As Sarah Jessica Parker once told Vanity Fair, "If you're a nice person and you work hard, you get to go shopping at Barneys. It's the decadent reward." Well, Barneys came to me... A few weeks ago as my doorman handed me all of my packages I found myself floored by the size and weight of the Barneys bag I had to carry up to my apartment. It was like Christmas morning and even though I only live three floors up, I took the elevator. It took some time to go through it and try out all of the latest launches, but here are my absolute favorites.
I'm a face mask junkie and have about 12 in my vanity, all for different reasons of course, but this one does it all. It's the miracle mask. Seriously. It's clay based and rejuvenates and refreshes tired skin, rids any imperfection from a pimple to a scab and really makes my skin look healthy and vibrant. It's well worth the $50, but since the bottle is less than two ounces, I hoard this one and don't share.
Besides being one of Angelina Jolie's favorite glosses, it's also now my absolute favorite gloss. Despite the fact that it's a whopping $32 for a lipgloss, I will purchase it when I run out. People ask me if I had lip injections when I wear it, which is weird because while it does have wheat protein for plumping purposes, it doesn't feel like a lip plumper at all. The smooth, stick free formula makes my mouth appear full with a classy shine, not goopy.
It's extremely rare that I find a perfume that I love because to be honest most of them give me headaches, but this is a delicate, feminine blend with a sensual twist that I can't get enough of lately. I also like that I'm the only one in my group of friends who wears it. Well worth the $185 price tag.
