Ah, love. Love, love, love, love, love, love, as Ben Stiller said in The Heartbreak Kid, in the only funny line of the film.
Anyway! Here are just some of the many, many products I currently love. (Or "love" as they say in New Zealand.)
Prevage anti-aging night cream.
Ah yes, that synthetic antioxidant show-off, Idebenone, making us
all stay looking younger by fighting off free radicals in the kind of
kickass way nature simply can’t match. This night cream version of the
treatment is possibly even better than the ‘serum’, original for me,
cause it has an even more concentrated dose of the good stuff and
contains Vitamin A for better skin repair through the night. In a nutshelly version: My skin
feels lovely and soft and plump in the morning, and I especially love
that I can wack it on after cleansing at night, and skip using a serum
cause it’s that potent. After all, wasn’t it… someone… important, possibly religious, who said easiness is next to excellenceless? Yes. It totally was.
Radness factor: Stratospheric.
Bobbi Brown Luminous Foundation.
How much do i love makeup that includes skincare ingredients: Probably
more than the paparazzi love Britney. This particular baby has collagen
boosting hexapeptides and milk thistle extract, which is probably why
my skin looks so lovely and luminous all day when I wear it. I especially love it for
night. It’s a medium coverage, radiant without shimmer – easily
buildable if you need to cover blemishes or pigmentation, though. Oh gosh. This
is all sounding well familiar. Have I spoken about this baby before? If I
have, pardon, pardon. If i haven’t, it’s uh, real nice and I like it.
Awesomeness rating: As high as this. (My arm is up as high as I can hold it, and I’m standing on the lounge.)
Lancome Virtuose mascara.
I think I may have discussed my love for Other Mascaras once or 56 times before, but I have yet to talked up the splendour and long lashiness and curviness of this mascara. A long time volume lover, I made the switch to curl and length only out of necessity: I’d run out of my other current mascara obsession, Hypnose. But oh, the magic that awaited my little lash curtains. The brush, is curved, you see, but more than that, it actually grips your lashes and coats them as sweeps up and out. Clever, so clever. And the curl! The length! Happily, there’s still even some volume. In all, a wild little adventure in coating and curling lashes. No eyelash curler required. Seriously.
Genius factor: Einstein-esque.
