Firstly it’s definitely worth noting that i’m finally doing a favourites. I feel like it has been absolutely ages since I’ve done one. At one point I had so many favourites I couldn’t fit them into one post with out dragging. But on the other hand I had time where I had barely no favourites for months in a row.
Beuti Skincare |Beauty Sleep Elixir
Born in 2015, Beuti is a brand that is committed to luxury skincare without the hefty price tag. The product I was generously sent to try about two months ago, was the Beauty Sleep Elixir.
It has a blend of 14 natural plant-based oils,
including a Caribbean coral extract. This is a powerful
anti-inflammatory which neutralises the enzyme responsible for
skin aging. Not only this but also sandalwood nut kernel oil to help prevent
collagen and elastin break down.
These ingredients are combined with a generous amount of
camellia oil, chia seed oil, bitter cherry seed oil, strawberry seed oil,
pomegranate seed oil, blueberry seed oil, cranberry seed oil,
raspberry seed oil, seabuckthorn fruit berry oil, sandalwood oil,
lavender herb oil, geranium flower oil, neroli flower oil and capric trglyceride from coconut. (Awesome sounding right?!)
On the website it reads that it is good on it’s own as a primer. Personally I would use it before applying a primer as I have naturally oily t-zone so an oil in isolation would not be the best for my skin type. You can read my latest post to see what primer I’m currently loving HERE.
As someone who is keen to have clean effective skincare products at a reasonable price, this product has been used not just at night but under makeup in the day. Although it is on the higher end of my personal skincare investments it is very much more affordable than any luxury skincare products we see frequently. Plus I feel better knowing it is just a blend of natural products and no chemicals.
Flormar | Make-up Fix Spray
As someone who has never tried an aerosol setting spray before I was actually so impressed with this one. It is also the first time I have ever tried Flormar, which is available in Primark stores. (Although not n any I’ve personally visited yet) The setting spray has cucumber fruit water, chamomile flower extract and bisabolol, which all all calming for the skin. The aerosol made it really a nice level of distribution also I found limited risk of your face getting wet. It is still an aerosol so I personally held my breath when using it it didn’t last long since I used it daily. The 75ml can lasted me about a week to be exact.
NIP + FAB PRIMER ESSENCE
You’ll know from my recent post that this works surprising well despite it being an essence and me having combination skin type. I literally have found that this will help my make up last all day and I know its good because it’ll make my skin tacky before application. This primer essence comes in a selection of 5 different types but mine is definitely banana. As someone who isn’t really a banana person, i’m shocked. Certainly thought it would be peach all the way. It is on the higher end in terms of price however I literally use 2-3 drops a day so 30ml will go a long way.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip | Fuego
For this I wanted to be really specific for you as Colourpop Offer a huge selection of shades. Most recently I have been asked what nude I have been regularly using on my lips and it is “Fuego”. Paired with a brown liner I just feel like it is such a go-to lip combo for me. Coulourpop cosmetics is just super affordable, good quality makeup. I’m hoping it’ll one day be a little more accessible to us in the UK that said I’ve no complaints when I have made my purchases. This is a matte formula however I don’t find it drying in the slightest bit. Even if I don’t oil my lips beforehand I find that this gives me a great look. Usually these are $7 however I noticed today its on sale for $5.60. This lip is definitely fire to me.
Lush | Translucent Face Powder
This is going to soon be empty because from the day I got it, I’ve been using it. For a translucent powder it’s pretty interesting since it is pink in colour however it is also so perfect for my skin. It distributes through the word “Lush” which I find really cool and reminds me of Fenty for that. Lush makeup is genuinely one of my most favourite brands despite them being under promoted. If you actually check out the foundation range for example, it is super inclusive and all natural, quality products.
Kiko Milano| Maxi Bronzer (Jelly Jungle)
To bronze my face daily when I’m on the go, I’ve been using this by Kiko. It’s more of Summer kiss bronze for me and is a mid toned bronzer on me. I use the shade 02 (warm monsoon) and I just feel like it is a really natural look for me. Actually gave one away in a previous giveaway and I was told that they also loved it. The only thing is because it was part of the Jelly Jungle range, I’m unsure as to how accessible it still is however I hope they bring it back if not.
Going forward I’m still going to commit to only posting when I have a selection of favourites. However what I will do is make a highlight box on my home page should there just be a couple of products I’m loving but want to share.
What have been some of your favourites this month?
