❧❦ 5 Things I'm Loving Right Now ❦❧


I never got around to filming an April Favorites video, but I just had to share some of my favorite things right now:

Balenciaga Pencil in Raisin - 2009


The perfect, compact little makeup bag that fits just the right amount of makeup.  Check out the latest versions at Balenciaga.

Betsey Johnson's It's My Pink nail color - Sephora by OPI  

It's a gorgeous, ripe, berry-pink that is scented with her Too Too fragrance. It lasted 4 days without chipping (no top coat). After wearing this for 5 days straight  I could still smell the fragrance!  

It is a limited edition, so be sure to pick one up now.  It's a Sephora exclusive.

Black 15in1 Miracle Hair Treatment 

The company claims it does all of the following: 
- adds shine
- softens and smoothes
- detangles
- prevents frizz and fly-aways
- moisturizes
- protects against humidity
- repairs dry
- damaged hair
- protects against heat styling
- enhances natural body
- seals and protects hair color
- protects from UV light
- strengthens hair
- adds volume
- soothes dry scalp

While I can't speak for all of the above (like the dry scalp claim), it has done pretty much everything else for me.  The real test was when I used the product on my newly colored hair and spent hours swimming in the ocean.  It really did protect my color.

It has now become a staple in my morning beauty routine, and even after several weeks of use find I have far less color fading than I've had in the past.  

Available here.

*Antipodes Deliverance Kowhai Flower Hand Cream

I love the soothing, silky, texture of this hand cream that contains avocado oil.  Non-greasy, instead it feels like you are feeding your skin.  It's on my desk at work, and I reach for it several times a day.  It's almost finished, and I'll have to replenish it soon.  It smells faintly of tonka beans and an orange scent that lingers.  A little goes a long way.  

Available at Hip Apotheca.

Chembur by Byredo 

This is a sophisticated, spicy unisex fragrance that reminds me of being in a room filled with carved wood panelling, covered in a rich patina that comes with age, where incense has been burning.  

It was inspired by the home town of founder Ben Gorham's mother in the outskirts of Mumbai, evoking memories of a Hindu temple. It is a pungent, haunting fragrance that leaves the skin scented with ginger, musk and lemon.

Available here.

Until next time,
- The Sassi Wench

*This hand cream was sent to me by Hip Apotheca for review. The honest opinions expressed are completely my own.
