January Beauty Obsessions

Hello everyone! Man, 2018 is off to a quick start. How is it the last day of January already? Next week I’m heading out to NYC for a bit to catch some NYFW shows, then visiting some family before coming back. As I type this it’s 85 degrees outside so per usual, here I am again welcoming cooler weather. I just hope there’s not a blizzard next week because I don’t really want to attend a show in snow boots.

I’m trying to get better about posting beauty products, so I thought a fun thing for 2018 would be to create monthly posts showcasing my favorites in a reoccurring “Beauty Obsessions” post. I am also ALWAYS into recommendations so please send over your makeup, hair, and skin care faves!

So onto the post! Her are my beauty obsessions for January…

My Current Beauty Obsessions | Charmed by Camille

Sarah Jessica Parker Stash Unspoken – If you’ve been following me then you know that I have the other SJP Beauty fragrance, Stash. Stash Unspoken is a little lighter and fresher than it’s counterpart. I’m normally not into anything too floral but this has my favorite flower (peony) missed in with peppercorn and sandalwood. It’s a really unique scent.

Estee Lauder X Victoria Beckham Skin Perfecting Powder – True story, this has been sitting in my beauty drawer for a while but I haven’t had time to try it until recently. Oh my god. How did I ever live without this and why did I not try it sooner? You know that Snapchat/Instagram filter that kind of glazes over your face to give a nice soft glow and blurry effect? I don’t know how to describe the effect of this lightweight powder other than that. It’s basically a filter. Enough Said.

NYX Powder Puff Lippie in Squad Goals This is the perfect dark mauve shade if you’re looking for a drugstore brand matte lipstick. Sometimes these shades never look right with my olive skin but it’s a similar shade to my natural lip color, so it just kind of enhances it a bit. It utilizes a cushion applicator and goes on almost like a mousse before it dries. It may possible that I also love this shade because of its name. *shrugs shoulders*

Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Princess – Okay, fine. I have a weakness for makeup with cute names. How fun of a job would that be, to name lipstick or nail polish colors? Anyway, Dior makeup is always a fun splurge and I love these glosses because of the high shine, without being sticky at all. This one is a pink with purple undertones in the shimmer (aka a trick to make teeth look whiter).

Kevyn Aucoin Exotique Diamond Eye Gloss in Moonlight – In my opinion, I saved the best for last on this post. This is my favorite because this is a totally new form of product for me. Instead of a traditional shimmer eye shadow, this is literally a gloss for your lids. Think very sparkly Vaseline. A little goes a long way, and you can wear it alone or on top of eye shadow. FUN! I dab a bit of this right below my brows as a highlight, or in the inner corners of my eyes to brighten up that area. To me the sparkle is a very effortless, “I woke up like this” with a killer high shine finish.
