SUMMER 2017: BEAUTY & SKINCARE FAVOURITES!

HEY LOVES! HOPE YOU’RE ALL DOING WELL. I WAS THINKING NOW WOULD BE A GREAT TIME TO LET YOU KNOW ABOUT SOME OF MY SUMMER BEAUTY & SKINCARE FAVOURITES! DURING THE SUMMER TIME I FOUND MYSELF REACHING FOR THESE PRODUCTS THE MOST & I JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH Y’ALL! HOPE YOU ENJOY X

 

BEAUTY FAVOURITES:

THE FIRST PRODUCT THAT I’VE BEEN DIGGING IS THE TARTLETTE IN BLOOM PALETTE! I’VE HAD THIS FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW, AND IT’S SUCH A GREAT EVERYDAY TYPE OF PALETTE WHERE I CAN DO MY EYESHADOW, BROWS AND EYELINER-ALL IN ONE PLACE. I LOVE THAT THIS PALETTE IS PERFECT FOR WHEN I TRAVEL BECAUSE IT REALLY HELPS ME TO PACK LIGHTER THAN I USUALLY DO SINCE I HAVE PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING I NEED ALL IN ONE CONVENIENT LITTLE PALETTE.THE SHADOWS BLEND SO WELL, AND ARE QUITE PIGMENTED. I LOVE USING THE DARKER SHADES TO GIVE MY EYES MORE DEFINITION SINCE I RECENTLY CUT OUT LIQUID LINERS FROM MY NORMAL MAKEUP ROUTINE. I’M STILL ON THE HUNT FOR A GREAT EYELINER BUT FOR NOW, “SHADOW LINER” HAS BEEN WORKING REALLY WELL! I ONLY USED THIS FOR MY EYESHADOW/LINER WHEN I WAS IN THE PHILIPPINES, AND FOR A WHILE NOW THIS PALETTE HAS BEEN MY TRIED AND TRUE. DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVOURITES OF ALL TIME IF ANYTHING! IF YOU HAVEN’T TRIED OUT THIS PALETTE I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU DO BECAUSE I DO NOT THINK YOU’LL BE DISAPPOINTED!

AVAILABLE AT: SEPHORA, ULTA.COM & TARTE.COM

 


 

ANOTHER BEAUTY ITEM I’VE BEEN LOVING RECENTLY (AND FOR A WHILE NOW) HAS BEEN THE TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA FOUNDATION. I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT’S LIGHTWEIGHT AND HAS A BUILDABLE MEDIUM-TO-PRACTICALLY-FULL COVERAGE. PLUS, IT DOESN’T LOOK CAKEY AT ALL ON MY NORMAL/DRY SKIN! IT ACTUALLY GIVES ME A LUMINOUS GLOW WITHOUT LOOKING TOO SHINY WHICH IS GREAT- ESPECIALLY BECAUSE IT’S SUMMER. ON MY TRIP TO THE PHILIPPINES, THIS WAS THE MAIN FOUNDATION I USED AND IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. IT HELD UP IN THE HEAT, AND LOOKED REALLY GREAT ON MY SKIN. I DEFINITELY THINK THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE FOUNDATIONS OF ALL TIME. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A GREAT SUMMER FOUNDATION- I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU PICK THIS ONE UP!

AVAILABLE AT: SEPHORA AND TARTE.COM

 


MY LAST BEAUTY ITEM THAT’S BEEN GIVING ME SOME SERIOUS COVERAGE, HAS BEEN THE TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONCEALER. AT FIRST, I WASN’T SO SURE HOW I FELT ABOUT IT BECAUSE INITIALLY IT WAS QUITE HEAVY ESPECIALLY FOR THE UNDER-EYE AREA. ALSO, DUE TO THE FACT THAT I HAVE NORMAL/DRY SKIN (DRIER SPECIFICALLY IN THE COLDER MONTHS), I REALLY WASN’T SURE IF IT SAT WELL WHENEVER I APPLIED IT BECAUSE IT WAS A THICKER FORMULA. DURING THESE LAST SUMMER MONTHS THOUGH, THIS CONCEALER HAS DONE ME WONDERS! MY SKIN HAS A BIT MORE MOISTURE NOWADAYS, SO WHENEVER I USED IT, I FELT THAT IT GAVE ME A VERY HIGH-COVERAGE MATTE TYPE FINISH. LITTLE TIP: A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY! I BELIEVE IN THE BEGINNING I WAS PUTTING ON WAY MORE THAN NEEDED, WHICH IS WHY I THOUGHT IT WAS A TAD DRYING. OVERALL, IT REALLY DOES AMAZING THINGS FOR MY DARK CIRCLES! SOMETIMES I SLEEP LATER THAN USUAL, SO THIS CONCEALER IS THE ONE THING IN THE MORNING THAT WILL BRIGHTEN UP MY COMPLEXION AND HELP ME LOOK LIKE I’M WELL RESTED EVEN THOUGH I PROBABLY ONLY HAD A FEW HOURS OF SLEEP! ABSOLUTELY LOVING THIS AND WILL DEFINITELY BUY A NEW ONE WHEN I RUN OUT!

AVAILABLE AT TARTE.COM & ULTA.COM

 

 

SKINCARE FAVOURITES:

I ACTUALLY HAVE TWO SKINCARE FAVOURITES! THE FIRST ONE GOES TO THE WONDERFUL PIXI GLOW TONIC! I LOVE PIXI AS A BRAND IN GENERAL AND WAS SO EXCITED TO GET MY HANDS ON IT WHEN IT BECAME AVAILABLE AT MY LOCAL SHOPPERS DRUGMART. THIS PRODUCT GIVES MY SKIN SUCH A RADIANT GLOW AND TRULY MAKES MY SKIN FEEL “CLEAN” IF THAT MAKES SENSE… I USE IT RIGHT BEFORE I PUT MY OILS AND AFTER I CLEANSE AND TAKE OFF MY MAKEUP WITH A MAKEUP REMOVER AND THIS STEP REALLY CLARIFIES MY SKIN BEFORE I DELVE INTO THE REST OF MY NIGHT REGIMEN. I BROUGHT THIS WITH ME TO PHILIPPINES AS WELL AND BECAUSE OF THE HEAT AND THE DIFFERENT CLIMATE OVER THERE, THIS PRODUCT REALLY HELPED TO KEEP MY SKIN AT BAY. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT, AND RECOMMEND TO ANYONE! IT HAS NATURAL INGREDIENTS WHICH IS A PLUS AND ALSO CONTAINS GLYCOLIC ACID WHICH REALLY HELPS TO PURIFY THE SKIN. SUCH A LIFE-SAVER!

AVAILABLE AT: SHOPPERS DRUGMART OR PIXI.COM

 

ANOTHER PRODUCT I’VE BEEN LOVING HAS BEEN THE AVALON ORGANICS INTENSE DEFENCE ANTIOXIDANT OIL. I LOVE APPLYING THIS OIL AFTER I USE THE PIXI GLOW TONIC- THEY WORK GREAT TOGETHER! THIS OIL TRULY MAKES MY SKIN GLOW AND I JUST LOVE HOW MOISTURIZING IT IS WITHOUT BEING OVERLY OILY IF THAT MAKES SENSE. I KNOW OILS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE “OILY” BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN! IT’S A VITAMIN C OIL WHERE IT HELPS TO “REINFORCE SKIN’S NATURAL LIPID BARRIER WHICH LOCKS IN MOISTURE AND PROTECTS SKIN AGAINST ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSORS (TAKEN FROM THEIR WEBSITE BTW!).” I FEEL AS IF THIS OIL REALLY DOES THAT BECAUSE I WAKE UP WITH SKIN THAT NOT ONLY LOOKS GREAT BUT FEELS REJUVENATED. I WAS ABLE TO PICK THIS UP AT MY LOCAL WINNERS AND FOR ONLY $9.99 SO IT WAS A STEAL!

AVAILABLE AT: WINNERS, AMAZON.COM & WALGREENS

 

THERE YOU HAVE IT! THOSE WERE MY MOST FAVOURITE ITEMS DURING THE SUMMER. HOPE YOU ENJOYED! LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU’VE BEEN LOVING- I’D LOVE TO KNOW.
