August Hit List
So here are my favorites for August:
My new facial mist is this local Vanilla & Co. Witch Hazel Beauty Tonic. . I was supposed to do my own concoction of facial mist by mixing water and tea tree oil but bought this instead because it contains witch hazel and tea tree exact. If you still do not the benefits of witch hazel and tea tree extract on your skin, then you might as well google it asap. I learned from the Physiogel Event through a GSK Dermatologist that the shorter the list of ingredients are, the better. This mist only has 6 ingredients, all of which are natural and organic. Fore reference the ingredients are: Water, Witch Hazel Extract, Tea Tree Extract, Lemon Extract, Peppermint Extract and Vitamin C. The atomizer works so well that I did not transfer it to another bottle. The spray distributes the product all over m face really well. The mist has a subtle ginger scent. So, imagine spraying your face with salabat. :) I use this after applying my face makeup and it makes my face look less powdery. It helps my makeup settle very well but does nothing to make it last longer.
I got this bb cream from Sampleroom. I have heard a lot of raves from Colour Collection lipstick but I have never heard about this bb cream. This has got to be the closest bb cream to my skin tone. (Just one tone lighter) Most BB creams are two-three shades lighten than my NC35 skintone. This also has a yellow undertone that makes it very suitable to my medium skin. This goes on creamy and evens out my skin tone very well. The light-semi medium coverage makes it perfect for everyday wear due. More on this soon. I will make a more detailed review on this one.
Fairydrops Platinum Mascara Film Type
I got a surprise from Fairydrops a few weeks back. They sent me their newest Platinum Film Type Mascara. The brush of this mascara is truly one of a kind. It is one of those mascaras that can hold my curl for almost a day. I have documented this and I will make sure I will blog about it anytime soon. It gives my lashes volume and it also adds a bit of length.
This is currently my favorite eyeshadow quad. I carry it my makeup kit for a quick glam up solution. The colors are perfect for everyday wear and hands down to pigmentation. It is not powdery and goes on very creamy when applied. Swatches of the Avon True Color Quads soon on my blog.
Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm Stain in Honey
My go to everyday lippie. This is very long lasting and pigmented. The shade Honey glides to a mauvey pink shade on my lips with a sheen but leaves a reddish tint on my lips.
Makeup Factory Automatic Eyeliner in No. 03
This goes on creamy and stays forever on the lid and waterline with minimal fading. The pigmentation is also great and No. 3 does not look too harsh compared to the shade black. It has built in sharpener and smudger .
What is your favorite beauty/skin care product last month?
Hope to hear from you.
Have a blessed day!
