Everyone is on holiday, or at least is still in the holiday mood. And you know what means? A relaxed calm mind, indulging in whatever makes you happy, for us that’s food, pampering and how can we forget SHOPPING!!! This month, we wanted to share some of the cool things we’ve found and would love for you to try!
1. Highliner Gel Eye Crayon – Marc Jacobs
This has been one of my newest finds and I absolutely love this!!! I’ve been using my Maybelline pencil for the longest time and wanted to try something new. I came across this eye-pencil at Sephora. I’ve never used the Marc Jacobs beauty line before, other than for shoes. It’s really soft and easy to glide on. It doesn’t make my eye water and it stays on for quite long. I first bought the black, which is dark and pigmented and olive as it looks great with my brown eyes (it also stands out with hazel and green eyes). I now have the sapphire blue and silver, which I’m yet to use but they looked lovely! Girls, I really think you should give this a try, perfect for your smoky eyes!
2. Pure Melt Cleansing Gel – Clarins
This is a pretty cool cleanser. It starts out as a gel that clings on to impurities and make-up, it then melts into a cleansing oil with the skin’s body heat. Only once you splash your face with water it turns into a gentle cleansing milk. Please remember you need to use this on dry skin, I made the mistake once of using it in the shower and it turned into the cleansing milk. This is really great for travel as it serves as a multi-purpose product. This product is suitable for all skin types and leaves your skin deeply cleansed, soft and soothed!
3. Hangover Primer – Too Faced
This is like a refreshing cool drink but for your face! Whether its long work days at work or late nights. This primer is your cure, it hydrates, smoothens and brightens your skin for a healthy finish. It is also really light and comes in a tube with a pump which is again great to carry on for travel.
We hope you enjoyed our new finds and tell us your favourites this summer!
Over the last few months, I noticed my skin was not looking as fresh as it normally does. A lot of the times we expose our skin to extreme climates, whether it’s the heat outside or sitting in the air conditioner for a long time. Sometimes stress and fatigue too can reflect on your face, making your skin look dull and tired.
While surfing the net I happened to come across the Beauty Flash Balm by Clarins. I remember receiving samples of this product but never ever tried the product. I always thought it was an anti-ageing product or something. So after reading the benefits, I thought why not give it a try, since it was supposed to be an instant radiance booster. Let me tell you it’s a wonderful product. It instantly moisturises your face and tightens the skin giving a relaxed, clean and fresh look!
The best use is its duality. It can be used as a moisturiser, primer or even as a face mask. It can be used with a moisturiser, under your make up, over your make up or just by itself. The beauty balm is perfect whatever your skin type, whether oily , combination, dry or normal. It is non – greasy and very light weight.
I love make up but I am pretty lazy to sometimes go all out haha, this is wonderful, just a bit of the cream, followed by my kohl and mascara and I’m good to go.
I used this yesterday, I also put a light foundation powder over it and a little bronzer. What do you girls think?
