I have been gathering beauty products for the past few months and I though I’d write a post to accompany my video (yup I made a video which will be linked below if you wanna watch me swatching, squinting and rambling about these products aka giving you more details about these products). So, I bought some brushes, a bronzer, TooFaced travel size minis, a concealer, a powder and a few more things. So let’s peak into my shopping bag.
I repurchased my Estee Lauder Double wear concealer because I like using it. I prefer it for covering redness and not so much for under the eye. I had initially bought it for under the eye but it seems that it creases a bit on me. I do like the coverage though. Instead of using it for under my eye, I use it to cover up red spots. Under my eye I use the Maybelline erase age or something like that (you know the one….).
I got a Shiseido foundation brush and a Clinique powder brush. I like both of them. The Shiseido Brush is very dense and reminds me of the Artis brushes I see everywhere. I used it yesterday. I like it!! It applies the Shiseido foundation I also got very evenly. The Clinique brush is a fluffy brush which is great for powder.
I got the Chanel Stylo 197. The makeup artist described it as a green/ silver. I did a test trial on my vlog and it lasted well. I am thinking of getting other shades as well. Apparently they are limited edition and come in 3 shades. Chanel releases new colours every season.
I got a bunch of highlighters and blushes from TooFaced. The one that has stood out is the Snow Bunny Highlighter. I also tried the Melted lipstick creams (shade peony). I am not impressed. It was quite messy. I got the blushes Love Hangover (coral pink) and Justify my love.
I also got the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Medium/Deep which is a cool toned bronzer and I bought it because my contour shade in my Cocoa Contour Palette hit pan. The makeup artist at Sephora I try contouring with this and I like it. Of course I go in light handed cause, well, if I use too much it looks scary. I like this product!
Everyone has been raving about the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter. This feels like a balm. It looks pretty on the lips, but it is not long lasting. You definitely need to reapply during the day.
I got the Clinique Aromatics in White. Noone really talks about this perfume. I love it. I think it is as exquisite as Mademoiselle Coco (Chanel). It smells like a floral powder but with a sophisticated vibe. I wore it to a dinner party the other night and all my girlfriends asked me what I was wearing. Seriously, check it out when you can.
I was sent a LuLu Guiness Tangle Teezer and I am really happy with it!! I reviewed it earlier this month and you can check out the review here.
