7 sexy beauty buys that will elevate your look
Clay mask, face mist, mascara and more
It’s never a dull moment with these beauty buys, from instant eye-openers to a drool-worthy niche perfume. We’re hitting ‘Add to cart’ on the Ruby Organics’ Creme Highlighter which allows you to have Kim Kardashian West-worthy cheekbones while cleaning up your make-up routine. For highlighter noobs, the correct routine it to pat it on your cheeks, brow bones and eyelids for warm gold hue.
If you’re tired of perfumes that are too strong or too common, try the Etat Libre D’Orange, You Or Someone Like You. It starts off as mouth-watering minty (yes, mouth-watering!), and graduates into a comforting musky trail. Prepare for a flood of “you smell so good!” compliments…
7 best beauty buys to make this month
Creme Highlighter in Illuminate, Rs. 1,000
Clean up your make-up routine with this all-natural highlighter. Pat it on your cheeks, brow bones and eyelids for a sheer wash of warm gold. You’ll never find a reason to go back to the other stuff.
Etat Libre D’Orange, You Or Someone Like You, Rs.9,990/100ml EDP
This sure-shot crowd-pleaser gets off to a mouth-watering minty start (yes, mouth-watering!), and graduates into a musky trail that’s comforting enough for a hot summer.
Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Eye Gel, price on request
Massage this cooling gel around the eye contours to cut back your under-eye baggage.
L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Pre-essence, Rs.1,200
Just like with food, fermentation in a skincare formula breaks down active ingredients, making it easier for your skin to absorb them. It’s just what you need for a potent anti-ageing serum.
M.A.C Prep + Prime Fix+ Goldlite, Rs. 1,650/100ml
Everyone’s favourite face mist gets a shimmering upgrade. While you can still count on all the things you loved about the original, this one leaves a bronzy glow too.
Benefit BADgal Bang! Mascara, Rs. 2,010
The flashiest new entrant in mascara-land, ‘aero-particles’, claims to be inspired by space tech. Simply put, it’s a lightweight formula, which gives thick lashes that stay lifted all day.
Purearth Mitti Clay Masque, Rs. 5,393
This mask goes beyond the instant gratification of a deep cleanse. Its skin-loving oils and honey will also heal rosacea and sun damage, and reduce blemishes. Never let your clay mask fully dry up. Wash it off while it’s slightly wet to avoid dehydrating and irritating your skin.
