Lazy Girl Approved: Annabelle Perfect Cream Blush & Highlight Sticks

Lazy Girl Approved highlights long-lasting, goof-proof, fuss-free products that can fit into the most minimalist of regimens. If you consider yourself a low-maintenance beauty lover, these product reviews are for you!

Annabelle Perfect Cream Blush and Highlight Sticks detail shot of product texture and colour

Seriously, what is more goof-proof and fuss-free than drawing on your face with a giant crayon and blending with fingertips? So portable, so easy, and best of all, no makeup brushes to wash. When I first glimpsed the Annabelle Perfect Cream Blush ($9.99 at London Drugs) and Annabelle Perfect Cream Highlight ($9.99 at London Drugs) at last year's London Drugs #LDBeauty preview, I knew they were automatically Lazy Girl Approved, and at less than $10 a pop, they're also true Drugstore Delights.


My Transitional Skincare Faves

Natural and free-from skincare products perfect for the transition from summer to fall, featuring cbeauty, Bioderma, Tata Harper, Skin Gym, and ILIA.

Although summer isn't technically over, things have already taken a turn for the autumnal in Vancouver. I spent the rainy weekend cleaning and making a big batch of turkey and white bean chili, and when I wasn't #adulting, I was cozied up with blankets and Netflix and countless mugs of hot tea. Skincare-wise, my routine is in flux as I transition from summer to fall. While I still like cool, light products on warmer days, I'm also craving products that are richer in texture, indulgent, soothing, perfect for self-care evenings...or all of the above. Here's what I'm loving lately.
