The tea on some hot new products!

Hi all! Here to share my thoughts on some hyped up, new, makeup releases. We have the Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask which is huge in the skincare/blogger community since blogger Marianna Hewitt created it. Then we have the Milk makeup serum stick, a Morphe bronzer and some new influencer releases.  I’ve had pretty good luck with all of these products so here. we. GO!!

IMG_2175

Nars Fort de France highlighting powder. I didn’t need more highlighter… I never do but I made an exception because this one is so smooth and gorgeous on the skin! Its more subtle, lit from within and far from being in your face and blinding. I’m over intense highlight! This doesn’t emphasize texture and it melts into your skin with a setting spray.  Nars makes the smoothest highlighters in the game and this one is awesome. I will say you really benefit by using setting spray to get rid of the powder look.  Would I buy again? Absolutely!

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum.  I love a vitamin c serum ever since I first tried Drunk Elephant C- Firma. Is this as good as Drunk Elephant? No but it does brighten and help retexture skin.  Its not as potent or fast working as Drunk Elephant but its way cheaper! If your skin doesn’t dramatically need brightening or overall help I would say try this!  I really like it and it reminds me of Drunk Elephant just not as fast acting or strong.  Its still a good serum for brightening and smoothing skin and I like it. Would I buy this again? Yes $15 for a good sized mini is an awesome price.

Natasha Denona chrome lid pot. I love this for a subtle eye shimmer/ easy eye look.  Its so easy and you can use your finger to apply it.  I haven’t used this for an intense all glitter eye so I don’t think its the product for that but its great for subtle shimmer and color to the lid. Would I buy again? Yes, I want the brown/lavender iridescent flip one!

Flower Beauty Concealer. This is a good concealer but the color is off. The range isn’t great. This is light medium and its a bit too yellow/green for my skin!  I’m pretty yellow too.  I love the coverage this offers and how easy it is to blend.  It also wears for a while on the skin. I said I like this better then Shape Tape and I used Shape Tape the other day since its more my color and guys…. I just don’t think you can beat Shape Tape! But this is only a fraction of the price at $9 and I think its one of the better high coverage concealers at the drugstore! Would I buy again? Yes but I need more shades because this one is obviously not a match when I wear it.

Morphe Brontour I am SHOOK by this bronzer.  This is the most gorgeous, luminous bronzer I’ve tried in a while!  I love that I have a matte/contour option in this to add more definition to my cheek bones.  Definitely an awesome concept by Morphe and great execution because this is such a good bronzer.  This color isn’t too orange or muddy looking, I got the shade ‘Celebutante’ and its SOOOO easy to blend into the skin.  Its pigmented so use lightly but definitely worth picking up! Would I buy again? HELL YES!

Bliss Marshmallow Mask. I LOVE the texture of this mask. What does it do? I’m not entirely sure but my skin does feel nicer and smoother after washing this off.  Its also pretty soothing….ok read the description, its smoothing and radiant. Radiant is a good description! I agree! Would I buy this again? oh yes!

IMG_2161

Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask!  I understand the hype, guys I do and I understand every awesome review I’ve read on Instagram! ( I have yet to read a bad one. )  This mask is very hydrating and I see why it would be so good on a plane.  (I plan to try it on my plane ride home in 2 weeks!) It left my skin noticeably plumper and glowing..kinda like a huge glass of water for your face.  It has peppermint extract so I felt it tingling on my skin a little bit.  I’m pretty sensitive so it left me a little red but it did go away soon after. Would I buy this again? yes!

Essence Pure Nude highlighter. Needing a cheaper, everyday subtle glow? Look no further because this is for you. I got this because its supposed to be a dupe for the Hourglass ambient lighting powder and it is! I use this more as a setting powder all over my face when I feel like using one and it sets my concealer with a gorgeous, luminous sheen.  You can also use this for a subtle highlighter and its equally as pretty.  It nails the glow from within look.  I totally recommend this as an Hourglass ambient lighting powder dupe or as a subtle highlight. Would I buy again? Yes!

Bobbi Brown lipstick in Sazan Nude. This is a collab with blogger and YouTuber Sazan Hendrix. I love her instagram and her YouTuber videos so I knew I had to grab this after seeing its sheer, nude coloring. This is one of the best lipsticks I’ve ever used.  It’s so hydrating, creamy and comfy to wear. I never really went for Bobbi Brown in the past because I considered it a more mature brand and I’m wrong. I have very dry, chapped lips and this lipstick wore so nicely and kept my lips moisturized. I would go as far to say thats its one of the best lipsticks I’ve ever used.  I love the color, its like your lips but better and I will definitely be adding more to my collection. Would I buy again? 100% YES!

Dr. Jart Tiger grass camo drops. If you like the tiger grass cream, you will love this.  Meet tiger grass cream’s lighter, thinner sister! hahah. I would describe this as a color correcting treatment with a serum texture.  You need about three drops and it’ll even out redness into your skin color. I go in with 2 more if my cheeks are really red from sleeping. Since this is a much thinner texture it also doesn’t give the whitecast that the cream has. I need very minimal concealer when I use this and thats it.  Makes me a very happy girl! I really love this product and I reach for it daily. It also layers really well with an oil, moisturizer and sunscreen — no pilling experienced! Would I buy again? OH yes, I expect a repurchase.

IMG_2158

Bliss Honey Lavender Moisturizing mask. This mask gives me Farmacy honey potion masks vibes.  Its similar in color but lighter in texture, non sticky and doesn’t warm on the skin. It does still offers the same amount of hydration.  This has a subtle lavender smell to it which I love.  Its not a Farmacy dupe but its a good hydration mask and I enjoy it. I’ve been needing a good hydration mask and this checked that box. Would I buy again? Yes!

Milk Makeup watermelon serum.  I wasn’t going to buy this at first because it sounded gimmicky but I saw good reviews on sephora.com as well as Instagram so here we are.  I really like using this! I use this in the morning as a primer for my skin and makeup.  My skin is pretty sensitive and it has never done well with a morning and night serum but this one is totally ok so far.  It wears really well under my oil, moisturizer and sunscreen — no pilling experienced.  I do agree with its hydrating and brightening claims!  This gives my skin life in the morning and it has diminished an acne scar I had on my forehead and my skin overall just looks brighter.  I’ve been using for a week and I do notice a difference.  I am using the Ole Henrikson Truth serum but not as consistently so I do believe that this is helping. Besides that I love the handiness of  Milk Makeup’s stick products. Would I buy again? Yes!

Essence Make me Glow Liquid bronzer. This is not a bronzer, its far too light and shiny even if your pale and love glow. This is a champagne, gold liquid highlighter! Its one of the easiest products to blend out and the glow it gives is gorgeous. I think this is one of the easiest liquid highlighters to blend out.  I have the Charlotte Tilbury beauty wand and sometimes I have a hard time blending that out and the product dries in the shape of the sponge applicator on my cheek within seconds.  I never experience that with this; its great, cheap and needs to be talked about more! Would I buy this again? Yes!

Weekend of Outfits

I love showing my personal style I just am rarely wearing something other then lulus and a sweatshirt. I have to take advantage of the moments when I’m dressed up!  My best friend turned 21 this weekend so we stayed at a hotel in Faneuil Hall and bar hopped. Super fun girls weekend and I love getting a chance to dress up and take pictures. I’m lowkey a grandma but I’ll get up to put on heels and take a picture.

IMG_5491

Top – similar Forever 21 // Topshop Jeans // Dolce Vita shoes.

The shoes are super girly so the jeans rough it up…though not looking so flattering in the crotch area.  Mules are also my favorite shoes to wear. I always get blisters so I love a free heel sitch. I want these ones so bad! Also peep my Sephora bag…soaking up the last weekend of the sale. What I got will be up soon!

Dress is Forever 21, Shoes are Kendall and Kylie

This dress is really stepping out of my comfort zone! It’s white with hearts so girly and way more feminine then what I go for. I love it with the pointed toe boots since it edges it up! Also have 4 layers of self tan on since it’s white and New England decides to snows in April.

These shoes — soo hard to walk on the cobble stone!

Glossier Lidstars!

IMG_5348

I’ve mentioned before my love/hate relationship with Glossier.  I have yet to find a product from them that I really like; their concealer broke me out pretty badly and boy brow is just okay to me!  But they did refund me for the concealer after leaving a review on the website…they wrote me a really nice email and I truly applaud their customer service.   They also have a store opening in LA and I’m lying if I said I wasn’t a hint excited!  Sooooo they’re doing something right.

Have we seen enough of Lidstars on social media?! Probably? But, in my search to find a Glossier product I truly love — they aren’t bad and here’s my take!

I got the shades fawn – the purple, grey and herb- the green color.

Claims: to be a creaseless, wash of color that won’t move or fade and will last 12 hours!

Thats a big promise.

Fawn:

I really like this color. It’s a pretty light, smokey, taupe color.  I have very oily eye lids and without a primer my shadow is gone in an hour. I was skeptical about the no primer claim.  I got around 5 hours without a primer, just Lidstar applied to the lid before I noticed the color fading.

These aren’t very bright or pigmented so I applied more to compensate for that. After 5 hours the color faded but was still visible.  They didn’t smudge or crease! I’m happy with a 5 hour wear. I only wear these out so I won’t need 12 hours of wear.

IMG_5353

Herb:

I absolutely love these green color with brown eyes. I feel like eye shadow is boring for brown eyes and this is fun!

Herb oh herb. This guy is patchy. When I applied one layer it was fine but very subtle in color and almost hard to notice that its even green. Once I started to apply more the first layer got patchy and some of the color got removed with the applicator.   Very hard to work with. I put some bronzer in the crease but it was still patchy.

I tried this with a brush and that does help with the patchiness!  The green color just isn’t as intense as I’d like. You can make this work but you have to work with it.

I found this one to wear longer then fawn without fading but its a patchy mess so what you gain you also give up something in return. This one didn’t smudge or fade.

If you want a pigmented, green shimmer shadow get this one.

Overall, I would say these are like the Stila magnificent metals but for day!  They are definitely a wash of color so don’t expect a glittery eye look. I do like that they’re pretty easy to apply/ use.  Except for Herb as he’s more high maintenance. 😉

I’m happy I got these because its a fun eye look without looking over done.  I think I’ll reach for fawn more just because its easier to use.  Fawn is more day appropriate of the two colors versus herb which is darker and smokier.

Glossier also has 4 other colors in more pinky tones. I don’t like pink shadow so these colors were an easy pick and I’d still pick herb even though its patchy.

Would I buy again? Yes. Rating out of 10? 7.5.

2 second bronzed, dewy makeup hack!

Want to hear my trick to bronzed, dewy makeup that lets me sleep in extra and still have time have time to get coffee before class? Ohhh yaaaaaaaaa

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

1. First start of with the moisturizer or sunscreen! Always use SPF, even in winter. Pro tip: go with something tinted to skip foundation to shave off some time in your routine.

2. Here it is: 2 pumps Nars liquid laguna and 1 pump of a liquid highlighter. I love this Kevyn Aucoin one or the Becca one.  (Here’s a cheaper version from Makeup Revolution. I don’t have a cheaper bronzer but I can say that bronzer is 100000% worth it.)

3. Blend that all over your face with your fingers! And no, it’s not for the faint of heart or those that like a matte finish. You can mix this into your moisturizer or a tinted sunscreen for a subtler bronze/ glow.

What matters is the liquid bronzer + the highlighter mixed together all over your face because then you don’t have to use bronzer or highlighter and it shaves off a lot of time.

4. After that, I just put some concealer under my eyes, I do my brows, mascara and then I’m DONE.  Ok I add a lip too. Hahah.

Anyways, it’s fast and it fakes a bronze glow which I desperately need because New England has decided it still wants to snow so the only tan/glow I will have on my body will be fake. 🙂

I promise it doesn’t look as crazy as it sounds! You only use a little bit so it adds a really pretty bronze, glow without making you look Tin man ish. Hahah. It’s also a really great option if you don’t self tan your face!

Wishing you the happiest of Mondays if there was ever such a thing!

what to buy at the Sephora Sale!

IMG_1670

The Sephora VIB sale is just around the corner! Woot woot! If you’re rouge or your friend is, you can shop the sale 15% off this weekend…if you’re with them. Or next weekend Friday – Sunday 15% for Rouge, VIB and 10% off for Beauty Insider.  I love Sephora without a sale so when they have a sale you gotta go ham.  I’ve been curating my list for the past month.  Products like Drunk Elephant, Nars, Tom Ford, and lots of fragrance rarely if ever goes on sale. You HAVE to stock up!

BASICS

Any product you use in your daily routine…here’s a few examples.

  • Any concealers or foundation you use daily.
  • setting powder or spray. love the Laura Mercier setting powder. snag that on sale because its pricey.
  • Skincare you use daily whether its a cleanser, toner, moisturizer or serum.
  • Mascara!
  • Haircare.
  • Fragrance

NEED IDEAS? Here’s my picks per category.

Makeup //

Bronzer. Benefit Hoola is the best bronzer out there and it works on many skin tones plus, you can contour with it. The Milk makeup bronzer is a great cream bronzer. Nars liquid laguna is my absolute favorite. Kevyn Aucoin contour powder is awesome for coutour.

Highlighter. I will say Becca because they’re just that good. But disclaimer they are fragile af so if you travel and / or drop things a lot this is risky. Another good option is the ABH Amrezy highlighter — its gorgeous and feels sturdier.

Nars concealer! Their soft matte is my jam rn but I used to be obsessed with the creamy radiant which is equally as good.

MASCARA! I plan on getting one of their sets that allows you to try mini mascaras then redeem it for a full size one.  As for mascara, I love the Lancome Monsieur Big.

Lipsticks: Fenty gloss forsure. Fresh tinted balms are great for day to day or splurging on a new everyday lipstick. I like Dior, Nars or Guerlain.

I will say I’m not a foundation or eyeshadow palette person persay so lacking in those categories… BUT

Tarte makes some great everyday shadow palettes. The ABH Soft Glam is calling my bare lids as we speak.

I don’t like foundation but the Sephora Collection skin tint is awesome. It’s very light weight coverage.

Also the It Cosmetics CC cream is the bomb. I like the radiant one. The coverage is medium +, and it has SPF but it feels light.

Skincare //

Again, anything DE.

I love the Farmacy Honey potion hydrating face mask as well as the Herbivore Blue Tansy mask. Its a great alternative if DE baby facial is too strong for your skin. (like mine!)

This Laneige overnight lip mask is amazing. I use it every night.

I love Clinique Take the day off balm to remove makeup.

Beauty Water is an awesome micellar water, toner, second cleanse. The Fresh Rose toner also looks awesome.

Moisturizer wise I love the Tatcha water cream. DE Lala retro feels amazing.  And the Herbivore Pink cloud moisturizer is catching my eye.

Haircare //

Mostly what I use isn’t at Sephora but…

Olaplex freakin 3 is amazing. You can find it online for a tad cheaper but people have gotten fakes before.

Ouai Leave in conditioner is great. So is the frizz sheets for day 3 hair.

Drybar has some good sprays. My favorite is the Triple Sec Texture spray.

Living Proof dry volume blast is great for volume at the root.

LUXURY

I’m a broken record. Anything Drunk Elephant. I love their TLC Framboos and C-Firma serums. The marula oil melts into the skin. The sunscreen is awesome. Lala Retro + Protini feel amazing… point is you can’t go wrong with this brand, its expensive and it never goes on sale so stock up! There is a limit to 3 DE items per sku. My mom is bringing my dad with her to do another transaction because she loves DE that much.

Brands like Tom Ford, Dior, Natasha Denona, Pat McGrath — all the stuff that never goes on sale.

Tom Ford the bronzer is meh but if you want it in your collection now is a good time. If you just want a good bronzer I say go with Hoola.

Dior has good lips and gorgeous highlighters and bronzers.

Natasha Denona, quite honestly expensive shadows I haven’t tried but I like the chrome lid toppers!

Pat McGrath ahh the holy grail. I never wear eye shadow but I NEED one of her palettes….sublime if were getting specific. 😉

Expensive serums and oils if I haven’t mentioned one you like or want to try.

Fragrance!  I love Flower Bomb and Nest Black Tulip 

Tools! Whether it be a new hair dryer, an eye lash curler, a face tool or a beauty blender.

The Bronzer Edit

I loveeeee me some bronzer!! I’m a firm believer in everyone looks better with a tan and since I go to school in New England I know how important bronzer truly is.  I didn’t really use bronzer when I lived in LA because I was always tan enough… Actually I lived for Benefit’s One hot minute bronzer in high school, it was a shimmer loose powder and I went ham with it ALL over my face.  It gave me J.Lo skin vibes or so I thought so obvi I went with it hahah. Benefit doesn’t even make that bronzer anymore.  Everybody cringes when they look back at their high school makeup and I always played it pretty conservative; mascara and blush so I’m not too mad about it.  I never had a crazy eyeliner phase either but I drowned myself in shimmery bronzer. 😂

Today I usually stick with matte bronzers, how times have changed, HA! but I love a shimmery bronzer for a dust of allover shimmer.  When done correctly shimmer can look more skin like but its harder to find. I like a bronzer with a sheen to avoid that intensely shimmer look.

IMG_1369

 

Here’s the bronzers I have that stuck out to me! Its a lot and I still have some more but heres what made the cut. I will say if you read my blog then you’ll know my favorites.

My favorites are:

Chanel Tan De Soleil. I am always on the look out for a bronzer dupe for this and I have yet to find anything similar. ( I think theres one on amazon prime from a random brand but it is continually sold out.) This one is a cream bronzer, not cream to powder and I just LOVE how it wears on the skin. It blends so nicely and its super flattering for an allover tan. I can’t stress enough how much I love this bronzer.

Benefit Hoola. I think this is the best matte, everyday bronzer that everyone should own. You can contour or bronze the face with it.  It pulls more orange so I think it would work best with light – medium skin tones. I have never found this to look muddy or orange on my skin.  Its a great formula and its just so easy to use. Def a staple in my collection and I use it often.  I even hit pan on it!

Physicians Formula Butter bronzer. I love this drugstore bronzer.  I think its the best at the drugstore and very comparable to Hoola. It has a buttery finish, it smells like a tropical vacay and it just wears really nicely on the skin. It has a hint of sheen to it.

Milk Makeup Bronzer. This is a great cream bronzer and probably the closest I’ve found to the Chanel one though they apply differently. Theres a difference between a cream bronzer and a cream contour. This is cream bronzer and I would say that you can use this to contour if you’d like but its a more warm tone bronzer so if you like cool tone contour than this will be a bronzer for you.  I just love how easily this warms up the face and how easy it is to blend.

Too Faced Sweetie pie bronzer.  I don’t use this as bronzer but as a blush. I don’t like blush but I like how this makes my cheeks look flushed. It has some sheen to it so it wears really nicely. I use this guy everyday and I haven’t found something like it.

NARS liquid laguna. This is a holy grail product for me. I use it to darken tinted moisturizers if I’m tan. I use it as a primer when I’m self tanned and I use it as bronzer. Its such a versatile product and it blends out SO well and effortlessly.  Big fan of this bronzer.

IMG_1409

Tom Ford Bronzer in Terra. Lets be real I got this because its Tom Ford. I don’t think its very pigmented so I always layer it with cream contour or the Milk cream bronzer stick. I use it a lot and it looks nicely layered with cream products. I do love it as an eyeshadow.

Milani Baked Bronzer. Not sure if because this is baked or but I don’t get much pigment from this. I think maybe I need to scrape off the first layer?  Patrick Ta recommended it and I love everything he does so I got it. Do I use it, no but it can be a decent shimmery bronzer from the drugstore that won’t look too overboard.

Makeup Revolution baked bronzer. This pulls very red and very shimmery. It could certainly wear as a highlighter for darker skin tones.  I got this to use in place of a blush and its just so red and pigmented.  I wouldn’t recommend this.

IMG_1411

Essence Matte bronzer. This product pulls more orange but I’m tan enough so it looks fine.  I like this bronzer for warming up my face.  It has a tropical scent with minimal fallout and for only $5 I think this is one of the better drugstore options out there. I just want to warn that it does pull more orange and compared to the other bronzers in the picture, it looks orangey in color.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold bronzer. This is very shimmery.  I use it in place of blush or very lightly dusted of my face and I love the outcome.  Its summer skin vibes forsure. Is this going to be your main, go-to bronzer probably not but if you like bronzers you’ll like this. I will say make sure your face is dry when you apply this because it can get patchy if it attaches to foundation or wet concealer.

Lisa Frank Bronzer. I got this in an Ipsy and I was shook with how good this bronzer is. The formula reminds me of Hoola in that its matte, pigmented and smooth.  But the color is darker then Hoola and I think this would make a great contour shade.   It’s $6 which is insane for how good it is but very sold out too.

If you’re new to bronzer I vote Hoola or Butter Bronzer.

If you’re a bronzer fanatic like me get the Nars liquid laguna. Its sooo underrated and so so good.

Any bronzers you love that aren’t here? Lemme know I love discovering new stuff to try!

New York Beauty Crawl

I was in New York last week and whenever I’m in a new city I love too look and see what beauty and skincare stores they have! It’s just the beauty lover in me but New York is seriously a great option for beauty products.  Here’s what made the cut:

Ricky’s NYC.  

Ricky’s has multiple locations all over New York.  They’re a beauty supply store but they care brands like Bioderma, Embryolisse, Cosrx, Oribe, Violet Voss, NYX Morphe and The Ordinary. ( which for the record I am no longer a fan of but I can attest to the fact that their stuff is hard to find in store!) They also have a huge section of hair toners, dyes and coloring supplies!  I make sure to get some Bioderma every time I’m in New York because Ricky’s is the only store I’ve ever been too that has it!

IMG_0819

They have all the different Bioderma lines.

IMG_0818

Embryolisse and Cosrx. Both hard to find in stores!

IMG_0817

Olaplex.  if you need a hair mask this is a God send. My #1 recommendation and its also harder to find in store or even online. (beware of fakes!)

Glossier. 123 Lafayette Street. Lafayette and Canal for your cab driver 😉

IMG_1035

This mirror is right near the elevator.

If you like beauty you know Glossier so I had to include this because their only show room is in New York! Its located in little Italy and its a teeny tiny penthouse that is always jam packed. For example you have to wait in line to get in the elevator to get up to the showroom.  I’m still deciding if I like Glossier — not sure if its that good or if its really just over hyped and very well marketed. I think the showroom is a one time visit and done.  It’s all millennial pink;  cute, VERY aesthetically pleasing and even better for pictures…but super hyped up.  It’s tiny and very crowded so I don’t see a need to ever go back.

They have all their products out to sample and you fill out a note card of what you want, pay and then wait for them to call your name with your bag of products.  I got lidstars and a review of that will be up soon!

I almost got the Glossier You solid perfume but I didn’t and I’m not too upset.   Peep my dunks I can’t put down!

IMG_1005

Another jam packed sample area. Hint its always jam packed.

Sample Sales

I went to the Space NK sample sale while in New York and it was an awesome sale with killer prices. Heres the post I wrote on that.  I totally recommend checking for sample sales while you’re there.

IMG_0981

The next Space NK sale won’t be for a while but heres what I got. Prices were around 70% + off. I paid $20 for a normal $100 Eve Lom moisturizer.

Duane Reade 

Duane Reade is basically a CVS with a kicked up beauty section.  They have them on just about every corner and I wish they would branch out past New York! I live for their Avene section. They make the best skincare for dry, sensitive skin hands down.  I always pick of the Skin Recovery Cream in the rich version. I haven’t found it in any stores besides Duane Reade so its a must.

They also have the Balm cosmetics and I didn’t end up getting some but I want to try their bronzers and highlighters!

HONORABLE MENTIONS.

Sephora

I like Sephora in New York because they’re massive!  For instance everyone I went to had  a Natasha Denona section and I haven’t seen that in a while. I was able to find some stuff I haven’t seen in many stores.

Ulta

Sure they’re everywhere but I like the Ulta on 86th because it has a huge Mac section and it carries all the Colourpop stuff!

C.O Bigelow Apothecaries 

Sort of like a kicked up pharmacy with a bunch of different skincare and beauty products. I didn’t go here but its on my list for next time and I’ve heard good things.

oo35mm 

Looking at the location and I’m so mad I didn’t go here because it’s down the street from Glossier! Ugh and its all Asian beauty which is my weakness. I got enough while was in NY so its probably for the better but def want to check this out! I also head back in a month. 😉

Credo Beauty

They carry high end, all natural beauty products. I want to check this store out and they also have locations in NY, Boston and  LA!

Space NK 

Space NK has a normal store and they have everything from Kevyn Aucoin to Ren to Eve Lom to Malin + Gotez to Byredo!

Blue Mercury

I saw so many of these while I was there. They have high end makeup and skincare. Think Tom Ford, Bobbi Brown, Clarins, Diptyque, RMS, Oribe and YSL to name a few.

 

IMG_1358

Thats what made the cut for my NY beauty crawl.  Any places you swear by for beauty prouducts? Lemme know! Please! 🙂
