There is a handful of beauty staples I wouldn’t be caught naked without (on nudity some other time :P) :
1.) YSL touche eclat – a well-known HG product among beauty addicts, great for covering those nasty (or perhaps naughty?!) under-eye circles. Tip: NEVER rub it, but tap it very lightly!
2.) CLINIQUE clarifying lotion – there are very mixed opinions on this one, people seem to either love it or hate it! I’ve been using number 2 for years now and would rather give up on chocolate than this little miracle! True, my skin probably is my best organ (no pun intended this time!), but this toner makes my skin flawless. I use it in the morning and evening, before moisturizing. My skin used to get quite flaky, especially during winter, but since I’ve been using this that doesn’t happen at all.
3.) Nivea Q10 Firming Body Lotion – I’m yet to find a better moisturizing lotion than this one! Rich but not sticky, pleasant smell, does exactly what it says…for a decent price! Could go on for pages…
4.) Dior 5-colour Eyeshadow – the only eyeshadow that I came across so far (and there were quite a few, believe me!) that could be applied without a quality brush and still get a great blendability and colour pay-off, amazing. The one below is Pink Extase, 804. Might do some swatches soon!
5.) L’oreal Lash Architect Waterproof – The thing is, I like my makeup glamorous, meaning I’d prefer Chanel or Dior over L’oreal. Yes, I am a makeup snob. But no matter which other mascara I occasionally stray to, I always come back home to this one! Unattractive blue packaging, true, but it does wonders to otherwise average lashes. Will post before/after pics so you can see for yourself.
What are your beauty HGs, ladies and gents? 😉
