BEAUTYCOUNTER · Velvet Eyeshadow Palettes, Radiant All Over Bronzer & Satin Powder Blush

 

Lately I’ve been exploring “green” beauty options, in large part to BEAUTYCOUNTER, a brand that’s committed to producing luxury quality cosmetics and skincare that’s as well-crafted as many higher-end counterparts, but without any suspect or banned ingredients. That said, opening up each item I received may have caused my heart to skip a beat, but I still had my suspicions regarding performance; that was before I began testing everything out … #nospoilers

NARS · Atomic Blonde Eye and Cheek Palette

 

When I heard that NARS was releasing a palette named Atomic Blonde, there was NO WAY ON EARTH that I would pass that up; for starters, it’s all about warm-toned neutrals (my jam) then there’s the name, which calls to mind the movie “Atomic Blonde” starring one of my all-time girl crushes, Charlize Theron.

Their longevity in the marketplace has another advantage: they’ve not only perfected that perfect golden radiance, but have improved it to the point where anyone will be hard pressed to tell it apart from the real deal. I’m in.

Guerlain · Make it a Terracotta Summer

 

Maybe it’s because I’m born in July, but I’m a Summer girl through & through, and nothing captures the spirit of the season better than Guerlain’s Terracotta — especially this glorious fragrance. But the venerable house hasn’t stopped there, having released several other products under the Terracotta banner that are definitely worthy of the name.
