There is nothing more relaxing to me than online window shopping! I have filled up my cart on the Saks 5th Avenue website many times over, and all that’s keeping me from checking out is my lack of thousands of dollars. If I won the lottery tomorrow, here are the first products I would buy.
La Mer is the ultimate in skincare, and there’s nothing more quintessentially chic than applying a layer of Soft Cream before makeup. This face cream is always popping up in the best Top Shelf posts from Into The Gloss, and whenever I see the little white bottle I know whoever is using it must have amazing skin. When I’m older and my age starts to show, you can bet I will spend my last dime on this stuff.
My obsession with owning this essence started after I began reading the blog She’s In The Glow. Annie from said blog is always raving about this stuff, and she is very skincare conscious. Most people that have added this to their routine have said that it completely changed their face for the better. The main draw of this product is the ingredient pitera, which is full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Pitera is great for repairing damaged skin and keeping everything looking young and healthy!
The words ‘caviar’ and ‘luxe’ are what always catch my eye with this mask. I was first introduced to La Prairie through their make up line, but lord knows I will never spend 200 bucks on an ounce of foundation. I would, however, consider shelling out cash for something that works while I sleep. Sleep is the most important tool in skincare, and something that seems to work best with sleep is worth the money. Maybe I don’t need this now, but 20 years from now I might just have to spend the hundreds.
Sisley-Paris is an up and comer on the beauty radar, and I have been dying to try anything from the floral-centric line. Toner is very important for my skin because after I wash it, it can feel dry and stripped. That’s why I always add this toning lotion to my cart online. Everything from the bottle to the labeling to the supposed lovely scent is appealing to me.
I have heard nothing but amazing things about this concealer. I am not huge fan of stick concealers because they tend to be more thick and drying, but the reviews on this seem to set it apart. I have read reviews of people using this as a foundation because it just feels so lightweight and natural on the skin. Concealer is a very specific, difficult product to perfect, and it would seem that Clé de Peau Beauté has done just that.
There is a lion face in the compact. That is all that needs to be said. Just look at it.
I am usually pretty apprehensive on any beauty products that boast things like ‘gold flecks’ and ‘diamond dust.’ This is the one exception. These gold flakes seem to be small enough not to look odd and chunky on the skin. If there is one thing Guerlain does well, it’s presentation. I would spend the money just to have the beautiful packaging all over my vanity.
The reviews are in on this face powder, and they say that this is revolutionary. Dry skinned and oily skinned girls united online to say that this was the best face powder they had ever tried. I was never really interested in the popular liquid version of this foundation, but I have been dying to try this compact. A face powder that doesn’t looked caked on? Sign me up.
I want to try everything from Byredo, from perfume to hand cream. Gypsy Water is probably their most well known fragrance. Any perfume that combines Sandalwood, Vanilla and Bergamot is perfect for me, and I need to get my hands on it. I’m thinking of asking/begging for this little bottle for my birthday.
Tom Ford is known for glamour at a high price tag, and his line of perfume is no exception. Tiny bottles for $225? Seems kind of crazy, so obviously I need it. If I were to ever get one of the scents, I would choose Venetian Bergamot because I am obsessed with all things bergamot.
