When it comes to obsessing over a few items my closet does mini shifts but the above items are apart of my musts whether you're running to events, shoots, segments or just prepping for the upcoming holiday season! Since Fashion Week, some of these have been apart of my beauty arsenal and one item I just received yesterday but am definitely drooling over it in under 24 hours!
NP Set (available at Target) is a must in my world of lip gloss. After going to the presentation prior to New York Fashion Week and meeting Napoleon himself, I am convinced that he has a number of hues within the pinky spectrum to make you look amazing while leaving in so many enriching nutrients that you don't have to worry about stripping your lips! Yesterday as I ran out the door, my doorman let me know that a little bag was waiting for me and thankfully I paused as L'Occitane just sent me their lip balms. Now I have been a fan of their traditional hand creams for years and I think it makes awesome gifts whether it's a thank you or you're just being a proper house guest but starting Oct 12th, you can get their limited edition "In the Patterns and Scents of Africa" which has Bogolan packaging designs that are inspired by traditional fabrics of the villages. In addition to the lip balms (including 10% shea), there are shea butters in hand and body creams. The three scents are derived from 3 African flowers: Desert Rose from Morocco (fruity and zesty), Hibiscus from Egypt (sensual and sunny) and Cocoa Flower from the Ivory Coast (warm with that hint of cacao).
During NYFW, Kitten Lounge celebrated its 4th Anniversary at a party at Shobha and one of our generous sponsors was Birchbox which included their Sept box (items curated in conjunction with Scoop NYC. Within this curation, they included Bliss' Blood Orange and White Pepper Hand Cream which is perfect for fitting within your purse. Everyone knows that I am obsessed over blood orange and I love the thick nourishing feel of this cream while being in one of my favorite scents. Finally, Caswell-Massey has been a mainstay in my travels as I carry the packets of their Cucumber Eye Pads with me. But if you wish to stock up or have a little love on your vanity, they also have this fab jar, These are soothing as the real cucumbers without having to cut them into the thin sheets. Simply take them out and place them on your eyes and be transported to calm.
