For those of you who are not keen on a heavy base and a touch of something the Chanel Les Beiges Fresh Water Tint could be for you. Its not got coverage like any of the other Chanel bases its literally a tint. Its super sheer with the pigment suspended in 75% water. The packaging and the brush is what definitely makes it costly but if you feel like a splurge then try it out. Perfect to add a touch of glow to the complexion.
I have loved Ren Skincare since I started using it in back in 2015 and its a brand that really works and makes skin feel amazing. Whether you want glowing skin or you have sensitive skin this natural brand has it all. This time I got to test out two products one is a face mist that helps protect your skin and the other a spray to help you sleep. I actually chatted about the Ren Flash Defense Anti Pollution Mist on my insta stories a while back. So if you didn’t get to see it go check out Shahnaz Loves Beauty its in my Face Mists stories. I have been loving both so much that they both live next to my bed in my coveted skin section.
If you looking to get seriously hydrated this winter then keep reading this post. Its all about getting hydrated with Avene skincare especially for those of you who have dry or sensitive skin. They have a gorgeous range that includes a Micellar Lotion, a gentle milk cleanser and a gentle toning lotion. Plus once you have seriously cleaned your skin leaving it feeling fab, you then add even more hydration with the Avene Hydrance Rehydrating Serum. Trust me when I say that after just one go of all of these four products your skin will be super luminous. I love love love all the products I got to test out.
I have finally finished my 4 week Prevage Progressive Renewal Treatment and my skin feels ridiculously amazing. Its a brand new treatment kit that is basically an at home peel kit that has 4 stages. I have always been terrified of peels and have dabbled in a couple non invasive treatments over the last couple years. This treatment gets the same results without any harsh treatment to the skin. You just apply every night and voila gorgeous glowing skin. Each week each treatment deals with different skin concerns and its gentle with no discomfort. My skin just looked and felt better each week.
On my trip to Europe last month I treated myself on some makeup goodies for the first time in ages. I either get makeup to review or I buy makeup for my kit. The Nars Skin Deep Pallette plus the Natasha Denona and Fenty Beauty goodies are all for me. I am definitely not sharing those with the models I work with. The Nars palette is so pretty with warm neutral matt shades and then some gorgeous shimmer shades. I love the rust shade so I went with that for this makeup look.
More and more people are turning to natural products including me. I try and be as concious as I can and opting for oragnic products for meself and my pro kit. So when I was invited to the iconic brand Burts Bees launch I was super excited. For those of you who don’t know it at all its famous for its lip balms made with beeswax a natural hydrating ingredient. For now there is a limited amount available in SA so lets hope that will change.
Coming our way on the 24th June the Clarins Open Your Eyes Wide Makeup Collection. My favourite item is the 4D Mascara I literally reach for this one every day as its just so amazing for my lashes. The collection consists of the mascara, ombre’s and eyeshadows in different textures, waterproof liners and brow pencil. I didn’t get my hands on the brow pencil but I did get a sparkle shadow instead. I am also obsessing over the liner, I got the Blue Orchid shade which is a fav colour of mine and makes my eyes really pop.
Swiitch Beauty have launched some new stuff and I got to play around with all the goodies. I have been busy testing on myself and on a recent shoot and I have to say I am pretty impressed. The new Swiitch squiish makeup sponge is definitely one of my favourites as it applied foundation, concealer and blush beautifully. What I love about Swiitch Beauty is that they make everything so affordable for all those makeup junkies out there.
If you haven’t checked out the latest palette from Urban Decay you are seriously missing out. Its by far my favourite of all the Naked palettes with such pretty shades. Introducing the Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette (R695) perfect for most skin tones. If you are a dark skin tone then the Naked Heat Palette will work best. The Naked Reloaded has warm tones you can use all year round and perfect for day to night. Its my current go to palette for myself with all the shades perfect for my brown eyes.
For all you Chanel lovers out there here some new lippies to check out. Thanks to the lovely Sarah from Prestige Cosmetics I got to test out 3 of the Chanel Coco Rouge Flash shades. If you want to see them in action head over to my instagram Shahnaz Loves Beauty I have created an insta stories Chanel Lips folder with me showing swatches and applying my fav shade Ardent. The lipsticks are super hydrating and glossy on the lips and just feel and look amazing.
