Five Favorite Beauty Buys: October 2019

October 29

Illuminator: Shiseido Synchro Skin Illuminator
I’m a sucker for illuminators, so I love trying out whatever is on the market. I recently tried this one from Shiseido, and love it. Water-based, so it blends really well and gives a dewy look – and comes in two shades, more of a gold one and a rose gold one.

Multi-use: Cover FX Custom enhancer drops
After applying a primer, I always mix an illuminator, and most recently this – with my tinted moisturizer or foundation to create a glow-y look. It can also be used alone, but would give more of a metallic finish.
Available from Apotheca Beauty

Lips: Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme
The first lip plumper I’ve ever owned was from Too Faced. I like using it as a gloss for my lips, as a hydrator (because of the natural oils it’s infused with) and for an instant lip plump.
Available at Sephora

Powder illuminator: Pixi Beauty Glow-y powder in Fetch
I’m pretty obsessed with Pixi beauty at the moment, and using a bunch of products from the brand. This illuminating powder is one of my favorites at the moment (I love the ‘Fetch’, which is a beautiful unicorn rose gold shade) and gives off a lovely 3D feel.

Face Mask: Dermalogica Fizz mask
I rarely use masks on my skin at home, but I like this one from Dermalogica. Gentle on the skin, I like applying it on my skin when it feels congested – feels like a foam cleanser that fizzes up after a few seconds and makes your skin feel squeaky clean.
