I finally have sunlight for the first time in six weeks! I was so excited to be outside doing photos that I got sunburned as it was my first true sunny day in months. La Bella Figura is a new brand I’m just exploring. Their inci lists are incredible. The Gentle Enzyme Cleanser is a liquid style cleanser that feels amazingly active on the skin but it won’t leave it stripped or dry. It’s got rose flower distillate, aloe, carrot seed oil to name a few, plus pineapple, pumpkin and papaya enzymes for gentle exfoliating. It’s also got white clay and witch hazel for some detox/pore clearing. Love it. More to come.
I just rediscovered my NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex again and oh how I missed it. This is a thin, slippery hydrating cocktail of hyaluronic acid molecules for an easy light hydrating layer. Review HERE. My love for Rituel de Fille Rare Light Luminizers runs deep. Phosphene is the most amazing pearly beige with a pink peach purple twist. It’s unique in a sea of highlighters that all look the same. I love the cream formula because it lasts. It’s that perfect not too hard but not too soft kind of creamy highlighter. A serious hero product for me. Review HERE and HERE.
SUQQU Pure Color Blush in Amacha 103 is the perfect pearly pink nude. Not too pearly for a blush, just enough to give it dimension. I have depotted mine for my MUFE palette as you can see. I’ve been using it a lot this week and I love hos easy it applies with the Wayne Goss Brush 13. The Wayne Goss brush picks up the powder with ease and I love the diffuse fluffy brush. It almost gets better with age. Swatches of the blush is HERE and review of the Wayne Goss brush is HERE. I know I mention Tom Ford Platinum Cream Color for Eyes all the time. That’s because it’s fabulous. The easiest eyeshadow ever when you’re in a hurry. Or when you have a cold and want to do the minimal effort t not look dead. Review HERE.
I have already gone through one bottle of Zelens Z Pure. This is my second. I love Zelens and they’re such an amazing brand. This cleansing balm is more like a thick cleansing oil. It has a earthy green scent I love. It relaxes me at night. It rinses cleaner than an oil but not as much as a balm with emulsifiers. More to come. Miller Harris Rose en Noir is one of those rose fragrances I love because it’s not a traditional rose. It has an earthy deep scent to it. Very natural deep rose fragrance. Top notes: raspberry, violet leaf Egypt, petit grain citronnier. Middle notes: Rose Turkey, Poivre noir, nutmeg Java. Base notes: patchouli Indomesia, vetiver Haiti, tabac noir France, ambrette seed. I talked about it HERE.
Julisis is a brand I discovered on Cult Beauty. The Sun Emulsion SPF 30 is the best mineral sunscreen I have tried to date. I normally gravitate towards chemical sunscreens due to their clear appearance and lightweight feel. This Julisis sunscreen has all of those attributes of a chemical block. It goes on clear and has a very lightweight texture. It smells like citrus and contains apricot oil, sweet almond oil & vitamin E. It’s the first mineral block that hasn’t dried me out probably due to the oils. More to come.
I love Charlotte Tilbury. The Flawless Filter just launched. I grabbed shade no 4. This is a unique product, it’s a primer, highlighter and tinted product all in one. It has a slightly glossy sheen similar to Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Aura Morning Glory primer. The texture is similar. Except this one has a tan tint similar to foundation so it blends in easier. It’s nothing like Wonder Glow. More to come. Flawless Filter works really well with Light Wonder Foundation. Light Wonder is one of my favorite foundations. It’s lightweight, dewy and manages to look like skin. It’s also one of my favorite foundations. I wear shade no 6. Review HERE.
