The most stressful part of leaving the house for an event is trying to cram everything you might need into one credit card-sized clutch. Once you’ve accounted for your phone, keys and rollerball fragrance, there’s limited space left for complexion-saving touchups (oily-skin friends, we’re looking at you).
While setting sprays are great for holding makeup in place generally, once the sun comes out, us sweaters can say sayonara to our glam. However, as we’ve seen with her skin care routine (which she admittedly shares with her husband), Kerry Washington is quite the savvy shopper when it comes to her beauty collection. Now she’s back with a space-saving, affordable, multi-use product that lets you touch up your cheeks, eyes, and lips on the go.
Heading to this year’s SAG Awards, Kerry gave her Instagram followers an inside look at her purse, and in addition to the (very necessary) chocolate bar and energy drink combo stored inside, one drugstore product caught our attention. Speaking of the recently released Neutrogena Hydro-Boost Multi-Purpose Balm (which as of this moment isn’t available in Australia), Kerry gushed, “this is incredible because it does so many things. It’s a touch-up colour pigment for my lips, my eyes and my cheeks.”
What makes it most attractive, however, may be the fact that it is so compact. “It saves so much space in my purse and I love it,” the Little Fires Everywhere actress noted.
So while we patiently wait for Neutrogena’s universally flattering creamy stick to hit our shores, in the meantime if you like the sound of a 3-in-1 purse-friendly makeup product, bh recommends:
ILIA Multistick, $51 at MECCA
NUDESTIX Nudies Matte All Over Face Color Blush & Bronze, $49 at Sephora
