It's been too long ... my bad. I'm entering into my two insane months, where everyone has a birthday or a recital, or an anniversary. I need a project plan just to get through the end of June, and a chef, a wife and a professional organizer. Throw in a personal trainer too. Yeah, that works.
That said, I am dying to share my latest favorites with you all ... in a way they are making my life easier, those little multi-tasking marvels that can make a pleasant difference in the life of someone with too little time.
Sugar Rose balm by Fresh. Yes, I used to make fun of this product (as much as I loved Fresh). It's lip balm... in a metal tube ... for like $20. Crazy. Well scrap that. I received a trial size somewhere along the line and finally gave it a shot. Oh wow, it's really worth the hype. Smooth like butter with a little bit of shine and a perfect dose of healthy color that makes you look more pulled together than you really are. In a rush? Dab a little on your cheeks. Spf 15. Enough said. Totally worthy of your makeup shortlist. I'd bring it with me if I was trapped on a desert island. For sure.
Nail Glow by Dior. Another tiny little miracle worker. This polish looks like a clear bright pink in the bottle but imparts a lovely sheer glow while somehow making the White part of your fingernails look whiter. A bit like a French mani but muuuuuuch classier. The best part is that you can do it yourself, and it's really hard to screw up the application. Yes it's ~$20 a bottle but if you're paying $12 for a crappy manicure at a salon that lasts 3 days before imploding, you break even pretty quickly. I am totally in love.
Tantalizer by Lorac. This is my secret weapon. A crazy looking liquid bronzer that's intimidating as all get out (until you learn how to apply it). I add a pea size amount to plain lotion and apply to my legs, especially in the early spring when they're so pale that could likely blind innocent bystanders with their glow. It cuts the glare in the loveliest of ways. ** Don't use it if you're going to be wearing a lot of white, it does rub off a tiny bit. Other than that you're golden ... really.
