Okay, so I’m jealous because you are going on a trip. I’m sure you have a list of places you want to see, restaurants you want to eat at etc etc. But what’s a trip abroad without some shopping. Especially stuff you don’t find in India and so that you don’t wander around like a lost Indian puppy in the aisles of Sephora and Walgreens, Iv put together a list of skincare / beauty must haves that should feature on your shopping list. Have a look :
NARS Radiant Creamy concealer $ 30 – Love this stuff !! Great coverage but still lightweight and natural looking. When I have a rough night, this one is like your best friend that won’t tell or let anyone else know. I cant stress enough on how this is seriously the best concealer I have tried till date.
Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre £ 20 – Every makeup artist (and me) LOVES this moisturizer. This is one of the French skincare gems I found during my recent trip to Paris. Works wonders in keeping the skin hydrated and can also double up as a primer, makeup remover or after shave cream. Talk about versatile ! Girls with oily skin may find this a tad bit heavy , but if your skin needs moisture PLEASE get this. Its amazing.
Any Skinceuticals product – I’ve done a separate detailed post on their Vitamin C serum CE Ferulic. Its my skincare secret sauce that fights signs of ageing, dark spots and imparts radiance and moisture to my skin. But in general this brand is da bomb. Its very geeky in the sense that all of their formulations are lab tested and patented but that’s what I like about them. They don’t waste time in gimmicky packaging and the like, they get to the point with some very seriously useful products. My next buy from them is going to be the Eye Gel they have.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette $ 49 – This will come as no surprise, I have blog named after this shade ! Peachy pinks, corals, bronzes, and deeper purples – a stunning collection of 18 colours. The formulation of the eye shadows is great and so is the colour payoff. Got this for my cousin a while back and you can do so much with this pallette.
Huda Beauty Lip Colors $ 27 – A great choice if you like liquid matte lipsticks. These are way more comfortable to wear than the Kylie lip kits – but don’t last the same amount of time ! Heartbreaker is a gorgeous red and Trophy wife is a great plummy pink for dusky girls.
Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer INR 1900 – The formulation is lightweight, hydrating and doesn’t settle into lines. It glides easily on the skin and works well on dark circles and blemishes. A lighter shade can be used to highlight and a darker for contouring the face. My sister got this from abroad and she swears by it.
Tom Ford Lipsticks : The reason Im obsessed with this range is the finish it gives on the lips. It just hugs your lips and kind of blurs away any wierd lines on them. I love that these hydrate my lips and also give such a polished, finished kinda feel. I realised I haven’t actually featured these here yet which is criminal. Thing that could be better- their longevity. Definitely need a re-application and also very few shades that suited me.
Barbara Sturm Sundrops: So this genius invention is basically drops of SPF you can apply over your makeup. So you don’t actually need a sunscreen – that thick goopy thing that gives you protection? These SPF 50 drops are super lightweight and can just be worn over your makeup without a heavy feeling. Im dying to get my hands on them.
