My monthly roundup of beauty favorites is now live! I've mixed it up a bit in today's post, ranging from different items in skincare and makeup. In today's post, I'm featuring several on-the-go products ranging from a multi-purpose eyeshadow palette, antiperspirant wipes and even a hair color corrector. There are also a couple of beauty brands that I LOVE but just haven't had the pleasure of trying until now. One is Laura Mercier and the other is Guerlain! I even found my summer's moisturizer for those extra hot days, and trust me, you don't want to miss out on this creme! Continue reading to check out all the details plus reviews and as always, links to directly shop the beauty products featured in today's post.
MED e TATE your way to a blissfully dry existence with antiperspirant wipes that purify the being and help reduce embarrassing sweating and wetness. This patented harmonious union of antiperspirant therapy is fortified with botanicals to help create a supremely dry state of consciousness with a simple swipe. These wipes are a lifesaver, especially in the summertime when the temps rise. I find using a few wipes, one after the other helps on those extra hot days. I do notice a shine left from using them, but a little face powder takes that away. Great for people who sweat more than the average person, you can use them on your face, neck, underarms and on your hands.
KP Duty is an AHA moisturizing therapy for dry skin that contains a patented blend of glycolic acid, green tea extra and urea to help exfoliate, calm and hydrate skin. It helps to improve the appearance of parched skin and rough chicken skin bumps (like keratosis pilaris), leaving your skin feeling softer, smoother and more hydrated. This condition develops when the skin produces too much of a protein called keratin, which can block hair follicles and cause bumps to develop. The bumps are usually on the arms, thighs, cheeks, and buttocks. They're white, sometimes red, and typically don't hurt or itch. But they're annoying! I always get them during the summer and this is the ONLY lotion that helps get rid of these bumps! Highly recommended.
LAURA MERCIER FACE ILLUMINATOR POWDER 'DEVOTION'
A long-wearing, buildable and versatile highlighting powder that provides a natural-looking, radiant, allover glow. Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder highlights the skin with pure light-reflecting pigments for a color-true, multidimensional, and luminous finish that complements all skin tones. Its non-dusting texture allows for excellent color payoff and applies smoothly and evenly onto skin without dragging. Designed to complement all skin tones, the unique formula brings natural-looking radiance to the complexion for an instant glow that lasts up to eight hours.
LAURA MERCIER FAN POWDER BRUSH
"I developed this product to help women create a radiant look for themselves using a performance makeup artist tool that allows a buildable layer of shine from subtle illumination to extreme radiance." Laura Mercier A fan brush made to pick up and softly apply product onto the skin for a flawless application, I love that it's buildable to your liking. Some days I want that glow to be more subtle where others I want to pack that extra 'punch' to my skin. This brush has become an essential highlight brush in my makeup brush arsenal!
GUERLAIN ABEILLE ROYALE YOUTH WATERY OIL
Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil offers the skin all the power of Guerlain-exclusive ingredients: Ouessant Black Bee Honey and exclusive Royal Jelly. This revolutionary formula combines the power of a serum, the richness of an oil and the freshness of a lotion. The skin appears instantly smoother, plumper and revitalized. Replenishing micro-drops of oil are released at the very last minute, leaving the complexion looking radiant. The skin feels incredibly silky and baby-soft to the touch. Shake the bottle. Take 2-3 drops of the oil. Apply morning and night to the face and neck before the cream, instead of, or before the serum. Bee products are some of the world's most effective natural healing substances. Guerlain Research has extracted their powerful active ingredients to create Abeille Royale: a skincare programme with a Repairing Concentrate that stimulates key skin repairing mechanisms, continuously helping to diminish wrinkles and maintain skin firm. Definitely an A+ in my skincare book.
GUERLAIN KISSKISS MATTE LIPSTICK IN HOT CORAL
Guerlain imagines KissKiss Matte, a hydrating and plumping matte lipstick, intense like a lipstick and comfortable like a balm. The subtle spice extract it contains gives the impression of voluminous lips while the precious oils and the hyaluronic acid smooth and hydrate them. KissKiss Matte offers 9 captivating shades for all special occasions. The iconic packaging is adorned with a golden matte veil. My favorite color for the summer is their 'Hot Coral' shade.
KÉRASTASE TOUCHE CHROMATIQUE IN COOL BROWN
Kérastase Touche Chromatiques - Cool Brown is an ink-in-care to mix in Masque Chromatique. It neutralizes unwanted red reflects for an enhanced cool brown. I use this product about once a week to keep my hair from looking too brassy. They have other color correctors for copper and red shades as well. It's perfect for those who don't have time to make a trip to the salon every few weeks. I try to go every two months if time allows it. This has been such a game changer in terms of color for my hair in between salon visits!
AMOREPACIFIC THE ESSENTIAL CREME FLUID
The Essential Crème Fluid offers the ultimate in green tea antioxidants for your skin. Each bottle contains 150 baby green tea leaves handpicked from the brand's green tea gardens. T-Essentials, a vital nutrient from green tea polysaccharides and green tea carotenoid, enhance and recover skin's moisture, texture, and flexibility. Neutra-Melting Emulsion Technology, the brand's exclusive technology, neutralizes oils from botanicals for all the nutrient-rich benefits in a silky texture. Micro Moisture Capsule Factor unlocks moisture deep within skin's layers and teaches skin to retain moisture more effectively.
PYT BEAUTY NO BS EYESHADOW PALETTE
Consider this your new go-to, on-the-go eyeshadow palette. 8 shades, including essential mattes and glam shimmer finishes (plus a mirror to do it on the fly). PYT knows you hate hitting the pan on your favorite base shades, so they've made them twice as big.
