What I Am Loving…Right Now

2014 September 29


Four fall favorites I am loving right now:

Vanille perfume at Anthropologie. This little gem is nowhere to be found online but if you pop into your local store, they have big and small, pocket-size bottles of this addictive, smoky vanilla scent. I picked one up for a girlfriend a few weeks ago and quickly ran back to get my own.

Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Day Oil. This find really deserves a post of its own. It is simply amazing. I bought it as part of a plan to “clean up” my skincare routine a little and the results have been incredible. It takes some getting used to because it is meant to replace your daily moisturizer and you only need 2-3 drops for your entire face but it leaves it feeling supple, soft and my pores have seen a significant change in size and scariness. Must-have for anyone with combination or normal/combination skin.

Beautycounter peppermint lip balm. I picked this up ages ago at the goop pop-up shop in LA (remember that?) and finally started to dip into it last week. It’s a lovely, light lip balm that has a peppermint scent that is reminiscent of the Blistex I grew up on…but without all the nasty additives. It has become a fast favorite in my makeup bag.

Finally, it was time to find a punchier color for my pout this season. I have been loving NARS Damage for a sheer, slightly stained look but wanted something a little bolder for fall and opted for Afghan Red. This is a rich, wine red that has a slightly fuchsia finish on me that turns up the volume just the right amount. Without screaming.

Loving anything new in your beauty cabinet these days? Share in the comments, would love to hear about it!

    Thanks for the recommendations! I will definitely be stopping by Anthropologie for the perfume and I know exactly where I can get that Day Oil!

    These oils are all the rage these days! I’d love to one day try them, but I’m afraid to break out… how long have you been using it? I saw a few videos on youtube about a montreal brand vain pursuits – it’s in your home town right? What do you think of their products.. if you’ve tried them? Thanks so much!

      Hi Elle – I’ve been using this Dr. Hauschka one for about three weeks now and am still loving it, not a break out to be seen. That said, it’s definitely about personal trial and error. But it’s a myth that people with oily/break out prone skin should avoid oils, they can actually work wonders. I don’t know Vain Pursuits, will have to look them up. Thanks for the tip!

        I completely agree. My friends have recommended me many products that worked for them but they ended up so badly on me 🙁 I signed up for Vain Pursuits yesterday! Super excited to get my first shipment!

    I think that I need to be more bold with my lip color choices. I usually go for a my-lips-but-better color. 🙂 As for my new beauty favorite… I’ve been loving BECCA The One Perfecting Brush since I got it almost a month ago! Some people seem to not like it (from some online reviews), but I really love it. It cuts down on the time it takes for me to put on make-up in the mornings before work!

      Ooh, nice. Will check it out – thanks for sharing! And yes, try one bold color for fall. Even if you save it for special occasions, it’s worth it 😉
