End of another month brings another Favorites post! I’ve begun to really enjoy doing these posts because I get to cover a lot of products in a single post. It also
forces encourages me to use more products from my stash!
1. Clinique Super Balanced foundation
I LOVE this foundation! It has about medium coverage and it gives the loveliest natural dewy finish to the skin. Its meant for normal to oily skin. It just makes the skin look so beautiful. Full review will be come soon. Price : Rs 1900.
2. Clinique Even Better concealer – Orange brightener
This is great for neutralizing the darker shadows/pigmentation under the eyes. Its not TOO orange like the MAC orange corrector so its pretty wearable even for someone with not too bad dark circles. I tried this on my Mum as well and it really made a difference! A corrector is not a substitute for concealer, it is used in addition to a concealer. So you need to top this with a concealer. Price : not listed on my pack. (will find out and update)
3. Clarins Illuminating Cheek Color – 02 Soft Peach
This is a gorgeous peach blush! It has some fine gold shimmer that is very understated, doesn’t emphasize the pores at all! The color is quite soft but shows up well on fair to medium skin tones. On deeper skin tones, it would work better as a subtle highlighter. The gold packaging and the red velvet pouch adds a luxurious touch though the metal tends to retain fingerprints which I’m not too happy about! Price : Rs 1700.
4. MAC Lipstick – Brick-o-la
This was my first lipstick from MAC and I love this shade! It works on so many skin tones and across so many age groups. Its an earthy pinky brick shade and a gorgeous neutral for medium to dusky complexions! I LOVE it! Reviewed HERE. Price : Rs 990.
5. Estee Lauder Pure Color Quick Thick eyeliner
Ever since I’ve discovered pen liners, I rarely use gel or pencil or liquid liners! This one is quite expensive but its different because of its thicker tip. I prefer slightly thick liner and its very easy to do thick lines and flicks with this one! Reviewed HERE. Price : Rs 1870.
6. Ben Nye cream blush palette
This is an old favorite and has been shown in this feature before I think. It contains 6 shades, they are not greasy and quite pigmented. I love this palette! If you’re visiting Mumbai, do pick this up from NBC (New Beauty Center, Khar). Price : Rs 1050
7. Maxfactor Spicy Plum lip gloss
There was a time in college when I used to wear this everyday for my classes! Its a sheer balm-like gloss, not too shiny and very moisturizing. I love it! Wore it a lot on ‘no-makeup’ days last month. Price : Rs 475.
8. MAC Fleur Power blush
My first blush from MAC – gorgeous coral pink color with a satin finish. Its the perfect color for me, it always looks good, goes with all cool toned lip colors. Will work for all skin tones in my opinion. MUST-HAVE! Price : Rs 1350.
9. Inglot Eyeshadow Rainbow refill – 107R
This is such a versatile product. I’ve used it in nearly every video lately. I love using it for blending out eye shadows in the crease and for my brows as well! Price : Rs 450.
11. MUA Eye shadow Palette – Heaven and Earth
Gorgeous neutral palette and ridiculously inexpensive! (4 GBP). I’ve used it quite a bit last month. Reviews and swatches will be up soon.
11. Moroccan Oil
My much loved Kerastase Elixir Ultime is almost over and I’ve now started using Moroccan Oil. I’m not sure if I like it more than the Kerastase one yet but its definitely good! It really softens the hair, tames frizz to an extent and is excellent to ease out *friction* when you iron your hair. More on this later once I’ve had a chance to use it a bit more. Price : to be updated.
12. Clarins Lotus Oil Treatment for Oily Skin
This is great for oily, acne prone skin and I use this in the night time as a treatment. It has definitely helped with my breakouts and also balanced out the oiliness of my skin. And it lasts forever! Price : Rs 2400, also shown HERE.
13. I love…Strawberry and Milkshakes
Got this shower gel in my June Vellvette Box, it has the most amazing strawberry scent. I love it! I think it smells better than the TBS Strawberry range! :O Price : Rs 250 for 100 ml.
14. Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Super Rich Body Cream
Nice rich body cream with a fruity scent. Comes in a huge tub and lasts a long time. I bought it from medplusbeauty.com, see full review HERE. Price : Rs 1400.
15. Adidas EDT Natural Vitality
Lastly, I’ve been loving this fragrance from Adidas lately, its a nice fruity scent – smells like lychee and watermelon and is not sickeningly sweet but quite refreshing and nice! Doesn’t stay too long on the skin but lingers on clothing for a few days. Its quite affordable, Price – Rs 350 for 30 ml.
