Luxe Makeup Look

I love adding a bit of “luxe” into my life.  For as long as I can remember I have had an affinity for beautiful products. Sometimes it’s a pair of shoes to elevate a 2nd hand outfit and sometimes it’s a lovely luxe makeup item to give a girl a bit of posh & shine!! Whether it’s fashion, design, or beauty I pretty much apply the same principle of sprinkling in something luxe here and there to elevate any look or experience. 

Luxe Makeup LookThe Benefits of Luxe Makeup

When it comes to makeup specifically, I find so many benefits to paying a little extra for luxe. Some of the key benefits to luxe makeup products are:

  • Beautiful packaging
  • Better Pigmentation
  • Longer lasting / High performance
  • Added  Quality Ingredients
  • Better Product Applicators

Take for example my latest fall favorite luxe products, YSL Volupte Shine Lipstick Balm and Hourglass™ Vanish Airbrush Concealer.

Luxe MakeupWhy I Love Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick Balm  in color 80 Chili Tunique – Medium Spice

  • I’ve been raving about YSL’s lip balm for years. This balm’s long-lasting color goes on smooth and the warm red is perfect for Fall.
  • I LOVE the detail on the tube; it’s the kind of packaging that you want to leave out on your vanity. The designer in me truly appreciates the level of detail & thought that goes into product design.  Naturally, if the packaging has wooed me then what’s inside literally has me falling in love.
  • The weight of the tube feels special, if that even makes sense.  But yeah, I love the feel of the tube in my hand.
  • With added hyaluronic acid, this balm provides long lasting hydration while the antioxidants and macadamia butter protect and condition my lips.
  • The balm is oil-infused with six natural oils and free from parabens and phthalates. 
  • Like each time I use the item I am reconnected to that heightened sense of pleasure it gives me, basically I feel cute as hell!! LOL

Why I Love Hourglass Vanish™ Airbrush Concealer

  • The moment this product launched at the beginning of 2020 I wanted to try it.  All the beauty insiders were raving about it. Well let’s just say it did not disappoint. This concealer provides the BEST full coverage.
  • I love that a little goes a long way. 
  • The texture is light & creamy, which is great because it moves with my eyes.  It doesn’t sink into my fine lines, rather the texture actually blurs them. SO A-mazing.
  • It’s free from the ingredients I avoid like sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and mineral oil.

    I love your makeup technique, you have beautiful skin so a little goes a long way with you. I miss applying some type of makeup daily, when I was working in the office. Now that Im working from home because of Covid I rarely get the chance to wear makeup anymore. My main focus though is on trying to maintain healthy looking skin though. At 49 years of age soon to be approaching 50 in 3 months I mainly try to focus on maintaining youthful skin. Most people dont believe that I am 49 years old, and I have been told by people who have known me for year that it seem as though I never age.
