A reader’s query for an all-in-one face base (foundation+concealer+powder) set me thinking about multi-tasking beauty products. I know a lot of women like multi use products but I for one prefer products that do one thing – and do it well. I’ve never been a big fan of lip/cheek tints – most can be drying on the lips or too creamy for my oily skin if not drying on the lips. Shimmery blushes make my pores look huge and I prefer using a matte/satin blush with a highlighter on the cheek bones. If I’m traveling though, I do like taking along such products to save up space – something like Maybelline BB stick is pretty handy – it takes up very little space and doubles up as concealer.
The only multi-tasking product that I can say I LOVE is the Kerastase Elixir Ultime Serum – you can use it pre-wash, as a leave in conditioner or as a serum on dry or damp hair to tame the frizz and add some shine. Sometimes I even use it before using heat on my hair.
