It's been a while since I went beauty shopping. I was at the North Park mall the other day, when I remembered I needed a new day cream for the hot weather ahead. And off I went into Nordstrom. One thing led to another, and I acquired a few necessities for the Texas summer.

Dior's Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Crème

Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Crème

For my day cream, I decided to try out Dior's Hydra Life Fresh Hydration Sorbet Crème. I always wanted to try skin care products by Dior, but I never got around purchasing any. I have used the cream for over a week now, and I am in love. It is so light on the skin, smells really nice, and keeps it hydrated all day long. My skin being very sensitive, I always fear that I may react negatively to face products. But this one have been a pure pleasure to put on. As a sorbet, it cools down my skin, and feels like putting a water gel on, before it absorbs into my skin. I saw that the sorbet can be put in the refrigerator for an hour prior to use for an added coolness. I might have to try that when it really gets hot here. Also to note, this cream can also be applied at night, making it a good investment if one doesn't want to spend money on two creams.

Hourglass's Veil Mineral Primer

Veil Mineral Primer
My other wishlist beauty product was a good primer. Hourglass is a brand I am not particularly familiar with, having only slightly heard of it once upon a time. However, after testing it in store, I got swayed into buying it. It really feels like wearing a veil of silk on your skin. I have been wearing the primer both with and without makeup. The Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer provides broad spectrum SPF 15 protection, on top of being very light on the skin. It is a pure pleasure to wear, and serves multiple purposes beyond the standard priming role. In fact it also helps with redness by evening the skin tone, and it minimizes the look of visible pores, fine lines and imperfections. Even when I wear makeup, I find this primer to make the whole experience even more enjoyable. The foundation stays put all day, and even if I sweat, the makeup doesn't come off. Even with makeup on, my skin still feels light, as if I had nothing on. I love it.

Bobbi Brown's Lip Color

Lastly, I needed a new lipstick for everyday wear. I wanted something in a pink/nude tone and opted for the Bobbi Brown's Lip Color in Sandwash Pink. The color is not too bright, but perfect for what I had it intended for. It is like wearing blush on my lips, with a pink that strives more on a coral side, without the "neon" effect of most coral-like lip colors. The lipstick itself stays put on for long time, and doesn't smudge. 

Overall, I am pretty happy with my new beauty additions. I am already coveting the Dior Hydra Life serum, as well as Derek Lam Rain Day perfume from his new collection 10 Crosby.
