I am always striving to be happy with what I have and not always be wanting more. That said, it is fun to drool over new products and other things that I want every so often and decide to either make the splurge or make do without. I have lots of things on that list this month!
1/ Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream in Burgundy is a super dark and vampy purple. I think it will be perfect for fall. It’s totally not something I would normally wear so the fact that I’m gravitating towards it surprises me. I’m holding out hope that in a few months Bite comes out with a lip sampler of their Cashmere Lip Creams because I’m dying to try them!
2/ L’Occitane is known for their amazing scents. They just came out with the Frisson Verbena scent, a sparkling aqueous fragrance that blends lemon and bergamot with fresh verbena and cucumber. I haven’t smelled it yet but I’m waiting on some to review. I’m really excited to give it a whiff and I know that I will end up buying the eau de toilette and the gel for legs and feet. I will keep you posted on my thoughts when it arrives to me!
3/ Nars Duo Eyeshadow in Kauai is the most amazing purple and silver eyeshadow duo. I tried this at Sephora and fell and love but they didn’t have it in stock so I left empty handed. It’s a pricey little duo at $35 because you can practically buy a palette for that much but purple and silver are probably my favorite makeup shades so I have a feeling it would be worth it. I’m trying to convince myself I need this to wear to my 10 year class reunion this summer because my high school’s colors were purple and white! Haha.
4/ I’m a huge fan of their blog, so when A Beautiful Mess came out with their A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book last summer I was on board right away. They just came out with their new book, A Beautiful Mess Happy Handmade Home, and I know I need to pick it up right away. It’s a matter of being at the bookstore and remembering that I wanted this at the same time. We are currently looking for our first home and we don’t have a lot of nice stuff (read: lots of our furniture is hand me downs or leftovers from college) so if we don’t want to hear an echo in our new home, it would be nice to have some DIY projects to work on!
5/ When July hits, usually all the companies are getting ready for back to school and thinking fall already, and I feel like I’m just getting into the swing of summer. When I saw the Lorac Pro Palette 2, I really felt like the colors were ones I would wear most in the colder months. Plum, navy, silver, etc, are all colors that speak to me more in the winter. Now that I’ve seen some reviews on it though, I need it to be mine! I’m going to work on tracking this down at Ulta today!
6/ Estée Lauder just came out with a new product called the Double Wear Brush-on Glow BB Highlighter. Seriously this thing could be totally junk and I would feel like I needed it because I love any products with the words glow, BB, and highlighter in them. I am attracted to these words in makeup as well as anything promising radiance, luminosity, or brightening. These words are music to my ears as a mom and someone in her late 20s with under eye circles. I may not pick this up right away because I have many similar products going at the moment, but I’m thinking I might buy it as a treat for myself to put in my hospital bag after giving birth!
