Pur 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 15

Pur 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 15



The 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 15 ($29; purcosmetics.com) is one of my very first products from pur. Its a sheer-medium finish pressed powder/foundation that I like on top of lighter bases. I’ve currently been loving a light dusting over my Givenchy Teint Couture Blurring Foundation Balm. I chose the shade Golden Medium, which matches me perfectly and helps set my makeup. There is just a little bit of a powdery cast initially, but it fades to a really nice, dewy finish as the product wears. I like to use a fluffy powder brush with this and really like the not so matte, but slightly dewy finish it gives. I also like that it comes with sun protection and if you have a good skin day, you could just use it on its own on top of moisturizer. I’ve worn it on a very hot and humid day when I’ve spent most of my time outdoors and it stayed fresh looking without getting too greasy. Overall, a great powder to set makeup with or to wear on its own, although I personally prefer it mostly as a sheer layer of setting powder than as a foundation.

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.
