I know. It happened ages ago. But I still wanted to share what I picked up in the Sephora VIB sale. Because of reasons.

I’ve been on the hunt for my “holy grail” foundation, and because of all the raves it receives, I knew that Armani Lasting Silk Foundation HAD to be on the list.

Continuing where we left off with my Paris pharmacy haul, I now present the droolworthy Paris haul of high-end products I
sold my soul for invested in. I managed to do quite a bit of damage in a very short amount of time (about an hour…this is why I had a list!). My sister was appalled impressed.

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*
This week’s question again comes from my friend Andrea, and seems fitting since I am currently traveling.
What was your best or most memorable shopping experience while traveling?
There are SO many to pick from, for me! But last year around this time when I was in Spain, I scored my Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain in Garçonne for about €23 at a random tax-free store on the street in Malaga!! (It retails for $49.50 at home.) 😀

I’m not sure if you know this, but I’m a little bit of a red lipstick aficionado. So with the day of hearts and flowers and red lips (gag gag gag, sorry) upcoming, I thought I would share my top red lipstick picks at every budget level (and in every formula)!
Yes, you read that correctly. I bought something. (I haven’t been as good, in general, as I’ve made myself out to be, anyway. :p But I have been so restrained, I don’t know where it’s come from.) Well, with 20% off and store credit, how could I not get something?!
The problem was really more what not to get. There are so many things in my “loves,” and it’s the best time to buy.
But I was good. I was so good. I only bought 2 things that I actually needed.
I mean, really, I ONLY BOUGHT TWO THINGS.
Salut tout le monde! Hi everyone! J’espère que vous avez un bon week-end! I hope that you’re all having a good weekend!
Continuing the request for my basic daily beauty routine, today I’m going to tell you nothing, because I am naturally beautiful and don’t need any makeup.
Ha, I wish! I really do envy those women who wake up and are just beautiful. I need to put a little more work in, but, hey, I also enjoy the process. If you have to do it, at least love what you do!
Disclaimer: I know it looks like a lot, but I don’t use all of the things pictured all of the time. So relax. 😉

I need to start with the 2 products I feel have really changed my life. With my oily skin, I have not only tried all the skincare I could to control my oil, I’ve also tried pretty much every mattifying and/or oil-free foundation out there. And then I read about Hourglass cosmetics and their Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, I read the reviews, and I went to the Barneys counter to see for myself.
I have a confession to make. I’m what you might call “promiscuous” when it comes to perfume.
Growing up, I knew what a signature scent was in theory, but in practice, it seemed as abstract and unreal as the Yeti or Loch Ness Monster. It also had an allure that I seemed to lack, a girl growing up in Brooklyn. A signature scent seemed to evoke a chic Parisian woman who walks by and you turn your head because she smells so good and you don’t know what it is. And, bien sur, she won’t tell.
The romance of fragrance still feels very French to me as an adult. I still assume every French woman has a signature scent, something that is not available in the United States, and that they keep the name as secret as their internet passwords.
I can’t even say that it evoked a sophistication I didn’t have yet, as a teenager (or even now as an adult, big geek that I am), and that’s why I shied away from one. Honestly? I just liked smelling different every day. It was fun. It was like playing a different person every day. (I still do this with my makeup. I rarely look the same from day to day.)
So I was the girl buying every new perfume when it came out, desperate to get my hands on the latest and greatest. There was Pleasures and Trésor and Happy and my cherry-blossom-smelling G Gigli and my wear-in-winter-only tuberose Fracas. There were the two scents that just smelled so damn good on me, Eternity and Chaos. And let’s not forget Samsara and the summer I wore only Sexy Graffiti. Or the first time I went to Paris, and I followed Suzy Gershman’s advice and went to the most amazing duty-free perfume store ever, Catherine (which has since closed down, lucky for my wallet). I think my sister and I walked away from there with 4 new perfumes (in addition to the Spring Flower I had already bought at Creed), including a 3.4 oz tester of J’adore that was pure perfume (parfum!), not eau de anything. (For only $100!)
And, yes, I spent all that money. Because, as you know, perfume don’t come cheap. I actually feel faint when I think of the money I’ve spent on perfume over the years, especially considering how many of them it turned out I couldn’t wear.
