As a beauty editor, I will always tell you about two kinds of products: something new that I am trying and something I’ve been loving for a long time.
Part of my job is trying out new things so I can recommend and review them for you before you go out and purchase them.
Recently integrated into my routine It Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer. It’s a thick but blendable cream that guarantees waterproof, crease-proof and trademarked expression-proof coverage.
I suggest you also get it with the It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Dual Airbrush Concealer Brush, which is double-ended. One tip has a small, detailed brush end, while the other end is a big brush that you can use to apply powder to set your concealer.
The concealer is multipurpose. It consists of 24 different shades and you can use a lighter shade as your highlight color and a darker shade for your contour.
In a previous article and video, I showed how I use different tones of face makeup to achieve a well-blended contour, concealer, and highlighter. I think this concealer will soon be a favorite.
Australian brand Becca Cosmetics is all about celebrating unique beauty. Its website says, “No matter your age, style, face shape, skin type or tone, Becca empowers you to find your best light, glow your own way—and make each day better than the last.
Becca has a lot of successful launches, one of their latest was with Khloé Kardashian and her BFF Malika Haqq.
This time around they present the Ultimate Lipstick Love. Available in 29 shades, from classic nudes to dark reds and browns, it gives a full pigment and also a boost of hyaluronic acid to the lips. It leaves a moisturizing feel.
Hyaluronic acid has long been an ingredient in various skincare products for its water-retaining abilities. The acid helps lock in moisture and makes your skin look more plump.
Use it with the Becca Ultimate Lip Definer. If the lipstick has lip-loving elements, so does the lip definer which contains jojoba oil.
This lip liner is creamy and easy to use. It glides on the lips easily, without any tugging. It’s something you can use even on the go.
I will take a shade or two, as it has a built-in precision tool and sharpener. It makes retouching convenient.
All products are available at one of my favorite online beauty sources, sephora.ph.
