One of the greatest aspects of being active in the beauty community is the ambition to try new products that often times blossom into lasting relationships. Within the past few months I have tried many new products that I have been so impressed by, I feel that I must share them in today’s post. Majority of these products are completely new to my collection; however, quite a few are actually repurchases that I highly recommend you try this summer!
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer. This foundation has quickly become a staple in my makeup kit. I have been using this for several months and whenever I attempt to branch out and try a new foundation, I find myself constantly going back to this. It is medium to full coverage, while still carrying a beautiful skin-like finish with a lightweight feel on the skin. I recommend this for every skin type; however, if you are extremely oily, I would recommend setting your face with a loose powder to suppress any oils throughout the day.
MAC Cosmetics Prep & Prime Fix + Fix + is such a versatile product that I suggest everyone have in their kit. I recently repurchased this product after having ran out of another setting spray and I have fallen back in love. This is a product that everyone can use in their daily routine. It can be used to prime the face for makeup, to set the makeup in place and to intensify any illuminators or eyeshadows. My favourite way to use this is to dampen my beauty blender with a few sprays to make my concealer blend flawlessly!
Benefit Cosmetics GALifornia BlushThis blush was a recent purchase of mine and I have used it every time I have done my makeup since I got it. It is a beautiful ultra-pigmented, peachy pink shade which I believe looks amazing on all skin tones. I love that this blush is not completely matte because it still has a very natural finish. Apart from the formula being impeccable, it smells like grapefruit—so yummy.
Stila Cosmetics Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow I cannot say enough good things about this liquid eyeshadow. The great thing about this product is that you can create a very soft dewy eye look by wearing it alone on the lid—or you can take it up a few notches and incorporate it into a smokey eye for a dramatic look. I love how easy the application of this is since there is no glitter adhesive required prior; you can achieve a glitter eye look all in one swipe!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Duo Brow PowderFor anything regarding brows, whether they are my client’s or my own, Anastasia is always the answer! Although I have been using this product for years, I recently repurchased it and I could not leave this out of my favourites. For someone like myself with a fuller brow, I always recommend using a powder as it tends to give the appearance of softer, fluffier brow which alludes to having more hair. I love the look of a soft brow while still displaying definition and this powder does exactly that.
MAC Cosmetics Lipstick “Yash”Anyone who is aware of my MAC lipstick addiction knows that, “Honey Love” is my ride or die colour. While I was recently at my local MAC counter, I was purchasing some new things when I came across a colour that appeared to be “Honey Love’s” sultry older sister. The shade “Yash” has quickly become one of my all time favourite shades. It is a perfect neutral brown that has a little bit of depth, and most importantly, is wearable for everyday.
SkinMedica Rejuvinative Moisturizer After recently being introduced to SkinMedica through work, I have been extremely eager to try out as many products as my skin can handle. Since struggling with my oily skin, it is has been difficult for myself to find a moisturizer that hydrates my skin but doesn’t clog my pores or leave a greasy film on my skin. While delivering optimum hydration and failing to break me out, this moisturizer has surpassed the abilities of any moisturizer I have used in the past—10/10 from me!!
I hope you enjoyed indulging in some of my recent purchases that I recommend you try this summer. Let me know in the comments your thoughts on these products and if you have any recommendations on products I try out!
