Current luxury favorites

Those close to me know that I love to indulge myself with some luxury cosmetics once in a while. During the past few months I’ve been particularly in love with these 4 items:

1: YSL Rouge Volupté Shine lipsticks

YSL has always been one of my favourite beauty brands. I’ve always been a fan of their Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks, as well as their incredible mascara’s, nail polishes and amazing eyeshadow palettes. I recently discovered their range of Rouge Volupté Shine lipsticks and the formula is simply divine. These lipsticks consist of 60% oils, which makes them very hydrating. It’s a shiny sheer to medium formula that’s also quite buildable. I love the fact that the nourishing formula melts right into my lips after applying. They come in a variety of colours, and I happen to own 3 of them (but I’m definitely planning on buying more!).

2: Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia candle

Fun fact: I’m obsessed with scented candles. They help me relax after a long, busy day and they also add an air of luxury to my room. This English pear & freesia candle is best described as a handful of fresh ripe pears wrapped in a bouquet of flowers. This luscious scent is perfect for the upcoming fall season, and the adorable little bow on the lid makes the packaging irresistible.

3: Dior Polka Dots Manicure Kit

These fun manicure kits by Dior are my ultimate favourite at the moment! I usually wear a lot of dark nail colours, but I couldn’t resist these cute summer duo’s. The kit comes with two mini nail polishes, a dotting tool and an instruction manual. Now I know summer is basically almost over, but there are different ways to combine these shades to make them wearable throughout the year. These sets were a summer limited edition, but with a bit of luck you’ll still be able to find them online. You can see me rocking the Dior Polka Dots on my Instagram and also in my previous blog post.

4: Giorgio Armani Sì

Giorgio Armani Sì is a very elegant, musky, and feminine fragrance. The notes of blackcurrant, freesia, patchouli and vanilla blend perfectly into my skin while fading into an airy floral scent. It’s a beautiful fragrance that I’ve been enjoying during daytime and nighttime, and I love the fact that it has an incredible staying power.

Have you ever tried any of these products? And what are your current beauty favourites? Can’t wait to hear all about it!

    Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to
    create my very own site and want to find out where you got this from or
    just what the theme is named. Many thanks!

    Oh my, such lovely little luxuries! I love YSL Rouge Volupté Shine lipsticks and own a couple myself (need more, though!) but I would LOVE to get a Jo Malone candle. Maybe I’ll put it on my Christmas wishlist, haha.
