Another month is almost up and I have been so lucky to try out new amazing products via my blog and of course from my shopping trip in London. Each month I try and write up about my monthly favourites in my personal life and in my work. So here is the list:
Benefit 15 Hr Primer: Love this primer I bought in my recent trip to London. Its very light on the skin and glides on beautifully. Its great for prepping skin especially if you suffer from oily skin as its not rich and doesn’t make the skin shiney. I love the packaging and I love the product. A primer is great for minimising pores and helping foundation to last longer and this product definitely keeps the foundation on.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream: Love this product. I have been waiting to get my hands on the cream. At the moment its only available in the UK and its quite pricey at 70 pounds but you don’t need much and its rich so will last you a while. Its an amazing product to really give the skin a boost and its a favourite of mine when I am shooting an editorial as I really want the girls skin to look amazing. I use it on myself for a real pick me up and before I go on a night out so that my skin is really glowing
Maybelline 24 Hr Colour Tattoo Metal in Electric Blue: I recently used this in a make up tutorial and I absolutely love it. Its a great budget product and amazing worn on its own or as a base before applying powder shadow. I really am a big fan of the colour tattoo cream shadows and can’t get enough of them. A definite must have.
OCC Lip Tar: So happy these have hit Cape Town available at Masque. This brand is called Obsessive Compulsive and is big in the States. What is great about this brand is that its a 100% vegan and cruelty free so we like that. These lip tars are amazing and will do a review later this week. There are loads of shades but I especially love the bright pink shade its a great summer colour. The tars can be used on their own but mix with lip balm so as not to dry lips out or mixed with a lipstick to get the shade you want.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation: I have always liked this foundation but its one I am using every day for myself. Its another great budget product and leaves skin looking beautiful and flawless (if you have bad skin you will need to cover blemishes with concealer). Its made from the same house as Chanel so that is a good indication of the quality. I have had lots of compliments on my skin which I am always happy about especially when I am told I only look 29 and as you all know if you follow my blog I am 37! Available at Clicks in South Africa and Boots in the UK.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow: Love love love. I am a big fan of contouring and highlighting. Its key to a beautiful face and its a trend we see time and time again. I love the art deco packaging and I love the quality of the product. In my pro kit for sure!
Hope you enjoyed my post. x
