Within the last month, I tested out a variety of different beauty products and its about time to share some of my seasonal favourites with you. Also, some brand new products that recently launched in stores and whether if its worth of hype or nah. A little disclaimer: I was lucky enough to get sent these products from the lovely media team at each brand to test these out. But all opinions are my own. Also, I have linked each product on their names, so you can purchase these products and try it for yourself!
High end beauty products are always known for its luxurious and nice packaging, the sleek black and simple look of the packaging definitely got my heart. One big tip for buying beauty product would definitely be purchasing it from Sephora, because their return policy is amazing!
I was sent by the team at NARS, these new products that are recently launched in stores. But here are some of my favourite from the new release.
I have been using this blush for two years now, it is definitely one of my go to blush, sometimes I even skip wearing highlighter when I wear this blush, just because the finish give me a peachy pink glow on my cheek. I think this is great size value for the price you are paying for. To be honest this small blush would probably last a year, since you only need a little of this blush, it is very pigmented. Everyone raves about this, but definitely worth of the hype! It is a perfect peachy pink for all skin colour. The lipstick is perfect match to finish a makeup look, to balance with the blush.
I felt in love with this highlighter the moment I opened it, it is a very comparable highlighter compared to the Becca Champagne pop, it is a more orange sun kissed highlighter. The luminosity is incredible, it really brings the highlight and dimension of your face. But a bonus its definitely not crazy sparkly. If you want popping highlighter, this may be the one! Make sure to purchase it before its sold out or no longer available in store, since it is limited edition.
This is a super matte lipstick and this is a perfect pinky mauve shade, matches fairly well with my tanned skin tone. However, the only down side to this for me is a little too drying for my liking, since I do have pretty dry lips. Need to find myself a good lip scrub for sure.
Aside from my all time favourite IT Cosmetic CC Cream, this foundation would be my new foundation love with high coverage and matte finish. For this foundation, I am in the shade BD40 (warm sand, with golden undertone). I like the variety different range and tone of YSL foundations. I am personally more of a golden tone person because of my tanned skin. This foundation is a little different from the old foundation, I used to love wearing the YSL Touche Eclait Le Teint, because of the smooth and silky finish, however the coverage is more of a medium, I needed more product to build up the coverage, I go through a bottle pretty quickly. Since I do have a lot of scars left from acne and pigmentations. This new foundation have a better coverage and the matte finish is amazing, especially if you are a grease ball like me, just set it with a translucent powder then you are good to go. The only downside of this for me, its not sweat proof, not a foundation if you are looking to go clubbing with, sorry girls. But definitely good for everyday wear if you need a full coverage foundation.
Drugstore products are sometime a hit or miss. Here are some of the products that I have been testing out in the last months and loving.
I've been using this conditioner for a while now, in fact I am actually using my third bottle, this is a very mositurizing conditioner, especially good for those who has damaged and dry hair. 3 minutes of miracle and magic, exactly what is sounds. But I personally leave it in my hair for more than 15 minutes, or when I finish showering I will rinse it last, it makes my hair feeling silky and soft. Try it out if you haven't!
Who doesn't hate white marks on black shirts.... I hate it, happens every single time, especially with my black gym clothes. Problem SOLVED with this spray on anti-perspirant! No marks and you can bring this everywhere easy spray on like a perfume. Another bonus, this is a deodorant that can be shared with friends, save a friend in need haha!
I am usually not a drugstore dry shampoo person, but this took me by surprise. It does not leave a white mask on the hair and it does a wonderful job, refreshes your hair and creates volume to my second hmmm maybe fourth day dirty hair. I really like the grapefruit and mint mixture in scent, not heavy but refreshing.
I have been using Crest whitestrips for at least four years now, it really does its job at keeping your pearls white and polished. I love the new idea of incorporate the modern LED light to fastening the process of whiteness and make the white last longer. For this kit, you would leave a strip on your teeth for an hour then apply the light on both and upper for a time that was set on the light, it will turn off on its own. I do notice my teeth is a lot whiter after using in compare to the old ones, but it makes your teeth slightly more sensitive, I'd recommend using only once a month.
Can't wait for you to try these products out and hear your reviews, make sure to share them with me!
