BARE MINERALS Complexion Rescue. I have been on and off testing this for over a month since it was crowned Face product of the year in the Mecca Beauty Election. So far, I love it. It reminds me of my go-to Clinique Even Better Glow foundation but slightly less coverage. It is in a mousse form so I feel like it more like a tinted moisturiser than liquid foundation which is sometimes nice for no make up days. It leave the skin with a glow and I honestly have no complaints.
ILIA Face Palette. To be honest, I have only been using this for a couple of weeks but the top left hand corner cream blush is my favourite. The depth of the rosy pink in the pan might scare you but it blends like a dream. I have been popping this on my cheeks and over my eye lids all week.
HOURGLASS Caution Mascara. Caution in deed. When I first tried this product I don't think I was ready for it and it took me a few days to make it work for me. It definitely is volumizing while adding length and curl to my lashes while not smudging throughout the day. For me I think the trick was to not fully coat the brush before applying. I like to build up my lashes a little slower than the fully coated brush allows. If you like high-impact though, you'll love it.
MECCA COSMETICA Lip De-Luscious. This product has been one of my favourite releases from the last couple of months. It is their fan-favourite Lip De-Luscious in stick form. It is an amazing lip balm with a tint of colour to them. I will definitely be repurchasing the Nude shade once mine runs out.
It has been a few months since I have touched base on the new products I have been testing out lately. So today I am going through some newbies that I have trying out in place of my all time favourites and letting you know how they stack up and if I will be repurchasing.
TATCHA Water Cream. This is an expensive cream to love so if you don't have $99 to spend, don't even test it. It is so damn beautiful. It looks almost like a lightweight gel formula but once you put it on the skin it actually does feel like water without leaving the skin feel wet. I feel like if you like the Clinique Moisture Surge range you will like this but for nearly twice the price it may not be worth it. I feel like if I am wanting to treat myself, I would definitely re-purchase.
TATCHA Pearl Tinted Eye Treatment. Again, with Tatcha it is going to set you back but it is pretty damn good. This is the love child of your under eye corrector and eye cream. It is a treatment so it leaves your under eyes feeling delightful but also corrects some of the darkness. On no makeup days I would use this as an under eye concealer but it doesn't have a whole lot of coverage. Sits at $70 but you honestly need the tiniest amount each use.
BYREDO Velvet Haze. This scent was another winner from the Mecca Beauty Election and I can now see why. It has notes of patchouli, coconut and musk. Anything musk is a winner in my books and I am not mad after adding it to my collection.
LOVE STORIES April Morning. Once again, musk, I just can't get enough. This scent smells a little deeper to me with notes of incense, sandal wood, wild flowers and a touch of pepper. As soon as I can get my hands on a full bottle, I will be purchasing.
While these products have been gifted to me, I have no obligation to promote or talk favourably about any of the above. These are my own opinions as always.
