Beauty items worth going on a splurging spree (Guest Post)sábado, septiembre 03, 2016
As a working woman, I have my own money to spend and I do it freely; sure, I’m also saving up for a rainy day but a girl needs to let loose from time to time, don’t you think? Sure! An occasional splurge has never hurt anyone but it did make a lot of us oh-so-profoundly-happy.
Since I’ve been in the beautifying-myself-with-various-products game for a while now, I’ve pretty much learned the tricks of trade and I now know what’s worth a buck and what isn’t. That’s why, when I am talking to my girlfriends, I am always telling them not to feel remorse over spending their hard-earned money on beauty products. Especially if they’ve bought quality items that’ll not only last long but have an amazing effect on the skin. And, guess what – I am telling the same to you.
I am giving you a list of my favorite brands and products (most of these I’ve been using for years), and believe me when I say, you won’t regret buying them.
Here we go.
Never in my life have I had such amazing lip pencils like L’Oreal Couture and Rimmel Lasting. Both pencils have a rich, creamy texture, are easy to apply and last longer than expected. I use them instead of lipstick – they give a perfect, flawless-like matte finish to the lips and make them look fuller and luxurious. All shades are in both palettes – from nude and mauve to cherry and chocolate brown. I have them in all colors (both brands) – what can I say, I am hooked! Btw, they are incredibly cheap, too!
I love this one! Tinted pigments even out your skin tones and give the skin a naturally brighter/darker complexion. As far as I’m concerned, this product is an essential day cream for the face and it serves perfectly as a replacement for heavy powders. You can purchase light, normal and bronze shade.
You have to invest in quality skin products, otherwise – all that makeup is for nothing. When your skin is treated with products that agree with your skin type, have a healing and nurturing effect, you can spend days makeup free and still look super gorgeous. Or, when you do use makeup and you want your skin to glow even after you’ve removed it, you want to have a product that works for you. My absolute favorite is Asap skin care Gentle Eye Makeup Remover , a formula enriched with calming and soothing Aloe Vera and cooling Cucumber. It gently removes all traces of eye makeup without irritation and it’s leaving my skin soft, supple and beautifully clean. I use it every day and adore it.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Radiant Touch
Dark circles have met their match in this amazing product. Say goodbye to being asked “are you sick” whenever you fail to hide the dark spots under the eyes as this highlighter is doing magic! Also, it will make the skin appear brighter and more luminous – and it never looks cakey.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
It’s expensive, but it’s worth every penny! I love this Armani foundation because it feels weightless but it provides amazing coverage. I’ve been through plenty of formulas, but no other compares to Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation. And guess what? It’s available in impressive 24 shades, so there’s no doubt you’ll find the perfect match for your complexion!
The “orgasm” part in this blush’s name serves it justice - a swipe of Nars Orgasm on each cheek will elicit a healthy glow, every time. It looks different on everyone (I think it’s because of the shimmer) but it’s definitely a favorite, because it warms up your complexion and immediately makes you look awake.
With so many choices in the beauty department, it sometimes gets hard to focus and take your pick. And who can blame us – we are bedazzled by the amazing PR behind the products and the novelty that comes with. Luckily, I’ve made my choices and I’s sticking to them. Good luck finding your own!
