Vicki’s February Beauty Faves

March 21, 2024

Did February breeze by like a whisper, or was it just me? Perhaps it was the anticipation of spring just around the corner. Whatever the reason, February felt like a gentle embrace rather than a chilly embrace of winter. And amidst the cozy vibes, I stumbled upon a treasure trove of beauty favorites that added a touch of sparkle to my routine. —Vicki Duong

The Lifter Plump Gloss ($18) comes in a range of shades to suit every mood and occasion, ensuring you’ll always find the perfect match for your look. Plus the addition of chili pepper infused into formula really pumps up the volume. Note: this formula is SPICY.

The ultra-precise applicator allows for effortless application, whether you’re aiming for a subtle wash of colour or a bold, metallic statement.

New from Clarins and crafted with the expertise and innovation the brand is renowned for, the Precious La Mousse Douce Nettoyante ($130) boasts a velvety soft texture that delicately purifies the skin without causing irritation.
