  • Laura Mercier Lip Colour - Shimmer

    I'm a bit of a lipstick junkie, but I am pretty insistent on sticking to natural, barely there shades for most occasions (unless the occassion calls for a red pout...). I had my makeup done on a whim at Laura Mercier for a close friend's wedding. I told the consultant that I was looking for a lip product that would look polished but not overdone. We tried several shades, and when I put on Passion Fruit, I fell in love. I wear it most days. It's really light and never sticky (which is super important...I can't stand get stray hairs stuck on my lipwear...). Best of all, it's shimmer is subtle enough to give it a lipgloss look while still feeling slightly more sophisticated. I'm almost down to the end of the tube and will definitely be restocking!

  • Nars Lip Lacquer

    Nars Lip Lacquer

    Chelsea Girl is the Perfect Shade

    I'm not usually a fan of heavy lip lacquers but I'm willing to make an exception for this exceptional shade. Like some of their other hit products (Orgasm blush, Laguna Bronzer) Nars Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Girls flatters all my friends (and we all have wildly different coloring). I have very pink lips so this product is thick enough to cancel out what can sometimes overly heighten lip colors...I'm left with the perfect day-to-night neutral. A good sign...it's always out of stock when I go to purchase it!

  • Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

    My skin tone is a bit uneven from acne scarring and sun exposure, so I decided to try clinique's even better skin tone corrector. It is my first time using a product that even skin tone so I don't have a point of comparison, but so far I am happy with the results. My skin can be oily so I always worry about putting extra product on it, but their formula couldn't be lighter. I use it sporadically so I haven't seen results as rapidly as I might if I was using it every night, but I can definitely see a difference in some of the more drastic spots since I began using it. It will take awhile before I can give it my 100% blessing but luckily the product will last a long time (it only takes a pump or so to cover my problem areas) so I have awhile to give it a go. I think it was worth the price. I trust Clinique to make products that are sensitive on the skin and this has been no exception.

  • Laura Mercier Brow Definer

    Laura Mercier Brow Definer

    Lifetime Convert

    I have medium thick, dark eyebrows, but they don't always look as full as I would like. I've tried a million products...I started with drugstore standbys like covergirl pencils and quickly graduated to the Chanel eyebrow pencil. I was really satisfied with the Chanel product...until I met the Laura Mercier Brow Definer. I was in Sephora with a trusted friend (who, it must be said, has always had impeccable eyebrows) when she picked up a refill of her Mercier Definer. Always one to try something new, I decided to give it a spin too. Wow. I've been using it for a year now and have received so many compliments on my brows. I never leave home without putting it on (even if I forgo mascara and coverup). The container looks really small, and some people might be turned off by the price, but it lasts for so long that it's worth spending a little extra. I promose.

  • Moroccanoil Treatment

    I have combination hair (it can range from super frizzy to oily, and is that in between curly/straight texture that never seems to look good without serious effort). I've used about a million leave in treatments over the years. After sampling my friends in the desert climate of Israel, I was sold. My hair looked silky despite the odd climate. Some people may balk at the price, but the bottle last forever and unlike many fad products, it actually works. It seems counterintuitive that an oil would actually help oily hair like mine, but I'm not going to question it. Plus, it smells great. My sister-in-law is a recent convert, too. This has quickly become an after-every-shower staple for me.

  • Nars Multiple Orgasm Set II

    I'm pretty sure this is the universally flattering shade. My friends and I always dive into each others' makeup bags and I have yet to meet someone who doesn't look radiant and natural in the Nars Orgasm collection. So many products are over-hyped because of mass-marketing, but this is one that I can't live without. I've tried blushes ranging from Bobby Brown, Clinique and Mac to drugstore brands and can honestly say that I have settled upon my ultimate blush. I've only tried the lip gloss version once or twice, but I'm thinking it's my next beauty purchase.

  • Nars Bronzing Powder

    I've tried a million bronzers (having a tan is a must when you live in a beach town and I don't like tanning too often)...Nar (especially in Laguna) is the perfect brozer. Unlike so many that seem streaky and orange, this product blends in naturally and has a relatively matte finish. It never screams, "I'm wearing bronzer," and always saves me from looking like a vampire in the winter.
