Treat Yo’Self: 7 Beauty Splurges To Make This Week
From a facial oil made from superfoods to the lazy girl's mascara and brow pencil equivalent, the week's splurges are multitaskers that'll make the splurging worthwhile.| April 25, 2017
We’re reporting to you live from Halaveli Island in Maldives! There’s something about a beach vacation that puts you in a spending kind of mood, even if it is more of a work retreat than a holiday (emphasis on the word “work”). But, being in a spending mood doesn’t mean you can’t be smart about it. Smart splurging, it’s a thing if you clap your hands and say “I believe”. From a moisturising oil that reverses your skin clock to a jumbo-sized eyeshadow palette with 42 no-nonsense colours, the week’s splurges are either multitaskers or products that boost the efficiency of products that follow. How considerate.
Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil
The very adorably named Sunday Riley already has an impressive track record with their Good Genes serum and we’re expecting Juno to perform the same. Charged with antioxidants, superfood seed oils, amino acids and vitamins, this oil – we absolutely love facial oils, bee-tee-dubs – helps to ease trouble skin AND amp up collagen production to deal with those pesky fine lines. It doesn’t just moisturise, y’all.
Alpha-H Cleansing Cube For Face & Body
We were chatting with our pal Vanessa Hong and got on the topic of how her arms and back were practically glowing. Then, she said something really quite simple and straightforward, “I scrub.” It’s the simple things that make all the difference, eh? For that, place your bets on Alpha-H’s scrub cube. We already love their Liquid Gold Smoothing and Perfecting Mask, and if they can handle the face, the body is hardly a challenge at all.
Glossier Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salve
We’ve got several lip balms we love, but those can set you back almost 50 bucks a pop. If you’re looking for a lip balm that does the job properly well, doesn’t burn a hole in the proverbial wallet and can multitask – hence, more money saved – Glossier’s three-pack is your new beauty BFF. For realsies. Just look at how chic and micro bag-friendly it is while you’re at.
Make Beauty Lip Primer
Everyone loves a liquid lipstick that stays on like its shelf life depended on it – because it actually does, ho ho ho – but there’s no rule against applying a layer of primer under it just to be super sure. Make Beauty’s Lip Primer not only holds the good stuff, it feels up lines, plumps and moisturises with chamomile and Vitamins A, C and E. This may be the most all-rounded lip primer we’ve seen yet.
Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Lip in Gold
Several seasons ago, Miuccia Prada debuted gold lips on the runway. Almost two years later, we’re still obsessed with gold lips. Giving much more than a sheer gold sheen to your lips, Kevyn Aucoin’s brand new gold gloss is surprisingly pigmented and gives a bold, mirror-like finish. GOLD LIPS, FINALLY.
Violet Voss Ride or Die Palette
Oh my god. Oh my god. Are you kidding me with this? Every shade you’ll ever need – including all the season’s It shades like orange, copper, burgundy and brick brown – all in one place, each with the Violet Voss guarantee. BRB, saving $130.
ARTDECO Clear Lash & Brow Gel
You know how somedays you don’t want to look like you tried but you still want to look like you’ve got your shit together? ARTDECO’s clear gel helps you keep your lashes and brows looking healthy and glossy without the heaviness of made-up quality of mascara. Why haven’t we thought about using clear gels on lashes until now?
