This year has been a hard one for me and especially my mum. Please keep us in your prayers that 2022 will be a good one with lots of health. Ameen. (Amen). So my family has been a firm favourite, as we can’t be without them. So on to the Beauty favourites and best products …
This month I am loving…
…All things beauty! I went to a family wedding in May and couldn’t do without the items below:
I’ll start with the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This is a replenishing Elixir of pure essential oils and distilled botanicals to visibly restore the appearance of skin by morning.
I put some on my hands and tap it into my skin just before bedtime. The smell of lavender is very soothing and in the morning my skins feels so nice and smooth. There are many night time serums arround but I find this one is great for the skin and affordable. I can recommend this if your skin needs a little night time tlc.
Next I am loving Laura Mercier’s body and bath soufflé in ambre vanillé. This smells so nice on the body and really lingers on the skin. It’s a scent in a bottle! Even my husband is a huge fan! My son does too and am sad that it’s nearly finished. 🙁
Next I am not usually a fan of bright coloured lipstick, but I wanted to be a little daring in the month of May. So when I tried the L’Oréal L’Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in the colour Ruby Opera, I was pleasantly surprised; red/maroon actually suited me! I find it brightens up my complexion and looked good too! I got a lot of compliments while wearing it at a recent function.
I was also liking the Essie hors d’oeuvres nail polish. This is a glittery nail polish that is silver with flecks of gold in it, which also creates a great accent nail. It came in very handy at the wedding I recently attended. I really like this nail polish which can also be worn on its own at a glitzy event.
I absolutely love this next product. The price is steep, but really worth it! It’s the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Mood Light. This powder creates a glow to the skin and adds to flawlessness. I like this powder as it adds dimension to my face and have had lots of compliments on my skin since I started using this.
The last item I am loving is the Mac Mineralize concealer in NC42. I find that this particular concealer is great for adding light to the eyes. I use in true Kardashian style, drawing on a triangle under my eye and blending it in with a brush. It adds a shine where the sun hits it.
Well most of those were high end, but I am very much a local drug store kind of Gal (Boots/Superdrug). I prefer the more reasonable price tags 😉 But if a product is really good I will pay for it, as the Ambient Powder and Kiehls Midnight Recovery above.
P.S. I had the loveliest time at my cousins wedding!
Also, this month I have been loving Vampire Dairies and Revenge on tv. I am sad though that both have just finished for the season.
