Sachajuan Hair Repair ($33; sehora.com) is a fabulous deep conditioning treatment that I’ve been loving lately. Its a quick fix for dull hair that needs a good moisture boost with some shine.A little goes a really long way with this one. I like to use a little bit post shampoo, keeping the product away from my roots. I usually leave it on for about 5-7 minutes and then wash off. There’s no greasy residue, it washes off clean and does not weigh my hair down. I absolutely love the end result and how soft it leaves my hair. I can also skip any hair styling products when I use this one and the scent is great too. Overall, definitely a good one to try if you have dry ends, dull, lackluster hair that needs a good moisture boost.

The Smudge Kajal Eyeliner ($20; stilacosmetics.com) is new from Stilla for Spring '18, a super creamy, smooth formula that stays put through the day. Espresso is a blackened brown with a beautiful matte finish that is easy to work with. It glides on effortlessly and takes a good minute to set, so making it easy to smudge. It also comes with an attached sponge that works in a pinch when you want to quickly create an easy smokey eye. I love the color since it looks more like a soft black on me and doesn’t look too harsh. If you live somewhere humid, this might move around quite a bit, but I don’t mind a little bit of smudging here and there so this is a formula that I’ve been reaching out to quite a lot lately. I’m now curious to try Intense Black since it looks like a promising jet black that I’m always looking for the waterline.

The Dior Addict Lip Glows ($34; sephora.com) are among my favorite sheer lipsticks-lipbalm hybrid. I always reach for these when I want a sheer, glossy lip and have one in my bag all the time. Here are my top favorites and ones I’ve been using quite a lot in the past few months. Pink Glow is a very subtle pink that is the most natural looking on me. Although I’ve seen this turn into a bright pop of color on many, it remains a very see through light wash of pink on me. Coral Glow is a nice pop of coral for when you don’t want something too bright, yet want a bit of color added. It does turn into a stain after a while and has a very plush, glossy finish for the first couple of hours. Raspberry is a very recent one that came out with Dior’s Spring collection. Raspberry is a very lovely fresh pink that would look great on all skin tones. Berry is another fabulous plum-pink that I always reach for. Pink also makes for a great base for under lipsticks since it just adds a little glow and enhances the natural lip color. Overall, if you love sheer, balmy lipsticks, these are fabulous and must haves. While I won’t consider these overly nourishing, they do help keep lips comfortably soft and moisturized.
