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

 

Colour Pop Luxe Lipsticks

Some people ask me why, of all things overseas, I keep purchasing stuff from Colour Pop.

Well, even with the steep customs, each product comes out at around 8€. and the quality of almost every single item I bought is top notch.

Enter the Lux Lipsticks. I’ve mentioned so many products on my channel, now I’ve decided to make a dedicated video just to my little lip wardrobe. The formula is high-end equivalent, the packaging is not only cute but expensive-feeling. They have so many colours it’s easy to make a curated selection of lipsticks for any occasion.
They can be used sheered out or full-impact with one swipe, mixed for new colours and topped up with some cool glosses for extra shine. Despite my lips being quite dry, these lipsticks — especially the bolder colours — are quite forgiving.

All in all, I haven’t found anything like these within this price range. So let my addiction run free.

the autumn skincare edit

Autumn is here, with its sudden weather changes (oh, having to carry a coat all day, sweating profusely, because you know you’ll desperately need it at the end of the day), and our skin takes a toll.

today I’m focusing on products that you can amp up during this time (despite some being year-round favourites), because darker days come in favour of more intense resurfacing skincare (you still have to use SPF, no cheating) and because your skin is going to need your help to boost the hydration levels under harsh air conditioning and brittle cold wind.

self-tanners

all about my favourites to get (part of) that golden glow I used to have as a kid, without sitting in the sun. because ain’t nobody got time fo’ that!

Vita Liberata pHenomenal Self-Tanning Mousse — the most affordable I found was at Beauty Bay, but Cult Beauty carries more shades, like Feelunique and Look Fantastic — so it’s a matter of looking out for promotions.

La Roche-Posay Autohelios can be found on Look Fantastic and Feelunique

James Reed H2O Tan Mist can be found also on Look Fantastic and Feelunique

Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster is widely available in local stores, and you can also find it on Feelunique.
