Lioele Silky Highlighter BB Touch – This sizable brush-tipped pen, acquired through a Korean vendor on eBay, is a gem. Even as jaded highlighted users, we’re impressed with its ability to add a natural glow to cheekbones. Exercise caution, though: the clip-tip tends to dispense an unnecessarily generous amount of product.

Ardency Inn Punker Eyeliner – The lovely Cassie at Ruggeri passed this beauty on to us a while ago, but somehow we’re only now getting on to giving it a proper test drive. This fool-proof felt-tip liner goes on jet black and lasts all day long.

Amarte Daily ExfoliPowder – Last week we dished on Korean luxury brand Amarte’s gorgeous BB cream. At the other end of the day, though? We cleanse with this gently exfoliating dry powder (not unlike Tatcha’s rice enzyme cleanser) and bask in the softness of our skin the next day.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Glossy Stain in Rose Pastelle – YSL’s much-lauded Glossy Stains are a must-have in our arsenal. The third addition to our collection is #18, Rose Pastelle. This milky, cool pink is beautifully sparkle-free and lends lips a dewy, pale finish that’s positively 60s.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Marjella – On the opposite end of the lip product spectrum, this rich garnet shade offers full coverage in just one swipe, is non-drying, and stains impressively all day long. We recommend pairing with a lip liner to avoid feathering.

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation – Even though the palest shade, B10 is ever so slightly too dark for our skin, we’ve been loving this weightless formula and its satin finish.

Tend Skin – If you remove hair from any part of your person, we’re fairly sure you need some Tend Skin. This cult classic is complete with delightfully bad packaging, and a bit pricey at first glance. But when applied to dry skin post-hair removal of any kind? We were stunned to find our skin absent of redness and ingrown hairs. Truly a miracle product.

Sephora Pro Angled Contour Brush #75 – This was an impulse buy during Sephora’s 15% Chic Week discount at the end of April, and we regret nothing. It blends both cream and dry products beautifully. We’re particularly fond of pairing it with our Too Faced Milk Chocolate Bronzer for naturally sun-kissed looking contours.

Revlon ColorStay Nail Polish in Bare Bones – Maybe it’s just the name, but this khaki polish is surprising edgy, particularly when paired with a fistful of rings. It’s best described as a khaki shade, but bears to resemblance to your dad’s Dockers—we promise.
