BEAUTY | Underrated Beauty Products
These are some seriously underrated beauty products that need to be raved about…
I feel as though all of these products are not talked about enough – maybe I’m just living under a rock and haven’t heard people mention them, but I read enough blogs and watch enough YouTube videos to see that all of these products aren’t being raved about (in my opinion anyway)!
Most of these products are new to my beauty collection and I’m so glad I discovered them. Today they will be given the limelight, to shine and show off how amazing they are.
Lipcoté Browcote – £6.99
I received this little gem in a Glossybox (I think it was December’s edition) and I cannot recommend this brow gel enough. I’ve been looking for a brow gel to replace my Benefit Gimme Brow, but at half the price and I believe I have found it in this little guy. I couldn’t be more pleased. It’s like super glue for your eyebrows, minus the sort of crusty (I’m so sorry, such a horrible word..) feeling you get when they set in place. It’s the perfect size and I love how tiny the applicator is.
NailsInc Nail Polish, Coleville Mews (only available in Gel) – £15.00
I love shades like this, nude’s but with a little bit of something to them. I love the more grey toned nudes as well. I received this in a Cohorted beauty box back at the end of 2015 (have you noticed the theme of beauty box love yet?) and I was excited to try it out. I had never tried a NailsInc polish before, but boy was I impressed! The staying and non-chipping power of this nail polish is insane – if I remember rightly, this polish lasted a week on my nails before chipping and even then the chipping was minimal. Very bloody impressive!
YSL Touche Éclat Foundation – £31.50
Another new edition to my makeup collection. I took the plunge and decided to purchase this foundation, as I had heard a couple of great reviews but I wanted to try it for myself. The colour match is perfect – it gives me enough warmth and colour to my corpse like pale face, without looking like it’s five shades too dark for me. It lasts all day and just keeps on looking better throughout the day. It gives you a flawless looking finish, that isn’t too matte or dewy – it’s basically the perfect foundation and you all n e e d it in your makeup loving lives.
Ciate London Wonderland Mascara – £19.50
I briefly spoke about this mascara in my Chloe Morello palette post and it’s safe to say that it’s been a massive hit with me. I never normally like mascara’s like this one – what with the fat wand that normally makes my lashes clumpy – but I seem to be loving it at the moment, paired with my Benefit Roller Lash. They seem to be a match made in heaven right now and I’ve been using them together pretty much every day!
Garner Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash, 200ml – £3.99 £2.66
Now this is something you all need to go out and buy now! If you thought the normal Micellar water was good, this stuff is even better and it washes your face at the same time – win win!? There is literally no makeup left on my face whatsoever after I have used this facial wash and it’s awesome – super quick and easy and so affordable.
The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops, Darkening – £10.00
I purchased this bottle of darkening drops (that will last you absolutely ages by the way) towards the end of last year, after I had been away on holiday and my foundation was just ever so slightly too light for me. At first, when I mixed these drops with my foundation it sort of made it go a slightly weird grey shade, but once applied to my face the colour match was perfect and not grey at all! I would definitely recommend these to anyone over purchasing the same expensive foundation in a darker colour!
theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, Sincere – £15.00
Now I don’t know why, but I really have not heard much at all about theBalm’s liquid lipsticks. I’m hoping my post will make them a little more popular, as they are soo understated and deserve a lot more attention and fuss than they get! To be honest, I purchased this on a whim because I was intrigued to see the quality of these liquid lipsticks as most of theBalm’s products are amazing. I was definitely not disappointed at all! This lipstick is one of the best liquid lipsticks I’ve tried – the longevity is great, they’re not drying at all and the pigmentation is as expected – i n s a n e. This lipstick also smells amazing, it’s got a minty chocolate vibe to it – sort of like an After Eight!
There are some of the products that I think are underrated in the beauty world at this moment in time! They’re all such great products and I would recommend all of them. They’re all also fairly new products in my collection, which I love because I don’t normally venture away from my normal day-to-day products.
So if you’re thinking about taking the plunge and purchasing any of these products, then I urge you to!
