WORTH THE INVESTMENT: VALMONT’S l’ ELIXIR DES GLACIERS

// Valmont l’ Elixir des Glaciers Fluide Merveille and Creme Merveilleuse //

This new collection is from Valmont‘s most prestigious skincare line, l’ Elixir des Glaciers. Yes, the Creme Merveilleuse is a $1,000 cream, but it’s worth the investment if you’re really serious about boosting your anti-aging skincare routine. And here is why. The collection, Essence of Gold Sturgeon, is special. It’s cutting edge, science driven, and gives incredible results. It’s powerful in that it contains rare sturgeon DNA combined with Valmont’s oligo-mineral complex and Swiss water. It has been lifting and tightening my skin. I use the Fluide Merveille as a pre-serum and go in with a tiny bit of Creme Merveilleuse, the ultimate regenerative cream. This collection is unique and definitely worth the investment! 

SISLEY PARIS LE SCULPTEUR

// Sisley Paris Le Sculpteur Intensive Contouring Care //

Movement is a big part of my life. I never stop moving. It makes me feel stronger and more alive. A little dancing and stretching does the mind and body good. But caring for my body on the inside also means caring for my body on the outside. The Sisley Paris Le Sculpteur Intensive Contouring Care helps shape the curves of my body in a natural way and I am so excited to be partnering with this iconic brand. It’s a day and night emulsion that restores the skin on the parts of my body that I work the most…my arms, abdomen, and legs, so that they feel firmer and more evenly toned. I apply Le Sculpteur with a two-step massage technique which you can find here

VENETIAN ROSE ON THE EYE AND LIP

// Em Cosmetics Heaven’s Glow Radiant Veil Blush in Venetian Rose, Illustrative Eyeliner in black, Pick Me Up Volume + Length mascara in black, and Lip Cushion Tinted Luminizer in Venetian Rose // 

You may have seen Dylana and I on the homepage of Em Cosmetics this week! Eeep! This is a brand we know, love, and use all throughout the year. The colors are absolutely beautiful. Their makeup looks really natural and fresh on the skin. I have been using their Heaven’s Glow Blush for years now! You may have seen that Faded Clementine has been my color of choice, but they just recently launched Venetian Rose and it has me smitten! It’s a pearly vintage pink that gives you that pinched, healthy, and flushed look. All good things. I use my Heaven’s Glow Blush both on my eyes and cheek for a monochromatic look when I am on the go. We are getting a peek of spring now in New York City and my mind is set on feeling extra fresh every day until summer. 

THE Estée Lauder RED LIP

// Saint Mojavi shirt dress, Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick in Fearless, The Ninon earrings //

This is a portrait of a red lip. Something so classic and elegant, it will never go out of style. Just like how a crisp white men’s shirt remains a staple in my wardrobe. This Estée Lauder matte red lip in Fearless makes me feel just that. Some of my earliest memories go back to being a little girl, trying on my mother’s Estée lipsticks. I clearly remember their scent, the deep red hues, and how powerful they made me feel. It’s funny how a shade of lipstick can completely transform the vision of oneself and let us imagine. And that is discovering our inner beauty. We’re the beholders. This has become my easy work-from-home-Zoom-meeting-sans-trousers look because why not. Who is with me?
