This May Not Really Be About Beauty But… Amy Schumer’s Smoky Eye

Alright, I get it, it was a jooooke but it’s six degrees away from beauty and I love Amy Schumer so I couldn’t resist. Congrats to the Inside Amy Schumer team on their well-deserved Emmy win for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, and to Amy Schumer’s makeup artist for her also soon-to-become “recently famous” status– the beauty world is blowing up with this one.

A roundup of a few new addictions…

  1. Avène antirougeurs redness relief cleansing milk: the parter in crime to my all-time favorite cleanser (Avène extremely gentle cleanser), this wash feels so silky smooth you’re wondering how they didn’t use the term “baby’s butt” in their marketing campaign
  2. Clarins Daily Energizer Cream: pop this in the fridge overnight (pro tip!), use to instantly brighten your complexion in the a.m.
  3. Nars satin lip pencil in Rikugien: the perfect neutral (not nude) that adds just a hint of color to my complexion
  4. The best smelling dry shampoo I’ve tried: I still may be a total Khlorane addict, but I received a mini Macadamia Professional dry shampoo in this month’s Birchbox and have to say it does the travel-sized trick.

Beauty at Fashion Week

I love fashion week, but it’s not hard to admit my favorite part of seeing the shows is the beauty. Clothes are great and all, but let’s get down to the most important report!

1. Rodarte has never failed us with hair clips.

An Ode to Kérastase

My first in a probably never-ending rant about French product obsessions: Kérastase.

This one is no newcomer to the U.S. markets; the L’Oréal subsidiary has been rockin’ it in the states since 1999. But it took my living abroad in Paris to notice it was one of the many commonalities of almost every French salle de bain (more on that later).  The most common form I saw it take was shampoo; I wasn’t ready to uplift my (admittedly boring) shampoo regimen just yet, so I decided to start out with a bottle of Oléo-Relax, reading about it in multiple Into The Gloss testimonials.

After promptly gushing to everyone who would listen about the serum’s restorative and smoothing properties that I never felt that I got from any other product, I decided to jump onto the shampoo bandwagon with their Bain Divalent shampoo for oily roots and dry ends. I’m not sure how much it’s helped with dry ends, but in the way of oily roots it’s the best I’ve found so far.

I’m almost out of the shampoo about 4 months in, so I’m admittedly excited to try a new product (or two) as soon as the need arises… or my click-happy online shopping habit starts up again, whichever comes first.
