Five Favorite Beauty Buys: January 2018

January 21

Illuminator: Nars x Man Ray illuminator
If there’s one product I’m a sucker for, it’s a really good illuminator. I love the one from the NARS collaboration with Man Roy in the Double Take shade. Highly pigmented and comes in a universally flattering shade.

Red Lips: Fenty Beauty stunna lip paint in uncensored
I’m not usually that big on red shades, but I heard so many great things about the Fenty Beauty one so I gave it a try and was super impressed. Pigmented, bright, staying power – matte, but not drying.
Available at Sephora

Body: Madame La La Tan Self Tan mousse
I had the most incredible tan after the summer, which I’ve lost with all the gloom outside. I’m not usually a fan of self tan products, but I love this one by Madame La La tan. In a mousse form, easy to apply, light, doesn’t streak, smells like coconuts. I love the fact that it’s so light and buildable, so it doesn’t streak. It has ingredients like coco water, vitamins A & E, Aloe Vera and green tea extracts, so it also hydrates the skin.

Face mask: Origins Clear improvement active charcoal mask
When it comes to skincare, I’m super simple. I don’t do any facials and I keep my skincare products very basic. I rarely do at home masks, but when my skin is feeling very congested, I’ve started using this mask from Origins. Great if you have oily, dull or congested skin.

Liquid lipstick: Pixi by Petra Mattelast liquid lipstick
You can never have enough nude matte lipsticks so I’m constantly trying out new products. I’m loving the ones by Pixi by Petra. Matte, yet super hydrating. My favorite shades are Pastel petal and matte beige.
