Happy New Year to all my readers, I am currently beached on the couch after afternoon tea in Adare Manor, it was delicious! My husband volunteered to do the groceries, possibly in an attempt to stop me clothes shopping in Dunnes as I buy food. One of my 2019 resolutions is to buy less, and buy more quality items. I’ve definitely become more conscious of slow fashion and wearing what I have already more. Did you make any resolutions this January?
Anyway, onto some products that really worked for me in 2018 and will be repurchased in 2019.
The famous IT Cosmetics CC cream, I bought this on honeymoon over the summer, hence the dark colour. I’m going to pick up a more suitable shade for my winter, paler skin. It’s available in Arnotts now and BT online. I like it because it doesn’t cause my skin to breakout, it’s good coverage and it’s buildable if you want a more full coverage look.
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic, if you follow along on my Instagram page – Womenwhowearblack_blog, you’ll know I’m not a massive Charlotte Tilbury fan, I find it a bit hit and miss. However, I really like this. It’s a bronzer and blush in one, so the convenience alone is a winner for me. I find the colour of this particular one suits my skin type. There are a few to pick from.
I think I’ve spoken about this setting powder before. It’s translucent so won’t change your foundation colour, it doesn’t settle in your fine lines and it helps your makeup stay put. Buy the travel size if you’re unsure of it.
In my quest to find the perfect tan, that DOESN’T SMELL, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly. This is AMAZING. When I sprayed it on first, it was like summer in a bottle, you know the way a smell can bring you back, this brought me right back to holiday mode. It drys almost instantly, which is a perk for me, I don’t apply tan every week so if I’ve forgotten an occasion, I can put this on and head out the door.
My holy grail product when I breakout. This is really great, it dries out the spot (and surrounding skin, so apply with a cotton bud to be more precise) and I’m never without it.
Last but not least is this Chanel lip balm. With all the air conditioning, heat, drink over Christmas, my lips were dry and chapped and would generally be dry anyway. I’ve tried everything and this is the one I’ve found to be the most soothing and nourishing.
