Beauty Update

I went missing from blogging for a while after my move in to my new apartment. However, I have been buying products and testing them, and have now come up with a few favorites. These are all kind of products and not a particular kind. Here is what I think.


1. Josie Maran Argan Color Stick 

What I really love about them is the healthy glow it gives. And as we are getting closer to winter, dry dull skin has its answers here. It has healthy argan oil, which means every time i apply I also add a level of moisturizing. Which means, peeling dry skin, becoming visible during winter, over the layers of makeup is not an option anymore.

2. Claudalie Hand And Nail Cream

I won't say this is the ultimate product, but I like it. I usually prefer creams with great smell as it not only keeps hand moisturized but also fragrant. This one does have the smell of a rich cream but then, this is also a matter of personal choice. Some may actually like the fragrance. However, as a hand cream, merely doing its job, I think its great.

3. Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush

I have realized from several trial and errors that a foundation brush can make a whole lot of difference. I always hated pushing the product into my skin, when I applied it with hands and ended up testing quite a few products. My last one was a Sonia Kashuk brush, which I did not like at all. But after moving onto the Tarte foundation brush I realized that the  structure of an applicator is the biggest factor. Its bamboo handle makes it convenient to hold and soft bristles are easy on the skin. also, the unique square shape I thought, made application quite convenient. I never have to use my hands anymore and it does give a great airbrush finish. A big thumbs up for this one.

4. Clarins Sunscreen Cream High Protection

This product spreads onto the skin like milk and quickly evaporates. Doesn't leave any milky/ greasy residue on the skin. Its great for the face. I often use it under my foundation. I won't recommend it for the pool though, but for everyday use, I think its fantastic!


5. Claudalie Vinopure Purifying Mask

This one left my face clean. Clean that makes your skin feel that its breathing! I clean my face throughly before using it. First use a blackhead removing strip, then massage oil on my face thoroughly and then wash it with a face scrub. After which I apply the mask. Now, you would say that that's half the job done for the mask, but you got to try it to believe. It does make the skin breathe without making it dry like some of the other clarifying masks.

6. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation with SPF 15

This one does stay on for a very very long time. And there is more to it. It covered my 'large' pores around my nose area. When I say pore read massive. It didn't sit on it and emphasize but just glided over. I love this stuff and it is medium to full coverage too, but doesn't feel heavy at all. Love.
