make up favourites 2021

this was a year full of great makeup discoveries – not necessarily launched in 2021, but that I came across and fell in love with this past year –, many of which I’m certain will stay front and center in my collection for a long time.
so grab a cup of your favourite beverage and tag along while I try to collect my thoughts on all the pretty shiny things I’ve encountered last year!

So many amazing products on the market, these were the ones I trusted my almost 40 acne-prone combination skin during the year. Of course I experimented around and there are some others out of this list that I truly rate, but I had to cut somewhere or this video would be 10 hours long.

Happy new beginnings, everyone!

Clinique old favourites (and a new flirt)

Sometimes I like to look at my beauty stash by brand to see what is my curated selection from it. Clinique is a brand I never noticed I had a strong relationship with, until I realised that some of their products are actually re-re-re-re-purchases. In this day and age of trends and companies coming out with new launches that they shove down your throat, this means A LOT (quite more than stuff I buy once and move on to the next new shiny equivalent from any other brand).

Here’s my curated selection of besties from Clinique (and a new fling I’m into at the moment):

Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm
Fresh Pressed System
Beyond Perfecting Foundation
Lash Power Mascara
Beyond Perfecting Concealer
