It’s so hard to believe the year is wrapping up! In the past several months, I feel as though my personal style has finally grounded itself in the direction I’ve always wanted to take it. This was a huge year of growth for me in my personal goals, and for that, I’m so grateful. With 2017 coming to a close, it’s time for a roundup of some of my favorite products and purchases!
Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne – This is one of the newer additions to the vanity. I caught a whiff of it for the first time in Saks 5th Ave a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love. It’s floral, romantic, and everything I’ve ever wanted in a fragrance.
Glossier You – When Glossier announced their first fragrance I knew I had to have it. It has hints of musk and iris and meshes with your own personal scent, hence, “YOU.”
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm – I bought this on a whim on Revolve and now I can’t live without it. With the weather being so dry and cold, this stuff is a lifesaver. I use it every day when I wake up and before I go to bed.
Ouai Wave Spray – When I cut my hair short over the summer, I relied on quick beachy waves because it was the only style I could really work with. I love the extra volume this product gives my hair without looking like I even used a product. It leaves my hair stays silky and shiny throughout the day!
Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich – My favorite Glossier product, and probably my favorite product just in general. The rich lavender scent is SO luxurious, and it feels like a high-end face cream even though the price tag is only $35. You really can’t beat it.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O – This micellar water cleanser is the best I’ve found for removing makeup. It’s so gentle and soothing and doesn’t burn the eyes. Believe the hype on this one, babes.
Glossier Invisible Shield – I was skeptical about this product at first due to the size (1 fl oz), along with the $34 price tag. I’ve never had a good relationship with sunscreens and I could never commit myself to wearing it every day. This sunscreen changed that — and how many people can say they look forward to applying their sunscreen? Invisible Shield goes on clear and smells amazing. If Glossier comes out with a higher SPF, I’ll be 100% sold, but for now, I’m perfectly happy with Invisible Shield.
PF Candle Co Coconut Soy Candle – Pretty sure I’ve raved about this one before. It’s self-explanatory. Love it.
YSL Rouge pur Couture Lipstick in Rouge Vermillion – I was looking for a deep red lipstick that wasn’t too deep, but wasn’t too bold. This color is like a raspberry red and is super hydrating for my dry lips. I gently dab it on before work and it lasts all day! Now just to find the perfect nude shade in 2018…
Bagatiba 1SM Necklace – Bagatiba is one of my very favorite jewelry brands. Their 1SM Necklace goes with everything and gets so many compliments. I love seeing the 1SM paired with their D2C so I just ordered one to go with it (stay tuned).
Mejuri Sapphire Hoops – Mejuri was sweet enough to gift these dainty hoops to me early in the fall and I’ve worn them pretty much every day since (I should probably invest in some more earrings but I’m too in love with these).
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Melody – I’ve gone back and forth between loving and hating eyeshadows in general but I’ve finally found “the one.” It was only this year that I started playing with cream eyeshadows, and I absolutely love how buildable they are. The shade Melody from Chanel is perfect because it’s ever so subtle, with the right amount of shimmer.
YSL Touche Éclat Blur Perfector – This works like a powder but has the consistency of a balm, so ultimately it doesn’t make a mess! This product cuts shine and mattifies so effortlessly.
Hope you found a few favorites of your own in this lineup. Its been a wonderful 2017. Here’s to the new year!
