I’m not normally one to stray from what I love when it comes to beauty products as I can find myself disappointed but this year I found a few new products that I did like and some I now can’t live without.
Kérastase Elixir Ultime – Brilliant for beautifying my hair it is such a versatile product and gives my hair so much shine and condition. I don’t find it makes my hair greasy as well even when I load it on over itself, although it has a hefty price tag for the small amount I need to use I find it is value for money and they have a variety for every type of hair that is the same strength but different texture. I went for the coloured hair version which smells very similar to Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle so I feel like I get a double whammy of product and perfume.
Maybelline Dream lumi-Touch Highlighting Concealer – I have always, always, always loved YSL’s Touche Eclait unfortunately I have had to scrimp on my make up this year as I don’t see the point in spending a lot on my works make up and that’s when I discovered this beauty. I love the feel of the product and the coverage is brilliant. It also helps that I can wait and pick it up for a steal when boots do a 3 for 2 offer.
Nivea Rescue and Care Hand Cream – As my hands are always in water and even more so in December as the mad pre-Christmas rush starts and my knuckles get so dry and cracked that it becomes painful. This product has been my little lifesaver this year as it has a really nice thick formula that just sits on my skin and heals my hands in a few applications. I honestly don’t know where I would be without this product this month.
Benefit Browzings – I’ve never done anything with my eyebrows beyond occasionally having them shaped, so when I went to try some new products out and the lady at the counter said I should try it I was a little dubious. Now however I feel strange if I go out without a bit of brow powder on. I use the light colour as I find I can build it up if I want it darker. It really does help finish off my make-up look to have my eyebrows done.
Yves Saint Laurent Volumpte Sheer Candy – This product is a recent addition to me as I like wearing lipsticks but I find so many dry my lips out. I asked at the YSL counter because a friend had given me one of her lipsticks to try and I loved the colour so I asked if they had anything that wouldn’t dry my lips out. So far I am really enjoying the feel of this lipstick I only choice a natural gloss as I wanted to make sure I liked the feel of it before I committed to colours but now I am looking forward to trying out some of the colours too.
