Chanel Rouge Allure Color Shine: I have to admit that it was the cool tube that drew me in on this one. It’s so sleek and seamless, just press down on the gold top and the applicator pops up! I bought 157, Super Coral, a very pretty corally pink on the lips. A fabulous combination of shine, color, and staying power.

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil: I’ve been a fan of MAC’s Lingering for years, but tried this out as part of a set earlier this year. I love the waxier consistency which makes it easier to groom brows, and the brush on the other end is handy. However, nearly double the price of MAC (with similar lifespan), but I love the color, so I’ll probably keep buying. I use Soft Brunette, by the way.

NARS Nail Polish in Chinatown: One of favorite darker red nail polish colors – the closest I’ve been able to find to my discontinued favorite of all time, Opi for Sephora’s Mr. Right Now. A true classic and my husband’s favorite! He always compliments when I wear it.

Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion: I know I mentioned this one in an earlier post, but I still love it! The more I try out other cushion compacts, the more I realize how excellent this one is.

Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Lipcolor: My favorite lipstick right now, moisturizing and with great color payoff. I love the classic tube. The color I use is 434, Mademoiselle, a beautiful pinky neutral which I think would be flattering on most.
