The weather has been unseasonably balmy—comparatively speaking—these past few days, so I rewarded myself with a trip to Sephora, to stock up on old favorites and give a new item or two a try. Like this Kosas tinted lip balm with hydrating hyaluronic acid. It’s the ideal size for your purse, and this hue—called Pulse—imparts a nice wash of color that’s subtle but flattering.
Usually, I employ a trip to Sephora as an excuse to try a mascara that’s new to me, but this time I went with an old favorite: Better than Sex, from Too Faced. And I’m glad I did because I forgot how crazily volumizing it is. Not really better than sex, or even close, but still, about as good as mascara gets.
This Drunk Elephant hydration serum is a key component of my morning skincare cocktail: it’s super-light and absorbs quickly, but seriously keeps skin looking plump and moist.
The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid is the newest addition to my skincare regimen—which is kind of a headline, as I almost never add new products. It has a kind of viscous texture and I only use one (big) drop, and my skin has never been softer.
I had a small crisis recently when I realized I was out of my Milk Bronzer, which I love because it’s one of the only bronzers I’ve ever found that is matte and has no shimmer. It goes on lighter than it looks, but dark enough for a serious warm glow.
