It’s that time again! – I have no idea why I insist on starting these posts with that opening line, I’m hellbent on making it my Krusty the Clown-esque catchphrase. Anyway, another round of amazing products coming your way – for once I can say I have used each of these products every day this week!
To start, I’ve been spritzing on this Sachajuan Leave In Conditioner (£21), something I bought recently as I have extremely tangly hair. Extremely tangly. Sometimes I even get my boyfriend to brush through it while I distract myself playing Connect Four (the app, that is. This is 2014).
I mentioned on Twitter recently that I have been reverse-washing my hair, that is using conditioner first and then using shampoo. Insane, am I right? The reason being is that my hair is quite fine yet tangly (did I mention it was tangly? Oh I did, pardon me) so I use quite a lot of conditioner but it doesn’t wash out all that well, leaving my hair looking lank, dull and weighed down. Since I’ve been opting for the reverse method, my hair has been super shiny, soft and bouncy – but I can’t get the brush through it as easily. Enter this conditioning spray, the light mist softens any knots and makes it easier to brush through. It also helps to keep my hair healthy and glossy – a bit of a winner in my eyes. My Sachajuan obsession (obsacha-juan? No?) is getting out of hand, truth be told.
Next up, a new skincare addition that I have been elle oh vee ee… you get the point. I’ve been trialling a fair bit from Omorovicza lately, but one product that has stood out to me is the Queen Of Hungary Mist (£46) – probably the most expensive toner ever! Before I got in to toners (all of six months ago), I would never have even considered paying this much for such a product, but I just had to see what all the fuss was about. This aims to rejuvenate the skin, freshening up the complexion with every spritz and just generally leaving the skin dewy and hydrated. I always use it when I come out of the shower to soothe my skin, it works miracles on redness, and helps to create a nice moisturised base for my treatments and makeup. I also use it throughout the day to revive makeup, and if I’ve overdone it on the powder. It’s pretty lovely but also very pricey.
This leads me on to my next product, my current base of choice. The Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Cover Airbrush Powder Foundation (£34) – I’ve been looking for a foundation powder for a little while now and I have most certainly found it in this little wonder. The super perfecting powder has been concealing my acne scars so well, and it looks so natural when applied. It comes with a brush which is just perfect for buffing in the product, and the design of the tub means that although it’s a loose powder, there’s never any mess. I will do a full review this week, but just know that I am obsessed!
(Just a heads up, though – this is what I was wearing on my skin in the brow tutorial post!)
Also a favourite of mine this week is the NARS And God Created Women Palette, which was released some time ago but I tend to still use it in my everyday routines which is why it’s a bit gross looking now. I try not to own palettes that are limited edition because it feels like I can’t use them again, but luckily for you lot this contains shades which you can buy singularly or in a duo. The shades that I use often are Kalahari (the shade on the top left) and Galapagos – although I love and use them all. I love Kalahari all over the lid and it’s pretty much an everyday shade for me. So easy to wear!
Finally, the YSL Gloss Volupte Lipglosses (£21) are currently my lip product of choice at the moment. I have two shades, seen here is 203 which is the perfect coral shade. I’ve never been much of a gloss person but these are lovely, subtle but noticeable colour, lip-plumping shimmer and they have the most gorgeous watermelon scent. Highly recommend!
Have you tried any of these?
