The renowned British blogger and self-confessed beauty obsessive Really Ree is the person to follow on Instagram for the latest product reviews and handy hacks. To help cheer up those who might be struggling a little bit this week as we go into our sixth week of lockdown, Ree is on hand to share the new-in products that have been cheering her up. While she might not be able to walk you around her local Space NK boutique, she has compiled her five favourite beauty buys from our New-In section. Over to Ree…
If you love fresh, dewy looking skin, Fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum was made for you. Apply it before your moisturiser, like a serum, in the morning and evening. Put a few drops into the palms of your hands and press over your face. It smells divine and with rose oil, rosehip oil, squalane, it is a treat for your skin. You can also pop it onto skin during the day to freshen-up your makeup – it gives your skin a new lease of life.
I am obsessed with this Brightening CC Palette from By Terry. It contains four skin-perfecting face powders, which are infused with nourishing skincare ingredients. If you have enlarged pores, you will love this palette. It’s easy to apply too; I take a big brush, sweep it across all four shades and apply to my cheekbones and across my forehead to brighten up my complexion. This palette is also great for eyes, I use the bronze shade across my eyelids. It takes seconds and also helps to smooth out slightly crepey eyelids.
Charlotte Tilbury’s clever Beauty Light Wands are now available in two new Pillow Talk shades and they are beautiful. Squeeze the formula onto the cushion applicator and dot directly onto your face anywhere you’d like to glow. For me, that means the top of my cheekbones, just above my brow bone and my Cupid’s bow. Then, you just blend with your fingers. If you find it’s too glow-y, buff it in with your foundation brush.
Speaking of Charlotte Tilbury, another product I’m currently trying and loving is her new Magic Serum Crystal Elixir. I’ve been testing it for a while and it is brilliant at firming, smoothing and hydrating. You can use it in the morning and evening, but it’s also very good for mixing into your foundation if you want to supercharge your base and amplify your glow.
Becca has just launched Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter and it comes in five shades. I’ve been using Passion and Creativity. The latter is my favourite and if you love Champagne Pop, Creativity will be the one for you too. You can apply it directly onto your skin or mix it into your primer, foundation and even your body lotion. The texture is a cross between a gel and a serum, and a little goes a long way. Again apply it where you want your skin to glow. I also love it across the eyes for a glossy lid look.
