Hydra-Care Tinted Moisturizer
This is a great alternative to foundation and especially for summer. It gives your skin loads of hydration while it covers those little flaws – not that we have any you know!
The secret is in the corrector pigments that help to even out skin tone, smooth out fine lines and boost skin’s radiance.
The texture is smooth, glides on easily (I applied it with my foundation brush) and blends well. It covers and lasts, so you don’t feel “undone”. It’s also got a lovely smell and is packed with UV filters protect skin against pollution and free radicals.
Hydra-Care Tinted Moisturizer comes in a variety of shades, including; Blond 11 (my colour), Peche 12, Dore 13, Camel 14 and Havane 15. It’s available in a 50ml bottle and for R355.
This is my new favourite-handbag-must-have-gloss for the day. I love how it feels on my lips, although it doesn’t last too long (many glosses don’t on me though as I’m always licking my lips), but I do love putting more on!
It provides lips with an ultra shiny, ultra smooth and ultra sexy shine. Packed with silver and gold light-reflecting pigments that enhance the lips’ va-va-voom effect. The slanted sponge applicator makes it really quick and easy to apply as it follows the lips’ natural shape, so there’s no messy bits.
Gloss Appeal comes in different shades, including; Crystal 00, Ylang 01, Ginger 02, Sorbet 04, Orchid 06, Grape 07, Tender Rose 10 (my colour) and Sweet Fig 11. The 6ml bottle costs around R165
