On Instagram I have been posting a few of my favourite beauty finds so I decided to do a full post and share a few more beauty products that I am currently loving!
I am always on the look out for great beauty products to try out so I hope this will help someone else should you be on the look out for something new.
Here are a few of my current faves :
I absolutely love this foundation! I’ve had mine for about 6 months now. It may look like a small bottle but a little goes a long way. I just need to apply a few dabs of it and that is enough to give me a flawless coverage. I like that it feels very light on the skin, doesn’t dry it out and lasts for the whole day; a perfect go-to foundation for work. The price is steep in comparison to other foundations but it lasts for a long time. I’ve also seen a few other people raving about this foundation, so I can definitely vouch for it. The shade I use is Rich Ginger and I bought it from Edgars.
Another new (but quickly becoming a firm) favourite of mine is the MAC Studio Moisture Tint. I didn’t know about it until my sister gave it to me since she accidentally purchased a shade which was too light for her. Luckily, it is a perfect shade for me (thank you sis! 🙂 ). If you are looking for light coverage, then you will love this! It actually reminds me of a BB Cream. It also feels very light on the skin and gives just enough coverage without masking away any natural spots you may have on your face. So it literally works the same way as a tinted moisturiser. I also like that it has sunscreen which helps to protect your skin from the rays of the sun throughout the day. I usually use this when I want light coverage which is mostly on Fridays or over weekends if I am out and about running errands.
I bought this one about 2 months ago, along with a day cream and their face wash. My skin was feeling unusually dry and I needed something that will put some much need moisture in my face. When I visited The Body Shop I informed the sales assistant of my concerns and he recommended this range. They also had a special running then whereby you buy could 3 products and only pay for 2! The day cream also works well to keep my skin moistured during the day but I love how thick and decadent the night cream is. I am also new at using night creams but since I’m in my mid-30s now I reckon I need to start looking after my skin a bit better.
I purchased this recently but not at the same time as the above products. I was looking for a setting spray at Clicks and I couldn’t find one. When I asked the sales assistant at she recommended the face mist and mentioned that it does the same job as a setting spray. I use the face mist to set my makeup after I have applied it to give me that dewy, almost natural look…and it helps to ‘set’ your makeup so it doesn’t rub off easily. Try it, it works. 😉
I think nude lipsticks look great for the winter season and I have been loving this combo from Essence. Using a nude lipstick on its own can give you that ‘dry and hungry’ look so the lipliner helps to bring some definition to the lips. These two colours work very well to achieve a nice pinkish/brownish nude look. You can find Essence products at Dischem.
