We’ve tried plenty of fabulous products in VIP Towers this week, and it was hard to whittle them down to just five – but here are our top picks of the bunch:
Too Faced melted lipstick
We tried this out in ‘Chocolate Milkshake’ and can confirm two things: it smells like the inside of a Willa Wonka factory and is absolute bliss to apply – albeit hard to resist eating – and it has a long-lasting gorgeous, rich colour. Get yours for €20.00 in Debenhams.
Amazing Cosmetics concealer
We were told this is referred to as the ‘Magic Eraser’, but didn’t fully believe it until we tried it – and noticed we could cover up our dark circles and imperfections with just a pin drop amount. A bold statement, but possibly the best concealer we have ever tried. You can buy on Cloud 10 Beauty for €24.95.
A fake tan that doesn’t smell bad and adjusts to your natural skin tone? What is this sorcery, we thought when we heard about this product. But, after trying it out we can confirm that it gives a lovely, natural colour – but be warned, make sure you prep your skin first. The brand also does a great scrub that will get your skin primed and ready for tanning. Zen Tan is available €36.49 on Boots.ie.
Make Up Forever Pro Bronze Fusion
Imagine a world with water proof bronzer…. well now you can. Revolutionary, right? This gel-powder formula blends seamlessly for a lightweight, sunkissed glow. And the wavy surface pattern is specifically designed for optimal powder pick up. It’s available in six shades and two different finishes. Get yours for €36 here.
Viv Derma Comforting Gellee Cleanser
Do you have a good cleansing routine? Simply using some micellar water may not be enough to have your skin looking its best and brightest, and products like this go a long way into making your skin look amazing. This gellee cleanser turns from a honey-like consistency to a easy-to-apply milk on contact with water, leaving you with a super-luxurious deep night time cleanse. Have a look here for more.
