Beauty products are a serious weakness. My dresser is rammed full of products (along with a few drawers). I like mixing up my look and trying new things. But every so often a product comes along that leaves me thinking ‘wow’. When I find a product that works I stick with it. These are my Beauty Favourites. They span the areas of face care, bodycare and makeup. There’s a much raved about foundation in this particular collection.
So here they are, my Beauty Favourites….
The Ordinary Coverage Foundation
With my mixed race complexion finding a decent foundation can be a bit of a task. This foundation is perfect – it gives full coverage, doesn’t leave my skin dry, lasts all day and evens out my skintone. At £6, you can’t go wrong. Buy here.
Bourjois Sculpt Light
it give’s my complexion a beautiful dewy glow. It is translucent, once it has been fully blended and leaves the skin with a beautiful metallic sheen without the sticky residue. I use it for a variety of uses – highlighting the corner of my eyes, in the brow arch, as eyeshadow and of course for accentuating my cheekbones. Buy from Superdrug for £9.99
Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick
These lipsticks offer great quality with a good level of pigmentation, an extensive colour selection and decent wearability. The formula is matte which is a particular favourite of mine. The shades will suit most complexions. Buy from Feel Unique.
Elizabeth Arden Eight-Hour All Over Miracle Oil
This oil is amazing – a versatile, multi-tasking formula for the face, body and hair. The scent is subtle bordering on non-existent . It leaves skin feeling soft as silk and adds shine to the hair. The oil is fast-absorbing, nourishes skin and conditions hair from root to tip, helping to eliminate frizz and flyaways for super smooth, sleek results.
MUA Luxe Bronze and Sculpt Contour Kit
I didn’t have high expectations for this kit. But the quality of both the highlighter and bronzer is surprising and the wearability is amazing, lasting a full day without touchups. For a budget product, the quality is brilliant. I can’t fault this product and would buy it again.
