Beauty products that are worth the hype
There is nothing more challenging to let go of than an expensive beauty product that doesn’t suit your skin type or doesn’t give you the expected results. You will relegate them to the backbench but not part till they expire. What if we sift the best from the rest and share a list of products worth the splurge? Here’s a selection of beauty buys worth every cent spent on them in the long run.
It’s one of those beauty buys you wouldn’t know how much you need unless you start using it. It dries and styles your hair with minimal skill and effort giving a salon-finished look at home. The curling iron barrels (part of a set of attachments) give bouncy, tight or relaxed curls in a matter of minutes if your hair is as straight and long as mine. Otherwise, it could even be seconds. And why do I feel it’s worth the investment? Its heat adjustment technology (borrowed from a similar technology that powers jet engines) never lets the hair burn or get heat damaged.
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Magnet Black Mascara
Benefit aces in making high-performing mascaras, but with the magnet mascara, they have staged a coup of sorts in the universe of lashes. Its unique lengthening formula makes the lashes look up to 40 per cent longer. The wand has custom-designed zig zag bristles, making it super easy to use. Just one swipe up, and you get lifted, longer lashes.
Dr Barbara Sturm Face Mask
If you want a minimalist fuss-free routine but excellent results, try this mask made of kaolin, chamomile, aloe vera, Vitamin E and purslane extract. It soothes irritated skin to hydrate acne-prone skin, which otherwise tends to get inflamed and flaky. The result is undoubtedly visibly calmer, smoother skin. The application brush is the softest and one of the best I have tried.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick
If you have the willpower to stick to one and resist the temptation of hoarding the latest pretty highlighters, then it’s worth picking Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. Gorgeousness aside, when swirled with a brush and applied, the shades lend ‘lit from within’ natural glow. The best part is that you can control the effect you want by using the colours together or separately, so you get a palette in one tiny box. And the versatility doesn’t end there. You can use them on the eyes as well.
