Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream

The Super Multi-Corrective Cream ($65; kiehls.com) is a luxurious daytime moisturizer from Kiehls that I’ve been having on my skincare rotation lately. It's a gorgeous moisturizer with a rich, yet non greasy texture that helps moisturize, soften and even skin tone. I use this during the day, by itself and also under makeup and have not had any issues with greasiness or makeup piling up. I have also been using this for a couple of months now and have not even gone through half of the 1.7oz jar. A little bit goes a really long way with this one and this really is a year round cream that I can use for anytime, no matter how my skin feels. There’s a slight, herbal scent to it that dissipates rather quickly and isn’t bothersome for me. If you have normal-dry, aging skin and want a great daytime moisturizer, this is something I’d absolutely recommend.

MAC Smoked Almond Lipstick

Smoked Almond ($19; maccosmetics.com) is a very recent discovery of mine that I think is a perfect nude for someone whose skin tone is similar to mine or darker. It's a gorgeous brown-nude with just a hint of rose. The formula is MAC’s Amplified Creme, which is full coverage, creamy and super comfortable on the lips. I don't see too many people talk about Smoked Almond as much as they do about the other MAC nude lipsticks and this one is definitely something I’d recommend for anyone who likes a nude that doesn’t look too pale or wash you out. I’m not a fan of very full coverage lipsticks, but this is very easy to wear, doesn’t really need a lip liner and has the right amount of pigment and slip. Overall, I’d definitely call it a must have from MAC if you like a good, everyday neutral that can be paired with anything.

Gucci Beauty Sheer Lipstick in Mildred Rosewood

The Gucci Beauty Sheer Lipstick in Mildred Rosewood ($42; sephora.com) is a luxuriously formulated sheer lipstick that comes packaged inside a gorgeous, weighty tube. The formula, like all sheer lipsticks, is glossy and balmy with a hint of color. Mildred Rosewood is a sheer berry that looks more like a soft plum on my pigmented lips. I love the packaging - right from the gold tone and floral pattern to the magnetic closure and heavy-ish petite tube. It is quite a moisturizing formula that I would get a lot of use out of. And also since I happen to love sheer lipsticks, this one is something I’d absolutely wear anytime of the year. It's an effortless formula that can be swiped without having to worry about using a lip liner. Like most sheer lipsticks, this one too lasts for about 3-4 hours before completely fading. The color isn't the most unique, but the formula feels comfortable and if you, like me, tend to gravitate towards pretty packaging, this is something worth looking into!
