Every month, we sift through tons of beauty products and handpick a bunch of them to test and try out. Some surprise us and some let us down but either way, we consider ourselves very lucky to be a part of this vetting process. I mean, who does not want to spend time swatching gorgeous lipstick shades or trying out a potential concealer of their dreams? February and March both brought in a lot of beauty launches. We saw a lot of groundbreaking formulas, both in skincare and makeup, and even a few haircare formulas. Before we go on rambling, these are the products we will 100 per cent be repurchasing when we run out (or hit pan)!
Clinique added a new concealer to its makeup family and we're giving this one a solid 10! The hyaluronic acid and vitamin C formula stays in place for 12 hours and instantly corrects spots and blurs imperfections.
Bobbi Brown has given its famous foundation range yet another mini: Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Weightless Foundation. Much like its full-size fam, this one is available in over 40 diverse shades.
Normally we don't give credence to skincare products that claim to show results in as little as 3 days but this one turned out to be a winner. Not only does it leave your skin looking brighter, but it also leaves it supple and soft.
A primer that brightens skin, blurs perfection, controls shine and leaves skin looking velvety and smooth? Yes, please! We're buying one to use and one to keep.
Don't be fooled by the consistency of this gel moisturiser. It hydrates skin for 24 hours straight and tackles unevenness, dull skin, texture and dark spots. Plus, it has 1% salicylic acid that keeps breakouts and clogged pores at bay.
Consider this tint the key to a healthy post-workout flush without the hard work. It delivers the same look and the formula is non-patchy, blendable, pigmented and lasts all day.
This castor oil and keratin-infused conditioner will give you the smoothest mane ever! This coming from someone who takes minimum care of their hair, is lazy about combing it, has coloured it and rarely ever hair masks, trust me, it works and makes detangling a dream!
If you have been sleeping on the skincare benefits of moringa, it isn't too late. This moringa and matcha powder cleanser does a great job of absorbing excess oil from skin along with regulating sebum production. We love!
If you're looking one product that will take your makeup look from day to night, it is this eyeliner pencil. It is purse-friendly (mini + a pencil), stays blendable upon application and a few seconds after and is super pigmented! Smoke it out and line your lids and you're party-ready!
