I wake up with atrocious dark circles and puffiness under my eyes. Like, scary-bad. I don’t bother with concealer most days because I’m so awful at applying it, and fear I just make the situation worse. It has been my belief that there isn’t an eye product out there that can do a damn thing about the circles, but this eye gel does appear to minimize them, and to reduce—if not eradicate—puffiness.
I love this Japanese drugstore blush—like all of my Japanese drugstore beauty products, it took forever to arrive but was worth the wait: it goes on really clean and luminescent and endows me with a nice post-yoga glow even on the days I skipped yoga.
This luminizer from RMS is a relatively new addition to my beauty arsenal. It is a product about which I had heard raves, so—even though luminizer confuses me—I decided to give it a whirl. I apply a touch to my cheek and brow-bones, and down the bridge of my nose, as instructed. It definitely adds a very nice, quite subtle, glowiness.
I don’t use this product daily—I just pull it out on days when my eyes are on the red, irritated side. You apply it to the lower waterline—that’s the inside—of your lashes, and at first it looks a little extreme, but then it blends in quickly.
Lipstick never lasts too long on me, and I can’t bear not to have lipstick on at all times if I’m out (I fear look washed-out without it) so I’ve been on a quest to find a really good primer because that is supposed to help. This is the first one I think is worth getting excited about. It’s kind of a pain if you’re in a rush because it’s best to give it a moment to dry after application, but if you’ve got the time, it’s worth the extra 70 seconds or so.
