I even use this oil as a cleansing balm to remove makeup from the day, but my favorite use of this oil is for my hair. Now that I’m trying to grow my hair long, it keeps the ends moisturized and softer. And the subtle smell is incredible.

Formulated with Damask Rose Extract and Gold, this serum is formulated to relieve inflamed skin and enhance natural radiance. This radiance booster is a bit expensive, retailing at $160 at.68 fl oz (!!) but it is well worth the investment.

March Beauty Favorites

Happy Friday, everyone! Better late than never, (well, almost...) my March beauty favorites are now live on the blog! I normally will roundup between 8-10 different products of all different beauty regiments, whether skincare, makeup, haircare and more, I like to mix it up to show you what's new, what have been my favorites (old school too) and products that are appropriate according to the season. (that I'm currently in.) But in this month's picks, I've selected several products from the same brand! Some are collections, like the new Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lipglosses, which are totally outrageous, and others are suitable together, like the first one which is the latest skincare I've been using. Continue reading to learn more and to also get the direct links to shop these items for yourself! Enjoy the long weekend and Happy Easter! (for those who celebrate, x.)

I was first introduced to Retrouvé while working backstage in NYFW, and since using their skincare products, my skin has never looked or felt better! ✨ I’ve been using the Luminous Cleansing Elixir, the Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream, and the Revitalizing Eye Concentrate 🖤 (all so fantastic & did I mention it’s unisex?!) and Retrouvé integrates a high concentration of deeply nourishing actives (squalane and vitamin E & C), preventative antioxidants (white tea, pomegranate) and powerful restoratives (apple stem cells), all of which work together to bring out a supple, radiant complexion. 🙌🏻 The luxury skin care line is a bit pricey but so worth it! Here's a breakdown of these 3 products:

Luminous Cleansing Elixir

An elegant, water-free cleansing balm rich in beneficial oils that is ideal to massage onto the skin for an ultimate cleansing experience to moisturize the skin while gently removing dirt, debris, and residue from its surface.

Dynamic Nourishing Face Cream

A rich, soothing cream that elegantly delivers powerful antioxidants and nourishing ingredients to the skin, thus imparting softness and hydration. Utilizing a unique natural sugar-based technology, this classic creamy moisturizer helps transport actives deep into the dermis while reducing irritation and inflammation, making it ideal for sensitive skin.

Revitalizing Eye Concentrate

A revitalizing eye treatment that enriches and plumps the delicate skin around the eyes. Designed to hydrate the skin in the same way it would naturally, this rich, water-free concentrate gently moisturizes the sensitive skin surrounding the eye areas via a powerful fusion of Squalane and pharmaceutical-grade Cholesterol Esters.

SHOP RETROUVE

Essie nail polish

Treat yourself this season with the ultimate spring trend shades: the limited edition Essie 2018 spring collection. Anchor Down, a denim blue washed with pewter gray undertones; Bon Boy-age, a nautical mint green; Perfect Mate, a pristine pop of coral pink; At the Helm, a fire orange tinged with tomato red; Stripes & Sails, an emerald/teal calmness; and Pass-port to Sail, my favorite whitish/gray toned go-to nail polish. I've been wearing this one for weeks! I think these colors would also be great combinations for more detailed nail art. Which colors would you put together? 

SHOP THE ESSIE COLLECTION

In ancient Greece, one myth stood out as the most passionate and sensual: the love between Psyche and Eros, the beauty's quest to meet with her lover and the happy outcome of their union which led to the birth of their daughter, Hedone. Only one scent can convey this legend as a fragrance, that of musks. Equally legendary, they have the unique ability to enhance the skin with their arousing carnal accents. They are at the very heart of Fleur de Peau, as cottony and light as they are soft and moist. Highlighted with the elegantly powdery iris and fruity, ambery ambrette seeds, they reveal their full tactile dimension.

Winter Makeup Routine with Neutrogena®

With the harsh winter weather causing havoc on my skin, it's good to know there are not just skincare brands doing the legwork to keep our skin well-moisturized and healthy, but also makeup collections like Neutrogena® - which is doing both! Naturally found in skin and in their HydroBoost Cosmetics Collection, hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge and can absorb up to 1000X its weight in water, helping these formulas boost your skin’s hydration levels. In today's post, I'll be sharing my favs from this line by Neutrogena® to achieve a simple clean and natural winter makeup look. And it's with only four products, that's it! Easy peasy and takes less than ten minutes to do! Continue reading to see how to get this beauty look.

When it comes to makeup, I always start with the base, or rather, my face. I first begin with the Neutrogena® HydroBoost hydrating tint foundation in 85 Honey. It refreshes thirsty skin for 24 hours and is a liquid foundation for dry skin. Not only does it boost hydration, but also plumps the skin as well. Next is concealer, especially for dark circles under my eyes. I used the Neutrogena® HyrdoBoost hydrating concealer in 10 Fair. It definitely leaves your skin feeling hydrated all day while minimizing the look of imperfections. Containing hyaluronic acid, this concealer works to leave skin feeling quenched. It applies flawlessly and is available in five blendable shades designed to match multiple skin tones. This lightweight concealer is non-greasy, oil-free, and non-comedogenic.

One thing I'm always paying more attention to during the colder season is my lips. I tend to have extremely dry and sensitive lips and they tend to get quite chapped so I do lip scrubs and lip masks to keep them healthy and nourished. However, with the Neutrogena®  HydroBoost lip treatment, my lips have never felt smoother! I always carry with me some sort of lip balm, and you can bet this is my new go-to lip treatment! The last and final touch to this look is the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine in 80 Deep Cherry. It has the vibrant color of a lipstick, shine of a gloss, and conditioning of a balm. It plumps the look of lips and keeps them looking smoother, juicy, and more supple. The lip shine actually improves the healthy look, softness, smoothness, and condition of your lips over time. What do you guys think of this natural winter makeup look? If you like any of the Neutrogena® HydroBoost products from this post, all products are available at Walmart. You can also shop directly down below.

September Beauty Favorites


THIS POST IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY JIN SOON, FIRST AID BEAUTYLANCÔME BUT ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN.

1.jpg

Happy Friday! I've been getting a lot of feedback from my monthly beauty favorites the past few months and I'm so happy to share with you today my September favorites when it comes to skincare and makeup! Beauty products galore, today I'm talking about my everyday perfume as of late, a multi-butter stick that can be used for lips, cheeks and/or eyes that's such a winner, and my favorite lipstick to tell everyone about right now is by NeoEight in collaboration with LIE Collection, and it's a Korean lip gloss with special features you just HAVE to read about! Continue reading to find out more, along with how I keep my dark circles in check, what is my current favorite nail polish brand, and other amazing beauty products (+ more) that I've been using for a while now or just recently discovered. Come take a look! 

1.  LANCÔME VISIONNAIRE YEUX EYE ON CORRECTION ADVANCED MULTI-CORRECTING EYE BALM

Capture the skin you want to keep forever with Lancôme’s best-selling Visionnaire skin correctors.
The Advanced Multi-Correcting Eye Balm has a triple-correcting effect on the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and under eye bags. Made with Hydra Blur Technology, this cooling eye balm immediately blurs the appearance of imperfections around your eyes. Its lightweight texture blends seamlessly into the skin, targeting fine lines, evening skin tone and reducing the appearance of bags and dark circles. My skin is hydrated all day long and its soft focus blurring effect definitely helps reveal a smoother eye contour. 

2. PETER THOMAS ROTH BLUE MARINE ALGAE INTENSE HYDRATING MASK

This nourishing, refreshing, hydrating gel mask, complete with nutrient-rich glacial lake blue marine algae delivers maximum anti-aging moisture. Energizing Korean Jeju Island tea, Arctic glacial antarcticine creates an eco-bubble barrier to help defend against varying environmental aggressors. It's my favorite mask to use when I'm in need of a quick hydration mask and I don't have a lot of time. I normally do it while I take a shower as it's only about a ten-minute mask. 

3. NAKED® COSMETICS URBAN RUSTIC TRIO PRESSED EYESHADOW PALETTE

If you are a fan of the high-color payoff of our Pigments, you will NOT be disappointed in this new Palette. These highly pigmented pressed eyeshadowshave a soft silky feel, and as with our pigments, a little goes a LONG way. I'm obsessed with the fall-inspired rustic colors and have been using this little palette a lot lately! You can try them separately but I like to combine the colors here and there as well. 

4. LIE X NEOEIGHT N23 RED LIP GLOSS

In collaboration with LIE Collection, a brand I saw at Concept Korea's show during NYFW, I received this amazing lip gloss in their goody bag. What makes this lipstick so unique? First off, I'm a K-Beauty addict and Korean skincare and makeup are first-rate. But it's not just the quality of the gloss or the color or creaminess (which I'm always looking for - hate when lip gloss is sticky) but its applique is insane! It not only has a side mirror, but when you open to apply the lip gloss, an LED light within the bottle turns on, which is the perfect lip gloss to carry while out when it's dark! Perfect for when painting the town red. :) 

5. JIN SOON NAIL POLISH FALL ART NOUVEAU COLLECTION 

I discovered Jin Soon nail polish while covering backstage life for Tibi the past couple of seasons. Also Korean, the Fall Art Nouveau Collections comes in four different colors, Abyss (blue-green), Fable (plum purple), Idyll (red-orange), and Milieu (creamy nude/grey). I love each color and think they complement each other well should you want to do a little more nail art. But regardless, these nail polishes are high-quality and won't chip your nails for over a week! Seriously, the best! 

6. FIRST AID BEAUTY HELLO FAB MANGO BUTTER MULTI STICK ROSE

An all-in-one, cream-to-powder multi-stick that imparts a natural-looking, lit-from-within glow. Solutions for:- Dullness and uneven texture If you want to know more… This must-have cream-to-powder complexion finisher imparts a natural, gorgeous glow. With the help of superfood mango butter, it glides on easily over skin leaving behind a soft, luminous finish that's never dry or cakey. The versatile multi-stick is available in two universally flattering shades that can be used anywhere including the cheek, eyelids, lips, and decollete to capture the light and warm the complexion for a custom finish. The lightweight formula provides buildable coverage to create your desired look, from subtle illumination to intense strobing.

7. OLE HENRIKSEN INVIGORATING NIGHT TRANSFORMATION GEL

Which skin type is it good for? Normal Oily Combination Dry Sensitive An anti-aging serum with potent AHAs to smooth skin texture, even tone, and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep.

This potent retexturizing gel formula is designed for daily use, so you can see results night after night. The cooling gel texture is lightweight to absorb quickly, even as it delivers skin-nurturing hydration.

8. MAISON MARGIELA 'REPLICA' FUNFAIR EVENING

From the first breath, Funfair Evening evokes the carefree, playful ambiance of festivity. The sweet accord merges apple, caramel, orange blossom, and Tahitian vanilla to evoke a familiar but forgotten moment a night of childlike wonder. Close your eyes and let the fragrance transport you to the memory of laughter and playful melodies floating through the warm night air. Splashes of neon color break through the night, vibrant and explosive. The scents of cotton candy and caramel envelop you, filling you with youthful, wide-eyed joy. The silhouette of each 'REPLICA' bottle is inspired by classic apothecary jars, allowing the collection to be instantly identifiable. Each bottle carries a 100 percent cotton label, which is printed using black ink text and resembles the tags used on the clothing and accessories for the 'REPLICA' couture collection. The unique pumps are wrapped with a rope to symbolize the authentic reproduction of the original 'REPLICA' couture line.

9. LANCÔME TEINT IDOLE ULTRA WEAR CAMOFLAUGE CONCEALER

This ultra-pigmented, full-coverage color corrector hides imperfections. It won’t crease or cake, and it easily addresses the following common skin concerns: redness, dark spots, under-eye dark circles, sallowness, dullness, and acne scars. It blends seamlessly for a lightweight, second-skin feel and a natural finish—a little goes a long way.  I use it under my eyes as a color corrector and it's my favorite concealer I've discovered in a very long time!

IMG_9792f.jpg

Happy Friday! What's everyone doing for the long weekend? I'm ready for some much need R&R for the next few days, as come Tuesday it's the beginning of a long and crazy week, AKA: Fashion Week. Today's post I'm sharing my latest beauty favorites that I've discovered and have been using for the past month. There's a ton of skin care and makeup products I'm excited to share with you, ranging from Lancôme, Estee Lauder, YSL Beauty and even a new K Beauty line called, Frudia. I found some really amazing lipsticks and face masks along with a brand new liquid foundation I've never tried, but am now officially obsessed with. Come take a look at all these goodies and how these can be incorporated into your beauty regimen! 

1. KIEHL'S CUCUMBER HERBAL CONDITIONING CLEANSER

You think drinking cucumber-infused water is refreshing? How about washing your face with it?! This ultra-gentle, foaming gel-lotion cleanser softly melts away dirt, impurities, and makeup while conditioning even dry, sensitive skin for a fresh-feeling clean that lasts all day. Formulated with whole cucumbers, carefully extracted to preserve the quality and nutrients of the fruit, and plant-based glycerin, this non-drying, non-irritating cleanser maintains skin's moisture leaving it soothed, velvety soft, and comfortably cleansed. My skin type is combination/oily, so I will definitely be using this cleanser to the start to the chillier season... it'll be perfect during winter time!

2. FRUDIA GREEN GRAPE PORE CONTROL SHEET MASK

Looking to get rid of that extra sebum on your face without drying it up? Stop worrying about oily skin and dirty pores. This nature-derived, botanical sheet contains 60% green grape extract to help tighten pores and balance the skin. Using a face mask like this quickly delivers active ingredients deeply to the skin to balance moisture and soothe your irritated skin. It can be used on all skin types.

3. ESTEE LAUDER REVITALIZING SUPREME PLUS GLOBAL ANTI-AGING CELL POWER CREME

This creme is the key to younger-looking skin. Unlock your skin's youth potential and see it spring back with new bounce, glow with radiant vitality. With Estee Lauder's exclusive RevitaKey Technology featuring exclusive moringa extract, this silky-soft, deeply nourishing multi-action creme encourages skin's natural power to amplify collagen and elastin. Lines and wrinkles look dramatically reduced. Skin's visible firmness, density, and elasticity are significantly improved. In just 4 weeks, 96% of women said their skin felt firmer. After using this creme every night for a little over a month now, I too can attest to an improvement in my skin's overall 'glow.' It's literally amazing.

4. FRUDIA GREEN GRAPE PORE CONTROL TONER

The only kind of toners I ever use are Korean. This pure, refreshing toner made up of 89% green grape extract controls pores with natural grape tannin and helps remove dead skin cells. Panthenol calms agitated skin, while fruits seed oil complex helps to maintain skin clarity. The tannin works with and vitamin E from the green grapes to not only hydrate the skin but keep it smooth and healthy. Soothe and hydrate your irritated skin with this fresh-feeling green grape toner, it smells fantastic too!

5. ORIGINS DR. ANDREW WEIL FOR ORIGINS™ MEGA-MUSHROOM SKIN RELIEF FACE MASK

A non-irritating, redness-reducing facial mask for those rather, extra rough days. The effects of sun, wind, and dehydration can accumulate, and your skin needs extra help to break the cycle. This rich treatment mask with hypsizygus ulmarius, cordyceps, and reishi mushrooms along with ginger, holy basil, and turmeric rushes relief to challenged skin to rapidly soothe signs of compromise. Chinese black bamboo leaf extract celebrated for centuries as a symbol of eternal youth, quells and calms visible redness and reactivity. And a unique blend of marine algae and moisture-replenishing plant extracts helps revitalize and restore luminosity to stressed skin while rebuilding a protective barrier to help avoid future flare-ups. Great for all skin types, skin is left calm and comforted. I use it once a week on top of sheet masks, and it's a great face mask.

6. URBAN DECAY ALL NIGHT LIQUID FOUNDATION 7.75

A full-coverage, matte-finish, waterproof foundation that lasts all night. All Nighter Liquid Foundation by Urban Decay provides full coverage with a modern matte finish that never looks overdone. Get all-night wear and a blown-out effect you never thought was possible for a flawless-looking complexion that looks incredible and stays that way. Perfect for all-night affairs, this innovative formula is also comfortable enough to wear every day. While Naked Skin complexion products are semi-matte, All Nighter Liquid Foundation is completely matte and oil-free. Urban Decay loaded this formula with a higher amount of pigment (about three times as much as Naked Skin Liquid Makeup), so a little goes a long way. There's no need to build coverage or apply multiple layers. This waterproof formula diffuses light to blur flaws for beautifully perfected skin, while it mattifies and absorbs oil to reduce the appearance of shine. It's a wonderful foundation for fall. 

 

7. LANCÔME MATTE SHAKERS HIGH PIGMENT LIQUID LIPSTICKS 186, 270 & 272

A highly pigmented matte liquid lipstick that delivers intense color payoff with a lightweight, second-skin feel. Matte Shaker High Pigment Liquid Lipstick wears comfortably on your lips throughout the day without drying. Its pillow-like cushion applicator allows for precise application without streaking or smudging. And it's formulated with a patented Ultra Thin Film technology and vitamin E, so that lips feel double the thinness of a liquid lipstick and provides comfortable non-drying wear. Its unique cushion sponge allows for maximum absorption of the formula to deliver a precise, soft application onto the lips, and buildable color that dries without smudging or transfer. Just shake it to soak the applicator with formula, and apply the cushion directly onto lips to build the saturated color. Then wait for it to dry down to a lightweight, comfort matte finish. I even love mixing the colors together to blend an entirely different hue as well! Really amazing liquid lipsticks. 

8. YSL BEAUTY SMOKER EYE DUO IN GREEN

A dual-ended eye shadow pen that allows you to shade, line, smudge, and highlight to create easy smoky looks. The eye shadow comes with a creamy texture and water resistant formula. One side of the dual-ended pen has a dark shadow and the other side has a light shadow, so you can use it from day to night. Use the darker color as a base on your eye lid and lower eye lid in one stroke. Use the lighter color as a highlighter on the corner of your eye and at the arch of your eye brow. For a lighter version of the look, start with the light shade as the base on both upper and lower eye lids, then add contrast and structure by applying the darker shade to the outer corner of the eyes. There's an assortment of colors but I loved the green one. You can see it on me in this look here.

9. ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR SYNCHRONIZED RECOVERY COMPLEX II

Reveal a smoother, more radiant, younger look. Wake up to more beautiful skin every day. Tested and proven: Advanced Night Repair dramatically reduces the look of key signs of aging.

This luxurious eye cream gently moisturizes the eye area without migrating into the eyes. Perfect for use under eye makeup, it contains highly effective natural ingredients that provide essential daily hydration and protection.
