Sophia's Picks: Luxury Products and Lines Worth Buying!

Oribe 

   Probably my newest addiction to put it simply. I cannot put into words how great these products are! It is very rare for me to find a line that is amazing across the board, these products exceed my expectations every time I use them! My favorite products from the line would have to be the heat styling spray and anti-humidity spray. With these two products alone, I know my styles will stay on my client! 

 

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer 

   Anyone who knows me has heard my rave reviews of this bronzer. Here is a funny story behind my discovery of this product. When I was about 11 years old, I was watching "The Simple Life" starring Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. I saw that Nicole had this gorgeous compact she was using to touch up her face with and I was so intrigued as to what it was. After stalking the internet, I came across it on Sephora's website. At that point I basically spent all my money I had on this bronzer! No joke, it was amazing and lived up to the reviews it had from numerous people. No other bronzer I have used has compared to the quality and pigmentation of these. I've owned shades 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 07 and 08; almost the whole line! It has been a staple in my personal and professional kit for a very long time now. If you are going to purchase anything I write about in this blog, make sure this is at the top of your list!

 

Harry Josh Pro Tools

   I love everything about Harry Josh's line! His irons are absolutely mind blowing, and the dryer is a long-time favorite amongst many professionals and consumers. The mint green color is too cute to pass up, but the performance of the tools is what suckered me in. The Marcel Iron has a removable clamp to turn it into  a wand and has a mechanism inside to keep the barrel's temperature even at all times if it is open, closed or no clamp. For an iron to maintain perfect heat throughout use is a huge deal. Consistent heat won't lead to hot spots and uneven application of the heat to the hair. This minimizes damage to the hair! Let's not forget how awesome his carbon comb is, this comb means business. I never have to worry that it is going to snap or melt when I'm in the middle of a hair style!

Tom Ford Soleil Collection 2016

Tom Ford Soleil Collection 2016

   Tom Ford is my ultimate guilty pleasure. It is impossible to control myself when I walk past the counter at Neiman Marcus!!! I feel that the products do live up to the hype, especially their eyeshadows. I'm a huge fan of their Cream and Powder Eye Color duos from their 2016 Soleil Collection. It contains a gorgeous metallic cream shadow and a sparkling, shimmering powder shadow. Both on their own look beautiful, but together they are truly stunning! Last year they were released as well, but clearly they were in such high demand they brought them back again! However, I'm not too sure if they have been released in previous years. Their eyeshadow quads, Shade and Illuminate Duet, and lipsticks are some of my other top picks. I plan on buying their Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil, it looks absolutely divine on the skin and the scent is amazing! I completely condone spending all of your money on this brand, it is truly addicting.
