Black is my happy place. Im a New Yorker – through and through. I started wearing lots of black in my tweens when I began to flex my fashion muscles due to a few little things called allowance, birthday money, and babysitting cash. Until then, my mother refused to buy me any all black items of clothing because, in her words, ‘black is not for children.’
Fast forward to my adult life, and like most women, black is the new black. On the majority days of my week, I am in black head to toe. Gray is my accent color. (Sorry Mom – hope I’m not out of the will for this…)
Here are a few of my favorite black beauty products.
Tom Ford Black Orchid Eau de Toilette ($135) Seductive and memorable, Black Orchid is one of the classic scents, and oh that gorgeous bottle…
Revision Skincare Black Mask ($30) An intensive jet black mask that purges pores and gets rid of sebum and debris for clearer, smoother skin. Contains natural earth clays to purify. Great for oily skin or just any skin in need of a deep cleanse.
Artis® Brush – Fluenta Collection ($40-$450) Artis is arguably the most decadent and stunning makeup brush collection on the planet. The brushes were created with their trademarked CosmeFibre® technology and cool ergonomic handles that will make a pro out of a novice in no time. The Fluenta Collection is black and chrome and totally gorgeous. I like the Artis® Fluenta Oval 10 ($95) which is large enough to cover your whole face and areas of the body that need a little camouflage and contouring too.
Archipelago Black Forest Soy Candle ($31.50) The look of this candle is elegant and fits in with any decor, and it burns for forever. I have a few of these now scattered around my apartment. The scent is a little woodsy with aromatherapy essential oils and a blend of black currant, ebony wood and douglas fir.
NUDESTIX Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil ($24) – 7 shades of wonderful, this lip crayon doubles for cheeks and comes in their signature NUDESTIX black tin that we can’t get enough of. I’m crazy about Entice, but all the nudes are beautifully wearable. If you’re into subtle reds and berries, NUDESTIX has you covered too. Super long wearing, easily portable, no brainer beauty.
