So these are my beauty product loves. I’ve been using all of these products for several years and I can’t imagine my beauty routine without them. If for some reason all my beauty products disappeared (please don’t!) these are the ones I would repurchase no questions asked. And what better day to talk about these products than the Valentine’s day 🙂
Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF 15 (£33.00/30ml) – This has been my favourite foundation for six years and counting. I do occasionally get swayed by new foundation launches but I always go back to this. It’s still the best and I haven’t found anything that comes even close. It just melts in-to my skin and is the most undetectable base I have ever used. It evens out my skin tone and covers all the imperfections. It doesn’t cling to dry patches and doesn’t make my complexion look greasy. The shade match (I wear #020) is absolutely perfect. It’s my instant pick-me-up makeup product and it doesn’t even look like I’m wearing makeup when I’ve got this on.
Vichy Deodorant 48 Hour Intensive Anti-Perspirant Roll On (£8.50/50ml) – Ok, granted, this will not work if you’re having a supper sweaty gym session, but for your average day-to-day activities it’s perfect. I’ve got quite sensitive underarms that can easily get dry and irritated. Not when I use this, though. It has a very nice not-in-your-face fresh scent and I find it dries pretty quickly. It’s pricey for a deodorant but it wears so comfortably that it’s worth every penny.
By Terry Ombre Blackstar Melting Eyeshadow (£29.00) – Best. Eyeshadows. Ever. I hope I can do these justice because it’s hard to find words to explain just how good these are! The size of the eyeshadow stick is perfect to easily cover the whole eyelid or to do a more targeted application. It’s super easy to blend and once it sets it does not move until you want it to. Having said that you don’t need to use any special makeup removers to take this off, any standard cleanser will do. It will last you ages even if you use it every day. The packaging is super sleek and it’s great for traveling. The two shades I’ve got are Misty Rock and Bronze Moon the former being a more shimmery number. Both are so easy to wear and they look beautiful with any makeup look. I love, love, love these!
Redken Extreme Anti-Snap (£18.50/240ml) – I normally don’t like leave in haircare products because they all seem to make my hair greasy or sticky. Except this. This doesn’t leave any residue on my hair yet it makes my hair much easier to brush. My hair is soft and smooth once it’s dry. It has a consistency of a watery cream and it absorbs instantly. It also protects hair from heat damage so there is no need for an additional product. I’ve gone through multiple bottles of this and I use it every time I wash my hair.
Beautyblender Micro Mini (£14.50/pair) – I tend to apply my foundation with fingers most days so I very rarely use my regular size Beautyblender. When it comes to concealer it’s much trickier, though. And that’s where these babies come in – they are perfect for blending concealer in areas where more precision is needed (around my nose un under the eyes). They work best damp so you need to get them ready before you start applying your makeup. I use these every single day and they make such a difference to the overall appearance of my base makeup.
