Skin and Beauty Haul; Avène, Bondi Sands, Nars, Morphe + more
I went to Ghana last month, beforehand I did a quick skin and beauty shop online with Look Fantastic and Boots. Check out what I got below!
My friend used the Nars soft matte foundation (shade IGUAÇU) on me for my birthday (see here), anything Busola uses I'm always curious to try out myself after; glad I did. The foundation is great for oily prone skin and a little goes a long way. I usually only put on 1-2 small pumps which does the job. I like how lightweight it feels yet still gives good coverage.
I've been using the thermal spring water for years, it's great especially if you get skin irritation. I have eczema so it soothes and cools if a flare up occurs. It's also good for hot weather, travel, sun burn and can be used as a setting spray.
My first time using it and it's now a staple. I used to use the La Roche Posay SPF, but it ran out and the price wasn't making sense! Bondi Sands is very affordable and you get alot of product. Lightweight, non greasy and doesn't leave a grey./ashy cast on your face. A huge pro is that it's non fragrant and doesn't irritate your skin.
Morphe and Rimmel
I also picked up the Morphe setting spray and Rimmel kind and free pressed powder. First time I'm trying both products. Again, the powder is very affordable. I like using a mix of high end and drug store products.
To be honest I saw this primer on Tik Tok, majority of the make up tutorials I was watching it kept on popping up, so curiosity got me. I get it, it's very affordable, really mattifies the t zone area and is a nice base for make up. This and the Laura Mercier canvas primer 10/10.
Revolution & Maybelline
I really stocked up with the setting sprays! The superfix spray is nothing special tbh, Urban Decay All Nighter is the best one I've used so far, I highly recommend. I'v heard the Charlotte Tilbury one is 10/10 too.
Again, I saw this on Tik Tok and what the girls said was true. I like to set under my eye using a powder puff and the coverage is amazing.
I highly recommend Nars if you're looking to try a new foundation, the Morphe setting spray and Elf primer especially!
