May Beauty Buys

When we were getting ready for our England trip, I knew there was going to be some jet-lag happening, and I didn’t want to look puffy-eyed and sleepy in all our photos! My mom had a pack of Shiseido eye masks and she graciously let me take a few of them for the road. The results are amazing! After washing your face put them on for 15 minutes and let them work their magic. I instantly looked more alert and was de-puffed and ready to go. (You can understand that I did not take a photo with them on).  This is one of the only products I have ever used where I can see an immediate difference. While they aren’t cheap, they are wholly worth the investment. Also, a pack of 12 could last quite a bit if you use them sparingly.

Another recent discovery: Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede Cologne. It is delicious – a little bit floral yet musky. My mom also turned me onto it! She’s got good taste, what can I say? Anyway, I’ve been using their Orange Blossom for a bit but this one is very good. I also really love their Dark Amber & Ginger Lily cologne. It is technically unisex and that is usually no bueno, but Dan and I both loved it. We could share! However, the perfume at the top of my wish list is Santal 33 by Le Labo.

Finally, Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in deep burgundy. I love black liquid liner, but sometimes you just don’t need to go there! This is a great color for daytime and makes green eyes pop.

Happy shopping!
