I'm starting to adopt products that enhance what I have naturally rather than create artificial results, hence, I present to you my latest discoveries: RMS Beauty's Un Cover-up and Serge Lutens' Cellophane Cils Mascara. These are my two must-have products for looking like a fresher and more awake version of myself.
After doing some research on organic and natural beauty products, I've found that the ones by RMS Beauty are consistently given high ratings. Renowned makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift's beauty line uses raw, food grade ingredients in their natural state. This means that all of the enzymes, vitamins and healing properties stay intact which makes it even more appealing. I use the Un Cover-Up in #33 and dab it over my undereye circles. What I like about this product is that it also brightens up my eye area and the color seamlessly melts into my skin. It makes my skin look moisturized and slightly dewey–never cakey! I also love the little frosted glass pot container which fits perfectly into my bag.
As a forewarning, I must confess that Serge Lutens' Cellophane Cils Mascara is a bit of a splurge at $65 a pop, which explains why I've tried this mascara on numerous times at Violet Grey and Barneys but hadn't been able to bite the bullet and actually purchase it. When my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for Christmas this past year, I immediately answered: "This really, really amazing mascara by Serge Lutens!" He couldn't understand why I'd ask for a tube of mascara until he realized its price tag. How can I describe it? Well, it has a unique, sheer glossy black formula with tiny fibers that give your lashes length and definition, but not overtly so like all of the other dramatic mascaras on the market. Think about how your lashes look wet and pretty after you step out of the shower–that's the effect that this mascara gives you. I love that it doesn't look like you're wearing any mascara at all.
Here's a pic of me with both of them on:
If you ever come across either of these items, give them a try. They've definitely got the SGD stamp of approval!
