With the number of make up and beauty products out there it is hard to filter out the best of the best and what is worth investing big bucks into. I have had some trial and error with some products where there was so much media and attention about them and when I finally got my hands on them it was a bitter disappointment and then other times I have been overwhelmed with how amazing some products turned out to be true to all their hype.
Here are my current tried, tested and LOVED products worth getting:
Marc Jacobs – Re(Marc)able Foundation
Where do I begin with this foundation!! This foundation is light yet full coverage, two small drops covered half my face! It has fantastic shades and it literally feels like putting on new skin! It is pricey but this bottle will last you a very long time. I have oily skin but I think this would suit anyone with normal and combination skin as well. If you have dry skin you would have to use a great moisturizer and hydrating primer before this foundation.
Chi Chi – Real Minerals loose powder
This powder is brilliant for two reasons, one – excellent setting and baking consistency. I bought the lightest shade and was using it to bake and set my concealer and it stays all day. Secondly this powder gives amazing coverage not too heavy and ‘powdery’ but still gives a overall flawless finish! Also you get quite a lot of product and it affordable too.
OGX – E Penetrating Oil
This is a lifesaver and a must have for all hair types. It isn’t oily at all and your hair absorbs it right away. I have oily hair myself and use this on the ends to give moisture, stop split ends and strengthen. It smells amazing and leaves your hair feeling really healthy!
NYX – Lingerie (shade – lace detail)
This is a fantastic matte liquid lipstick. It isn’t drying, colour is pigmented and lasts hours! I have been through many matte liquid lipsticks and haven’t liked the drying effect or the way the colour comes out on your lips – this liquid lipstick tackles both those issues plus they have such an amazing nude range!
Nude by Nature – Mineral Eye Primer
This primer sets everything! Whatever you are gonna put on your eyes – shadow, eyeliner , false lashes – it holds everything all day. It is gentle on the eye and a little goes a long way so you don’t have to repurchase this too offer ! Amazing product and a holy grail primer for me.
Rimmel – Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
This is such an awesome gel liner. The gel is super pigmented, thick and doesn’t budge! The added bonus is you get a little applicator brush which is part of the lid. I haven’t used the brush because I like to use a specific eyeliner brush which is super fine but I thought that it was clever packaging especially if you are on the go and need to apply it! Also this is really affordable and give a great finish.
Until next time lovelies xx
