Five Favorite Beauty Buys: January 2017

January 29

Concealer: Estée Lauder double wear stay in place cover concealer
Finding a good concealer is one of the hardest beauty products to find – I get so picky with finding the right color, the right undertone, the right hold. I love this one by Estee Lauder, because the cream concealer holds all day, with quite a strong coverage without it greasing up the skin (due to the fact that it’s oil-free) and is humidity and water resistant, so it doesn’t smear.

Illuminator: Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer
One of my favorite illuminators at the moment. This powder is super light, but once you apply on the skin, the pigment is insane. One shade only, but it blends to any skin tone and creates that dewy finish whilst still being a powder. One of my favorite Dior Beauty products at the moment.

BB cream: Clarins BB Beauty perfector
Finding a great BB cream is not very easy, but Clarins always seem to make some of the best ones. I love their new ones (I mix my shade using fair and natural), which hydrates the skin (gives a dewy finish), evens out the skin, as well as brightens – which gives a lovely glow.

Dry shampoo: Co Lab Active dry shampoo Active
Definitely my favorite from the affordable standpoint, and my favorite from the brand’s range. Ultra light, doesn’t leave a white residue, citrus scented, has UV and pollution protection. It does the job.

Fragrance: Alexander McQueen Eau de Parfum
My favorite fragrance this month – the bottle is beautifully crafted and the scent is perfect for night. Notes include tuberose, sambac jasmine and ylang yang.
