2015 Beauty Edit.

It is nearly end of the year and tomorrow is officially 2016 and I know there is no other better way to put forth all those gorgeous beauty goodies into a beauty edit that I have been embracing all throughout the year. Besides, 2015 has been a remarkable year for me when it is related to beauty routine as I have been experimenting with various range of beauty products and finally, I’m selecting couple of them to showcase in front of you and hence, let’s see what are the cult beauty  favourites that I have been celebrating in my beauty regime all year long.

Skincare:

Obviously, skincare is one of those foremost beauty essentials that I have been very picky and splurging on as I’m aware that spending each penny onto skincare is an absolute must as it is going to serve as a second skin all day long. So, to start with, I would say that OZ Naturals HA Moisturising Serum is one of the best found in 2015 as I have been using it every day in my regular skincare routine and this serum is one of the beauty secrets to keep my skin supple and moist all day long. Then, Olay Essentials  Complete Care Day Cream is another great product that I can’t skip as it keeps my face hydrated and moisturised all throughout the day. Next, my winter skin saviour is none-other-than, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant as this wonder cream can instantly transforms my dry winter skin to super soft tender skin. Next, while moving onto hands, another intense moisturising cream that can withstand winter chill weather conditions is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Hand Treatment. Lastly, I absolutely adore my lip protectant as it assists me more than a lip balm which I’m proud enough to name it as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 and also, the added factor of SPF is much needed for all types of weather norms including rain, hot or cold.

Body Butters:

Firstly, I love body butters as they leave my skin silky satin soft and two of my heart-warming favourites are Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter and Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E.

Haircare:

Haircare is a must-have beauty essential that any beauty lover needs and I always head onto Kerastraight Rescue Creme when my hair needs a bit of TLC as it recovers my dry hair immediately and replenishes my hair back to normal and the other interesting hair product that I use is Matrix Biolage Voluma Therapie Full Lift Volumnising Conditioner as this product gives a deep conditioning statement to my hair and it also lifts my hair with a fluffy volumnising effect.

Nails:

Ciate London is definitely a newly found nail product of the year and moreover, I’m a great fan of Olivia Palermo and I’ve been completely adorning my nails with Ciate London Cha Cha Cha for the whole of summer months.

Makeup:

As a beauty addict,  we all know mascara has the shortest lifespan among all other beauty staples and that’s why I’ve been swapping mascara for every 4 months and three of the best that I want to mention here are Burberry Mascara In Midnight Black, Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara and Lancome Hypnose Mascara Volume. Next, the nude chic lipstick that I’ve been wearing it for millions of times is the mighty creamy lipstick, Lancome L’absolu Rouge Rose Nu. Well, when it comes to eyeshadow, I always get inspiration from the Parisian look and that’s why I mostly opted for two divine products that includes Lancome eyeshadow in the shade robin blue and MAC Fard A Paupieres. Lastly, the recent amazing innovation of Dior that has taken beauty to next level is Dior Addict Fluid Shadow in which case it can be applied either as an eyeshadow or as an eyeliner.

Perfume:

Besides all, I love perfumes and they are my all-time beauty assets that I can’t deny at all and I always prefer to have a range of perfumes lying on my dressing table and some of the key aromatherapy cult beauties are:

This is the section where I’ve found new discoveries on the beauty side and there are certainly couple of products that I certainly need to mention about right here. Let me introduce my first favourite haircare must-haves that is Garnier Ultimate Blends Conditioner – Honey Treasures. This product is so good and one should definitely have it a go as it is very affordable, value-for-money, paraben free and also a source of natural ingredients like honey, royal jelly and propolis. Furthermore, it is like a life saviour if you had a terrible bad hair day and it acts like an angel to your hair and you could also see visible results even after first few washes.

Next product is, Matrix Biolage Voluma Therapie Full-Lift Volumnising Conditioner.

24jul151

As like everyone, I like to do shopping but also, I would like to embrace the fact of using all the old products until to the end so that I could get myself indulged entirely upto the last bit of the product. So, that’s why, today I will be showing you some of the recent beauty product empties that I have been using those for a while and also used up completely to full perfection as the finished products were good in quality that also came along with an associated trademark of trust-worthy brand and hence with much anticipation, let me take you through straight away.

Burberry Mascara in Midnight Black No.1:

Burberry is a British brand that is well-known all over worldwide and they do products including clothing, footwear, bags, accessories and beauty products and I should say that every women out there just like me would be craving to have their luxury products to be filled in their beauty collections and while talking about the quality, one can’t deny the fact that their products are made out of pure perfection and their products lasts long too and hence, what more one could ask for? Besides, when you keenly look into the packaging of this product, you could able to see that it looks like a mascara filled in a rectangular bottled tube and while coming to the metallic top part, it has different versions of geometrical patterns which is just like the patterns that are on their scarves design that runs through all over the metallic part as well. Furthermore, this versatile mascara can able to give an even coverage from day to evening look effortlessly and the contents inside the mascara are so special that it instantly lifts up the lashes with bright voluminous look; plus, one could also define the look faultlessly with just a matter of quick time.

Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in deep:

Benefit is another must-have product to be in every women’s makeup bag and their products have significant features too which aids to create the look as desired. Additionally here, I have the brow pencil in deep colour as it literally matched with my brow colour instantly. Moreover, when it comes to the texture of the product, it is so smooth, smudge free and creamy which is ideal to sketch a well-defined brow in the same direction as the brow grows so as to give a natural look. In addition, it also gives a completed flawless look with the help of a spoolie brush that is connected to the other end of the pencil.

Maybelline NewYork Master Precise liquid eyeliner:

I love Maybelline NewYork products because of their quality, affordability and value-for-money. In here, I have the master precise liquid eyeliner and to its name, it is great to make a quintessential and precise eyeliner effortlessly. Also, the sharp sponge at the top is ideal to make a defined line either thin or thick as per sliding and tilting the tip to define the line as desired and also the sponge tip assists you to get the easy flow of the liquid eyeliner but also helps you to take the required amount to draw and hence the product also lasts long too.

Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Cream with SPF 15:

I cannot believe a day starting without this cream and I use this cream everyday without fail and this is one of those skin care product that I can’t skip at all as it acts as a shield for my skin protection since it has a factor of SPF 15 and it is also great as a moisturiser which sits on my skin and hydrating all day long under the makeup flawlessly and it is also exceptionally good for no-makeup makeup days as there is a constraint of sticking onto certain amount of beauty products to be minimum.

So, these are my recent beauty product empties and you could also catch up with all of the latest happenings in other platforms like Twitter // Instagram and Bloglovin’ too.

My 3 must-have head to toe luxury daily skin moisturisers.

15jul151

As we are living in the summer time, it is a proven fact that temperatures tend to rise up with souring mercury levels reaching high and hence, under these circumstances, our body gets dehydrated very easily which is of course is one of the major issue that happens during warmer months and also, you could not only feel from inside but also, it shows up on the outside too and hence, obtaining a better skin care routine is an ultimate necessary plus getting your skin protected against harsh UV rays is also a pre-requisite essential as well and that’s why, these days, I have tried to incorporate three exemplary components such as Olay Essentials Complete Care Day Cream, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment and Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter, that could keep my skin moist and hydrated all day throughout and hence, with no waste of time, let me get straight into it.

15jul152

Olay essentials Complete Care Day Cream:

I apply a blob of this cream and smear it all over my face to give an amazing moisturising effect onto my face and also, my face absolutely loves this cream as it takes care of my face all day throughout and it also protects my face against any severe weather conditions and it also has an additional factor of SPF 15 which also gives a bonus statement of overall coverage against the hard-hitting UV rays. Great tip: A very useful measure to follow-up on a no-makeup day is, after washing your face, you clean your face after the application of thin layer of Olay day cream onto your face and in this way, you get two benefits: one is you could ideally able to take away any soapy stuff that is on your face and the next thing is you could get an instant moisturising feel to your face right away.

15jul153

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment:

I have this hand-friendly luxury product in my bag all the time and whenever my hands look for some rehydrating mode, I rigorously apply it onto my hands and within a minute, all the moisturiser will be absorbed immediately and it leaves my hands hydrated for long-lasting time and the special part is, it doesn’t look sticky at all as it just gets melted into your skin straight away by leaving no trace of any cream on your hands.

15jul154

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter:

This cream always does stick onto its name and also, it is great while using it onto your damp skin which is just after the shower or bath and what you all need to do is, just take and apply the butter cream liberally onto your skin and work it gently in circular motion to give a nice light massage onto your skin and this which in turn also aids your skin to drink up all the wholesome goodness from the cream; plus, the substantial part is that even though the decadent cream is thick in texture, it just gets evaporated in no time at all and you could faultlessly get dressed up immediately after too. Moreover, this righteous butter has a duo-symphony of skin softening shea butter and plant based natural source of aloe vera richness, which also assists your skin to get replenished and rejuvenated while making your skin as baby soft and silky smooth as well. On the whole, I should say that this chunky pink tub containing body moisturising formula is so ethical that you might punctuate as you are wearing a velvet on top of your skin

All-in-all, my skin loves these three vital products and I can see a visible difference after started using regular application of these products onto my skin.

You could also catch up on all the latest updates onto my Twitter // Instagram // Bloglovin’ accounts too.

Happy Wednesday All!
