I’ve been trying more beauty products lately. I used to be absolutely faithful to a couple of brands, but since I’m addicted to lots of beauty channels in You Tube now, I’m discovering a whole new world. And I’m loving it. Here you have a few new products that I’ve been loving lately:
This Summer I bought the Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter in a railway station. Am I the only one who buys most of her beauty products in transit? Airports, railway stations, duty free or not… I don’t care. Anyway, I used to love Body Shop during college but since then I think I ‘ve never used any of their products ever again. Well, after listening to lots of Youtubers claiming that Body Shop body butter was the bomb I decided I should give it another chance. Do you know that they have a gazillion versions now? When I was in college there were the olive oil, coconut and almond body butters, I think. That was it. Well, now you can choose between every fruit imaginable!!! But I chose chocolate. Because if I can choose, I always choose chocolate. That’s my moto in life. The truth is that this is the closest you’ll ever been to become a chocolate bar. It really smells like chocolate and it’s just as nourishing. It leaves your skin super soft, a tad shiny (but in a good way) and it was perfect after that glorious shower that makes Summer nights a little bit better. You know, that moment when you finally get rid of the sand and you decide to let you hair wet and just go out to have some delicious dinner. I liked it so much, that I will be using it again in Autumn.
The lipstick pictured is the Maybelline Color Sensational in Precious Beige. I wanted something like that since I saw this video. I love a good eye liner and this lipstick is the best partner for a 60s look. Well, basically I try to copy the look from the video. The result… well, I’m getting there. I think it gives the sensation of fuller lips and has a beautiful slightly glittery finish. So 60s.
Anna, from Vivianna does make Up , convinced me with her pretty videos that I needed the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadows in Fuller Fudge and Ample Amber. They are super easy to apply (I just draw a line and smudge it with my fingers) and I get pretty nice natural brownish smoky eyes. They have been my absolute favorites lately. The last product today is the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. That was Anna’s fault too. Here I have to say that for me nothing compares to Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat. That is my favourite beauty product of all times. But I was curious about this concealer. Mostly because some times you need something with more coverage. Well, if coverage is what you want, this is for you. I use just a tiny amount and blend, blend, blend. I don’t wear it on a daily basis, though, but when I want to bring the big guns (and leave the dark circles under my eyes at home) this is what I’ve been using.
What about you? Any new beauty products? Do you buy things because you see them in others and like them? Are you addicted to beauty channels too?
