This week’s favorites are a colorful and fun bunch! Brands featured in this week’s Friday favorites are Guerlain, MAC, Benefit, Orly and Revlon!
Guerlain Meteorites Pearls (02 Pink Fresh)
I’ve been using these on and off for a while but I didn’t quite appreciate how lovely these are till now! I know many of you have been a little confused about how to use these. This is basically a highlighting powder and you just take a fluffy brush, swirl it around in the tub containing the pearls and apply it to the skin. The brush picks up the highlighting powder from the surface of the pearls when you swirl it in. I find this works best as a highlighter on the high points of the face giving a very natural and beautiful glow to the skin. One of the best ways to fake a good skin day! Price : Rs 2900
MAC Impassioned Lipglass
I love bright hot pinks and Impassioned is one I treasure a lot! I believe this was limited edition along with Girl About Lipglass though I don’t remember which collection it was. The lipglass formula is quite sticky but very pigmented and long lasting so I don’t particularly mind. The color is the perfect juicy hot pink that I have been craving this season and I loved wearing it this past week! Price : Rs 1150.
Benefit Cha Cha Tint
I’ve wanted this since a long time because its such a beautiful coral color! I picked this up as part of the Benefit Go Tropicoral Kit from Sephora and this is easily my favorite piece from the kit. The formula is runny (but creamier and less runny than Benetint), very pigmented and I personally love it on my cheeks! On my lips, it doesn’t quite show very well as I have slightly pigmented lips but on the cheeks, its stunning! I think I’ll be using this a lot over the summer!
Orly Nail Lacquer : Frolic
I honestly picked this just for the color but the formula is a real winner! I’ve had this on my nails for about a week now without a top coat and it has barely chipped (and I do quite a bit of housework). Surprisingly enough, the finish is still glossy though not as much as it is when freshly applied but pretty great nonetheless. The color is beautiful – a rich orchid that brightens up the hands and is very trendy at the moment. Recommended! Price : JPY 580 (Rs 341).
Revlon Photoready Skinlights Illuminator : Bare Light
This product is definitely for those who appreciate subtle highlighters. The creamy, slightly runny formula is really easy to blend and you need a tiny amount for the high points of the face. Bare Light is a warm beige with micro shimmer and it just melts into my skin giving a very natural glow. You could also mix a tiny bit with your foundation for a soft all over glow but I haven’t tried that yet. I’ll review it in detail once I’ve worn it in a few different ways. See swatch HERE. Price : JPY 1600 (Rs 942).
