Beautylish: The Love List

Ning Chao, Beauty Director of beautylish.com and former Senior Beauty Editor of Marie Claire, shares 6 things she's loving right now as guest editor of this week's Love List.

1. Victoria’s Secret Maxi Skirt, $39.50

Supersoft and comfy, this maxi skirt is a great alternative to jeans.

2. Fresh Sugar Passion Lip Treatment, $22.50

This tinted lip balm is a perfect sheer red that can be layered for more intensity. I don’t need a mirror to apply the balm, so it’s perfect for touching up while driving (at a red light of course!).

3. Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polish in Grunge, $18

This original griege shade is my all-time favorite neutral. It looks like a mix of gray and beige but has the slightest lavender undertone that really makes it stand out. It’s less showy than a red or dark polish and pretty much goes with everything in my closet.

4. Bond No. 9 Petits Bon Bons, $15 for 6

Bond No. 9’s Saks Fifth Avenue For Her (a delicious blend of gardenia and vanilla) is my signature scent—it smells like the perfect tuberose. I think these Bond No. 9 samples look like glitzy candies. They’re perfect for your purse or travel bag and I’ve never had one leak on me.

5. Helmut Lang Smoking Wool Blazer, $645

I don’t know why, but I can never get enough black blazers. No matter how many I already own, I just keep buying more. This is my most recent acquisition. I love how sharp and tailored the shoulders are. It’s cut a bit longer in length, so I can wear it with black leggings or skinny jeans and still look dressed up.

6. Bare Escentuals Ready SPF 15 Touch Up Veil in Tinted, $22

I use this pressed powder for contouring my face. It has a slight tint that’s more subtle than a bronzer but still gives my skin a little shadowing and definition. I love that it contains jojoba and grapeseed oil because the silky finish never cakes or cracks.
