If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked model Delilah Belle Hamlin — who partnered with Motorola for the launch of its new Razr phone — about the lip mask, self-help books, and white sneakers she can’t live without.
You can basically pair Air Force 1’s with anything — with a dress, with jeans. I have six pairs. They give me a bit of height, which is incredible. I used to think it was cool when they’d get really dirty, I liked that vibe. Now I like to keep them super clean. I get a new pair whenever they start to get dirty.
My agent actually told me about this mask. I travel a lot, was breaking out a ton, and he said, “You should try this, everyone’s been talking about it.” It’s very purifying. My skin is more hydrated, and more glow-y and awake. I have less breakouts. When I’m traveling, I’ll use it after I get off the plane, when I get to the hotel or apartment.
This mask I actually use on the plane. It’s basically a hydrating mask. I was flying to London a lot on an 11-hour flight, and I didn’t want my skin getting too dry and dirty, so I just popped this mask on. Sometimes I fall asleep with it on. It’s great for planes because it’s a sheet mask, so you don’t have to rub anything in and you don’t have to touch your face.
It’s just so comfortable. I normally pack a little bag for the plane, and it includes this and the pillow from my bed. Barefoot Dreams is my favorite, I have a robe from them, and I have their socks. My mom bought me the shawl for Christmas one year. And then my dad got me the robe for another Christmas. The shawl is my mom’s favorite gift to give. I’m like, “Mom, I really need one this year, please. It’s all I want for Christmas.”
My mom gave me The Secret when I was younger. It’s definitely one of my favorites, but I also love The Power of Positive Thinking. My dad gave me that one. I still struggle with anxiety and depression, but growing up, I felt a little bit lost and hopeless. There wasn’t anything that would help me, because it was just too overpowering. But reading these books helped me realize that people had gone through similar things and thought similar thoughts, while also giving me strategies to cope with anxiety and depression. I do think it takes more than just strategies to cope with all the feelings, but the books still helped me. They taught me how to think and what to do when I’m in a certain situation, or feeling a certain way.
I keep buying this because I use it almost every day. If I feel any dryness in my hair, I’ll put it on to hydrate. And if I want to put my hair in a low bun and make it sleek, this makes it super easy. Honestly, sometimes in the summer, I’ll tan with it on, too. It smells like a yummy rose. Like a really yummy rose.
For every occasion — my birthday, or any time I might get a gift — I just want Diptyque candles. I’m obsessed with so many of them, but Tuberose is my absolute favorite. We go through these pretty quick in my house. It’s really hard to describe the scent. It’s just … good. It smells homey.
I love Beats Headphones because they’re like, headphones, and I want people to see when I’m listening to something, so they know I’m busy. I like that they’re wireless. And they’re sleek and chic. I’m listening to a lot of different things right now. A lot of Billie Eilish, her old stuff and some of her new stuff. I’ve also been listening to H.E.R., Ben Howard, The XX, and James Vincent McMorrow. They’re all very different styles of music, but I kind of just play whatever I’m feeling.
So again, I stole this from my sister. It has such a good smell. I put it on after the shower and it’s like perfume. It stays on and makes everything smell good. When I’m walking with someone, they’re like, ‘Ooooh, Delilah, what is that?’ And I’m like, “It’s Bum Bum Cream.” It makes my skin feel great and just smells so good. Clearly, I’m very into smells.
My first phone was a matte-black Razr. I was so excited about it, I felt so cool. So this year, when I found out that Motorola was coming out with a new one, I got so excited. It’s a touch screen, but it’s still like a flip phone, so it’s very innovative. One of the things that I love about it is that it’s very portable. It’s easy to stick in your purse, and it doesn’t take up too much room. But then you can open it up, and it turns into a big touch screen phone, which I also love.
[Editor’s note: Walmart is offering the Razr to Verizon customers as part of an upgrade deal that breaks the full retail price into 24-monthly payments of $62.46. If purchased from Motorola, the brand offers an expected delivery date of March 19.]
