I own a lot of beauty products, some better than others. Since i’ve had the opportunity to try so many different products i have found that there are some that i keep coming back to. In this blog post i’m going to list seven different products that i don’t want to be without
Kat Von D studded lipstick – Lolita
Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. This lipstick is my perfect MLBB color. I saw a weird youtube video were a woman claimed your perfect lipstick should be the same color as your nipples…. And well, with this lipstick i can confirm that theory works, hehe! Kat Von D has such a lovely line of both liquid and ordinary lipsticks in all the colors you can imagine, so head down to Sephora if you have the chance and find your prefect MLBB lipstick to!
MAC next to nothing pressed powder
My holy grail powder. MAC claims it’s got a whole new “technology” but idgaf about how it’s made, i just know that it works! It does not show up on the skin, it simply leaves a subtle blurring veil that evens out beautifully AND it reflects light! For us glow-lovers this i the perfect powder. It comes as a solid powder which makes it travel-friendly and free from fall down and mess. I was surprised MAC managed to create something that i like since i often find their products too high coverage, cakey and matte. I’m happy i gave them a second chance.
Hurraw lip balm
There are thousand of lip balms out there but this one is actually so good that i have to put it on my list. Hurraw is a vegan and eco friendly hipster-brand that creates wonderful lip balms in various flavors. They all contain a lot of oil and nourishing ingredients, perfect for chapped and dry lips. The formula does make them tricky to use underneath a lipstick, but i use this every night and the balm just works wonders. It’s like an overnight treatment for your lips! It saved my lips last winter and i don’t want to be without it ever.
Lumene shaping brow wax
You see me mentioning it in blog posts over and over again. I have used this product since i started to wear makeup. I remember stealing it from my mothers bathroom cabinet when i was 12, carefully brushing it through my brows to keep them in place. Now, this is not a very light formula but rather a soft wax. It keeps the eyebrows in place all day and the color gives an illusion of fuller brows. The only downside is that it only comes in two colors, blonde and grey-brown. I wish they would expand the line because this is something i would like to use on all skin tones/colors.
Missha Time revolution the first treatment essence
“What the fuck is an essence” i thought to myself and quickly made the assumption that it was simply glorified water… Until i tried the Missha first treatment essence. This lovely essence plumps my skin like crazy and helps the rest of my skincare to work it’s magic. With a consistency quite similar to water, i pour some into my hands, distribute over my face and then carefully tap it in leaving my face plumped and radiant. I follow up with my ampoule, serum and night cream, but honestly this one works perfectly on it’s own. Sometimes i just pat in layer after layer finishing off with a sheet mask. The only downside is the bottle which is made in solid glass, therefor it’s not very travel friendly. But the frosted glass does look and feel luxurious…
Lumene Ultra sensitive moisturizing & calming day cream
This is a products i’ve repurchased over and over, and i have no interest in trying another day cream. With a serum/oil underneath it’s the perfect finishing touch to my base routine, leaving my face soft, calm and non-greasy. I tend to easily get red, my sensitive skin can react to heat, sweat, stress etc but this one does the job and keeps my skin calm and happy. It’s also a nice budget product, so you don’t have to spend a fortune
Pixi Glow Tonic
A classic! Praised by pretty much everyone for it’s calming yet active abilities, Pixi Glow Tonic is a staple product of mine. I think i’m at my sixth bottle now and i’ve always got a backup. It contains 5% glycolic acid which smooths the skin and gets rid of dead skin cells, leaving a beautiful glow! The formula also contains aloe vera and witch hazel which makes it suitable for sensitive skin as well. Since i started using this a lot of the tiny “bumps” on my face has disappeared and the pigmentation/scars from teenage acne/hormonal breakouts has faded tremendously!
