La Mer The Foundation Brush

I usually use my beautyblender sponge when applying makeup, but I'm liking this swank foundation brush. Not because it's swank but because it works pretty well. I only have to use a tiny bit of foundation with it, which is always a plus. Cakey is not hot. Spend a quick $40. 

NARS Orgasm Illuminator

After a busy couple of weeks (Fashion Week, work stuff, a trip), I've wholly neglected this little endeavor, so get ready to read about more shit I got. Received this illuminator in NARS' cult-y Orgasm shade and I haven't properly tried it yet. Actually, I slathered some on in a rush over my makeup and looked like a server from Lucky Chengs so obvz I need to play around with it a tad more. I think mixing a drop with foundation might do the trick.  Check it.

Totally Toned Arms: Get Michelle Obama Arms in 21 Days

I'm not someone that actively pursues exercise, but I'd totes sweat a little for better arms. Trainer Rylan Duggan's book claims we all can rock M'Obama arms after just three weeks, with minimal equipment. I only flipped through it, but I'll test out some of his techniques. One day. Incidentally, I wonder how the first lady feels about being a marketing tool adjective for fit arms.  Tone up.

Estée Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisturizer

Just got back from a trip to a climate where the sun is deceptively strong and I was in desperate need of some good, solid moisture to help wrangle the "tan" (read: burn) I somehow acquired, despite my steadfast use of SPF. And voila, this new Estée Lauder moisturizer materialized at my desk. According to the brand, using this cream will strengthen your skin's moisture barrier over time with something called Sustainable Moisture Complex. There's also a lot of other technical mumbo jumbo involved, but I won't get started. I tried it, I liked it. E.O.S. (End O' Story). Read all about it.
