Five Favorite Beauty Buys: April 2019

May 1

Range: The Inkey List

Not a big fan of facials, but love acids. I came across The Inkey List recently and loved the fact how straight to the point it was, without any fluff.  My personal favorite, and one I’ve been using is the Glycolic Acid liquid toner (which is filled with 10% glycolic acid derived from sugar cane – so it gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells without overdrying the skin.

Moisturizer: Erborian Bamboo Glow

I love dewy skin, I love a glow so I couldn’t wait this product and it’s truly one of my favorites. I’m personally obsessed with French/ Korean brand, Erborian and have been using their CC and BB creams regularly. This aqua-gel cream is great with hydrating the skin, as well as giving you the most beautiful radiant finish. I like to use it without and under make up. Absorbs very fast too.

Illuminator: NARS Super Radiant Booster

I couldn’t wait for this to launch in the region. Limited edition and lightweight, comes in one universal shade – it’s gorgeous to wear alone as an illuminator (gorgeous and pigmented, yet buildable) or for a more subtle finish, I like mixing a little bit with my foundation. I also love make up infused with skincare properties. This illuminator has Vitamin E in it.

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow

I try to keep my brows very natural – other than cleaning them twice a month, I only use a brow gel to brush them up before going out. I love the new Dip brow gels from Anastasia Beverly Hills – I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it because my first favorite brow product was the pomade by the brand. This is super easy to use, comes in different tints, smudge proof, lasts all day and creates a gorgeous full finish.

Eye cream: Origins Ginzing refreshing eye cream

This eye cream has been a lifesaver when I feel like I’ve been looking very tired. Works on any skin type, it has a subtle scent and great for brightening under the eyes and depuffing. Ingredients include Panax Ginseng and Coffee bean to help refresh.
