This month, we’re speaking winter favourites. In case you haven’t seen, it’s chilly as hell. We’ve picked three objects which can be getting us via the bitter deep freeze.
Bite Agave Lip Mask
There is nothing that tops this for lips. No-thing. I’ve been raving about it for a couple of years and my emotions stay unchanged. It’s not low-cost, however it’s tremendous concentrated so that you solely want a dot and I can truthfully say I can’t bear in mind the final time I had chapped lips; I believe it’s so extremely therapeutic as a result of it incorporates lanolin, the identical ingredient utilized in nipple cream for breastfeeding. It additionally smells faintly of vanilla. We shall by no means half methods. —L.H.
Weleda Skin Food
In the previous couple of weeks, I’ve reached for this tube a number of occasions. It’s tremendous thick and a few folks might discover it too greasy however you want that depth when it’s this dry. I apply it to my arms, heels, legs, round nostrils when it’s sore from an excessive amount of nostril blowing and pressure it on my youngsters, whether or not on their cheeks, or round their mouths when it will get crimson from lip licker’s dermatitis (Yes that’s a factor). And it could actually additionally double as a highlighter. —L.H.
Nars Blush in “413 BLKR”
I’ve been making an effort to use blush once more in order that I don’t look so washed out. I’d forgotten how a lot I like this one: it’s a brilliant pink that doesn’t have a speck of shimmer and the lightest dab with a brush is all you want. —L.H.
Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick
A matte lipstick might seem to be an odd alternative for a winter fave, however belief me after I say that is probably the most snug matte I’ve ever worn. There are 14 shades within the line, starting from brilliant reds, oranges and pinks to nudes to much less standard colors like inexperienced and blue. I’m keen on the brights (Ma’Damn, Candy Venom and Saw-C), particularly on dreary days. In reality, I wore the crimson (Ma’Damn) all through the vacations and never solely did I overlook I had something on, however it lasted via Christmas dinner—turkey, stuffing and all—without having for reapplication. Let that sink in. —S.M
Korres Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil
My pores and skin doesn’t actually get dry, like, ever. No, not even within the winter. But this attractive oil is the ultimate step in my nighttime routine this season as a result of it feels and smells so good that I need to succeed in for it each evening, even when I overlook that I must be hydrating like loopy. Rose oil can also be chock filled with Vitamin C (which I worship on the altar of), so it leaves pores and skin brilliant and supple. Oh, and as you may see, it’s very Instagrammable, because of the rose petals it’s infused with. —S.M
Chanel La Crème Main Hand Cream
Similar to my face state of affairs, my arms don’t get dry, however I’m effectively conscious that if I don’t begin caring for them now, I’ll remorse it after I’m older. I began holding this Chanel hand cream in my purse—I received’t lie—purely due to the lovable packaging. But the cream is extremely nourishing and, most significantly, absorbs superbly and doesn’t go away a greasy movie, so I discover myself reaching for it increasingly. —S.M
