Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream


Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream


The Coco Cabana Cream ($45; sephora.com) is new from Sol de Janeiro, a gorgeously tropical scented, coconut and sugar infused oil-in-water gel cream. The texture is almost like a bouncy gel-cream with a lightweight feel. It does feel cool upon application and absorbs pretty quickly. The scent is more of a toasted coconut-warm vanilla mix - super delicious and sweet. Much like the Bum Bum Cream, the scent lingers on and is on the stronger side. This is pretty moisturizing on my dry skin and keeps me comfortably moisturized. I do prefer the Brazilian Bum Bum cream's fragrance over this one, but this one does not have shimmer and is a tad less richer and lighter feeling, so perfect for all through the year.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer | New Shades, Quick Swatches


Dior Addict Lip Maximizer | New Shades, Quick Swatches


Dior has added a few new shades to their Dior Addict Lip Maximizer ($34; dior.com) line. The new colors are a mix of cremes and holographic shimmers and deliver the same glossy, plumping effect as the original Lip Maximizer. There’s a slight minty tingle to the formula and they are very moisturizing and super glossy. The newer colors are a lot more fun and perfect if you like sheer glosses with a subtle pop of color. While I cannot comment on the longevity of these since I only tried them on for a short while, they felt like any other plumping gloss and would make for a great everyday gloss that can also be layered.

Chantecaille Lip Chic Lip Color in Tea Rose


 Chantecaille Lip Chic Lip Color in Tea Rose


Chantecaille’s Lip Chic Lip Color in Tea Rose ($38; shop.nordstrom.com) has become one of my most favorite, go to lipsticks that I’ve been wearing a lot of recently. Its a gorgeous sheer rose that would look great on any skin tone. Its a beautiful formula too and feels super moisturizing. The color is perfection and the packaging, like everything else from Chantecaille, is minimalistic chic and very classy. If you like sheer lipsticks with a touch of gloss and want something super easy to swipe and go, this is perfect. I would definitely try a color or two more since the color range is just fabulous.
