In case you missed the Clarins Double Serum preview on my blog last week, feel free to take a peak now. This serum has won several beauty awards and is powered by 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules. Oh and while you’re at it….be sure to check out my favorite NYC blogger, Hallie’s #30DaysofBeautiful Challenge.
After weeks of annoying my friends about the products above, I decided it was time to share my love with all of you! Behold, 10 beauty products that are absolutely worth the splurge. Now before I really get into it, I’ll be the first to admit that I have my fair share of drugstore favorites too – nail polish, lipstick + mascara.
From Left to Right:
Clarins Double Serum – aside from winning various beauty awards, this serum is powered by 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules. Results? You will see firmer skin, smaller pores, and visibly even toned skin. Did I mention this serum combines two powerful formulas into one?
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick – if you know me at all, you know that I swear by Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick. It literally is the best of the best (am I allowed to say that?) Aside from flawless, silk-like coverage – this product is perfect regardless of where you’re putting on your makeup (no judgement here).
Oribe Beach Wave Spray – is one of those products that I almost don’t care if it’s actually doing something because it smells THAT GOOD. Lucky for me, it gives my curls the perfect dose of shine and texture.
NARS Yachiyo Brush – this is one of my favorite blush brushes that can be used for color application, blending, contouring and highlighting. The black goat hair of the brush is known for its softness and strength. A must have in your makeup bag.
NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer – we have all faced the struggle of finding the right concealer. NARS definitely hit the jackpot with this blendable, long-wear concealer that gives the perfect amount of luminosity and coverage to brighten up underneath the eye.
Clarisonic Mia – do I really even have to go into why this product is worth the splurge? Just think of it this way: in order for your serums, creams, etc. to actually get into your skin to work – they need to fight through all the dirt and oil to do so. The Clarisonic gets into your skin (without being abrasive) and cleans 6x better than your hands.
butterLondon Nail Foundation – do we still have the “I don’t need a base coat” attitude? butterLondon base coat hides and smooths tiny ridges and imperfections in the nail. It literally is like a foundation make-up for the nail. Added bonus: it actually keeps my nails from chipping. Who knew base coat was actually supposed to work?
Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15 – a lip balm that does exactly what it’s supposed to: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The SPF 15 is an added bonus for sun protection.
Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask – a hydrating treatment that immediately reveals softer, firmer, healthier-looking skin. What I love most is the instant cooling effect to refresh your skin no matter the condition.
