I’m hoping to spend a decent amount of time in Sag Harbor this summer, and I dislike having to trek back and forth from Brooklyn with all my beauty products, so I recently purchased dupes of all my favorite products, like for instance this lip and cheek color that’s nicely light and sheer—ideal for warmer weather.
The fact that that I owned this Shiseido eyeliner had completely slipped my mind, but I found it when I was going through an old cosmetics bag the other day. It’s a nice rich brown (though it comes in several other hues too) and really stays put. I had pretty much given up on eyeliner—which fades quickly on my oily skin—but now that I’ve re-found this one, I’m back on board.
This Vitamin C serum appeals because it’s much cheaper than the stuff I was using before, and appears to do just as good a job. It’s nicely lightweight and absorbs quickly too.
So many of you have raved about Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen that I decided I needed to give it a try, and I have to say that so far I like it: it absorbs fast and nicely matte-ifies my shiny skin.
True, I just wrote about this mascara the other day, so I’ll keep it brief and just say that I put it on before a party Saturday night and my boyfriend thought—so great are this product’s lengthening powers—that I had false lashes on.
I don’t apply bronzer like you’re supposed to: strategically to the cheeks, nose, temples, and chin—in short, all the spots the sun naturally shines. I know I’d screw that up badly. So instead, I apply this Milk bronzer all over my face, which I can get away with because the color here is nicely subtle.
This hyaluronic acid formulation by The Ordinary made it into my rotation because it costs half as much less than this product from Drunk Elephant I used to use that does essentially the same thing. As with the above Vitamin C serum, I’m pretty certain my skin can’t tell the difference.
This Marula face oil has been part of my morning skincare regimen for ages now, and—like all my favorite skincare products—it sinks in quickly and makes my skin feel really hydrated.
I’m still a fan of the Charlotte Tilbury makeup setting spray I wrote about not long ago, but I’ve heard great things about this Urban Decay product, and decided to give it a shot for out on Long Island. I’ll report back on its effectiveness.
