Pretty Product Questions

I love it when I get a quick question in my inbox.

Here are some beauty product ones that have filtered through lately:

What is your favourite highlighter?

After a couple of years of trying everything that glimmered enough to catch my eye I have settled with 4.

The creamy multi-tasker: NARS Multiple in “Copacabana”.

When I have dry skin days, this is a dream on the cheekbones. It is not called “the multiple” for no reason. It also doubles up as my saviour when it comes to crème blush. I use it to tone down, add a hint of shimmer or as an assistant in blending crème blush.

I also use a powder highlighter. I tend to reach for MAC’s Mineralised Skin Finish in the evenings in either, “By Candlelight” or “Soft & Gentle”. Shu Uemuras Glow On blush in 94 also works as a fabulous gold hued highlighter for me.

What are your current favourite BB creams?

I have 3 favourites:

Oriks Vit C BB cream

Big thanks to Bittenbefore!

I use this on days when my skin is chip pan oily as it’s oil control is pretty darn good.

Lioele Water Drop

Light coverage for “office and straight home” days. This has SPF 27 and sets to a fresh dewy finish.

Dr Jart Dew Drop Blue Label

The one I use the most. SPF27 moist, dewy and light so my skin doesn’t feel clogged. Sheer coverage that keeps looking fresh for hours.

Best My Beauty Diary Masks?

I love this brand of masks more than any other. There! I have declared my love.

I have not tried them all but from the ones I do have I especially like: White Peony Tea, Cooling mask (perfect for beach holidays), Sake and White Bulgarian Rose. I still want to try the Rice masks sometime.

UD or MUFE eyeliner?

Honestly? MUFE! So it is really sad that I cannot get hold of it so easily here. The one above was bought in HK thanks Bittenbefore for enabling me. That does not mean that I don’t like Urban Decay – I LOVE IT! The only reason I place MUFE a notch above is because it really is heavy duty stray proof.

I don’t use any other pencil liners other than these.

The next requested beauty post will shift the swatch spotlight over RED fings….I know, about time!
