
I think I was sixteen or seventeen when I blew a ton of allowance on Benefit Cosmetics, but I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup in high school, so I didn’t get much opportunity to wear it! My best friend was REALLY into makeup, so I think I was trying to find more common ground with her at the time.
It’s amazing how many new products roll out each week–how any one person could actually keep up with them all seems like an impossible feat to me! Here are five items that caught my attention this week:
Sedu Icon Prive Dryer ($700.00) might be one of the most expensive hair tools I’ve ever come across. That’s not a typo, you know! I’d love to see this in action.
Hourglass Powder Brush No. 1 ($65.00) just made me aware that Hourglass made brushes. What? Where have I been? Now, I’m generally a big fan of Hourglass’ products, so I might just have to venture to Sephora to see if these are on display.
Illamaqua Shimmer Blush ($24.00) is new for fall, and I’m eager to see how it performs against their matte blushes. I love that Illamasqua has a lot of matte finishes, but it’s nice to mix it up.
Jo Malone Fragrance Combining Cologne Collection ($95.00) is something I’d definitely like to try — and I love the idea of small-sized scents, because I know it takes me forever to get through a bottle. And I really mean forever, because I’ve never finished a perfume.
