Fashionistas. Apologies. Top 5 beauty products for May and June were forgotten about.
It is not that I didn’t have any favourites, the months sorta came and went and are now gone.
So here are July’s favourites. A little bit of this and a little bit of that !
1. LUSH R&B Hair Moisturiser $19.95
AGES ago I went to buy the Henna product from LUSH (I didn’t like it, it is way too messy for my liking) and they gave me a little bit of a sample pot of this hair moisturiser. Smells divine, gets rid of the frizzes and it was free. I scraped out the bottom of this sample pot and I missed it once it was gone!
I have had a balyage dye job for quite a while now. 3/4 weekly grey roots cover ups and bleaching of the ends have made my hair look, well, less than desirable.
Why I Love it:
Just look for yourself. No words
2. Nars Dual Intensity Blush in Frenzy $65 from Mecca Cosmetica
The blush nearly didn’t make it to the list until I spoke of my concern that my blush brush was not picking up a lot of pigment. One of the Mecca girls then informed me this blush can be used wet or dry for DUAL intensity (duh i didn’t know!) and a denser brush will work much better. Ok the brush is expensive. But so worth it.
Why I love it :
OMG. The colour pay off with the right brush is AMAZING. The highlighter is beautiful, highlighting without lots of glitter and the tangerine is just the right colour for me.Just have a look at this:
4. Essence Soo Glow Cream to Powder Highlighter Bright up Your life. $5.75 from Priceline
Why I love it:
The Price. The finish. The result.
I have several contouring products – my favourites would be Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (nearly finished) and the ELF Blush/Contouring set in st Lucia (at $8 from Kmart a STEAL). In the colder months, I find it quite hard to blend a powder contouring products if I want a slightly dewy look. This cream contouring kit came recommended to me and also has some great reviews on the Mecca Website. I am glad I went with the LIGHT version, because it is the perfect colour for me.
Why I love it:
Am I in love or what?? I use this every single day. The contouring shade is slightly grey, which is so perfect for shading. Both colours have no shimmer whatsoever. I can’t even show you the latest photo because it is well and truly loved and used.
Here is a swatch though:
Wow. It really was a big mixed bag this month. Have you used any of these products? What were your favourites?
Til next time,
