Winter 2020 beauty bag

New in my winter 2020 beauty bag from top left: Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask  / Garnier Water Rose gel / Glossier Generation G sheer matter lipstick (color shown is “Cake” I have previously purchased in “Like” love this lipstick!)/ Glossier Boy Brow / Glossier Lidstar / black face towel by Chanel / Glossier Futuredew / Glossier Super Bounce  / Glossier facial cleanser / Garnier water rose moisturizer cream /

New year, new beauty! As you know, I am a huge fan of Garnier’s products, so when they sent me a fw new products for the new year, I was excited! If you have been following, you may remember my daughter recently introduced me to Glossier. When they reached out to see if I would like to try a few new products for the new year, I jumped at the chance! And yes, my daughter keeps trying to steal my new Glossier products from my beauty bag! haha

In the fall season, I was wearing Glossier’s Generation G sheer matte lipstick in “Like” which I purchased when my daughter went on a Glossier shopping spree. For winter, I have added “Cake” to my beauty bag which is a little bit darker, but still in line with my love for lighter pink hues. This is a great color!

The winter season causes dry skin due to indoor heaters, and less humidity in the air outside. I love adding moisture with Garnier’s water rose cream.  I use this cream at night since I wear spf during the day. It adds the moisture I need in my skin which has been robbed by winter!

Sometimes moisture cream alone cannot repair dry skin; especially for those of us who are GenX, and are experiencing maturing skin. I love Glossier’s Superbounce which contains hyaluronic acid and reinvigorates my skin. I’m kind of addicted to it!!

You might be wondering why my new face towel is so chi-chi. haha, well, it goes on my face. So while my bath towels might be from more affordable brands, the towel I use to wash my face needs to be soft, luxurious, and something which does not contribute to wrinkles. So yes, it’s Chanel.

It’s here! You know I love it when the new Chanel nail polish colors come out! The spring 2020 beauty collection from Chanel has two beautiful hues for the upcoming warm weather season; and I am excited about it!

There is a classic spring pink named Chanel Daydream, which evokes a spring picnic vibe. It’s a vibrant, chic pink which is perfect for understated nails this spring 2020 season. Chanel also created a fun, dark mauve with purple undertones named Chanel Mirage. If you are looking for a more edgy spring nail polish color, this is the hue for you!

So, without further ado, here are the two nail polish colors from Chanel’s spring 2020 beauty collection!

This is my favorite hue in the spring nail polish collection. It offers a warm weather vibe while still remaining fresh and new. Mirage by Chanel also plays well with spring 2020’s color palette and “Classic Blue,” the color of 2020. Since I love wearing shades of blue, this is the perfect hue to compliment a neutral and blue wardrobe this spring season. Loving it!

If you love a classic nail, Chanel Daydream is the spring color you have been literally “daydreaming” about! This is a great nail color if you work in a professional environment, or if you prefer to keep your personal style timeless. It’s also understated and feminine, love that! I plan to wear it this spring when I need a more toned down look, or I have business meetings in a professional environment.
