This week we had a special visitor at Birchbox HQ: our Birchbox France editorial director, Mathilde! We directed the chic Parisian to our favorite spots (including the Ace Hotel and ABC Kitchen) and, in return, asked her about her latest obsessions (beauty and otherwise). This is what’s topping her must list.
1. Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50+: I love this product because it’s a serious moisturizer. It doesn’t feel too heavy or leave a white residue, so I use it everyday. It smells good, too—really light and clean.
2. Bold Lips: This look is quite easy to do, and all the girls in the French office are trying it more and more. If they aren’t wearing too much makeup, they’ll just do mascara and a really bold lip. Lately they’ve been wearing the LAQA & Co Fat Lip Pencils and the ModelCo lipsticks.
3. Rooftop parties: You’ve had this in New York for awhile, but we didn’t have this concept in Paris until now. This summer it seemed like every restaurant that opened is on a rooftop—and they all have long waiting lists to get in!
