BeautyEditor’s Vanity: May 2012

ONE. Lancome Bienfait Aqua Vital Cream — As the weather gets warmer, I can’t get enough of lightweight moisturizers — and this one fits the bill perfectly. It’s moisturizing and dries quickly…and leaves your skin with a “fresh” feeling.

TWO. Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Runway Coral — This color was developed by Jenna Menard, Clinique’s Global Color Artist, for Karen Walker’s SS12 runway show…and it’s already selling out quick. I never really thought I could wear a coral lipstick – most are too bright, too orange or too pink. The color is perfection, and has a lovely creamy texture, too.

THREE. Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes — The first thing I noticed about this mascara is that it has a uniquely floral scent – so fun! As a fair warning, application with this wand takes some practice if you don’t want it to flake or clump — but it’s worth it since it leaves behind flirty lashes.

FOUR. Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance — I am obsessed with this fragrance!!! The key notes are a mix of jasmine, mandarin and sea spray and makes me feel like I’m heading off to a tropical beach vacation in Capri (instead of the office). I can tell that I will be wearing this fragrance all summer long.

FIVE. Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF25 — Beauty balms are the latest “it” product in moisturization, and this one made it into my daily routine. The texture is thick but absorbs very quickly and leaves skin dewy. ┬áJust a little bit will go a long way, so this moisturizer will last a long time for its $90 price tag.
