Stila Color Balm Lipstick In Aubrey

Stila Color Balm Lipstick In Aubrey


Stila’s Color Balm Lipstick in Aubrey ($22; sephora.com) is a perfect plum-pink and a great everyday neutral for medium-dark skin tones and one of my top picks for fall. Its a gorgeous formula too - very pigmented, balmy and feels ultra comfortable without any heaviness. I also much prefer like their newer packaging too. There’s a very faint, minty scent that fades pretty soon and a slight plumping effect without too much of a tingle. The shade, Aubrey, is a great neutral for work or just about anywhere and while it is described as a mid tone mauve berry, it looks more like a plum-pink on me. I get about 3-4 hours of wear from this one and love the soft sheen it has without being too glossy or too matte. While I cannot speak for the other colors in the range, I can totally recommend Aubrey if you are looking for a beautiful plum pink that is easy to wear and works with pretty much any skin tone.

Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream





I’ve been using the Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream ($32; shop.nordstrom.com) for a while now, especially through summer & absolutely love it. Its a lightweight, quick absorbing foot cream that moisturizes really well. The scent isn’t minty or tingly like most foot creams, in fact, a very nice aromatic fragrance that feels relaxing. It feels quite emollient as well, so nice to massage it in at the end of a long day. Even though a lithe goes a long way, I did end up finishing the tube faster than I do with most foot creams. Like most body care I’ve tried from Elemis, this one too doesn’t disappoint and it is one of the nicest foot creams I have ever tried. Its a relaxing treat and a very non sticky, light formula that can also be used during the day.

Alima Pure Lip Tints In Poppy & Peony

Alima Pure Lip Tints In Poppy & Peony



Alima Pure Lip Tint ($14; alimapure.com; detoxmarket.com is a sheer moisturizing lip balm with a nice wash of color in a semi matte finish. The formula is very nourishing, feels like a weightless, non waxy lip balm and the packaging too is nice and simple. Poppy and Peony are newer colors, Poppy being a brick red and Peony, a fresh pink. Both go on quite sheer and the color can be built up to a medium tint that looks quite natural, yet covers uneven lip pigmentation. They wear comfortably through the day and don’t dry my lips out. The formula does tend to harden a little bit overtime because of the oils and waxes, so be sure to warm it up a little before use. That apart, they are very effortless, easy lip balms for the summer that can even be used underneath lipsticks to add an extra layer of hydration.
