In the world of million cosmetics products and limited budgets, we know how hard it can be to choose how to spend your hard-earned money. That’s why we’ve decided to make it ever so easier for you to know where to invest. We’re introducing What to buy? – a selection of must-haves that we can’t live without and soon neither will you. Each month we’ll tell you about a single product that we’ve tested and loved, providing you with the links to webshops where you can order it with worldwide deliveries, so you’ll be just a couple of clicks away from what’s hot right now.
Although given a choice and an inexhaustible source of money, all three of us would mostly shop for high-end ecological cosmetics, we have never been prejudiced against cheap drugstore brands, and actually, in some cases we would prefer a L’Oréal mascara and a blusher from Essence to their more expensive and noble alternatives. As a good example of our impartiality we’ve appointed Maybelline‘s Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur as our make-up hero of the month. Besides the fact that you can purchase it at your local supermarket, it also comes from a line designated for teenagers. Can it even get more accessible than that?
Leaving the name, price and ingredients list aside, the product itself is a pure wonder! It’s a super light water-based primer, that you can use under your foundation or just on its own as a sort of a CC cream (or instead of any other “alphabet” phenomena). It hydrates, refreshes and smooths the appearance of the skin, making the complexion brighter and more even. Unlike other primers we’ve tested before Instant Fatigue Blur is actually visible on your face, but in a good way. Although it doesn’t provide any coverage, in some mysterious (and most probably very chemical) way it blurs away any spots and irregularities making it glorious two-second-foundation for I-woke-up-like-this-look which we love to rock on occasions like going to a gym or walking the dog – not perfect, but fabulous.
It’s available in two shades: one with pinkish undertone for rose-cheeked ladies and a warmer apricot one for those of you with olive skin tone. And the cool thing is that because the formula itself barely has any tint, we are sure that it will work for your complexion, regardless of how dark you are, as we’ve seen it looking fantastic on both very pale girls and women of colour.
