BELLE SPOTLIGHT: JULY BEAUTY WISH LIST


1. TOM FORD NOIR ABSOLUTE FOR EYES: I have an intense love for all things Tom Ford and this black gel formula eye liner is another product on my wish list. It can be used with a thin brush along the lash line as a dramatic liner or swept over the entire lid for an intense smokey eye. 

2. CLE DE PEAU BEAUTE CONCEALER: This is considered a holy grail concealer by many in the  beauty and fashion industry. I've been using it for a few months and it really is amazing. While I don't use it for under my eyes, it perfectly conceals any imperfections on my skin and has tremendous lasting power. 

3. CHANTECAILLE NANO GOLD ENERGIZING EYE SERUM: This eye serum contains a cocktail of collagen builders, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Delivered in a unique roller ball applicator that aids in depuffing, the serum contains 24 karat gold and claims to smooth out existing lines and prevent new ones from forming. It also contains Raspberry and Tomato stem cells and a peptdic complex (i.e. powerful anti-oxidants that also extend cellular longevity, increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, resulting in reduced dark circles and puffiness). 

4. LIVING PROOF PRIME STYLE EXTENDER: Jordana is a huge fan of the Living Proof line and especially raves about the Prime Style Extender. Touted as a weightless hairstyling primer that protects and extends the life of your style, it's free of parabens, sulfates and synthetic dyes. The fact that most products in the line are free of silicon is another reason why it's on the top of my 'must-try' list. 

5. GIORGIO ARMANI 'EYES TO KILL' PALETTE IN BLUSH: I've heard so many great things about Giorgio Armani makeup. This palette is so pretty and has 4 beautiful, very wearable colours. 

6. CHANEL SUBLIMAGE LA CREME - TEXTURE SUPRÉME: Julia Restoin Roitfeld talked about using this moisturizer in a video she did on Into The Gloss. Chanel claims it's a skincare product that goes beyond anti-aging. Utilizing the fruit and flower of Vanilla from Madagascar, the cream claims to make the complexion more radiant and even, firm the facial contours, smooth and tone the face and make skin glow. Those are pretty extreme claims but I'm definitely intrigued.

7. STILA COLOR BALM LIPSTICK IN FUCHSIA: This is another product recommended by Jordana. She bought this fuchsia colour on our trip to NY and has been wearing it ever since. It's such a fun colour for Summer and offers up the moisturizing benefits of a balm while having lipstick worthy colour.

  2. Oh and the Armani palettes are amazing. I have one that is all neutrals and use it regularly. Very pigmented and smooth to apply.
